In My Mailbox (IMM) #2

It’s been a looooooong couple of weeks for me filled with a never ending sickness. I seriously slept more than 70 hours one week. As someone who doesn’t sleep much, or particularly enjoy a long sleep, it has been disturbing.

Luckily I received some goodies in the mail to cheer me up!

First, the brand new P.O.S. album titled We Don’t Even Live Here.

P.O.S. is one of my favorite rappers and part of my favorite rap/hip-hop collective, Doomtree. I highly recommend all of these extremely talented artists.

Originally P.O.S. had been scheduled for a national tour, but because of health issues he’s had to cancel. You can learn more about the situation and how to help over on Doomtree’s website.

Even though you might not be able to see him in concert soon, you can still enjoy the video for “Get Down” (NSFW with all the cursing, but you should probably blast it when you get home).

My second package was a result of Neil Gaiman’s All Hallow’s Read. Back in 2010, Gaiman proposed that each person give/lend/share a scary book on Halloween. This book could go to a friend, family member, or stranger. It doesn’t matter! As long as you share.

I happened to be the winner of an All Hallow’s Read giveaway. The Girl Who Loved Zombies sent me I Am Legend by Richard Matheson. I enjoyed the film, so I have high hopes for the novel. The rumors (they’ll stay that way until I read the book) that they are massively different just makes it all the more exciting.

What did you get this week? Have you also fallen victim to illness as the temperatures slip toward winter?

In My Mailbox (IMM) #1

There are a few In My Mailbox memes around and even more bloggers unaligned to a specific version. Most of the versions I know are for book blogs and have bookish restrictions. I, however, would like to share all of my non-bookish things with you as well. So for now, I will be unaligned. Here are the goodies that were in my mailbox this week!

First up is a nerdy t-shirt! This design is by Nathan Davis, titled “Black Knight Rises.” I purchased this from my favorite of the daily t-shirt sites, Teefury, but you can still get it from Redbubble. It’s a wonderful mashing of the movies Monty Python and the Holy Grail and The Dark Knight Rises.

“Look, that rabbit’s got a vicious streak a mile wide! It’s a killer!”

I also received the cd Disc O-Zone by Moldovan pop group O-Zone. This cd was released in 2004 and contains the song “Dragostea Din Tei,” also known as “The Numa Numa Song” popularized by this video. I’ve had a digital copy of this cd for years now, and I love it! But I’ve always wanted a hard-copy to play in my car (since the disc player decides to go kaput any time it tries to deal with a burned cd). The funniest bit, part of the case is in German, and part is in English.

“Haiduc” = Outlaw
Arched Eyebrows also = Outlaw

That’s what I got this week. Did you get anything fun?
