Hey everyone, I'm knee deep in Kickstarter heaven/hell. Things are getting SHIPPED right now. If you get your package and the t-shirt size is wrong, I forgot something, or vinyl got damaged, email me and I will fix it!!!! I'm aiming for an unheard of 9 STAR level of customer service. 

These rewards have all been shipped:

$12 - JV RARITIES - PERSONALIZED CD-R 

$25 - DAGGER BEACH CD

$30 - JV RECORD BOOKSHELF and LIBRARY CARD T-SHIRT (+) DAGGER BEACH DIGITAL DOWNLOAD

$35 - DAGGER BEACH 200g Vinyl

That last category just shipped this week, so if you haven't received them, they're on the way!!

The second I get more vinyl mailers, a slew of other stuff will leave here, including all the Diamond Dogs records to the listening party folks (I love you for coming to that!!). 

The limited screen prints, and deluxe vinyl cases are almost here. If you've combined any rewards with those items, I'll ship them immediately.

More updates soon!!

-----------------------

My man Julio is printing 7"s with "Song For Clay Miller" and a JV rarity on the B side. More on that as we get closer.

I love you all and I hope it's warm as hell where you are.

Update #16

Webcasting for tonight's Listening Party

Comment

Hello everyone, I'm really excited for tonight's Dagger Beach listening party. We'll be streaming it at 8:15pm PST here:

http://www.ustream.tv/channel/johnvanderslice

We're filming a video for "How The West Was Won" today with Jake Wachtel, who did the Kickstarter video. I can't wait for you to see it.

ALL surveys will be sent by this weekend, if you haven't received one yet, you'll get it by sunday night. Thanks for your patience. If you have one and haven't filled it out, please do, I am assembling/packing like crazy right now.

I'll have big news on the shipping front next week. Diamond Dogs vinyl might be arriving early. (YES!)

Thanks everyone!

JV

    I WRITE YOU AN 8 SECOND SONG WITH YOUR NAME IN IT - (very limited, unless they're easier than I think) I can also do this for someone you love (or a theme or idea you love). This is going to be a 24-track analog extravaganza, not some busted-ass demo. There will be background vocals. I can also precede the song with "You've reached [YOUR NAME HERE]" and I believe you would have an amazing outgoing VM message. Plus DIGITAL DOWNLOAD DELUXE.
