Vinyl Beauties 4

Is it just me, or has it it been really quiet around here lately?

I’m half expecting to see a tumbleweed roll across my screen…

Anyway, like it or not, it’s that time again.

Time for more glorious artistic cheese in the form of Vinyl Beauties.

Let’s play.

I’m a little confused. She’s run out of tissues? There’s a touch of the Ponds Institute about this.

I don’t think I’ve ever come across a brand of toilet paper that I’d want to drag across my face, save for err…. running out of tissues when I have a cold. Is this a real advertisement?

(And yes, I do know who Lard is. Doesn’t change the fact this is a slightly odd album cover…)

It’s always nice to have a family Optometrist, don’t you think?

A hairdresser in the family is also a bonus.

I’m tuning into “Where Are They Now” from now on. If anyone can tell us what happened to these child stars, it’s Mel and Kochie.

By the way, can someone tell me what a “Hofer” is? Anyone?

There is a holiday for Percussion? Brilliant.

I’m always up for a day off work, count me in. I have a wicked tambourine.

I can play it, too. Topless.

Ooh. This one asks all the hard questions.

Does it mean that if you are a Christian, your lifeless body will end up in an ugly coffin with an excitable ruched trim? I have to say that this is not an appealing option to me. The curtains do not help.

Apparently it’s a “message”.

Is it just me, or does this read like a threat?

Far out! That’s where I’ve been going wrong.

You see, I like jazz. I like swing, and some big band, but most modern jazz leaves me cold. That was until I saw the range of headwear available for the “jet set” jazz listener.

The boots are pretty cool, too.

So, that would be all for this edition of Vinyl Beauties. Please feel free to leave your own interpretations…

I love you.

    Dragging soft tissues across my nose for the past two days has done a fair bit of damage that even a liberal smearing of vaseline has done little to soothe, so I’d hate to think what a skin care regime involving toilet paper would do to your complexion….

    I googled the Harmony Hofers. Although I can’t tell you what a Hofer is I can say that they were a late 60′s family punk-gospel group. The mind boggles as to what they sound like. They have punk written all over those cherubic faces.

    I think they meant “this is your funeral if you are a New Romantic.” In that case it’s not in the least bit threatening.

    I will get to the rest of your blogs I promise. Oh btw, as predicted the Rolf Harris song is a hit with the kids. I can’t get it out of my head now…

    Aw, you need some Kleenex with Aloe Vera. No chafing with the Aloe Vera…

    The Harmony Hofers are a punk-gospel group? I am fascinated. There is something very appealing about the idea of late 60′s punk-gospel.

    Oh, you could make a lifetime supply of puffy shirts with that coffin lining. Why didn’t I think of that before?

    Yay for Rolf! Hehe. Google the lyrics and then you can all sing along. Teehee.

    Yeah, late 60′s punk gospel really does sound intriguing. I’m going to try and track them down.

    I think I’m going to declare today the Holiday for Percussion. I’m sure Rolf Harris would like that too :-D

    Interesting covers. Actually Charmin is soft enough to “drag across one’s face” or so I think. Not a big fan of it though – stuff flakes like hell on your ass lol

    Vanessa plays the tambourine naked? Perhaps you and Matt McConnaughey should hook up and play together!

    PS It has been awfully quiet lately.

  6. Vanessa said,

    July 25, 2007 at 5:04 pm

    Well, I thought it was a nude percussion holiday all ’round….? Maybe I can start something here. Get a celebrity endorsement from McConnaughey and lobby the goverment. Who’s with me?

    Yah, where the hell did everybody go? Oh, I know…

  7. Vanessa said,

    July 25, 2007 at 5:05 pm

    Oh, Jules! With Rolf Harris AND Matthew McConnaughey on board, we can’t lose! :D

    It’s been awfully quiet everywhere lately. Maybe everyone is just skinny dipping at the beach.

    Here’s to that thought!

    haha, where do you find all these beauties, Vanessa?
    Here are my interpretations:
    number 1: maybe the lady has a problem with her eyes, and confused the toilet paper with a towel (white can be confusing when you’re short – sighted)
    number 2: Oh, without the costumes and the hats, the group Devo look a bit like them
    number 3: wow, this lady has really muscular arms! Maybe it’s because of holiday percussions…
    number 4: maybe real Christians have really shitty tastes? You never know…
    number 5: the jet set is reknown for sniffing cocaine and abusing of certain pills. This would explain that.

  10. Vanessa said,

    July 26, 2007 at 5:20 am

    Janie – Here’s to that thought indeed. Except I’ll keep it as a thought for now. I’m freezing my arse off here…

    modobs – Heh, I would give credit where it is due, but I’ve been collecting these album covers for ages now and I have no idea where most of them come from.

    I think you’re onto something with your interpretations.

    There is a bit of Devo about the Harmony Hofers. Maybe they were an inspiration….

    I didn’t notice that woman’s arms. She must be a real percussionist! She is now my inspiration to tone up my arms. Topless tambourining here I come!

    I think you’re totally right about number 5. That helmst is clearly the result of a drug psychosis.

  28. July 1, 2012 at 10:41 am

    I have got one suggestion for your site. It appears like there are a number of cascading stylesheet issues when launching a number of web pages in google chrome as well as opera. It is working fine in internet explorer. Probably you can double check this.

    I tried looking at your web site in my cellphone and the page layout does not seem to be correct. Might want to check it out on WAP as well as it seems most smartphone layouts are not working with your web site.

  31. July 4, 2012 at 2:23 am

    I have got 1 idea for your website. It appears like there are a couple of cascading stylesheet problems when opening a number of web pages within google chrome and firefox. It is working fine in internet explorer. Possibly you can double check this.

    I was curious about if you ever considered adjusting the layout of your website? It is well written; I enjoy what you have got to say. But maybe you can add a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of wording for only having one or two graphics. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Have you considered including a few social bookmarking buttons to these blogs. At the very least for facebook.

    I experimented with looking at your blog with my new iphone 4 and the structure does not seem to be right. Might wanna check it out on WAP as well as it seems most cellphone layouts are not really working with your site.

  52. July 14, 2012 at 12:25 pm

    Jesus Christ there is plenty of spammy feedback on this page. Have you ever believed about trying to eliminate them or putting in a tool?
