Lightbulb cool guy wristband/pick pack/stickers/buttons

Hey, what are you guys gonna do with your picks?(it's sold out atm) I dont play guitar, but I wanna do something with them...and I'm not creative. Ideas? Jewelry? Display thoughts? Or....if you got the stickers/buttons...what are you gonna do with them? I just got a new netbook...thinking about putting the stickers on it.

I'm gonna put the picks with all my other picks and not use them to save their awesomness. You can put a hole in one and make it a necklace. I wanted to get the sticker pack and put one of the stickers on my guitar but I didn't notice them until after I ordered the cool guy pack ;_;

meh, to me the only picks worth collecting are the ones used by the band that get thrown out by them during/after the show.

True.
But any "official" merchandise is cool to have, and doesn't deserve a "meh" status.

I got an e-mail saying that it was ready to be processed about... a week ago maybe. It's good to know that no one has them yet... Kind of pucky that it was $6 for shipping, though.

I get that stuff because I'm a geek.
But, you know what would be GREAT?
If the picks were 'Official Tour Picks' (because not everyone gets those picks from the gigs... and there seems to be a lot of people who DO get them... and fucking SELL THEM ON EBAY!!!). When i get a pick... I keep it or I give it to someone I know that will appreciate it and never think of selling it.
...
Back to what would really be great... Official Tour Picks... and one of Taylor's drumsticks... can be without the tape wrapped. They can sell that shit and make bank on it. And people who want that stuff because they love the Foo Fighters can get it without paying some ungrateful tool who wrestled it away from someone who would put the damn thing in a frame and hang it on their wall. And it would put a dent in the E-Bay bullshit price gouging douche-o-rama.
Anyway... if they did that... I think it'd be cool.

A lot of people selling them on eBay? Not sure the term "a lot" is right, I have seen very few for how many actually make it into the crowd. Keep them special for the people that do snag them, though. I cherish mine, def. wouldnt be as special if they could just be shipped to me or anyone else. 29 years old and I was shaking when I caught my first one from Dave a few years ago.

Also, many of the picks that do end up on eBay are from local crew guys who grab them after the show. I remember trying to get a pick at a muse show and the local crew guy grabbed every one off of the mic stand and put them in his pocket, gave a shitty look to those of us wanting one. Guess what showed up on eBay a couple days later? The fans who have waited all day to be at the front during the show are for the most part not the ones putting them up on eBay.
