    Default Let's do something special for Noodles for his birthday (Noodles, don't read this!)

    This is NOT a birthday thread!
    I've only been a BBS'er for a few months but it's clear how much Noodles interacts with the fans, both on the BBS and on twitter and in person. I thought it would be fun if we did something for him for his birthday since he's the Offspring member who connects with the fans most often. I don't have any ideas of what we could do or how we could do it, yet, so if you have any, please share them. I wanted to post this well enough in advance so we didn't have to rush.

    Edit: I did just think up an idea, but I think it's kinda dumb. >,>

    Edit after edit: Tori and I did not send PM's to everyone requesting a brief birthday message for the written gift. If you have not received a PM and want to participate, just PM one of us with your message and we will include it. Remember, it will be on a "card" with the others, so please don't make it too long. And write it as if you are TALKING TO NOODLES, since he will be reading it himself.

    No offense to those not PM'd. Tori PM'd people as she saw them get online and I PM'd those she didn't that I know frequently visit and/or post on the BBS.

    Please, share this idea. I'm thinking of decorating my acoustic guitar.

    Well, I thought it would be cool if we could record ourselves saying, "Happy birthday, Noodles!" and somehow line them up, one after the other. See, the drawback is that, depending how many people do it, it could be very long and I don't even know if it's possible to accomplish.

    But I thought it would be cool for Noodles to hear just how varied the fans are, 'cuz I know we all have a ton of different accents and they haven't toured in every country that has Offspring fans. But how the hell would we even do it? See, I told you it was dumb. u,u

    Lots of different ages as well. It would be totally fucking cool if we got all the active BBS members to do that! We should make a thread asking people to send us them saying that if other people like the idea.

    Get more people to do it! I want to make a voice collage

    Also, as far as the messages go, should they just be text or should they be like, a picture of us holding our message on a piece of paper?

    Just put your message in text. We, I mean Tori, will jazz up the color and font for the gift.

    Well the options are limited because we all can do something together just over the internets. And Noodles can receive the "gift" only through the internet too I guess. Maybe it's stupid but it's my first and quick idea, we could make a high-res blank white image, where every active member from the BBS could write a few words, sign it, wish him happy bday, draw something etc...

    Edit: Yea I also thought about the audio thing

    Krojd, I was thinking that, too!

    Now, do you mean like actual writing? Some people would have to take a photo of what they wrote. I know not everyone has a scanner.
