    Now... I don't want to start a stampede or anything... but I happen to have some black paint.
    In.
    My.
    Basement.

    Flat black.
    Satin black.
    Gloss black.
    Water based.
    Oil based.

    Yes, it's true.
    It's true.

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    I knew this question would come :|
    Fortunately, my wife is still out of town birding this week -- otherwise, I would have had the following, awkward conversation (artist's conception follows):
    Mrs. H: "Dear*... why are you going down into the basement with a camera?
    mrh: To take a picture of some black paint.
    Mrs. H: heavy sigh

    GPS turned off on the camera -- you'll never find me, bwahahahahahahaha!
    UPS and FedEx can't... :#
    ___________
    * Any conversation that starts with her saying Dear either means I am in trouble or she's totally flummoxed by whatever she observes me doing.

    No eggshell black.
    No pastel black.
    Dang.

    I did have some matte black, as it turned out. Very limited quantity.

    This being the holiday season and all... I would be remiss if I didn't share this post I read on ASR that cops to a possible source for some of the elusive black paint.

    Of course, no link is provided attesting to the actual source of the alleged pigment.
