You know what I miss? Fan clubs. How you used to be able to write away to your favorite band and they would send you newsletters and other random stuff in the mail. Now everything is done through the internet, and the excitement of opening an email is not nearly as great as rushing out to the mailbox every day to see if you received a letter. Plus, I'm more of a tactile person anyway. I like physical objects to hold in my hand, actual pages to flip through and pour over. When I was younger most music magazines had addresses in the back for just about every popular artist at the time and I would write my sappy little fan letters and just hope that I would get any response at all. Some of my favorite bands (or the people that worked for them) sent me guitar picks and post cards and various other things that I still have. I'll post some stuff on Instagram later if you're interested.
3A's membership pack brings back all of those memories of fan clubs and postal stalking. Not only do you get four awesome figures from the newer 3AGO line, but you get a t-shirt, a print signed by Ashley Wood, and most importantly that 15% off discount at http://www.bambalandstore.com/ for the entire year. Membership packs go live January 15th at 9am Hong Kong time for 24 hours only. $190 will get you one and they will ship out in May, so you don't have to camp out waiting for the delivery man.
