Lockdown 17/18

….wup!….missed a day….

…my official line of excuse runs – was to attempting to work on stressful holiday project in limited space, in middle of night, whilst endeavouring not to wake up Dee/whole fucking neighbourhood with power tool buzz/loud swearing, then ran out of creative patience so watched shows online instead of blogging….

….we live in tense times…

….I recommend resorting to music….

…wether it be in the green room whilst you’re supposed to be helping with side chores to the stressful holiday project….

…or wether you get inspired by Grace Of Spades on mixcloud….(check her out she has excellent taste in fine soulful tunes)….and feel the need to treat Dee to a birthday set to accompany her morning exercises…live and direct no headphones selecting from the library….(after shifting 300 tonnes of stressful holiday project so you can access the decks)….

….ah…music…the proper pathway to abandoning a stressful holiday project….

…stressful holiday project?….

…what stressful holiday project?….

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.

The Hills Are Alive

….oh yes they are.

 

…love this movie (for some reason I cannot fathom)….img_4367

…it’s even got an intermission so you can stumble off and relieve yourself!

Good God Is That The Time

…quarter to Feastock already?…

…tickets on sale now… $40 ….

…no tickets held no phone sales no negotiations will be entered into…

….no amount of pleading will help…

 

….see you here before I see you there.

…hopefully more pic’s this year….bring yer smiley face).

…Too Tone records has been inundated with unprecedented quantities of supporters of the Afghani Cricket Squad….IMG_4057

 

….or is it the ZZ Top Album Recreation League’s biennial rendition of the “El Loco” lp cover?…

…any way…nice lads, even if one of them does have something attached to his thigh with masking tape.

Oh Crap Is That The Date

…it’s the 21st of December and I haven’t yet posted pictures of this years Xmas album display…IMG_3314 IMG_3315 IMG_3316 IMG_3317

 

…it was my good friend Dee’s only “chore” when she gave me the afternoon off…and she did a damn fine job….

…this years Xmas record sales have equaled last years (3) and with a half promise on another, we may, for the fourth year running, be about to experience continued growing returns from this emerging market…

…speaking of “damn”… the figures for my nativity scene haven’t been as popular as I thought they would be…maybe I should stop referring to them as Xmas desecrations rather than Xmas decorations….

…(no photo of them as a group, sorry, but unlike the very well behaved cows and sheep, the my ass wouldn’t stay still for the shot)….

..(badum tisss)…

…(yes, I have since taken the time to clean the seagull poo off of it)….

…jingle bells.

 

Another Celebrity In Store Visit

…this time it’s Lemmy…IMG_2650

 

…so named because of some large moles he has (not shown)…

 

…(is it just me, or do a disproportionate amount of people have pets named after celebrities?….

…I mean in the last 6 months we’ve had Keith Richards, Jarvis Cocker(leg) &, of course, regular visitor Floyd (Pink Floyd) and now Lemmy…just how many of these rock-pets are there??…

 

 

…oh fuck, what have I said!!!…rhetorical….that question was rhetorical!!!!).
