Go for it. Happy hunting and good luck.

Thanks for the recommendations. I've only read Fear and Loathing so far but I've read a lot about him. Interesting fellow indeed.

Cheers.

I bought some old Sega Megadrive/Genesis games a few years ago and found a porn dvd in the instruction manual.
I guess some kid was hiding it there and forgot about it.

The only thing I've found in used books.. even library books... is someone's dried up smeared snot πŸ˜•

It pisses me off when I see it in library books.. because if they spot it after returned they probably think it's you .

Anyhoo that's my unworthy contribution to this thread albeit an honest one.

Fear and Loathing calls to me to re-read it every five years. First few times just laughed and laughed. Now I see it as a generation shift and a missing out on a chance for real change.

I've read his letters to colleagues and friends. What a hoot! When you can write Charles Kuralt and start off, "what's up you drunk bastar#..." you know you've arrived!

Never found anything cool in a used book. I will purposefully leave book marks in a random book just to keep my anarchy edge.

I know who they are but I don't have any of their stuff (that I know of) they have been mercilessly sampled, probably in ways you wouldn't even recognise.

I see those and raise you Jeff Mills, Kevin Saunderson, Robert Hood, Richie Hawtin etc
Machine music digs into me but a lot of people just don't like it.

I'll think about it.

I hope you have a handkerchief, you know, just in case. Aaaaaaatchooo!

And remind me not to pinch any of your old books.
I'll make an exception if its a really good book....I've got a nice windscreen scraper somewhere.

Hey.. why blame me for someone else's mistakes. I didn't put the snot in the books.. and I've been kind enough to try and scrape it off with knife .. especially in library books due to the reason I mentioned before. People that do stuff like that do it on purpose. If it was an accident through sneezing any decent human would do their best to clean it off πŸ˜•

I can't be the only one who's found these gross gifts in used books or library books.
C'mon lets all be honest.πŸ˜‚

OK you can come out of your room now. And yes, I've seen them.
We only like finding cool things, though.

I second that! Let's talk records somewhere.

I hate to admit it but I once found an old snog rag in a book. I sprayed it with lysol a few times and it was good as new after that. But the book was good, hand gliding 101.

I've thought about it for some time but I really don't want it to be a "what's your favourite record" kind of thing.
Transfer from vinyl to CD could be an interesting topic.
The first Dark Side of the Moon CD I bought was AWFUL and i t nearly put me off CDs altogether but I got a remastered one and that did the trick.

The majority of CD stuff I buy now is techno stuff mixed by this or that DJ so it would bore people pretty quickly here.

Maybe, what about your most bizarre vinyl albums?
