Thursday Thirteen #5 — Catching the Holiday Spirit

Thirteen Things ShapeShifter fans want for Christmas:

1. A new album!

2. A tour to come to town, hopefully soon, and hopefully at a time when they’ve got the cash and time off from work to get floor seats.

3. To get to go for a ride with Trevor on his Vincent.

4. Backstage passes to finally meet the band, and permission to bring a camera inside for pictures to prove that it really happened.

5. To have their art picked for a ShapeShifter t-shirt.

6. To catch one of Daniel’s drumsticks when he tosses them into the crowd before Eric’s solo.

7. Guitar lessons from Eric. Years of guitar lessons, even though that’ll only scratch the surface. And a gift of one of Eric’s guitars, too.

8. Mitchell and Daniel to break up with Kerri and Val and hook up with them instead.

9. The collected videos to be released. Or a video of a show. Or any sort of video of the guys, especially if it includes candid stuff.

10. To run into the band during a visit to Riverview. Or, maybe even better, to run into a member or two when they are tooling around their own hometown, looking particularly cool. So cool that the band member flags them down and wants to be their friend.

11. A personal phone call from their favorite band member, asking what Santa brought.

12. A job as a ShapeShifter roadie.

13. To be the guys’ new best friend.

    The lips reminded me of Rocky Horror, the Stones, and the glamour of rock, all rolled into one cool graphic. I couldn’t resist. Plus, the sparkle’s sort of seasonal.BR/BR/As for #3… my words, your vision. Trevor’d sure be up for it! (uh… what was that about my words, your vision?)

    Hmmm…..New books to explore. I will be back to check things out.BR/BR/I am just going to assume this is a heavy metal band. Do they shift when they play? Or is this just the name of the band. Shifting band members would be very cool….

  23. Susan Helene Gottfried

    November 30, 2006 1:37 pm

    Well, the ShapeShifter thing came from Trevor, whose last name was Wolff. Makes sense.BR/BR/But yeah, they DO shift — from regular guys into rock stars. Does that count?

    You should see my hit counter. Other than when my blog and Rashembo’s tried to mate the other day, it’s reaching new highs — and I like it!BR/BR/I hope I’ve made some new groupies today, who’ll come back and visit often and fall under the spell of ShapeShifter (but hopefully not Trevor’s ’cause we all know that’ll involve nudity and adult situations and a large need for clean sheets. Assuming he feels like changing them. Aren’t men usually not bothered by that sort of thing)BR/BR/Uhh… sorry. It’s been a hectic day over here.
