Record bonanza

One of my good friends remembered last week that she hadn’t gotten me a birthday present, and she really wanted to, so she sent me a link from coolstuff (a web site that has all the cool stuff you never knew you needed). “It’s a popcorn machine! Red! You want?” It was pretty expensive, and I do all my popcorn on the stove anyway like an old fashioned gal, so I felt guilty. “You know, I do love popcorn, and it’s beautiful, but I’ve wanted Beyoncé’s new album for a long time. Hint hint” Friend: “Hint taken. You’re not a big fan of Adele, are you?” Me: “We’ll, if you want alternatives Bowie’s really the way to go.” “You’re gonna have to give me more hints” “OK, well, I’ve wanted to get a good Bowie album for ages, and I just haven’t bought one, so any one of them really. The Ziggy-era was awesome, and I like the new one”.

Turns out she wanted to give me a proper present, so she bought three albums! And I quote: “It still ended up like 100 sek cheaper than the popcorn machine.”

She also knew I’d gotten a proper record player, so one of ’em was vinyl, I can’t tell you how stoked I was when she handed these over to me yesterday! Even after my night job, I just got home and put them on, one by one. And after that, I worked some on the album and even wrote a new song. Turns out, these kind of boosts can really get your creative juices flowing. I’m not unhappy. And yes, my friend got biiiiig hugs!

Here the beauties are on a rug from the 50’s hand woven by my maternal grandfather and grandmother (yup, they did it together, always were an awesome couple).

    You’ve heard the rumour that Bowie arrange for further album releases after his death?
    I love Hunky Dory.
