...making records

What is it like to make a record? What is it like to break one? I believe that humans are wired for competition, even couch potatoes. They like to win on Atari, right? On this day in 1973 Elvis Presley's concert 'Aloha from Hawaii' was broadcast live via satellite, and set a record as the most watched broadcast by an individual entertainer in television history. Not sure how OJ's car ride ranked.
Also on this day, but in 1989 The NAACP 21st Image Awards were aired. Michael Jackson won Best Male Artist and Best Album Of The Year (for "Bad"). On this day in 1514 Pope Leo X issued a papal bull against slavery.I won't get into Papal briefs on here. We have an entire Universe to help us. Isn't that almost surreal? Get out there, or stay in and make a record of your own. If you feel the need to break one, find a vinyl copy of 'Milli Vanilli' and break that one.
