Epic post, Ray!

So remember when a couple members mentioned that I should drop out of school and open up a used clothing shop / business?

 

Well...

So this was by no means a thrift find, but an awesome discount score via the bay. I currently have been using the predecessor to this, made by another company since the beginning of time. Picked her up earlier today...

I offered a few hundred less than he was asking in the auction, and he actually accepted. It's only the second one I've seen on the bay since it came out. For reference, here's what both pieces go for at B&H- Blimp & Tube. Now, I don't even own the 70-200 yet, but he sold me the tube for $50, so it was a wise investment for the future. Also, it's actually for the Mark II, but physically/functionally it's the same save for the controls on the back plate (I'll get a new back for my Mark III). Grand total- Six Franklins and a Grant!

 

Best of all it's barely been used. It's seen some famous faces already though, it was used to photograph everyone seen here... Sound City.

 

Saw this at the local haunt today, thought it was kinda cool and random. Plus I need some art for my walls. But the frame, though heavy and solid, was scratched up and the glass is broken in the corner. Still at $15 I may see if it's there a week from now. Doubt it though

Seriously though I will share with you guys how amazing this package was when I get a chance!

I believe the plan was that your secret sant-ee would recieve them by the 21st (20th?) of December. I have a few things lined up for mine but I'm holding out shipping in hopes I can find something else!

Congratulations man! Seriously follow what you love. And you can always take your credits and finish later. I took last semester off from school and it was one of the best things I've ever done.

No words for this, Apollo. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

DM7, perhaps you should try to do both by moving to an easier major. With your intelligence, entrepreneurship, and enthusiasm/hard work I suspect better things are waiting for you in future; and you will need and use that college degree. My 2 cents.
post #55257 of 115930

Yeah, it's worth finishing college. Maybe just do one or two classes at a time.

Verified? Tags are heavily faked.

I am not a Tag expert but shouldn't it say Swiss Made? It could be before and/or during a time when Tag didn't use that phrase...? I am not really up on anything Tag Heuer. Did you remove the caseback?
