1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Someone beat this by just $150, and they will also get a Calabrese tie. It's like a free tie (except that you are actually giving money to charity.)

    Cheers,

    Just to clarify that this will be a separate auction, and is NOT part of this one. Sorry for the unclear wording. That wallet is from that reindeer that dug up from that sunken ship, and is in and of itself a very dear object.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    So, I googled "Christmas Bloodbath" for images, not knowing really, what to expect, and the results were more interesting than usual. There was a bunch of anime, which I find sorta meh, and then there was this, which I am going to lobby to my wife as required Christmas watching:

    Also, my Secret Santa is mos def getting a copy of this in his Christmas basket.

    All good choices. You'll see the Hanger Project (@kirbya) reindeer wallet's tomorrow through Sunday afternoon. That's as far as I've gotten on my schedule. The Ring jacket suit from The Armoury (paging @yfyf and @JeffArmoury ) will be next Wednesday. Those are the only things that I've set. I'll probably do the Viberg boots next Thursday. I'm going to try to intersperse the higher priced and more moderately priced items so that everyone can participate.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Someone has gotta beat this to get to $1600. I mean, for the Calabrese tie alone, much less the children.

    Welp, it's been Amazoned. Hope that whoever gets it is old school enough to have a dvd player. Honestly, at this point, part of the awesomeness of movies like that is the cover art, like old vinyl. Streaming just doesn't feel the same.
