Hey, Out of It is now in the iTunes Music Store! (thanks Jesse)


Why it’s $9.90 instead of $9.99 is a mystery to me, but whatever.

Also I noticed this censored auto-complete hilarity when I searched for it:


Oh Apple.

Album release has gone well, thanks everyone! Decent sales, lots of positive feedback. Still lots of work to do, which I am working on doing.

I rewrote the guts of the music submissions/you section and added all the new album tracks and source in there. Still haven’t added all the items I was sent from the new album release, but that’ll come soon.

Some stuff I need to blogs:

Okay I haven’t figured out much of a bandwidth solution so let’s just party. All the source for Out of It is now on ccMixter here. Also there are acappellas on ccMixter separate from the source if you only want those.

Here are the source files direct from me. I pray to the lord my server will survive this:

You should upload anything you make to ccMixter and I’ll list it on the song pages and like… you’ll be part of song HISTORY!

My new album Out of It is (FINALLY) out! Please listen to it! Please spread it around! Please like it! (And perhaps please purchase it!):

It’s got ten songs, you can pay what you want, it’s available in CD, MP3 & FLAC. There’s no stupid DRM and it’s Creative Commons licensed. CD purchases get instant downloads and the full audio multi-track source will be available in the next day.

Some thoughts:

Welp, I had a good time at the CD release party last night. Thanks to everyone who showed up and anyone who jumped on stage at the end there during the crowd-participation part of “Out of It”.

Besides the talented Dave Norris and the Harvey Cartel who played, musicians in attendance were Jesse Dangerously, Claude from The Peptides, TheHipCola, Meredith Luce and MC Frontalot was on a phone in IM capacity.

Various Songfighters and REAPER users came out of the woodwork, which was awesome.

Out of It goes on sale for everybody out there tomorrow night at midnight (EST). Woooooooo.

Photo0131 I don’t normally “web log” my feelings but I’m actually pretty nervous about this whole CD release. I was all “beh whatever dudes we’ll see how it goes, just another day on the grind you know dog” until a couple hours ago when I became like "!!!! HOLY LORD". It feels like my future "as an artist" sort of hinges on it but then I feel that way about everything.

Honestly, I think the neurotic anxiety has been getting to me for a couple weeks but I’ve had tasks to keep me busy. Two weeks ago I was sleeping away peacefully and then I guess I tore at my forehead with my retarded talons. As you can see from the picture up there I managed to put a two inch scratch in my dome. That ain’t relaxed behavior.

The CD release party is tomorrow night. It’s sort of a drag though, you folks who read my blog and have been with me for a long time are not generally in my town so you won’t be there. So that part breaks my heart kinda because I love you guys okay now the vodka’s talking catch you later.

First batches of pre-ordered Out of It CDs are away! Release is just around the corner! Some people said they don’t hate it! I’m nervous as can be!

Thankfully I’ve got a lot of mail processing to do, website and source to get ready as well as rehearsing for the CD release party this Friday, so that’s keeping me a bit distracted.

I had it in my head that I’d write a bit more about the process of getting to this point but there just hasn’t been any time. So maybe you can use your imagination?

Had to get one last week-long sickness out of my system before the album release. Ahhh much better.

The pre-orders are all ready to go and will be in the mail this week! Thanks to everyone who’s ordered one, it slightly counter-balances the release dread I feel.

Also: everything seems to be happening according to schedule. Crazy!

Outofit-cover-300pxThe CD Release Party for Out of It is booked and officially on September 5th at Cafe Dekcuf in the city of Ottawa. Times and bands are still TBD, though I am practically guaranteed to be there and drinking heavily. But you are super invited and hey, you could pick up a copy of the CD three days before the release date! What a coincidence that is!

This will also likely be the last show as a regular old three piece rock band. It’s been super fun, but I can’t resist putting a computer in the live show and electronifying things and making us prone to tech problems. Anyway, I hope to see you there.

finger Well, that was a huge amount of stress about audio junk 99% of humans will never notice or care about. What a world.

The master for Out of It is as done as I can make it be and will be heading into manufacturing tomorrow. After this all I can do is regret. Party time!
