If you're thinking everything mustn't go, think again.

Updated 12:30AM March 2. North Korean Gold Medalist Lee Seung-Hwi is hella pissed that some of this stuff isn't selling so he's making some deals for y'all. Look for his picture on the stuff that isn't sold. You might have to do some Ctrl-R on this page to get the new pictures to load.

HEY JOU. I am having a party 8PM SATURDAY MARCH 2 to celebrate selling most of my stuff. Plus I wanna see what everyone looks like in case they are hot. Go here for the Evite.

PARTY AT 3125 TURK #14. Come at 8pm and start drinking and meet me and my friends before everything gets crazy. Plus I have an ENTIRE ROOM FULL OF MERCHANDISE WHICH HAS NOT YET BEEN OFFERED OR PICTURED. Imagine: a rice cooker, a handmade blowdart gun from Bali, an ironing board, the game of Life, a volleyball, my grandpa's 50 year old electric fan, and some other stuff. Come over first and buy.

AT 9 PM WE WILL START WATCHING SCARFACE ON MY AS OF YET UNSOLD $20 TV. After it's done and everyone is drunk we will go somewhere rad. Hopefully some people that bought some of my stuff will make appearances.

Axis of Evil posterboy Lee Seung-Hwi was pleased as punch to take a gold medal home to North Korea in 1996. The editors of Cho-sun magazine saw it fit to put him on the cover of their November 1996 "Triumphant Heroes Who Honor The Juche Ideal By Laying Waste To All Enemy Capitalist Competitors In International Sporting Exhibitions" issue. But does he have a set of plates featuring an attractive and mouth-watering Apple pattern? He'd certainly trade all the gold medals in the world for a chance to dine with you on your new set of Apple Plates after you bring them home with you. This set features 5 sets of matching large, medium, and small plates, as well as 5 eye-catching coffee mugs for that post-dinner cup of Southern Comfort. Don't think of it as 5 sets though... think of it as 4 sets plus a bonus set for a Greek wedding or something. Plus you're getting a mixing bowl, six matching short glasses, five matching tall glasses, and two Minnesota Timberwolves beer glasses for your hard-earned American dollar. Celebrate jingoism and democracy for only $20..

Sad Eagle says "Do you value your freedom or not? BUY THESE PLATES, MANG."



Last and least is Single Wooden Chair, a close cousin to Duo of Wooden Chairs with a bit of a twist. Here's a little quiz. What do the following things all have in common?
- The Declaration of Independence
- Norman Rockwell's "The Four Freedoms"
- The original American flag
- The lyrics to The Star Spangled Banner

I'll tell you what: they were all created by Americans who were sitting in chairs. Chairs probably a lot like this one. Take a seat... and work on your own American masterpiece... for only $5.

Sad Eagle says "Sit down and figure all this crajy stuff out mang."



Confused or bored? This attractive appliance will teach you what to think and, more importantly, what to buy. Patented RCA technology beams glorious images of destruction, terror, and jingoistic pride directly to your eyeballs by means of a 21-inch screen. Bonus: no pop-under ads for 888.com or the X10 spy cam! The Television is cable-ready and works great if you can plug it into an AT&T cable box, because the remote is missing, and if you want to turn the power on and off on the TV itself, you'll need to use a pen or paperclip, because the power button is missing. Works well though. Never stop rocking for $20 or best offer.

Sad Eagle says "Jou can use dis television to watch CNN, mang."



Eating. Simply everyone seems to be doing it these days. From Hollywood to Schenectady, Americans everywhere seem to be participating in the latest sensation to sweep the nation. Hot dogs... steak and potatoes... even lo mai gai and cha siu bao are being processed into life-giving energy deep inside the stomachs of your countrymen right this very instant. And right there, standing by our side, ensuring that we receive the sustenance to maintain our status as the sole world superpower? Silverware, that's who. All your favorites are here: forks, spoons, ladle, wooden mixing spoon, pointy non-serrated knives, butter knives, black spatula, and Big Poppa Fork is somewhere in there too. And the massive serrated bread knife will definitely help you win kitchen arguments. Oh it IS easy being green, Kermit, especially for only $20..

Sad Eagle says "Just because jou are only eating the Krispy Kremes and Taco Bell don't mean you have to eat with your hands like someone off the banana boat, mang."



Do not resist Ikea. Ikea products are friends of the American people. They only wish to help you, capitalist compatriot. Besides, when your new neighbors and friends come over to visit, they'll say "Hey, did you get that at Ikea?" and you'll say "Yeah, it's like... made of Japanese rice paper or something," and they'll say "Cool... do you watch anime at all?" and then you've got a friend for LIFE. Donate to the Church of Latter-Day Scandinavian Mass-Produced Cheap Furnishings for only $10 or best offer.

Sad Eagle says "Get this for those clandestine Neighborhood Watch meetings late at night, mang."



WHERE, WHERE are you going to put your cologne bottles and makeup? You don't want them touching the top of your new White Dresser, that's for sure. But you want something that says genuine-1960s-faux-1940s-faux-wood. That's why you buy the top tray. You also want a big silvery fish that you can use for a candy dish or something. For $5 total, you figure it out.

Sad Eagle says "I like the fish mang."



WHEEEE. Twenty feet of tiny lights which can be used to celebrate Christmas, Kwanzaa, or your first night out of sexile in six months. "Wow, your dorm room is so cool... nice The Little Prince poster, I LOOOOOVE that book. So is your roommate gone for the weekend or something?" Hook it up for only $2 or best offer.

Sad Eagle says "Get this for the drunken afterparty for the clandestine Neighborhood Watch meetings late at night, mang."



Cups. Drink out of them. $2..

Sad Eagle says "My ears are ringing with the tortured cries of our country's forefathers because jou refuse to buy these cups, mang. STOP THEIR PAIN, MANG, PLEASE."



7:30. 7:39. 7:48. 7:57. Yeah, 7:57 will work. I love 7:57, and you will too, after you hit the snooze button a million times to avoid hearing that terrible Matchbox 20 "And I think you're so mean..." song on KOIT. But 7:57 rolls around, Careless Whisper is rocking the airwaves, and you're finally ready to jolt out of bed and take a three minute shower before racing down to catch the bus.

Sad Eagle says "Wake up, mang!"
