Holiday Gift Guide: DVDs, Music & Clothing
Now that Thanksgiving is over the next big thing on your mind is likely... buying crap for other people. Weather you celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah or Ramadan or Kwanza or Life Day or some other holiday I don't know about you generally need to buy people stuff. Of course, this being a Venture Bros. site I have some suggestions for all the current and would-be Venture-fans on your various lists. It's gonna be the best non-demoninational holiday season ever!
Full disclosure: any links to Amazon and Entertainment Earth utilize the site's affiliate links, meaning I get (a tiny amount of) credit for clicks and (a little more for) purchases. Both of those places actually pay me in store credit, so I don't earn any money from this, but I do often use the payouts to buy prizes to give away here, so you'll be helping out the site in some way.
Venture Bros. On DVD
Yeah, so this one is obvious. For fans of the show who maybe haven't seen all the seasons, or have only caught one or two episodes recently and want more. Or maybe you just know someone who you are pretty positive would love the show but they just haven't gotten around to it yet. Oh, and then there's the guy who has been borrowing your DVDs for like five months and you really want to watch "Showdown at Cremation Creek" again but he won't give the damned things back. You know him, right? Well instead of being angry with him, why not give him his own copy of season two on DVD? Tis the season?

Venture Bros. On Blu-Ray
For those of you with friends who have a Blu-Ray player and HDTV you may also want to consider the season three Blu-Ray. The picture quality is a lot higher and the sound is fantastic. Not that the DVDs aren't great, but Blu-Ray adds a little bit of extra awesome and your techy friends will love it. No other seasons are on Blu-Ray, and likely seasons one and two never will be since they weren't produced in HD. A complete season four Blu-Ray is expected in the future, though that's not too helpful here.

Venture Bros. Music
For those of you in love with the sweet sounds of J.G. Thirlwell's score for the show, the soundtrack is available in a variety of formats for your listening pleasures.
The Music of J.G. Thirlwell - Soundtrack CD
The Music of J.G. Thirlwell - Soundtrack LP Vinyl
The CD version isn't on Amazon and can only be bought either at the Adult Swim Shop or from Thirlwell's online store (for $1 more). The vinyl is offered in far more places, with the most affordable being on Amazon. The vinyl also has the added bonus of coming with a download code for the remaining tracks that couldn't fit on the record, plus it just looks cool.
The Music of J.G. Thirlwell - Soundtrack MP3s
Steroid Maximus - Ectopia
If your gift recipient prefers his music in digital format you can also purchase The Music of J.G. Thirlwell for them from Amazon MP3 downloads. Just click on the little 'Give album or song as gift' button on the right. We also have "Ectopia" by Steroid Maximus, one of J.G. Thirlwell's pseudonyms. "Ectopia" is worth picking up for Venture-fans because it's closest to the style of music Thirlwell uses in the show. You can also buy it digitally for $8.99.
Venture Bros. Clothing
There's a ton of this stuff, since there are so many logos and such associated with the show, so I picked out some favorites among fans and such (and I also tried to pick things with reasonable stock levels).
Triana's Shirt - Women's T-Shirt
Monarch Logo T-Shirt
So here we have a shirt built to look like the one Triana wears in the show. For the woman in your life who loves The Venture Bros. and Triana (and who doesn't?). And for the man in your life, exclusive to Adult Swim's online store, we have the Monarch logo t-shirt.
OSI Track Jacket
Order of the Triad T-Shirt
For those of you looking for something fancier, the OSI logo track jacket comes recommended by those who have bought it (check the reviews on the page, there are some concerns with quality) and includes a nicely stitched OSI logo. It's a bit pricey at fifty bucks, but the Venture fan in your life will probably love it. For something a little more affordable we have our second logo t-shirt with the Order of the Triad logo on it.
