i'll chime in, since im kind of a fan....

first horkey print: pelican 05
favorite horkey print: tough call. probably wbg japan orange no sky, fantomas, genghis tron uncut on WHITE (back up off me), nesting.
runner up: ota orange w/ sketch, purple neurosis
most expensive horkey print (most ive ever paid): fantomas $100 :roll:
most expensive print (value wise): ummm...i got fudge that would melt your credit cards before you got it out of me.
least amount of money ive spent on a horkey: andrew bird 03 promo version. $10 from a local record store. suck it.
most personal meaning: another tough call...purple neurosis came out really good, for being printed without reg marks. it was the first print where i said to myself "hey! im getting good at this!" and aaron at one point told me it was the "best printing he's seen come out of here" (up to that point). but the winner is probably genghis tron. my grandfather was dying the week i printed that. about 3 minutes before i was about to start the final two colors, my dad called and told me my grandpa had passed. none of you probably know this, but my grandfather is the whole reason i ever had an interest in printing, and was a very close friend of mine. after sobbing my eyes out and sucking down a few cigarettes, i got down on it and printed that split fountain and the keyplate. we made the shipping deadline and im sure my grandpa would have been proud. im extremely proud of the way that print turned out. oh yeah...and that silly wbg thing that engulfed my brain.
last horkey print purchased: uhhhhhh...i traded a day of driving for my nesting. one tank of gas.
horkey print you are desperate the most to get: the one that aaron hasnt brought me yet.

though i respect and send my condolences about your grandfather, employees of burlesque and close personal friends of aaron are not eligible.
