(2) An excited utterance to proclaim on a music-obsessed web message board such as TermBo that you have already purchased a very recently announced new record, cassette, or other limited-availability merchandise item. This may be perceived by the poster to earn cred points especially if they reply "paypal'd!" within mere minutes of the original announcement being posted by the merchandiser.

I am now taking limited pre-orders for the new one-sided 12-inch EP by River of Electrocuted Slugs, featuring three original songs and their absolutely bonkers cover of "Chromosome Damage" by Chrome. Described by hot-shit bloggers as "the dystopic-dance/synthpunk answer to Electric Eels, or like a Beefheart-damaged Nervous Gender." Limited to 400, the first 100 orders will be on white/green splatter vinyl with an etching on side blank. No multiple orders, please. $13 ppd in USA...paypal funds to bluntsleazy (AT) xxxxx (DOT) com. International orders and distros, get in touch at same address.

Post A: "Halfway across the country on tour, my balls were itching so bad, but then it just sorta stopped, but then I smelled these gnarly fumes the next time I sat for a ruthless duke, and I was like...whoa...WTF is this filmy cocoon around my balls? It looked and felt just like Vic's Vapo-Rub! Some kinda white/gray viscous sebaceous secretion. But whatever, man...I was just glad that the pain of that itching was over. So as I sit here typing this to you now, I'm thinking of scraping this off and saving it for later.
Post B: "This sounds like the answer to my needs last time Drippy Kids went on tour. Save some for me, too, please!"
Post C: "Paypal'd!"
