An Interview You Did With Us (SubWOb WebStore Goes LiVE Today!)

Comment

Though you seemed distracted at the time we conducted this interview, you were indeed the one asking the questions, and we were those who remained in darkness, answering with shrouded faces, and sometimes with flowing gestures that approximated words. What follows is the full transcript of our interview...

Q: Have shadowy corporations (with the express purpose of making available Subjects With Objects merchandise) been formed while I have slept?

A: Yes, shadowy corporations (with the express purpose of making available Subjects With Objects merchandise) have been formed while you have slept.

Q: Can you give me an example of the name of one such corporation?

A: The name of one such corporation is "International Conspiracy & Trade Co."

Q: Who formed this shadowy organization?

A: You know I can't tell you that.

Q: Well... where can I learn more about this shadowy International Conspiracy & Trade Co, and sample some of their wares?

A: You cannot learn more about the International Conspiracy & Trade Co. It is not allowed. Quit trying to trick me into telling you something. However, you can sample some of their wares at: www.SubjectsWithObjects.com

Q: What sort of wares does the International Conspiracy & Trade Co. offer at www.SubjectsWithObjects.com?

A: Oh, you know. The full SubWOb family of merchandise: Books. Greeting Cards. Signed & Numbered limited edition fine art prints.

Q: Cool! So... what else can I do at www.SubjectsWithObjects.com ? I mean, besides buying stuff.

A: In addition to perusing and purchasing SubWOb books, cards, and fine art prints at www.SubjectsWithObjects.com you will also be able to watch enigmatic and conspiratorial videos, delight in dueling twitter feeds from Jonathan Richter and DKM, be riveted by inexplicable SubWOb podcasts (or WOBcasts), and purchase SubWOb original painting & text art pieces. But not yet. At the moment you can only peruse and purchase SubWOb books, cards, and fine art prints at www.SubjectsWithObjects.com

Q: Well why can't I do all those other incredible things yet at www.SubjectsWithObjects.com?

A: Look! We just got the commerce side of the site functional today, so try to be patient, alright? It'll happen. Magically, methodically, week-by-week, things will be added to the site. So just chill, alright? Be thankful for what you've got.

Q: What about t-shirts?

A: What about t-shirts?

Q: Will there be any t-shirts for sale on the site that say "International Conspiracy & Trade Co" on them? I think that would pretty much be the coolest t-shirt logo I could imagine. I would definitely buy one. Probably several.

A: Yes, there will be t-shirts that say "International Conspiracy & Trade Co." on them for sale on the site. But not yet. I mean, consider that it's October 2013 already and we're still trying to get the e-books to work right so we can send those out to all our kickstarter funders.

Q: Some online stores have discount codes. I like those. I like to use them. If I purchase one of the fine, quality products on www.SubjectsWithObjects.com, can I do so with a discount code?

A: There is currently a sale on hardback copies of "Subjects With Objects, Vol I". They are $19.99 marked down from the $24.99 cover price. You do not need a discount code to get this special price. Also, you can purchase a 4-Pack of Subjects With Objects books for a deep, deep discount at $65.00 That's a savings of $34.96 off the cover price. You also do not need a discount code to receive this special pricing.

Q: But I told you that I like discount codes. I like to use them. 

A: Fine. Use the discount code "CONSPIRE!" and you get free shipping till Nov. 1st.

Q: Yaaaayyyy!

Update #18

Books Publicly Available! Plus, Your Chance to Work for SubWOb ENTIRELY WITHOUT COMPENSATION!!!

Comment

The SubWOb engineers and shadow deployment specialists are hard at work creating the new SubjectsWithObjects.com website. What is there now is merely a placeholder of the first (and most ancient) order. 

 However, for those of you looking to purchase addtl. copies of the book for family and friends in the meantime (and what is a meantime, dear readers, if not mean..?) you can visit our dear friends at the www.RabbitRoom.com store...

  https://store.rabbitroom.com/product/subjects-with-objects 

Or conversely you can approach the altar of the faceless, corporate entity known as Amazon by clicking this link... 

  http://www.amazon.com/Subjects-Objects-Volume-Jonathan-Richter/dp/0988963205/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1378394481&sr=8-1&keywords=subjects+with+objects 

 And while you're at it, if you've been mystified/perplexed/delighted by your copy of Subjects With Objects, Vol I, why not leave a pithy little review on Amazon, so the ghostly, sinister (and utterly invisible!) algorithms that govern their search engines will pay more attention to our little book. 

 Expediently, 

 --DKM

Let the Games Begin!

1 comment

At last.

The books, in all their SWIRLING ALLURE of ink scent and tactile heft, have arrived. By the freight load. All the way from Hong Kong. The SubWOb vessel evaded an attack by a John Pony sub along the way. If you had been following @QuothDKM on twitter these last few weeks, you would already know this. Ahem... But since there are currently only 5 followers, I'm reasonably certain YOU are NOT one of them. Yet. THIS IS A SITUATION, however, THAT MIGHT STILL BE REMEDIED! The choice is yours.

The GREETING CARDS are in our possession now as well, already seeming to have POWER TO AFFECT LIVES in unexpected ways. 

The ART PRINTS are en route to Nashville from SNOWIER, MORE NORTHERN CLIMES where wind WHISTLES THROUGH ICE CRYSTALS and YETI CAVORT in their play. 

And the METAL PLATES for the original paintings are due to arrive within the next few days.

What does all of this, you ask, mean to ME, a funder? 

It means, DEAR FRIEND, that FULFILLMENT HAS BEGUN! Packages are already, even now, mysteriously being delivered. If you ordered BOOK(s) and/or CARDS, they should be on their way SOON. Perhaps even VERY SOON! Perhaps even now. 

Signed & Numbered Art Prints and Originals will begin TRACING THEIR UNTRACEABLE PATHWAYS to your doors within days. 

Furthermore, the "Soak Up the Atmosphere" SubWOb LiVE event is scheduled for next Tuesday evening. If you funded at that level, you should have already received your e-mail invitation. If you have not, but hold the firm conviction that you should, please CONTACT US AT ONCE! We would sorely miss you if you were not PRESENT & ACCOUNTED FOR!

FINALLY, the E-BOOK version of SUBJECTS with OBJECTS, Vol I that is due many of you, once thought by science to be the easiest of the reward levels to fulfill, has proved in the end to be the trickiest IN ITS DESIGN CODING. HOWEVER, do not despair, for we have not! Our people are now at work on the de-bugging, as we are MINDFUL that the digital version be as pleasing and seamless (on Kindle & iPad platforms) as the print copies, and we will settle for nothing less. At A MOMENT WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT, your e-book WILL ARRIVE! In the meantime, WE CELEBRATE YOUR PATIENCE WITH US! HUZZAH for YOU! HUZZAH!

2nd (or ADDITIONAL) FINALLY, if your mailing address has changed in the last 3 months or so, PLEASE NOTIFY US IMMEDIATELY. OR SOONER. WITHIN MINUTES. OR LESS. 

Instructionally,

--DKM

Update #15

SUBJECTS With OBJECTS inaugural ART PRINT SET Announced!

Comment

You, the ART PRINT LEVEL FUNDERS have SPOKEN. The Votes have been collected and tallied using an arcane device known as the VESTIGIAL RUMINATOR***.

This CELEBRATORY UPDATE displays the four (4) SUBJECTS With OBJECTS art pieces that were selected by you, the shadowy funders, to grace the walls of your homes, your pubs, your RV's, and anarchist dens.

If you ordered a full set, YOU WILL RECEIVE A FINE QUALITY (signed & numbered) ART PRINT of each of the four (4). YOU NEED DO NOTHING! One day, a mailing tube will simply be delivered to your home, containing THE BRIGHT FULLNESS OF JOY that is your SUBJECTS with OBJECTS ART PRINT SET!

If you ordered only one print, PLEASE MAKE YOUR SELECTION FROM AMONG THESE FOUR (4) FINALISTS, and e-mail     info@SubjectsWithObjects.com    with the appropriate letter designation (D, G, H, or J).

If you would like additional signed and numbered prints, (or if you did not order any but have since RECANTED YOUR UNTENABLE POSITION, they can be ordered at $99 per print, or $275 for a set of four. E-mail for payment details.

PLEASE NOTE: The prints will be as close to 18" x 24" (or 24' x 18') as the dimensions of the original paintings will allow. HOWEVER, if you are choosing PRINT "J" know that the width will be narrower due to the TALL, SKINNY NATURE of the original.

THAT IS ALL for the moment,

Demonstrably,

--DKM

***The VESTIGIAL RUMINATOR consists of TWO (2) WIRES and THREE (3) PRONGS connected to a PRIMITIVE METER that measures INVISIBLE FORCES now widely considered by MODERN SCIENCE to be IMMEASURABLE or NONEXISTENT. But if that is so, friends, then how does modern science even begin to EXPLAIN the FACT that the vestigial ruminator IS NEVER WRONG!!!? THEY CANNOT, dear readers, and so they simply speak dismissively of THE DEVICE in hopes that those of us who persist in our employ of it WILL FEEL SHAMED into SILENCE. 

WE WILL NOT.
