Now that's what I call a "dish warp"!

With a wad of Blue-Tac the concept will be leak-proof! :-)
This reminds me of a "project" my sisters did back in the late-60's. They left LP's in the sun and in various oven temperatures to soften. Then, they molded them in wavy bowl-shapes. Painted, ribboned, and glittered then in myriad ways and sold them at craft fairs as fruit/candy bowls. I don't even want to KNOW what LP's were used to this end.
The question is, how did this lp get so warped? I hope all your other goodies are safe.
Sounds like you need to search eBay for another pressing of that lp.
Even if I have a pressing with only a slight warp, it still bugs me to see my arm going up and down thacking the warp.
and I trash it for a new one.
Yes I am now, real picky, even If the cover has a seamsplit, or the slightest wear I will search out a new copy. Most times a japaese pressing for my colection.
Back in grade school (20-some years ago), an assignment for program I was in was to create a product and a marketing campaign for that product. A guy in my class came up with a product quite similar to this. He put old 78s in his oven until they got soft, then shaped them into bowls. He called it a "Disco Dish" - I always thought that was clever.
I remember him saying that he had to use 78s because standard issue K-tel LP weren't thick enough, or the vinyl was too crappy, etc. (something along those lines - it was a long time ago).
