Unkut/Tribute To Ignorance/Steady Bootleggin Fundraiser

Yesterday I got a message reminding me that my hosting bill was due, and while I was happy to fund it myself a year ago when I first got it hooked up, I thought “Hey, instead of cutting into my booze budget, maybe I should get a few bucks from some of the good folk and/or deadbeats that read this site and get free shit all the time.”

Now that I’m leaving songs up for months at a time, we’re chewing through a fair bit of bandwidth, and as you might have noticed the limit was exceeded last month (thanks in part to effective Day By Day promotions department that saw the MF Grimm snippets downloaded by around three thousand Percy Carey fans) which meant that the site was unavailable for about a day and half. To avoid this happening again, I’ll need to upgrade our hosting.

The first ten of you generous to donate a few bucks will get exclusive download access to an out-of-print album of 12″ of your choice (I’ll send an email with the selections once you’ve contributed), unless I think of something better over the next couple of days.

I just changed jobs and ain’t going to see any money for a minute. Take solice in knowing that if I won the Florida lottery last night, I would definitly hit you up for doing such a good job. I didn’t win the Florida lotto last night.

How much we talking? Like, literally a few bucks?

Why not just take the links down sooner? I know I get the occasionaly “can you reup” once the tracks been down, but life just sucks like that sometimes. (I use free hosting via sendspace, so I know it’s different.)

Hoy Kinzie ya flamin’ Galaa, is there a PayPal equivalent of paying you with a comically cumbersome bag of pennies rather than a note?
