FILTER Good Gift Guide, Day 10: Warner Bros. Special Editions
’Tis the holiday season and here at FILTER we believe in giving gifts that keep on giving. So in the spirit of the holidays, throughout December we’ll be posting our Good Gift Guide ideas for your picky loved ones.
What do you get the music fan in your life who has every B-side, rarity, and off-the-wall piece of band merch from even the most obscure tours (Let me hear you, Zanzibar!!!)? Simply check out the new Warner Bros. line of special edition, direct-to-consumer fan pieces they’ve compiled this holiday season— a list of rare and quirky (gummy fetus, anyone?) merchandise from all your favorite Warner Bros. bands. So, whether it’s rolling a joint with the help of Curren$y’s Up in Smoke Rolling Tray or decorating your own holiday tree with a Flaming Lips Trembling Fetus ornament, Warner Bros. has got you and your loved ones covered. Let the giving commence!
The Flaming Lips Gummy Song Fetus
Problem: You want to give the gift of gummy candies to those in your life, but feel limited by the choice of either bear or fish (and only Swedish fish at that).
Solution: The Flaming Lips Gummy Song Fetus.
Not only will you be able to give the gift of three brand new, never realesed songs—"Enthusiasm for Life Defeats Existential Fear Part 2,” "Steven's Moonbow," and "Squishy Glass"— but you’ll also get to share a unique, abliet slightly disturbing, confectionary experience. Bon Appetit!
The Flaming Lips Hollywood Cemetery Skull
And if brains is more their thing, you can opt to give them the Gummy Skull with Marijuana-flavored brain. Inside the skull is a USB that contains The Soft Bulletin Live, leaving the recipient no choice but to eat the whole gooey mess.
The Flaming Lips Silver Trembling Fetus Ornament
Is your Chistmas Season lacking in metalic feus's? I know mine is! The Flaming Lips have solved yet another holiday conundrum by offering their own 3’’ tall Trembling Fetus Ornament. It comes in a custom-designed box your Flaming Lips fan will be sure to treasure.
Curren$y Up In Smoke Rolling Tray
Here at FILTER, we would never endorse such behaviors that would be considered illegal (in public, at least). However, hip-hop renegade Curren$y is all about such endorsements. Give the stoner in your life the gift of a rap-star endorsed 6” x 7” rolling tray so they can roll with the best of ‘em.
The Black Keys Text Gray T-shirt
A good band tee will last you a lifetime. This Black Keys unisex T-shirt, the most popular Black Keys T-shirt to date, will last your loved one until they’re far too old to be wearing band tees.
The Black Keys Black Mug
For the eco-conscience and Black Key fanatics alike, this Black Keys ceramic mug will come in handy at your local coffee shop in lieu of disposable cups. Letting everyone know you’re saving the planet and professing your love of The Black Keys…at the same time!? Two birds. One gift.
Tegan and Sara: Diagram 80’s T-shirt
Made by Groceries, an eco-conscious company set on providing chemical free and renewably sourced materials, this black scoop neck T-shirt is the perfectly fashionable gift for the Tegan and Sara fan in your life.
Tegan and Sara: The Official Vinyl Collection
You asked. They listened. Back by popular demand, Tegan and Sara have compiled their complete catalog in pressed vinyl. This limited edition, hand packed box set includes Sainthood, The Con, So Jealous, If It Was You, This Business of Art bonus record and, exclusive only to this offering, Home Recordings, which boasts nine demo tracks dating back to the So Jealous era. This reissue is limited to 1,000, so don’t let this one pass you by!
The Lord of the Rings: The Complete Recordings
If Deluxe 5-Disc Collector’s Boxes were rings, this would be the one to rule the all. The Lord Of The Rings: The Complete Recordings includes the entirety of the Academy Award®-winning score. Split up into four CD's, one audio DVD (in 5.1 Surround Sound), and a 48-page book, this Collector’s Box will send your Hobbit-loving friends and family into a frenzy of Middle-earth sized proportions.
