Liquid Filled Vinyl Records Exist, And Some Of Them Are Super Gross

Video: Vinyl nerds love limited editions, and one of the rarest subsets of gimmick records are the liquid-filled variety. You read that right — liquid-filled vinyl.

Think back on the last two weeks of your life. Have you felt like part of your soul was missing? Have you noticed an eerie silence ringing in your ears? Did you wake up in a cold sweat at 3:28 am last night and scream, “GODDAMMIT EDWARD, YOU GAVE US A SINGLE, BUT WHERE IS THE MUSIC VIDEO?”


This Chatbot Is Like Having A Music Genius In Your Pocket

Finding a good chatbot in the current sea of mediocrity is nearly impossible. Most don’t work, and the ones that do are either too limiting or too annoying. But Record Bird’s new music-obsessed bot is something I would actually use.
