  1. Abe Vigoda wouldn’t say shite.

  2. point taken

  3. Arguing on the internet isn’t cool anymore?

  4. Personally, I have realized that fighting is counter-intuiative to my goals, therefore I will make every effort to communicate amicably in the hopes that a peaceful solution can be found in any and all disagreements. xoxo – Fish

  5. Marty is so in love with himself. Good for him.

  6. the art and its popularity makes the secondary market, not the other way around.

  7. hmm, i bought this piece, the first time i was able to purchase directly from audrey’s website, and i bought it because i actually really like this pariticular image.. but i do have to admit it won’t feel quite as special b/c of the large edition size…. i’m personally a bit torn on how i feel about flipping… i don’t like that the flippers usually beat me to buying these giclees when they’re first released (i’m practicing getting faster hitting that dang paypal button) but at the same time if it weren’t for the secondary market i wouldn’t own half the pieces i have, plus it does make them a bit more special, knowing they’re in such high demand. but i still like that she did this once, i’m glad it was for mizuame and not memai, as memai is my favorite of the two.. 😛

  8. Flipping is a fact of life. No one likes middlemen, they are insignificant little fucks that add little if any value at all. You can sit around and complain about it but really it isn’t going to cure a thing. It is a way for a bunch of folks to turn a very inefficient profit. If they spent as much time and effort doing nearly anything else they could make more money.

    Really, the artist should charge significantly more and take more of that money home. But hey this is world that we live in.

  9. So much hate towards flippers. I’m being generous and let’s say flippers represent a third of the purchases. Do you really think that the third of the edition going to “true fans” will holistically increase your odds of getting that print? Your odds at getting the print increased from 1% to 1.5%. Yippy do!

    Say you were passed out from the night before or the print was only offered to certain countries and that print you HAD to have. Who do you turn to? Flippers.

    Sure, some could say they’re not deserving of the profits they earn, but they’re not the sole reason you didn’t get the print sleepyhead fat fingers.

    And why the fuck is this rant on Mizaume, the unlimited limited?
