Besides the fact that it's made by ostriches?

It's the perfect way to carry home your new vinyl!!! Perfect fit!

+1 on the Ostrich products!!! I have an Ostrich saddle bag on my bike. It is a thing of utilitarian beauty! Also, it does not sway one bit! d2, those look great and I love me some vinyl and tube amps!

Actually, truth be told... i'm not all that impressed with the Ostrich bag. It fits my stuff and it looks smart, but Acorn bags are made MUCH better with more thought put into their design. I'm just waiting for them to come out with a pannier. I think tomorrow their new boxy rando bag will arrive. Woot! Yeah, i'm a bag fiend.

I will give ostrich this though.... their buckle/strap system is very quick and easy. Definitely one of my favorites.

Now back to vinyl.... I just picked up a new Technics 1210 M5G so if anyone wants to buy my very lightly used Music Hall MMF 2.1 let me know!

That is the reason I got it. It is also the reason I have not gotten an Acorn, bucles & straps. That said the new boxy Rando bag from Acorn is on my short list......

Not in the DJ sense if that's what you're asking.
I just started getting back into vinyl myself this past year. I really like the sound and since the mp3 revolution I almost never listen to music through my stereo, so i decided to keep using mp3 for the car, computer, etc and for the house I'm spinning vinyl. And the cool thing is if you buy new release vinyl, you almost always get a coupon inside to download the full album of high quality mp3's for free.
And I'm a designer/artist/photographer and always loved album art design so I just love the experience of buying the records, opening them up and checking out the cool artwork, and the whole overall experience. The only thing i hate is that they don't flip themselves over. This is actually worse with the newer releases because the albums are longer than they used to be. Lots of albums have to go to two discs but it's not like there are twice as many songs as the old albums so there are less songs per side in order to spread them out over 4 sides, when maybe they really only needed 3 sides. So less songs per side = more flipping.
Right now I have just a few dozen, but that's growing.

That sounds cool. I was a DJ/collector for 10+ years. In that time I collected 1,000+ records. No tapes, CDs, MP3, etc.

Note: I wasn't one of those fade in-fade out DJs.
