Updated sales figures in the last month and a half:

12 Signed Remain (One sold)
233 Unsigned Remain (One sold here too)

Get them while they're hot, people...
UPDATE UP DATE UPDATE UP DATE UPDATE

signed: 11 available (1 sold since 16 september)
unsigned: 228 available (5 - FIVE! - sold since 16 september)

Exclamation

The last one will be sold at Corgan's death-bed.

I would love to know the economics of this. Either they are going to drop these prices much much lower or they are going to destroy them. But it probably cost them a pretty penny to commission Strawberry (OK, not that much of a pretty penny) do the pressings, artwork, etc. It would be highway robbery is WPC had sold all of them, but what was this, a 500 unsigned copy run? They probably lost money or at least didn't make any on this.

I wish WPC would login and confirm or deny.

I've missed the most mystic item sold at Corgan's shop:

SOLD OUT
HEALING BRAZILIAN CRACKLE QUARTZ + PERIDOT ORGONE PYRAMID (MEDIUM)
$110.00
CLEAR THE HEART/HEALING/FUN/JOY/PURPOSE

Each piece is a handmade, one-of-a-kind creation. Natural variations in the size, crystals and metals may occur. These are high functioning energy art pieces.

LITETHELIGHT PYRAMIDS
Orgone pyramids by LitetheLight are made with the highest intention to amplify and restore the harmonic balance of Mother Earth. These pyramids are powerful tools working in alliance with the Crystal Kingdom, a pre-eminent and unified Light Frequency Force.

Each crystal/mineral is energy specific and may be chosen accordingly. As the resin hardens, it locks the crystal in an amplified state with continuous, unending output of light frequencies. The incorporated metals neutralize the negative frequencies - together these two aspects manifest as a positive energy generator!

Many people have contacted me to share a variety of experiences - each with their own story. Some examples are: sleeping more soundly, vivid and easily accessed meditation, chakra alignment, pain relief when used base to the body, stress reduction in pets, space clearing, etc.

Each piece is a handmade, one-of-a-kind creation. Natural variations in the size, crystals and metals may occur. These are high functioning energy art pieces.

Orgone Capabilities:

Turns Negative Energy into Positive Energy

Mitigates the harmful effects of EMF waves

Strengthens Nature's Own Abilities to Prosper

Testimonial Feedback:

Awakens Psychic Senses

Enhances Meditation

Charges Water

Pain Relief

APPROXIMATE SIZES:

Small: 2"x2"x1.75" High

Medium: 3"x3"x2.75" High

Large: 4.5"x4.5"x4" High

Clear & Charge the pyramids, plates or pendants once a month or as intuition calls, in direct sunlight for 10-30 minutes. The use of tuning forks, sound bells, or classical music also work. Do not leave outside or in the sun for extended periods of time. The resin is somewhat delicate and can yellow or wear in harsh environments.

Lite YOUR Light and Thank YOU,

Michelle Hood

That's a lot of New Age mojo for the price.

I’m sorry. I’m a nice person but I sincerely and honestly believe in my heart that anyone who actually buys this crap (i.e., Siddartha) should tortured and murdered. Emphasis on the torture.

A lot of this type of spirituality is mind over matter, so if a cool looking crystal can act as a placebo for folks, it's not the worst thing in the world.

It's like somebody made up some items in D&D, gave them attributes and such, and then made a replica but forgot that it's only pretend.

Due to popular demand, we'll be getting a classic arrangement release of Corgan's Siddhartha soon too...
