Just a quick one. Making a comment on Boppins blog the other day, after he bullied me into buying my first CD of the year, I counted up the number of records I’d bought in 2015 so far. Oh dear.
Oh dear. Okay so a bit of messing about on my Collectorz database* shows that 14 of those are 7″ singles – mostly thanks to the brilliant God Unknown Records, singles club, but even so, 90 LPs is a heck of a lot. I’m half very proud, half a bit scared of how obsessive I really am and the third half worried about running out of space; do we really need that cooker? it takes up loads of potentially valuable shelf space and as for that washer? I could fit the K – L section in there, if we got the right shelves.
Just think if I didn’t have the vinyl itch I’d be able to spend all my time swanking around in designer pastel suits (worn with loafers, no socks) and driving some wedge-shaped totally impractical car. Oh dear. And I’ve got Opeth Damnation, arriving next week …
Ah well, I’ll slow down next year. Honest.
*ever the wild one, me.
