Soooo, this is the post where I am going to attempt to articulate how AWESOME it was to give Gabe the book we made and his other presents.

lots of pictures of the book and stuff!Collapse )

OKAY, so, we meant to try and get to the show early enough to catch him beforehand so we wouldn't have to carry everything around, but we had too much last-minute work to do and didn't get there early enough for that, whoops. The show was FANTASTIC, but I won't say anything more about it because I know some of you guys are going to shows on this tour and I don't want to give concert spoilers :)

So after the show we hung out outside the Nokia for, uh, about two and a half hours? Luckily it was an awesome night and there were some cool kids to hang out and wait with! They didn't come out until a little after 1AM because they were having a birthday party in the dressing rooms, which I think is adorable. But! Mr Saporta finally came out, and we waited patiently for our turn to talk to him (we are very good at waiting).

When it was our turn (after not long, since there was only about two dozen people out there by then!), I told him we had some presents for him and I gave him the book first. He was like, "Oh my god, is this a scrapbook?" and I explained to him what it was - letters from all over the world from all you guys about how much we love and appreciate him - and, you guys, I can't even articulate how much he loved it. He was overwhelmed, seriously; there were still a bunch of kids waiting and he spent like ten minutes flipping through the book and looking at everything and asking questions and smiling and thanking us SO MUCH. I wish all of you could have seen his face, seriously. He was so thankful and appreciative and he hugged us like, five times each. It was amazing and I'm so, so glad we were able to put this together for him for his birthday :)

And we gave him the bear, which he also ADORED, and the mixtape, which he kept asking me, like, which Pixies song? Which Sonic Youth song? And I completely blanked and forgot which Tribe Called Quest song is on there so I couldn't tell him, but I told him he'd just have to listen to it and find out, and he was really excited for it.

So, basically, it was absolutely amazing, he LOVED the book, and you guys are completely wonderful for helping out with this little project and helping us throw it together in just TWO WEEKS, seriously. Thank you all so much ♥♥♥

Hey guys ♥

Just got home from the show tonight! I gave Gabe the book and a few other things, and I just wanted to let all of you guys know that he absolutely loved it. It was really amazing. Thank you all so, so much for helping out with the project, it would never have happened without all of you awesome people.

I am exhausted so I have to go crash now, but I promise that I will post with more details when I get home from NYC tomorrow or Monday. I completely flaked (see also: was very busy trying not to cry happy tears) and didn't think to take a picture of Gabe with the book, but I've got plenty of pictures of the finished product that we handed him, which looked AMAZING.

More soon, you guys rock. ♥♥♥

So, I am back until Friday when I leave for Cobras in NYC! Which means I have like four days to finish getting this thing together, hahaha.

I have yet to finish going through my mail, so for those of your whose letters I've received, I'll email you sometime today to let you know! If you've sent me something and I haven't got it yet, I'll just email you when I get it. :)

For anyone who didn't have time to get something in the mail but would like to put a note in the book, feel free to email me (tehbecsu[at]gmail[dot]com) with whatever you'd like to say, along with your name and location, and I would be happy to write it in the book for you. ♥

Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who's helping out with this. I'll take pictures when it's done to show you guys how awesome it is.

Hey guys--

Just dropping a note to say that I'm out of town for the weekend, so I'm not going to be answering any emails until Sunday night at the latest, sorry!

Also, if you haven't got your stuff in the mail yet, PLEASE try to do so by Monday. If you don't think it's got time to get to me, remember you can always e-mail me pictures and words and I can put them in there for you. :)

Hey guys! If you're here, I assume you know what's up, so I'm not going to waste time writing out a long explanation or whatever. Simply: we love Gabe, we want him to feel better, and we want to get this project together before his birthday, so we have a VERY limited time schedule. Basically, we're putting together a care package and fanbook - kind of an oversized get-well card - and send it to him in hopes it'll make him smile despite the suckiness of the situation.

SO, if you want to help out:

1. Join the community! Updates will be here after I send out the initial e-mail.

2. Just fill this out real quick so I have a list of who's participating:



3. COMMENT HERE telling me you're participating so I can e-mail you, because now that I've sent out the first e-mail I'm not gonna be checking the poll obsessively for e-mail addresses anymore.

4. Tell your friends, so we can have lots of love!

I'll send an e-mail out with more details within the next few days to everyone who fills out the poll, and then we can make this happen! :) Any questions, ask in the comments, but I promise you most of the details will be covered in the e-mail I send.
