As always, I'm getting Fabio's premium. Almost every year, it's my favorite premium. Dave Mandl's premium might be serious competition this year though.

I see the Gristleism box or Gary Panter book... is there a price difference in pledge?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/7/13 4:09pm Caryn:

Is the Panter book one of the grand prizes, or just a 15 buck one?

okie dokie, check is in the mail... thanks Fabio & Dave and the whole FMU crew!
Avatar Thu. 3/7/13 4:13pm Fabio:

The Panter book is the grand prize for this show. A mouse pledge ($365) is the minimum to get in the running for this as it is a massive item.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/7/13 4:14pm Caryn:

Thanks for the info, Fabio! I suspected as much.
Avatar Thu. 3/7/13 4:16pm chaoserene:

so it's the slipcase box then I presume.. I own one and I highly recommend it, it's literally a treasure trove of art, very much worth supporting Fabio for!
  Thu. 3/7/13 4:18pm Martin:

Love Ascention! I too have it on vinyl from 99. and esg and...Very fun place. I already pledged once during Andy Breckman soak to double the $ and have no more. But I love your show and Dave's and hope I can find some money on the street or something now or next year to give more to FMU.
This sounds familiar and great...but to hear it live WAS transcendent. 3x. Once in the tiny Tier3, where I heard Liquid Liquid and Dog Eat Dog and Rhys Chatham. Crazy teen life and yes, I will say...some good ole days. Thanks for playing Branca and so much great music.

Seriously, I've been looking through the premiums list since it arrived, and it's by my side all the time now during the Marathon. I keep referring to it and scribbling on it. And so far, I've managed to whittle down the list to 44 premiums I still need to get! This is going to be impossible!

listen to WFMU, read books, walk around the city (but I can't do anything overly entertaining). I owe the gf quite a bit in rent $. I'll try to guilt her into donating (I do so every year, regardless), as, there's usually very few donations from Mexico.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/7/13 5:29pm Parq:

I really got a lot out of seeing Hunter, and I don't mean to disparage it, but I thought Cape Fear was better -- for me, way more unnerving. The everyday, candid presentation of the events in Fear made it more believable, and therefore way more terrifying. Just one guy's opinion.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/7/13 5:36pm Caryn:

@Parq: I agree that "Cape Fear" has an edge of reality that "Hunter" doesn't, but I feel that's the point of "Hunter". It's supposed to be more about mood, almost like a slightly surreal nightmare. Laughton was closer to the mood of German cinema, which I suspect is one reason "Hunter" was not popular when it was first released.

Once I fixed the email typo on my resume (once someone noticed it), I started to get job offers. Been to numerable interviews, just waiting. I've delivered a litter of mice here at previous marathons, but, until I get that call, I'm being cautious. Once I do work, I'll pledge regardless.
