        • Anybody ever get offered a job and find records in the same place? When I was leaving after my job interview last week I noticed about 10 crates with records sitting in a corner in the company's courtyard. I asked the caretaker about the records and he said sure they're for sale, just look through them and pay me 10 DKR each for the ones you want. Then after spending 40 mins. looking through the lot and picking out a few the caretaker had disappeared so instead I asked a woman at the reception who told me in rather strong language no those were definitely not for sale and I couldn't touch them. Then I told her but the caretaker had said so so then she said she'd ask another woman who owned them to call me next week when she returned from her holiday. Then today the woman called me and let me buy the records. Thanks.

            Nice! A job with apes and cheap records in one instance - must've been your lucky day.

            If you don't like the Earth Opera I'm interested.

              Cool. I'll bring it to Crillo today if you're coming? Feeling better?

              • So, here I am, out in the back end of beyond, in Jasper, Alberta, with no record shops spotted for the last two weeks -when I noticed that the local 'dollar and up' store had a basement with a guy selling retro & vintage items. Plenty of old clothes and baseball cards, but only one box of records. Weirdly, the box contained uk staples such as Englebert Humperdinck and Roger Whittaker LPs, but I spotted this sealed item amongst the forty or so records

                Turns out to be a lost Canadian pop gem. Hope it keeps in one piece during the journey home, or that's three dollars up the chute...
