tradgedy as dogs eat CRASHDIET mega rarity

over the past few months I've been away for work slaving 10-12 hr days, 7 days week.

As a bit of a reward for myself i splashed out $US100 on an original 7" pressing of crashdiet's riot in everyone. It was to be the jewel in my glam-sleaze collection.

 

Last night i get home hoping to find it in the mail box. Not there... maybe it's still coming.

 

Go out the back to say hello to my 2 dogs and see a mass of chewed cardboard in their beds. Wondering what it was, but not having a closer inspection I walked straight past.

 

It was then that I began to find bits and pieces of a record sleeve that i began to piece together and before long realising it was my priceless crashdiet record!!! Further over I found the vinyl complete with teeth marks, chewed up and scracthed to buggery.

 

f**k! f**k! f**k! f**k! f**k! f**k! f**k! f**k!

 

Anybody want 2 dogs?

 

Turns out my mum who came to feed the dogs 2 days earlier had collected my mail from the mailbox and instead of putting it in the lockable box on the back table (as instructed), she had just left the package sitting by itself on the table... in full view of 2 destructive dogs.

 

A part of glam-sleaze history chewed to pieces and probably never to be seen again.

 

Pictures coming soon!!!!

 

Footnote to the story....

My mum has promised to buy me another copy if I can ever find one. So if anyone knows where I may be able to get one of these, or has one they are willing to part with, please let me know.

That sucks. I had a first edition of "Empire Falls" in hardcover that I put on eBay and had an ending bid of $65.00. On the day I received the check for payment, I found the book's first few pages chewed up. The book was mint before that. I had to email the guy and then rip up the check. That hurt.

Hahahaha! I really feel sorry for you .... but you've gotta laugh, it's better than crying...which I guess you must have been tempted to do. When my little guy was around 2 yo I left a CD booklet out that I was reading while I nipped to the kitchen to make a brew, I returned to find it being chewed and covered in baby spit hahaha....oh well that taught me to put stuff out of reach.

To me it wasn't the $100 dollars down the drain, but the fact that I'm probably highly unlikely to find another one of them for sale. The dogs could have eaten anything else in the yard and it could have been replaced, but I don't think i can replace this one.

 

I was quite annoyed but the anger didn't linger cos I just thought there was nothing I could do and breaking something else in anger would ahve just left left me with additional repair bill$.

 

I've kept the chewed up bits'n'pieces as a momento, and if I ever need to get angry I just need to pull it out.

 

It's quite amazing that in my years of collecting the only things that have really happened to me (aprat from being f**** up the arse by Lon) are this recording being eaten and another bon jovi record being snapped in half. The bon jovi record was just as valuable. Why is it always the expensive items that this sota stuff happens too?!!?!?

 

Hmmm, i never thought of the dogs eating the crash-DIET record as being ironic. If i wasn't still sulking I'd probably laugh.

Oh Lindsay you poor bastard... sorry to hear that mate. It is tragic, but as others have pointed out I guess it's kinda funny. In a horrifying way. I can fully imagine my puppy doing that for sure if given the opportunity.

Wow, that sucks man! At least your Mom is gonna fit the bill for another copy though - that's nice. Hope you find another soon. I see this thread is over a year old - still no luck huh?

Nah, won't make my mum pay for another one. But hopefully I've got another one in the piepline as I type.

Well, I've just paid for one anyway, but until i have it in my hands the saga will not be compelte.
