At the record store with Ron and Leon (Part 1)

Here is the Ron and Leon cheer:

Ron and Leon, 

Hand in hand.

Discount hand jobs,

Fake suntans!

Leon and I decided to take a trip to our very favorite record store, Lost Weekend Records.  Of course, before we took off on our adventure, we had to nourish our delicate bodies.  We stopped into Katrina’s café and ordered quickly making sure to ask several times, “Is it TOTALLY organic?”

The lady at the register answered, “all our and ingredients are locally sourced and fresh from farm to table.”

“You stupid bitch!” Leon responded.  

We got our food, ate, and smiled at one another for 2 straight minutes without blinking. We belched, battled, banged, barked, begged for the check then bounced.  Leon said “Audi 5000” and we were off to Lost Weekend.

Right before we entered the store Leon looked at me and may or may not have said, “I have been enjoying getting slapped in the face and then spit right in my mouth before sex.  Foreplay is a huge dynamic to help maintain relationships.”

“Foreskin!” I responded.

We then started browsing the stacks.  I tend to lose my mind when I start looking and forget the plethora of albums I have on my wish list.  I also wish I was taller and wish I was a baller.  I was floating around the store in a haze and fortunately Leon noticed and whispered “foreskin” in my ear and brought me right down to earth.  I think he also put his hand in my back pocket.

I was ready to hunt.  I looked for Mudhoney’s My Brother the Cow and Piece of Cake but yielded nothing.  I then saw Parquet Courts’ Sympathy for Life and put that at the top of my shortlist to purchase today. While looking, I considered the Osees Levitation Sessions, both parts 1 and 2, Cedric Burnside’s I Be Tryin, The Soundtrack to Licorice Pizza, Ornette Coleman’s Free Jazz, Howling Wolf’s Moanin at Midnight and the Foo Fighters 1st L.P.  I settled for The Parquet Courts album, which I said I would get in Vinyl Pull No. 26.  I would not lie to you guys– unless you asked me if I wanted to give your spouse the pork salad.

As for Leon, I looked over and he was zipping up his fly and had Kenny Loggins’ Footloose in his hand. He promised he didn’t come.

Leon bought, after several other considerations, the Cars second release. 

It was a productive trip as it is every time I visit Lost Weekend.  If you have any questions or just want to talk to somebody with a very wide and eclectic taste in music the owner Kyle is always very helpful, interesting, and informative.  He has yet to give me a bad recommendation. 

Leon recommended that I lose five pounds and swallow more when I talk.  He said its gross to watch me salivate and I reminded him of what he said about foreplay earlier.

“Foreskin!” he rebutted.

And we were off to the next store, R.P.M. records…our adventure will continue tomorrow, it’s a real cliffhanger, stay tuned!

I am putting Parquet Courts’ Sympathy for life on the turntable now, I am really looking forward to hearing this great album on wax.  As for you, my dear reader, you should go to Lost Weekend and see for yourself.
