Awe, Mahatma Holly. I like it. Your wife and my wife should be friends. She's got me doing catch and release with cockroaches.

OHHH hell no. If the roaches in Austin are anything like the roaches in Houston, I'd be getting the shotgun out. I still have nightmares.

Ha! They are indeed on that scale. I'm from Louisiana originally, so I'm used to those guys. The trick is the cup and paper method.

Haha, yeah, kind of. I remember a few years back it was kind of an unwritten rule that if you got something from a proxy but you decided to sell the piece, you would split the profit with your proxier. I've always thought that was silly. I mean i understand why you would do that but if i gift or proxy you something, it's yours to do whatever the hell you want with it. That's why back then, i prefer trades more than anything else.

i'd think levi's would cough up $100k to get those if they believed them to be legit.

remember that guy who found an enormous nugget on his property in gold country cali, and then tried selling the place for some stupid amount? and then it turned out when they tested the gold it was Australian? lol if it seems to good to be true it often is.

write it down, i'm calling shenanigans on this.
Bro, i read the most expensive pair of jeans was a pair from in late 1800's that levi's has locked away in their valt. Those are valued at around 300,000.

Thanks, I've had it for 3 or 4 years, just showing it close up so there was no walrus confusion. No walruses (walri?) were injured in the making of this carved bird.

Probably the nicest piece of cashmere I have found from this era. With it's lack of holes, I am amazed that it does not smell of mothballs.

The son of founder/owner of Anderson Little was on AAAC previously talking about the fact that they were back in business and selling Blazers.   He was a pretty decent guy.   He might be interested to see such a nice vintage coat made by them.

I'll wade into the vinyl debate...

As mentioned before; the stereo system you are using is very important. It is the limiting factor 99% of the time. It doesn't matter if you have the perfect turntable and flawless vinyl, if your amp or speakers are weak, everything will sound like crap. Once the signal gets passed through a mixer and amp, and speakers; it isn't clean at all... That's why some people run tube amps and spend tens of thousands on speakers.

The biggest reason people are getting into vinyl is to get back to an earlier time; when music was not so easily accessible and was appreciated more. They like deciding on an album to get, getting a physical item, dedicating time to listen, and looking at the cover art while the music plays. Today music has become cheap and disposable. It's all files on a disk, sitting beside some word docs and spreadsheet files. Vinyl is the opposite of that, going back to an earlier time.

Well said.
