TVD's Record Store Day 2010 Label Showcase | Sarathan Records' 'Buffalo Bill' Giveaway


So, I said to the nice folks over at Sarathan Records, try to give me some hook for the big contest giveaway we teased earlier in the week. Something that'll set it apart from the others we do with frequency here.

And they sure did.

Thunder Buffalo's Aaron Schroeder fills us in:


"For the past while I have been drawing this character that I dubbed “Buffalo Bill.” He has been all across the world and even in Outer Space. For Halloween he was a bat, he also once took a voyage on the SS Luv, but it sank…

Every drawing of Buffalo Bill is a one-of-a-kind with no duplicates made. So, the winner of the contest will get an original (not a photo copy) drawing of Buffalo Bill in an environment of your choosing, filtered obviously, through what is known as my brain. It could be anywhere, the moon, alien space craft, your kitchen… the possibilities are endless."

So, put Aaron to work. Where would you have him render Buffalo Bill? The cleverest response in the comments to this post will be awarded the one-of-a-kind, hand-drawn art, along with:

...an autographed Thunder Buffalo CD...

...signed Feral Children CDs of both their 2008 debut 'Second to the Last Frontier' AND their new release 'Brand New Blood'...

Posters for Peter Bradley Adams' 'Leavetaking' ('08) and 'Traces' ('09)...



...Two Two Loons for Tea band T-shirts...



...and last but certainly not least, a pair of earrings hand-made by War Tapes' bassist and backing vocalist Becca Popkin.

You've got til Monday (3/8) to conjure up Buffalo Bill in the scenario of your choice. Let us know where you'd like Aaron to render him in the comments to this contest and remember to leave us some contact info! One winner takes it all...

I think Buffalo Bill should happen to the place where everybody has an opinion that nobody listens to ... the internet.

I'd say either put him on a comment board or make him fight some pop-ups. Oh yeah, and there's porn on the internet, not sure how he feels about that.

I would pit Buffalo Bill against Barnacle Bill in a fight to the death at the bottom of the sea. With throng of crustacious characters cheering them on.

Buff Bill has been commissioned by Obama to help save the rapidly imploding US federal government. Buff Bill has been sent on a mission to the orbiting space station where it is his function to assure that one lone Jackass(democrat)and Dumbo(republican) are to mate creating a perfect union where the offspring of the two will give our government a new hybrid breed of politician that actually will be able to compromise their ideologies for the betterment of
the people they serve.

I think Buffalo Bill should be pictured wearing snorkel, fins and mask, wielding a chainsaw in one hand and a spiky medieval mace, and doing blood-stained battle with an nanomolecular dragon emitting flaming enzyme molecules amidst the crenelated cristae of the inside of a mitochondria (powerhouse of the cell!)

I wanna see him implanted into a classic scene from the Boneville Comic series!

Buffalo Bill would feel most at home spinning on a black piece of wax at 33 1/3 RPM!
