Last year I emailed Len Penzo about doing a “paper vs. plastic?” post for one of his “Letters, I Get Letters” articles. Len, as you know, is a plastics guy at heart, but he loved the idea so he sent me something awesome – his band’s CD, “In Retrospect”. You see, Len is more than an awesome blogger, his talents run much deeper. He was in a band, The Relics, which released an album on Blind Dog Records back in 1995. He also had an awesome haircut, which I have evidence of in the article!
The Mission: Introduce a friend who’s been living in a cave to rock and roll, three albums at a time. Even he (she?) couldn’t help but be exposed to The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, so you can give him other material. You have five care packages available, with spots for three albums each. No greatest hits albums. Also, write your friend a letter telling him what you found hard to leave out and what you had no problem removing.
