5. a brand or trademark, especially of a manufacturer of phonograph records, tape cassettes, etc.: She records under a new label. Boy, even the online dictionary can't keep up. Cassettes!?!?? Gotta love them good ol' days of rewinding over and over and over and over cause you bought some crappy-hair-band-tape that only had one good song on it! I loved it even more when it was the 3rd song on side 2 and i could never get it to stop right where i wanted. So fast forward a bit. Oh, i missed it. Back up. Uh....almost... Aaaah, once more... There!!! Now.... LET THERE BE ROCK!!! :) ...maybe digital IS better... :-/ No way!?! maybe easier, but never better. Too old fashioned here to ever admit a win for anything digital. But alas, I digress... I like that phonograph records are coming back. Music has definitely lost something since all a kid has now is a little bitty touch screen instead of 144 square inches of album-cover-paper-board-bliss to fasten grubby hands and curious eyes onto... Remember how when you were holding an album cover the whole universe would just melt away? There weren't 15 apps needing updating and 7 text messages coming in and millions of fragmented 1's and 0's bouncing off satellites all clamoring for our attention. Those were the days... Music will always be divine. How we get it will forever evolve and change I suspect. But until our little wet planet expires, those magical vibrations that enter our souls via our auditory senses will continue to stir souls and inspire and soothe and massage away the randomly acute ills of being human beings. Here at EOC Records we are happy to know what we like, and so very grateful to be blessed to live where we can do what we feel. Ok, thats enough rambling. Back to work. Always stuff to do around here... Thanks for playing along. Have a good one. -EB ...and just in case anybody was wondering, I'm happy to provide OUR endorsed definition gratis... 11. to put in a certain class; classify. ...as in CLASSY MUSIC ;)


11. an account in writing or the like preserving the memory or knowledge of facts or events. Yes. It WAS the 11th definition on the dictionary.com listing... How appropriate!?! I can't make this stuff up... It's just meant to be... of course, that was just the one I PICKED according to the mood I am in right now at this very moment...which by the time YOU read this, it will not be NOW it will be 'later' for me, but it WILL be NOW for you... this could get confusing, ugh... I say I'm gonna stick to definition numero 11. I love it. I predict it will hold up. As for the first 3 albums we intend to release on our INDEPENDENT RECORD Label, they are filled with the artists' account and portrayal of life's events seen, felt and interpreted through that artists eyes, senses and heart... Preserving an account...in song... Yes. I love it for sure. -Elmer Bean
