Thoughts about ‘my husband’s stupid record collection’

NEW — 6:30 p.m. April 9, 2014

I recently read an article on Jezebel about female music writers and women in the music industry in general.

The article focused on a blog run by a woman named Sarah O’Holla, called “My Husband’s Stupid Record Collection.” The blog has brought up a great amount of discussion among the music and feminist communities in the past few weeks.

Why is it such a point of interest? Well, O’Holla’s blog is based on the idea of her exploring her husband’s expansive record collection and writing stream-of-consciousness reviews from the point of view of a person not immersed in the music industry.
