solarbird: (cracksman betty)

Up early, waiting for my partner and occasional collaborator Anna as she gets dental surgery done – it’s nothing serious, but does involve anaesthetics which mean Anna requires babysitting. Note: DO allow texting (because hilarious), but do NOT allow root access.

This diurnal thing is for the birds.

We have a winner on the review lottery; thanks to 403 on Dreamwidth for the kind notes about Cracksman Betty, particularly the songs Song for a Blockade Runner and Columbia. Get me your address so I can mail you a signed physical CD! The band address works fine. :D

Leannan Sidhe’s Kickstarter project has hit $2500, or 83.3%; statistically speaking, they’re sure to make it at this point. So go pick a level, ’cause at this point you’re pre-ordering. :D They’ve also announced some stretch goals.

And finally congratulations to friend-of-friends Mira Grant, whose novel Blackout has made the New York Times mass-market paperback best-seller list. I’ve read the first two (Feed and Deadline) and have this concluding novel queued up to read today while babysitting Anna. I’d've read it before, but I didn’t want to lose a day, which is what tends to happen with these things.

Have a good weekend, everybody!

It’s been a while, so it must be review raffle time! You can win your choice of one of my remaining ARCs (signed!) or! a download code for the entire completed album! Your pick.

Entering’s easy: review Dick Tracy Must Die in its final release form from the website by end-of-day on April 1st, 2011. The review must be at least 25 words long, public, linkable, and include a link to the music page:

Come back here (to the band blog, Dreamwidth, Livejournal, or the official Facebook page) and comment with a link to it, so I know it’s out there. Winner will be chosen by die roll selecting from all qualified reviews. If there’s only one review, the writer is sure to win!

In other news, I’m still trying to find a printer for the 8-page CD booklet. I’m really disgusted by the apparent state of the local printing industry right now, because this is pathetic. Do you know a competent printer who actually wants work enough to return calls and deliver a bid for 300 copies? If you do, I have work for them.

Oh right, there’s an ARC winner to announce today! Yay! Let’s see what this d12 has to say:


lj:windbourne, that’s you! Please contact me with a physical mailing address! I’ll also send mail to your LJ inbox.

But wait! There are enough entrants I want to draw a second winner. Oh, Magic Dodecahedron, what do you have to say this second time?

Snakes Point to Twelve

Blog of Evil registered user Wildcard, that’s you! Please contact me with your physical address! I will of course also send you email.

I’ll probably do another drawing next week, for March. Today, though, I’m working on that Kickstarter project video to get a CD duplicator. It’s mostly just documentary – here’s what we do, here’s how we do it, here’s what we want and why – all in two minutes, but it has a couple of hopefully-funny bits as well. I’ve already shot the video and am editing it down this afternoon; I’m hoping to get the voiceovers done later today too. I’ll post about that as soon as it’s up.

Thanks everybody for entering, and I look forward to both reviews! Rawk on, everybody – I’m out! \n/
