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.
