That’s what I typed. The store is about to burst, and it’s only going to get worse.
Long story short and as mentioned in the F is for Filker Facebook group, we recently made a pilgrimage to Atlanta to pick up Michael Liebmann’s stock.
Filker and actor Michael Liebmann passed away on July 26, 2016, due to complications from surgery for a brain tumor. He was a native New Yorker who had lived in New York, in California and finally in Atlanta, Georgia. He was a graduate of California State University with a Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Business Administration (Accounting suboption). He worked as a legal secretary. He was also a veteran, having served in the United States Navy from 1979 to 1984.
Additionally, he was instrumental in starting GAFilk, a filking convention in the Atlanta area which has been going on since 1999, and he was known as a vendor of filk and Celtic music at local highland games and Celtic festivals.
We’ll be adding things to https://www.woksprint.com, which links to ebay and amazon if internet daemons are willing. A small few are items apparently considered unobtanium, and then there are other items that look kind of cool. There are a lot of filk albums, and there are a lot of Celtic albums.
One item I will be inputting today is the old-fashioned type of filk-album: it’s a homemade CD. Not as old-fashioned as a homemade tape, but still nifty.
It’s a lot of stock. So after thinking about it all the day long, we’ve decided we’re going to be releasing things in batches. We’ll process a box of his stock (and you’ll know we’re doing it because the store will go into vacation mode and not let you buy anything) and then we’ll rest because we have lives and music to practice. I hesitate to announce every single time we do that, but we most likely will.
So we’re announcing it now, a little late we might admit. We’ve already put a lot of things into the store. And you’ll need to check frequently if you don’t want to miss anything, I’m afraid. I just can’t bring myself to spam people with frequent updates.
A portion of the proceeds will go to the American Brain Tumor Association, which has been helping people fight brain cancer since 1973.
We’re also adding Akashik’s second chapter in paperback to the store! We’re publishers. Did you think we were having so much fun filking we forgot how to read? Ha. You jest.
