The lives of antique booksellers in California are about to get a little harder if a state law that’s just been passed takes effect next year.
The law in question goes by the name “AB-1570 Collectibles: sale of autographed memorabilia,” and governs the sales of any autographed items. The law supersedes existing California law, which had previously only been directed at sports memorabilia. The law requires that any autographed item sold for more than $5 must include a certificate of authenticity including information about the dealer, where and how the item was signed, and the name and address of any third party from whom it was purchased. The law was undoubtedly aimed at shutting down forgery mills, but it was written so broadly that it will make things a lot harder for anyone dealing in autographed goods.

A friend of mine just alerted me to this suspension.
A few weeks ago (actually, maybe it was a couple months ago) I talked to one of the guys on the CBCS site and he said they were considering changing the name because it was the same as mine. Evidently they weren't aware of "this" site when they created it. It didn't bother me at all, but I can see how it could be confusing. I wonder if they changed the name? But normally wouldn't the old link forward to the new site?

steveinthecity: Btw, the chard was fine. Very light taste, not bitter at all. Had it mixed with spinach and romaine to use as “greens” for salads.

Super Team Up: By-Tor and the Snow Dog is a terrible Rush song. There, I said it.

steveinthecity: They probably have more than one. Did they make any albums after Moving Pictures?

steveinthecity: oh, there was “Roll The Bones”? I honestly cannot recall them right now.

Super Team Up: They did make albums after Moving Pictures because that's when I was old enough to go see them. I remember Fastway opened one of the shows.... Kinda weird choice

Super Team Up: I saw them on Grace Under Pressure and Power Windows

steveinthecity: All those titles ring a bell, now. I heard “Permanent Waves” album on radio, and then bought my first Rush album, which was actually the 3-disc set “Archives”. I never did see a live show. I only know Fastway from their 1st album.

Super Team Up: Pete Way from UFO and Fast Eddie from Motorhead... Did they have more than one album?

Super Team Up: The fake crowd noise is the worst... I can barely hear the announcers.

steveinthecity: I’m not getting Tampa Bay, it’s St. Louis vs 49ers. +1 on crowd noise. I forgot there was no crowd at first, then wondering why the announcers are talking so loud.

steveinthecity: Ugghh...forgot. Cardinals are Arizona, not St. Louis.

Super Team Up: At least we beat Miami
