Discogs, the world’s second-best music website, and noted hub for buying/selling/cataloging Hoobastank rarities has a money problem.
…Sorry, did I say “money problem?” What I meant was: Discogs is now FLUSHED WITH CASH!!!
How is this possible, you ask? Well, following the passing of Great Grandpappy Merriweather Discogs, the online marketplace inherited the largest blueberry farm this side of the Mississippi River. That farm was then promptly sold to a mysterious shadow organization to the tune of $2.5 million. At least that’s what one source says. Other, arguably more reliable sources say that Discogs received an investment of $2.5 million from former Warner Music Group board member, and current kind-looking fellow, Jörg Mohaupt.
As a result of his investment, Mohaupt will become a member of the board of Discogs parent, Zink Media. Mohaupt joins a board whose members may or may not also include Discogs execs Chad Dahlstrom, Kevin Lewandowski, Nik Kinloch, the ghost of The Big Bopper, and, you guessed it, Doug Robb from Hoobastank! (Only two of those are untrue.)
So congrats to Discogs, whose database numbers continue to grow, and who now have more money than either you or I can ever hope to even someday develop the capacity to imagine. Hey, maybe Discogs can send some of that dough TMT’s way; in return, we can kick them some killer hot replica watch recs. Just a thought…
