Any idea what Everyday Music gives per CD when selling them back?
I know that, generally, Powell's gives $0.75 - $1.00 per used mass-market paperback (or about 1/3 of what they would sell it for) in cash (more if you take it in trade, of course). But I want to keep my books for now.
I do have a bunch of CDs that have all been ripped to hard drive and a backup made, and I could use the cash dollars. So what can I expect for my shitty CD collection?
I can't draw AT ALL...yet I love to doodle and always wish I had the ability to draw things that sort of looked like what I intended. I mean, I was once asked to draw a frog by a 4 year old who wanted to know why I drew a piece of toast with arms and legs instead. I have no desire to become an artist or anything, but I'm considering taking some basic beginner drawing classes.
My question is for those that are also lacking in drawing skills...have you ever taken classes and did it actually help you improve? Were you surprised by anything you learned?
ETA: Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain has been ordered. Thanks for the suggestions. I remember my grandfather had that book and always encouraged me to try it, but being an ass and teenager, I totally didn't.
hey guys i just farted. very portland related.
The other night, I was talking to my mom, and she said they had really good looking Oregon grown blueberries in the stores. I went down to the store the next day to look for some berries. There were some nice looking Oregon grown blackberries, but the only blueberries I saw were from Florida! Why would they have Oregon grown blueberries in California, but not in Oregon?
Hint: the answer is not "Michael's"
Has anyone seen glazed ceramic strawberry pots for sale around town that aren't ridiculously over-priced?
Thus far I've only found the smaller, plain ceramic ones at Freds for around $30 (which I'll get if I have to but was hoping for glazed and a little larger).
The one that I did love at Al's Garden Center is perfect but at $68, too pricey for my budget.
I don't mind second-hand either (I'm keeping an eye on Craigslist too) as long as they aren't cracked and chipped.
Thanks in advance.
P.s. If anyone's selling a decent 2nd hand wheelbarrow too, pls send me a pm.
p.p.s. I realize this isn't craiglist but I figured my DP peeps often come thru. :o)
Having been just been notified the family I work for can no longer afford to have a nanny, and being given 5 weeks left to work, I posted an ad on Craigslist for my services. I had a reply from a woman who would like for me to do a nanny share for them. It would be 4 children: 3,4,6 and 7. I currently get $12 for a 3 and 5 year old. Does anyone have any experience for a nanny share with 4 kids in the area? What's an acceptable rate to ask for? Any tips, or advice? Thanks in advance!
Does anyone have a TI-89, Stats Editor, and the necessary cable to download it to my calculator? I'm needing it for my stats class and would happily exchange a beer or coffee for it.
Our street could really use a stop sign. People speed like crazy down our block in our residential 'hood and that shit is getting really old. Anyone have ideas or experience about who to talk to or how to go about getting a stop sign added to a nearby intersection?
EDIT: thanks for the infos gang :)
To the guy at Madison's bar and grill tonight who was honest and kind enough to chase after my dad and I and ask if it was my phone that was left at the table, thank you so much! I really don't know many people who could find an iPhone and return it, that restores a little faith in my love of Portland! Even if the waitresses and bartender- well, everyone who works there! Even though they know me and would have held onto it for me or called me at home to tell me I left it there, I think it fucking rocks that you went the extra mile to chase me down to return it. For that, I hope like hell that karma treats you right for a good long time! You, sir, are my hero :D
