SLut of The Week

My neighbour is scrounger .
She shows up at my door with P4 box that's been half gutted .
For a trade of 15 cigaretes I get an 80 gig IDE drive a Gigabyte P4 board with a 2.4 gig cpu 512 ram & a DVD burner .
I'll tossed the case but I now have me a 2.4 gig p4 computer for 15 smokes ! Plus a real nice Monitor card !!

Live long & Slut well.

Ha right on!

I just picked up a Neumann TLM 103 for $500 Canadian (with box & clip) because someone didn't pay their rent

Some of the best deals I've got were from "crackheads" so to speak.

If you can trade her a BJ and 15 smokes for the P4...that's a "special" kind of woman...the kind who hasn't always been a woman!

Personally, I don't think the latest Mac Pro is worth that...

Scrounger

Hey
Tell your scrounger neighbor if she finds a half-gutted Otari 2 track machine, it would be worth a carton of smokes and a 6-pack to me.
Oh......and she can forget the knob-swab.


To hear a tribute song for dumpster-diving-crackheads go to:

Nah...............just kidding

i got a 50-watt hand wired alamo guitar head for 35 bucks from a building super who said a tenant left it behind when they moved.
a pair of snells left on the street, needed two refoams - $25.
a pair of jbl monitors left on the street in brooklyn.

rich people are better sources than crackheads.
crackheads are stupid but they have no loot.
rich people can't fix sh*t and throw everything out.
and they don't know how much anything is worth in the real world.

it's about the only good characteristic of rich people.

Does your mother in law give you computers in return for showing up in drag?

Sheesh, I just threw one out in the garbage recently, too lazy to get it fixed.

One of my ex-GF's got a guitar from her dad, something a tennant had left behind, apparently in lieu of 2 months rent.

A 1927 Martin parlor guitar.



That was more than 3 decades ago but it was worth about the price of a good used car, even then.
