well, i wouldn't usually be in the business of making rather self-centred appeals, but in this instance i very much am! it would be of exceptional delight if any friends or family in the UK reading this could post me something or other.
why? well, so that they can post it using these excellent new stamps from Royal Mail!
there are some very cool rock album covers on there! i appreciate that the snow and really bad weather might make it impossible for anyone in Britain to do anything out and about at the moment, but if someone wants to write and send anything with one or more of these stamps on, please do so!!
whereas i would imagine most who know me would know to send either the Bowie one and/or The Stones one (yes, Susan and Trevor, that would be you!), a couple of the others look equally impressive. New Order's Power, Corruption & Lies album is a classic, as indeed is the artwork shown here. that's probably why it was selected for one of the stamps - wonder if it has its own Factory Records serial number?
the other ace one, and one i am glad to see here, is Primal Scream's Screamadelica album. whereas any one of these stamps would look smart in my post (miracles of the post office permitting), it has to be said that i would be in heaven with one of these!
well, there you go, that's my humble request. if you are a casual reader and want to post something with one of them on, leave a comment and i will reply with my address, should i be able to work out your contact details!
thanks in advance to any and all generous types who post something!!
be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
