Part 1) you put it over an upside-down pyrex bowl and stick it in a medium-hot oven. The plastic softens and wilts, then droops, then you take it out of the oven and let it harden again, still over the pyrex bowl.Originally posted by operatenor:
Barfle and Selma, how do you make a chip bowl out of a record? It wouldn't involve a blow dryer, would it? And wouldn't it be messy with salt leaking out of the spindle hole?
Oh I wish I could agree... alas, I cannot, Barfle. I could not stand any disco and the BeeGees, yuk, particularly this album.There was some good disco and a lot of really bad disco, IMNSHO....."Saturday Night Fever" is a lot of fun to play in my basement bijou.
That would be considered a mom and pop store.Originally posted by barfle:
...There's a hardware store not all that far from me that sells those plugs - it's amazing! Stravinsky has been there, and she agrees. If anyone in SoCal remembers Lyn-Brook hardware in Anaheim or Clark Dye in Santa Ana, it's on a par with them (and both of them are history, I'm sad to report).
My chip bowl started as an accident. A perfectly good album, sitting out in the sunshine.Originally posted by Selma in San Diego:
Also, anybody who instantly recognized barfle's juxtaposition of "record" and "chip bowl", and remembers how to do the trick (for my sins, I do) is probably a right-thinking clear-headed reasonable person and will agree with my notions of what sounds "classic".
