And to further waste your time reading about the "wild and weird world of
black disc obsessives" (my own un-copyrighted term for how the press needs
to find something sensational to describe the phenomenon so that the
"outside world" will read their coverage and we all can roll our eyes).

Most of you probably already know about the book and article, but I thought

overall concept and what I gather the gist of whatever text accompanies
them would be (I could be wrong since I have not seen the book itself, but
I don't find the blog encouraging).
