Austin Garage Sale

Shout out:
To TFG – (thanks Scott!)

“I . . . who took the money?
Who took the money away?
I . . . it’s always showtime
Here at the edge of the stage…”

And another musical note, with a side bar musical trivia question, what’s the link to Austin?

“(We’re goin’) boom boom boom
That’s the way we live
And in a great big room and
That’s the way we live.”

“What a Day That Was”
Stop Making Sense
written/performed by the Talking Heads

This must be the place.

Back to Basics:
“You take fifteen?”

Sure. Anything so I don’t have to move it back into their garage. Some things? I’d pay them to haul it off. However, this is free market economy, isn’t life good? They paid us.

“Is this paint or eye shadow?”

Eye shadow. No, wait, it’s paint. I can’t tell the difference.

Next up? Guy bought a VCR/VHS player. And five tapes, buck apiece. Included “Star Wars” first trilogy. Free market and marketing, huh.

“Pretty dresses – but they are too small for me.” Mental mage.

CDs, one dollar. Which didn’t make any sense since 50 Cent was a dollar. Joke never worked, either.

“How much?”

I looked at the tag. “Four dollars.”

“What is it?”

“I don’t know,” I said.

“What’s it do?”

“I don’t know,” I said.

“Does it work?”

“I don’t know,” I said.

“Will you take three for it?”

“Sure,” I said. and its family of websites participate in affiliate programs, which means there are material connections between the ads, and this site. for appearances —

    That’s Kramer–the cutthroat deal maker. No wonder you’re fabulously…fabulous. Fabled, anyway.
