All rewards SHIPPED!!

Posted by reverendshoebox (Creator)

Hi, glorious people who backed my thingy!

Good news, dammit! After entirely too many delays due almost entirely to poor planning on my part, big brown padded envelopes containing your goodies are now well and truly in the mail, and will be in your sweaty trembling hands in mere days! 

U.S. contributors should expect their stuff within a week - it'll be slightly longer for those of you who live elsewhere, due to politics and geography.

Please let me know if you find anything missing or wrong with your stuff - we tried our best to get everything right, but we were working very late at night and may very well have done something stupid.

Also - for those of you in the Rochester or NYC areas, I've got a couple of shows coming up:

Wednesday, October 24 - New York, NY
Devo Spice Live DVD recording!

DEVO SPICE
w/ WORM QUARTET

$12 in advance, $15 at the door

CDs! Cartridges! Bonus discs! Wheeee!

Posted by reverendshoebox (Creator)

Hi, wonderful people who enjoy the noises I make!

Things are obviously going slower than I hoped as far as reward delivery goes, but we're on track for a late-September delivery of pretty much everything at this point.  

The CDs are at the printers, and I'm told they'll be completed and shipped to me by September 20th.  Here's a look at the proofs for the final art - I went with the "eco-wallets" because I think they'll look awesome with the masking-tape art design.

Mrs. Shoebox's thumb is mostly-healed, if still a bit numb and weird, and she's plugging forward with the USB Atari cartridge thingies.  She improved greatly on my "shove everything in there and make it work" design, coming up with one that reduces the chance of the cable coming off the flash and uses the plastic in the cartridge to hold the flash in place, so only a small dab of glue is necessary.  Here's the outside and inside view (note that the label looks a bit like it's peeling off in this picture - that's because she hasn't glued it on yet!)  

Kim's cranked out a decent number of cartridges, the bonus discs and MarsCon 2011 DVDs are progressing well, and I fully expect at this point that everything will be in the mail by the end of September.

Thank you all for your patience and support!  Feel free to drop a note and let me know what you think of the album!  Or my face!

Digital copies are out - time to get physical! (See what I did there?)

Posted by reverendshoebox (Creator)

Hi!

So, everybody who pledged at any level that includes a free digital copy of the album should've gotten them a link in their inbox.  If you should have gotten one but somehow didn't, please drop me a note and let me know!  Assuming you DID get it, how'd ya like it?

Currently working on the art for the CD layout, and then on to building the USB Atari carts!  Kim's thumb is healing, and she's managed to finish stripping the cartridges.  Here's a picture of Atari cartridge parts on a towel on top of a dryer, in case this is something you've never seen before:

And here's an in-progress pic of the album art on my glorious dual-Craigslist-monitor setup!

Devo Spice and I will be performing for a certain anonymous contributor this wekend - footage of this event is forthcoming.  We'll also be stopping by WEOS 93.5 FM in Ithaca to guest-appear on The Last Exit for the Lost. The show starts at midnight Saturday night and you can tune in online at http://thelastexit.org/ - there's even a chat room so you can bug us in real-time, and we'll presumably be taking calls as well.

Thanks again for all your support, people!
