Clothe yourself

Happy New Year everyone. Sorry I've been away from the blog for a bit. After the craziness of gettting the CD released, and then the holidays, I was a little worn out.

Updates:
Well, the CD is selling great. I've sold around 200 actual hard copies, which I know doesn't sound like much, but considering I haven't done any shows to promote, and that I'm the only "store" that's carrying it, it's not bad. And it's doing really well on iTunes and other download stores as well. So big thanks to all of you who have been buying and telling your friends and such.

I'm doing lots of writing these days. Hoping to start working on a new "grown-up" project in a few months. I miss writing and playing music that isn't about boogers or juiceboxes or monkeys.

I'm booking concert for the winter and spring, so if you'd like me to come play for you (grown-ups, kids, or both), let me know. If you don't know how it all works, send me an emai or comment on this blog and I'll fill you in. It's extremely cheap and easy. And it will change your life for ever.

And now, onto something new. Check it:


OK, I've never done anything like this before, so I have no idea how people would react. So look at the pics below and then read on.

These were designed by my pal Josh Taylor, who is not only an amazing artist/designer, but is also the lead singer and guitarist for Clairmont, a fantastic band that you need to hear and see and support.

Here's the thing. Shirts aren't cheap to order and, as I said, I have no idea if any of my "fans" would even be interested in something like this. So here's what I'm looking for. I need to know if any of yo would buy these if I offered them.

How much? Well,I need to charge $14-15 just to make any money on them. But I could give discounts for purchases of multiples, or "buy a CD and get a shirt for half-price" kinds of things.
And I ca definitely get "get lots of friends to buy my CD and get a shirt for free" deals.

Oh, and I can get kid/baby sizes as well as grown-up sizes.

Soooo, thoughts? If enough people respond postively, I'll get these going in the next month, in time for the spring weather. We all know that erbody love juicebox, but I'm trying to find out if erbody love juicebox t-shirts.

Yes, the Creamer family would definitely buy them.

Couldn't you be more shameless? I don't see anything on the shirts that says, "To really appreciate this shirt, buy the CD at http://rosskingmusic.com/home_buy.htm".
