06:52 pm - Today, the Dirt Poor Robins Website. Tomorrow, the World!
Some of you may remember my post about Dirt Poor Robins a month ago. I had discovered an awesome band with an awesome CD and wanted to share the awesomeness, especially since they seemed to be fairly unknown. A few people did become fans because of this post.

robi2106 just informed me that my post WAS LINKED ON THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE.

Go to the News, and there I am. April 11, 2008, the only news post in the last three months:
Click here to read SpectralBovine.com's review of "The Cage": "Dirt Poor Robins Thank Ludwig Van Beethoven, Albert Einstein, and Jesus Christ"
What the hell, right?? As it turns out, that post is the twelfth hit when you Google dirt poor robins. But that's nuts! Why aren't more people writing about these guys?

(I did send them a message through the website to correct the link and my name. SpectralBovine.com, hee. As if I were big and important!)

So if you missed it the first time around, I urge you to check it out now and listen to some great music! It looks like the vast majority of people only downloaded "Masquerade," but "Light in My Darkness" and "Great Vacation" are also pretty fantastic songs, so give them a listen. And then buy the CD. Come on, the album is so good it's sold out on Amazon.com. But you can still get it from the official store.

This totally beats the time my name was on the Tegan and Sara website since I bought a shirt to fund the "Living Room" video.

Current Music: Seanan McGuire - Sycamore Tree (Live at OVFF 2005)

Hah, the link goes to my thread where we were discussing how you were #2 on the Googling of "dirt poor robins" lyrics.

I did some pimping of your post as well in some communities (eta because I just remembered one commenter said that they were an acquaintance of the band... I will have to check to see if this was before or after the 11th), I must say, specifically mentioning my love for "Masquerade" so that is possible why a lot of people downloaded that one!

Also, April 11th, Dad's birthday!

Btw, I know you have the album (duh), but if you wanted scans of the liner notes, I totally did that.

Also a coincidence! I added dirt poor robins to my interests just last night!

I'm three degrees away from the band! Aha!

Just checked, the commenter was on the 14th so apparently AFTER you were mentioned on the site. Hee.

Whoever's running the site must have gotten bored and Googled! I mean, it wasn't a Google alert, since it took three weeks. I wonder how it all went down. Oh, Internet.

Awesome! There is totally no fourth wall anymore, I swear. I will check them out and, hey, tomorrow is payday so I can afford a few songs if I like 'em.

Oh. You should get spectralbovine.com if no one has it. You can just set it up as a redirect to your LJ. I have vaspider.net, from back when I had an actual, non-LJ blog.

How much does something like that cost? I might as well get polter-cow.com too, you know?

You're a legend in your own LJ!

Damn, when that one was written down, it really didn't work - I was trying to go for a variant of "You're a legend in your own lunch time" but it sounded way funnier in my head!

I'll try again:
You're a legend in your own ...... ummmm?

I guess that means you're just a legend!

I remember your first pimping of this group - I in fact had the band name written down for my next amazon trip. But knowing that they're sold out I just went to the offical store and bought the CD. So there.
