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.

And In My Spare Time

…from felt pen/highlighter roughs over photocopied pencils…IMG_1072…to inks…IMG_1643..to highlighters again…IMG_1644…and again…IMG_1645…and again….IMG_1647…to the addition of some colour coded lines….IMG_1796

…voila…. a poster.

…(if you’re in the ‘hood you should drop by…should be a damn fine gig!)…

…(ps. you should see the “hard” coloured series….coming soon to this blog and walls in the greater Dunedin area!).

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

….both concepts are being well received.

Inner Sanctum

….3 years in the planning…

…the shelf above the “DJ” area in the library at home….

…made from re-purposed modular pine shelving from the 70s….IMG_5622

That Job I Was Putting Off Till I Caught Up On Everything Else

…you know…. ironing those 45 sleeves I’ve been “collecting”?….

…for 5 years??….

IMG_4153

 

…that I was going to alphabetises???….

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).

Wow

…wow….

..in all my years of lovin’ ska in all it’s shapes and forms, I’ve never seen one of these Trojan records 7″ sleeves…

…the label as an extension of the warriors shield is sleeve art brilliance…

…ain’t it purrty….

….mmmm….purrrty.
