  • Gawd bless rob's records!

    Yep, nipped in on my way to meet the good lady at Tesco and come out with 6 Bollywood LPs at £2 each (Sapan Jagmohan's 'Pehredaar' & 'Habari'; Kalyanji Anandji's 'Anjane Mein'; Bappi Lahiri's 'Jean-e-Bahaar', one with names all in script from a Bengali movie called 'Bonobasar'; and Rajesh Roshan's 'Janta Hawaldar&#39, a copy of Richie Havens' 'Richard P Havens, 1983' double on Verve, and a 'Hell Up In Harlem' signed by Edwin Starr himself on both inner and outer sleeves.

    Not much vinyl action at the markets - two Georgie Fame 45s ('Because I Love You/Bidin' My Time' and the 'Bonnie & Clyde' one with 'Beware Of The Dog' on the flip). Did pick up this  rather nifty bit of kit instead: an old Dental x-ray viewer perfect for transparencies, three quid only. I was so chuffed I used a break in the rain to dig out a pond on the allotment...

              I'm not quite sure why, but I'm definitely impressed by that X-ray viewer, Wayne. Now you need some of Mr. Hopkinson's X-Ray records...

                No burying of the viewer (or growing of water chestnuts - making room for frogs is the plan). I'm just miffed the x-rays weren't still there to examine but that's just me...

                Perfect for viewing slides, though. That abstract thing is one out of several boxfuls I picked up all by a local amateur photographer a month or two ago. No idea what it is, but looks cool in a sort of 60s TV ident way.

                A bonus of the viewer is that, lacking a scanner, you can digitally photograph the images from the screen, and they come out pretty well - not too bad, anyway. Like this:

                            You just don't get that stylishness on Ryanair or modern BA, do you?

                              What are you not turned on by ugly trolls in cheap nylon?

                              If you head out to asia there are lots of great (i.e. stoopid) airline hostess uniforms to be found. I discovered this sitting in a Heathrow terminal that I'd never been to before waiting for my first flight to India. I loved the ones with huge headresses incorporating veils, very practical.
