TRADES: Anybody live in the bay area?? Near San Francisco?? Want to trade stuff for Asian Man Records CDs, shirts, etc.. What free stuff you ask?? Basically anything... if you work in a restaurant, theater, any type of entertainment like arcades, batting cages, amusement parks, blah blah.... anything. Lets trade!!
Anything we have at Asian Man is up for trade.
Hope you had a great weekend. I bet youre excited for Monday. Its my favorite day of the week. Seriously…it is. Why you ask? I dont know, I just like it. Maybe because theres $1 fish tacos at DEL TACO. I dont have a good answer besides the fish tacos.
Ok, lets go…..
95% of all the SKIBA and SUNDOWNER pre-orders have been shipped out. If your order hasnt been shipped out, then you got an email from me telling you that we ran out of boxes. If you didnt hear from me, then your order is almost home(your home). Isnt that great?
Hey, were now on TUMBLR.
Join us at http://asianmanrecords.tumblr.com/
A couple interns are actually in charge of this. Leyla and Gabriel to be exact. I had never even heard of Tumblr before, but thats not saying much. I still use AOL for goodness sake.
Theres a documentary being made about the great BOMB THE MUSIC INDUSTRY!. Heres the info:
No Future Films is looking to get the word out about their new film, Bomb the Music Industry!, both to encourage interest in the project as well as to raise money in order to expand the already existing short into a feature length documentary. The documentary follows the music collective, BTMI!, and their label Quote Unquote Records. The band has been nice enough to invite them into their lives and onto their van. Its their hope to raise enough money for airfare and equipment rental so they can film the bands upcoming west coast tour.
Please check out the trailer for the film and, if possible, donate to the project at: http://kickstarter.com/projects/703447049/bomb-the-music-industry-a-documentary
Their only support for the documentary is through your donations and any help is appreciated.
Ok, thats it for now. Very short and sweet. I am going to be in Portland, Maine starting Saturday July 31st through August 10th. I will be visiting my in-laws and enjoying the east coast. . During this time Asian Man will be closed. We will ship out all mailorder up to the 31st and then all other orders will be filled starting on the 10th of August. And if you happen to live in Portland, tell me some good places to eat or have fun or something random.
And remember all these good releases that are just out or are coming out.
