This week’s Vinyl Community Rewind is a tribute to my friend Dalton who passed 5 years ago. It seems fitting that this would come up in the timeline only 8 days from the actual date five years ago. I have a blog post ready for his actual date, but for this, I made a video clip of my friend Dalton that I found while converting my old video tapes to digital.
This was a day that we shot video of us outside playing hacky-sack and listening to music. It was one of those warm pre-spring days with snow still in melting piles here and there. I was recovering from a cold and you can hear me coughing. Being outside and active for hours probably didn’t help.
That day we also were working on the mystical art of making a mix tape. “Songs About Rain”. There were problems from the get-go. For some reason we were having issues with the CD player as we were trying to get The Cure song “Prayers For Rain” added to the tape. I don’t remember the exact issue, only that we had to redo it like 4 times.
It became one of those moments we referenced continuously throughout our history.
“It may be hard, but it’s no “Songs About Rain”.
Miss you dude.
