Here's the new MOLESHOW DVD/CD package - it's quite swell.
This is limited to 400 pieces (only 350 made available for purchase), all numbered, each set comes with 12 postcards (5.5" x8.5") with backdrop drawings from the show (6 mole and 6 chub), a miniature shovel (digging not recommended), a chipboard digipak featuring a CD with the Australian radio special (70 minutes) and a single camera DVD of the uninterrupted live MOLESHOW, filmed at the Kabuki Theater in San Francisco. All wrapped up in a printed, drawstring burlap bag.
The video quality is from a single VHS camera back in the early 80's, which is probably a notch or two (or three) under a flip video camera. Audience sound as well. So think of it as yer own lo-fi time travel accessory...peeking thru a rip in the fabric of time, thru a hole in the wall of the theater. So DO NOT expect a high production release - there's not even a menu, just push and play for the gritty Mole reality. The CD is a REAL gem, featuring music and interviews with the Cryptic Corp during the days of the 444 Grove St. warehouse just before the Moleshow tour. A lot of talk of how the 'music industry is changing' and that no one is buying music anymore...back in 1982.

oh, there's a new RalphAmerica.com site design as well.
I sit around in a cave-like office. It's a bit isolating. Just me and a stack of envelopes and a stack of Residents stuff. A phone and computer. I spend my time putting that Residents stuff into the envelopes. I'll blog a bit to get you, The Residents' BIG FAN's perspective on various sale ideas, product ideas, and yer feedback, in general.
