i have £109 on my paypal account. What should i buy on ebay?
i buy in general then. or should i save it like a loser
This album, fer starters
we've been over this: P-O-N-Y.
(in all seriousness though, i'd get music or maybe some old magazines because i'm a nerd like that. like some ancient national geographics)
i'd spend it on music and/or clothes
They're the highlight of many a hotel foyer and dentist waiting room.
and they had a whole wall of them in the back, but you couldn't touch them because they were all dry and fragile. (plus you were supposed to be working.)
The oldest I've seen was a 1960s edition one, can't remember the exact year. It was just randomly in this hotel room I stayed in. It had those cool 60s-quality photographs in it, all grainy and cool and stuff.
But no, nothing as old as the one you found on eBay up there ^. That'd be amazing.
from the 60s. I stole two and have included images from these magazines in at least five paintings now.
that's the oldest i found. it could be yours for one small payment of $140.
someday i'm going to be wealthy as Bill Gates* and have a big nerdtastic library full of both books and stuff like this.
*only not really, obviously
"A Winter Voyage Through the Straights of Magallen" written by an admiral - quality.
There is a part of me that wants to have a library that necessitates the ownership of a wheeled ladder... it'd be cool in a very uncool way.
a ladder's like what officially takes it to the next level of fantasticness. a huuuge, multi-story even (but sort of atrium style, so it's all like one big room still), amazingly-stocked library is my dream. i once spent like an hour perving over photos of big nice libraries on Flickr for future inspiration. (abandon reply? i think not.)
PS: just to muscle in on the whole old magazines thing, my granddad once gave me this big binder full of every 1937 (I think) edition of this defunct fortnightly news magazine that he'd been given as a present by his old RAF squad commander who used to collect them or something and it was full of articles about Chiang Kai-Shek and things. It was like the best thing ever.
do you tragically no longer have it?
Well, at my non-university home...
I'm not sure what was with the past tense there. Something must obviously I guess have surpassed it.
