i dare say
some two-timin POS got his vinyl tossed while at work/out of town for sureWell, yesterday morning, 8 AM, in an alley just off rue Jeanne Mance here in Mtl, someone did a massive Vinyl LP garbage dump. We're talking 6 recycling bags full of this stuff. Of course I stop and check, and hey, wait a sec, there's some great stuff here. Pretty much every album from The Clash/Elvis Costello/Roxy Music/Fleetwood Mac.... + a ton of jazz stuff from Thelonious Monk, Bill Evans, Count Basie.... I collected as much as I could physically carry (which btw, is around 200 lbs, apparently, it was like carting a fridge home on yer bike).
Anyways, spent the past few days casually flipping it. Made 200$ going on 300$ so far.
Not bad for 1/2 hour of seriously heavy lifting following by casual selling.
..... seriously tho' that was the most whacked vinyl dump I've ever stumbled upon. I had to leave at least 2/3rds behind because it was physically impossible to carry. And it was all good shit.
Always so weird, that.
Thought about that. Of course I want to blog my Finds.Polymorph, you also find the text books right?
You should start your own MTL Finds thread and there should be a total $$$ through each year at the top.
Thought about that. Of course I want to blog my Finds.
However, I don't want to alert others to the possibilities.....
btw, from my textbook hauls this year, I made a whopping 2324$ during the month of May (a record breaker!)
another 1675$ during the month of June
July was a relatively lame 1235$
August, so far, will be gangbusters...
I know exactly what I make, cuz I write it down every day/week.
Don't want to blog/gloat..... cuz I don't want others giving me competition.
er, yeah, my more *real* job is I do (online) research company involving statistical analysis into the Arts in Canada.That's awesome. Do you have a day job as well or are you a student?
awww.... see, my complaint and sympathie with the *younger generation* is that, what, they're now fighting for a 15$ minimum wage? At some shit-idiot job. THe rest of them, more educated, in fact, are doing all these *unpaid Internship* jobs. I mean. WTF. Hello kids. NEVER WORK FOR FREE!Good on ya. See, a little time and effort is all it takes.
Lesson here for a lot of the younger generation who complain about not being able to get a job.
