oh ok, i saw your friend went to the GY!BE show at Cat's Cradle and thought you might be around there too. the CD-R is a hand drawn version of Quivering Arrows that i've been handing out since about 2007 or 2008, when i began to realize that the real release was going to take a while. lots of delays and the label guy disappeared for a while, and now i can't seem to reach him. but at this point i (and he) have put so much time into designing this thing that i hate to just up and go somewhere else. because this dude GETS it, we were perfectly in sync with the vision for this release. :\ i doubt you found it on youtube, as i've never put it up there (maybe someone else did?), but it makes me SUPER happy to think you told your friend you read HoT and they were like "oh dude, you should totally check out this album then". that's awesome.
wait holy shit, are you in the Carborro area? i go to shows down there all the time. if you'll be at Tremont for Swans on 10/20 i can just bring you a copy then. small fucking world. how'd you find ...an ellipsis? if i know you from someplace else on the internet i'm going to feel really stupid. ;)
just happened to check the ...an ellipsis page and saw you were a top listener. i check your page and you JUST listened to it an hour ago! thanks for listening, hope to, someday, offer Quivering Arrows in a beautifully handcrafted digipack. only about 6 years behind schedule on that. i can post you one of the hand decorated CD-Rs i've been handing out for the past several years if you want, if you're the collecting type.
