Every good record shop will have some innovative moment, event, or premise at some point, it's the nature of the beast at a time when setting yourself apart seems to be more and more important for drawing in the crowds. The good people at Sonic Boom in Toronto have developed a niche we haven't seen of a record shop so far; they'll take walk-in orders for your very own, unique, picture disk.

All you need to bring is some music - any music? - and a picture and the people at Monotype Audio Disk Cutting, who are supplying the expertise, will put together a mono 7" pressing for just $15.

Sure picture disks are tacky, at best, but that's only because you're not in creative control, right?
