G’morning, everyone! I hope everyone relevant enjoyed a good First Thanksgiving! It’s another Project Week here in the Lair.
FIRST: I want to set up a house concert tour for early winter! I expect both the tour and the houses to be little. ^_^ You and six friends? That’s good enough! These are supposed to be intimate and friendly, while still being actual shows.
I’m looking for anywhere between Vancouver in the north, south to Eugene. I have sent out mail to an assortment of people already, but if you know anybody or are interested yourself? Let me know!
You’ll note this is along the Cascadian rail line. If I can do this by TRAIN! that’s all the better. Acoustic shows don’t need a PA, which means CONCERT TRAIN WOOOOOOOOOO! \n/ But you don’t have to have a train station.
SECOND: I’ve been brushing up on screenprinting technique. I’ve been thinking about the TICKIEBOX IS MY MASTER NOW T-shirts, and those shirts are really spendy and that’s without me making money! And that’s stupid, because money should flow towards the supervillain. So I realised, “hey, I’ve got a screen and a squeegee, why am I giving them a piece of the action?” Well, okay, because that was fast and let me bring the lulz. But we’re past that now!
What would you guys like for T-shirts? Drop suggestions in comments. It has to be pretty simple, ’cause I’m new at this. I do have kind of a straightforward idea for a basic crew/street team black T I could try first. These images are first-drafts, but give you the idea:
They’d be available at cost to crew and street team and on any T that people wanted to send me. Others? It’d depend on interest. Whaddya think?
THIRD: I’m working on a new song I may release as a web single. I actually wrote a big chunk of it a while ago but it’s been sitting not-quite-ready-for-prime-time for over a year. It’s about a lot of the same shit the OWS people have been on about. I played with it a bit up in Vancouver last week, but I need a more generalised version, and I think I have that now. I’m excited about this.
FOURTH: I’m on the greater concom of the Norwescon Science Fiction Convention, running nwcMUSIC, the music programming event within Norwescon.
We had a meeting on Saturday. Next door:
LINE UP, PRIVATES!
I have, of course, submitted it to FailBLOG, where you may vote. Enjoy!
