A few with scratches (due to age), the rest in good to great condition.\"

This is not the first time I read such a thing on eBay… SPfreaks members, you all still have a job, right? Chances anyone will be fired soon? I hope not! :roll:

You know, my cd and vinyl-collection I could take it to the grave.

Yeah, you gotta keep your humour even in the worst misery, ha ha, so to speak. :wink:

Actually I’m going back to education this autumn. I’ve worked for eight years now so that could be interesting. My girlfriend works at the emergency unit at a hospital so still, we do have an income.

But I’m actually into the whole idea of not being dependent on the whole system. You know manufacture, buy, get paid, buy, blah blah blah, the money-makes-the-world-go-round-kinda stuff. And STILL I have this huge need of material things in form of various SP records. :? That is strange. At some point of my life I’d like to be homeless. I saw the Fight Club movie yesterday and although I didn’t like it there is many things that true in it. \"The less you have, the more you have\" and so on.

Maybe the Amish would be something for me?

hudderites and amish people actually are more materialistic than you would think. my aunt use to teach at one of their colonies and they all had the front of the house which was all puritanish and the back which had the tv and all the goods. plus i have worked in stores in town and they buy some suprising stuff and they also steal a lot, which is lame. i even saw one with a cell phone with a pop song ring tone. so they are definitely not totally living simply.

I wouldn’t call it nonsense, I get what you mean about the system. Wouldn’t it be nice to not have to be a part of it. I just wish it would change somehow..
as for the Amish, the system is getting to them..it will after so long. I did read that they like to keep up with whats going on.
here’s to us being jobless

What a shit auction. It’s like he doesn’t know the first thing about selling stuff on eBay.

Firstly, no-one will bid on it because it’s FIFTEEN FUCKING GRAND

Secondly, I’d imagine the majority of collectors would have enough of the items there to not justify spending that much.

Thirdly, he could stand to make a helluva load more by selling them off individually.

So apparently I don't post very often these days

That sucks Pip and Reggae, hopefully you guys will make it and find a job, good luck.

I feel really sorry for that guy who needs to sell a part of his heart, poor guy. :(
I can also feel the economy crisis as well since im self employed and got my own lil company, i can feel it, its like a big black cloud hanging over me, hopefully it will not rain, if you get my meaning.
Its not like im fucked or anything atm, no, not at all, still im doing so so, but compare to last years 3 first months, ive lost around 10.000 bucks. :?

In loving memory of Bimbolin.
