In Toronto Life:Text: ". GREW UP IN SCARBOROUGH and I've been living in rooming housessince I was about 20. I don't invite friends here-it's a pretty smallplace. For money, I buy people's old record collections and then sellthem on eBay. I'm passionate about vinyl, especially older records,from the '60S and '70S. I have about 1,000 LPs in a storage lockerat College and Spadina, and I use a shopping cart to transportthem. Some of the rooming houses downtown are really dirty andnoisy-people stay up all night partying. They're also more expensive.I like this area because it's quiet. Also, there's a beer store justdown the street:'

    He used to come into the store I worked at to sell. Not exactly a shopping cart - more like a dolly with a box strapped to it.

    Of all the members of our community, I would say those who live with their parents and wax rhapsodic on romantic evenings spent sharing a drink with a favored vinyl platter have travelled furthest down the slippery slop to becoming this guy.

    Steve is a good guy. Used to hit his storage unit back in the early 90's. Can anyone says 4 copies of INVADERS OG for $1 each?

    i think canada is stupid for this. they should just have only one -- the alcohol store -- no need for lcbo + beer stores.

    He's obviously since upgraded. I like the way his arms are posed -- he's got this kind of laissez-faire attitude that says "yeah, I do ebay, sleep, jerk off -- hell, drink beer, too -- all in the same room, so what the fuck?"

    I'm afraid I didn't make it up. It's from the Trailer Park Boys.
    But I believe in it and use it whenever I can.
