Thunderbeard Records will be releasing You, Me, And Everyone We Know's A Great Big Hole on vinyl this spring. We're teaming up with the label to give away a pretty cool prize package that includes records, apparel and a signed test pressing of A Great Big Hole. How do you win? First, like Thunderbeard's Facebook page. Then answer this question: If you dug a great big hole, what would you put in it? The best answer wins the prize package, which I'll choose on Friday. Good luck.
At first thought I wanted to put in something really generic like: loneliness, sadness, depression. Those types if emotions that would really need it from being thrown into a deep hole. But then I thought about all the cool stuff you could put in a hole. Time capsules are a great idea, but who is going to even be around in fifty years? I think that money would be a good idea so when you're low on cash you can just grab it from the hole. Really anything that would just appreciate in value.
It'd be a toss up between a great big magic bean, the people behind the new episodes of community or a series of cryptic clues in great big boxes that will eventually lead people on to follow an eccentric viral marketing campaign.
I'd probably turn it into a bunker to hang out in when I want to escape from the world. I'd run electricity to it somehow and stock it with lots of books, a super comfy chair, a mini-fridge for some adult beverages, a turntable setup, and records.
Pizza. Because real talk here for a minute. We dug a great big hole, and there is probably a reason, and think of all things you can do with the pizza. You can eat it. You can use it to block out rain by holding it over your head. Fold it hot dog style and use it to get water out of said great big hole. Fold it hot dog style again and eat it like a taco, so it's like eating a taco, but it's a pizza. You can hang it in the aforementioned great big hole as wall art. Finally, on those lonely nights you can make love to it... or eat it. You can decide the order later.
