The Aflac duck was not directed at anyone. FLAC always reminds me of him for some reason. Everyone enjoy the computer file of your choice. :)

Whenever I read conversations about FLAC files, I think of the damn AFLAC duck.

Thanks. Really enjoying listening to your latest offering. I wonder if it would not be nicer to release your CDs without jewel case packaging. There's something horribly tacky about a brittle plastic box. Cardboard sleeves serve wonderfully well for vinyl releases. Would not a beautifully designed cardboard sleeve be sufficient to house a CD?

It would, but then we wouldn't have space for much artwork, which is always fun to design. The other alternative, which we've occasionally pursued, is a digipak...but for some reason they cost twice as much to manufacture as a jewel case, which effectively halves my income from each album. So, I only do digipaks as a special treat for certain albums.

Fair enough. I was thinking along the lines of dispensing with plastic all together by having a cardboard sleeve, gate fold or single, with maybe an auxiliary paper insert for more artwork, lyrics, or generally musically inclined information. I guess plastic is simply to drastic for my tastes. However, I certainly wouldn't like to see you lose out considering how often you've been cheated by the recording industry over the years. On a slightly different note, I was checking out Quiet Bells on your website. I clicked the link to buy the CD from the Dreamsville Store but it was not listed even as a sold out item. It was also not listed on the SOS website or, as far as I can tell, available as a digital download. Any ideas on how I could purchase a copy?

Unfortunately, 'Quiet Bells' sold out rather quickly so there are no more copies available. I will be issuing it as a digital download at some point in the future but not for a while yet.

OK, thanks for letting me know. I'll keep an ear open for the digital download.

Howdy! Welcome to Dreamsville Mr. Woo![/quote]

Whoopi! Woo welcomed to Dreamsville, although somewhat confused by "Howdy" as not American. Also, Woo not fan of Ayn Rand's philosophy of Objectivism, although not being required to be, not troubled by it either.
Welcome always welcome, to and from all beings on planet Earth.
