    I took pictures but I cannot for the life of me get imgur to work today. Nothing will upload

    Sorry, I thought I'd be home today but now I actually won't be until Thursday. It's not worth this anticipation, I'm telling you right now. It's probably only bad if you have $100 invested in this BS

    I will post pictures when I get back to my house tomorrow. I don't expect thing of value to come from emailing Alcopop, but let me know what you all hear. I paid with PayPal so I'll have to research tomorrow to see what the limits of that are. I've never once in my life filed a claim for anything, but this set is so stupid I think I'm gonna.

    Forgot to mention a great part of this, the "cover" for the """""""""box set""""""""" (again, just folded thick photo paper) is a promo picture not from this album, but from Everything Is Debatable. 5 years old.

    Yeah, and I'm sick of this happening with this H O B B Y in particular. I don't know why they're always allowed to do things like this under the guise of "production issues", and we're just supposed to accept it. There are threads like this all the time. It's not at all what I paid for. I'll be interested to see everyone else's thoughts on this once they get theirs... I'm willing to accept the fact I may just be an ass

    I just got my box set in the mail. I am incredibly upset. Firstly, the way they packed this was loose in a much bigger box so it came SUPER damaged. So badly in fact, that USPS actually had a separate notification tacked onto it that it was received in bad condition. What didn't help was the fact that the packaging for the set is incredibly chincy to begin with. It's all kept together with a single piece of photo paper used as a band to keep all the 7 inches together. Now let's talk about what was promised and what it didn't come with: "Each track from the record is presented on its own clear 7” with separate artwork for the track..." -- Did not come with any artwork AT ALL. Got an envelope with 4 pictures from the music video in it. Not artwork, and certainly not "for each track." Each record is a clear 7" with the same black and white center label encased in a cheap piece of thin plastic "– with a signed note from Forrest included..." No note included. It's 1 cent cardboard beverage coaster with a signature on it "and individual limited number..." Not numbered anywhere "You’ll never pick up a greater release. GOFORIT!" This was a terrible release. Not worth it in my opinion at all. Complete waste of money.
  7. I unabashedly love this album and am really looking forward to this

    Great package Dunc, thanks for participating. Lastly let's make sure your giver gets their due. Text me the pictures and I will post them for you and you can write a little blurb. I'll send you a message with my number.
  11. Anyone who missed out on the colored records and isn't waiting for the box set may want to take a peek at the store. Not sure if it's a mistake or not but all three variants are showing for sale currently. Maybe they found a couple copies.

    Thank you to everyone who as posted so far, just a couple left! This has been so much fun to see and boy there were quite some hauls this year. Extra thanks to Youinreverse for allowing Sasan to be part of this year's exchange by sending overseas... a true MVP of the yearly exchange.

    I personally just upload to imgur--I don't even sign in, just do it anonymously--right click on the picture, click 'copy image address', and just paste the link in my post. The board automatically will make an image out of it for you. You shouldn't have to worry about embedding or HTML or anything.
