Yeah is what we had...

And now it can be yours. Grandaddy is a band on the label I work at and they've stopped being a band. Jason Lytle (the main dude) gave us a bunch of his personal items to be used in contests and auctioned off. Well stupid eBay has some stupid rules about auctioning things off for charity. Basically you have to use this 3rd-party company that takes a 10% cut. Because the listing mentioned words like "proceeds" and "charity", it resulted in the auction being removed two times already and me banging my head against the computer continuously for the past 48 hours. Especially a bummer because less than 24 hours into the second attempt at the auction, before it was removed, the high bid was over $450. The current high bid is about $80. I guess they are trying to prevent fraud, but still it's super super super annoying.

It's finally up sans any mention of who the charities are. In case you are curious, The Emmett O'Loughlin Fund and the National Wildlife Federation are going to see 100% of the money raised. If they remove it again tonight for whatever reason, I'm going to eat my shoe.

Check out the lot for Auction #1 featuring a pair of Jason's sunglasses, one of his old trucker hats and my favorite, an embroidered kitty pillow. Auction #2 has some really fun stuff in it and we'll be launching that in the next week or so.
