An apology

Why so quiet, I [imagine] you ask? Well, the appauling service I received from my ISP,, meant that I was not able to update MeBay for weeks at a time. Also, I got fed up sending endless emails to people who failed to cough up for things they'd bought from me.

I raised a total of £150 towards my trip to New York and plan to go later this year, probably in the summer.

Thanks to everyone who offered support.

How much money do I hope to raise?

That's a tricky question. How long is a piece of string? I need £250 for the flight plus accomodation and a little spending money. And I'd like to get a cheap secondhand laptop to take with me if possible.

Incredibly, my Mansun promo bookmark has just sold for £25.30, taking the total raised so far up to £84.11 (about $140). Keep the bids coming in - I've put more items up on eBay today.

I am sure that Coldplay are lovely, lovely people but their records bore me rigid. The Blue Room EP was OK though. Why not bid on a super-rare promo CD copy now?

Jack's Hit records t-shirt

Geddit? No? j-a-c-k-s-h-i-t records. Clever, eh? A t-shirt aimed squarely at moody teenage boys who think that swearing is rebellious rather than neccessary.

"What you rebelling against, son?"
"People who find the word shit vaguely objectionable"

I rest my case. All you moody teenage boys out there can bid on this item now.

If you haven't got anything nice to say...

It's hard to think of anything nice to say about the film Velvet Goldmine. So I'll simply say that the David Bowie B-side of the same name is far, far better.

£16.45 raised so far, nearly enough to pay the return train fare from London to Stansted airport - a ticket costs £23...

Two things made me smile today. I've received an e-mail from a Parisian bidder about shoddy novel Come Together. He says "satisfied purchaser happy to burn evil piece of propaganda on Champs Elysee". Secondly, the Gawker story on MeBay is now top Google result for "cheap londoner".

Don't forget that these are just some of the items I have for sale. Click on the 'Bid Now' banner to see all my current eBay auctions.

How much have you raised?
£150, about $271.72.
