Playing Pokemon Go with vinyl

I’ve never added anything to the Discogs Database before, it’s pretty easy to do really, as I found out when I added the Carl Matthews album I talked about recently. This is the Discogs entry here:

It looks a lot like the image above, more than a lot, exactly, because that’s it.

It irked me that I wasn’t able to add it to my Discogs collection, which I have recently come to realise is my own version of Pokemon Go, except it’s for vinyl records, sort of, when I do catch them I have to add them to my VinylDex (rather than Pokedex) and records stores are PokeStops, Record Fairs are PokeGyms where I do battle with the vendors.

There’s even an app for it, ‘The Vinyl District‘, as you move around different record shops pop up for you to nip into and catch a record.
