Asquared, Those are wonderful. I want one. I could hook 10 trashy playa gifts on it. And a bell. Hey. Next year I'm gonna work bells into my necklaces.

Haha! That' really does fit you well TomServo. Now the question is, where are you going to put it? It could become a game!

I'm going to be like lemur, and post everything I received from 2013.

(Link to larger | Keyboard, and random paper are not swag.)

The Daft Punk VIP pass was by far my favorite one received. Just because all the fun I got to have with it. Not to say anything about finally being able to meet Daft Punk, and see their faces. After that it's a tie between the Stop the Horror button when used in sequence with the other face buttons around my hat, and the BLM glow in the dark bracelet. Plus BLM and robbidobbs takes a lot of shit from participants, and you gotta respect that.

I realized in Exodus that I had two smallish stashes of my dog tags left and went around giving out swag. People loved it!

Next year I'm making exodus specific swag. Make it it's own event.

i learned my lesson about swag. don't put the damn year on it.
i had 100 of those lanyards made, i have about 88 left :/

my fave gifts were not really 'swag' - i got a sick pocket knife and a leather spikey bracelet. i'm so not a leather spikey bracelet kind of girl, so it was fun to wear (plus, i couldn't get the damn thing off!).

**edit - if anyone wants a lanyard, send me your addy - happy to mail you one. i realize it's not as special as if i handed it to you with a hug, but it's better than them sitting in a cupboard gettin no love. i wore one the entire burn with a ton of shit clipped to it, and it held nicely :)

You did get all crazy when they started to play that one song from the Tron soundtrack. It's a good thing the VIP pass was legit too with it's fancy hologram.

THIS! This is one of the best ideas I've seen this week. You could even make fun of Exodus with it. Like "I survived the BRC Zombie motorcade 20XX," or something.

What a wonderful idea!

I wonder if either the Humor or the 2 door sports car could be whited out and replaced with a pirate ship on wheels or other MV.

A tow truck driver could hand out something similar thats like:

Tomservo, that's a nice pile o swag. I'm jealous of the DMV patch and metal necklace.

Most of this years has been made into this necklace. The large, useful items like lip balm and lighter will go on my lanyard. Asquared is sending one. (Thank you). And my deformed shrinky dink.

Now would be a good time to photo the stickers. I just saw them last night when I was getting out the duplicates to mail to Figjam for his 'door collage'.

Lots of stickers and cards this year. I went out and visited a lot more than usual. I can't decide whether to 'do' my bike or my van inside.

After the pics were taken and everything put back (on the fridge, hanging in the car, around my neck, etc) I discovered Goathead's HOMEBREW magnet and '11's and '12's Shot in the Dark glasses had missed the photo op. :|


The stickers will find the perfect permanent home, stuck to something I'll want to keep forever, as soon as I figure out what that is. 8)

the sticker that says "i don't know you yet, but i already love you"
omg, love that so much!

ratty - the stickers will last longer on the inside of your van than on the outside of your bike.

i really enjoyed sending out the lanyards to you guys. made me feel a little bit of the 'spirit' especially since i missed you all at the mNg.

They arrived today, and I'm blown away by the quality and sentiment expressed on them. I will be wearing them daily till I leave for the next burn.
