    Rubbish things you desire

    Why is it that when you know something is bad, poorly made and has been pilloried in reviews and the media, you still want one? So what is the most rubbish thing you have or had desired?
    Me, I'll start with the Triumph TR7:

    I want a SNES with Mario Kart, Mario World and Street Fighter 2 Turbo. Not really rubbish though.
    Or a Volvo 240

    If we're on the subject of cars I'd love a Shelby: Shelby American Inc.

    And a new house.

    And a dog.

    Another big one of mine (and I'm expecting a little backlash for this but hear me out first!) is a good vinyl collection.

    I love music, and I love the sound of vinyl, it really can't be beaten... but the technology itself is rubbish... pops, crackles, warped discs, frayed needles... technically, CD should wipe the floor with vinyl, but somehow doesn't...

    That's not a nice way to describe a prospective partner...?!

    Very hard to put proper SOUL into a medium that is crystal clear, and perfect! Vinyl remains the best way to listen to music....even if the tech IS rubbish!!!
