Pay What You Want at My Bandcamp Page till 3/17/2014

Okay, money just got a little tighter than I like. (Current flavor of Straw That Broke The Camel's Back: glasses frames snapped.) And I'm not ready for any kind of Kickstarter yet. So: I have lowered the price of EVERY ALBUM AND LIVE SHOW at my Bandcamp site to "Pay What You Want".

This will be at least until St. Patrick's Day, and I will have a couple of new live shows and possibly something else released before then.

If you can help out, many thanks, and I hope you enjoy the music! If you just want to get some music free, now's the time.

Any discounts on creating a song?

filkertom: Maybe, but not right this minute

I'm not going to be accepting commissions again until about May 1. I have a couple of projects which I must finish. After that, we can certainly talk about it!

Any new recordings on the bandcamp page, too?

Workin' on it, workin' on it. (Of course, you're a Subscriber, so YOU DON'T NEED TO PAY ME AGAIN. :) )

I'll check to see which albums I still need soon.

Found "Release the Unreleased!" thanks!

Tom, I'm not sure what type of glasses you have (single-vision, bifocals, etc), but for single-vision glasses, I've been very happy with Zenni Optical ($7-$8 for frames + lenses, + $5 for anti-glare, + $5 for shipping for the entire order. Want them to be prescription sunglasses? Add $5.) You have to get you pupillary distance measurement from your eye doc (sometimes you have to insist on it). Bifocals or those transition bi- and tri-focals might be more difficult to get absolutely correct in terms of measurements, but frankly I've had brick-and-mortar places screw that up.

I don't recommend their light-to-dark transition lenses--for me, theirs don't go nearly dark enough. But their lenses & frames have otherwise worked beautifully for me and they are cheap enough to allow me to buy a spare pair of eyeglasses.

(Just FYI. I promise, I don't get any kickbacks from them. ;-))

A bunch of people have recommended Zenni, and I'm gonna order from them after MillenniCon. Thanks for the extra info!
