Re: Opaque projector

Hrm... do you EBAY?

I do, thank you, and I am already watching the very item you point to. If it sells at or near the starting bid price, it'll be a decent deal. But if it sells at or near the "buy it now" price with -- gulp! -- $26 bux shipping charge! it will be a terrible deal.

So while I'm waiting to see what happens with that and several other eBay projectors, I thought I'd see if anybody here had something they might want to get out of their garage.

Thanks, Phssthpok.

Up in Smoke?!?  Blazing Saddles?!?!  You're parting with these celluloid classics?  How ever shall you live with yourself after such a sacrifice?   :laugh:

 :laugh: You know how you have one of those days when you could simply ditch all your possessions, throw on a backpack, and go "light" into the world? (For about an hour, until you got cold and hungry?)

Well, I was having one of those the day I started this thread.

I guess if I ever miss them too badly and Netflix can't get them to me quick enough, I could always track freewoman down and beg her to sell them back to me.  :rolleyes:

Make your own!

 :mellow:

Uhhhhh, prolly not. But if the gods of eBay or TMM don't provide ... thanks for the plans. Optics do seem to be the one branch of science that even this arty type can get along with. If I can build a telescope and kaleidoscopes, why not an opaque projector?

Or, once I get up toward the northwest, we could have a sleepover!  Girls' night in!  (Of course, it would take several days to get through them all. . . .)

Several days? Of movies? We could handle that. Do you like parmesan cheese on your popcorn? Will you promise not to tell if I wear pajamas with footies on them?

No, I don't like parmesan on my popcorn--I like a wee bit of dark chocolate nibbled between popcorn bites.  Yum!  Some good red wine and we're partyin'.  And I won't tell about the footie pj's if you don't tell about my wearing men's flannel shirts!  Wonder if we could get some other northwestern gals to get together once I get up that way?  I vote to start with "Up In Smoke"--good for giggles to start things off.  We might need to see Steve McQueen  more than once, though!

Then I think we should invite you to the slumber party, too.  :laugh:

And after watching Steve McQueen, we should watch The Tao of Steve.

Record Albums for Sale (yes, VINYL!)
« Reply #446 on: January 11, 2009, 03:21:41 pm »

In another thread, I posted about having a rare, autographed Beach Boys album and having no idea what its value might be.

That brought up a discussion of what other old vinyl I might have out in the shed and a request that I post titles I'd be willing to sell. Thus this thread. Since I have quite a few albums, I'll break them into various posts sorted by topic.

I don't know what prices I'd put on these. If you're interested in a particular album or albums, just ask and I'll give more info on its condition and I'll do some research to determine a price. Or you could just make an offer. Some albums contain extras like lyric sheets, posters, photographs, etc., which I haven't included in the listings.

In most cases, I've had these since they were new.

I'll start with the juiciest ones:

Rock-n-Roll, 1960s to 1980s

ARTIST -- ALBUM

Blood, Sweat & Tears -- Blood, Sweat & Tears

Beach Boys -- Surfin' USA
Beach Boys -- Surfer Girl
Beach Boys -- Little Deuce Coupe
Beach Boys -- All Summer Long

Rolling Stones -- Flowers
Rolling Stones -- Aftermath

Big Brother & the Holding Company -- Big Brother & the Holding Company
Big Brother & the Holding Company -- Cheap Thrills

Janis Joplin -- Pearl

Country Joe & the Fish -- Country Joe & the Fish
Country Joe & the Fish -- I Feel Like I'm Fixin' to Die

Donovan -- Catch the Wind
Donovan -- Fairytale
Donovan -- Mellow Yellow
Donovan -- Sunshine Superman (also contains a very bad pencil sketch of Donovan made by me as a teenager)

The Mamas & the Papas -- 16 of Their Greatest Hits

Bob Dylan -- The Times They Are A-Changin'
Bob Dylan -- Highway 61 Revisited
Bob Dylan -- Bringing It All Back Home
Bob Dylan -- Another Side of Bob Dylan

Lovin' Spoonful -- The Best of the Lovin' Spoonful
Lovin' Spoonful -- Hums of the Lovin' Spoonful

Hooters -- Nervous Night

Dire Straits -- Brothers in Arms

Jefferson Airplane -- Jefferson Airplane Takes Off (pre-Grace Slick!)
Jefferson Airplane -- Surrealistic Pillow
Jefferson Airplane -- Volunteers
Jefferson Airplane -- Crown of Creation

Jefferson Starship -- Dragonfly

The Doors -- The Doors
The Doors -- The Best of The Doors

Heart -- Heart (1985)
Heart -- Heart (1979-1980)
(Very rude of them to have two albums with the same title. The first is a one-record album; the second is a 2-record set.)

Emerson, Lake & Palmer -- Pictures at an Exhibition (by Mussorgsky)

Simon & Garfunkel -- Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme
Simon & Garfunkel -- Sounds of Silence
Simon & Garfunkel -- Bookends

Beatles -- (no title) The White Album
Beatles -- Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Beatles -- Abbey Road

James Taylor -- Sweet Baby James (note: corner of album cover and sleeve chewed by dog!)

Jethro Tull -- Stand Up

Cream -- Fresh Cream  (early Eric Clapton!)

Crosby, Stills & Nash -- Crosby, Stills & Nash
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young -- Deja Vu

Moody Blues -- Seventh Sojourn (I have 2 copies)
Moody Blues -- Days of Future Passed
Moody Blues -- A Question of Balance
Moody Blues -- On the Threshold of a Dream
Moody Blues -- In Search of the Lost Chord
Moody Blues -- This is the Moody Blues (a 2-record greatest-hits album)

Buddy Holly -- Greatest Hits (okay, so it's 1950s music; so sue me; the album itself is later, though I don't see a copyright date on it)

And that's all for now. More later in categories: sound tracks, folk and faux folk, and misc oddities

Guilty -- and grooooovy -- on all counts.  :laugh:

My lord, I can still get a contact high just listening to The Doors, Country Joe, the Airplane, or Cream.
