Wretched Excess: A Walk Through What's Left of MP3.com

First, put on The Beatles' "Revolution", and then click this link and walk through the 130 images of the video games . . . You say you wanna revolution . . . absurd couches, foosball games, expensive wall decorations, . . . well, you know . . . studio equipment, mixing boards, 100s of Herman Miller Aeron chairs, . . . we all wanna change the world . . . fancy desks, more couches, more fancy designer chairs, . . . You say you got a real solution . . . light fixtures, dead Macintoshes, dead PCs, . . . Well, you know . . . notebooks, racks and racks of servers and EMC storage arrays, . . . We'd all love to see the plan . . . fax machines, copiers, monitors, video projectors. video cameras, washing machines and dryers, exercise equipment, ping-pong tables, pool tables, shoe autographed by Master P, and more equipment. . . . But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Michael . . . you ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow . . .

It's all being auctioned March 10th and 11th.

Never could figure out what those two things were in the above photograph. I'm sure they cost a lot of money to build. I always suspected they were props from This is Spinal Tap. They belong in the Museum of Excessive Dot-Com Spending. Oh. Wait. This is the Museum of Dot-Com Spending.

. . . Don't you know it's gonna be alright . . . all right . . . all right . . . all right . . . all right . . .

The props in the last picture were from the Club MP3 tour.

The two things in the bottom picture could be Daleks. Maybe Davros is to blame for all of the former MP3.com's problems?
