Okay this one's crazy - not just for the fact for what I now have on the trading block, but for the way it happened. I just got a phone call about this. I said yes on the spot.
The person who lives in the other half of Jody Gnant's duplex in Phoenix is named Leslie. Leslie pays rent on her half of the duplex. Leslie had an idea on how to not pay rent for one year in her duplex. Leslie works at Alice Cooper's restaurant in Phoenix, Alice Cooper'stown. Leslie didn’t have anything to trade but had a valuable resource - her boss! She asked Alice Cooper if he would help her get free rent for one year. She told him her idea. Alice Cooper listened. Alice Cooper was honored to help out one of his staff in such an awesome way, and jumped at the chance.
And that's how it played out. Alice Cooper agreed to spend an afternoon with a fan so that Leslie can get one year of free rent. Yes, as far as Leslie and I are concerned, Alice Cooper is pretty much the coolest living legend/restaurant owner of all time.
“one afternoon with Alice Cooper” includes:
-one afternoon with Alice Cooper.
One of a variety of activities is possible: golfing, songwriting, jamming, hanging out, dining, Alice's courtesy laughs at your clever "We're not worthy's" ... the sky's the limit. Maybe he'll even invite you to hang out with him on his radio show in Phoenix or chill backstage at a show....it really depends on whether you meet up with Alice in Phoenix or meet him on one of his days off while he's on the road for his upcoming tour!
So that's how it is: Leslie now has one year of free rent in her duplex (well, actually, she has to move to the other half of the duplex - I really think we should hold her to it.), and I now have one afternoon with Alice Cooper. Now I'm a huge Alice Cooper fan, and would love nothing more than spend an afternoon boring him silly with my favorite Milwaukee-related lines from Wayne's World, but I pledged to keep making trades until I get up to a house. And "one afternoon with Alice Cooper" isn't a house, so I've gotta make a trade!
THE PROMO "EVENING" WITH ALICE COOPER:
Yeah, I can't believe it either.
Big thanks to the combined force of a packed Fargo house and Alice Cooper for making one red paperclip rock harder than I'm sure any of us ever imagined. Tonight was insane. A balloon was filled with blood. It exploded all over the crowd. I "never saw it coming." I then got hosed off stage by a giant stream of blood. The giant red paperclip got ripped to shreds by the crowd. 20/20 from ABC caught the whole thing on tape. I then autographed pieces of giant red paperclip. None of this has ever happened before. To me at least.
Thanks Alice. You rock.
Safe to say I won't ever wash that shirt.
What could I have possibly
