View Full Version : Want boxes/envelopes of free CDs? (For real this time.)

Okay, my office is overflowing with promos right now, so I am 100% committed to actually doing this to anyone who wants free CDs. Here's how it works:

1. E-mail me your name, mailing address and T-shirt size (we have a lot of random swag lying around, too, so if anything matches, I'll throw it in) to heisel [at] altpress [dot] com, with the subject "FREE SHIT". DO NOT PM ME. Only e-mail, please.

2. I'll mail you a box or envelope full of CDs and other goodies.

Pretty easy, right? A couple caveats:

1. One box/envelope per person.
2. No international orders. (Sorry, dudes.)
3. No special requests. I will grab from our piles and piles of excess promos at random until your package is filled. You will most likely get a nice cross-section of punk, metal, indie, emo, hardcore and shitty mainstream radio rock, with some random hip-hop/folk/world music/really random shit thrown in, as well.

Please help me clean my office the easiest way I know how.

UPDATE: The following people have had packages sent out:

James H. - received
Jordan R. - received

Jeff W.
Mark J.

I'm just curious - how many copies of an album does AP generally receive from the standard indie label?

Too many.

Okay, I'm currently out of boxes/envelopes (I'm just recycling packaging I get in the mail), so some of you are going to have to wait. The following people, however, all have a box/envelope going out with tomorrow morning's mail:

James H.
Jordan R.
John Z.
Jeff W.
Mark J.
Mike M.
Christopher G.

All of you are getting Sugarcult stickers/buttons/patches. Some of you are getting Sonic Unyon shot glasses. One of you is getting an Amon Amarth T-shirt, and another is getting a Final Destination 3 baseball cap. You're all getting tons of "name brand" music, as well -- plenty of shit you'll at least recognize, if not be into.

The following people have packages that will go out in tomorrow morning's mail:

Kory K.
Jason B.

One of you is getting a Nick Lachey DVD in your package.

I'm sending these out in the order I received the emails, by the way. There's still 21 more of you to go currently; I promise you'll all get a package eventually, it just depends on how many big envelopes and/or 30-count boxes I get in the mail on any given day that I can reuse.

The following people will have packages going out tomorrow morning:

Corey S.
Adam B.
Russell S.

Two of you are getting Thrice's last record. Two of you are also getting Drive-Thru Records samplers. One of you is getting the Draft record. One of you is getting the Gojira record. One of you is getting the new Hawthorne Heights record. And one of you is getting a navy blue baseball cap that says "CNU LA" with a red star on it.

I have no idea what it means, but it's velcro in the back, so that's pretty neat!

26 more of you to go...

MikeM
10-10-2006, 03:25 PM
Yes! I got the shot glass. I pretty much haven't heard of any of these bands save a few, but I'll check it out. Thanks dude.

Also, apparently I won some American Hardcore contest, as I got a signed book and movie poster in the mail today.

I have not gotten mine yet, and Aubin's package still hasn't arrived. I wonder if the US postal service has a vendetta against me I don't know about.

Edit: That said, thanks again.

Got mine, much appreciated. It came with Set Your Goals, an ex-Anniversary band, & something that sounds a little like Coldplay. Also, you must know a bit about my tastes, since you made sure to include several CD's by solo female folk performers, like the stuff they feature on Starbucks compilations.

to quote roommate #2, miss claire: "man, i don't know how much i'm into wearing shirts that say

We have a huge windowsill in our office's kitchen where all of us editors put all the stuff we don't want/have doubles of/etc. There's also a gigantic box of CDs below the sill. After the initial batch went out the other week, I made a pretty big dent, but then the combination of me not sending any out for a while and shitty CDs still coming in the mail has pretty much evened things out.
