the I AM JUST HERE TO HELP section

WHEN THRIFTING keep your mind open!
The mother of all found sounds could be hiding inside of that soda splashed fisher price tape deck. the message to end all messages may be waiting to be liberated from inside of a telephone wire wrapped Answering Machine. In the phonograph section you may find an old sleevless record with a handwritten label! ah, its a Record-Your-Own-Record-Record! Back in the day recording your voice directly to vinyl was the happening at little shops in big cities.

WHEN LOLLYGAGGING keep your eyes to the ground!
photographs, cd-r's, and more await your gaze! even more is in the trash! Under stair wells, in gutters, caught by a fence, that wind whipped love note means everything, to everyone, if you'd just pick it up!

KIDS AT HOME open your ears!
Fine sounds could be at your fingertips, all you must do is record them! or could it be that one of your Parental Units already does? perhaps mom records all the phone calls, even hers... or is dad "protecting" himself with the microcassette rolling, being the "good dad" only record mode. Kids, Explore! be like Kenny- find suicidal microcassette in the attic.
