What's All This Then

Why should I care what this guy has to say?

The correct answer is that you shouldn’t. We’re all entitled to our opinions. Develop your own. I try to be sane and rational, but that may change with the level of caffeine intake. I’m just telling my stories in the hopes they may amuse and/or inform others. And... I Confess... I'm showing off my bitchen collection a bit.

The Greater Orange County Record Show

The Greater Orange County Record show has been going on for years in Buena Park, California.   Buena Park is in the heart of North Orange County (not as red as the rest of it to the south).

I used to live in Whittier - which is a two towns over from Buena Park.   I have since moved to The San Fernando Valley - a good hour and half from Buena Park.

I hadn't been down to The Greater Orange County Record Swap in years.  The last time I was there was the day it got busted in the 80's.    That would be when Columbia Records sent their goons down to bust the bootleggers.  This was during the 'protection gap' and bootlegs were eating into record company profits.  They claimed it violated the integrity of the artists.  In reality, they needed to recoup all the money the industry put up Fleetwood Mac's collective noses.

So down to the swap I went today on a whim....

Glad I did.     Free parking.   Freeway close.  Spent a good long time there.

Note the guy in the reddish shirt in front.  He had his collection in a notebook for protection against buying things twice.  I do the same, except mine is on a database that syncs with my phone.

Here's my haul for the day.
