This morning at work, I found an empty jewel case that once held a copy of the Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack...

...to the person who stole it, I have one thing to say:

Fuck You!

You don't deserve to be a part of our fandom, you worthless piece of shit!

Yes, I once owned a copy of the movie on a bootleg VHS tape years before it was commercially available. I've since purchased it on VHS (at the time I purchased it, it was still "rental" priced...$75.00) and DVD as well as countless posters, t-shirts, trading cards, buttons, comic books, CD soundtracks (we own the original Roxy cast, the movie cast, the "Songs from the Vault", the audience participation CD, international soundtracks, the punk "cover" album, etc). Of course, I also had copies of of numerous of those soundtracks on cassette as well. Not to mention all the Shock Treatment stuff, too. I wouldn't even begin to count how much money I've spent on movie ticket purchases over the years... All were purchased legally.

You, fucktard thief, made me feel ashamed that we aren't raising our kids right in this community that they could be so thoughtless as to steal from someone. If you were going to do this, couldn't you at least have simply burned a copy either from bittorrent or from a library copy (or borrowed it from a friend)? I bet, if you'd asked nicely, Santa might have put one in your stocking this coming holiday. Now, this just drives up our "shrink" in the store, it in the long run will cause us to raise prices and so many other factors that hurt our store and our customers...especially a future customer who might have walked in just to buy that CD.

I hope your Rocky karma comes up and bites you on the ass and you never get to see the movie in a theatre again and have to content yourself with the edited version on basic cable for the rest of your life.

As long as I've been going, I don't think I own the soundtrack on cd (but I have an alibi for when it was stolen so it wasn't me). And I own the $75 copy but it was bought for me for my birthday in 1990 (wow, that means on Tuesday I have had it for 17 years!).


I'm off to go be Frank now. :)

thats just stupid that someone will do that sort of thing. There are plenty of resources to get it instead of stealing...

How are you doing

We're holding up. I've been exhausted between daily bandage changes at the hospital for Paul (but they are slowing down to just every few days at the hospital and probably will be almost done soon) and the fact that the one manager at work dropped out of our store so we only have two key holders (me being one of them)...I worked three straight open to closes last week. Don't look forward to doing THAT any time soon, I'll tell you.

He's getting much better and stronger. We are both, though, looking forward to January and his ability to reverse the surgery.

The one thing keeping us going for the short term is the wedding (we are exchanging our vows on November 17th ( our fifteenth anniversary is November 14th)).


How you doing? I know it's tough when you lose a grandparent (I was raised by mine and lost them in 1990/1995 respectively). It's hard and especially hard to deal with during the holidays (and especially these FIRST holidays), but it softens over the years. I hope that helps to know.
