The "Pick-up Thread" ver. SRK


#1

Before I begin, ‘Pick-Up’ = Purchases. Not the pickup you were hoping for? Check out Koop’s Relationship thread.

So, browsing through a thread started on neo-GAF got me thinking of starting up one for SRK. If you want an idea, check out the “April PICK-UP thread”.

This thread will be a bit different from the GAF version. I’m sure some people want an idea of what the typical SRKer purchases. What headphones are those? How is that phone? Where did you get it? Is the sale still on? How much did it cost? These are the questions we all ask and this is the thread to get your answers. Be it consoles, games, books, movies, furniture, clothes etc.

  • Rules
  1. If you’re going to post a majority of clothes and shoes, there are threads for those here so at least try to post pics of other items to warrant their pics.

  2. I’d say lay low on the criticisms but this is SRK so I’m sure it wouldn’t fly anyways. You can expect mods if it gets out of hand.

  3. Don’t worry about posting a single item or 20 items. Though, if you’re going to post many items, it might be best to fit them into a few pics rather than 20 single ones.

4.** Do NOT post the pics, link them**. There are various sites that allow free uploading of pics so use them! Makes the thread easier to read and navigate.*

  1. If someone asks where you got an item, you might as well help out as this is what the threads for. After all, if you bought it, you should know where it came from.

  2. Gifts also count as ‘purchases’. Steam, PSN and XBL purchases are considered purchases.

  3. There are piracy rules here, so be sure to follow them. I don’t care about your hacked PS3, your torrent albums or your torrented comics and I doubt anyone else does.

*I’m willing to change Rule 3 if people want to see pics directly in the thread like the various tech talk threads have.
GO!

I recently picked up a pack of Marlboro lights…

and a lighter by Bic…

My lighter is actually yellow so that is not an accurate picture.

From there I picked up a meatball marinara from subway…

Was about 13 bucks altogether.

Does the purchase have to be recent or can we post past purchases? My greatest purchase was in 1998, i bought my asian wife…


#4

Let’s try to keep it recent. It’s meant to be an ongoing thing. Anything within the last month or two is alright though.

Asian wife was a purchase? :lol:


#5

This weekend up till today, these were the purchases I got that were the most memorable:

Saturday I went to Guitar Center to get these items:

Hardware for my guitar amp jack:

I couldn’t get just the missing nut unless I ordered from musiciansfriend, and I’ve been putting this off for quite sometime, so I got the whole kit, still not too bad for the price.

I also been meaning to get a wah pedal. So I also purchased a Dunlop Crybaby:

I also got a short “snake” cable to connect the pedal to my big muff fx pedal.

Sunday I went snowboarding for my last time of this season at Winter Park:

I’m too lazy to take a picture of my lift ticket. Though just like the picture, it was cloudy and crappy out. In the beginning, there were breaks of sunshine, but the crappy snow/rain mixture and a 20 degree temp drop from the base of the mountain to the top made my last day riding for the season similar to the end of the 2008-2009 ski season in Steamboat Springs Colorado. And on top of all that, the guys that went snowboarding with me, well they either sucked or could not keep up to my style of riding which is a lot of groomers to dipping inside and out of the tree lines, and terrain parks. So the last 2 hours I rode by myself(like usual) and it somewhat made up for it. Hoping next season will be a little bit better then this one.

This morning, because I was so tired that I skipped on dinner and went straight to my bed, I went to McDonalds and ordered these meals:


The burrito meal I got with coffee but the egg mcmuffin meal, I got with orange juice. I slammed the orange juice down before finishing up the mcmuffin meal, and then proceeded to the coffee with one sugar, one cream. I also received a free egg mcmuffin but I was too full to eat it, so I went back to my apartment and gave it to my room mate.

I bought a Rockstar Low Carb edition. I over paid though because that shit was fucking 2.50. It was worth it though because that is how I get down.

I’m pretty sure I’m getting trolled here. Do you really have Point Blank 2 at home? How the hell did you afford buying Sports Shooting USA?

You are either fucking with me or you have to invite me over because I mothertrucking love Sports Shooting USA.

You just got to find the deals, i over spent on my Point Blank machine, i think spent almost $1000 w/ shipping…I also bought extra guns & bought the original Point Blank PCB too. I probably spent $1300 total. As for Sport Shooting USA i only spent $100 on the cartridge, if you want to be able to play it, you would need to buy the 2 guns, the pcb, wire harness, motherboard, & a cabinet for it. You can probably pick them up around $700+ shipping…

As for my asian wife she is a Pharmacist now but did some lingerie modeling when she was younger…
