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.

Fella's! There's a lady amongst you! [just messing with you] I'm only a lady when I'm at the mother-in-law's house. And even that is debatable.

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

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.
