@Devin B: my info is hopelessly out of date, but there used to be a bunch of stores on Rue Keller just west of the Bastille and La Marais. I went to a store on that street a few times back in '03 that I think eventually became Born Bad Records. It was where I first picked up one of the Ethiopiques series (volume 4, a banger). Nevertheless, research the street to see if any of the vinyl shops are still around.

@Fred, I owe you a sort of apology for stupid touristy remarks about Paris.
Don't know the city intimately and came to it through the tired old lens of art history; but we sat on a beach at Sete and had an extremely enlightening conversation with an Algerian Au Pair.
Also realize that like most established western cities, Paris itself was partly an historic theme park surrounded for many miles by fairly desperate suburbs.

@Fred, there are about 42,000 homeless people within the city of L.A.; an unforgivable tragedy.
There are around 100 languages spoken in L.A., we're proud of that.
Our older suburbs have been absorbed into the city, beyond which are exurbs.
Just wanted to say that I know Paris, like any great city, is as much a brand and a fantasy as it is an actual place.

Coel, hope you still have those! Early Whole Earth Catalogues are like the adult version.( I love paper!)

Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/30/18 4:59pm Linda Lee:

i'm with you, geezerette. wondering: do we love paper because of our associations with certain kinds of printed matter .. or because of its intrinsic qualities?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/30/18 5:00pm fred:

@digiclam: Médiathèque musicale de Paris, Forum des Halles, 8 Porte Saint Eustache, from September 27 to November 8
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/30/18 5:00pm Linda Lee:

& yes i do own a number of early Whole Earth Catalogues & i love them in part because i loved them in 1972. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/30/18 5:02pm Linda Lee:

& this is because of the enormous possibilities they pointed to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/30/18 5:02pm coelacanth∅:

i like paper too. though i'm thankful for kindles, for all these youngsters who are desensitized to electromagnetic radiation, for the trees it saves, i just wont read a book if that's my only option. i just got 3 books from thriftbooks in the mail yesterday. very happy i found this company, since i'm loath to support amazon.

to hell with amazon, honestly.
thing is, of course, if you don't buy *new* books, it's you or the landfills.

Linda Lee, intrinsic qualities; tactility,the sound of rustling, scent of print...

i just checked myself...the beach boys song came first!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/30/18 5:06pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

From a designer perspective, (my own POV), paper is far superior to digital because the designer is in absolute control of how content is absorbed. You manage eye-travel, the entry-points, the pace of reading, introduce strategic interruptions & disturbances when useful, etc.

But with digital, you give up that power to the reader's fekkin' device, which re-interprets your work in different ways. No control, no quality assurance, design is dead dead dead.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/30/18 5:07pm Linda Lee:

yes. & scale.

i think it' s just cute as heck.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/30/18 5:09pm coelacanth∅:

Linda i only buy used books. there's a book i really want but i haven't found it but new; so i wait.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/30/18 5:10pm Linda Lee:

Rev, this could be why i'm actually repulsed by digital reads :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/30/18 5:10pm Linda Lee:

same here, coel ~ there's plenty to fill the time. :-)

hello Scott and everyone!
@ Linda Lee -- thanks to my Mom, i have "The Last Whole Earth Catalogue" (cover price: a whopping $5.00!) -- i am guessing precisely because of those POSSIBILITIES . . .
my Mom was not exactly an "activist" but she cared deeply about the state of the Universe -- and even though i was only 13 in 1972, i think she understood that i did too . . . .
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/30/18 5:46pm Linda Lee:

brilliant. glad you have it. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/30/18 5:48pm Linda Lee:

$5.00 was a commitment for sure :-)

Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/30/18 5:52pm TDK60:

The only time I got to see Stereolab, our car driver was late picking us up, so we only caught a few songs at their end of their set.
