Turns out Notch bought an Aphex Twin album for $46,000

0

That's where yer Minecraft money is going folks

One of the more interesting Kickstarter projects in recent memory is the Caustic Window project, an effort to buy and then release copies of a fabled "lost" album from electronic maverick Aphex Twin. After being successfully funded, the original and unique vinyl pressing was put up on eBay and sold for just over $46,000 to a mystery buyer. Turns out that mystery buyer was Minecraft head honcho Markus "Notch" Persson, who isn't exactly short of cash these days. 

Whilst initially a mystery, Notch recently tweeted he "spent a lot of money on a double LP from the '90s." Suppose if you've got plenty of cash you can splurge on things like that; I felt slight aggrieved at having to spend £25 on the recent Spiderland reissue...
