Inovation Inovation Inovation

…there are no more lps to put in the recent arrivals bin….

…everything is now filed in the “General Alphabetical” or its respective “Genre” bins…img_6293…so I’ve invented this…img_6294…Ladies & Gentlemen I give you the “Recent Removals” bin…stock buried in the stacks…passed over (& over) for the last 18 months or so… destined to be thrown to the Trade Me wolves…but maybe worth one more flick thru…

…de-digit your sphincters….

…only 6 more Too Tone days until the end of reality as I know it.

Destination Destination Destination

…went to the secret location in the weekend….IMG_9273IMG_9275IMG_9277IMG_9268IMG_9267…the weather was Autumn…but I got a feed of field mushrooms…IMG_9280…which went well with the two and a half kgs of bacon I had to make disappear after the fridge/freezer malfunction earlier in the week…IMG_9254IMG_9262…replaced the stylus on the holiday home stereo and dug into my holiday crate…IMG_9263….mucked about in the sketch book….IMG_9266….did some shonky cider powered math….IMG_9247…and made a (second attempt) passable jig for round-frame things…IMG_9281…worked harder than when I’m actually working…IMG_9282….a marvellous break from the shop….IMG_9286…here are some directions to the secret location….IMG_9285

Finally After All These Years

…I get what was literally promised to me in an article I read about second record trading…IMG_6027

…hard cash monies in the record covers!!!!…

…the author said he’d found joints/lsd tabs/and money in lp covers ALL THE TIME…

…this is my first find in nigh on 15 years behind the counter….

IMG_6029

…and that is how much it turned into in local cash…

…even Liz was happy with that…

IMG_6032

…(still waiting for the joints & lsd to show up…looks like Liz may have got to them first…).

There’s No Pun Like A Name Pun

….I can’t decide wether it was Wayne’s parents who did this to him…

IMG_2517

 

…or wether it was Wayne’s manager who wasn’t thinking clearly when “helping” him choose a stage name….

IMG_2518

…or maybe, because of his busy hands, it was intentional …

IMG_2519

…Wayne King has international appeal….

IMG_2520

…and while he might occasionally go out with your sister…

IMG_2521

…he sometimes prefers a quiet night in…

IMG_2522

 

…(is it wrong of me to hope he did more than 5 albums?).

 

…(and for our American friends who may not have the particular term I’m alluding to in their lexicon…substitute Wayne with Jerry, shorten it to Jerr, and Russiannize his surname to Kingov… Jerr’ Kingov…that’s the guy).

Boring Boring Boring

…boring housekeeping stuff…IMG_1934 IMG_1935 IMG_1936

 

…film at 11.

 

…(and to re-enforse my faith in the justice system they even sent me out a “your application to be excused from jury duty” letter…after they’d made a fuss about my “acknowledgement of receiving your request that I attend” letter was put in the post in an untimely manner and I had to reassure them on the phone that I’d be there!)….

 

…(mmm, justice system).

What Your Record Collection Says About You

…possibly that you like critically acclaimed American female singer songwriters…IMG_1816

 

…that you may have been a bit cruel to someone in the past….(possibly your partner)….

 

IMG_1814

 

…but they were grateful that you were….

 

IMG_1815

 

…or not…

…as the case may be.

 

….(record collections are the window on your soul).

 

 

…(sometimes my job is just plain weird).

Records

…we got records…

 

IMG_1891

…Dunedin is raining records at the moment….

..hurry! whilst stocks last!

…er…before stocks topple and crush me to death.

 

…(this is third big collection in less than 2 months…I’m so busy I hardly have time to blog!….or stare out the window).

 

Never Mind The Perfect Storm

…here’s the perfect country Lp cover…IMG_1777

…wonder what “Dinger” is up to these days?….

IMG_1778

 

….the local Kiwi country expert says it’s only the second copy he’s seen…

 

….yeeeehaaaaa!
