On the third Monday in May, a group of archivist colleagues will be discussing the fate of the world’s oldest and most precious record.
A month before that, the world was in the grip of another world record.
This time, the stakes are much higher.
A pair of vinyl records held up in a room on a corner of a hotel in Australia’s Gold Coast have been the subject of a historic meeting that has shaken up the record industry.
The two records are both owned by the Australian Recording Industry Association, or ARIA.
They were discovered by two people in a hotel room on the Gold Coast in March.
The first one, which had a handwritten message and was titled “Ladies’ Day”, contained an item called a “black box”, which was a special kind of record that was meant to be kept in a locked box.
The box had been locked at the time it was discovered, and had never been opened.
The second was titled a “white box”, and contained a handwritten note that said: “I’ve had this for a while, but it hasn’t aged well, so I’m not going to keep it.”
The letter was written by a man named “Bart”.
In the note, he wrote: “A couple of weeks ago I found a black box in the back room of a building, the first of many to go missing in Australia.”
The first black box was found in a storage shed on the coast.
The other was found two years later in the parking lot of a motel.
The note and the box were sent to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), which said it was “looking into the matter”.
A fortnight ago, a week before the two records were found, ARIA announced that it had discovered the second black box, which contained an earlier note that read: “It looks like a white box from the late 60s.
Not sure if this is the same one.”
But what could it mean?
It is not yet clear exactly what happened to the first black record, and whether it is the one in question.
The letters from the two people have not been found yet, but there are clues in the way they are written.
In a statement, ARAI said: “…the letters have been written using a variety of styles and characters, some of which may have been scribbled on a blackboard in the early 80s.
It is possible that these are letters written by one of the men who found the black box.”
It is also possible that the second record could have been found by accident, or that someone who had been involved in the process had accidentally misplaced it.
What the two men found was a black metal box, with a handwritten letter in black marker on it.
It had a serial number and a number of boxes, and there was a box of coloured cardboard.
The boxes contained a copy of the original letter.
A copy of it was sent to ABI, which said that it was being examined.
But the copy of this letter had been written in a variety, including “lots of capital letters, numbers and punctuation marks”.
“I think it’s going to be really hard for me to find that letter, because I’ve got a pretty high degree of confidence in it,” ARIA’s secretary general, Paul McGowan, told the ABC’s 7.30 program.
“We can’t see what the handwriting is.
There’s a lot of punctuation mark marks.” “
The handwriting on the blackbox is very distinctive.
There’s a lot of punctuation mark marks.”
What is a blackbox?
A black box is a metal box that has been locked away at a location for a long time.
When the lock is broken, the box is opened and the contents are pulled out.
The contents include records and photos, as well as records.
It could also contain a number or a symbol that indicates the number of the record.
The black box can also contain documents or photographs that are stored in a safe and not visible to the public.
The key to finding the black boxes is to identify what is inside them.
ARIA has said that if the boxes are damaged, they could be destroyed, which would lead to the loss of any documents that were stored inside.
“If it’s a really expensive black box it’s probably going to end up as a record, because it’s not going anywhere,” McGowan said.
“And it’s certainly not going into a safe somewhere, because you’d be pretty unlikely to get it out of the building.”
The box was opened, and it was found to be a record.

The ARIA statement said the boxes contained the original handwritten letter, but no other information. “It’s
