So let me introduce to you, my very favorite Pencil. This is the Sanford Prismacolor Col-Erase Carmine Red 20045 Pencil. A bit hard to come by in Europe however very readily available in America. A box runs about 10$ for and you get 12 pencils inside. No you may ask, and I would imagine 90... Continue Reading →
I found a set of the RenArt Sprayza Blow Markers on clearance locally for around 12€. I couldn't resist, the ghetto kids airbrush. Yes it was in the children's section of the local Müller.

So, leave it to a punk rock kid in the late 80s to ignore the record store owner's unique suggestions for the next album to purchase. Now, mind you I worked there. He was always giving me suggestions, and in retrospect he was always right. So there was Mission of Burma on the shelve, that i believe i may have even placed there earlier that week. This was 1988and unfortunately I didn't buy it.
