In the meantime, I thought I'd point the camera at the Rumpus Room wall, where I like to display a growing collection of old record albums.
I had the wall covered with Christmas albums over the holidays, so I needed to get something different up there next. Lately I've been interested in album art that represents different slices of life from the 1950s and 60s, and with tonight being the premier of Mad Men season 5 (finally!), lets get in a mid century party mood.
The old Uncle is not an accomplished dancer, but when there's a twisting song on the record player, I like to get out there and shimmy, and I keep finding more twist-themed albums all the time. Chubby Checker earned his teen-idlehood with The Twist. And we've got a few other teen idols hanging out here in the Rumpus Room.
These old teen-related albums have some great cover art. I've had this Prom one for a while...
This album collecting is addictive - especially when albums usually sell for a buck.
