    Funny how everybody wants to shut down the major labels and the corporations etc . . . but when put in the position they act just like them. Most music blogs still cover the same artists as pitchfork or Spin or whatever. Because you know, when i go to indie music blogs what i really want to read about is Kanye or about the re-reissue of My bloody valentine records for the 1000th time.


So my spreadsheet/database for song placements is almost done.  I hope to finish it off in a day or two.

There was a problem with the mailing list sign-up form throughout the Silber website.  I’ll be trying to track where …

    also technically aren’t you not supposed to use it for trips and such and only projects? that didn’t stop Amanda Palmer but she may have some weight to throw (no pun intended).

    Also you may have to think about dipping in too much. That’s already 3 no? perhaps you should kickstart each individual bottle as opposed to a six pack.

    • The Bottle Comic Project is indeed the third project (though I’m not doing anything to promote the Puzzle Box one). But with only 86 backers of the first one & only 10 of those backers coming from Silber fandom (meaning they had emails already on Silber mailing list), I’m mainly shooting for the Kickstarter community rather than the Silber community.

      The Bottle Project is individual bottle backing at the $5 – $15 level. It’s not until $50 where you are backing six bottles.

      Kickstarter says it’s not for vacations, not excluding travel. There are a ton of people with projects like “let me take a bunch of photos at the Grand Canyon” or whatever where people just go on vacation & take a hundred photos & put them in a PDF. Hopefully the people doing that stuff aren’t just taking pictures with their phones of their friends, but I can’t say for certain as I think those projects are fairly bogus & have never backed one.

      We’ll see what happens. I think it would be a good idea to get a failure or two under my belt to go with the successes to make me a more rounded human being.

Another Interview & Licensing Paperwork & Reviews of Sci Fi Television

Small Life Form & Dreams

Here’s me as Small Life Form doing my version of Godflesh’s “Slavestate” which has very little to do with the original.

    True story: my wah pedal is used mostly as a volume pedal. Also last night james knocked my JC-120 off a ledge and it fell approximately 5 ft. to the concrete floor and still works just as well as it did pre-drop. (i dunno what it is with bassists and knocking that amp over)

    naught for nowt, i used to have a similar power issue but it was because when i stomped on a pedal, a certain part of the powersupply would touch a medal piece of something else and short out the board.

    • You know, the JC-120 is a tank that I can’t over recommend to anyone.

      Yeah, the thing with this pedal is it’s not acting consistently & since it’s not true bypass it cuts the signal out even when it’s not in use. I’ll post up some stuff with the replacement pedal tonight. It kinda significantly alters the sound when you have a two-second loop instead of a two minute loop. Not necessarily in a bad way, but it makes things feel a little more trancey than droney.

Bottle Ring, Found Art, Dreams

Spent most of the day trying to get work done for other people for money, so not a lot to talk about.  But I do have some photos to make up for that.

So I got the glass ring cutting …

    dream #3 reminds me…. Have you seen Troll Hunter?

  2. GODDAKKattack says:

    no, it’s the one that’s kind of a mockumentary about a guy that hunts trolls for the norwegian govt.

  3. Peter says:

    I’ve seen it. Pretty good huntin’. Never go into a convenience store with Ice T or any other rapper for that matter, it’s embarrasing.

Mead, Bottle, Placements

Remora, Muscle Mass, Irata, Sketch, Bottle Comics, Dreams

    if i remember correctly, FB ads got us a bunch of likes from SA but no sales. maybe increased spotify plays but we’d have to get 500k plays before we can make the threahold of being paid

    • Yeah, FB ads (like all ads) are hard to make seem effective sales wise. But in the end paying about $1 for 50,000 impressions may be worth it for establishing brand. I’m happy with one sale generated that can be linked to an ad.
