When Mayday announced their upcoming Euro-sized sleeves, I pre-ordered 3 cases. I spent days sleeving my games. I love their sleeves.

They are so awesome, that they inspired me to write a song about them and then that song inspired me to shoot my first music video.

I would like to share that video with the rest of the BGG community.

Yes, I have far too much time on my hands.

As a fellow Canadian (currently in the united states, I take offense to that.

There is nothing wrong with this video.

I plan on singing this song the next time I am sleeving my cards, and eating my poutine.

I bought the penny sleeves. Did you honestly think I'd be able to wait for the premiums?? And if I got them now, it would be even more re-sleeving. I need some time to play the games

The pennies (edited after the next fellow pointed out my error) are pretty damn good on their own. They don't 'puff out' - all of my Dominion cards fit properly into the insert (as the end of the video demonstrates)

By request; the lyrics

SLEEVING

(words by Rob, music by Weezer)

So I’m sleevin’ in the morning
With my new Euro sized card sleeves;
Clear Polypropylene and guaranteed acid-free
Sleevin’ in the evening
My friends think I’ve gone insane;
But I can’t stop sleevin’ til I’ve sleeved all my compatible games

Dominion’s got 500 cards;’ Agricola ‘bout 300 more
When I used to use old Magic sleeves they got too puffy and were hard to store

So I’m sleevin’ in the morning
With my new Euro sized card sleeves;
Clear Polypropylene and guaranteed acid-free
Sleevin’ in the evening
Sleevin to the north and south;
The sleeves were made in China, so please don’t put them in your mouth.

Gotta hurry, gotta get it down; my friends are comin’ down to game tonight
And they like spillin’ beer and chicken wings
Sometimes they get into a cheesy fight…

Oh, ain’t gonna mess up my cards.
Yeah, I got’em all in their guards
If they wanna play Tichu or Fairy Tale
RoboRally or maybe a quick For Sale
Taj Majal or Memoir 44
If we’re desperate we could even break out Battlelore

I got grease prints, on my card sleeves
Think it might be from those French Fries
Not to worry I, I can change them
Now I don’t have to yell at you guys.
Don’t like being a food nazi
I really hated drawing the line
Now you can bring your chili and poutine
Like Eric Burden you can all Spill the Wine

And I know that all my friends are wondering…
Has rob gone mad?
Has rob gone mad?

So you can laugh at Obsessed compulsion
You mock my abundance of time;
But remember my pretty card sleeves
When your own games get covered in slime.

And for those of you south of the 49th parallel, poutine is a French Canadian dietary staple consisting of French Fries covered in cheese curds and gravy. Mmm mmm.

I'll watch anything with gratuitous shots of Age of Steam.

Though maybe you should consider the legal ramifications of such a video.

Cool I have a cameo, watch for that handsome devil in the green polo at 1:28. Don't blink.

The box I am most worried about is that copy of scrabble in too close a proximity that it might corrupt some of the other games.

I think scrabble stresses me out more than age of steam.

I love how in the sped up eating scene, Graeme doesn't move a bit - that's focus.
