Every time I see a yard sale I always tell myself that I’m going to stop by and check them out. Mostly because I think to myself there’s a slight chance they’ll have some retro video games and maybe find a copy of Wild Guns for five bucks (it’s been sold for as high as $400 on eBay.) This is what I tell myself. In reality I take a look at the people who are running said tag sale, they look like Bob from Twin Peaks and I never speak of that moment ever again, well until now.
Strangely enough, even as a fan of Doug Stanhope, I’d have the same reaction to him. Seeing some old man, chain smoking, drinking plastic bottle vodka in his front lawn with a bunch of unwanted stuff, is the thing of nightmares. Luckily for me, I don’t have to go to Doug Stanhope’s house to buy some of his crap, I can do it over the internet, thank you Al Gore. While I can’t obtain that elusive copy of Wild Guns, I can get some ugly ill fitting suits and who doesn’t need more of those?
