10/27/06: Mail Orders Aging like Fine Wine!
As many of you know from your own orders, a lot of fab folks are ordering the awesome new Jello Biafra spoken word cd. Thanks a ton, this is great!

However, the huge influx of orders has slowed our shipping time from 2 days turnaround to as long as 2 weeks turnaround. Please be patient!

We're really happy for your orders, but there's only one of us who's able to pack orders (us being a tiny record company). Thanks and please give us a few extra days to pack and ship your order right now. Rock on!

09/14/06: BloodHag art charity auction!
That's right, you can act now and win the awesome cover art of BloodHag's new AT record "Hell Bent for Letters"! The Professor writes:

"The artist, Gene Ha and I grew up in South Bend, Indiana and spent our high school years in a basement, dilligently playing D&D and honing our art drawing everybody's characters. These were good times, I was surrounded by smart, funny, creative people. Sadly, one of these basement denizens, our good friend and talented artist Barry Winston passed away suddenly this last year. Beyond losing a great talent at such a young age, Barry left behind a beautiful daughter, Brianna. Barry's friends have set up a college fund for Brianna, and to do our part to honor Barry's memory, we are auctioning off Gene's original album cover artwork. Gene has set up an eBay auction!

Not only do you get the original art pieces, you'll get the CD and LP versions of the album (autographed), and if you want, we'll even throw in an autographed tie! Please write us at our My Space page with any questions.

Don't be stingy with the bids, let's give Brianna a good nest egg for her future. I think i'm gonna bid on this myself!
Prof. Jake Stratton, BloodHag"

07/31/06: BloodHag contest on MySpace!

Hey, kids! BloodHag is having a little contest and literacy test on their MySpace page here. For those who do not want to click on the link to enter MySpace, a.k.a. Rupert Murdochsphere, then read the rules below. In the mean time, check out their new album Hell Bent for Letters (Virus 357) on CD or LP!!

BloodHag contest! Find the missing lyric and win!

FIRST EVER BLOODHAG CONTEST!

BloodHag is well known for being well-read, unfortunately, our laser-like focus on reading sometimes backfires on us, and we neglect the other areas of our life. This neglect has surfaced in the worst place...our new album!

Yes, folks, due to inattention on the part of Dr. J.M. McNulty and myself a lyric has been left out of one of our songs! I don't mean we forgot to print it in the liner notes, I mean we recorded the lyric, but due to some screw-up during the mixdown on Protools, a whole line was left out of one of our songs! As the singer and lyric-writer it really kind of pisses me off, but it's all my fault, since I was there during mixdown and didn't notice anything at the time.

So, most of you who haven't seen us perform this particular song live probably would not have noticed this missing line, but if you studiously read the lyrics and compare them with the songs (since of course all you fans have no problem understanding my vocals), you'll find the missing super-brilliant lyric.

Which brings us to the contest! Find the missing lyric and win a BloodHag t-shirt and an autographed Sci-Fi paperback!

How to play: Find the missing lyric and send it to bloodhag@yahoo.com, include your email, t-shirt size and mailing address. I will collect the correct answers until the deadline on 11:59pm, August 31st, 2006. I will write all the names on little pieces of paper, put them all in Zach's Highlander baseball cap and draw out the winner's name. I will contact you, and you will freak out with joy and wait by the mailbox every day until your prize arrives (allow 6-8 weeks for delivery).

DO NOT send your answer to the myspace email.
DO NOT post the answer in the blog, in our comments, in a bulletin, our website, or anywhere on myspace or the internet.

So take advantage of our inattentiveness and win big! If you haven't bought the CD yet, go to alternativetentacles.com and buy it now!

Thanks everybody, look for us back on the road in October!

Yours,
Prof. J.B. Stratton
