A recent magic card is selling for $15,000 Monday, June 8, 2015 | comments
[Also, here it is on ebay and here's an article about it]
At a recent Magic the Gathering Grand Prix, a bunch of players were doing a draft. Drafting is a format where everyone gets random cards. You pick one card, and then pass the remaining card to pass to the player next to you. If you won the entire event, you would get $4,000 and a spot on the Magic Pro Tour.
So this guy happened to open a pack of cards where one of the cards that he opened was worth about $400. Even though it didn't work well with the cards he had already taken, he took it because, well, hey, $400.
Tons of Magic players got really upset that someone would take a card just for it's value rather than take a card that would work well in his deck. They thought he was breaking the spirit of the game. Anyhow, so the player decided he was going to put the card up on sale on ebay with half of the money going to charity. Currently this card, which some people are calling "a piece of Magic history" is selling for crazy amounts of money. [and for the record, I would not call this card a piece of Magic history that warrants anywhere near this price]

Yes, for $6 on Amazon, you can own this figure. And while you're there, have a look out for Uncle Owen too. Recreate that scene where Luke is angsty because he wanted to go to Tosche station to pick up some power converters but has to do chores instead Star Wars: Power of the Force Flashback Aunt Beru Action Figure

Obviously you could do other movies too. Like One Hour Photo if you have some old negatives lying around
Anyhow, I hope that helps if you are looking for obscure, funny, or clever costume ideas. I figured I'd put this up now so I get all the Google hits come October.

We'll see how it works out. I've got to generate all the content for the blog now, but the main goal is to get people onto the site and over to Amazon.

But I wonder if you are other musicians if anyone is just ever like "hey so at work I spend a lot of time filing TPS reports and doing HR duties and I like listening to your music when I do it.
Anyhow, in case anyone was looking for a good set of songs to do mortgages to, here is mine. The key is keeping things pretty fast paced. Enjoy all of my both good and/or embarrassing songs!
Ironically, lyrics may not be safe for work on a few of these.

This song except the extended version. From Attack on Titan [Hulu Link] which I watched in like 5 days while feeding our new baby in the middle of the night. If you think this is nerdy, wait until a few songs down
I've always found the video kind of obnoxious but the song catchy. It's a Far East Movement Parody
