I have this theory that people who make ugly stuff out of old records had terrible taste in music when they were teenagers. And still do.
Exhibit #1: A “Funky Chip Bowl” made by melting David Bowie’s 1978 narration of Prokofiev’s “Peter and the Wolf,” on green vinyl, with accompanying 50-page(?!) notebook made from the album cover and bound with one of those horrid cheap plastic spirals you get at the office supply store.

I dunno, I just think anyone who had an early appreciation for great music wouldn’t be so cavalier about messing up old records, no matter how scratched or “obsolete” they might be. So let’s imagine…
K.C. and the Sunshine Band, “K.C. and the Sunshine Band”
“The Way We Were” soundtrack (left behind by sister who’s off at college)
Peter Frampton, “Frampton Comes Alive!”
45s of “Cat’s in the Cradle,” “Da Doo Ron Ron” and “Lady”
Fast forward a few decades…
