LATE! item #22, 23, 24 and 25 in my swallowing diamonds project.

Neil was in town this week, so great to see that bearded wonder. However, I was derailed by work and sick so am behind on the one-thing-a-day out of the treehouse project i have engaged with myself to do aka SWALLOWING DIAMONDS.

here is Neil reading his beautiful collection of COMIX BOOK from Mr. Denis Kitchen of Kitchen Sink Books, back in action under the Dark Horse roof.

item #22:

the item #21: the glass kitty cat must not have been found by a swallowing diamonds reader, because no one sent in a photo, so I am giving the GOLDFISH POOL print by David Mack to faithful twitterer @Mattncoley who has been my cheerleader for awhile. He (they) have encouraged me in the project and spread the word. i call it karma- enjoy, Matt n' Nicole w/my thanks!

item #23:

another one of the Neil Gaiman quote mugs is back on ebay: CLICK here, it's got ONE MORE DAY.

comes with 4 Chinese New Year chocolate dragon coins...go and bid, right now, it's only a measly 5 bucks.

item #24:

FREE! this lovely musical tribute to Neil: with tracks by Ego Likeness, Tori Amos and that hotty Voltaire. just put in the comments, some new (or old) music you are listening to, that i might like.

I really need some new music.

item #25: a two part GODSMACK tour swag package over on EBAY, click here.

My first tour was the mighty Boston-based Godsmack on a bill with the Deftones back in 2001.

We were out on 9/11 and that brought about the end of our tour.

Am putting up for auction a two-pack of embroidered goodness:

1. a 2001 tour swag shoulder bag with about a zillion pockets, never used.

2. a Dickies-brand work jacket with two pockets and two lovely embroidered logos, this one was from the 2006 tour Godsmack/Rob Zombie. it is a size small, and I wore it proudly.

Sully! What a sweetheart. I believe in a voice like that. One of my favorite tours, and in fact, the tour I met my beloved roadie husband and dear friend Red.

i'll throw in an old pass and setlist if i can find...

this auction is only available in the States, because it's going be a heavy send. starts at 99 cents, as all my auctions will.

(sorry the photos look so crappy, i need to learn to photograph clothing items)

as always, thanks for playing.


  1. New music: awesome Canadian band Whisky Trench Riders!

  2. I am really into Azam Ali at the moment

  3. The new album by Young the Giant called "Mind Over Matter" is fab. "Camera" and "Firelight" are my favorites by far.

    meanwhile, how did i lose all the comments? signed, dumdum

  12. ohmigod, the comments are i losing my marbles?
    I wrote down EVERY recommendation for checking out this week- thank you all, sincerely.

  13. Extra credit, tee hee, i suppose there's a first time for everything. Thanks, Teacher! :)

    Also, i was going to make you a mix of new music, but i know you are trying to get things OUT of the treehouse and not bring stuff in, so instead I will donate some $$ to that tiger sanctuary in Wisconsin...


    P.S You no dumdum! Gmail was having problems the other day, so perhaps losing the comments was just a temporary glitch in the matrix...
