Desert Island Discs: How many would you give up for chickens?
OK. A twist on the usual. You are going to be exiled to a desert island. You have to find your own food and kill it and everything, unless it was dead already or a plant or both. And you can bring a solar powered record player and up to 10 records. But you could trade one or more of your 10 allotted records for 3 chickens (per record). So if you bring 9 records you can bring 3 chickens. If you bring 10 records , you can't bring any chickens. How many records and how many chickens would you bring?
Me: 2 records and 24 chickens. I'd bring Pet Sounds and Thelonious Monk Plays John Coltrane and 24 chickens.
Or else, I'd bring In a Silent Way, Rubber Soul and Louis Jordan's Greatest Hits and 21 chickens.

With Pet Sounds and Monk I'd bring 4 fried chickens, 2 oven roasted, one Shake and Bake Polynesian and one satayed.
With In a Silent Way and Rubber Soul and Louis Jordan I would bring 4 fried and 3 preserved in salts and spices from the West Indies.

And how will you be storing 24 chickens?

Plus ça change...
They're LIVE chickens, no?
But are they nice plump chickens? I ask because several of my desert island discs are themselves edible. Not great, but nutritious. And I don't want to be trading them for any scrawny little shit chickens.

I'm the face.
In the good old days, you would occasionally be able to buy a box of cereal with a 45 record on the back. You could bring a bunch of boxes to the island and play the records while munching on the cereal.
I'd be tempted to bring at least one Todd Rundgren album because they're so long, maybe Initiation. Songs in the Key of Life probably, Dave Mason's Alone Together, CSNY's Deja Vu, Gentle Giant's Free Hand, and a few capon.

Victory at sea!
I 've killed and plucked a chicken with my bare hands while listening to Le Sacre Du Printemps. True story. Wasnt easy.

If a disc has chicken pickin' on it, does that get you some dispensation?
