I have a box full of goodies (related and non-related to Blind Melon) that I will be sending someone. Once this person receives the box, they will take out whatever items they like and put in the same number of new items. They will then mail the box to the next person on the list and so on til the last person mails it back to me
I think this will be a good way for us to give each other gifts without really spending a lot of money. I recommend giving out your own belongings or even making things instead of buying them, but of course feel free to do as you wish. 90% of the things I put in the box were things that either I had extra copies of (such as a spare copy of relix magazine ft. Blind Melon), or things I love but want to share with other people (like my copy of the book "The Alchemist") or even random things I just dont use anymore (scarf, hat).
Anyway, I brought up the subject on our last Yahoo conference and Sonya was the first to show some interest so I'm mailing it to her and Greg first. Barb also wanted to participate, so I guess we could organize it to where once the box gets shipped out to Europe it goes through all the overseas melon's houses before returning to America, it would probably be way cheaper for everyone.
Remember, this is a box so the cost might be a little high to mail. Please remember to check your finances before you get the box so it won't be stuck anywhere. I'll let you guys know how much I paid to ship to Sonya so you can have an idea but keep in mind the weight will vary as different items get thrown in there.
Hmm, what else? I guess try to have the items ready before you get the box so we can get it to everyone quick and enjoy!!
So who wants to participate? Any questions?
PS: ALWAYS come back to this thread and post when you receive the box and when you ship it to the next person so we dont lose track of it
Perhaps a cheaper way these days would be to use the Priority Flat Rate boxes for those in the US. (if this were started up again). Like the commercial says, "No Weigh!". If it fits, it ships. www.usps.com/prices/priority-mail-prices.htm

Can we get an update on the mailing list and location of this 2nd box as well since box #1 is likely still with Elva according to this thread? Where do we all stand and where is the last box? Thanks for any info...
What keeps you from popping too many pills? Don't tell me it's all your unpaid bills....oh but so what if ya did?
Guys, I still have swapbox #2 and I am so sorry it's been so long! I just got busy/distracted/forgot all about it. I do plan on starting this back up but it won't be for another couple of weeks probably because I have no days off coming up before I leave for Bonnaroo (YAY!) so it'll have to wait until I get back (hopefully I can pick up some cool stuff there). I was thinking though, should we start another thread and with it another list? A lot of the people on the list never get on the forum anymore or deleted their accounts altogether. It would just take too long to try to contact whoever is next in line and wait for a response of whether they are still interested and to get an address. What do you all think?

Ok so once I am back from the roo I will start another thread and we can go from there.
Awww Lee, I would say don't worry about it, we'll all pitch in but that hasn't worked very well in the past Maybe if we started an European swapbox? I'm not sure there are enough European melons willing to participate but it would be something to think about!
patzeller: ive seen the band in MN in 2015, Denver (home) in 2016 and last night in Chicago. Despite Brad missing, the bands chemisty was the best I’ve ever seen. Awesome awesome show. Guess I’ll be heading to Edmonton in June!

jaakko: Hi there! I´m new here! Straight to the question... Is there any possibilities that Blin Melon would tour somewhere in europe someday? I need to see and hear my all time favourite band live before I die. Do I need to fly to U.S.A?

crobar: Anyone know who played the harmonica lead in the song "change" at woodstock '94?

crobar: If you watch the video on youtube for "Change" at woodstock '94, a dude is welcomed out on stage to play the lead harp. Shannon thanks him but you can't hear the name. The guy killed it and I'd like to know who he is/was. Any help is appreciated.

lisa: Blind melon take me back to a really happy time of leaving school and having the world at my feet. I am about to watch the doc. I am looking forward to seeing what the band thought of history being made and the creation of timeless music. RIP Shannon

blindmango: Hi, I'm looking for anyone with info on the promotional Soup Can from 1995. How rare are they? How much do they go for? What was in side? I cant find anything that confirms the contents or special and surprising promotional ingredients. Thanks
