New prices / shipping rates. - Tuesday, January 13, 2009 - 0 comments
Just recently TOR has started receiving a good bit of press for its new recordings, and with that there has been an influx of orders for the 45. After a particularly harrowing post office experience, I've realized that it's time to accept that inflation, like evolution, may be more than just a theory.
Our prices are going up.
This means that the glory years of the $3-seven-inch-by-mail must be committed to memory, as against my religion as this seems. All Recursive Delete items are now $1 more, and shipping to international addresses has been upgraded to reflect recent price increases. (I had no idea there was no longer surface mail to Europe!)
I hated to do it, but it's a reality. Luckily it's still feasible for me to sell a 7" for $3 or a book for $8 if it's purchased from me in person. So if you want me to hop on my bike and pedal over with a discounted basket of goodies, just say the word.
Embracing the internet? - Thursday, May 08, 2008 - 0 comments
I was surprised to see my name and this website's URL mentioned in a Portland Mercury article about the 10th anniversary of the IPRC. "Zinesters like Jack Saturn have embraced the internet as a way of distributing their work more widely." So much so that I haven't updated this site in two years! Not that I'm going to shun press, but I'm certainly undeserving at the moment. It's like you came over to my house and I didn't even know to clean my room ahead of time!
Seriously, though, I am so proud of the IPRC, where I volunteered for half of its lifespan. Most of the media that has emerged from this imprint was designed there. I have some graphic design work in mind for a couple of current projects and have been mulling over the possibility of renewing my IPRC membership and getting back over to the space more often.
As for this website, the only recent news is that I enabled Google Checkout links on the product pages, so now you can order records and books more easily with a credit card. Next item on the agenda is to figure out how to automate sales of digital downloadsthose "MP3" things you kids like.
Other than that, not a lot has been going on over here, what with my focus on The Online Romance, which has evolved from a solo project into a six-piece band over the past two years. We're currently in the process of recording a 12-song LP, to be released on vinyl by Recursive Delete and subsequently, we hope, on CD by a reputable larger indie label. Expect more news on this as the summer progresses.
With my recent sale of the saturn.org domain to a German non-profitthus your being redirected here if you tried to go thereI no longer have a "personal" web presence, though honestly I wasn't using saturn.org for much of anything in recent times anyway. Though I was an early adopter of weblogs (1999!), I lost interest shortly after the turn of the century. Lately, though, I've been mulling over starting a music blog or a podcast, and if my interest ever reaches a boiling point and I actually get it done, it'll be attached to this here site.
Again, no promises, but maybe it won't be a two-year lapse before this page changes again!
Website updates. - Sunday, June 11, 2006 - 0 comments
I've been updating the website for the first time in ages probably a year at least after being inspired to do so by a new release we'll be putting out in a few days. The "artists & staff" pages in particular have gotten a major overhaul. I'm not going to say "expect more frequent updates" because then I'd just jinx myself like I always do, but do stay tuned, as I'm hoping there will be more to come.
This page of the website wouldn't function without Movable Type 3.14
All the junk on this site (graphics, audio, text) is (cc)1999-2013 Recursive Delete. Not because we believe that we invented the wheel and want credit for it, but just because it's not cool to take other people's art and use it for your own without at least asking first.
