The L Word Fire Sale

In keeping with the "going out of business" vibe that has swept across the world, the Vancouver production facility where The L Word was shot is auctioning off the entire set, which includes furniture, art work and clothes.

From the auctioneers' website

:

After six seasons of shooting this hugely popularTV series, the production of The L Word has been stopped and all contents of this over 30,000 square foot facility will be sold with no minimum price.

Is it just me or does something about this remind you of the rich old lady who dies without a will and her estate gets sold off in a fire sale? Well, if you want to get in on the action, I mean auction, you need to be in Vancouver (or send a representative). The preview is Friday, March 6, Noon to 6 p.m., and the actual sale is Saturday, March 7, 10 a.m. If any one happens to go, I'm looking for a nice office chair, perhaps the one Bette used to sit on as Dean at CU.

Bette's wardrobe anyone?

If its a rack of Shane stuff, it may go high. There are a lot of us weirdos out here. You don't suppose that the shirt, dress and tennies would go in the same lot? We could split it.

Oh! What about the 50's dad outfits? We could send Rachel one of the button downs as a gift and then watch for it on her show. Hm... her shoulders may too broad.

You do know that scent is the most powerful memory booster, right?

So this explains why Jenny

So this explains why Jenny got away with turning Shane's bedroom into an office!

Did Jenny really sell Alice's story for $million? Or is she just using that as a cover story for the fact that she made a killing selling Shane's bed to her crazy suitors at a separate auction?

Laughing out loud

PS: You don't suppose they'll let go of that little white dress? Hightops anyone?

I know that's why I heart

I know that's why I heart you. You remind me of something I read online a while back about JB auctioning off the red shirt she wore when she kissed LuH in 504. Apparently to raise more money she jokingly rubbed the shirt all over her body including her crotch. My first thought was "Eww...I don't think I'd want something that someone rubbed down there." lol Smile

most times i'm only on the net to play with the drupal space
but i do pop in here now and then, just don't post/comment etc.
lol this is the longest comment i made for some time now.

don't mean that i don't think of you or the others
because that i do
but as far as i can tell, everyone is doing great without me
and im glad about that.
so there is really not much need for me to post and comment etc. i just sit in the (rounded) corner and observe.

in NYC, there are used furniture shops that I know advertise rentals for photo shoots, commercials, movies etc..

Nice idea, but really, does anyone want a bidet that Jenny theorectalliy used? How about acknowledge that the show was over the top when it came to things and after you watch "The Story of Stuff" flood them with suggestions that household appliances be DONATED to help people with crumbling commodes and kitchens who cannot afford it.
