Remora, Just A Man, Dream

So I just launched a Kickstarter for some Remora t-shirts.  I’ve been kind of wanting to do new shirts for a while, but I have no desire to have them sitting in my closet for ten years so if …

    The space on the one with just handgun and sword and arms spread is good. but nothing says party like guns, guitars and blades!

    the club looks like he’s holding a giant chicken finger.

    Guitar, gun, blade, add party hat or noisemaker.

A lot going down this week

So I got some notes back on the Small Life Form Voice in the Sky album from the friends I sent it to.  Favorable reviews.  & then I did some minor tweaking that I’m uploading now for them to check …

Plumerai, Paperwork, & Dreams

So there’s a new video from Plumerai.  Sci-fi, action figures, & shoegazing pop.  What more do you need?  Nothing.

The show Saturday night went pretty well.  Some kind of problem with the Ustream video so I don’t have any …

QRD, Christmas Comp, Dream

I finally finished going through watching all the episodes of the original Outer Limits.  Not sure what my next show to fall asleep watching will be.  Maybe Tales of Tomorrow.  I tried to watch that Southland Tales movie by the …

    Southland Tales is horrible but i still find it enjoyable but not because of the plot or the acting but little subtleties that make no difference in the movie.

    • I couldn’t deal with the voice over narrator. & I thought the quantity of minor stars that I try to figure out who they are was distracting. & of course way too many characters. & it said it was over two hours.

  2. GoddakkAttack says:

    plus, isn’t the lead role Stiffler from American Pie?

    • I think they’d introduced like 20 characters in 15 minutes so I couldn’t tell you which one of them starred. I ended up watching Woody Harrelson’s Defendor instead, it’s playing free on YouTube right now…..

CD Case, Blogging, Norm MacDonald, Dream

So I did some work on the possible disc case thing.  Here’s a video of me trying to assemble one while holding a camera in the other hand.

I talked to Shane Sauers a bit about the assembly thing (the …

    well in order to even break even you’ve got to either price the CD’s high or sell a lot of copies so just relying on word of mouth or the multitude of blogs that nobody really reads unless they’re looking for their own reviews probably doesn’t help.

    I’m doubtful ads even work in this day and age. I mean when was the last time you went to a website and saw an ad and was interested enough to click on it? Then again not everybody is me and i did run a couple of those cheap FBook ads as an experiment and while it was only 25$ the most that came out of it was 2 or 3 more FB likes.
    Publicist, i’m weary of… on one hand they can do more for you than you can due to their established connections and ability to put the time in and the other, what they do is it really going to help you out enough or are you just paying money to see yourself in print etc. . . . . if you’re still only getting into the hands of people that aren’t going to like your music anyways, it’ll never translate to sells or more people at your shows despite more awareness. That’s why i dunno if that route would do Silber niche any justice. If we only played punk or metal this would be way easier to make connects.

    I still think the #1 way to increase exposure is through live performance and meeting people. I don’t know of a single artist that got popular any other way except for novelty acts like DieAntwoord or ones that had members of formerly successful artists.
    That $10,000 might be better served sending people out on the road if the goal is to sell more music/CDs etc. . .

    i think in the chart on the page you linked Cold War Kids “A&R reps frustrated with blogs creating artificial fan following” is the most important statement on that page. Also that the internet is more or less marketing to people that don’t really like music, who i guess technically are the people you need to reach but being the internet and all these people no longer put worth on music and then how can you expect them to do anythign but download it for free or not at all.

  3. Yeah, I think the $10,000 I would much prefer to set for putting bands on the road. If I had the money & gave bands an extra $100 per show I think that more touring could happen. I mean, it seems like the bands that I’ve known that have made it did it by doing 200-300 shows a year for 5 years. Of course gas was cheaper then & booking agents were easier to come by & show attendance was higher. But I think touring is great also because it brings a band together &/or breaks them apart so you either end up with a better band or a band that shouldn’t exist not existing anymore.

  4. I think the theory of getting a publicist & becoming a buzz band is possibly scoring an advertisement placement or film placement that will hopefully cover the investment.

Amp, QRD, XO, Dream

So I went to this “musician’s yard sale” thing & picked up a pretty cool little analog synth called a Hohner Bass 3.  I also got an amp by Alesis called the Sumo 100 & evidently a 100-watt Alesis amp …
