Cool Shit 3/26

I'm a sucker for lists of cool places on this big blue marble we call Earth. This one even had a few I've never heard of.

It's difficult to have too strong an opinion on a list that is essentially based on opinion. But I'll still give it a try. This list of essential albums to own on vinyl seems a little short sighted, and very "modern." For example, it has no Pink Floyd albums, which, while it might be cliche to have them on such a list, that doesn't mean they don't deserve to be on it. Other choices I might suggest would be Steely Dan, any OTHER Radiohead album than the one they chose and Yes. And that's just off the top of my head.

Rolling Stone interviewed (separately) the living members of Pink Floyd and discussed the band in general, and the classic Dark Side of the Moon.

And speaking of Dark Side of the Moon, here's a writer who allegedly is listening to the album for the first time, which...what?

Care to see what the most popular file is in the FBI's vault of declassified documents?
