con·trac·tion   [kuhn-trak-shuhn] Show IPA
noun
1.whatever
2.whatever
3.a shortened form of a word or group of words, with the omitted letters often replaced in written English by an apostrophe, as e'er for ever, isn't for is not, dep't for department.

And from grammarbook.com
Rule 1
Use the apostrophe with contractions. The apostrophe is always placed at the spot where the letter(s) has been removed.

Always?

That wiki link didn't address spelling. Aint is just another word used in place of other words & it's not a contraction of anything. In my opinion, the use of an apostrophe is misplaced. But what do I know.

Anyway, I finally uploaded a few variant shots in the Taylor Halloween thread for those interested

And that red mondo tissue is sweet
They're a Band Beyond Description, like Jehovah's Favorite Choir

Nice use of "Kevin Dong," Scott. :lol:

Wake up Mondo thread. PLace has been a ghost house the past 12 hours! We got a Tuesday drop to start talking about!

I'm staying with my projections and thinking the drop will happen between 11:50 and 12:20 (CST) so far 5 for 5 on this projection, let's hope to keep the streak alive!

I'd be happy to PB for someone for today's drop. The only thing is I picked these prints up at the gallery already. Do they cross referance names? Credit Cards? I'd hate to be banned just for trying to help someone out.

Can't even remember the last time we had a drop this early in the week! I picked up the Dracula at the show, will be going for the rest except the Creature (I like the poster, but it doesn't jive with the rest).
