Some of you might have seen the Doldrums CD-R, but I found some other items I thought I'd share. There's this site called worthpoint.com, it's basically an eBay archive. Found some cool Ariel Pink releases that were sold a while back. Does anyone have a worthpoint.com account? I'd love to see what these sold for, plus there might be some higher quality images.
Edit: Signed up for a free trial. The quality of the images were the same, but I updated the items with the prices they sold for.
The Doldrums first edition CD-R
Sold March 07, 2011 for $22
This is a first pressing CDR of Ariel Pink's "The Doldrums" album.
Initially pressed by Pink himself on homemade CDRs with self designed cover art in a similar manner to the original Glass Candy & The Shattered Theater CDRs.
These discs were only sold at gigs, though mostly given out to industry, press & friends; it was in this manner that Animal Collective were made aware of Ariel Pink and signed him to their "Paw Tracks" imprint.
Try finding one of these now...impossible.

Yas Dudette 2007 CD-R
Sold July 02, 2011 for $15.99
I bought this CD-R at his show he played at the Independent in San Francisco. Gang Gang Dance headlined and Mick Barr opened the show. This was before Ariel pink formed his current line-up of musicians. Geneva Jacuzzi was the one selling the merch and I believe she had some part in making these unique collage, hand-made gatefold covers.
