    Records were referred to as records. Albums as records, or as the Spanish micturating conquistador, El Pee.
    Singles were singles. Cassettes were tapes Sometimes a single was a record, ex: you just played side 'A' of a newly purchased single, you get up to turn the record over.

    As far as my fuggled recall works, the term 'Vinyl' as a catch-all didn't enter the lexicon until the CD had grown to dominance. I remember it being used as a pre-hipster term, 'spinning the vinyl/put the vinyl on the deck' or somesuch nonsense, but it was largely confined to referring to the material, or a collection of the material when other media were present.

    Will the CD ever be referred to as 'buying the new release on polycarbonate'? One hopes not.

    No. Just no.

    Up until then, I had forgotten about 'that' video. Now you have reminded me, I feel the urge to curl into a foetal position in a darkened room, suck my thumb and cry for release from this plane.

    Records are called records but the term album dates back to the 78 era when 78's came in sets like a photo album. LP was the name Columbia used when it introduced the microgroove record during the great speed and size wars with RCA.

    Along with calling singles (the RCA format) stacks o Wax, I Vinyl was used as a term back in the day.

    All of that makes sense to me. I only take issue with calling it “a vinyl”. If I’m talking about an individual item I’ll continue to call it a record or an LP. I have a collection of vinyl.

    I think Barbie herself is made of vinyl too!

    They aren't boobs, they are Bowies Nipple Antennae.

    Bowie's eyes were the same color. He was in a fight when he was younger and damaged one eye so that it wouldn't dialate properly. You can see that in close up images.

    Ha. It even says that in the URL.
    But I'm sure the "controversy" isn't minded as free promotion.
    I don't buy dolls, so nothing to see here.

    He didn't. This doll is NOT DAVID BOWIE.

    It's Barbie dressed as Ziggy. Barbie has boobs. Barbie is a girl, and so, this doll is a girl. It's a girl dressed as Ziggy Stardust.

    Good grief. I want to laugh but I also want to shake someone like a baby*.





















    *Which of course you shouldn’t do. No babies were harmed in the production of this post.
