IT'S NOT OVER TIL THE FAT MAN SLIDES, MY FRIENDS
first of all – thank you SO SO SO fucking much for all the crazy love on my very fucking silly #MapOfTasmania song.
i love you guys.
my twitter feed has exploded with people immediately addicting to it’s PHAT BEATZ and jungle stylings.
i’m working on a blog still with photos and stuff from the video shoot, but if this is the response to the song, i think the video is going to DESTROY YOU.
also: this is the first time i’ve ever released a song like this and i ONLY released it to the twitter feed, mailed some folks down under, and blogged it.
i did not send it to the radio.
they don’t PLAY the song on the radio.
just like they don’t show the tits on the video.
but a few hundred/maybe thousand people tweeting about it and talking about it got the attention of the media, and they started writing about it (popjustice.com made it song of the day).
WE ARE THE MEDIA.
the media (that’s me) is now going to tell you about what to buy.
YOU STILL HAVE TIME TO GET SHIT IN TIME FOR XMAS!!!!
if you live in the US, there’s still time to order presents from postwartrade.com (all my merch, dolls merch, evelyn evelyn, etc) for arrival by 12/25… but you have to hit the button before 6:59EST on 12/20 (that’s THIS MONDAY a HAIR BEFORE 7 PM new york/brooklyn time!) to make sure the postman brings it to you before the fat man slides down the chimneys. ( -> insert your mom joke)
it’s crunch time for holiday present-shopping, oui, and you KNOW there’s some lonely teenager or great-aunt you forgot about who must have an AFP hoodie in order not to freeze and die:
also, you see children on the holidays. children need to be exposed to the sick stylings of the twin sisters, evelyn evelyn, in order to make a brighter tomorrow for the whole world:
and if you want to make everybody wistful, dreamy and loving as they cry into their egg nog, present them with a beautiful new tristan allen CD. you can tell them how you found it, and that you are directly supporting the art of a fucking amazing 17-yr-old pianist, and you will feel awesome:
there’s a SALE on a lot of the stuff, including some new tee designs, like this one:
there’s also now, due to popular demand, a bunch of items à la carte (sans bundle). you asked, we did. hoorah!
and now, a word from beth (@bethofalltrades), post-war trade mistress extraordinaire….
post-war trade is humming along thanks to the help of many; like most of our projects, we’ve hit a few snags (broken freight elevator with 3000 pounds of merch that needs to get to the 3rd floor! renegade UPS shipments ending up in new orleans instead of brooklyn!) but with the help of some very wonderful people, we are powering through. the PWT elves are hard at work this weekend, packaging and shipping your orders, with PUNK ROCK LOVE.
and when they leave in the wee hours of the morning, i’ve always got some help from the cats…
er…well, i thought i could get some help from the cats…
oh, and on the exciting-and-fucking-finally front: for those of you waiting on the orange #Ukulelehead vinyl—- it is FINALLY in brooklyn and we’re chaining the elves to the tables so those get sent out ASAFP too:
thank you to all of you who have been waiting, it’s coming!
back to work i go. see y’all on twitter.
exactly. what she said.
and to all of you who’ve ordered this year – be it Evelyn Evelyn or UkuleleHead or holiday bundles – and to all of you who’ve donated through bandcamp for music, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. and for those of you who will never buy a thing and or donate on bandcamp or come to a show, but who really love the music that you’ve downloaded on some torrent site or something, FUCKING…burn a copy for a friend. actually, all of you should do that. share the art, because all of YOU are what makes what we do possible.
p.s. we start the mania
