oh man, it's so depressing how expensive jandek vinyl has become.  
whatever that comes from, eBay is made for that.

'living in a moon so blue,' the title, always reminds of some of the 
lyrics in the song 'jug band blues,' on pink floyd's 'saucerful' record.

anyway, i was always too cavalier with my jandek vinyl.  i just liked 
getting it and then just giving it to friends to, like, spread the word.
