The Eternal Voyage...
Of A 12" Record...
"I've been collecting records since I was 14" I said to my better half... "14 she said, just think how much money you'd have if you didn't waste it on buying flat bits of black plastic"... It then occurred to me she had no idea about vinyl (not merely plastic) so i found myself duty bound to...
"Darling" i said, "let me explain why...
5 years later... she jumps up & shouts "I get it, It's like me with my Handbags & Shoes... Yes?"
"Yes" i say back, to which she replies... "so how far do some of these (plastic) records travel around the world between collectors?"
"Good question" I reply "Its hard because some are kept from between the time they were purchased new & never seen again, some move between collectors, others are always just sitting on sites to be sold"....
So I came up with the Idea to send one around the world to as many friends / acquaintances as possible to clock the distance covered & the cost of shipping it around...
