Thanks Mike, I guess I'll get that book anyway sooner or later, still they should do a reissue of it. I'm simply not paying ninety friggin bucks for it :shocking:

I really want to find Loser, but there are no copies ANYWHERE around here for less than 200 bucks. I've looked online at every library in 3 counties of New York - which, surprisingly, have a lot of Mudhoney, TAD, Melvins, and other Grunge CDs as well as Hype! and Grunge is dead - but I have not found it anywhere.

When I read your posts I feel like I live in another world. In my country they will never bring any of those books. The only ones I've seen in stores are three Nirvana related books, all of them really expensive and one book about Cobain, which was translated, a very good book indeed. But nothing else - no Grunge is Dead, nothing. And this is the first time I ever hear about "Loser", can't find it even on ebay :/

But Loser really is extremely hard to get by. It costs a fortune even in Germany which is why I'm not getting it right now.

Ninety is way too much for a single book. If I pay that much it must have a Mark Arm signature on it or something :lol:

I know I mentioned maybe two days ago I think, but I got Scott Weiland's Memoir Not Dead and Not for Sale. I must say it's been a pretty damn good read. :)

Loser goes for like $14 on Amazon:

And eBay has it for $20 which is the normal price for a regular book, maybe 5 bucks cheaper than an ordinary book:

LOSER CAME TODAY!!! It's also huge, I thought it'd be the size of Grunge is Dead or something. Screaming Life and 1989: Bob Dylan Didn't Have This To Sing About Also came. Yaaaaaaaaay.
