Today is National Vinyl Record Day

Today is National Vinyl Record Day

The vintage vinyl is almost as much of a classic as the bands themselves. Vinyl used to be the main means for commercial distribution of pop music from the 1950s through the early 1990s when the compact disk started to take over (which since has been replaced by digital downloads or streaming music). A vinyl record is also known as gramophone record, phonograph record or simply a record – an analog sound storage medium consisting of a flat disc which has an inscribed, modulated spiral groove. While vinyl left mainstream production in the early 1990s, it experienced a strong revival with collectors and audiophiles in the past decade.

Today in History: László Moholy-Nagy born in 1895

Today in History: László Moholy-Nagy born in 1895

122 years ago today, the Hungarian painter, photographer, and influential educator, László Moholy-Nagy, was born. In 1923, Walter Gropius invited Moholy-Nagy to teach at the Bauhaus in Weimar where he was soon placed in charge of the school’s preliminary course. In 1937, he moved to Chicago and was appointed Director of the New Bauhaus, Chicago, but the school went bankrupt after only one year. Against all odds, Moholy-Nagy re-opened the school as the School of Design in 1939 (renamed the Institute of Design in 1944). In late 1945, Moholy-Nagy became very ill and was diagnosed with leukemia. He died the following year. Today, Chicago’s Institute of Design continues to be the source of the most influential design curriculum in the United States.

Today in History: Disneyland opening in 1955

Today in History: Disneyland opening in 1955

62 years ago today, the “happiest place on earth” opened its doors to the public. On opening day, some 60,000 people visited the park. Admission on July 17, 1955 was $1. After several years of careful planning, construction of the huge amusement park began in 1954. The theme park was built on 160 acres of former farming land near Los Angeles, California and cost $17 million to build. As a result of Disneyland’s huge success, an even bigger theme park was built in Florida, opening in 1971. Other parks in Tokyo (1983), Paris (1992) and Hong Kong (2005) followed. In 2013, the original Disneyland greeted more than 16 million visitors who spend close to $3 billion! Interestingly enough, Tokyo’s Disneyland exceeded that number with 17.2 million visitors during 2013.
