During a visit to ebay.com, I came across this monstrosity of a bootleg.
Now calling a CD unbearable isn't a particularly good idea to begin with, but if you do decide to call it this, at least spell the fucking word correctly.
Also, notice how the "g" in smashing would have got in the road of the "s" in pumpkins? The designer of the cover had the solution to that one, just move the "s" over by 10cms and hope no-one notices.
Finally, the text underneath Smashing Pumpkins at the back has been compressed to the point where the text is on top of itself in places.

I've seen some shoddy looking bootlegs in my time, but this takes the piss. Anyone actually buy these?

this has always been one of my favorite boots, and i did buy it :) i also like how they spell D'arcy = "D'arey"

this one is prolly second fav to Drown, my all time superrific fav boot from the old days.

however, i would never be comfortable buying something from someone in Singapore with 0 feedback on ebay, looks like trouble to me. oh well, not my money!

i bought it about 8 or 9 years ago when there was no such thing as internet trading and such, it was the only way to hear my beloved pumpkins rawk out live over and over again in the privacy of my own home. i don't see why anyone would buy it now though. it's just a collectable now i guess. L8'r doodz!
