12:28 pm - wholesale orders make me happy.
Here's Little Name's CD on the shelves at Apple Crumble Records in Tokyo. It looks like Toshiko packaged them with the little Sleepy Records stickers I sent her:

And just because Toshiko's shop is so adorable:

It makes me want to open my own sleepy little mouse shop (warning: another plot forming)...

Dear Miss Acacia Sears,

I would like to report that you are listed as one of Curve Magazine's "100 Sexiest Artists" with the following blurb:

"you've got to love a girl named for a tree, but there's a lot more to adore about this melodic, hypnotic, self-taught Baltimore musician. Her debut album, Dialtones, offers hints of ani difranco and lisa loeb, only better. (sleepyrecords.com)"

We have a copy of it, I guess Dave will bring it to you on Tuesday.

(who is patting herself on the back for thinking of sending a cd to them)

I am in this video for about two seconds playing Blondie, but it's a really good interview. :)

Pile of Craft went overwhelmingly well, with a huge huge turnout! We were all over the moon about what an amazing success it was. Even though we had really good press coverage (a segment on fox 45 news, articles in the City Paper and Baltimore Sun, mentions on WYPR, etc.), we still had no idea it would be as big as it was.

Things I Must Do Before Pile of Craft:

- stuff programs with Ottobar flyers
- stop listening to The Humpty Dance
- stop subjecting tomorrow's shoppers to this week's Kathleen Hanna obsession by using a whole le tigre album in playlists
- inflate monkeys
- charge camera battery
- discover miracle facial treatment to get rid of crazy nervous breakout
- get my damn picture taken, ugh.
- set up at 2460 space

06:09 pm - Sponsors!
The Charm City Craft Mafia is looking for last minute sponsors who can contribute as little as $25 in exchange for advertising in the Pile of Craft event program. The event is on June 23rd. We're also open to advertising exchanges (your logo in our program and on our site in exchange for a mention in your email lists, logo in your next event's promo stuff, or something like that.) We're especially interested in local Baltimore businesses and organizations.

So far, I think we've got Bust, Etsy, and I think maybe the roller girls. Oh, and Red Emma's, obviously.

If anyone knows a business that might be interested, please let me know and I'll email you a sponsorship package.
