    I'm still confused. 
    What does it all mean? 
    Is the world ending? 
    Help me out here
    I know I was born and I know that I'll die. The in between is mine.

    Tell me that Led Zeppelin is a 50 year old band without telling me.

    Most importantly, how did you manage to get The Object?!? I saw on Pawn Stars Rick was able to get one and I thought the guy said there were only around 10 made.

    I don't think this is a real object. I bought it at a estate sale in Scarsdale for 100 bucks about 30 years ago. I'ved checked and there were copies sold back in the day that look exactly the same even with engraved numbered to 1000

    Gotcha. Still very cool though! I’d love to own one someday.

    President Obama?
    I died. I died and you just stood there. I died and you watched. I died and you walked by and said no. I'm dead.

    Being as they included the little sketch, it can only be the Zeppelin reference.

    My guess is it’s a reference to the “presence” Led Zeppelin felt when recording that album. 

    “The cover and inside sleeve features images of people interacting with a black obelisk-shaped object. Inside the sleeve, the item is referred to simply as ‘The Object’. It was intended to represent Zeppelin's ‘force and presence’… Both Page and Plant have said that the presence of the object in the photographs made people stop and think about what is real, which reflected the music.”


    "There's a $10,000 bill in it for you."
    "Oh yeah? Which president's on it?"
    "Uh, all of them. They're having a party. Jimmy Carter's passed out on the couch."

    That makes sense.

    There’s an excellent documentary about Hipgnosis on Netflix called Squaring The Circle. I highly recommend checking it out.
