Ha Smellis, that's really cool!  I like the drumsticks and the old stag bumpersticker.  Nice job!

Sorry Vin there was a photobucket glitch but I think it's back up. Most of this is from the last tour but also has some of my most prized possessions like the Buzzo picks and Crover sticks and drum head. The sticks are from 1991 the drum head is from Men of Porn tour 2005 and the picks are from the current tour. If you look closely you can see the current tour setlist, MELVINS qee, paper weight and MELVINS-L nerd list member patch. Vin knows what that is.........

The MELVINS Listserv has been around a long time and is referred to as the "nerd list". Here's a link to join

http://members.tripod.com/egulphy//melvinsland.html

One of the members made a patch a couple years ago and sent them out to many of us. Beto got one a couple years ago and someone thought that Mackie had made them, but it is not true. There is an old post on here somewhere about that including a picture of the patch, maybe Anaconda could find it. I'll post a better pic when I can.

I'd make one of those except my 6' X 6' bathroom walls are out of room.

Damn Glen, my wife said hang the damn thing right there in the front room in the middle of the wall, she even bought me the frame last year. I had Melvins / Jello posters in there at first but just could not complete it until the MELVINS came back in full force as more of their own entity. I feel your pain brother, my wife will let me hang the shrine but she doesn't "get" the MELVINS. I figured out Pigs of the Roman Empire last night thanks to someone posting the tabs on here and was playing it over and over relishing the low end of the "D" vibrating the shit out of the floor, and imagining I had a huge afro. She just shrugged.  :shock:
