Ok so i've had an idea. I think this idea is in keeping with the values of the old Vinyl Vulture site and the new vg+ site, and will more than likely prove to be a bloody good laugh.
We pick a day when everyone who wishes to participate is available, let's say Saturday 14th July. Participants make their way to one local charity shop with a £10 budget. You buy records, good and bad, known and not known and you keep a photographic diary of the whole experience.
When your diary is ready and you have listened to the records purchased then you start a completely new thread in the General Natter Section entitled "[Insert silly vg+ name] and the £10 Charity Shop Challenge", your thread is not only a photographic diary of your day but also reviews of the records you have bought, and descriptions of the general merriment of your time in the challenge. Then all vg+ers contribute to the same thread with the usual mix of feedback.
There should be several aims to this exercise;
LIST][*]to reunite vg+ ers with the ethos of buying many records for under a tenner[*]to remind us all that charity shops are really peculiar places[*]and to find out once and for all which UK town has the best charity shops[/LIST]
You will need;
- £10 sterling (or equivalent european currency EG EROS (sic))
- a digital camera
- You must not exceed your £10 budget
- You must produce photographic evidence
- Purchases must be made in you chosen shop (and not on ebay)
- You must create a new thread with the title "[Insert silly vg+ name] and the £10 Charity Shop Challenge" to be considered a participant
as a side challenge we could count the amount of No Jacket Required and Montovani records.
there could be points for bizarre objet d'art and descriptions of the crazy conversations.
