what kind of scumbag would ask a hyper-inflated price for a MELVINS recording or object?
i agree thats why when i was the first to see the thread on amrep i decided not to get another copy to flip and instead leave them for other people to have the chance. ive got one copy for myself and thats all i need.
pinkys ebay feedback shows 3 sold already, and the one she sold me makes 4 and she must have a personal copy so 5 already, thats a scumbag.

I wouldn't call her a scumbag. I think she is just a good capitalist that is providing a service that people obviously want.

oldernie

but then people wouldnt need the service if people like her didnt buy up all the stock first. its the same with ticket touts, its not really a service they are providing because had they not mass purchased all the tickets there would have been enough to buy one from the ticket company direct. the reason she is worse than most is because not only does she have no shame but she even braggs and rubs peoples faces in it.
but it backfires on her as i know quite a few people that wont even bid on her auctions and if she didnt piss so many people off she would have good custom. if she wasnt such an ass about things she would have seen more of my money but she tried to charge $500 for the cd boxset and then call me a fag for saying i wasnt interested in being raped by her.

The truth is that is a great way of making money providing a service. She has a way of getting these CDs and takes advantage of the opportunity, there's nothing wrong with that. She's into making money and I am sure you all are into the same thing. If you don't want to support her, don't buy from her, but I am sure there are many people that will (or had in the past).

I think the Melvins should think a way of selling these things directly to fans online through some kind of pre-order thing, as some have said before. Selling these things only at shows or at really small amounts (15 or so) online, will guarantee that some of these CDs will end up selling in Ebay at high prices. It's cool that the Melvins make money off these CDs by selling to whoever gets the chance, but I would appreciate a little more concern for the hardcore fans.

Brilliant story, Ian!  :lol:  :lol: And what harm has Ian ever done to Fart that he deserves to be harrassed no matter what he writes, even when it's funny and brilliant as fuck? Digger > Nigger and an Fuck > Shut!  :lol:

"Selling these things only at shows or at really small amounts (15 or so) online, will guarantee that some of these CDs will end up selling in Ebay at high prices."

True, and it also keeps people talking about it, and keeps people watching the net for news about the band, and basically keeps interest going at all times. The band knows it, it makes great business sense without the band (possibly) losing money using mass production.

That's not capitalism.  It's mercantilism.  Read a book.

Actually it would be better to say it's commercialism (a heavy emphasis on profit).  Read a book?  Don't be a ass.
