Merry Christmerch & Seasons Giftings!

Our tree is up, stood proud in a gold woven pot and adorned with bright white fairy lights, it’s safe to say that it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas up in MM Towers. This time of year is met with mixed emotions but the overarching win is our love of spending time with awesome people, awesome beers and Rock Band/Let’s Dance 2014/Disney Infinity (delete as appropriate).

We’re lucky enough to genuinely want for very little and, at the risk of sounding trite, take the most pleasure in picking out something to make our loved ones smile; those special surprises that even the lucky receiver didn’t know they wanted but will cherish for a lifetime. So in the heart warming spirit of giving and receiving stuff that’s not shit, Santa Baby, these are some of the treats we’d love under our tree please.

All Blogs Post The Same Stuff Tee, with love from American Apparel via Fancy.com
This tee gave me a right little giggle. An oldie but a goodie, this white American Apparel tee shames copycats, fakers and downright Tumblr bores regurgitating the same old nonsense. If nothing else we hope this shirt’s message is the antithesis of our darling website…

New York Burger Map, with love from Herb Lester Associates
With an impending big birthday trip to the Big Apple on the horizon, this burger map – and pretty much any of the sublimely crafted compositions from Herb Lester Associates- will see Tom & I filled to the brim with this all state staple. Of course, we’ll keep fingers crossed at least one veggie patties in the 41 options. Pass the meat-free manna and take us on that gastronomic, boozy and literary journey of the cities best boroughs.

Pop Punk Christmas Sweater, with love from New Found Glory
After an astonishing weekend proving once and for all that pop punk ain’t dead, New Found Glory have avalanched into the lead of the Christmas Jumper stakes with this snowflake snuggler. It surely is the most festive of them all.

The Entertainment Flask, with love from Ink Whiskey
Childhood nostalgia gets the mature treatment thanks to Ink Whiskey. Duck Hunt won our hearts back in the 90’s and with the ability to fill the cartridge to brim with our favourite festive tipple, we are dead set on this pocket hangover.

LomoInstant Sanremo, with love from Lomography
Trips, gigs and parties are instragrammed to the max nowadays. Surely though, nothing can every beat the joy of a physical photograph? Especially one that lands in your hand mere seconds after the moment has been captured. Watch this space for our world of instants being retrospectively revolutionised. (Please Santa!)

Eco Friendly Socks, with love from Cuipo & Friends
Ah, the sock: that obligatory filler, and favourite with Nans and clueless Papas the world over. This humble toe cosy has had a makeover leading to cooler and greener pastures new with thanks to Cuipo and all our favourite bands. Weezer, Flogging Molly, Every Time I Die, Vandals, While She Sleeps, Young Guns and friends all make up Cuipo’s current on sale alumni alongside sold out styles from Paramore, Alkaline Trio, Dillinger plus too many more to mention, make staying warm and being cool skip along hand in hand.

DonBrewco, with love from Don Broco
Nothing satisfies the pallet like a crisp, steamy brew and it is possibly the worst kept secret in the world that MM loves tea. Like, seriously loves tea. Don Broco’s merch-overed brand of tips plus mug combo has our eye as one primo stocking filler. Who wants to place bets on the first band to bring biscuits to the table?

Cruiser, with love from Crosley
We’ve been dreaming not just of a white Christmas, admiring the snow glistening on the fields and pavements outside while we enjoy a nice glass of Mulled Wine but of a fittingly handsome turntable to spin our burgeoning record collection on. Crosley’s all-in-one builds are perfect for big city living, and despite the rainbow of colour on offer nothing is more luxe than black leather or suede. Sign us up.

Unconditional Love 7″ Picture Disc, with love from Against Me!
Two reasons, and two reasons alone…
1. Against Me!
2. See Above.

Intergalactic Moon Space Crewneck, with love hate from WolfMask
The Tsar of sarcasm, irony and self loathing strikes gold with his yes-it-comes-in-black crewneck. It’s got skulls on it. It’s on the list.

Thanks in advance for the showering of gifts/beers/fun. Merry Christmas to you all! x

From CharlaVail’s tumblr: “Halloweeny! I requested the designs be removed from the faces out of respect for cultural appropriation.”

Paramore Launch Online Exclusive Merch Boxsets

In the midst of a European tour they may be but Paramore have just dropped two brand new, limited edition merch boxsets into their online store.

There are two Declare Boxsets to pick from, including a Guys boxset with a unisex t-shirt and also a Girls boxset, both of which are exclusive to Paramore’s official store and packed with some limited edition merchandise.

First off, what do you get?
Inside the girl’s boxset:
Girls Declare T-Shirt, Written On You Tote Bag with hot pink Kiss print (we love this!), teal Declare button badge, Bar Necklace, and 3 Bars Wristband.

Inside the guy’s boxset:
Guys Declare T-Shirt, Skull & Bars three patch set (we love this!), Teal Declare button badge, Bar Sunglasses, and 3 Bars Wristband.

We have to admit that silicone bracelets aren’t really for us but it’s definitely an interesting take on the classic merch boxset especially with the addition of more fashion items for girls – and by fashion we mean no ill fitting, hip scraping, capped sleeved, “girlie” fit t-shirts. Renowned as they are for their relationship with their fans, it’s really no surprise that Paramore have taken another great step and created something with their fans at the forefront and we think that is pretty darn cool.

For us, the cute kiss print tote & well-fitted t-shirt, patch set, unisex tee and sunglasses are the perfect treats for any Paramore fan.

Pre-order your Declare boxset now for a cool £49.99 from the official Paramore online store. Or check them out on Fancy.com.
