ATP-Style meaning: I'll be wearing an old man sweater when I dole out the assignments. And scoffing at the lot of you.


This is the annual 2011 Secret Santa thread for whoever wants to participate.

WHAT TO DO:

1) Send an email to: 2012coachella@gmail.com with your FULL NAME AND ADDRESS. I will take on the responsibility of curating your Santa assignment; who you will be assigned to will be based on my mood and how much I like you; you will not know who your Santa is until your gift arrives.

2) Answer the questions below and post them. Your Santa will refer back to your post when he/she is trying to figure out what to get you.

3) Your Santa assignment will be sent to you on NOVEMBER 23 (in time for Black Friday). Once you discover who you are going to be Santa for, just check this thread to see what that person likes. DO NOT POST WHO YOU WILL BE A SANTA FOR.

4) Buy a gift accordingly and ship it NO LATER THAN DECEMBER 15. Gift price maximum is $20. Be creative! See the awesomeness in the 2010 (http://coachella.com/forum/showthread.php?t=43055&highlight=secret+santa) thread. Also: 2009 (http://coachella.com/forum/showthread.php?t=33947&highlight=secret+santa) and 2008 (http://coachella.com/forum/showthread.php?t=23022&highlight=secret+santa). No dildos. This is serious business.

5) Don't be an asshole. If you sign up, don't leave someone hanging.

6) No n00bs. Sorry. If we’re going to be handing out other people’s names and addresses, we sort of need to know you. Some of these ladies around here don’t need another stalker. You must either a) have a post count of 500 b) have a member vouch for you or c) fly to Honolulu and have a Maui Brewing Company Coconut Porter with Courtney.


QUESTIONNAIRE: (Please copy and paste into a post of your own, and answer the questions as best you can).


1) What is your favorite color?

2) What is your T-shirt size?

3) What is your favorite animal (if you want something with an animal on it)?

4) If you would like to receive band merchandise, which band would you choose?

5) What movies do you like?

6) What eating establishments do you like?

7) What kinds of candy/snack foods do you like?

8) What sorts of activities do you engage in

Merry Christmas.

This would be more interesting if assignments were not 'random'. Go all out and curate the assignments with an eye towards mischief.

c) fly to Honolulu and have a Maui Brewing Company Coconut Porter with Courtney

YES!


1) What is your favorite color? I like them all! Especially if they are in stripe form. I like stripes. And chevrons. And plaid.

2) What is your T-shirt size? Large. But it better be a boat neck or scoop neck style, because I hate wearing crew neck anything.

3) What is your favorite animal (if you want something with an animal on it)? Ummm. I like animals when Kiki Smith draws them (https://www.google.com/search?q=kiki+smith&um=1&ie=UTF-8&hl=en&tbm=isch).

4) If you would like to receive band merchandise, which band would you choose? Can I steal Bryan's answer and say Sonic Youth? Also Yo La Tengo. Oh, or Dean & Britta if you want to burn me a copy of their 13 Most Beautiful Songs for Andy Warhol Screen Tests, because I have been meaning to listen to that forever.

5) What movies do you like? Paris Texas, Lost In Translation, The Royal Tenenbaums, Pulp Fiction, The Graduate, Being John Malkovich, Heathers, The Usual Suspects, Almost Famous, The Maltese Falcon, North By Northwest, Memento, Citizen Kane, Roman Holiday, various other obvious and predictable choices.

6) What eating establishments do you like? I like eating places you've never heard of. I like eating places that don't even exist yet. Also, anywhere top-notch chefs are doing their version of local, seasonal, farm-to-table, in the style of Chez Panisse. But mostly locally I eat at Downtown at HiSAM (http://www.yelp.com/biz/downtown-honolulu)/Town (http://www.yelp.com/biz/town-honolulu), and my kitchen.

7) What kinds of candy/snack foods do you like? I'm trying to be healthy, so right now that includes lots of fresh veggies, nuts, beans, and whole grains. But if you wanted to send me something edible, some sort of regional healthy food from your city would be cool. And I really like unusual spices and tea in pretty packaging. No candy.

8) What sorts of activities do you engage in? Competitive internet-surfing. Also sometimes reading magazines of the fashion and lifestyle variety, swimming (with about a pound of SPF 60 on me), hiking in the dark before sunrise so I can reach the peak as the sun is coming up and feel badass, icing my sore muscles and spending a lot of time in my gym's sauna and hot tub after aforementioned swimming and hiking, going to art museums and making snarky remarks about what the docent tours get wrong, dancing so so so poorly (preferably after drinking too much), popping blisters on my feet from the heels I wear for aforementioned dancing, swooning over Ira Glass from This American Life on NPR, sending/receiving handwritten letters, driving out into barren landscapes in the middle of nowhere to visit obscure earth art, lusting after well-designed foreign and niche office supplies (like this (http://gravelandgold.com/shop/notebooks/med-postalco-notebook/) and this (http://www.russellandhazel.com/content/signature-pattern-binders) and this (http://www.seejanework.com/productcart/pc/Semikolon-File-Folders-207p2896.htm)), revising this post until it becomes a full-on multi-page essay, and did I mention the internet?

9) What are your sports teams? I don't really watch sports unless it involves someone taking me on a date with the prospect of really good nookie afterwards, in which case I will occasionally make an exception.

10) What else do you want the Elf Master to know? Mail to Hawaii takes a fuckload of time, so please use USPS Priority Mail if you don't want it to be on a boat for six weeks.

1) What is your favorite color? Black, grey, and white. And I have been told by my girlfriend that I already have entirely too much of all three in my wardrobe. So, anything colorful.

2) What is your T-shirt size? I'm in a weird purgatory between men's medium and large. If it runs tight like a UK shirt or American Appy, I'm a large. Otherwise, medium usually works.

3) What is your favorite animal (if you want something with an animal on it)? I like clever animals with cute people-like hands. If I go to the zoo, I like watching the animals that build things, cause mischief, play, etc. That said, I can't imagine wanting something with, say, a rock chuck on it.

4) If you would like to receive band merchandise, which band would you choose? I've been on a big Husker Du kick lately. '80s college rock is my favorite "era" or "genre." I'm not a vinyl collector though; simply don't have the room for it.

5) What movies do you like? Almost all of my favorite films are '60s European art house classics, or '70s New Hollywood films. Bergman is my favorite filmmaker. Godfather and Godfather, Part II (with a slight preference for Part II), are probably my favorites movies. I like all of the contemporary stuff most people would probably expect (P.T. Anderson, Wong, Charlie Kaufman, Sofia Coppola, etc.) But I can also enjoy a mindless comedy or action film; I enjoy trash as much as art sometimes. That said, I already own way too many DVDs and Blu-rays for my own good.

6) What eating establishments do you like? I love trying new local restaurants. Total sucker for pizza and carb-heavy comfort food.

7) What kinds of candy/snack foods do you like? a) Dark chocolate. b) Cookies. c) Combinations of a) and b).

8) What sorts of activities do you engage in? Music, film, politics, reading and debating about each the foregoing. Literature, when I have the time. Dining and wine. Hiking. Visiting National Parks. Drinking like Don Draper.

9) What are your sports teams? New York Yankees, Notre Dame football. I get enough grief for those two that I don't really need to pick any more up. Also, the Utah Jazz when they are relevant/playing.

10) What else do you want the Elf Master to know? I am the most Christmas-loving atheist you will ever meet.

I'm listening to 95%+ electronic music these days, most slanted towards UK Funky, Garage, not shitty House, etc. Get me a shirt from Size Records and I'll cut a bitch.

5) What movies do you like? Classic movies, artsy flicks, mentally deep movies. I have a blue ray player too, wink wink. But seriously, not a huge movie buff.

6) What eating establishments do you like? Local, unique, non-chains.

7) What kinds of candy/snack foods do you like? None really, although I'm a sucker for good chocolate.

8) What sorts of activities do you engage in? Cooking, cycling, cooking, music production, cooking, espresso, and backgammon. And like bmack, I LOVE me a unique vinyl record.

9) What are your sports teams? AZ Cardinals or Suns.

10) What else do you want the Elf Master to know? I don't like crap, so I'd rather have something small/unique/etc. than a disposable novelty item. Posters/art is good too - my walls in my house are bare as fuck.

Alright....


1) What is your favorite color?
Black (and blue)

2) What is your T-shirt size?
L

3) What is your favorite animal (if you want something with an animal on it)? Dogs and horses.

4) If you would like to receive band merchandise, which band would you choose? Not really a merch guy.
I don't think I've ever wasted money on merchandise at a show. Buuuut... Radiohead, Grace Jones, Color Me Badd, Bel Biv Devoe, other 80s/90s novelty acts


5) What movies do you like?
The usual suspects - PTA, Kubrick, Woody Allen, Hitchcock, Altman, Sidney Lumet, Satyajit Ray. I also love discovering little films that never found an audience but are surprisingly moving, intellectually stimulating, beautifully filmed or, sometimes, just funny. Also like discovering LGBT history through film. It's sometimes deeply hidden, but even so it can be thrilling.


6) What eating establishments do you like?
Local. Talented mixologists/great cocktails, fun for groups, great food for sharing (possibly small plates/tapas). Also love those zero-ambiance, hole-in-the-wall strip mall joints which turn out to have the best 'authentic' [insert country] cuisine.


7) What kinds of candy/snack foods do you like?
Not big on the typical American candy you're going to find in a grocery store. Like a lot of European stuff. Prefer chocolates over "fruity" stuff.


8) What sorts of activities do you engage in?
In no particular order... love reading (mainly fiction), film, theatre, classical and popular music, hiking, swimming, nature excursions, museums, preparing desserts, dinner parties, volunteer work (seniors, lgbt and homeless)

9) What are your sports teams?
My favorite athletes are Olivia de Havilland and Elaine Stritch


10) What else do you want the Elf Master to know?
I'm open to just about anything. I'm a creative thinker, but I have absolutely no arts & crafts skills, so I'm easily impressed (and delighted) by hand made items.

I also love it when friends get to introduce each other to that one film, album, artist, book that doesn't get a lot of attention but which really made an impression on you. Something you're passionate about and would love to share. I'm open.

I have a healthy appreciation for camp and kitsch too.



Edited to say: If we end up with any international Santas, I'm happy to be assigned to them.

Funny thing is, this will probably be the only gift I give this year.

QUESTIONNAIRE: (Please copy and paste into a post of your own, and answer the questions as best you can).


1) What is your favorite color?
Green

2) What is your T-shirt size?
XL

3) What is your favorite animal (if you want something with an animal on it)?
I'm afraid to answer this, for fear I would actually get something with an animal on it. I love animals, but not animal paraphernalia.

4) If you would like to receive band merchandise, which band would you choose?
Pixies, Devo, TMBG...was going to say The Cure, but I already have enough Cure shirts I don't wear.

5) What movies do you like?
Obscure 60's-80's cult comedies.

6) What eating establishments do you like?
Oreganos, Four Peaks Brewery, Mexican food in general.

7) What kinds of candy/snack foods do you like?
Not a candy/snacky guy (I got fat the old fashion way, with carbs, beer, and meat), but I do like those Chocolate Covered Cherries you see around the holidays, and I wont turn down a pretzel, filled, covered or plain.

8) What sorts of activities do you engage in
Not enough these days. I don't have dogs to take out anymore. I don't really have time to play video games. Can't play in the snow anymore since I moved. Too broke to go to the movies or shows as much as I would like. I'm open to suggestions.

9) What are your sports teams?
I looked into buying the Coyotes, but it was too expensive, so I don't have any.
EDIT- Greendale College Human Beings.

10) What else do you want the Elf Master to know?
The Elf slaves are organizing behind your back.

4) If you would like to receive band merchandise, which band would you choose? I love band merch. Mogwai and Portishead are big ones I'd love merch from.

6) What eating establishments do you like? Anything that has an outstanding beer selection.

7) What kinds of candy/snack foods do you like? Red vines, lollipops, and toblerones.

I, like amyzzz, am obsessed with Doctor Who. I love glitter and other really flamboyant things. I also love functional things like caps and scarves.

Santa was gracious enough to let me sneak in at the last moment and participate this year.

1) What is your favorite color?

For t-shirts, usually black, white or blue. Any colour but red, really.

2) What is your T-shirt size?

Medium (sometimes Large if its a small fitting shirt)

3) What is your favorite animal (if you want something with an animal on it)?

Cats or Dinosaurs

4) If you would like to receive band merchandise, which band would you choose?

Artists that I like, but don't have merch from include
Arcade Fire (the "Don't Mess With Quebec" shirt would be cool)
Caribou
Crystal Castles
The Cramps (The yellow "Bad Music For Bad People" shirt)
or any other band people know I like

5) What movies do you like?

I've been trying really hard to find a copy of O' Brother, Where Art Thou? and it is proving to be a difficult task.

6) What eating establishments do you like?

I go to fast food places like McDonalds and Wendy's far too often. I am also a sucker for family friendly restaurant chains like Red Robins. One of my favorite places to go out for dinner is Japanese Food, however, I highly doubt any of you would be able to get gift cards from any of those places.

7) What kinds of candy/snack foods do you like?

Salt and Vinegar chips, Jalepeno chips, Tortilla chips, Pizza, Snickers, Mars, Reeces PB Cups, Wunderbar... I just love to snack.

8) What sorts of activities do you engage in

I play bass in a band and guitar on my spare time. I own all the Nintendo consoles, and the Legend of Zelda series is my favorite video game series. I also love the internet, and spend far too much time watching cat videos and other viral videos. Lately, I have been spending far too much time watching the TV show Adventure Time and continually watching this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6VVqEG7lNc) video.

9) What are your sports teams?

N/A

We must not be Facebook friends, because I posted about this. I got:

It's a map where you can scratch off the countries you have visited. It rules.

Thank you for this. I just ordered one for my mom.

I have been extremely frustrated thinking about gifts for my brother and sister and this is absolutely PERFECT for both of them (they both do a lot of traveling)!

Ok, ordered gift, but it's going to be shipped to my house first as I want to add a card/QC the product. So I'm reaaaalllly hoping to make it by next Thursday ship date deadline, it'll be close.

I've just been notified of a possible delay in the shipment of the items I've ordered for my recipient. They may not even make it to me until after the 15th. Fingers crossed.

Best prices are from Asia sometimes, then you look at shipping or eta of your item... :(

My gift ARRIVED! Very impressed with the amount of recon my Santa did, as it's (they're) totally spot on. I didn't already have them, and appreciate the thought.

I'll post pictures/details once I get my camera up and running. It wouldn't be the same if I just told y'all what I got.

I hope my person likes their gift. It's a roundabout way of satisfying a specific request from their post. Also hope my recipient gets their gift in time because it's shipping from overseas.

It's amazing how many people don't have a camera, or have one, but don't have the right cable for it (aka, they don't know how to use it, because who doesn't have a mini USB cable these days?).

I know how to use it, but just have been tied up and haven't had the time (at home) to do a proper photo, upload it to photobucket, and to tell the whole story. I'm also still working on my gift recipient's gift, as my plan hit some snags.

I've already PM'd my gift giver days ago thanking him...you'll all see tonight(ish).

Dear Recipient: I just received a status update on your gift items and their delivery to me has been delayed. I'm afraid that if this trend continues it may turn into a New Year's gift. Apologies in advance, but fingers crossed!

Dear Secret Santa: I gave my parents' address as that is where I had intended to spend Xmas week. However, it looks like the 'rents will be going out of town and as a result my brother and I won't be visiting them until early January. This is still TBC, but looks very likely. If you can resist spilling the beans until I get to pick the gift up, it would be greatly appreciated. Alternatively, if you haven't shipped it yet, no rush. ;)

Effort like this only happens when my mom's family are visiting, since they all live 2000 miles away. I'm trying to escape the christmas since it's finals week but it's becoming impossible. I'll tell my mom a bearded internet man supports her efforts.

To my Secret Santa recipient, packing your gift tonight and shipping tomorrow. Hope you like it!!

There's a small more personal package coming soon. I couldn't just do a gift card that would be lame.
