When I die I’m going to leave my body to science fiction

My girlfriend gave me a couple Philip K. Dick pulp sci-fi paperbacks for Christmas this last year. This blow in card was in one of them.

I picked up a bunch more pulp sci-fi paperbacks at a thrift store recently and this blow-in card was in one of them.

I remember how stoked I was in the 80's pouring over the Science Fiction Book Club pamphlets. Of course the books weren't this cheap but they weren't that much more.

Anyway, I thought they were a neat little blast from the past.

Wine hath drowned more men than the sea

Let me continue the cassette find fun. This one is from an estate sale where I managed to grab a decorative cassette holder with 72 cassettes for $2.00. The cache was predominantly vintage Maxwell, TDK and BASF tapes with Judy Garland, Barbara Streisand and Neil Diamond recorded onto them. There was a few Broadway Musical, Mario Lanza and several more Niel, Barbara and Judy tapes as well.

My favorite tape in the lot however was this gem.
Thirty minutes of lapping waves, bells ringing and bird singing up above. And get this, side two repeats so you can feel like your floating in a bay somewhere on a continuous loop.
I love the inside of the cover. "How to use the music of the future". plus the cartoon of the "Future Music" maker recording the descending snowflake. Blows my mind.
