at this point i would gladly trade the infamously dicked up CCTTST for a white coroner's gambit.

Saw one on eBay last week. Gone now, naturally.
Yep. My bid's were all outbid up to quite a large sum of money (well, for me anyway - i've no idea of the usual value of a white CG but i wasn't willing to pay $100 for it (and even that may not have won)



let's get dressed up in costumes and dance by the bar.

I refuse to apologize for my delay. Nevertheless:

If you need the tracklist, go back a few pages.
Hell yeah, thanks!

hey, can anyone tell me what the difference is between a You and What Army? cassette that's cover is red, as opposed to a cover that is black? Other than that the colors are different?

Grazie, grazie, grazie.

Mine's beige, so I'm presuming no difference. I'd say Deden doesn't even remember how many colours were used, in case yr thinking of collecting them all!

I thought your post would be about the vintage West Texas maps JD tweeted about today. Made me regret not keeping the ones I had.

thanks john. i have abandoned twitter so i had no idea about that tweet, but i will now of course have to check it out.

@KenJennings @jamietie tMG map trivia: some All Hail West Texas promos went out with antique Texas road maps; have never been seen on eBay.

vintage West Texas maps... Made me regret not keeping the ones I had.

Dug into the archive last night and found one! I had three or four but sent them out with the AHWTx promos before the Irish dates way back when ('02).

Is there a way that JD could know that without checking eBay constantly?

Something that unique/notable is bound to show up on his radar.

Does Jon's maroon pajamas in the "The First Part" video count as an elusive tMG item? Because I want them.

Also found this:



which is the first ever JD/PPH setlist with tMG as an permanent duo (as opposed to PPH sitting in on bass, per 90s tours), from the 2002 IRL/UK tour warm-up gig in Rochester, NY, October 2002, as seen in this pic:

I truly desire that new neutral milk hotel poster that was just on eBay for 80 bucks. only, I wanna pay like 20.
November 14, 2011 12:35PM | Re: What Elusive Mountain Goats Item Do You Desire Most?
Thanks for the scans johnp.

JohnP, archivist hero.

Your actions inspire me to post my own early tMG rarity, which some of you may have seen before. I unfortunately don't have any high quality (or low quality) scans as the item in question is not in my possession. Nevertheless, I present a picture of the only cassette copy of The Coroner's Gambit, with a handmade cover by JD.

Edit: Also right click to see an un-cut off version

Found a few nice things, of which these two are just the first scanned in. Posters for Irish dates in '96 and '02. More to come, including the matching flyers.

Again, right-click for full image.
