(I’ve started a DFTBA Records newsletter talking about what’s going on each month and highlighting new/awesome/etc. stuff available. I used to write newsletters very early in my writing career, and now I get to do it for a company I love and believe in, where your purchases support many made-of-awesome people around the world, from painters in Malaysia to Internet heartthrobs living in London. You can sign up for the newsletter on the homepage at dftba.com. Below is this month’s installment.)
I’m John Green and this is the DFTBA.com newsletter, which comes once every month, except for the months we forget about. It’s been a quiet month here at your friendly neighborhood e-tailer, and by quiet I mean INSANE. The DFTBA warehouse looks like a grocery store the day before a hurricane: You’ve ransacked the shelves, friends, and we are grateful for it. So while you’ll certainly find some items out of stock, we still have many wonderful things that make excellent holiday gifts, or also non-holiday gifts.
(Side note: If you live in the US, orders placed now will still arrive before Christmas. If you do not live in the US, well, your men’s national soccer team is probably better than ours, so that’s something.)
So what DFTBA item should you get for the awesome person in your life? Don’t worry. I have some suggestions.
First, we have JEWELRY! Longtime nerdfighter and typography fan Karen Kavett has made her trademark ampersand necklaces available to the world. Each necklace is handmade by Karen, and they are beautiful. If you are not inclined toward necklaces, there is also a first-rate keychain.
But maybe you are looking for SOMETHING AUTOGRAPHED BY ME. Fear not! Several of Mei Lee’sbeautiful posters of quotes from my books are currently in stock, and two—If You Don’t Say the Honest Thing and More Than a Person—are available with my thoroughly unrare but totally authentic autograph.
If you’re looking to DECORATE SOME WALLS without autographs, check out Keep Calm and DFTBA, the beautiful Crash Course World History posters, or Make Your Own Charlie McDonnell.
If you’re looking for PERFECT INEXPENSIVE GIFTS FOR YOUR NERDFIGHTER FRIENDS, check out the beautiful nerdfighter lapel pins, designed by my brother. These need not be pinned to lapels, incidentally. They can also be pinned to backpacks and non-lapel clothing items.
If you’re looking for PHYSICAL RECORDINGS OF MUSIC YOU CAN HOLD IN YOUR HAND, let me recommend Mike Falzone’s new CD, Eddplant’s “Nothing to Worry About,” and my brother’s “Ellen Harcastle.” Also, two DFTBA compilation CDs, “Volume 3" and "Taking Back the Covers" are both currently 50% off.
And lastly, if you’re a fan of CLOTHING ITEMS, some sizes are available of Rhett and Link’s Rub Some Bacon On It, the Trippy family’s CTFxC Is for Haters, and Chewie for President.
As always, thanks for supporting DFTBA Records and our artists. It’s been an amazing 2012. Oh and hey while I have you here, make sure you’ve signed up for the mailing list at projectforawesome.com, because the p4a starts a week from today! And as always if you have questions or comments, you can always reach us at dftbarecords -at- gmail.com.
