I died a little when I saw this.

A $30+ USD vinyl record turned into a $5 USD beverage coaster...

What other atrocities like this one have you seen?

PS: On the other hand, I managed to get a hold of a Liar/Doing All Right and a KYA/Lily of the Valley/God Save the Queen 7" record for $1 and $2 USD respectively. And not in a flea market, sold by an old lady, but OFF AN INTERNET STORE. Lucky me! :D

There are far worse ebay atrocities than a record turned into a coaster.  The record might have been scratched all to hell, but there is just no excuse for this:

That Freddie resin figure is horrible.

What's more alarming is that I HAD SEEN IT BEFORE!
Could it be possible that it was actually mass produced?
I thought it was some weirdo's work.

Have you seen the pseudo official Freddie statues sold at the Montreux Bazaar and (at one time) at the QOL Store?
I had them in my hands back in 2002 and I couldn't believe how bad they looked. And the more expensive one was about 500 USD!!

You should not be surprised about the ugly statue - it's a mini replica of the big ugly statue :) But then, it's art and who am I to criticise a piece of art ?


I do not want any google ads here.

Its a candle, isn't it?
What a pleasure it must be to burn it down.
