Record skull

Ryan Kinney from Ashtabula, OH made this skull with old records formed over a mask.

Records are considered one form of "dead media", but to me and many other vinyl enthusiasts  they are still alive and well in our massive collections. There is something about the crackles and pops of a record that you can't get with a CD, or MP3. I love the tactile quality of being able to hold the music in my hand, vs only digitally view. That being said, I do enjoy seeing bad or damaged records recycled into artwork, like this skull.
