get lost. take that train. read for hours so time passes faster. talk with strangers. say hello to dogs. walk down streets you’ve never been to before. look up to the sky. go to coffee shops. tell that barista that you think her shirt is cute. take pictures with your polaroid camera. buy post cards. ask random people what their mantra is. go into that hipster looking vinyl shop and support the owner by buying a record by his favorite band. laugh with people you’ve just met. exchange numbers. ask for book recommendations. buy that book in the book store right around the corner. take the bus to a park. watch the sunset. remember that you are loved. take the train back home. hang the polaroids up your wall. continue exploring and learning. learn to love life.
Records are very delicate, and need to be handles in a very specific way.
Ensure Your Hands are Clean: No matter how you hold your records, your hands should be clean. You don’t want them to become dirty.
Don’t Touch the Grooves: I’m sure we all know this, but you’d be surprised by the number of people who hold their records by the grooves. Your hands, no matter how clean they are (which again, they should be) have natural oils on them. If that oil gets into the grooves, dust can easily become attracted to it, and get stuck to the record.
Don’t Pinch the Edge: This is a common way of holding records, but this can be bad too. When you pinch the edge, the oils on your hand get into the lead in groove and that distributes across the record.
Handle by the Edge and the Label: This is how you should handle your records. While being careful not to touch the grooves, while taking the record out of the sleeve you should support the label with your fingers and the edge with your thumb. Consequently, you should hold the record by the edges.
I hope this was helpful in understanding how to handle records! If you have any questions, feel free to shoot us a message!
