    wow, it's like looking at records if my eyes were a thousand times more powerful, which makes me wonder why i would need to and if i needed to, why didn't nature provide me with more powerful eyes or why don't pressing factories just make records a thousand times bigger so that my eyes don't have to feel inadequate?

    The real close up one of a single groove is so sick. Looks like a valley or something. Can just picture the needle riding round them grooves:)

    Cool. I can't believe we get the sound quality that we do from those dirty, dusty Grand Canyon looking grooves.
