Sunday Morning Coming Down

…to work…to find….IMG_1420IMG_1421IMG_1422IMG_1425…I’m most certainly not “lovin’ it”.

How I Spent Record Store Day

…experimenting with alternative packaging…now that I can’t buy small quantities of plain bags to stamp my logo on….smallest printed batch you can get done on yucky plastic is a million billion…so it’s the old-school news print roll for me…neatly in half so as not to crease the corporate image…IMG_9561IMG_9562IMG_9563

…also trying out hiding behind the bins…(thank you for noticing Ian, nice shot)…12998723_1009751062443509_6359315822682090016_n

Yesterday Was Such A Crap Day

…woke up to a blank screen version of my Macbook….

…thankfully tech’Matt could come look at it almost immediately….

…very stressful…dead link to the outside world and only this clunky ol’ PC to get by on….

…I really can’t remember how half of this works and the buttons are  “so much” bigger than what I’m used to that it’s taking forever to correct the mostakes….(ha!…left that in on purpose)….

…if only THIS had rocked up outside yesterday….IMG_7298…I could have done THIS…IMG_7300…to make myself feel better!

The Southern Most Second Hand Record Shop

…a road trip to Invercargill would be incomplete without a visit to Rock ‘n’ Rolla records at 86 Spey Street….IMG_6623
