Tips for the hunt - GISHWHES

1.       Do not throw out any drink containers be it milk or soda related.. these are building materials and/or fashion materials. The same goes for cereal boxes, or basically anything that holds things.

image

2.       Do pre-wash building materials that held food… ants are not “in” fashion this season, no matter how brave or little they are.

image

3.       Visit your local thrift stores and take a mental inventory of what they have so once the list drops you can split up forces and gather supplies if they aren’t things you can borrow or find.

image

4.       Get lots of sleep. You’re going to miss out on a lot of sleep for GISH week due to either excitement, long craft nights, or sheer panic.  

image

5.       Have/buy/beg for/borrow/make/steal a sock monkey hat. If anything… to have a sock monkey hat.

image

6.       Practice your drawing skills. The better you are with a pencil = the better you are with a mustard bottle.

image

7.       Check your camera equipment before the list drops. Use the best lighting and camera you have available for photos because quality counts.

image

8.       Know where to get kale locally and in large quantities. Or better yet, get your garden planted in time for all the kale you can fit. 

image

9.       Don’t have a garage sale before gish, because you will no doubt sell something that would have come in hand majorly and be pissed for the whole week about it.  

image

10.   If you need to have a garage sale after list drop to afford things like sky diving Fridays are usually the best day for garage sales. Seriously dude. Fridays are awesome for garage sales. At least in California anyway.

image

11.   If you don’t drive. Get all the public transport routes available. Study that shit.

image

12.   Don’t be bitter at friends for not joining, they aren’t as brave as you.  

image

13.   Go through past years lists and sketch out what you would have done for those items to practice. Make supply lists for each sketch.

image

14.   Garage sales are craft/hardware stores but much cheaper and people tend to curb or throw away awesome supplies at the end of the day. Just sayin’.

image

15.  Your teammates need you to be strong. Do the best to your abilities and make new friends in the process. 

image

16.    Have a specified area for your workshop if at all possible. Tell your parents or roomates or significant other that the “____” is off limits this week. Be it the garage, backyard, or wherever else you could work.

image

17.   Having a pre list drop party is a great way to get to know everyone on the team, but a post list drop hangover is to be avoided if at all possible.  

image

18.   It never hurts to have materials on hand to make a pie.

image

19.   Make a list of your contacts. The person you know with a horse ranch, the cousin that has a big veggie garden, the coworker with a monster truck, your bf’s sister who is the manager of a library, the weird cat lady on the corner who trains her cats to do circus tricks, the friends mother who runs a youth camp.. the more resources you have and the more you are aware of them and their wiliness to help the better off you may be.

image

20.   Stock up on caffeine.

image

21.   You may be run down, ragged, raccoon eyed and ratty haired, but have clean up stuff handy so you look good in those pics. Unless the hunt item has something to do with looking run down, ragged, raccoon eyed with ratty hair.. then, work it girl!

image

22.   Build a facebook group for easy communication with your team. Be sure its private.

image

23.   Tumbler, twitter, and the gishwhes chat are good places to recruit for your team, but be aware that thousands of other people know that too. Don’t spam, and start asap.

image

24.   If you call in sick for the week, you’ve lost a resource. If you take the time off work legitly, the job may allow you to do some ridicules thing there for your hunt items.

image

25.   Designate ONE person to do the uploaded of the hunt items. If need be put submissions to a vote so nobody gets too upset

image

27. Realize, that no matter how prepared you think you are. You are not prepared.

MISHA WHERE THE FUCK WERE YOU FILMING?!

Le site for those who interested: http://greatestinternationalscavengerhunttheworldhaseverseen.com/

JUST LISTEN
  • JUST LISTEN
Play

BACKSTORY: YOU MET MISHA AT A PARTY, YOU GOT HOME TO THIS VOICE MESSAGE AND YOU’RE AUTOMATICALLY TORN BETWEEN STEREOTYPICALLY WAITING FOR A FEW DAYS AND CALLING HIM RIGHT AWAY BECAUSE HE’S SUCH A CUTE LITTLE ASS AND YOU COULDN’T RESIST BECAUSE IT’S OBVIOUS THAT HE LIKES YOU AND THAT YOU LIKE HIM.

If you want GISHWHES to be a Union, reblog this post.

NO LIKES. 

Let’s work together on this one - it only works if the majority of GISHWHES participants WANT to form a union.

if you do want Gishwhes to be a union, reblog this post. I will compare votes after.


THE RULES DON’T SAY YOU HAVE TO BE APART OF THE BARGAINING UNIT, AND BY VOTING, YOU ARE HELPING COMPLETE THE ITEM.

THERE IS NO OTHER WAY TO DO THIS ITEM(that I thought of) WITHOUT INTERPRETATION.

The bargaining unit will be Team Gishminions, who run the Free Jayne Now project.

We are going to bargain for the release of the Prisoner of Gishwhes Tower, since we have no wages. 

In adulthood opportunities for wonder are curtailed. We often unwittingly sign on to a set of interpretations, rules for behavior, and ideas about our world and ourselves. We go into a shopping mall, pay the cashier, and leave the store. We know how the interaction will go; we’re on autopilot. And decades from now, when we lie breathing our last breaths on artificial respirators, we may wonder:

“What was that? Was that a life? Was my life something that I did or was my life something that was done to me?”

LAST UPDATE: 11/13: Hairybumble Riddles: Thinktank Thread

UPDATE: 11/13 The TUMBLR has not been unlocked but someone apparently got a sneak peak at it’s contents…

What We Know

  • Hairybumble is giving us clues to what CWNBTS is
  • He’s tweeted only twice - Nov 6th and Nov 11
  • Hairybumble’s Twitter was created on September 25th. The same day Maison Marie was born. 

Tweet #1: Location, Location, Location

I shall meet you where they buried them. And tell a tale of horror and chaos. Come if you must… 

FAR MORE LIKELY: We’re talking about Stanley Park/Deadman Island. See #3. 

Could he be talking about Stull Cemetery  Lawrence, Kansas, where Lucifer, Michael, Adam and Sam were buried? Or is it Christmas film related? Let’s take the Snow Miser on the front image on the website as a clue. Suggestion: Let’s look into The Year Without a Santa Claus, that one about Jack Frost, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, and even(ick) the Miser Brothers Christmas. 

UPDATE: msirenadler dug around on Google and found at least two relevant results. 

This quote from The Fierry Cross(scene takes place in Scotland):

"He took three bars of the gold from one of the chests, and gave them to me. I hid them under the seat of the coach; he and the groom carried the chests awa to the wood - I didna see where they buried them."

This quote from The Flock(2007, this is half of the dialogue - someone could further investigate perhaps?)

  • she and Paul were caught.

  • 00:16:44 Tried to get her to confess,

  • 00:16:46 take me to where they buried them.

  • 00:16:50 I want to give their folks some peace.

  • 00:17:00 I’ve always suspected their bones

 Libraryghost gave us the following tidbit, although I have no sauce for it since I didn’t GISWHES last year(will be going to find sources):

Didn’t they make a little grave for Cas last year at the Pasadena location? “They” (gishwhesians) buried “him” (Cas). Misha and Miss Jean Louis were both there. 

Could the location be DEADMAN ISLAND?

Tweet #2: Who?

I’m told another shall join the him. She who was with him when it happened. All shall hear and see this tale. Some shall talk. I shall rule.

"The" him? Is this a typo? It places a lot of significance on "him". If we take Him to be Misha Collins and She to be JL, we can read it both of them together like this. 

I shall meet you where Misha Collins and JL buried them. And tell a tale of horror and chaos. Come if you must… I’m told another shall join The Overlord. JL, who was with him when it happened. All shall hear and see this tale. Some shall talk. I shall rule.

Okay. So if that’s the case… Where did the ‘burying’ occur? Was it, indeed, as someone suggested, something that happened at the Vancouver meet up? Who was buried and where? Or maybe not who but what ?

We must FIGURE OUT THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE ‘I’ AND THE ‘THEM’. I believe this is key to connecting Misha and JL to the riddle.

Item #3: Website

http://christmaswillneverbethesame.tumblr.com/

If we assume that the keycode is the location… we need to solve the riddle to get into the website. 

The CWNBTS Password Attempt Master Thread 

Possible screencap from malevolentmango! I’m waiting for her to confirm how she got it just to be err on the side of Super!Accuracy but everything looks about right. If we assume that this screencap is the real deal and was taken before the password protection went up, the coordinates come out to Stanley Park, Vancouver. 

What happened in Stanley Park?

Located near Stanley Park is Deadman’s Island.

msireneadler found this quote from the wiki on Stanley Park: "Deadman’s Island (properly called Deadman Island on official charts and maps) located in Coal Harbour was once used a burial island, possibly a reason for its macabre name."


No but for real, GISHWHES has actually changed my life. I suffer from some really heavy anxiety and depression, and let me tell you, if you asked me last month if I would approach someone unfamiliar, I probably would’ve laughed and said ‘NO!’. But in the last week, I’ve gone out publicly dressed as a rooster, struck up a conversation with a homeless guy, come out as a lesbian to my parents, hugged random people, asked around for materials, and just generally done some really weird shit that I’d never thought I’d have the courage to do.

I mean shit, I can barely order a hamburger from McDonalds. But I’ve felt something shift a little. My attitude isn’t so negative anymore. And you know what? Fuck what people think. If they they I’m strange, then so be it. So seriously, thank you GISHWHES.

GISHWHES

GUYS

I’m still short a lot of people for my team! If any of you are interested in participating or are participating for GISHWHES and still need a team, please contact me

We Demand To Be Taken Seriously

Team Gishminions and Team Superwholockers Union Declaration, which was sent under the header “We Demand To Be Taken Seriously.” We were both trying to collect sigs so we teamed up because a Union = all of us, together, emailed from your union reps at Gishbargainingunit@gmail.com. Email with any and all union concerns, folks. We are here to represent all of us, including you and ourselves.
