Do We Owe THEM A Living?

Okay now this is getting awesome. So someone (as you can read below) grabbed a release show-only version of the LP (point of a show-only version of a record, if you don't know, is to create a memento of a specific night, meaningful after the fact to the buyer and seller alike) and stuck it directly on Ebay. A lot of people alerted me to this, I got a bunch of sand in my vagina about it, as you can read below, and in a day it went from $108 to the $800s, to the thousands, as many true Kids figured it out and did what they do best - fuck with shit, until it shot up into totally ludicrous sums and wrecked the auction. And again when another one popped up the next day. Did I mention I fucking love you resourceful saboteurs? 

Oh yeah hey, there's a show tonight! Oh yeah, the MUSIC! On the home field. Hamilton, with Taken, To The Lions, Hoosier Poet and Vatican Chainsaw Massacre. At the Casbah. We're recording it. Check for what tickets are left if you're local, may be all gone by today. But back on this weekend warrior train, and tour's only a few weeks off. Sunday is the Sonic Boom show (picture above is the screened one for sale at that show). 5pm, Bathurst & Bloor. All Ages, Free. 


Well that took all of a few days. It's fucking stupid, not because we didn't expect it to happen, it's a free country (and a freemarket), but because there were people there that actually wanted to own it (for $15) that couldn't get it, because some douche bought it just to do this with it. Sorry to single you out, but this is, well - pretty cunty. What the fuck is this, Flip This House? For Christ's sake, please don't pay some jackass $180+ for this. It's just a fucking record, with a picture I made stuck on the front, not a four leaf fucking clover. There's all kinds of limited, bizarro vinyl coming (pic disc, 180 gram gatefold) if that's your thing. Dumb dumb dumb. Wake me up in 2 or 3 more generations. 

EPILOGUE - Hah. Well today it was up over $180, and that was indeed getting fucking ridiculous. But right now it's at $830, which means either that German hardcore kids have got to it, or that someone's starting just flooding it with ridiculous bids. Good fucking work, if this was you.

chris, you should've just kept half the records, told everyone it was sold out. Then you could've put the other 40 up on ebay and made madddd money!

hey, wasn't the first lp on bay like 14/85 or something? this one is like 69/85?

Colohan (TM) said...

You dudes fucking rule. We need to make a Fiend-Club type thing so shit-disturbin' Robin Hoods like you can all be in it.

Hah, and the 69/85 definitely came from the Burlington show, i was finishing assembling/numbering them while surrounded by kids trying to buy them, kept getting interrupted and lost my count, when I hit 69 i just kept writing that on all the rest.

Anyway thanks, see this is The Kids that I know.

democracy in Canada! Give the seller a break! He's selling for a friend. Is there a crime to sell your record? Whatever he did for his friend was a favour. If I had the record, damn, I'd put it up on eBay. Once you receive a record, it's yours, just like having a slut, it's yours to keep until you don't want it anymore. You guys are all morons!

Sure thing, man. Thanks for the tip. Hey, make it a little easier for us morons then, get yourself a shirt or sign made that says "I Don't Even Want, Care About Or Intend To Keep This, I'm Gonna Sell It An Hour From Now For Money Like You Guys Yourselves Don't Even See In A Week". Then I can kick you in the cock and sell it to the kid behind you that actually wants it for what it is. Cool, so we're straight?

PS. If you have sluts you don't want anymore I believe you can now recycle them.

Today in New Zealand there was a horrid April Fools joke played on us.. we were told Cursed were to be touring over here sometime this year. Goddamn, we got so fucking excited.

Fuck I hate pranksters now.

Colohan (TM) said...

Hey. Waiting to hear back about Japan. If we can set that up, we're gonna try and do Australia. And if we can do THAT, then yeah, we may possibly make it to New Zealand if we can afford it. April Fools. (No, really, we are trying. Cross your fingers.)

dimery said...

I'll help you guys afford it. I'm sure we can all rustle up a few dollars here and there, and some decent as fuck support.. namely Strangers. I think a "Possible Cursed Tour in New Zealand" raffle is in order. You have no idea how much the kids over here would appreciate something huge like this. But yeah, fingers crossed..

i'm keeping this record for ever hahahaha
