Edward Munch may have owned your phonograph...

"The phonograph† is not of any commercial value."
Thomas Alva Edison - Comment to his assistant, Samuel Insull.

"No one needs a Victrola XX, a Perfected Graphophone Type G, or whatever you call those noisy things."

Hello,

I don't know if I'm just weird (or more than most), but sometimes when I see a Circassian Victrola I can see a face, or a bat or who knows what in the book matched veneer. I saw this oak machine recently and the knobs just looked like nostrils and I swear I see the Grinch from Dr. Seuss in the wood graining. Am I nut's or do see the faces of owls or bats, or faces in some of the machines book matched veneer you see occasionally? Do you have a face looking at you in a collection?

Either a Bunny, or a woman in a very suggestive position?

Not a machine, but I have had a polar bear and a lemur of sorts in my kitchen cabinets for some time now.

I've posted this before but it seems appropriate to post again. It's my winking Jesus record cabinet.

DeeDee was organist at our church. Pastor Patty was stopping by to talk about music in the next service and our church was also in the middle of our annual commitment month. So I rushed to the basement with a pie plate and all the small bills and change that I could round up. I placed that in front of the winking Jesus cabinet. When Patty came I told her our financial needs were met and invited her to the basement. I told her collectors were making a pilgrimage to my basement and leaving donations in the pie tin in front of Winking Jesus. We all had a good laugh.

All this is hilarious! All very good, but the polar bear in the kitchen cupboard of 52089 has freeze-dried my spine!
