I'm a sap when it comes to romantic scenes in movies when the guy puts on music, dims the lights, and gets all sweet on the girl. I'll gladly admit that if a guy put on a vinyl record for me I would probably melt for him (assuming the music was in good taste of course). But what bothers me about this concept is that a vinyl record doesn't realistically work for romance. For those unfamiliar, or too young to know what vinyl is, a record only holds about four or five songs on each side (on average). That means you have roughly fifteen to twenty minutes to woo the girl before it's time to flip the record. Interrupted romance is not romantic. A CD on the other hand would give you anywhere from thirty to forty-five minutes, which is much more realistic.
Also, just watched Crazy, Stupid, Love and it was great. Ryan Gosling is delicious. If you see the movie then you'll know where this post came from. It'll all come full circle and make more sense. Until then, enjoy this lovely still shot of him borrowed from the interwebs.
