Previous Entry Share Next Entry

As you can probably tell from the "current music" field on the previous post, the Fuzzy Warbles discs I preordered have shown up! Volumes 7 and 8, completing the series. Also in the package was a nice big box made to look like a nice big '60s-era stamp collection book, titled "The Official Andy Partridge Fuzzy Warbles Collector's Album". I can put all eight discs in it, instantly turning them into a boxed set! There's also a special bonus disc of 9 extra tracks titled "Hinges" (aha, I guess as in little paper?plastic? hinges for affixing stamps to), and a book made to look vaguely like a tape recorder instruction booklet, titled "Hit Record and Play, or A Brief History of Home Sound Capture", which is actually a brief history of how Andy Partridge got interested in recording and became the genius musician we all know and love today. (We do, don't we? I sure do.) Oh yes, and a sheet of decorative stamps showing miniature versions of the individual album covers (which themselves look like giant stamps to begin with).

I'm guessing Andy Partridge likes stamp collecting.

Hi KT,

Hi, this is Rob. I'm a big Andy Partridge fan. Or I'm probably a medium Andy Partridge fan, but it doesn't sound cool to say that.
I love your site and your illustrated trip diaries! What a cool idea!

Have a good Day, Rob

Hmmm, you seem to know a little more about stamp collecting than I give you credit for! (Myself, I'm a very occassional philatelist, I don't even consider it one of my official "hobbies", as I know very little about "serious" stamp collecting, I just get the stamps I like (although, my collections' gotten pretty big over the years, with over 4500 stamps from most of the countries of the world, and several ex-countries)

I've always wondered about your "current music" lines on your post, sometimes, the music is way too much of a match for the content of the post, making me think it may be a joke.

Is it just me, or does "philately" sound like a sin?
