It was a drizzly Sunday afternoon in the Rose City. I had just said goodbye to my son after a nice weekend together, met my ex-wife's partner, and was looking forward to the evening when I would return home and to Gayle. Taking all this in together, I was feeling a little "Gaga", complete with a personal vision of "Bad Romance" running through my head. Just then, the sparkling Jackpot crown greeted me as I walked up Burnside towards Powell's Books.
Good things come in small packages (or store space). Jackpot has a nice vinyl selection and I easily found Alejandro calling my name in the nicely varied CD selection. Yes, all of this is available digitally somewhere, but the time between dying technology and death can be a very long time. Just ask my Dad about his still working 8-Track player. In the meantime, you'll find me here and similar places incidental to my various travels.
