Before sending out the first 60 pre-orders that included drawings (I had asked for requests, but most didn’t care, so don’t blame me if you’re unhappy with your drawing, haha), I filmed all of them, so that I would remember them, or something.
And well, to show you guys, in case you were interested.
So here they are:
Which ones are your favorites? ^^
I let this poll stay up a little longer than expected, but now I’ve changed to a new one!
I’m happy with the results of this one anyway! I mostly have prog rock fans, which is great, because that’s what I want to do! But I also want to make prog rock accessible to all people, so with my second album, I will continue with my quest to make experimental music popular! More experimental/progressive, more catchy/listenable!
Hello! Now I’m back again, and will continue to send out CDs to those who want them. :) I will also make sure that the animated music video for The Star Song is up as soon as possible!
The label has put together a little promo for my album, haha. It looks like this:
Hey, so I spontaneously need to get out of here for a while, so I’m going to Greece for a week today. :) So I can’t be sending any CDs during this time, sorry about that.
You can still hang out with people in the chat room though, they’re all very nice! (Nicar or Hanoi will answer any questions you might have.)
So yeah, have a nice week, and I’ll post a new video when I get back!
update 8 Sep 2011: In Greece, all is well. :)
I finished filming the music video for the album opener, Lonely Starlight, today! So I will start editing it tonight, and hopefully get it done by tomorrow or on Thursday!
Empty couch, but the music will soon be heard~
By the way, a bunch of people have told me that they’ve received the CD now, and that they love it! :D That’s great to hear! I would also be happy if you posted photos of the things you got on the forum, especially if you got a drawing! Would be nice to have it all in one place. :)
And finally, you should ask your local music stores if they will have my CD, because if the demand is higher, it’s more likely that they’ll get them! Just a little pro-tip, haha.
Finally, all the 159 pre-ordered CDs are now shipped out! I spent almost two hours at the post office today, putting on stamps on 100 envelopes, and filling in customs notes and slapping them on all the non-European envelopes. Feels great to have it done!
There are now around 300 CDs still available, if anyone wants a signed copy. :) You can order one here.
Next step: Finishing the Lonely Starlight video!
So, I finally got the CDs to my apartment! Preparing them takes a really long time though, so I’ve barely sent out half of them so far. Will try to get the remaining 100 envelopes ready for tomorrow..
They look nice anyway, and I hope you’ll like the drawings, the secret surprise DVD, the little messages, and so on. :) And sorry once again for the delay.
So, I should have had the CDs in my apartment two days ago, but they didn’t show up. Yesterday I tried to call the customs and the delivery company, but apparently it was too late, so I had to call today instead. After being switched between five different people, I finally got the question: “Did you get the invoice bill on Wednesday?”
No, I didn’t get any bill from anyone! I was expecting one for import taxes, but figured that they’d just let me pay when they came with the package.
Then they started complaining about how the CD pressing company had not included a bill with the package, so they didn’t know how much I should pay. But I’ve really no idea who’s fault this is, I guess it doesn’t matter.
Anyhow. It’s too late for them to send me the CDs today, so the next working day is Monday. I’m really sorry about the delay.
Here’s proof (from the pressing plant) that they really exist in physical form though:
Oh, and one more thing: Because of this, I have not been able to focus on making the new music video, so it will be delayed as well.
