drop me a line if you’d like pictures but please don’t waste my time, only ask if you have the funds :slight_smile:

You can upload photos to here directly, it’s not like PFM where you are forced to use a hosting service.





Ohh, I’m so tempted to post that over there, but I’m in the too fucking lazy sector.


It’s nearly time for the Annual Great Hurting Of The Butts… :wink:





Honestly my photo library is awash with insane images, if there’s anything that catches your eye (from the list) let me know and I shall photograph it especially for you!

Anticipating possible @Ruprecht top hat envy soon.


I had a Mook hat for a little bit - Quite liked it

Is the donkey a self-referencing piece, or is that for sale too?

Also, you can upload as many photos as you want (I think) into a single post, the 5 photo limit is how many you can drag-drop into the bulk uploader in a single hit.


both, but i’m not helping extract it from its sewer, it likes it down there and it’ll make every effort to drag you down with it

Not helped by the fact PFM has no image hosting. So posting it elsewhere and getting the img links, especially on mobile, is a pain in the arse! I’m definitely too lazy for that shit



Not unknown to use AA for that purpose…

Quite appropriate for here, I would think.

Must say, this thread has very different content to my Big Post Christmas Turn Out…

If you think that’s a pain you should try HiFi For Sale :rage:
