Chuck Season 3 Episode 14 at 41:20
Chuck and Sarah vinylgaze to their song, "Feeling Good" by Nina Simone
In Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, Dagny Taggart vinylgazes in her apartment:
"(Dagny) turned to a phonograph and put on a record of the music of Richard Halley... Dagny listened to the Fourth Concerto, her head thrown back, her eyes closed. She lay half-stretched across the corner of a couch, her body relaxed and still" -- section 141 (Part 1 Chapter 4)
verb. to do nothing but lay flat on your back and stare at the ceiling while listening to vinyls.
I can't wait to have a day off. I'm just going to vinylgaze the entire day.
