Headed Off To Cinema Wasteland

It’s been a very busy week so far preparing for Cinema Wasteland just outside Cleveland Ohio. Turntabling will get back into the swing of regular updates next week after the dust settles; we know it’s been a bit sparse round here lately with all the traveling and record selling, but our work resumes in earnest after the show.

We’ve got The Turntabling Collection for sale at Cinema Wasteland once again–our growing pile of rare, awesome, hard-to-find, and unusual vinyl is for sale and every title you buy directly supports this site, for which we thank you.

There are many people to thank for helping out at the Turntabling booth recently; first and foremost Jennifer Kilzer without whom so much of the Turntabling experience would be much less interesting and fun–her taste in music alone makes her irreplaceable on those long drives.

Jeff Runokivi has also been a mainstay–his help and company at Cinema Wastelands and Horrorhound has been invaluable, and it also great to have Mike Riley along for our first-ever Days of the Dead in Atlanta (not to mention our friends Eliesha and Geoff Huitt who were awesome hosts and tour guides).

And I can’t thank a group of people without mentioning Jon Kitley, head ghoul at Kitley’s Krypt, who got me started in this whole convention record selling stuff in the first place. He took me to my first horror con ever four years ago and I’ve been in big trouble ever since. The Kitley’s Krypt bunch is a family affair, so additional thanks to Nick and Dawn Kitley for being all-around awesome.

See you at Cinema Wasteland?

Turntabling Back From Horrorhound Weekend In Columbus

Turntabling survived the Columbus 2012 Horrorhound Weekend, and what an amazing time it was! The show was jam-packed with people, there were plenty of vinyl junkies dropping by and many of you showed your support of Turntabling by purchasing vinyl and CDs, which is greatly appreciated.

We probably don’t do a very good job of communicating that the purchases at Horrorhound, Cinema Wasteland, all the other shows we do directly support Turntabling.net and keep it alive and kicking. ALL vinyl and CD sales from the shows and online are basically funding the existence of Turntabling.

And for that we are very grateful. This site would literally NOT EXIST if it weren’t for the wonderful people who support us with their purchases. THANK YOU.

And with that in mind, Turntabling shows up again Friday March 30th for Cinema Wasteland, one of the most exciting conventions we do. We’ll be there for another incredible weekend of fun, vinyl, and cinema. It’s at the Holiday Inn on Royalton Road in Strongsville, Ohio, just minutes from downtown Cleveland. The show is located just off the¬†Ohio Turnpike (I-80/90) & I-71. Come join us!!!

Turntabling On Tour

Whenever it’s time to load up the vehicle with eight or nine hundred vinyl records, rare CDs and other stuff for sale in the Turntabling booth, I always hear the strains of ‘The Tubes World Tour”. And it’s that time again.

Three shows in March make this a quite busy season–things start with Days of the Dead in Atlanta March 9-11, then it’s Horrorhound Weekend in Columbus March 23-25, and finally at the end of the month Turntabling appears at Cinema Wasteland which always happens in Strongsville, Ohio.

The Atlanta show is truly the farthest Turntabling has ever gone to sell vinyl–13 hours of driving for the one-weekend event is pretty ambitious but you never know how these things will go. If it goes well, it could be a repeat visit for us in years to come.

If you’ve never seen the Turntabling booth at a horror convention or film festival, you’re in for a vinyl-collecting treat. Five or six crates packed full of rare, hard-to-find and just plain awesome records, plus a ton of rare CDs…our selection personally curated and is aimed at the discriminating vinyl junkie looking for things you might be hard pressed to discover elsewhere.

Turntabling sells and collects rare soundtrack sounds (Morricone, Bruno Nicolai, Goblin, Gert Wilden, Piero Umiliani, Harry Manfredini, John Carpenter, you name it) vintage 80s industrial/dark music (Cabaret Voltaire, Wire, Skinny Puppy, Sleep Chamber, Hilt, Legendary Pink Dots, Coil, Test Department, etc), post-punk (PiL, Gang of Four, Pop Group, Shriekback,) and sonic oddities which must be seen to be believed (Leonard Nimoy reading Ray Bradbury, Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi doing horror radio theater, Vincent Price readings, Doctor Who vinyl, etc.)

If you are planning to come to any of the next three events, and want to sell vinyl please get in touch with us at the show or via our comments section–we can’t purchase everything but always give at least some a look and a fair price when there are titles we need. If you wonder what we are in the habit of purchasing, just look at the site and you’ll get a very good idea indeed.

We hope to see you at the shows! In the meantime, here’s a video version of The Tubes World Tour, because it’s our road tripping theme song.

Turntabling Appearances Spring 2012

Spring of 2012 is going to be quite busy–if you’ve never come out to a horror or science fiction convention and visited the Turntabling booth, 2012 is a year full of opportunities for you to see The Turntabling Collection, say hello, and get your hands on rare and cool vinyl and CDs from around the world.

Our first show of the new year is Capricon 32, February 9-12. This science fiction convention is held at the Westin Chicago North Shore, Wheeling, IL. There are two items of note–the guest of honor for this year’s show is Cory Doctorow, who you might know from BoingBoing.

The other is that Turntabling is hosting a party suite during the show on Saturday night, February 11. Stop by the Turntabling booth for details–this is a blowout with free drinks and music by DJ Paisley Babylon.

Our next appearance is scheduled for Days of the Dead in Atlanta, March 9 – 11. The Turntabling Collection will be there with plenty of new arrivals, strange and rare vinyl, plus a LOT of horror soundtracks on CD. We’ve never traveled so far to do a convention, so this is an experiment for Turntabling. Come out and say hello, Atlanta area vinyl lovers!

Following Days of the Dead, Turntabling will be at back-t0-back horror festivals starting with Horrorhound Weekend, March 23-25 in Columbus Ohio. This promises to be a slam-bang con–this one features Pam Grier as one of the guest celebs– and Turntabling will have loads of great finds for you, as usual including some Jackie Brown soundtrack LPs suitable for signing.

While you’re in Columbus, might I also recommend a visit to the really awesome Columbus record stores like Spoonful Records and Lost Weekend? They are most excellent…

The very next weekend finds Turntabling at Cinema Wasteland March 30th, 31st and April 1st, 2012 in Strongsville, Ohio. There are sixteen new-to-Wasteland guests and this show is always a 100% blast. One of the best shows we do, hands down. The Turntabling Collection will be available for sale as usual and there is a lot of hard-to-find vinyl goodness waiting for you.

After that, the travel season winds down for us until August when things start getting crazy again–Flashback Weekend in Chicago, another round of Horrorhound Weekend and Cinema Wasteland appearances, plus we’re looking forward to doing another Flint Horror Con and possible another appearance at Dark Carnival Film Festival. Stay tuned….
