    +1. Australia's an e-delcon country, too, so even priority international (cheaper option) should provide tracking all the way.

    Edit: Nevermind, you're in Canada so this doesn't apply. Sorry.

    Yah, I went through all available options, untracked 4-16 weeks (wot) was 28 dollars, no thanks. X press was 117, 70 was the cheapest option with a 8$ off discount from pp

    Your item must be pretty heavy right?! Is this just a jacket?

    wow that still seams a bit high...First off, what was it you were shipping? And weight? roughly 2-3 pounds?

    If so:
    I would have used priority mail in a RRA box, or something similar, plaster a few stickers over the box labeled RRA, and purchased priority mail e delcon by weight, and insured it. Shouldn't cost more than maybe 35-45$...I think.

    let me ask you, how did you estimate the cost, was it through USPS?

    EDIT: Oh shit, your in Canada...my bad, I'll let your local brethren chime in.

    Nice, with a baby in my house, sometimes I'm limited to what I can listen to or watch, because I have to have an open ear for the youngin. But usually, 2pac, bone thugs, or biggie is what I'll blast while busting out pictures. I should try a show series while working and see how that does.

    Am I missing something? This sounds like Nickelback to me.

    When inventory is flowing heavy, about 75-100 new items a week.

    I'll try again. Don't think I'm going to be able to get over that guy's voice though. Just sounds like standard modern radio rock to me. Also, as a guitar player, those tones make my skin crawl. I'm not the biggest fan of heavy music anymore, but when I do listen to it, I prefer to just go all out. Stuff like this.

    Totally. And sorry if I'm coming across as mocking anyone's music taste (unless you're a big Nickelback/Creed fan). Truly not my intention. I understand that the music world takes all kinds of musicians and fans.

    EDIT: I genuinely love the Bay City Rollers.

    It's all relative though. To some die-hard heavy music fans this probably has way too many hooks and wouldn't be considered "all out" by any measure. (full disclosure, I like Disfear but I think Skitsystem were the better band)

    Totally true. Also, I was at a crust fest a few weeks ago and literally 75% or more of the people there had Skitsystem patches on their vests. That band can probably buy mansions strictly based off of their asspatch royalties now.
