    When I worked in a record shop we had a regular customer who used to get his online purchases sent the shop as he could only take them home when his wife was out

    And it was only 50 cents...
    No stop no no no!!!

    I HAVE to stop buying records just because I like the cover.

    Came across this lovely hand-drawn cover today. It's completely home made, including the sleeve itself and the centre hole on the back:

    According to discogs, this single never had a picture sleeve.

    Love that hand-drawn Polydor logo!

    I still probably buy too many records but I've managed to cure myself of giving in to every impulse, so I let this one go.

    Excellent. I needed a good laugh; I've spent most of the day clearing the garage out.

    Friday saw a "Save the children" book sale at the University of Western Australia. Vinyl generally features too, though on a far smaller scale.

    I reminded myself that for him it is a living, whereas for me it is a hobby.

    I ended up with a CD comp of John Surman's ECM recordings ($2).

    Entrance to the hall was at the bottom of the clock tower (see the picture). I took the photo as I was leaving. The queue went around the corner and into the distance.

    popped out for milk & a paper, came back with MORE STUFF



    An old Led Zep album, a 4 x CD set of ambient noises and an old T-Shirt which I was planning to use for decorating the back room
    but the missus says it's too nice! The CD thing is odd but if I put it on & go out the neighbours will think I'm very noisy or really popular!

    You're not wrong, that is a piss-poor mug collection.

    I don't particularly want to get into an argument with a 40-year old mug, but I recall that the CB slang for "young lady" was "seat cover".
    10-10, good buddies.
