Competition for US fans

Big Merch Giveaway Competition

As a “thank you” from the band to our US fans, Green Carnation have put together 10 gift-bags containing three band-shirts, all our CDs and the vinyl box (all signed), to give away for free to the first 10 people that call our tour manager Jim on phone no 919.696.3592 today, and say the code word “Durka Durka” (Jim's version of Norwegian) and your name. Addresses will be sorted out on this forum.

This is for US citizens only.

Do not worry.

As you are giving it away for free anyway, just hand it out on your way to the airport. It will save you the shipping charges and you may get some new fans.

For those that don't know,

this was an April Fools prank pulled on you and I by the band.

There were no goody bags.

I was not aware of what was going on until people started calling me and saying, 'durka durka'.

That being said, it was a funny parting gift from the boys, who are on their way home as I type this.

Ha, well I was the first one to be had by the whole thing. Jim was like "uhhh..what?". Thankfully I didn't say "Durka Durka" when I first called him because that would've made me feel really fucking stupid! I didn't think of it being April Fools as I didn't think Norwegians did April Fools! I won't underestimate them again. That was the only joke I fell for the whole day! However, I figured I'd let the joke keep going so I didn't post anything about it on the boards.

I called, was probably the wierdest few minutes I have ever had on a phone...

And yes, I did say durka durka... though it was more of a "umm... durka...durka?", only to be given the response "Oh, yeah... APRIL FOOLS! But to be honest its on me too... dammit."

It was the only joke the whole day that I honestly fell for.

I didn't get the chance to fall for it. I just had to take a bunch of calls with people I don't know (or only just met at some shows) saying "Durka Durka" over and over again to me.

Glad Mosquito was the first one... laughs. In that we had a good laugh over it.

I got an email from Tchort yesterday wanting to know if the UPS screw up that they experienced was me getting back at them for this.

Nope, but Karma's a bitch aint it?
