Anyone want this for nothing?
« on: 22 January, 2003, 03:28:14 PM »
I moved house recently (why I've not been around much for the last couple months), and last week, I went a snooping in my new attic for the first time.

In there I found a budgie cage, two (disconnected) closed circuit cameras, and two crates stuffed with old copies of Loaded and FHM (which, as you may know, is like Loaded, only with glossier paper which you can wipe clean). Never having read these organs, I was interested to doscover that they seemed to be written entirely by twelve-year-olds with dirty minds.

This gives me the profile of the previous owner of Wood Towers being a bird-loving voyeur with very bad eyesight and RSI, incidentally.

So most of them are in pretty good condition (and imagine my surprise when I found out that they go on eBay for 3 or 4 quid a time. Ker-ching, I thought).  

Anyway, one of the copies of Loaded, dating to 1997, has a sizeable feature about 2000AD's 20th anniversary in it. To be honest, I just want to get rid of the things (my wife's attitude is, it's soft porn, and I should be burning it, not selling it)... so if anyone wants this particular issue (I'll try and attach a cover pic at the bottom of this post) just ask... and I'll send it you.

I'm sure that your wife is a lovely lady and is normally to be obeyed, whithout question, at every turn.

However...

On this occasion, I suggest that you ignore her COMPLETELY and sell the lot on Ebay.

Easy money.  Of course, your wife will see you as a pornographer- but there's a downside to everything...

Pffft...

Absolutely, in fact as a woman i find this lad mag trash more offensive than porn...however better lining your pocket Than creating a fire hazard. sell sell sell, its not like you commissioned & wrote the stuff, or that its presence in the world will swing the balance of laddish crap.

Oh, trust me. I _am_ selling it - I just thought that if there's anyone who wants a copy of Loaded with Dredd on the front (even if it's just for curiosity value), I'd do them a favour.

So.

Anyone want it?

Wood - none of them would happen to have the infamous 2000AD adverts in would they?  I wouldnt mind scans of those, or at least to know which issues they appeared in?

Not having a pop Bou, but wimmins mags would never be offend, deride and demean blokes would they?  Noo...

Then again, not my cup of tea either, I stick to my geeky Private Eye, New Scientist and Fortean Times on train journeys now.  Still, they would be better with more tits in.

Fair Comment.

I normally prefer a pair, though I'm not fussy.

Watcher - no, sorry. no ads.

So, um, I got two emails from people who reckoned they wanted it, mailed them back... and got no reply.

Does anyone want this thing or not?

Send it to MK13 and, brilliant as I'm sure he is at his job, he can pin it on his wall as a reminder of how NOT to do promotional tie-ins.

Be excellent to each other. And party on!

I got the horrible thought just after I typed that...

"God, I hope MK13 didn't plan that promotion"

Excusable, of course, I'm just amending some programs last changed in 1998 and I can't believehow bad they are and the lack of thought that went into them.  Scroll to the top and find out it was me....
