Day 21 - 365/2014

Day Twenty-One

Wow -- what a great day to get the mail!

My all-time favorite musical hero -- Arthur Brown -- had a PledgeMusic project to fund his latest album -- "Zim Zam Zim" -- and when you pledged an amount you could choose an incredible item.  A while back those five of us who pledged to have our names in a song received the MP3 of the tune...it is so wonderful.

Today the rest of my items arrived!!!  The other items I pledged for:  my name in the liner notes/thank you mentions in the album booklet, and autographed copy of the CD, a piece of original art made by Arthur Brown, handwritten lyrics to the song of my choice ("Child of My Kingdom"), and a "disposable camera/a day in the life of Arthur Brown". 

I can't even begin to describe how thrilled I am with these items.  And I can't wait to get the camera's photos developed...man!

Squeeeeeeeee!  Two packages from the UK!
The accompanying note.
The autographed CD.
The album booklet...can you see my name in the thank you's?
Here it is!
The "Day in the Life of Arthur Brown" disposable camera.
The original artwork by Arthur Brown!
Signed on the back, of course!
A shot of the handwritten lyrics for the song "Child of My Kingdom" -- it continues on the other side.

AND...a total surprise...I made it into Artists in Cellophane's "1099 Club".  If you, as an Art-o-mat artist, receive yearly payments totaling or exceeding the sum of $600 you have to file a 1099 Miscellaneous Income form with the IRS.

This is the second time I have qualified -- very cool indeed!  I was so not expecting this.

My 1099 Club letter (with "official seal") and iron-on patch.

Hi beatjunkie/Duane -- I don't really know. I'd say try contacting AB through his Facebook page or website. Maybe this was an initial early release for pledgers? Perhaps the album will become more widely available later on?
