    mine came in great condition and since I can't go this year, i'm keeping the calendar to remind me why you don't get pregnant in July.

    Lol. I was thinking about it, but a friend is transporting it down for him. I couldn't do that to the friend.

    Also, the package only has a slight tear near the binding. Everything else is intact. I guess I was one of the lucky ones.

    The top flap of the box was crushed but only to where its slightly bent. Everything was in there though so I don't mind much. Got the Tesla Coil pin. Was hoping for a Coachella, Indio or Origami Swan one though. Oh well. It has got me a lot more excited now that its in my possession. See you all soon.

    if you read my first post in this thread, i very reasonably stated that i would fix it myself.

    Both of my weekend one boxes were in suprisingly good condition, the front side of each beaching ever so slightly pushed forward so that the lid doesnt quite match up giving the boxes the appearance of having a slight over bite. But no crumpled corners or major dents. Guess I have a gentle postman!

    Also, not like mine had to come very far.

    and you wonder why USPS is looking to remove Saturday service. Uncaring incompetence. Bring back Hank Chinaski.

    All the packages I received were damaged in some way, mostly ripped on the spine a little bit. I don't think that qualifies as crushed.

    My box was pretty fucked up. That being said, the shipping process WAS a lot less stressful than UPS last year. I'd rather have a banged up box than not have a box at all.

    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Whoafuck. I just cackled madly looking at those two pictures of fucked up boxes. I was pretty pissed when I got mine, and a corner was ripped, but now I love it. TORN BOXES OF WEEKEND 1 UNITE!

    If you got a package from the top 40% of the pile, you probably got a good condition box. I didn't pay for a fucked up box, but that long laugh made it highly worth it. That, and I think the wristbands look fucking awesome this year. Happiness is a gold and green wristband (yes, it is)

    Because if they were this smart they'd be in a different business making real money.

    Got a naked wizard pin, tesla coil, big rig and robot pin. Was hoping for drunk sandal guy...
