Whitney Houston's old music gear up for sale (don't all rush)

Greg writes to point me in the direction of Whitney Houston's entire stage setup, being auctioned in New Jersey next Monday, presumably as a result of her crack-related tax complications because she hasn't paid the storage bills. There are many low-rent delights, including loads and loads of old Roland controller keyboards, a nice-looking flighcased Hammond, numerous Bobby Brown music awards (many for cassette tape sales). Elsewhere in the catalogue you may find: "1 Aroma Steam Personal Sauna, in two flight cases", "'Whitney's Throne' Chair", a Lucite Grand Piano with no legs, a Sharp microwave in a flight case, and really a lot of old Akai samplers.

say no to crack!
Is she desperate enough that I have a chance now?
yo de link don't be working yo
OOOh, a JD800!!!

But don't anyone think about taking that forklift. Shits be mine!
The Acrylic Piano is sweet.
Cocaine is a Hell Of a Drug!
My god, there's a unicorn-shaped crack pipe in a flight case.
If only that gear came with crackhead prices...

$3.50 for a V-Drum kit, $5 for a B3, $.50 for a roland midi key, and every purchase of $5 or more comes with a free bj from Whitney... holla!

I have never much cared for Whitney Houston or Bobby Brown's music, but seeing this makes me sad.

Sure, you can sell off beat-up old samplers and controllers all you want, but seeing music awards and other personal belongings in the lot sends a bit of a shiver up my spine.

Maybe if they had made music that stimulates the imagination rather than by-the-numbers pop, they wouldn't have needed to get high using drugs.
people can be really nasty..

i never liked whitney's music, but i try to remember that this is a living person we are watching.

few see that there's not a hell of a lot of funny aspects about a person sending herself to her own grave. slowly.

ah well, guess there's a reason why the yellow press flourishes.
...i loved her...n i love her...n forever i ll...her music does inspire me...i wish things could be better for her...i wish.. she ll soon get herself together again...
things happen...
n We all need someone to be there for us in our darkest hour...

...Whitney...i m prayin for U...i wont give up on u...u r special...u ve always been special...

DONT GIVE UP...try hard..u can overcome this...
