HEY SOON-TO-BE FAN EXPO TORONTO ATTENDEES!!
ANYONE GOING TO RUE MORGUE’S FESTIVAL OF FEAR??
More specifically, anyone going to attend the SHOCKTAIL PARTY at the Revival Bar on Friday the 23rd at 9PM??? (if this sounds interesting, it’s a celebration of Festival of Fear’s 10th anniversary, and it has live music from an incredible band and renowned DJs, a costume contest, and more… and you can get $5-off tickets for it HERE! Only $15, $20 at the door!)
If by chance you are… I have a quest for you. Well, it’s really more of a plea. And it may seem silly, but it means a lot to me, and you will be rewarded monetarily (and greatly) for it, so maybe you could hear me out?
You see, I’ve been a fan of the band The Birthday Massacre for years now. I have all their albums, I’ve seen them in concert multiple times, I own countless merch, I’ve hung out with the band members backstage… they’ve helped me through some dark times and I love them dearly. But due to my unfortunate location across the country, and my under-the-limit age, I can’t make it over to Toronto to see the show they’ll be performing at the Shocktail Party, nor to the interactive panel they’ll be hosting at the Festival itself. To make it short, this deeply saddens me.
So, here’s where you come in, if you’re a kind enough soul to have read this far. At their show at the Shocktail Party, they’ll be selling these limited-run but incredibly gorgeous posters for $15:
…and since I’m unable to attend this marvelously horrific event myself, I’m dying for a little piece of commemoration just to show my support of the band and the festival as a whole. This poster works perfectly for that.
So, I’m wanting to know… would it be possible for some amazing TBM fan or Shocktail-goer to purchase one of these on my behalf and perhaps ship it to me? Of course, I’ll cover the cost of the poster itself and the shipping, and for the tremendous favor I’m willing to pay an extra $15 to whoever might grant me this wish, along with a full color commission if desired. If that’s not enough, I’d even be willing to cover the cost of the Shocktail Party ticket itself, if you reeeeally want me to. I’m actually pretty broke, but that’s how much this means to me. If there’s any other way you’d want me to repay you, please please let me know. I’m more than happy to accommodate anyone willing to do me such a great favor.
If you have a Paypal, I will send you the money for the poster + $5 or more for its shipment in advance, just to show you I am trustworthy. If the poster arrives to me in good, undamaged condition, I’ll then send you the extra $15 and (upon request) the reimbursement for the Shocktail ticket, or anything else you could possibly desire. Except unicorn blood or something. Not sure I could come through with that.
Sound like an alright deal?
Please, if anyone was willing to help me with this, I’d be forever grateful. No matter what, I’ll make sure you don’t go unrewarded for your kindness.
If you’re potentially interested, you can email me at email@example.com, or message me on my Tumblr.
Thanks so much to anyone who’s read this far, and sorry for clogging the Rue Morgue, Fan Expo, and TBM related tags :/ I’m incredibly grateful to be a part of the generous and loving community that The Birthday Massacre’s fanbase — and the classic horror genre’s supporters — really are!
THROUGH ALL THE STRESS THIS MONTH I FORGOT I’M GONNA SEE THE BIRTHDAY MASSACRE (!!!!!!) AND AESTHETIC PERFECTION AND CREATURE FEATURE AND WILLIAM CONTROL ON THURSDAY WITH ELLIE (AND PROBABLY JIMMY AND FELIX)
