(or “souvenirs I saved, part 2…”)
It’s funny how with the passage of time, we can lose track of some of even the most beloved and cherished possessions and mementos that we acquire over the years. Today, while browsing another Sparklehorse fan site, my memory was stirred about a promotional Sparklehorse item I acquired years ago. And I then realized I had absolutely no idea where it was.
I have a lot of stuff here, and a small house. I am not a hoarder but I have a lot of stuff stashed in storage bins in a tiny attic. So I proceed up the stairs and started going through the bins. And of course, it was in the last one left. But it was there. Hallelujah!
The item in question is a promotional packet that was assembled for theatrical screenings of the short films that were made to accompany It’s A Wonderful Life. Yes, these actually happened. Although I believe it was limited to perhaps two or three screenings. The package consists of a black envelope sealed with Sparklehorse IAWL sticker, which contains a copy of the CD, 5 photos of Mark, and a promotional flyer about the album.
So I have fired up the camera and the scanner to share some more rare memorabilia of Mark. Enjoy…
