The $10,000 T-Shirt

Rare concert t-shirts have always been fought for, but not for this much. A Led Zeppelin t-shirt recently sold on eBay on for $10,000. The precious tee was produced in 1979 and served as an unconventional backstage pass for a Zeppelin show at the Knebworth House.

A Heavyhearted Goodbye

My dearest,

You were hiding behind that rack of Hawaiian shirts; I wouldn’t have even noticed you if I hadn’t been digging for something to wear to the Spring Fling. As I was debating which floral pattern best suited my needs, I looked up and saw you.  I was 15.
