REALLY?!?! Weird because in the US you can use a Paypal account. I wonder why they only take international credit cards? If there is a demand for merchandise outside the US I am surprised Hot Topic hasn't tested a few international locations. I would say it could be due to licences but they sell merchandise of English artists, Australian artists, German artists, etc. Hell - they even did an awfully bland tee shirt for PSY a few years back. I imagine they could encourage their merchandisers to get international licenses for the copyright material they use in designs. 

Which bracelets? The rubber bracelets or the "friendship bracelet" styles the had for TOP. I think they were a four pack? 

 

Yes, their paypal is US only... sadly. And I think it's sad that they don't have shops here in Europe... We have other similar stores, but hottopic has a different diversity of merch. 

The rubber bracelets. I still have a load of Kpop ones and always liked those. :alpacacrush:

Be careful about ordering from Hot Topic online if you're outside the US. Their shipping prices are so jacked up that it is ridicuous tbh.

I haven't seen "free worldwide" but I have seen them do 50% international shipping several times a year.

I only live in Canada, and for me to order from their site, no matter what the price is, I would be charged almost as much as my order amount for shipping. For some reason, they don't do free shipping or shipping discounts to other places. I am actually pretty surprised at that, since most companies, even ones that aren't as big, will at least say 'free shipping on orders over x amount of money'. it's really disappointing.

Btw did you guys see the new tøp song heathens? It's really good (like all their songs) .. I'm just annoyed by those hardcore fangirls who are hyping it waaaay too much. But.. looks like fangirls in every fandom are the same :alpacadone:

I've really gotten into Against The Current's new album. Definitely a pop punk band. In Our Bones came out in May and it's still one of my most played albums which is strange because I rarely listen to the genre anymore. They have several EPs too. Glad Fueled By Ramen picked them up. The lead singer is really pretty too. She has glorious doe eyes. :alpacacrush:

They also do a lot of covers. Their Youtube is here.

I freaking love Twenty One Pilots. It's practically an obsession (I'm actually wearing one of their shirts :alpacadone:) I have no idea what I would do without them and they're cut faces and music.
Have you seen them live? I travelled 10 hours to Grand Rapids, MI just to experience them.. We had bad seats but my god it was still worth it to see them.
