ohmigawd mike that's so awesome! can't wait to show u our new shit. been kicking ass while u were gone!!!
all the shit for casa is NUTS!
tell evan or ethan or elton or whatever his name is to call usd for more posters!
so glad the band and promoter liked em!
i thought the promoter hated the posters and us..
but i guess not
AND the promoter did like them (see post in forums), and they did all go up and got given to bands, etc. This was a problem with computers, miscommunication, and genuine ignorance on the part of others. Not my fault as much as I'd like to blame myself. I was the one that got the seripop kids to do the poster, and shit didn't exactly work out...BUT!
The poster is smashing, and will sell, and IS selling. Money will be recouperated (sic?), and this is a good thing. Anyway...yeah, sorry to Chloe and Yannick.
I sold 9 of these at the show, cause I had to give the rest to the bands playing, and two to the lovely and talented Cari Hendren, who does the seripop.com site. I only brought 20 though, I should have taken more, cause they would have sold for sure. People were drooling over them, and asking me which number was which and what not. John Reis of RFTC/Jehu, and now Hot Snakes fame, had this to say; "Sometimes people do posters for us, but they always suck -- This one is fucking amazing!"
It was like pulling teeth trying to be able to sell them, cause I was really getting a hard time from the promoter, who wanted to give me a guest list spot, plus two, which would be adequate if the posters were in fact paid for. Hey, I'm just the dude selling them, I didn't do them, but Chloe and Yannick were not in Toronto, and I was, and am at this second as well. Anyway, I just asked the band if I could sell them, and it worked out, and everyone loves them.
Hot Snakes might want some more work done, and they kicked a lot of ass last night, and even played a Drive Like Jehu song (Bullet Train To Vegas, motherFUCKERS!).
Awesome fucking night...peace out cats.
chloe...this poster made me pee in my mouth. then it destroyed my o-ring and made me poop my drawers. i really have to say that this is an incredible poster. really, really great work. i'm incredibly jealous! please, please, please save me one for your vernissage, cuz i NEED this one!! great, great stuff!!
hey chloe when you told me about this concept, I had no idea it would turn out this cool...the type is great, the colors are awesome... wanna trade one for my own snakes poster? (i'll post teh jpeg soon)
