      • VGR Testimonial #15 Kenny Wilburn (The Rise & Fall of Ziggy Stardust)


        from Julian Dalrymple Added

        A "bunch of glamed-out men dressed as ugly women" grab hold of Kenny's imagination and give him refuge among the stars of David Bowie's "Ziggy Stardust". David Bowie's outsider, 'alien' rockstar views of earth were most suitable for the sci-fi, comic book enthusiast Kenny giving him a sense of belonging in this extra bizarre world.

                  from Record Store Day Added

                  Years ago someone told me that 1,200 high school kids were given a survey. A question was posed to them: Have you ever been to a stand-alone record shop? The number of kids that answered "yes" was... zero. Zero? How could that be possible? Then I got realistic and thought to myself, "Can you blame them?" How can record shops (or any shop for that matter) compete with Netflix, TiVo, video games that take months to complete, cable, texting, the Internet, etc. etc? Getting out of your chair at home to experience something in the real world has started to become a rare occurrence, and to a lot of people, an unnecessary one. Why go to a bookstore and get a real book? You can just download it. Why talk to other human beings, discuss different authors, writing styles and influences? Just click your mouse. Well here's what they'll someday learn if they have a soul; there's no romance in a mouse click. There's no beauty in sitting for hours playing video games (anyone proud of that stop reading now and post your opinion in the nearest forum). The screen of an iPhone is convenient, but it’s no comparison to a 70mm showing of a film in a gorgeous theater. The Internet is two-dimensional…helpful and entertaining, but no replacement for face-to-face interaction with a human being. But we all know all of that, right? Well, do we? Maybe we know all that, but so what? Let's wake each other up. The world hasn't stopped moving. Out there, people are still talking to each other face-to-face, exchanging ideas and turning each other on. Art houses are showing films, people are drinking coffee and telling tall tales, women and men are confusing each other and record stores are selling discs full of soul that you haven’t felt yet. So why do we choose to hide in our caves and settle for replication? We know better. We should at least. We need to re-educate ourselves about human interaction and the difference between downloading a track on a computer and talking to other people in person and getting turned onto music that you can hold in your hands and share with others. The size, shape, smell, texture and sound of a vinyl record; how do you explain to that teenager who doesn't know that it's a more beautiful musical experience than a mouse click? You get up off your ass, you grab them by the arm and you take them there. You put the record in their hands. You make them drop the needle on the platter. Then they'll know. Let's wake each other up. As Record Store Day Ambassador of 2013 I’m proud to help in any way I can to invigorate whoever will listen with the idea that there is beauty and romance in the act of visiting a record shop and getting turned on to something new that could change the way they look at the world, other people, art, and ultimately, themselves. Let's wake each other up. http://www.recordstoreday.com

                    It’s probably not shocking that one of our favorite film categories is MOVIES ABOUT RECORD STORES. For our OFFICIAL FILM OF RECORD STORE DAY 2013 we’ve chosen a doozy: Last Shop Standing: The Rise and Fall and Rebirth of the Independent Record Shop. It’s based on a book by Graham Jones, directed by Pip Piper, and we think you’ll dig it too. More details to come on its US premiere, and how you can get a copy for yourself.
