  • Vinyl Chic (Non Le Freak Related)

    I liked that light. I would buy one if I could get it here without it smashing in transit. It looks delicate.
    There was a woman who did the local markets, selling coasters and notepads etc. made from old records. She sold a lot of bags like the ones in the photo.
    I don;t know if I would eat biscuits off that platter. Who knows where it;s been. Maybe from some unhygenic, loner, record collector guy, living in filth and squalor and handling the discs after watching porn videos etc.. I've been to such places a lot and wanted to get the hell out of there.
    Did you know that making bowls out of records is dangerous? I worked in the plastics/polymer industry for years in R&D and I can tell you that if you heat up vinyl enough that it bends, then it is also enough heat to produce polymer extraction, meaning that some molecules of the plastic get airborn at that time and you will breath them in if you have it in your hand next to a heat source. Those particles are carcinogenic.

      I'm probably alone in this but I dislike these things, vinyl thats been arts+crafted into something like a popcorn bowl.
      Actually what I really dislike is the assumption that I'd be interested in them.
      When are these carcinogenic molecule inhaling arts+crafers going to do something useful, like offering over-rated holy-cow novels as novelty toilet paper?
      Dead simple, just perforate along the spine, then you can rip out each page as needed.
      The thicker the novel, the longer it lasts!!

        I'm sure you're not alone, I think these are mostly ghastly, like luncheon meat sculpted into the shape of a teddy bear ghastly. My local cancer research has started offering melted vinyl fruit bowls made from the LPs they can't shift.

        The thing that triggered this off was being sent a picture of coffeee tables in the shape of giant 45 hole adapters. Which I see is getting filtered out somehow. It was all a bit FFS.

            I think all records being pressed from now on will carry a waiver on the front about how the pressing plant will not be held responsible for anyone contracting cancer in future if it comes in contact with a heat source exceeding 140° C.

              There;s all these people on ebay selling bowls they made for a few bucks and they're probably going to get PVC related cancer from it. Not worth it, IMO. It;s like sweat-shops, in some way.

                Wondering if anybody here has seen any of these art and craft items with labels that tell them the record is/was rare? I'm sure there is a SME - Karyobin fruit bowl out there in UK somewhere, with a pretty pink label as a selling point.

                  I saw one at the Bondi Beach markets once. It was a coaster made from a label off the Traffic - s/t lp. Pressed in Australia but was full pink Island. Not happy to see it. Didn;t tell the woman about it. Didn;t want to upset her.
                  The nicer the label, the more chance it will end up as a non-record by someone who doesn't know. Best looking label, IMO, is RCA Neon. Hope I never hear of one being made into a bowl. Funny how the material being used can be worth more than the object it becomes. If you saw a rare record worth lots of money, as a bowl, would you tell the seller?
