|So much is going on....

Big news A) of course is that my book, War Paint: Tattoo Culture & the Armed Forces is out and you should buy a copy -- you can order it at your local brick and mortar store or get it from Amazon.
Big news B) is that the Amanda Palmer Kickstarter will likely hit $1,000,000 sometime today. So far 61 people have chosen the Bed Song Book which Neil & I are doing together. This is significant in that the books are $1,000 a pop. I'm kind of thunderstruck by this and, of course, there's significant pressure to make it the bast looking art book on the planet.
I'm still finishing up a few more photos for the Bed Song book, so if you're in Philly, especially West Philly and still want to be in on it, drop me a line.
Big news C) is that I shot a video for Ego Likeness last week and saw a rough cut of it last night and it looks very, very nice.
Big news D) is Roller Derby related. If you haven't already, please "like" the Facebook page. It's the best way to keep up with what's happening with the Roller Derby Portraits project and also, it'll be a lot easier to convince a publisher to take on the book if it's got 5,000 facebook fans already.
Big news E) is a top sekret projekt with S.J. Tucker which some of you might know about -- Shadowcaptain is in charge of leaking rumors about that -- you'll have to track him down on the Interwebs and stalk his feeds, but if you're interested in what SJ and I might be doing, you should enjoy the treasure hunt.
Big news F) is that I'll be at the Amanda Palmer Kickstarter Party in NYC this Thursday. Say "hi" if you see me.
I think that's it. Be well everybody. Do something special today.

"make it the bast looking art book on the planet"
will it include a picture of a cat??? cats love beds .. they make beds out of everything.... and now you've Invoked Our Lady Bast!
Amanda's art for "The Bed Song" that she drew on a sheet, does indeed feature a cat ;)
i can tell you right now, if you look carefully in the Bed Song Book, Roswell is in it.
the local brick book store was being a total pain about War Paint. So I got it from Amazon. We only have a tiny BaM here and a trip to the city is not planned for a bit. I did not want to wait that long to get to B&N so we ordered =p.
Yaaaaay! Can't wait to discover what that is! :)
Same here. I made a slightly high-pitched joy noise at hearing that. Whoa, Sooj is good people...
Hi Kyle. I'm around all this week if you still need models for photos.
I can't wait to see (well, at least some of) it all--but you and Ego Likeness together (again) just strikes me as sublime...
I'm a 10-15 minute drive to philly
dammit, I really wish I still lived in west philly...
Look at you with all your Big News!
I shall just bask in your awesome.
Ooh, hey. FYI:
We're writing about the order you placed on March 22, 2012 (Order# blahblah). Unfortunately, we are unable to ship the item(s) as soon as we expected and need to provide you with a new estimate of when the item(s) may be delivered:
Kyle Cassidy "War Paint: Tattoo Culture & the Armed Forces"
New Delivery Estimate: July 05, 2012 - July 10, 2012
that sounds like a "First printing has already sold out" kinda email :) (or the less awesome "publisher is completely incompetent" email, but I'd place my bets on the first)
