Picture of the Day: Roof Shingled With Old Records

Still holding on to all of those old LPs? Nashville musician Matt Glassmeyer has found a new use for them. Glassmeyer took 350 damaged vinyl records and, with a single nail and washer through the center of each, used them to shingle the porch on the north side of his house. Because the records are not exposed to direct sunlight on that side of the house, they have yet to shown any signs of warping.
