Going to the Post Office…

Posted in News with tags , , on January 26, 2010 by telepromptedanthems

This is what the floor in my office looks like right now. Taking these bad boys to the post office in a bit…

And by the way, that piece of junk Dell isn’t mine; I have to use it for work. So don’t be getting the wrong idea, I’m still the stereotypical fanboy.

Just in case your copy of the No Name Losers DVD isn’t in one of those piles, head to our online store and you still might have time to get in on this trip to the post office.

Sellers Remix Up Now On Alliancewake.com

Posted in News with tags on January 21, 2010 by telepromptedanthems

By now, you’ve all undoubtedly heard the big news that the No Name Losers DVD is done and shipping. For those of you who are curious about what the bonus features are like, the kind folks at Alliance have agreed to put up a little sample on their website, so head over there now to get a sneak peek of Justin Sellers’ remix section. You won’t be able to find it anywhere else on the internets (not even on our own Vimeo page), so be sure to go check it out and maybe leave a comment saying how awesome we are or something. No pressure though, it’s totally up to you. Anyway, big thanks to Brooke, Rusty, and the whole Alliance crew for hooking that up.

And now comes the inevitable sales pitch: You really and truly don’t want to be the last person on your block to have a copy of this DVD, so go ahead get yours in our online store. It’s full of bonus stuff like more remixes, trailers, a brilliant commentary from Nick and myself, and more. My mom says that it’s the best wakeboard video that she’s ever seen and let me tell you, that woman knows her stuff.

OPEN FOR BUSINESS

We here at Teleprompted Anthems, being the budding titans of industry that we are, are very pleased to announce that we have officially opened our online store. It’s still pretty bare bones (my sister actually called it “pathetic”), but as of right now it’s the only place on the world wide web that you can get your hands on the brand new No Name Losers DVD.

Yes folks, that was my not-so-subtle way of letting you know that it’s done. Finally. Over a year in the making and over four months after the damn thing premiered, the No Name Losers DVD is actually ready to be unleashed on the public. I’ve seen them, I’ve held them, they’re in my possession and as of today, they’re ready to ship. Look…I have proof! Here’s what my desk looks like right now:

I’ve been in full on Do-It-Yourself mode getting the DVD ready, meaning that for the last week I’ve been compressing, burning, printing, assembling and packing every single one of these things. I kind of feel like Ian Mackaye assembling the first Minor Threat records; the only difference is that this is a wakeboard DVD, not a revolutionary hardcore record that sparked an entire movement and changed the lives of thousands of kids all over the world. Seriously though, other than that the similarities are downright spooky.

Anyhow, since we’re so punk rock and went the DIY route, we’re pretty pumped to say that the DVD can be yours for the low, low price of $15, plus $2 for shipping. $17 out the door, folks…it’s a steal! And just to add to the value, the DVD is loaded up with bonus features, including alternate edits, trailers, commentary from Nick and myself, and more.

For those of you who are scared of the internet or don’t have a computer (how the hell are you seeing this right now?), the DVD’s will also be available at Aussie Island Surf Shop in Wilmington and at Icy Waves Surf Shop at Lake Norman. If you live in one of those areas, please go get your copy from them because they’re rad people and they have always had our backs so therefore they are forever deserving of your business. Pick up some other stuff while you’re there, too…Tell them Brad sent you. There might be some more spots to pick up the DVD in the future but for right now, that’s it so if those locations aren’t convenient to you, scoop one up in our store.

It’s been a long time coming, and we’d be remiss if we didn’t say say thank you so much for all the support and the patience while we were wrapping this thing up. A lot of people have said a lot of really nice things about the movie since we premiered it in October and we definitely appreciate it. Keep your eyes open for new items making their way into the store as the year goes on; no definite plans just yet, but I’ve got a few ideas I’ve been kicking around, so stay tuned.

And oh my God, NC State just beat Duke. In basketball. That’s as good an ending as I’ve ever heard.

It’s Miller Time

Look on the computer screen.

That’s what a DVD looks like when it’s burning.

Big update coming very soon.
