Other planets

A few years back, one of the Vienna branches of the Saturn consumer electronics shops received a huge shipment of audiophile 180 gram Sun Ra vinyl records. Despite their somewhat obscure appeal, they sold out within a few days.

I didn't get the exquisite coincidence at the time, and I was quite overwhelmed and confused by the massive amount of available recordings, so I didn't buy any, which is really a pity.

See, Sun Ra was this jazz musician who claimed he was an extraterrestrial from the planet Saturn. And it would be so cool if I could answer the question "Where did you get those Sun ra records?" with "From Saturn".

I agree that this would be a cool thing, Horst, but I think that only one of these records would be needed for this purpose...prominently displayed, of course!
