Today I played around with my camera a bit, showcasing my “Macho Man CD Holder” that I imported from the States years ago. It can only hold jewelcases and, if they conform to that size, digipaks, but I love the look of it. So, there […]
While waiting for THE box set of the year (http://www.superdeluxeedition.com/news/tangerine-dream-in-search-of-hades-the-virgin-recordings-1973-1979/), I’m going to give much of the same material a spin now.
