hey, i know its sad. but.......there were literally a handful of these made. And its the Canadian version so even more rare. So... im loving it. I just sold a load on ebay anyway, old useless PC items, so...I can afford it.

 

It also came with the football crest...so...its worth it ;) haha

Holy shite. $162 US?! That's what it went for, eh?

 

*wonders what a signed copy would go for*

 

Well, it's nice to know if I have trouble paying my bills...

you know what's the best part about living in a major city like toronto.. we have so many used cd and book stores.. i found a store with so many copies of Loser Anthems and with BMS.. i should have bought the Loser Anthems. and sold them on ebay.. BLAST! i hate life.

 

 

gravitydave, im still looking for one of the black cover singles from Beautiful Midnight.. if youre still willing to trade your load me up for any of the other 3.. so i can have a collection of all 4 ;)

when i worked at the used cd store in Moorhead, Minnesota (i got fired from there today :S) this customer came in.......told me that he really liked the matthew good (band) and that he had a copy of Black Market Surgery.

 

he told me that he didn't really like it and that he was going to give it to me...free of charge.

 

didn't really see him after that though....

I have the American version. I got it free from an Atlantic Records "street preacher" whom I knew back in the day. I can't imagine paying $162 US to own it though. O_o Especially since it's basically just a crappy little booklet with cheap staples for a "binding."

What is Black Market Surgery? Never heard of the CD

It's a book by MG (just a compilation of old manifestos from the mgb website) that was released before At Last There Is Nothing Left To Say (another book by MG).

Althought 'At Last There is nothing Left to Say' is a great collection, I always I wanted a printed copy of the collection of menifestos for the webpage. I didnt just wnat to print them out cause, well this didnt see complete to do.

 

An I cant rationalize spending what people have for 'Black MArket Surgery', either version, so I did what I think was the best thing.

 

I collected all the manifestos as they appeared on the website and got it printed into a book. All the manifestos appear with the same text, images and style as they were intended to.

 

Here are a few pictures of how it came out. (I apologize for the blurry pictures. Its 337 pages.
