Thank you all once again for backing this project, Chill Leisure Lifestyle could not be fully realized without you. A quick recap at where we're at so far: we had a new addition to the mixtape line-up, a last-minute contribution from the realest, Jib Kidder, whose track Fat Cat Snore closes up this chiller soundtrack. Thanks to Ben Hargett of Bargett Box and Dub Narcotic Studio for mastering the mixtape.
The master went out to National Audio Company shortly after Kickstarter funds were received on our end and after speaking with them today it sounds like we still have another couple weeks left to wait for them to finish and ship the tapes.
After some fine-tuning with the printer, the book proof has also been approved and will be printed and bound within the next two weeks here in Portland, Oregon. Hopefully the two items will come into NNP HQ at the same time and we can ship your orders out promptly sometime near the end of the month.
In other NNP news, Stockholm author Kevin Luna was awarded a grant to publish NNP004 from the City of Stockholm the same day Chill Leisure Lifestyle reached funding on Kickstarter. His book Petbooks! is the definitive collection of short fictions written by Kevin from Oakland to Stockholm over the past seven years. The book will be 11cm x 15cm in size and about 150 pages in thickness, printed and bound in Stockholm, Sweden. Estimated to be available at www.nonothingpublishing.com around Christmas.
In BE Photo + VideWhoa Video news, we shot Unkle Funkle's press photos yesterday at Carpet Funkle Downtown (aka Lake Funkle) to be used in the insert for his 12"LP being released on Marriage Records later this month.
And just earlier today, the latest VideWhoa in anticipation of Unkle Funkle's LP debuted on GNAR TV. The #bodypositive video stars 99¢ and Fatha Green and was filmed in the MRC corner of the Gnar Tapes Cafeteria and Global Resource Center. Both Unkle Funkle and 99¢ are featured on the CLSM MMXII.
Thank you all for your patience while we see out the production of this NNP release and expect some extra goodies in your package when it finally arrives in the mail. Expect another update within the next two weeks when production ends and distribution begins and look out around then for a prompt from Kickstarter asking for your shipping information and email addresses so NNP can get you your Chill Leisure Lifestyle package.
Soft mode in power,
