The stars are dancing like diamonds in the moonlight

When I was a young kidlet, I begged my mom to send me a Shaun Cassidy tape to play on my crappy old tape recorder while I was away at sleep away camp. And to my delight and surprise, she actually sent it.  Doo Ron Ron was the popular song, but I actually preferred Hey Deanie, and wow, look at what 45 turned up over 4 decades later, somewhere at a garage sale in Texas (courtesy of my sweet mom AGAIN). It brought back all the central  Texas summer sunshine memories of the late 1970s.  Also, this painted record glows under black light. Wooooo!

Oh hello, Jimmy Page. I see you hiding in there behind Mr. Cassidy.

My Mind in Sky

Cute, colorful, and abstract---here is Steve Winwood's single Arc of a Diver.
This 45 has gone to live in another state, with some other vinyl friends.

With a Girl Like You

Hurts So Good, by John Cougar Mellencamp.  This is a 45 record - a departure from my usual LP paintings.
Seeing this song takes me back to my young teen years, back when my Gen X friends and I were the young teen generation that MTV was invented for.  We started high school right as it launched, and we went from a family with 7 local television channels with an 18-hour broadcast day that shut off at midnight to an entertainment explosion 24-hour cable family with 200 channels of never-ending insanity.
What an exciting time.  It changed us all.  The Gen Ys and Millennials that followed us were born into a time of round-the-clock global availability of just about anything and computerized everything at the speed of light.  No need to ever learn about ....w a i t i n g.....  for things.
Because now it's all just right there.
(Do you remember the MTV astronaut?)

Say it correctly in Russian

Here, above, is the strange baby cousin to the other Russian language records.  It is 7-inches in diameter, just like a regular 45 rpm record.  But the inner label and spindle hole are the size of a 12-inch LP.  Weird and neat!  You don't see that everyday.
This was called "Say it Correctly in Russian."  Well, okay.
