I was actually hoping to find my photo of the Calder-esque mobile that a friend of mine made out of AOL install CDs circa 1999, but this was the closest I could get.

Not sure how I stumbled across it but the other day on eBay I saw someone had individually listed numerous AOL install CDs from throughout the years. No I did not check Sold Listings to see if anyone ever has actually bought one.

That's the best Dadaist performance art project ever.

For storage I bought a few of the cases we had at the record store I managed and went from this.



to this






Made me happy until I filled them up. But the WAF on the cases in the living room is low.

If I were getting rid of them I'd do what we did at the CD store and sign up for an Amazon seller account and get a postage meter. I know there are a few that are relatively hard to get that I'd be getting a few bucks for. You just have to keep up on it to maintain your seller rating and make sure that what goes out is in good shape.

Of course, it also helped that we had a POS system that matched up our inventory with Amazon's, but you could get a barcode scanner for $30 and do that at the house if you really wanted to be slick about it.
Pockets full of nickels and nothing left to eat, and I'm stuck behind a semi on Soniat Street.

I hate it when people tell me its all good. it's not all good.
it's not suppose to be all good. it's suppose to be bad sometimes so you can enjoy the good parts."

If you have a local college radio station, they'd probably love to get them.  Or the local library.  Or the school system (depending on content).

You can dispose of any commercially released CDs with bar codes (not burned shows) at Ipodmeister. They pay for Fed Ex shipping and give back either gizmos or cash. They'll also burn mp3 copies of CDs if there's something you're not sure you want to part with. No idea what their business model is but hey...
