What do you do for a living Mr. Flipper, other than flipping of course?

Yea, they're everywhere. I like to call it the Tickle-me-Elmo phenomenon because it's oldest example I recall. Concert tickets, Art Prints, Video Games, Sporting events to name a few. At least this d-bag put a target on his forehead so that we can abuse him! With all due respect flipper, EAT A DICK!!!

I'm not sure I understand all the hubub. He was there, he was greedy when he bought 20 posters to sell on ebay, but what would have happened to those prints? My guess is someone else would have listed them on the bay...It's not as if this was a tough commodity to get at the shows.
Now I do take an issue w/ his sale of 4 of the Pollock Robot prints. Those did have a strict limit and sold out in less than a day. He screwed others out of that print that were at the show. :twisted:

His guns blazing flipping emails aren't winning him any friends either....

I'm the one who bad mouths this self proclaimed hustler, though not quite every day, and who gave the neg feedback. I did state that he refunded my money after a month, and I wish I could say I'd deal with the guy again cause he has ALL the 10k lakes, but burn me once and I learn not to trust. My Coachella was not packaged as promised (no craft paper). Tube was sh!t so it arrived damaged. i notified him within a week of the auction ending that I received the damaged poster. He promised to replace with new, but for weeks he continued to flip more of them while he took a month to respond - then oops, no mint ones left. He's got a few neutrals on the bay, so maybe others are more forgiving than I. Buyer beware.

As to "how would verybody get thier prints"? oh please. If scalping flippers didn't snatch dozens of them maybe some actual fans of the bands or the art might have a shot for a price that's not 3-4 times the original. A parasite is a parasite. You may be a necessary evil but you are evil none the less, and when I see a parasite I try to squish 'em and warn others of their sting. I hope there's karma for your kind someday.

i'm picturing you saying this with a scraggly beard and a bottle of wild turkey...looking all pale and huddled in a corner...bags under your eyes...haven't slept for days, etc., etc.!

i'm sure you're not, but that's the visual i am getting!

hope you can pull out of the funk in time to meet me for a beer in denver!
