THIS UPDATE, IT IS MASSIVE: 180G MWY LPS, FRODUS ONESIES, TEST PRESS SALE, THOU HXC SHIRTS BACK, KRALLIC SHIRTS BACK…

Gilead Media – Email Update for 9/9/2010

I finally got around to watching Yojimbo today. I bought it like, two years ago, and never actually watched it. Enjoyed it immensely. Going to try getting through Sanjuro before sleep.

Things at Gilead Media may have appeared quite slow, and this may be true to some extent. There was some stuff going on in the background, but in general the label took a back seat for a while there. I was placing a big focus on preparing for our vendor table at Wizard World/Chicago Comic Con, and preparing for the intense Annual Oshkosh Zombie Walk, which I co-founded/help coordinate.

The Comic Con vendor table consisted of Heart Felt Well catnip toys and Buttons By Bernie. If you haven’t taken a second to check out my wife’s super-cute catnip toys, then take a moment to get on that, they’re great… and 5% of sales goes to the Oshkosh Area Humane Society! For Buttons By Bernie (the new name under which I conduct all button related business) my friend John and I, through much brainstorming at work, came up with about 100 nerdy/horror/scifi/action film related buttons and designed/pressed them over the course of 3 weeks. There are some pretty great designs in there, and I’m looking forward to setting up an etsy shop for all the pre-made buttons sometime in the near future. All in all it was a very fun weekend. Plus, here’s a picture of me with a dude dressed up as Moss from The IT Crowd.

The Annual Oshkosh Zombie Walk was also quite a blast. It starts as an hour long Zombie Walk throughout downtown during the Gallery Walk, and concludes at the Time Community Theater in downtown Oshkosh. The Theater is a non-profit community run theater in need of much renovation and a whole lot of love. During the after-party we have contests, raffles, foodstuffs, drink and trivia events with prizes donated by over 40 sponsors (including Image Comics, Tony Moore, Rue Morgue Magazine and many local businesses). All of the money we raise at this event goes straight to the theater, not a dime in our pockets. We spent about 4 months preparing this year, and ended up with about 500-600 zombies and at least 500 non-zombie spectators that came down just for the event. Not to mention all of the regular art-walk traffic. Overall we were quite pleased with the turnout! If you want to check out some photos, then head over to Facebook and “like” Oshkosh Horror. There’s a ton of attendee submitted photos on our wall. So good. Quick photo of the gathering place, behind our local comic book shop, House of Heroes. Just a portion of the horde, near the tail end…

And as the shamble began…

Alright, that’s enough of that, it’s party time. This update has a lot of ground to cover, so get to it:

These babies have been a long time coming, glad I can finally get em up for sale.

Both “Catch For Us The Foxes” and “AB LIFE” come on 180 Gram colored vinyl, and this pressing includes a PRINTED INNER SLEEVE, instead of that old lyric sheet insert dealy. Shipping on or around 9/23!! $13.00 each!!

II. THOU “HARDCORE” SHIRTS BACK IN STOCK, LIMITED!
There was a fiasco the first time I printed these, shortages & delays on the initial blank garment order. I finally have all original orders filled & shipped, and had forgotten I ordered extra blanks this time around. So these are back on sale, in very limited quantities, for one final time. Less than 4-5 of each size remain, so don’t sleep. You STILL need to order the CD to get the shirt. Thems the breaks. Printed on Royal Apparel ringspun garments with water-based inks.

III. KRALLICE SHIRT OVER-RUN FOR SALE!
I received an email this week inquiring to the availability of the Krallice pre-order package shirts. Behold, I found a big ol’ batch of them in a box. Order up, these will not be reprinted. They’re available individually. Printed on Anvil organic ringspun garments.

IV. FRODUS “FROBABY” INFANT ONE PIECE ON SALE NOW – SHIP 10/1!
Yea, you read that right. Frodus onesies. Shelby mentioned this jokingly and I responded half-jokingly that it would be fairly simple to do. Thusly, here they are. Got a youngin’ in your home? Better get them on the path of awareness. Water-based metallic silver ink on black printed on Royal Apparel ringspun garments with three snap enclosure. Ship on or around 10/1, available to order now. THESE WILL ONLY BE MADE TO ORDER, NO OVER-RUNS! IF YOU WANT ONE YOU NEED TO ORDER ONE!

There’s some other goods I’m working on, but those look like they’ll be the more immediate things! Help me get these jams to you by purchasing some jams that have already been brought!

Thank you, dear friends!
