Can't wait for "ALL THE VINYL" to ship!!! Meanwhile anyone still on here John was featured in an NPR article today: http://www.npr.org/blogs/therecord/2013/06/14/191602109/heartbreak-takes-john-vanderslice-to-dagger-beach
Just got my loot today (signed and personalized copies of Dagger Beach and Diamond Dogs). JV, you are the f-ing MAN. I have decided that anything you release from now on, even if it's a 90 minute set of nothing but fart noises, is an instant-buy for me. Thanks for being awesome.
Aaron cats have it hard, we must support them in any way possible!!
James you are awesome!!!
Just received my kickstart! Already blazing it out! Already listened twice, already shared it with the world! Awesome and it has my name on it lol
My stuff arrived a couple of days ago, and I couldn't be more thrilled. Thanks for raising the bar for my (diamond) cats, BTW. "Keep sleeping and eating." HAR!
T-shirt came today. Excellent!
Do we know the time for the listening party yet? Juggling schedules and want to make sure I don't miss a single second. Super excited about this.
"Outstanding work, Vanderslice. I think you've got a real future with this company."
Dagger Beach - thank you!!! Amazing album. Can't get enough; have it on repeat...
JV, I just filled out my survey for both LPs and T-shirt. Just saw that I entered the wrong T-shirt, though. The one I want is the bookshelf, not the library card! Oops....
JV! I got Dagger Beach last night and I'm listening to it on a loop! Thank you for my summer soundtrack. <3
doh. forget it. i found the survey.
hey there, superman. i fear that the survey got lost in my spam folder and then deleted.... so if you want to send it to me again, please do: firstname.lastname@example.org it's just for the CD (+digital deluxe), no tshirt or anything.
Maybe I'll get a survey later on, but for the record, I am a Large ! Thanks!
Another non-surver-finder here - size S please.
Shirt size XL please, as I am not kicksmart enough to find the survey.
Shirt = M
Is this the right place to say so? I read mention of a survey, but never saw a survey. Let me know if you need me to restate somewhere else!
T-shirt = large!
Sorry, got ahead of myself, just saw the answer to my question in the email sent.
Vanderslice! So excited for the new albums! Definitely can't wait for you to come back to Austin on your tour!!! The ultimate entertainer...I remember at one of your shows you even handed out cookies...such a nice touch! Also, idk how Kickstarter works, do we select the shirt size once the project funding ends?
hey thanks heather!!
Chris - I'm super excited, too! I'm doing a little "I'll-own-a-song" dance. THIS IS SO AWESOME!!!
JV - Yes! Make it so, so weird! Weird Vanderslice is Best Vanderslice.
chris i'm excited too!!! i so amazed it went over 75k. i'm really looking forward to writing that song! it's going to be w e i r d.
Pretty excited that we're over the $75K mark! I don't know about you guys but I've never owned a song before.
Congrats again, JV. It's been really cool to watch this over the last month, and it's awesome how hands-on you've been with everything. Here's hoping there's another big surge in these last 36 hours.
hey! thanks for the question,
we haven't quite started the design of it yet (we are just finishing the diamond dogs vinyl)
but i think it's going to be stunning. joe williams, my artist, has a laser cutter and all kinds of amazing
things to work with.
i think it's going to follow some kind of library theme if possible.
thanks for asking and i'll post more info fi time doesn't run out on this!!
Hey John! I'm considering increasing my pledge to get the vinyl box. Any chance we can get an idea of what it will look like? Are we talking a wooden box like some Joyful Noise Recordings releases?
I always prefer American Apparel. They're generally the best fit and most importantly, sweat-shop free!
it wasn't a ridiculous request, you were looking into my future!!!
John- your new 8 second song reward reminds me of when I was 20 & I emailed you asking if you could record a personalized song as a gift for a girl I was smitten with. In hindsight that was such a ridiculous request but you were very gracious in your reply! Now my ridiculous requests have scaled down to quietly wishing to myself for a John Vanderslice WTF episode. I can't wait to hear the new albums.
julio, we haven't decided on that yet, do you have a preference?
Will the shirts be printed on American Apparel, or another brand? Thanks!
we made it to the live stream!
Is anyone else dying for a full listen to the song in the video? I hope it's the single, it sounds stunning.
steven, i'll deign everything for sure. i'll ask you closer towards shipping if you
want it personalized. thanks steven!
Here's hoping I can save up some cash and move up to the "All The Vinyl" tier... If not, I'll be fine with just Dagger Beach and Diamond Dogs. Those will still be signed like the prior tiers, yes?
tim, i'm going to add a photo option!!
Already backed, but it would be cool if there were some photo prints as prizes. JV is an amazing photographer.
So excited to HAVE ALL the slice records! Trying to save up for a house show. would make my dreams come true!
Holy Crap, JV is killing it! He just may be able to finish that basement.
Yes! Can't wait to hear the new Vandersliceness!
I want to EAT that T-shirt design. Amazing.
