Sometimes, things are wrong. At one point they may have been alright, and are now considered wrong, or, they always have been and ever will be just plain wrong. Oft times, these wrong things are also funny.

With that in mind, this endeavour features two main strands: the "Shelf of Shame" (books) and the "Screen of Shame" (film) and smaller strands such as "Sound of Shame" (vinyl) and "Miscellany of Shame" (various) - each showcasing items from my personal collection of bibliographic and cinematic oddities and curios.

Deemed shame-worthy according to varying criteria of wrongness, these humourous, surprising, and occasionally instructive items are therefore posted here for your perusal, amusement and edification. Enjoy.

Sound of Shame #1

JESSE CRAWFORD: The Poet of the Organ
Design Records, n.d.

Found this old album while garage sailing yesterday, and couldn't resist. Naturally, the title prompts one to riff oxymoronic, in the style of "Soothing Bagpipe Music" or maybe "Non-Annoying Accordion Tunes".

Apart from that, however, the burning question (at least in our Freudianized times) is why anyone in their right mind would want to be immortalized as "The Poet of the Organ"...?

Unless of course it's a marketable skill, in which case the Craigslist personals eagerly await your posting.
