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?…

IMG_4345

 

…tickets on sale now… $40 ….

…only at Too Tone…only for CASH….

…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.

 

 

…(…last year…

…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)…

…and finally…a framed, needle point piccy from 1958, of a little dog I got from the dump as an Xmas pressies for myself….

…(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!!!!).

So A Long Lost Customer Walks Into My Shop

…he doesn’t come so often, now that him & his partner have bought a place, their first, on the other side of town…

…great to catch up, news, rumours, appraisals of the quality of the stock…

…he’s  a customer who I wish could afford a few luxuries on top of servicing his mortgage…

…how long is it since I last saw you?…

…just over a year…

…which is about the length of time it takes to fill a plastic aeroplane full of your daily pocket change…

IMG_2218

…which I’d forgotten he’d done last time…. till he pulled it out from under his coat.

 

…(over $100 bucks worth of new records once a year…take note folk who say they “can’t” afford vinyl…there are savings plans to suit all budgets!).
