    Oh snap! I came home tonight to a package all the way from Vancouver! Ragepatton sent me some awesome vinyl and a lovely note as well. I no longer have a record player but I do have a vinyl collection and I'm always excited to add more. I coerce other people with record players to play stuff for me all the time

    Japandroids - The House The Heaven Built (on clear vinyl!) - the best part about this is that one of my favorite festival sets ever was seeing them play from the rail at Sasquatch in 2010. And one of my favorite memories of that set was seeing Josh to the left of me going at it in the mosh pit. Also the B side is a Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds cover of "Jack The Ripper."

    Needles//Pins - Getting On Home/Picture My Face - a local power/pop/punk Vancouver band that Josh supports. I love being introduced to new bands by all of ya'll so this is awesome.

    Paul McCartney - Wonderful Christmastime/Rudolph The Red Nose Reggae - HA! Adorable.

    Thanks so much, Josh. I'm bringing all of these to our next record club on Saturday and will post pictures and report back.

    9/12: Shifted @ Mercer
    9/24 - 28: Decibel Festival
    10/3-5: Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival
    10/4: Ought @ BoH
    10/5: The War on Drugs, Cass McCombs @ The Fillmore

    Robin was my secret Santa, and wow she got me some great stuff! It actually caught me by surprise because of the Amazon tape on it, as a bunch of things I ordered from them showed up today at the same time. Along with the blue version of the Reservoir Dogs soundtrack reissue, Robin was nice enough to also incude some Italian Roast coffee and a bunch of homemade cookies! Thanks so much Robin, and if you're going to Weekend 1 this year we should say hi!

    YAY! I am so glad that you liked it!!!! I got the shirt because you said you liked green and black, I hope that you didn't already have it?

    I was not sure if you liked Depeche Mode or not, but that is why I framed it... I think they make cool wall art, too
    Glad you like it!1

    Again, thank you soo much. I'm enjoying the single right now and probably will be doing so for the next few days, so I'm not sure I'll be hanging it up just yet. But I do love the album cover, so it will be going up. So fantastic!

    Holy crap, they shipped it fast! I sent it out on Saturday.
    I was anxious to hear which color you got for the soundtrack. I was soooo tempted to open it. Lol.
    The coffee is from a local shop up here. It's my favorite. I brew it every morning, so I hope you like it too. I also hope that you have a coffee grinder.
    I'm definitely going weekend 1. Let's have a beer!

    edit: By the way, I was still a little sick when I baked the cookies on Friday. If you happen to get sick right before the holidays, MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    Sorry recipient, mine was delayed shipping a few days because the local place's trucks were stuck in the snow. I'm almost certain you're going to love it though, and if you're a vegetarian and I didn't get that from the message, let me know and I'll make good.

    It secretly annoys the piss out of me that nowadays you have to go back and rethink things wondering whether or not the gift you got somebody is useless because there's actually a good chance they might be a fucking vegetarian.

    Dearest Recipient:

    I plan on shipping your gift tomorrow December 15th. Life has been crazy with this awful semester (hence why I have not posted on here much these last few months). I hope it arrives in one piece... It is very fragile. If, for whatever reason, it gets broken, I will happily send a replacement gift.

    Sincerely,
    Logan

    Okay, the names were listed inside a card (Christina? & I don't have the card with me, I'll edit this part) but I'm not familiar without the boardie names.

    I cannot express how happy I was when I shook the box and guessed it was a puzzle. I was even more thrilled to find out the ingenuity of it. It's a create-your-own-puzzle, but with my mentioned Goldfrapp!!! Alison Goldfrapp in the iTunes London, 2010 performance. Ooooh, I've never received a puzzle like this before and I could barely resist tearing it open and immediately getting to work.

    I was trying to be impressive by clocking my time, but I didn't realize how difficult the puzzle was actually going to be. I think I stopped counting at 3 hours, but that's GOOD! I love a good challenge.





    And, all finished


    Thank you so very much secret santa! I will always think of you when I pull out the puzzle.

    OB, I am so glad you like it. I was a little concerned (as I always am when giving gifts) that it might be a little cheesy, or lame. I love to give, but I'm not always confident that it's the right thing. I was going to add puzzle glue but I didn't want to delay the package, as I have been short on time lately. Let me know if the glue is something you would use and I will get that out to you. Merry Christmas. (Christina is my wife, she doesn't post. The messy name was mine, Mario.)

    Yes, the puzzle is a brilliant idea. I've got part of my shopping done now for the next holiday season. Thanks Maroo for the inspiration.
