Why Vinyl Is the Only Worthwhile Way to Own Music

Why Vinyl Is the Only Worthwhile Way to Own Music

On any given Tuesday in the 90s, I would hustle to the record store after school to gawk at the new releases. Occasionally, I would take a CD home, greedily tear it open, pop it into my boombox, and listen while I pretended to do my homework. This wonderful experience has no value any more. It's obsolete.

Men climb real life version of Game of Thrones' northern Wall

It's not the 700-foot-tall Wall of Game of Thrones, but this looks like the scene of the wildlings climbing the Wall in George R.R. Martin's series. It's 40-year-old Tim Emmett and 38-year-old Dawn Glanc climbing the 250-metre thick Sólheimajökull glacier, in Iceland, at sub-zero temperatures. Because risking your life while freezing your gonads is always good fun.

Some light passes through, some light gets reflected.
