Grasshopper Sent Me a New Year's Card

About a year ago I ordered, at great expense, the Shadows of the Damned Soundtrack from Grasshopper. Today I received a strange card.

From any other company this would be mildly irritating.

Cool, I guess.

Also, why would it mildly irritating?

Because if you get a card from a business, 99% of the time it's because they want you to buy something.

That's really cool. Plus the dragon's eyes look like boobs.

Did you get this today? If so, that card took ages to get to you since, you know, new years is actually old news already. Like, so 8 days ago omgosh

Man, that is one cool card. I kinda wish I got one

@awesomeusername: I didn't get the mail yesterday...so it might be 7 days late. And you know, it came from freaking Japan. The CD also took ages to get here.

And I only got Christmas cards from my insurance company and my gym.

Apparently this is a thing in Japan. It was mentioned briefly on the 12/28 8-4 Play podcast. Some of these are pretty neat.

@nintendoeats: I know, I was being dumb. Also, what's a "Japan"?

Yup, me too. I ordered that same soundtrack and a shirt from them. It's currently sitting on top of my Akira Yamaoka albums.

Grasshopper were the only ones that sent me a card during the holidays. ;_;

@awesomeusername its a pan that you use to cook affirmitive slang.

@Ghost_of_Perdition you may or may not know that there is a sampler out there with more tracks on it. I only found out recently. But dude, is that OST not amazing?

That is one sweet looking card.
