So here’s the notice I got on the “About” page:

Hi there, I am liquidating my record collection this week, and I’m offering up my copy of Fear of smell.
You can my erupting penis here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170976275792

And on the actual auction here’s some more information:

Only 1000 made, and each cover a labor of pervy love. Mine is particularly clever in that it upcycles a Jack and the Beanstalk graphic so that the beanstalk has prickly haired balls and an ejaculating penis head. 20 years later, it is still hilarious- maybe even more so today.

In 1993, I was fortunate enough to be a part of the Chez Hiltz scene. There was a show about once a week in John’s house, just 5 miles away from where I lived with my mom. Some shows were easier to find out about than others, but I had the honor of getting a call when something was going on. And because of that I was able to see most of the bands featured on this comp in a tiny basement room. Native Nodd was one of the especially mind blowing bands to see live. Rorchach played there quite regularly, and my sister (12 years my junior) has cred among the twenty something Brooklynites because I would take her to those shows when she was about 4 years old, where I definitely damaged her view of the world just a little, and in the best possible way.

(track listing for the comp)

I am liquidating my record collection, holding almost nothing back, starting with LP’s. If this goes well, I’ll do 7″s next. It funny, doing this has stirred up a lot of emotions.

I’m just done serving as custodian to things. I’m simply seeking a more zen-like existence, completely focused on tattooing. So, I’m looking for new homes for this vinyl I amassed, mostly in the 90’s. These records have been safely stored for about 2 decades.

The back is a similar to most event – two tracklisting stickers and a large “Only 5 Made”. The auction picture isn’t so hot, so no sense really posting it here.

Happy new year!
