    Live Between Us. One of my favourite albums ever.

    hard to say without knowing what 10 second clip you are referring to, but my guess is you've already made up your mind. 
    If it all sounds like that, then yeah, I'm not going to be able to get past that voice, but I honestly wonder if that wasn't a good representation...there are so many people that love them so much, I find it hard to believe if that's just their sound. Maybe I'll get around to another listen sometime.

    he doesn't have a nasally sounding voice at all normally.

    Doesn't sound like the Love Shack guy?  
    So what song should I 'Tube when I get a chance? 
    Something with more of a vibe like Thumbing My Way than Mind Your Manners, if you catch my drift.

    Fiddler's Green was written about Gord's own nephew who died young of a heart defect. they didn't play it for many years as it was too painful for Gord to sing it. They started playing it again in the mid to late oughts. I think they played it at their final show in Kingston.

    this is when they famously played SNL, as Dan Akroyd was hosting, and he basically demanded they be the musical guest. 

    looking back, gord looks exactly like sheldon from big bang. :lol:

    That's a pretty good song, I feel like it could really grow on you.  Definitely better vocals than the snippet I had heard before.  Sounds like 1995, for sure lol
    Of course that's a good thing.

    So far on the crate:
    Toddler T-shirt “Don’t Wake Daddy”
    Day 1) cool T-shirt 👍
    Day 2) HIP gaiter - eh I won’t wear it much
    Day 3) HIP sticker and pin. 👎
    Day 4) Hip slipmat for turntable - soso 

    So far underwhelmed.  Will take pics later when home.

    i certainly hope it gets better than that for that kind of money. jesus. there'd better be something signed in there for those of you that shelled it out.

    Yep, I agree Hugh.  Sadly I’m used to the PJ merch roulette (Gigaton view finder) rings a bell hahahahaha.  Mystery boxes etc...

    All I know is that if I had bought a karate I would not have been able to only open one thing a day. I’d tear it all open in one shot.

    Day 5) Xmas tree ornament - soso

    Hey what’s a gaiter? Out here that means like a thing you wear over your snow boots. I assume that’s not what came in the box? 
  • pearljimpearljim Posts: 1,264
    It goes over your head and covers you from neck to nose. You see a lot of football coaches wearing them.

    Ohhh okay gotcha. We call that a buff lol. 
  • pearljimpearljim Posts: 1,264
    Day 6) red hat (toque), with Hip emblem. Nice and I’ll wear it often this winter but so far these items come nowhere near price paid. That said I love the HIP and this won’t change that.  Just hope the last 6 days are a bit better :)

    I used to mock my kids for watching unboxing videos and now every day I’m like ‘I wonder what came in the Hip box’. 
    Thanks for sharing man.

    Day 7) Zippo Lighter. I now have to go through by my HIP stash as I think I own this. If so this will be my first double. As I do have 10 or so Zippos I’ll give this a 👍 only because if I do own it already I’ll gift my double.

    how odd. i was just looking at my zippos last night (Headstones, Ed x 2), and wondered to myself "I wonder if the Hip ever put out a zippo". 

    if you'd consider selling, I'd be your man.

    Hugh, just checked and I do not have one.  At least not where my HIP stuff is generally kept. If I do come across another one I will definitely reach out to you.

    cool. i know those gifts don't sound like much when compared to the price, but they all seem like very rare/limited items; i don't think anything so far has been or is currently for sale. all purchased separately on the secondary market, it would probably take a long time and money. hopefully there's a couple "bigger ticket" items in there for you, but if not, it's not terrible.

    You’re right Hugh.  I am hoping for something cooler these last few days but thankful for whatever it may be 👍
