Blog Project Day 104: Who needs Rodeo Drive…
This is the print I got at Pyramid Atlantic for becoming a member!
…when you have the Wheaton Regional Public Library store? Today’s purchases (which totalled approximately $29):
Working Girl (VHS)
Earthly Paradise and The Vagabond by Colette
Cowboys are My Weakness by Pam Houston
Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi
Journal of a Solitude by May Sarton (intended as a gift for a friend)
The Dream of a Common Language by Adrienne Rich
LPs: Tapestry by Carole King; Cold on the Shoulder by Gordon Lightfoot; James Taylor’s Greatest Hits; Barry Manilow’s Greatest Hits; Memories by Barbra Streisand; Ladies of the Canyon by Joni Mitchell
45s (by A-sides, or at least the songs I recognize, which I’m calling the A-sides): Copacabana by Barry Manilow (which is curiously printed with the same tune on both sides); Don’t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue by Crystal Gayle; Ring My Bell by Anita Ward; Boogie Shoes by K.C. and the Sunshine Band (the other side is Shake your Booty so it’s a double-win!); The Best of Times by Styx; Got to Be Real by Sheryl Lynn
After a brief sojourn at the Pyramid Atlantic Art Center birthday party (where I sewed my own book, made a letterpress birthday card, block printed a handkerchief, and somehow managed to say no to the gorgeous looking red frosted cupcakes that were offered to me three times), I made a pit stop at Joe’s Record Paradise for: Rick Astley’s Whenever You Need Somebody, Rosanne Cash’s Seven Year Ache, K-Tels Disco Rocket (a 2-record set!), and the piece-de-resistance (insert teen scream here) Michael Jackson’s Off the Wall!
In other words, this whole day was a big cuppa swoon…
