SECRET SANTA 2017: All videos in second post
« on: October 20, 2017, 08:14:23 PM »
Well, its that time again when we spread some good ol' forum cheer in a tangible form.   As usual, we will split into N. America and Europe (if there are enough people who want to participate in Europe - it's been a few years since we had enough people partake across the pond).  Sign up below and leave a "need by" date if you are leaving town/school for the holidays.  Default date is Dec. 5, that way we avoid the shipping deluge.  If you have a true "need by" date, a return date would also be helpful incase you have to get your gift out late.

Rules:
*  Don't tell anyone who you have.  If you need gift ideas, PM me and I will contact your SS, or you can post suggestions for yourself in this thread once the matchmaking is done.
*  Gifts should be around $30 not including shipping.
*  Plan on shipping your gift at least a week before someone's "Need by" date.  Different people might have different dates, be courteous to your recipient.  This includes being late, try not to be too late.
*  Don't put your name on the package.  Use Kevin Moore, Mike Porntoy, or some other forum joke for your name.  Use your real address for the return address though, just in case something happens and your package needs to get sent back to you.
*  Pictures or video of you opening is required.  Video preferred.
*  If your person didn't get a gift from you last year, you are out unless you provide restitution (send the person a gift).
*  If you get a gift from lonestar, you are not allowed to do anything that will get you banned from the forums for at least a year (lonestar got letters in 2011 and lateralus88 in 2012).
*  There is a minimum "notoriety" requirement this year.  In all but two cases, the person who fails to give a gift is a newbie.  A repeat of four years ago non-participants is unacceptable.

Can you imagine some alien race comes to a large nebula they've never seen before, and it just turns out it's the Federation's dumping ground for space-smile?

I'm in.  Funny cause I was about to pull out my gift from last year, the toy ref that you can rip apart when there are bad calls during a football game in frustration, cause typically a PSU vs. Michigan game has lots of bad calls against PSU (there's legit conspiracy theories on this).  :lol

Don't hate me I'm not special like you but I'm gonna have to sit out again this year.
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

Just a reminder, read the damn letter before you start ripping gifts open  ;)

Coz and I IM'd at the Facebooks ... he said he was grossed out over the summer through the original Sons of Apollo thread.  I tried to encourage him to come back.

Hadn't realized Jackie hasn't posted here ... again, I see her so much in my FB feed, I kinda missed that she hasn't been present here.
