You know what they are. Curtains with a huge beautiful JD face in them. They are up for trade. The options are Coroners Gambit on white vinyl, a CCTTST, Jam Eater Blues, or a clear record depending on what it is. To be fair I will post pics later in the week. The store that I work at does printing and such so I have to spend my break time getting them done. We'll see what happens. Also I can make a few for around your house depending on how good your offer is.

Does the carpet match the curtains?

This is so classic!!!! I'm curious to see if people will buy them. They might just. It's a pretty hilarious novelty item.
ETA: Also, I hate to be a naysayer but I'm not sure if you can legally sell these curtains. It sounds kinda weird I know but I'm pretty sure an artist's image (i.e. their face) is sort of a part of their "brand." What I mean is, the reason these curtains would sell is because they're John Darnielle curtains and they remind people of the Mountain Goats. I don't say this to be a jerk. I say this because I didn't want you to wind up with a whole bunch of curtains that you can't legally sell. Maybe I'm completely wrong and you can legally sell them.

That's okay, I've got Silver Jews curtains.




Well I've got blue curtains, pink cloth and black and grey fabric paint, but it's coming together.

Yes, but can I gaze out through them at the parking lot?

Mercy for the Diaz Brothers!

@Eidyia. I guess it would come down to if John cares. I don't want to do something that would be somehow taking away from him. I'm just trying to have a bit of fun. I feel like he wouldn't care though.

Oh, I thought this was a joke. Yeah, you really can't be peddling wares with someone's face on them without their knowledge.

Yeah, I think he would. Before he left the forums, he told us that he didn't want anyone to sell any Mountain Goats tees, posters, etc. without his permission. But if you want to make some JD curtains for yourself I'm sure that would be completely fine and dandy :)
Just figured I'd let you know what JD's told us b.c. you're new 'round here so how would you know? :D

well, selling self-made tmg stuff is different from trading it for memorobilia. that said, people making curtains with my face on them would definitely creep me out a bit
Re: The Curtains

It would creep me out too, especially considering the fact that for the longest time I was mentally picturing these "curtains" as shower curtains for the longest time? No idea why. Having JD watch me shower brings a whole new level to creepiness.

[i]got into the house
got the curtains drawn
got into the the shower with all my clothes on
hey! hey! let the water come down![/i]

...would also take on a whole new weird meaning.

It'd be like having JD as a houseguest. I bet he'd be the best houseguest you've ever had.
