    Nice lamp. From whence it came?

    Tommyon February 4, 2010 @ 3:28 PM:

    Freakin’ excellent find. Props!

    Do you ever ask yourself what the point of buying all this shit is?

    brianon February 4, 2010 @ 3:30 PM:

    I mean, granted, it’s pretty cool, but what in the world are you going to do with it?

    Michael Williamson February 4, 2010 @ 3:31 PM:

    What am I going to do with it? Look at it.

    Lamp is from this really great vintage store called Home Depot.

    brianon February 4, 2010 @ 3:35 PM:

    Ha. I like looking at it, too, truth be told. Not sure where that snap came from. Probably some inner guilt from some recent ridiculous purchase of my own.

    brianon February 4, 2010 @ 3:36 PM:

    ha. Vintage: You can do it, we can help.

    20% of the shit I buy on eBay goes right in the trash because I don’t look at shit clearly I just bid. Pretty dumb.

    brianon February 4, 2010 @ 3:43 PM:

    :) I bid on an old barbour jacket and was stoked to get it for like $15. Yeah, two months later, it’s still being shipped from Taiwan and I paid $30 shipping. Awesome.

    call me crazy, how bout carrying ice in it! Keep on buying shit Michael!

    How ’bout scanning that sweet distressed logo on the bag and screen printing a limited run of tees for yr ACL shop—or the next pop up. ACL + Random eBay finds. I do like the carrying ice idea as well but let’s take it to the next level shall we? Use it to carry Ice and Beers!

    I’d be all over a City Ice tee shirt.

    If anybody wants those lamps, I bought a few over at office max, they still have them. They are called Catalina Pharmacy desk lamps.

    MW, I am getting married in Cleveland this June. I just found your Q&A on selectism. It was a help, some great leads. Seriously. I just booked 3 of your suggestions. Any suggestions for local bands? My fiance just nixed Gil Mantera.

    I would have bought it too and hung it on the wall

    Perfect for making artillery punch.

    At least the head on the drywall screw isnt stripped out. Someone knows how to use a screw gun!

    Nice bag. T-shirts are great, but what about a line of vintage looking shopping bags?

    Down with the PLASTIC BAG!

    J.Pon February 5, 2010 @ 7:39 PM:

    Mikey, i threw that bag out 6 months ago – i cant believe the garbage scavenger on my block has an ebay store! small world.

    Samon February 6, 2010 @ 10:34 AM:

    That is kinda nifty.

    karenon February 6, 2010 @ 10:42 AM:

    coooool michael. geesh you’re getting so many comments lately!

    Jimon February 6, 2010 @ 3:28 PM:

    Do you know what we all are? We’re the nerds who were unpopular when we were younger and now we’re trying too hard to be cool.

    Samon February 8, 2010 @ 10:56 AM:

    Jim, I was WAY cooler when I was younger.

    shawnon February 9, 2010 @ 4:25 PM:

    funny, i have the target version of that lamp….the on/off doesn’t work too well but same look

    Rondell Jenkinson February 10, 2010 @ 12:32 PM:

    Looks to me like you got ripped off. That bag finna fall apart the minute you put your hand lotion in there! Hey Michael William! I got an old burlap sack you can buy offa me for $100! LOL

    jks in pdxon February 15, 2010 @ 1:00 PM:

    baffling, some of these comments. the bag has transcended the 20th century and been transformed by it into an artifact, however plebian its origin. it’s a piece of art to some, me included, trash to those who stuff the landfills with good things in favor of disposable trash-culture flotsam. there’s a term for what it vibrates with: beausage, i.e., beau[ty from u]sage. this is a resurrection.

    oh, look, there are buds on the tree out the window…
