It's that time again... 2009 donation drive


Recommended Posts

Yes kiddies, it's that wonderful time of the year, time for the quasi-annual Heavy Harmonies donation drive. It's part of what enables HH to remain free for everyone to use. :)

 

Keeping the site going costs bucks, and as you can see from the donations page, it's not uncommon to go a month or so without any donations at all...

 

I realize that times are tough for everyone, and with the economy being as craptacular as it is, everyone's counting their pennies. Unfortunately, the company that provides the server, the server admin, and the bandwidth, doesn't give me a break because the economy sucks. :(

 

In addition to the hard server costs, there are additional monthly fees for this board and the radio station feed. All told, my costs run about $200 a month.

 

The drive will run through June 15.

 

No great ideas for the prizes, so I'm going to simplify a bit:

  1. For every $5 you donate, you'll get an entry into a drawing I'll hold the last week of June following the end of the donation drive. There will be 5 sets of prizes, each containing 5-10 random CDs. Some will be HH-worthy, some will be complete and utter crap... basically what I have lying around. But hey, isn't it fun getting random CDs in the mail for free, no matter how useless they are? :lol:
     
  2. Shipping and insurance of the prizes is on me; CDs will be shipped without jewel cases to save on postage.
     
  3. At the end of the drive, donors will be listed on the donors page unless you prefer not to be listed.
     
  4. PayPal donation links are found at the top of all the pages on the main site, or if you'd prefer to send a money order, check, or cash (not recommended, but I know some people prefer to do so), you can make payable to Dan Harding and send to:
     
    Heavy Harmonies
    P.O. Box 17212
    Urbana, IL 61803
    USA

Regardless of the form of the prizes, please donate because you enjoy using the site, not because you think you might win a prize.

 

Once again, your support is greatly appreciated! :dance:

With 1 week left to go in the donation drive, things have really tapered off (as to be expected).

 

So far enough has been donated to cover 3 months of site expenses.

 

To those who have donated: thanks!!!

 

To those who haven't: Vee haff vays off findeenk ver you liff und vee vill hunt you down like ze mizerable schwein you are! :lol:

 

So if you haven't paid your bar tab, belly up to the bar and pay up! And you just might win some random and sundry crappy CDs to boot.

 

Thanks!

    • Hold on soldier, I'm hoping that wasn't aimed at me. I don't think I was putting anyone down, and as far as I know, I'm not an atheist either. I don't actually know. I can't stand all this label rubbish and don't have a label for my thoughts on this stuff. Yes, I believe you are born, you live and you die and that's the end of it. But they're just my thoughts.  Anyway, why are we talking about Christmas now anyway? Still almost 30 days to go... 
    • Agree, love that Irish girl type look. Tans are overrated!
    • Only humans were created in the image of God, and most consider that to mean possession of an eternal soul. However, the animals were put on the earth for humans to have dominion and use plus care for them. As for Heaven, we can't know what it will be like, but in my mind it would not be heaven if there were not dogs for me to hang out with, so I expect that yes there will be animals, otherwise how is it heaven for an animal lover? This view of heaven being in the clouds, wearing robes and playing harps is mostly an atheist's invention to mock what they can't comprehend. To try and explain heaven to an atheist is like trying to describe the sky to someone who has had their face buried in mud their entire lives. It's a rather fruitless and usually thankless task. I know atheists have their pile of dirt and nothingness to look forward to (lol). Yes, I am aware that atheists have invented this concept of "ascention" through genetic evolution or artificial immortality as a replacement of heaven in your religion, but I'm not sure how atheists rationalise an incorporeal existence in their concept of pointless nothingness. It doesn't bother me either what you atheists believe, I just wish you weren't so arrogant about your nihilistic mindset and cease with the put downs of those who don't share your belief set. And merry Christmas my pagan friends! I genuinely mean that.
    • Haha. Been decades since I had any discussions like this on the forum and I definitely do not want to revisit, but as my mind is always ticking over I was actually thinking about stuff the other day. So if we (humans) get a fancy afterlife kickin' it with Jesus and God n' stuff, do animals? When an ant dies, does the ant experience Heaven? Does a dog, or a cat? An elephant? Do all beings experience Heaven (or hell too, I guess, if they didn't follow the gospel?). Or do only humans experience Heaven, and if so, why do animals have a pointless existence but there simply must be something more to a human's life other than being born, living and dying?  Genuinely curious, compadre. I used to have many discussions with Mark (metalmaniac777) back in the day and we're still best buds and we even made love a few times. I'm sure he doesn't mind me disclosing that. So seriously not having a dig, but I live to learn. 
    • lol. Really interested to know if they get any takers. Solid wad of cash, $7500. Mildly interesting they still use a photo of the band with Lexxi in it, assuming they haven't replaced him yet? 
    • Yeah, I got a bit of a Degreed vibe from it too. Quality stuff. 
    • My wife had the news on this afternoon and I saw this mind numbing horseshit panic-splashed across the headlines. I thought wow, this sounds alarming. But I heard B.1.1.530 is going to hit even harder. To be honest, though, they called it something else on Aussie news, though - Cock Makers variant, or something like that. I seriously can't remember, but they actually had a name for it rather than this morse code version of it.  Anyway, 95% vaccinated in NSW and we still have to walk around like moron beatshit brains with our face masks on - mandatory - in all indoor settings. Mask rules weren't even this harsh for the majority of the pre-vaccine pandemic. Fuck me I love this cuntry. 
    • Yes, very nice, but unfortunately a distinct lack of "Titties" on show! FFS! This isn't the "Do you want to Bang your Librarian?" thread!
    • Not for me, but have at it bud. 
    • Titties not kitties.
