Your eBay Auctionatrix hasn't retired. I took a brief sabbatical so I could get the flu and move to a new apartment in a secret bunker beneath the Hudson River. No, the two are not related. Really. Shut up.
Now I'm back and ready to hawk various collectible and interesting wares in an effort to separate you from your ill-earned cash, and to facilitate the delivery of that dirty money to the Freeform Station of the Nation.
I just posted three tasty tidbits to WFMU's auction page. See here fer yerself.
Original Autographed Photo of Winona Ryder
Yay-uh! This is a photo still from the 1991 Jim Jarmusch film Night On Earth. In the background is an out-of-focus but still smokin' (literally, har har) Gena Rowlands. Somehow, we got our nicotine stained paws on this photo which was actually signed by Ms. Winona Ryder. Holy crap, right?
It looks like she signed it with one of those fine point black Sharpie markers. Good choice! (When I get all famous and stuff, I'll make sure to carry one of those around with me, too.)
Fred Rose 78rpm Record
"Don't Feel Sorry For Me" b/w "No One Will Ever Know" This record, a special radio pressing, was released on the Columbia label.
Aw c'mon, you know Fred Rose. He co-wrote some of the finest popular and country music classics of the 1940s with his writing partner, Roy Acuff. Sometimes Mr. Rose wrote under the nom de plume "Floyd Jenkins," as he did for the B-side of this rekkid.
Fred Rose also wrote, with Hank Williams, some of Mr. Williams' finest and most popular songs.
Rose is a charter member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, he is in the Nashville Songwriter's Hall of Fame, and the Songwriter's Hall of Fame. Nice credentials!
Fuck Christmas in July with Fear
Hey Beef Baloney, there's too many of us so let's start a war with more beer.
L.A.'s finest with their ode to America's Favorite Holiday. This very collectible 45rpm record features an unclean side entitled "*uck Christmas" and a clean side, "(Beep) Christmas" so you have something to play for the kiddies. It comes in the original paper sleeve with the beloved stamp on it.
Yes, it's the original issue on Slash Records. Don't venture your way to the latter half of 2008 without it. That is, if you are the lucky highest bidder. Act now. Operators are standing by.
We can start a New Jersey!
