WOW is right.























I stumbled on these gems at CVS. If I wasn't vegetarian I would have had the perfect Christmas present. $10 leather jackets for everyone. You're welcome, Dad!



p.s. merry happy Christmas you guys!

This post made me laugh: every time I see the word "wow" now, I think "World of Warcraft" because everyone I work with plays it. It's almost all they talk about... Kind of ridiculous, really.

And a merry happy Christmas to you too, Jade!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!

Christy Crawley said...

"Wow" that you updated your blog on a holiday. XD
But that's rather amazing! *sigh* were I not a vegan....
Lol, "merry happy christmas" is it?

I got Rock Band for Christmas. So naturally I downloaded every single AFI song.
And wow. I have gained even more respect for you. If those songs are that hard on freaking ROCK BAND, then I don't even want to know how hard they would be to play in real life. You're a beast.

I'm convincing my parents to let me fly to Japan over winter break, because that's when you guys are doing your shows.

I take Japanese, so I plan on saving your asses. Just in case a rabid Japanese fangirl runs up to you and begs for you to have her children, so then you won't unknowingly agree.

I know you can picture that happening.

I feel like them saying genuine leather might have been a lie.
Have a great holiday =]
I hope the basement horse didn't party too hard.

Dilt said...

I love leather jackets, but can't afford one myself -.-
Merry Christmas to you too! And please, please, please come to Norway in 2010!! ;D

Jade, hope the holidays are treating u well. So $10 to own skin of something tht once lived, I wouldn't want it even if was free... On a funny note, when ever my cat Ruby does something bad, I warn her tht she would make an excellent pair of plush slippers.lol. She knows she rules the house...

Anywho jus sending a very merry one to u and the boys!
Much love and respect
Melissa xoxoxoxoxo

I went hunting for a pleather jacket and came upon a nice one, I believe. I had the same issue as you.

Crimson Butterfly said...

merry christmas to you too jad and a happy new year lol i found this pic a long time ago from final fantasy 7 saying "sephiroth wishes you a evil little christmas"and the pic has sephiroth standing on a snowman laughing with vincent valentine in the snowmans body(head first) and cloud with the snowmans head(sorry i can't find the pic anymore but i did save it i think you might enjoy giving that one out as a christmas card lol)

Haras said...

You could buy a bunch and sell them on ebay for 100 bucks each. Because they're GENUINE leather jackets.

And merry christmas/happy new year! See you in Petaluma. Close with The Despair Factor! hah.

Merry Christmas to you too Jade!!

Merry Christmas Jade. <3

Merry Christmas Jade!! Tell Davey that the cds he signed for my cousin (who goes by the name of chris powerhouse) made my day! I hope you got everything you wanted! :)

lbraden said...

It's $10 because it's genuine *small print faux* leather. More than likely :p


Just thought I should let you know, I finally got the newest AFI album 'secretly' from my brother. Very exciting!

I missed you guys at the Tabernacle in Atlanta; you really need to come sometime NOT during exam week :/ Hopefully the next time you come around I will be able to break away.

Merry Christmas and Festivus for the restofus <3

Lindsay said...

Lol what? I think it's a lie. Even if it is real, seeing people in leather makes think of Silence of the Lambs-- in a skin on skin way.
Anyway, I truly hope you had a jolly Santaday, and all your wishes came true.

Mia said...

LOL Aww, that seems like a shame...you didn't buy any at all?
They were probably very cheaply made, anyway...
Merry Christmas. :)

Obsolete said...

ha! thats ridic.

merry new years also.

GermaricanMix said...

wooooooooow. Ya. I think that pretty much sums it up.

Merry Christmas!

Liaautumn said...

I wonder WHY they were so cheap... :S






Happy Yule :)

Merry Christmas, Jade!

Shannon said...

I hope that your holiday was everything you wanted it to be, and more.

(I also hope that you guys make another appearance in or around Philly, NJ, or NYC, but that is, of course, me being selfish.)

Happy Christmachanukwanzayule!

Emme said...

art biter said...

Happy Boxing Day!

Anonymous said...

Jade, you weren't shopping on Christmas day were you? You bad boy :D J/K That was a great deal, but somehow, something doesn't sound quite right. It's probably a good thing you were a vegetarian in this case :)

Emma said...

Merry Christmas!

Namean said...

Still love you Jade

midnightangel said...

lol what a steal!

Hope you had a great Christmas, Jade.

blaqk said...

folkedforlife said...

Haha they're probably 'leather'. My mom bought me a real leather jacket for Christmas even though she knows I'm a vegetarian. She doesn't see the problem. Oy.

kirstie said...

Happy Christmas, Jade! :D

Jamekae said...

Merry Christmas JP! Or do you prefer JEP? ...perhaps xXxJEPxXx?

Whatever you wish to be called, hope you had a terrific Christmas, despite not getting away with buying $10 gifts for everyone. I'm a little disappointed to be honest... I saw that leather jacket and had this vision of your next album being aesthetically and musically in tune with the 50's.

My vision included you playing DtS' solo while jumping over a shark on a jet-ski. Fortunately you're capable jumping extremely high and the shark's jet-ski broke before he could start pursuit.

Awful sentence structures and poor Happy Days references aside, best of luck with the rest of Crash Love's tour. Can't wait to see you in March!

Namean said...

Good you did not buy the jackets!

Charlie. said...

Merry Christmas to you too dude, hope it was full of joy, love and cool shiny things.

Now bring on the new year!

chaoskitten[DF] said...

Wow IS right.

Recession to blame I guess. :/

Shy Girls Win said...

Cool I'm the first one to comment on this! At least I think I am....

Haha! I wish I could drive to places. But I can't /-:

Oh well, I'm not that far away from driving...............

Thebeginningandtheend said...

I don't know if you're aware of the existence of these things, but I'm just revisiting them and in doing so thought you may appreciate these finds if you haven't already. Merry Fishmas!

Are you serious? A $10 leather jacket at CVS? You don't see that every day, do you?

Anonymous said...

Well I agree but I about the list inform should secure more info then it has.

MamaDebs said...

I hope you are enjoying your break from touring. Happy New Year!

talksosmall said...

Haha, $10 for fake leather would've been even better :-)

Happy Holidays to you too!

A belated Merry Christmas to you as well :D

Haha. That's lovely.

I bought like 3 of those. I'm going for the James Dean look.

Late merry xmas. :)oops!

merry christmas too......and a happy new year

Jamekae said...

Forgot to add this to my last post.

I'm not a vegan/vegetarian, but I do try to be a bit more considerate about the world around me, keeping the world in balance and whatnot. Anyway, I've only broken my no leather rule once since taking on this stance (and I've felt guilty ever since) and I told myself never again but now this ultimate temptation has arisen.

http://www.converse.com/#/products/Shoes/ChuckTaylor/111131

They're shiny, they're gorgeous, they're Converse and they're a tribute to AFI's BSITS/AoD era. I'd like to say Sing the Sorrow too but whenever I think Sing the Sorrow live performance, the pleather from that era is drowned out by this memorably baggy clothing article (that being said, I've done many a kick in tight pants, and it's quite restricting, I understand where Davey's coming from):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOAds-41oYw

I trust you were familiar with those when you toured the world breakdancing.

NoiseElectric said...

Why this thing signed me in as midnightangel at first, I have no idea. Anyway...

Keep your eyes on the sky on NYE if you can. Blue moon + lunar eclipse. hehe Blue Moon Eclipse would make a cool album title, no? BAGSY! ;D

Anyway, hope you, the band, your families & your entire crew have a fab new year. :-*

Happy New Year Jade. Be safe!!

Ha.
You know what else is on sale here in Canada?
The Art of Drowning. I'm not kidding. I got my copy for TWENTY DOLLARS, and now they're on for EIGHT!!
Hey, we sent you guys a REALLY HEAVY PACKAGE, did you get it?
Okay, I have to tell you about the postal clerk:

So, I was at Canada Post sending our DVD to you, and the postal clerk (Who's name was Emmanuel, by the way), and he takes one look at the package and says "YOU are sending a package to AFI?!?!?!" and I was all like, "Yeah, me and my friends are such huge fans!!" And everyone else there was just kinda staring at me because I'm totally freaking out, Ah, but that did have advantages, because he put in the "Priority Mail" slot and said it was leaving with the next group.

If I scroll down and find that Allison has already wrote this, I'm giving up on EVERYTHING but bacon.

...

HA!!! FINALLY!!!! SHE TOLD EVERYBODY ELSE AND NOW I AM THE CHAMPION!!!!!! Now, if she dicides to say it she will find it is already here and then she will call and be like "CASSIDY!!!" and I will just say "Who disturbs my slumber?!?!?!"
Sorry, wasn't trying to scare you there. And when you do watch the video, ignore Glunness when she says it's okay to burn the disc because it's NOT. I spent ten dollars on postage. Stupid Canada.

John said...

Oh, yeah, Merry Christmas!!!

Emi said...

Hope New Years was good for everyone :) I had a pretty swell christmas, hope yours was too ^_^

Abbi said...

I hope your Christmas was the absolute merriest, Jade. :]
I think you earned it by being a total BOSS

Shy Girls Win said...

I am never the first to post but it always seems like that... oh well. My dad has a real leather jacket and I hate it. My mom has leather gloves and I hate it.

Leather= Unhappiness to vegans+vegetarians
Skinny jeans+no meat+hairstyling= much happiness to anyone
Love you Jade!

Kiara said...

Naughty little person, you're not supposed to be shopping on Christmas Day, that's so sac-religious, my teacher would kill you!

ashlee said...

If I wasn't vegetarian I'd buy it too... Come back to Denver! I saw you guys for the first time on December 6th and it was the best night of my life!!!
