Some RIPs

Well, the Summer Sale is over and was a great success.  Thanks to all who braved the rain and helped us out by carting off our wretched excess.  We’ve neglected the blog for a while, so here’s some recent things that caught… read more >>

Freddy’s Ready – Summer Sale Dates Announced

Join your pals @ ARC for our annual Summer Record + CD Sale. Yes its true, mainstream rags are ga-ga for vinyl, those johnny-come-latelies trying to explain what we all know – you can’t love a CD!  So Fred put on his… read more >>

Dan Donates!

A good friend of ARC, Dan Zanes, has done the impossible; donated ALL, not some, no ALL of his LPs to the library. Sure he threw in a nice pile of CDs (841), but ALL’s a lot, or at least 1,954 discs,… read more >>

Crazy like a fox.

God knows we love Britney Spears, y’all. But she’s troubled. Oh, so troubled. “Celebrity train wreck” troubled. The divorce from K-Fed, rumors of a sex tape, botched rehab, crotch shots, hair weaves that don’t fool anyone, greasy couture chicken fingers and a… read more >>

Relax with ReveenRelax with Reveen

Don’t MIND me…

Accept it; he is the Master of Self-Suggestion. Nay, the Impossibilist. But, relax? This Reveen is in the Valley of Creepsville. The Latinate vocal pace is, we hope, slightly, electronically altered slowspeech that one could imagine the devil or an alien brain-only… read more >>
