Norm's New CD ~ The Esoteric Order of Sherman!

Postby normsherman » Tue Nov 08, 2011 7:36 pm

More specifically, the kickstarter project for my new CD!

Image

Because I record most of these songs myself, it's not too expensive to finish up the final stages of this project. Hoping to get this thing wrapped up in time for Xmas stocking stuffers and a Kwanzaa release party.

Consider making a pledge, I think you'll really enjoy this CD!

The track listing is on the Kickstarter page. High quality re-recordings of Bbardles is the general gist.

Norm, it says on that website that you perform in Baltimore as part of the Skidmarx. Where and how often do you perform?

Done my part. Lets make this happen, folks. We're about halfway there. This CD is long in the making, let's help bring it to fruition!

Pledged, but I'm not happy that I had to create yet ANOTHER dummy account on Amazon. :x
I don't hardly know who I am anymore when I buy stuff. :|

What's the tally at? I dropped some change in the wrong hat, so I asked to have it shuffled around in back. Are we close?

Also, do you think you can toss in your 'Twas the Night' as a bonus track? It's not really music, but it's certainly fun (and it's set to music...).

8 days left, peeps.

Question about the options "Blown up 8X10 original cover art signed by Norm and artist Bo Kaier." What if we want an non-exploded cover art? Or are you going to Mythbuster's route, of 10 pounds of C-4?

We're pretty close! Bout 250.00 to go with 5 days left (and can always go over goal amount). No way to get money donated round back reflected toward the kickstarter goal (which has to be met by date or all bets are off) but it does help with things that I didn't account for when setting things up-- such as the percentage skimmed from kickstarter (5%) and amazon (5%) in the end, and pledges that don't follow through/bounce credit cards etc. Feel dumb for not factoring those in!
So anyone who wants to avoid Amazon or kickstarter hassle can make donations through Drabblecast paypal and just be sure to note it as support for the new CD. The pledge incentives will apply to them also up through Dec. 12!

I've actually gotten asked that a lot! I'm glad because that was always one of my fav's but for whatever reason I didn't get the impression people were too into it when it came out.
Planning on putting together a "Best of" compilation of Intro/Outro material at some point with various Drabblenews, Utah Rap, Little Shop of Stem Cells etc. It'll def be on there!

Damn, 10 percent!?! In the good old days you could get stoned to death for that.

I'd start a competitor, but I don't really like such lawyer-prone business models.

Next time, apply for a Prosper loan, Norm.

You can completely skip the paying back part with no repercussions (as a good chunk of my portfolio instinctively knew).

Geez, and I thought the left hand knew what the right hand was doing. Silly me. You need to submit that puppy to Spec the Halls, don't you?

5% each is not sup rising to me. Credit card companies take about 3% of my bottom line. Bank transfers take $15-$50. I'll go get some stones to throw.

Christmas songs- The 3 you've done are AWESOME. 'Twas The Night is one of my all-time favorites. I love the section about the dradle. "With symbols carved into each of it's sides, which surely must tell of coming end times."
