Might As Well Be Me
As Australian vinyl record dealer Shane Stark approached fifty, he didn't think much of his humble and uneventful life thus far. Harbouring a mild level of grief for the rock star, father, partner and career man he could have been, he found it hard to think of the life he had lived to date as anything other than ‘ordinary'.
But then one day he sat and pondered on all the records he had enjoyed (indeed obsessed over) over the last fifty years. He began to recall moments from his unconventional life attached to those records; some quite bizarre, many outright hilarious! As Shane dwelled on each record, and his ageing synapses started wiring and firing, those moments turned into pocket sized stories; each representing a stage or event in a life that, even he now has to admit, has been anything other than ‘ordinary'. Enjoy!
