Secret Santa 2K17!!!! ***SIGN UP CLOSED!***

Recommended Posts

Mine came today! My dumbass immediately assumed it was the new Tyler, The Creator album because there were bees all over the packaging. I was gonna wait till Christmas but oh well, lol. 

Here's my presents:

20171202_163117_zpskq030ecs.jpg?w=480&h=

Marald Van Haasteren - I Would Waste It On You mini-print: Marald does a lot of art for Baroness like those Baroness picture discs. I love art prints and wish I had more so I'm really excited to have received this!

20171202_163218_zps5oqutex2.jpg?w=480&h=

A Perfect Monster sticker pack 3 and some BRLSQ stickers: Baizley is my absolute favorite artist and I don't know how my SS figured that out but I'm extremely happy with the stickers, I also love most things Burlesque of North America does and already have a bunch of stickers from them so I'm happy to add more to the bunch!

20171202_163235_zpsalgwrzkr.jpg?w=480&h=

Harakiri Criterion Collection Blu-Ray: I'm extremely foreign to Criterion Collection so I'm gonna pop this in the PS4 and watch it tonight with my girlfriend. Really appreciate this one though, I'm always open to new things.

Pokémon cards: Always love getting some, as I recently started collecting again. All of these are either rares or promos, and I don't have the Xerneas promo so I'm happy to add that one to my collection!

20171202_163353_zps7dhynx28.jpg?w=480&h=

Pallbearer - Heartless: An amazing album from an amazing band. I didn't even realize my collection was Pallbearer-less until my SS pointed it out. This album is probably gonna end of on my best of 2017 list alongside the new Elder album. Thank you for getting this album for me, I needed this one in my collection for sure!

 

I also got a bunch of stickers, including a Rick and Morty get schwitty decal sticker, and some deathwish stickers!

 

I'm not 100% sure who my Secret Santa is but I'm gonna have to make the educated guess that it was @deadreckoning. I hope I guess that right, lol. Thanks a million for the gifts, they were very thoughtful and I'm gonna get that print framed ASAP.

Bingo. I am glad you dig everything. I had a blast putting it together. You're right, the pallbearer record is one of the year's best. It's at the top of my list. I also need to frame that Marald Van Haasteren print. I hope you and your girlfriend enjoy the movie, glad you had a blue-ray player. Happy holidays to you and yours.

 

If i may ask what gave may identity away?

It was extremely hard to figure it out, I had to reread all the bios multiple times and you had Baroness, Pallbearer and Hot Water Music (the first song on the mixtape you sent me was HWM) in your faves. What through me off was the Criterion film because someone else in their bio said they were huge fans and then the rebel alliance sticker also through me off because several people said they liked Sar Wars (including you). I'm glad I made the right guess. 

Also I forgot to mention, I'm excited to pop your mixtape you made me in my car. I've never heard almost all of those bands.

Excellent deductive reasoning. Also, my screen name is buried in the mix cd, vis-a-vis the small brown bike track. There is some great 90s emo/post hardcore in there, with a bunch of local NJ/Staten Island bands.

Just got home from a Christmas party to find my secret Santa gift waiting for me! I tore right into that sucker and it is full of AMAZING stuff. I’ll post photos and more details tomorrow but SS, if you’re reading, you did a killer job!!!

Well?...

Ha, sorry! Got caught up in work. Here's what was in my secret santa package:

First off, my SS sent me a stack of various download codes and stickers, which will be put to good use. I'm especially stoked on that Tuesday sticker — I love anything Dan Andriano related. (Also, SS, there was a folded up $5 bill in with the download codes — not sure if that was on purpose or not, but thanks regardless!)

Next, I got an Onyx cassette (perfect for bumping in my old-ass car stereo, which still plays tapes), a dope Jeff Rosenstock slipmat, and the complete Sports Night series on DVD! It's literally one of the best, most underappreciated TV shows of all time, and I can't wait to re-watch it.

Then I got some cool-looking flexis — I'm not familiar with either band, but I'm guessing they're both on the Oi! spectrum. Looking forward to checking them out!

My SS must've been lurking my Discogs want list, as this is on there — it's a UK-only single by Mates Of State, a band I've loved for a long time, that I've been meaning to pick up for some time but never got around to. Stoked to finally have it!

But wait, there's more: My SS threw in three LPs from the Falcon, the Copyrights and Farewell Continental. I'm already familiar with all three bands and happy to add them all to my collection!

 

Last but not least, my SS  got me a Oneders T-shirt! That Thing You Do! is one of my top movies EVER, and this was totally unexpected and awesome. I'm literally wearing the shirt right now as I type this, so here's a picture of the shirt design:

This was an awesome package, and I'm super-appreciative for all the thought that went into it. Based on the clues provided, I'm guessing my Secret Santa is @ozfacter. Am I right?
