Wow, another TRS first …we’ll at least first since my very first post.

I’M being featured on Tokyo Record Style! Yours truly – Brian Scott Peterson, AKA, “BP”, “Peter Brianson”, “Pete Mesquite”, “Moosehead”, “Zebrio”, “Wendell (my bowling name), “Big Boss” to some, and “Safety Samurai” or “Bura-chan” to even fewer. Um… How coud I not, when the very friendly Oscar from Sweden (featured a dozen or so posts back), who appeared at my last “Tokyo Record Style Day” event at Coco Isle Music Market, despite not even being a record collector himself, whose heartwarming first words to me where “I love your writing” offered to make MY photo on the streets of Shibuya, then who “in a Brian-esque fashion”,  wrote his own “little ode to the groofball pictured” which I am about to share. THANK YOU OSCAR! I’m chuffed beyond words! Truly!

In Oscar’s words:

“A rare Waxonious Monk of the funky variety, Brian prowls the streets on the hunt for good tunes and UCVs (unsuspecting carriers of vinyl). There’s not a single skipping groove in the soul of this musical omnivore, and when he dives into the deeper end of his musical musings you’ll find there’s no need to flip his vinyl – the passion for music and his freewheeling sharing of deep cut theorems continues with unrelenting glory until, perhaps, you manage to surprise him with something new. At which point you will be vacuumed for every last speck of sparkling musical dust you have to offer. In Brian’s world, there’s always more music to be heard, another groovy fact to be learned.”

Wow, Oscar. Smiling huge and a little teary-eyed. Thanks again. I’m really humbled. So glad we met and looking forward to the day our paths cross again. Until then, be well and enjoy lots of music and keep on sparkling!
