I'm only willing to put £25 max on it, so I'm missing out. I cannot justify £31! I'm sure it will be winnable at some point.

The price of OLW is sure tough to swallow. But my tolerance for spending will go up the longer it's been since my initial spree... so maybe I will get it one day... as long as BSI is happy with the 5-6 copies he assumedly now has...


I have no idea why BSI is stockpiling OLW? I thought he was just after the early stuff. Unless I catch a crafty Buy It Now, I can't see me getting that.
Hello little doggy,
My, you are a nice dog,
What did you just say then?
You could do some tricks! Oh, good, then will you show me?
My word that's a good one!
Would you like a cigarette?
No you can't, they're bad for you!

I assume no one wants to elaborate on that out of courtesy to the author, who is on this forum, as it would be akin to sharing mp3s off a disc still available for commercial purchase.

I want to know badly enough, that I bought the book (I am sure I will find more chapters interesting than just that one)

Yeah I know he's on here, just wanted a rough idea ....didnt want any transcripts or anything :)

You can let me know when you have read it :) I dont think I will read it to be honest but im sure it will be a great read.

There's an itunes screenshot showing that I have indeed purchased OceanLandWorld legally. It's nice to finally contribute to the band for a change.

I haven't 100% closed the door on getting the CD, but that could be a long time away, so this will do for now.

I love it, it's really the closest thing to a Cardiacs album.

So if anyone would like to put their CD, front insert and rear insert on a scanner, hit "scan" and then email to me, I'd appreciate it for life. I know I can just burn these tracks to a CD, but without proper covers I wouldn't be able to see it as much more than the red headed stepchild of my CD collection.

I am still holding out hope on getting the Garage Concerts through a friend, but as soon as I know that's not possible, I hope to do the same thing.

the museum is almost teasing me with all the fairly nice quality scans of rear inserts and CDs that it has... for the rare discs I already own, like Sea Nymphs. But for the Garage Concerts and OLW... just a small pic of the front cover :x

The CD definitely works since I am just burning a lightscribe image.

the covers will be a tad grainy when blown up. Plus I imagine there is more than just the one page to the front insert, right?

Yeah, it would be great if you could scan that. Still, thanks for finding these. I thought I had looked everywhere, but google images apparently can't capture everything. :D

Here it is...

I wasn't sure how to scan it "actual size" so it's 300dpi. I suppose it's better too big than too small. :)

where did you see this? I don't see it on ebay.

He told me before his upper limit is 160.

I am sure he would go higher if he had to in order to beat someone else out. He is a successful businessman.

I wouldn't have paid that... well, maybe I would, if I didn't have my "sorta real" version already.
