The Psycho-Geography of Record Fairs

"Do we collect records awake or dreaming?
Are we fueled by what the ancient Greeks called 'enthousiasmos': the ecstasy of the soul when it is communicating with a deity?
What does a record fair mean?
What happens at the record fair?
How do we feel while we are there?
How do we feel when we anticipate it?
Where does its powerful allure come from?
How have things changed as we nowadays fester in alienated consumption on eBay?"

A fantastic look into the psychology of record fairs.
