Well, unless you are the kinda “reader” who doesn’t read the site, who just comes to get the songs and leave then you may not have notice the banner under our title banner for Craftin’ Outlaws for the past month or so — but then again, you aren’t reading this part here either, so I could literally say anything right now and you wouldn’t even know it, would you! *snicker* Poopyhead! *snicker* Stinkypants! *snicker* ha! — Well, we here at the TSURURADIOs are one of the sponsors of the event, as well as a vendor, as well as the “DJ”, or more appropo-ly, “music provider” — I’m no wiki-wiki-MC Scratchy — for and at and for the show. So, so, so excited — and nervous, I mean, adorable leather clutches and less than safe for work photography in one booth? Oy.
We got our wall built, I twitpic’d it last weekend, want to see it? check it…
A little ghetto? Sure, but so are we. Though, we did clean up the dripping paint so it looks less like blood.
We got our product ready, time to start putting it all together into one mind-boggling adorable & sexy presence to make lots of the moneys! To do so, I recruited my sister, Marianne, seen here looking very “LA”..
Actually, she just came up for a little vaca/visit, but I’m toooootally going to put her to work on our display (shhh… don’t tell her).
Now… it’s not just a Tsuru & The Bride show, by any means, we are just one of many extraordinarily talented folks who will be selling their wares! Want a little sampling? Sure you do you sick bastards..
Long Mountain Designs!
Pieces Of 8!
And did I mention Tsuru & The Bride yet??? haha! Check out the rest of the list of vendors and their links here.
So yeah, today will be final preppage, maybe a little bike riding with the sis & my baby — three bikes, six legs, should be good to go! She’s tall (5’10”) so she should fit on Kapu just fine — and a little test run of the 139 song playlist I’ve created for tomorrow’s big event!
Yep! As of now, I’ve got 9 hours built for the 7 hour show (a little buffer’s always good, eh?), a lot of which has been pulled from our own tsuruloosies and mixtapes, and it just needs some final good sound system listening to make sure nothing’s “too much” of anything and that it’s all “spend your money inducing” so everyone there makes lots of da moneys!!! We gots mouths to feed, bills to pay!
So, that’s where you come in! Today I’m picked a random smattering of the songs, I think about 37 of them, and put them here for your enjoyment. YOUR job — yeah, you, the one who’s STILL reading — is to listen, love, and let me know whether or not you suddenly have a craving for alternative arts & crafts or instead, feel the urge to go shopping at the mall or Wal-mart or something.
Seriously, if you listen to these songs and find yourself on People Of Walmart and not at Craftin’ Outlaws, you HAVE to let me know!
Details here, a TsuruBride original creation and a print are up for grabs!!!
Okay, that’s it, time for you to get to work. Remember, this is just a random & blind selection from a total 139 songs. So, start listening keeping very careful notes and maybe even a dream journal of what becomes of the relationship between you and your moneys while the good times are a-playin’ as…
