For so long I have wanted a refurbished Gramophone or Victrola … I love it’s hollow echo and crackles. Especially nice (in my daydream) on a warm summer night with the breeze passing through … (Oh, this is an old farmhouse with creaky wood floors and there is some dashing man, probably Robert Redford… hmm, no, let’s make it Christian Bale. So Christian is in town with National Geographic magazine – or no, to build a field of dreams – wait … he’s a drama teacher at the HS and I just faked my drowning to escape my evil husband and start over.here … Well, I just hope this doesn’t end up being David Lynch’s, Inland Empire (it began with a gramophone shot) Oh forget the daydream… !!
This certainly isn’t as good as the original but if you have more modern sensibilities you might like this. (I…still want the original)
There is also this modern interpretation of a victrola by Ben Blanc It doubles as a liquor cabinet
Title Quote: Mary Coleridge
** This was the song that inspired this daydream … a modern day song (It’s Raining // Room Eleven) but would sound enchanting on an old player.
