I wasnt sure where to post this so here it is.

Auction I won:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 7006667692

Current auction up now:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... Track=true

I won the first one for John and ended up returning the book for a refund. It is missing pages 123-126, the perferated ones.

My point is buyer beware. Either its missing pages or the seller ripped off the pics from the previous auction.

Yeah, good spot, Mike.

Perhaps more likely a recycled image, rather than being resold by the same person/different ID, given that the current auction has clumsily rescaled the previous image.

The seller was really polite and fast at sending through detailed descriptions.  They told me that most of the stuff was in good condition (inc. issue #1), although I recall #3 had a stained back and a some had smallish corner creases.  And all clean rust-free staples (he says, speaking of his personal phobia  :) ).

I suspect they were better than they looked. Appears to be "regular" jaggies in that image, rather than faults on the 'zines.

It's too bad that woody has been riveted.  I was toying with idea of picking it up for spare pages.  Now I think I'll have a scotch ale and watch this one.  It is to weep.

A scotch ale? Is that beer or booze? I actually made a scotch on the rocks around 6:30 PM EST but I zonked out on the couch before I even started it.

The big brewery in Scotland is McEwans - but they tend to refer to their beers more colloquially: e.g. "a pint of heavy" or "a pint of 80/-" (the /- mark is 'shilling')

a little bit of googling digs this up:

h2g2 - A Guide to Scottish Beer

...which is pretty much true to my experience when I lived there (was a student at Stirling Uni).

I hate drinking Scotch, considering that I'm basically paying the Kennedy family every time I do. But it is so damn good.

I'm starting to think this might make a fun project.  Maybe I'll give it a go after all.

McEwans Scotch Ale is wonderful.  It has the consistency of a stout like Guinness or Murphy's (I like this one better), but the bitterness is toned down. It doesn't have anything to do with scotch.  However, a good single-malt scotch is one of life's little pleasures.  Glenlivet is nice, but I like Glenmorangie and Strathisla, and for the special moments I'll have Laphroaig--it tastes like Scotland, or at least the Scotland I dream of.  Please don't ever think that blended scotches a person usually gets in the states is what scotch tastes like.  That shit is bona fide paint thinner.  But that doesn't mean America is devoid of quality liquor.  A nice single-barrel Kentucky bourbon is also a delight.  I recommend Basil Hayden's or Evan Williams, and if you want something really nice, try Elijah Craig.

Of course, the funny thing about all this is that I hardly drink at all, maybe one or two in a month, when the mood catches me.

For me, there's only one whisky:  The Balvenie.

I used to drink Laphroaig, but suddenly it started smelling too much like carbolic acid.  Now, every time I drink it I feel like I'm in an 18th-century operating room.

My favorite gin also happens to be from Scotland:  Hendricks.  Wonderful.

Laphroaig. That's the sound I make when I drink too MUCH Scotch. Accompanied, of course, by noxious fluids as I pray to the Porcelain God.
