Southern California Whole Foods shoppers will now be able to stock up on fresh vinyl during their next grocery shopping trip. No, vinyl is not a new, leafy green hybrid that people are eating. I’m talking about records. Last week, the grocery store opened record stores in five of its 340 locations. While perusing the aisles for overpriced, artisan chocolate (which I happen to love so much that paying $8 a bar seems like NBD), you can cruise for the new Daft Punk album, that Rolling Stones record that’s missing from your collection or purchase a pair of LSTN headphones  – the company donates a portion of the proceeds to charity.

RIP Adam Yauch
MCA from the Beastie Boys has passed away at the age of 47. Read More »

The Beastie Boys lost founding member Adam “MCA” Yauch today, but his memory will live on through the band’s nine amazing albums.

Club went through and explained more than 170 Beasties references. We’ve picked out our ten favorite, after the jump. Keep reading »

What do old records and a disorganized bookshelf have in common? Turns out you can use one to tame the other. All it takes is hot water and about 20 minutes to turn a vinyl record into a unique bookend. If you don’t have any LPs lying around, or find it too heart-wrenching to repurpose your own vinyls, a trip to the record store bargain box–or your grandmother’s attic–is in order. Trust me: somewhere there’s a scratched copy of “Mungo Jerry” just waiting to be incorporated into your home decor. [Via DIY Life]

Your Bookshelf Never Sounded Better

Keep your books in place with these recycled records. Give a pair of these custom-made vintage vinyl bookends a spin and lend old-skool charm to any room. Just because you can’t listen to your favorite records anymore doesn’t mean you can’t decorate with them.

Two Girls, One Pizza Pie

Well this world record looks like a fun one. Erin O’Keefe and Amy Milano endeavored to take the Guinness World Record RecordSetter.com title for Most Tandem Pizza Slice Face Slaps in 15 Seconds. Very creative! Watch as they accomplish a grand total of 174 tandem slice slaps. Adds a whole new meaning to the term “pizza face.” All that grease couldn’t have been good for their complexions.

Spin Your Vinyl Vertically

After many years of function, my record player bit the dust last week. In trying to find a replacement, I ran across this bad boy over at Urban Outfitters. The deal? You mount this sucker to the wall and it lets you play records vertically. In other words, it masquerades as art on an empty wall and lets you clear off valuable counterspace. It’s one half old-fashioned, one half totally new-fangled. Just my speed. As in 33 or 45 rotations per minute.
