Did you know that Matthew Sweet got really fat? And Susanna Hoffs somehow got sexier as she got older? And that they recorded music together?

I saw Hoffs at Lilith Fair in 1997. I might have been the only man with a ticket. She was on a sidestage. She played "Manic Monday", and in the middle of it she segued into "Mrs. Robinson". I might have to download those records she made with Sweet.

****

Has anyone bought a record player lately? I was thinking I would introduce my six-year-old to records, lest she grow up thinking music only comes over the internet.
