My money is all sunk in limited edition CD versions of Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music; that stuff is only gonna get more valuable, baby!! I also have a copy of Taro Sound that I'm expecting will sextuple in value, once the members of QWW unleash their latest rock opera on the world.


I'm hoping all those Sugarcubes box sets that I own will at least pay for my stint in the Old Folks Home. Although with the Icelandic economy in the shitter, I'm guessing that the Icelandic versions of all those singles are nolonger all that valuable.

I think Jake is betting his retirement on 15 copies of Sticky Fingers.

Yes, but ssh, don't tell him, that he's mistakenly collected the subpar mid-80s CBS/Columbia distro'd versions, not the Atlantic-era ones with the zipper. I once heard him mutter, "I'd buy this copy of Sticky Fingers, Murph, but goddamn it, there's a fuckin' ZIPPER on the front of it!! Can you believe that shit??"

Apparently, he used to have something like a hundred different thrift-store copies of Whipped Cream and Other Delights. Each worth... $0.50 apiece, right??

I wasn't so much rubbing it in as looking for someone who might share my pain.

I'm hoping old ticket stubs from shows from the 80's and 90's will get me through my later years. Either that, or my daughter will be going into showbiz after she ages out of the baby pageant circuit.

I had a girlfriend back in the day who used to tell me she had an original copy of The Velvet Underground and Nico with an unpeeled banana, but she left it on the roof of the car when she moved and it blew away. i don't believe her, but I've been combing the woods and the gutters by her old place recently, just in case.

I've got a shoe box full of ticket stubs. Way too many of them are for Depeche Mode shows. Most of them have prices on them right around $10.

Someday I'm going to get drunk at your Gold Coast condo and lick the Cool Whip off that album cover.

You guys are all fucking babies. Stop watching TV and say something...anything. I know a lot of you fuckers are updating your facebook status 20 times a day. Knock that shit off, we have iPhones to pay for.

I do thoroughly enjoy making stupid comments though, but that hardly adds to the impact of the site.


Wrong. Stupid comments make me a better person.

Jake wants to be Lester Bangs. I thought you all knew that.
