There are few who'd deny, at what I do I am the best
For my talents are renowned far and wide
When it comes to surprises in the moonlit night
I excel without ever even trying
With the slightest little effort of my ghostlike charms
I have seen grown men give out a shriek
With the wave of my hand, and a well-placed moan
I have swept the very bravest off their feet

Yet year after year, it's the same routine
And I grow so weary of the sound of screams
And I, Jack, the Pumpkin King
Have grown so tired of the same old thing

Oh, somewhere deep inside of these bones
An emptiness began to grow
There's something out there, far from my home
A longing that I've never known

I'm a master of fright, and a demon of light
And I'll scare you right out of your pants
To a guy in Kentucky, I'm Mister Unlucky
And I'm known throughout England and France

And since I am dead, I can take off my head
To recite Shakespearean quotations
No animal nor man can scream like I can
With the fury of my recitations

But who here would ever understand
That the Pumpkin King with the skeleton grin
Would tire of his crown, if they only understood
He'd give it all up if he only could

Oh, there's an empty place in my bones
That calls out for something unknown
The fame and praise come year after year
Does nothing for these empty tears

Bill,

I'll take good music over a rare record any day of the week. I don't understand these collectors who search all over for a rare record and then when they find it won't put it on the turntable because it's too valuable. To each his own.

But as far as I am concerned, if I am not going to listen to it I'm not going to own it.















 

Remember, it's all about the music........

Nola Boxers
Sunfire True SW Super Jr (2)
McIntosh MC 275
ARC SP-9
VPI HW-19 Mk IV/SDS/SME IV/Sumiko Blue Pt. Special
Pro-Ject Pre Box S2 DAC/Bluesound Node/Pioneer DV 563A
DigiBuss/TWL PC/MIT Cable

Oh no, drove down to DC area today to pick up a VPI 16.5, and stopped by another crackhouse, this one is huge, not good! :duh

Got about equal measure Classical and Jazz, many Classical cleaner versions of things I had, but Jazz all new.

You're new pumpkin icon is scaring me.  :shock:

I had a box of records sitting out in the garage, the culls from 3 boxes P-man had given me of mostly classical a few months back. Couldn't bring myself to throw them in the trash, so brought them in to be recycled.

Good dudes there, reasonable prices, a little more than the Allentown PA crackhouse, but, I pointed out the surface of the Lockjaw LP 'Cookbook', which he had priced at $20, was a little banged up, so he gave it to me for $9.50.

I'll be going back.
