Digital DJ

Just because the world of music has gone digital doesn't mean you have to abandon the hip vinyl aesthetic.

Verbatim makes a line of recordable CD-R's called Digital Vinyl that look like an old 45 record. These have been around for a while (I found a review from a year and a half ago) but I only just saw one in person when my coworker (and author of the acclaimed novel Grosse Pointe Girl) brought some in today.

The CD's even have the ridges that really feel like you could throw them on the wheels of steel (not recommended).

The latest packs offer the discs in a variety of label colors that even have a space to name your mix. (eg. Sideburns, Paisley, and Bellbottoms Vol. 1)

I will definitely scoop some of these to liven up the CD collection, unless someone wants to hook it up for the upcoming celebration.

  • FYI - Amazon's having a sale on these where you can get 25 for $9.99: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00009WO51/102-6680828-4540128?v=glance. That's actually much cheaper than I thought they'd be.
