Desert Island Disk Delivery Service

Because if you do find yourself stranded on a desert island, face it, you won't have them with you
  [vote for,

For decades now, you've had your list of records you'd want with you if you were stranded on a desert island, even if only in your head. It's probably The Wall, Pet Sounds, The White Album, Houses of the Holy, etc. etc.

But <Murphy's law> the day you get stranded on that island is the day you don't have them with you, let alone a player. </Murphy's law>

Not a problem. For a one-time flat fee, you give us your list, and we give you the wallet-sized DIDDS GPS Homing Card. Keep that with you at all times! A convenient lanyard is available free of charge for this purpose.

After the shipwreck and the long ordeal in the open sea, simply claw your way onto that little one-palm-tree patch of sand and get your card out. Then you just break the seal on the card and activate the signal. We'll find you, fly to your island and hand you your disks. For an extra fee up front, we'll even include a solar-powered CD player and headphones.

Happy listening!

       I have never heard records, always books, but the message is the same. (+)

       <John Sayles' "Limbo" ending ***spoiler alert***> Oh!Here comes the DIDDS plane! Dammit, I forget. Did I update my list since I got that new Bob Dylan CD? I can't remember! Did I? The end. </John Sayles' "Limbo" ending>

       why, this is genius! think of all the useful applications! "which man would you like to be stranded on a desert island with?" "which book?" "which movie?" etc +

       K_sra, you just know what would happen - certain celebrity hunks and babes would spend all their time being whisked from island to island by helicopter, miss their hair stylist and gym appointments and, frankly, become somewhat disappointing to look at.   

       Also, if someone requests my presence on their desert island, does that mean that *I* am then stranded and get my wish, provided that I am a subscriber, and so on? Wouldn't it get too crowded for the helicopter to land?

       <deliberately misunderstanding> oh, [global], stop it! *blush* </dm>   

       [jutta], i think it might be just what they are used to, those celebs. always running hither, thither and yon for presentations, openings, closings, galas, and of course, paparazzi photo ops on the beaches of aruba. i mean, they're practically used to the exercise by now.   

       if your presence *was* requested on a desert island and someone came by your house in a helicopter to escort you thither, wouldn't you at least be curious to see who had requested you AND got themselves stuck on a desert island? i know i would.
