  1. A friend of mine just put out a boot reissue of the McGruff's Smart Kids album from 1986. It's a lot of ridiculous '80s synth and piano pop with McGruff singing lead and warning you of the dangers of cocaine, marijuana, and alcohol. Some of it as actually pretty damn catchy and better than you'd expect an 'educational' propaganda album to be. If you're into that kind of stuff, his group CHUD Buddies is selling them on their Etsy here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/702934592/mcgruffs-smart-kids-album-reproduction?ref=shop_home_active_1&frs=1 Speaking of, if you're into group movie watches online and chatting on Discord with other movie people all over the world, check out their main page and Discord where they do that kind of group fun stuff: http://chudbuddies.club
  2. I imagine each new round of the process (writing, recording, touring) introduces an opportunity to eject one's self as neatly as possible given the situation. I'd take her word that it's a creative difference and not something scandalous. The new re-brand is pretty bold and extends beyond the music into the visual elements of the band members themselves (or so it seems from some live videos I watched) and I can see how not everyone might have the energy and desire to take on that kind of theatrical/visual duty.
  3. It should be noted that, even if the posted policies have got you covered, individual post offices will sometimes try and pull some wild stuff in person. I had a branch that refused to scan my pre-paid labels at their desk and said it was USPS policy to only accept packages in the drop off bin, with no scan, which my other local office confirmed as false. I've also read about locations that will try to charge you for their extra care service if you write 'fragile' on the package and who have claimed music doesn't qualify for media mail. The OP's branch telling people that ALL International First Class services are capped at 16oz and Priority is necessary, knowingly or by accident, is pretty par for the course.
  4. I think the individual listing page is incorrectly priced. The tape is $13.99 (still very expensive) if you use the dropdown selector in the main listing at the top of the page.
  5. Everything after Eskimo Snow has been a gut punch in terms of how disappointing I've found them. What's been strange is how fun and good the Divorcee and Yoni & Geti albums were. He's able to find that right balance still but, for some reason, the last few Why? albums have leaned into his worst instincts as a songwriter, IMO. Very curious to see how this one ends up sounding.
  6. This feels like it was custom made for a Popmarket/Insound/MusicVaultz 70% off sale in a year.
  7. Dang. I said this would happen sometime in June and it has! Rad music pins are here and in our shop. Available in our Etsy shop and via direct mail-order (for a few bucks cheaper). Links to both on our site at https://mintplusplus.com/pages/pop-culture-pins
  8. Wowee. I changed web hosts and shopping platforms last month and now all my images/posts/discount codes above are wonky. All broken links/images/codes above edited for accuracy/aesthetics. 😬 Right now, I'm serving up our two new Captain Marvel/Simpsons mashups, Captain Lisa and Snowball Goose. Both are available individually or in the 2 pack (with free holographic stickers) pictured below. On deck, I'm adding some cool abstracted '90s themed vinyl, tape and CD pins. Those should be in our Etsy shop sometime in June. You can follow me on Instagram at @mintplusplus if that sounds like something you'd dig and would want to know when they're up for sale. Other updates: We still have a few copies of our previous Bart Simpsons/Beavis nightmare mashup pins, which are fun and gross. I made 50-75 of each variant at the end of 2018 and I'm not remaking them. I got rid of discount codes and just lowered everything by 10-20%. No code needed. If you're still addicted to the concept of a 'deal', you can buy 2 or more pins and I'll throw in a free copy of our cassette tape tote bag. No code needed. You can order traditionally via our Etsy shop or save a few bucks and order direct. Links/instructions for both are on our website. Stop reading this long post and get your shop on at our pins page @ https://mintplusplus.com/pages/pop-culture-pins
  9. Hey! I'm back. One week left on my Kickstarter, so, I wanted to quickly highlight a reward that I think might appeal to 1 or 2 people who collect pins and dig what we've been releasing so far. The subscription has been capped at 4 people and I'm opening up 4 more spots as part of this Kickstarter (1 has already been claimed). I'm most likely going to keep it permanently capped at 8-10 people since it's kind of an insane thing (every pin for life?!) that only works for me if it's a small group who digs what we're doing and wants to be our test group for new pins and accessories. You can sign up for one of the 3 remaining spots by choosing the Lifetime Pin Subscription reward on our current Kickstarter here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mintplusplus/90s-music-collector-enamel-pins?ref=9hdcuc
  10. The original pressing is SO expensive. Gonna grab a regular edition once it floats by my phone screen.
  11. Random code INDIEFOXX gets you $5 off a 1 month sub, $15 off a 3 month sub, and $60 off a 12 month.
  12. FYI I am auctioning off my copy of In Your Dreams to raise money for Southern Poverty Law Center. https://mintplusplus.com/blog/doing-good/rare-vinyl-record-auction-for-charity/ It is the /35 brown splatter edition. Graded VG due to a light warp and some surface noise. Bidding starts at 99 cents. No reserve. Feel free to share with other Dr. Dog and McMicken fans! Thanks!
