Anonymous asked: why cant you just release the album? why do you need a kickstarter?
i know it doesn’t seem like it, but albums cost money to make and promote if you’re even going to bother continuing your career. i spend a lot of time on my music and all the stuff that comes with it, but there’s only so much i can do for free. i don’t like to make people pay money for my music- i don’t like having to spend money to listen to music, ngl, even tho i know it took them money to make it and blah blah blah.
i am asked almost every day if there are physical releases of any of my music. nope, there’s none right now, because it costs money to distribute physicals. kickstarter money would help press vinyl/make CDs/whatever
i am asked almost every day why i don’t have more merch. i’ve done the best i can literally on my own- i’ve put a few different things out here and there, but since i do it on my own i pay for all of it and design it all myself (i don’t want anyone else messing up my merch n stuff, yknow? if it has my name on it, i want it to be mine) it gets overwhelming/expensive/confusing to make new merch. with money to pay someone trustworthy to figure out that mess for me (and print all the cool shit i wanna make, like pillowcases and underwear) there would be more stuff and it would be a lot easier to find and buy it.
i am asked when i will be playing in whatever city/country/state/etc next. i don’t know- i don’t have any shows booked right now. normally, a label or other sponsor would pay for a tour (it costs a lot! and i’m not interested in driving across the country and playing shows for free and having to beg people to buy my merch so i can have gas money! i’m not a pop punk band and i don’t want my shows to become a charity performance where people come because they feel bad for me. i want my shows to be 100% fun for everyone!) kickstarter helps fund the planning/equipment/travel stuff/publicity/hiring an opening act so that my shows can be as cool as i want them to be.
my old songs sounded like shit, not just because they weren’t great songs but because the quality of mixing/mastering was very poor. my new songs are a lot more intense vocally/lyrically/production-wise and because i want them to be the best they can be, i gotta get someone who knows what they’re doing to mix and master them. that costs money too!!!!
at this point, i’m at a weird place because i get attention for different things now. i’m a lot more grown up than i was a year or two ago, i’m not necessarily a laughing-stock spectacle anymore. i have a lot of goals/dreams and i think kickstarter is rly sick because it helps people with goals and dreams find support with the people who believe in what they’re doing! right now, i’m not planning on starting a kickstarter to fund my album. that was just a random drunk tweet because i’m getting bored and anxious in between releases (which is why i keep leaking things, lol) and it’s making me a little depressed because i’m not very busy and there isn’t much to do. most of the stuff i talked about up there is already being worked out for flowerviolence because it’s already been p much finished for a while. it’s just gonna take a sec to get it all done (it’s a big deal, i swear) depending on how some stuff goes in the near future, it could be really really good news and things will finally be busy again and i won’t have time 2 mope around and wish i was playing a show in a warm state ):

Screaming inside part 2
are there even any houses in the usa which touch each other???
like in britain some houses are terraced or semi-detached
but in america they’re like “dON’t tOUch mE!”
I HAVE ALWAYS WONDERED WHAT BRITISH NEIGHBORHOODS LOOKED LIKE. THANK YOU.
Isn’t that like a major fire code violation? Like if one house catches on fire, POOF there goes the whole fucking street up in flames.
we never learn
