Oooh, there’s an idea! I just finished digitizing my CD collection and am going to stuff it in the attic, but…

Now I have to build that new shop so I have room for the lathe…
One note: The locals pronounce “Marin” with the accent on the second syllable, so the “Mar” is pronounced as it is in “Marine”. Whenever the theaters in this area use a service elsewhere to record the voice-overs for the ads before the movies, the pronunciation as you said it results in lots of giggles and rolled eyes.
