Hmmm....Coum to think of it, I remember Gen quite enjoying the special little "party-favours" I kicked him down with at PTVs 2007 gig.   
Maybe if I send him a dozen more he'll do ME a favor & kick me down a copy of the 32 Annual Report.  : ) 
Because Im NOT buying either!

After the rather inane and silly pocket knife, I knew it would be all
downhill. Despite flaws, the DVD collection was quite fine, interesting,
though a bit steep on the price, but from there on, just a bunch of
radically-chic crap - frankly, I think they could do better - the vinyl in
the plexiglass goes without comment. Sadly, it seems that greed has grasped
the band by their neck (at least their music still lives up to
expectation...).
