Lining up inside a pod.

Sometimes The Believer has themes each month that come with, well, I think of them as gifts.  Once their theme was Art and the tear-out insert in the front had the most beautiful temporary tattoos. The Music editions have come with a mix CD that makes INDIE 103.1 sound like Top 40.
