Part Three: The Crayons Travel. Trade For A Picture




Crayons and DVDTalk have been synonymous over the last 1 1/2 months. Here's the deal. To each person who wants a crayon, I will mail it to them. No charge. There is a rather inexpensive way to send them out. There are 96 crayons needing a home and looking to have a picture taken somewhere. Just use my email and send me the request. When each one arrives take a picture somewhere with it. Your towns "Welcome" sign or by the car. Being held by someone or sitting unperturbed on a fence. Perhaps with food of some sort. All that is needed is a picture posted here. Might even measure the distance of how far all the crayons go.

All I need is your username and shipping address. Use my email in my profile to send it. I will not share the information or post any of that anywhere. My word. On each package will be my return address in case any of them get lost and have to come back. No MIA crayons on this mission.

- There are 95 left. The black one is already claimed.

That is a super cool idea. I would do it BUT i'm a super lazy bastard and the crayon would only sit on my couch and keep my company as i bitch about dvds in P & S. In general i would be an unfit crayon parent.

If I wasn't a boring person who never goes out.....I'd want to be a part of this.

But this will be fun to see when it's all done.

AudioWizard - this could be the turning point in your life. Accept the crayon. Love the crayon. Care for the crayon. Photograph the crayon.

MasterofDVD - come on - don't be a bystander - be a bydoer!

But what if i went to the store and left the crayon in the car with the windows rolled up and come back with my grocery bags of beer and porn to see my little crayon has melted. I would just lose the will to live.

Well, you'd probably go to jail for the rest of your life- but it would make a cool picture!

YGM - soon

I think all the original bidders for the other items (typewriter, etc) should get one.

But hey, my word don't mean much.

If he wasn't reserving the color of the ninja for himself, I'd be all over it...

You know how when you end up not doing something, and that thing is kinda cool, and they call that "laming out"?

Well, I'd like to think of doing this as "laming in."










In a good way, I mean.

I want the box with the built in sharpener instead of a crayon or I'm not playing.

Sure. Alright. My email address is on the profile (or I can send it to you if you'd like). Two things though:

1. You'd need to send the crayon to Australia.
2. I want the electric blue one on the right of your picture.

If you're happy with the conditions, then I'll forward on my shipping address.

That's why I had to utilize every bit of my cat like reflexes to make sure that you didn't grab it first. Apparently, I'm not Bandoman at all....

hmm....I'd take brown cuz I'm brown, but after seeing what the last guy did to the crayons, do I want brown? it'd be the hardest to "diagnose"...

i was just about to ask for this..

you can count me in.. but to busy to even think right now.. so Id like an idea of what is gone..

so i expect you to type up every single color in that box.. and put a name next to each one once it is taken
