Yeah, I'm definitely looking forward to this years releases. I just hope they're not too pricey. It'd be great if they are around the same price that The Third Mind Movements CD cost. That was a great album, at only $15, too!

It's getting hard to keep track of all Sleazy's projects!
Well, I do feel we're in for a good TG year in 2010. It sounds like there's some nice releases lined up.

Angus, please don't even get me started again on MY personal feelings on the "card"! : ) You already know exactly how I feel about it. Haha..I still can't believe I paid TG money for that card! Let me put it this way: Sleazy just sent out (to the people on the Threshold House mailing list), FOR FREE mind you, as a Xmas gift, THREE credit card sized cards, FOR FREE, that were laminated & as thick as credit cards, too (unlike a flimsy card that shall remain nameless), with beautiful  colour photos on them, from Thailand, from his new project (www.sacred-profane.com). The photo was on one side, with "Have A Happy 2010!" on the flip side. Oh, did I mention that the 3 cards were FREE! : ) Now IMHO, that's what TG should've done with their cards! Laminated & made them credit-card thick, like Sleazy did, so they won't bend, wrinkle or end up getting dog-eared years down the road! Damn! I knew I shouldn't have got started. Now I'm stewing on the fact that I actually paid money for the Gristleism card! Haha...

While we're on the subject, does anyone agree that the "card" itself is a bit lame? I was hoping for something more like a sturdy postcard. Perhaps with a picture of Camber Sands on the other side. Though these do remind me of those old "cigarette cards", which is rather cool. A TG cigarette packet would be cool. 10p for a packet of fags, anyone?

Thanks for the review link, Angus. And I'm with you. I also like the 4 unused slogans a lot better. Wonder why they didn't use them? IMHO, I think that TG should have used those four that you listed, along with four more, to have 3 different cards of slogans for all 3 colours. That would've made more sense. Unless TG already did do that and I'm only aware of the 4 slogans that came with mine.

Of minor interest perhaps.
I checked out this review of the Gristleism:
http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/music/4211101and it mentions four Gristleism slogans that, as far as I understood, were not amongst the ones listed as being with the units. At least I never heard of them before. They are:
"Entertainment Through Pain", "Ugly As Your Pastime", "Assume All Communications Tapped", "Data Is Nothing, Action Is Everything"
Personally I think these are much better than the ones that went out.
