Redbubble is pretty great (I use them for all of my non-book comics merch), but yeah they're kind of slow. Nature of the manufacturing-on-demand game. I get the impression that they're based in Europe and actually outsource all their printing to local-ish manufacturers (common in this industry - even Cafepress does that for most of their things), which also adds delays of course.

We just uploaded one of the "alternate takes" for the poster design to Redbubble, in case anyone is keeping score....

Update -- My friend Andy's shirt shipped the day after he placed the order, so the turnaround might actually be not-too-bad?

Maybe you or Rabs could PM me a Portland postal address? I'll order a shirt and pick it up off you when I get there.

It would likely be useful for coordinating the unofficial field trips and whathaveyou. If this sounds like a thing you'd like to use, PM me with your google email, and I'll add you to the SFLPDXOR2015 hangout!
Is this set up yet?

I don't know how the Google Facebook thingy works

Appears set up (I know less than you about the workings of MyGoogle). It says I'm "added", so I suppose once something somethings in there, my phone will start spitting blood and screaming obscenities at the contents of my pocket.

Or something. ;-)

Hey Kids!

Ok, I'm back in Portland! (I was out of town this past weekend.) I strongly advise all of you joining the Portland, OR Dog and Pony Show to send me your gmail addy (you can PM me here) so that I can add you to the Google Hangout. (A hangout is basically a big private chatroom.) It's been a valuable tool for other events, and it's an excellent way to keep in the loop/stay in touch.

You can download the mobile ap for iphone here:
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/hangout ... 96868?mt=8

And you can download the mobile ap for android here:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... talk&hl=en

You can also use the ap for video conferencing, but we will not be using it in that capacity for this hangout.

We'll be endeavoring to keep the signal-to-noise ratio good and high for this chatroom, which means less chatter, more logistics.

So sign on, Songfight peeps!

EDIT: Evidently the iPhone interface is causing consternation. Apologies, I assumed (ha!) that it would be essentially similar on both platforms.

Here is the rundown on how you can "Chat" in the iPhone ap:
Chat message
Type your message into the textbox, and touch the send icon .

To add photos, videos, your location, or a sticker, touch the icon. The message will send automatically after you add the attachment.

Photo : Send one or more photos from your device.
Camera : Take a photo or a video up to 10 seconds long.
Location : Add your current location or another location on the map.
Sticker : Send an animated sticker to show how you're feeling.
Edit 2: Doh, that, of course, did not paste the crucial iconography. Let's just point everyone here:

Further halp:

In other news, I'm debating whether to keep my slot since I've had limited time to re-learn my songs -- details at 8!

As for details on the space, hoping to use his backline there, but ready to put one together myself if need be. Don't think there's a keyboard set up, though, and that's in Spud's vehicle. Hey, it's got a roof, electricity, bathroom, and fridge, with neighbors used to rehearsalating there ;-)

Really wish I hadn't been gentrified out of my old apartment, that was some good comfortable practice space (as some of you tour monkeys may remember ;-) ).
Did the rehearsal space situation get finalized? Like what hours it's available and what the address is and who will be there to manage it?

Erin and I aren't planning to rehearse but BSS would like a 30 minute slot on Saturday if possible.

I think glennny is hoping to procure some of the Friday rehearsal time for the Glennny Family Jam set, too.

My band and Niveous' band are the same people and our sets are back to back, so it makes sense for us to get back to back rehearsal times, Friday or Saturday should work unless someone's planning on skipping out...
