ADVENTURES IN HOME TAPING (FORMERLY CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE) RELEASED MARCH 26TH

SO, I came back from the Weezer Cruise (it was incred btw) and found an email in my inbox instructing me to kindly stop using the name and likeness of the CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURES books. I can understand why they would threaten legal action against a little tape label. I would be scared too. I still love them though. ALOT. Those books kept my imagination fertile and has much to do with the person I am today. It introduced me to all manner of magical things and taught me that uncertainty is the key to making a story interesting.

So let’s make the story interesting.

I put it to the bands involved in this album what we should rename it and there were many great suggestions but the most popular was actually the first one I gave as an alternative…

ADVENTURES IN HOME TAPING.

SO we had a name but the artwork was unusable now. What to do? MAKE IT BETTER. So I spoke to one of my favourite illustrators. The guy I wrote a children’s book with. A guy who is into all the same stuff I am, but has the major difference of being American! I said “Keith, I’m being threatened with legal action by one of my childhood staples. Can you help?” Keith replied “Fuck Punky Brewster Jed, Fuck her. I mean, that one 3-part episode where she met all those monsters in that cave was pretty cool, but don’t let her mess with you. Fuck Punky Brewster“. When I explained to him that it wasn’t Punky Brewster and let him calm down for an hour, I explained the situation. Through red eyes and tear-stained cheeks, he said “I think I can help you out on your quest” and sent me this…

It was Norm from our kid’s book! Our ultimate embodiment of adventure. I added all the tape stuff like credits and titles and my howling wolf logo and a few little flourishes and now we have a tape cover again!

ALL THE SAME BANDS. ALL OF THE SAME SONGS. SAME RELEASE DATE OF MARCH 26TH.

It’s time we blazed our own trail, r/cassetteculture. The adventure begins now!

POST/POP – The First Record Label to Accept Dogecoin as Standard.

POST/POP’s DOGECOIN:

My aim with Post/Pop is to continue to release the best music possible while having as much fun as possible. I like adventure and if you are reading this. I guess you do too. As I have been working closely with Reddit’s r/cassetteculture, it was brought to my attention that someone traded one of my tapes for DOGECOIN in r/dogemarket! I’ve read about the amazing work dogecoin did in sending the Jamaicans to the Olympics, and selling TAPES is my Olympic Games!

this is basically how dogecoin works.

SO, as well as taking normal payments, Post/Pop is also offering an alternative payment method.. DOGECOIN! Read all about what this cryptocurrency is and how it works HERE

Also read what MASHABLE has to say about the incredibly fast trajectory of this virtual currency HERE

Currently 1 doge =US$0.0012 so essentially how this will work is if you have signed up to DOGECOIN, send whatever payment you like, as long as its over £5 (a tape + postage and packaging. If you are not in the UK, maybe add a little more!) to:

DCf1AAAjwG6Mn8Hats6DHdThpnggMciTiM

and shoot me an email to jedshepherd@gmail.com with the tape you want and your name and address and its done! (if there is ann easier way, please let me know!)

If accepting DOGECOIN payments work out, in the next couple of months I will do a DOGECOIN ONLY release where I will put out tapes for a band where I will not accept anything but DOGECOIN.

You are also welcome to donate and help raise DOGECOIN’s profile within independent record labels. Or at least help this little label!

Thanks for reading and please get this message out there by reblogging, tweeting, posting to Facebook, google+ and anywhere else you can think of!

hit me up on twitter @jedshepherd if you have any questions!

thanks,

Jed

Update: POST/POP is officially the first label to sell a tape using DOGECOIN in history! It’s this one!
