So Who Has $17,000.00 To Loan Me?



And that's with eight days left to go...What an amazing piece of history though--a "one-of-a-kind acetate" of the Warhol-approved version of the Velvet Underground & Nico album for sale on eBay right now. I remember seeing this on a VU unauthorized documentary not too long ago. I'm sure the bidding will probably get substantial higher in the final day.

You know, it is the season of giving; maybe if you each pitched in a few measley grand you could make me a very happy boy this Xmas.... :)

I'm wiring the cash right now.

It's from my 7D stipend — don't tell Donna!

Hooray!

Holy crap....it's up to $38k now & the auction is still several days from ending!

Speaking of the VU, I just picked up a great John Cale box set called "New York in the 60's". It's a collection of his minimalist experimental and drone work with Tony Conrad, Sterling Morrison, etc. I'm going to do a review of it soon.

It's over $100k now....if I owned my house I'd so be applying for a second mortgage right now.

Up to $151,000 with a little over a day left to go...

I was just checking out the ridiculously popular brooklynvegan.com blog & they did a story today on this album being sold. With the same picture I used. Thief! :)
