Discospock.com Releases "Harmony",
Its 2010 Festive Holiday Ecumenical, Multi-faith, Inclusive, Religion-Neutral
Gift Wrap with Carl Sagan
Discospock.com is pleased to announce its 5th annual release of Custom Holiday Gift Wrap, "Harmony," in a culturally-sensitive, inclusive theme that celebrates six religions and five holidays dramatically juxtaposed in a field of stunning blue sky. Jesus, the Pope, Mohammad, Joseph Smith, Buddha, images representing Kwanzaa, Human Light, "Robanukah," humanism, and Carl Sagan are enigmatically interwoven in a disarrayed mélange. In a year filled with intense global political and religious sabre-rattling, this bold Gift Wrap appeals to diverse people of differing religious faiths, including astronomers and scientists. During the holidays, what better opportunity is there to come together and ponder our similarities, set aside our differences, and reflect on the meaning of the mystical golden plates Joseph Smith allegedly unearthed in a hill in 1823. After reviewing "Harmony," The Skeptical Enquirer reports: "In a culture filled with fear, amidst staggering unemployment, it's comforting to see a gift wrap that can bring together so many people of different faiths,...and famous astronomers like Carl Sagan."
Discospock.com's history of astonishing Custom Holiday Gift Wrap design began with the momentous 2006 release of "Psycho Kermit" Gift Wrap, which achieved immediate "cultural icon" status in Uzbekistan and received numerous obscure design awards in Djibouti. In 2007 "Wookie Disco" Gift Wrap was released as a tribute to the 1970's and the "Wookie Monster" featured in the 1977 cult classic 11 minute "Star Wars" trailer parody "Hardware Wars." It was briefly featured on ABC television's "Good Morning America": "Although we're not sure why anyone would want to remember the '70's, 'Wookie Disco' Gift Wrap is surely a disturbing way to reflect on the dismal polyester disco nightmare that was that decade." The 2008 release of "Warnings" Gift Wrap-- themed in vibrant yellow-- embodied a year filled with sharp turns, shocking politics, financial scandals, and economic chaos. "Warnings" was stitched into large tablecloths and used during a Hollywood Film Actors Guild conference that addressed increased terrorist threats against celebrities and VIP's. Last year's 2009 Vacuity™ Gift Wrap was designed in the provocative theme: "This Space Intentionally Left Blank, Except for Michael Jackson & Bernie Madoff". Convicted fraudster Bernie Madoff, who swindled ~$65 billion in the most prodigious investment fraud Ponzi scheme in history, and the tragic death of Michael Jackson, both stirred a sense of deep uneasiness in the collective Zeitgeist. Amidst a historic global recession, "Vacuity™" Festive Holiday Gift Wrap imparted both a sense of sadness as well as a "less is more," eco-friendly theme.
Bewilder and amaze your loved ones this year, by using Harmony Multi-faith, Inclusive, Religion-Neutral Gift Wrap: because it may be the closest you'll ever get to Jesus, Buddha, Mohammad, the Pope, Joseph Smith,...and Carl Sagan.
