Record Store Day, Singapore (19 April 2014)

We visited 3 record shops today as they are all celebrating RSD and have pretty good discounts. Red Point at Paya Lebar is definitely our favourite. It has an unassuming and homely atmosphere, with a really approachable uncle (I’m guessing Mr Ong) to guide us around. Records are really decently priced at Red Point. My favourite buys today include Come from the Shadows by Joan Baez (only $17), and of course, George Feyer’s (I still like to play French songs the best) But OH! Those Italian Melodies… (only $3!!) mainly because the album cover looks so goofy.

What a wonderful world, 1997 (Joost Swarte)

Read Swarte’s comics in Is That All There Is?

Surrealism comes from the reality of Latin America.
Without space, no multiplicity; without multiplicity, no space. If space is indeed the product of interrelations, then it must be predicated upon the existence of plurality. Multiplicity and space as co-constitutive.

— Doreen Massey (2005)
