Saturday afternoon at work. Stocky mouth-breather in his thirties, modified dyed black pompadour and sideburns, long denim shorts and slightly too small skull and crossbones t-shirt. Looking through our used soundtrack LP section, where there’s maybe 150-200 albums.
Holding up a record with his back to everyone, loudly and to nobody in particular:
Where are the prices?
…on the back
now turning around
I don’t see it
I point out the large Jacks sticker with a price on it
Oh…it just looks like a sticker from your store.
yeah, with the price on it… the numbers tell you how much it costs.
yeah…yeah…are these even broken down into sections?
well yeah you’re in the soundtrack…
(interrupts) No No dude IN the sections are there SECTIONS ?
No man, there’s only one row of soundtracks, should take you about a minute to go through
(heavy sigh)…oooh man
Bought the Grease soundtrack.

Hey man…I NEED some black metal
Ok, who are you looking for?
I dunno…but it’s gotta be extreme bro…really EXTREME…you know the blackest metal…it don’t have to be European either.
Wellllll…we got a bunch of metal, some black, some not..you know it would really help if you knew what you’re looking for… you should checkout some stuff online…might give you an idea of what you’re looking for

Yeah..that doesn’t make a lot of sense. Look, go onto YouTube look for black metal, check out some some stuff, find out what you like and then go from there.

Sonorama: Japanese flexi-disc magazine 1959

This a magazine called Sonorama (Thanks Judy ) I found it in a stack of Japanese singles I bought a few years ago. It looks like a light current affairs magazine with 6 flexi discs, so you could play the magazine as well as read it.  I have not attempted to play the flexi’s yet. [click on image to enlarge]

In line at Foodtown, woman in front of me sees the kid bag up her stuff in plastic bags and doesn’t say anything until she goes to pick up her groceries. She dumped her stuff out and crumpled up the bags.
I don’t want plastic bags!..no!…no!…no plastic bags!….NO!
She scooped the groceries in her arms and stormed out
The kid staring, non blinking
Jeez, I guess she doesn’t like plastic bags
The kid, snaps back to life
Horseflies…the horseflies, they’re everywhere…in my beard…in my eyes…horseflies in my ears
He’s darting his index finger around to show the path of the horseflies. I see no flies, horse or otherwise.
