Default Which of you idiots got the gold obelisk in EP1?

According to Billy, the Teargarden Theme is different on those 99 vinyls.

I'm not sure but if it was actual plated gold around a metal core wouldn't it be magnetic? then you could just run a magnet over the top see if anything picks up before you buy it

Jesus Christ this reminds me of when I was a kid and we found those shitty plastic things in our cereal boxes. Gold obelisk wtf relevance is that to anything? Stick it on your mantelpiece and look like a cunt.

Yes I'm jealous.

He never mentions the gold obelisk though. I wonder how we can tell if the 7" is different. Are some on the light blu vinyl and some on another color?

Why go through all that trouble just use a dowsing rod. It sure to head straight for all that gold pyramid power.

I ordered it a few weeks ago, and when it came in the mail, the box had broken in shipping. The dude I bought it from shipped over another one, so I got to have two in hand at once. The obelisks were the same color, but the vinyl was slightly different - an aqua blue vs a darker shade of sky blue.

So, I got to check out 2/10,000 of them - and no dice. Overheard Billy talking to Monte about this during the SLC soundcheck on Friday, and he said that the 99 were all sent to "indie" record stores - and they have reason to believe that most of them are still out there, based on sales figures from those stores.

So -- if you haven't bought one yet and plan on it, buy indie for your chance of getting the magic HAND CARVED GOLD OBELISK. Ridiculous. My favorite part of the obelisk is showing it to non-SP fans and watching their befuddled reactions.

Too bad all the indies closed up by me. And too bad BiCo is probably full of shit.
