im getting ready to drop this new album. about to launch a kickstarter campaign. what i want to do is release a DIY album, get a top notch mixing job, have a very interesting and unique final product and hire a very dope marketing firm/publicist to work other non hipstser music blog angles. to almost work the album like its a book. but thats whatever.
the album is called "a ruthless criticism of everything existing" and im looking for ideas on what kinda shit people would want from me. here are items i have been brainstorming to throw in with various kickstarter things. do you guys have any suggestions or ideas of things that might be cool to include?
-pre released copy of the album when it is released to press, maybe before -a reader... kind of like laphams quarterly but a collection of writings that inspire me -bath salts -cajun dry rub -tibetan style prayer flags with lyrics from the album on them... (stole this idea from ravi zupa)
-rare live poets vinyl -original old school photos from 98-2001 -bowls, plantpots, and or ashtrays made from vinyl from anticon era sole singles which are never going to sell -zip up hooded sweatshirts -t shirt -tapestries -custom voicemail message -i cook a vegan meal for you and your friends(probably will only be good for colorado)
i want to be careful and stay away from dumb shit like coffee mugs or keychain razors... i dunno... i know that kickstarter is a tricky road to take, but im hoping i can strike a dope balance with this....

Original finger paintings on like small 3x3 canvas or something. The content of the paintings could be based on subjects or figures from your songs on the new album. Maybe on inserts in the cd packaging itself.
