    i bought a $500 vintage MoogRogue synthesizer. Works beautifully, but I was nervous some jag off would take my money and run.

    a DirecTV RCA DRD420RE Receiver back in 2002, shipped to Atlantic Canada - they were quite sought after back in the H-Card testing days. Got a few years of service out of it. when I picked it up at the post office, the guy asked me "What did you order?" - I should have told him to fuck off and none of your business, but I just said "some computer equipment". I miss those days - but the stuff you can receive these days online with an HTPC and/or Android box (with Kodi, etc.) is pretty spectacular. I'm actually streaming 9 Network live from Perth, Australia as I type this. Good times.

    Bought a used SUV for about $10K sight unseen from someone in another state. Paid $500 to have it shipped to my driveway. Was a good vehicle until it got wrecked. It crumpled well from a head-on accident and saved the life of my wife and two of my kids.

    Paid $12,000 for something close to this. Was local so I was able to see it and towing was a few miles.

    Put $1000 into it and sold it 2 weeks later for $18,000. Guy didn't even try to talk me down, so now I think I got screwed. O we;; $7g in 2 weeks is fine.

    I don't have any direct URLs - sorry. I'm using a new Kodi addon called "MR Netowrk TV" with tons of international TV links. Right now the 9 network from Perth is showing their version of the Saturday "Today" show (it's morning there apparently LOL). If you're not familiar with Kodi, there are plenty of YouTube tutorial videos out there if you are interested - well worth the effort IMHO.

    Can't say I've ever bought anything super expensive or odd......I did buy an official Sirius/ Stern Show t-shirt when he first moved in 2006. The shirt cost me $35.

    Last thing I bought was a 3 3/4" Han Solo figure from The Force Awakens. Paid $14.95 for it, which I felt was reasonable since I was wasting money and gas trying to find it in a store

    I just bought a Jail Broken Firestick with Kodi 16 pre-loaded, I'm still waiting for it to show up. :mad:

    Is Kodi as good as I hear it is?

    I bought a 1950's era deli meat slicer. Sharp as a motherfucker. It's made out of cast iron and built to last into the next century. I bought it for $100. :)
