Do you video/photograph live concerts on your phone/compact camera?
Yes?
Do us all a favour and stop going to shows.
You are amongst the worst kind of people.

One or two photos here and there is fine, even I do that from time to time (if my phone wasn’t the biggest bag of wank), but get that flashing light out of the eye-line/view of the room full of people standing directly behind you ASAP.

August Record A Day: Week Two


I’m undecided if I’m running out of steam with this challenge or not… I definitely won’t be writing another month’s that’s for sure.


Check out my profile (chatping) for the rest/nice things I take shitty pictures of.

MUSIC CHALLENGE: Album you own on multiple formats

Some of you have seen/participated in the ‘record a day’ challenges on instagram, and today’s challenge is: Album you own on multiple formats.

Call me a nark or whatever, but this challenge really does interest me to the core. It’s like getting a real peek into someone’s collecting habit/taste in music.

SO, any one release (or multiple, you may be obsessed with a few things) you own on cassette tape, vinyl, cd (preferably not a burn/copy), live dvd, vhs, (paid for) digital download, mini disc, betamax, Jefferson phonograph- whatever it may be! Doesn’t matter if you bought it second hand, given it as a birthday present or even bought with an iTunes giftcard. Some of you may have A LOT, so list off a top 5 or top 10 if it makes things easier :)

There is only ONE RULE: It has to have been paid for (digital from cd/free download cards only counts if you have 2+ formats already)

Reply, reblog, message, fanmail- just feed my inner nerdy-nosey-parker!

Here’s an example:

What’s yours?

August Record A Day: Week One

Things you should look out for this month: multiple repeats and new challenges I have to admit I’m rather chuffed with. I’m going to attempt to write up a list for September, but I’ll effectively be writing it around whatever I have left to post, so it’ll be bizarre, potentially eclectic and probably repetitive.

The Legacy | ‘We Gave It Everything…’ | 1st press | Green w/ black splatter | /50 | Dead And Gone Records | 2004

Took a punt on this because I loved their LP years back, and I can’t resist a 10” (especially for £4)

July Record A Day: The tail end

I am incredibly slow on posting these up… although I’m not quite sure why I bother… other than the fact it’s record related and that’s about the only thing I can pry enjoyment from these days. Eh. On the plus side- #augustrecordaday seems to be doing incredibly well (despite the depleted interest) and I’ve actually had a request to do a #septemberrecordaday. Those in favour say ‘aye’, raise your hand, or just contact on me through the usual channels if you think this would be a good idea and not just flogging a dead horse….
