I love the people in the Facebook comments asking for a tracklisting and what it sounds like. Boy are they in for a surprise lol.

I bet there's probably someone who bought this thinking it's just traditional Billy guitar music. Because they're plenty of people saying how they want to buy it without a clue what it actually is.

when you're banned, you can't log in anymore. you can't do anything.

when you're muted, you can still log in and everything, but none of your posts will be visible to anyone else.

i have the impression the amount of invisible posts has increased recently. i only used to notice them on very big thread (like the picture thread, for example).
now a lot of smaller threads (all on the sp board?) also have the same issue.

$375*500= $187,500

So he is both trying to recoup the cost of the rack synths AND pay the property taxes on the tea shop AND line his pockets. It's Xmas time Billy, "toys for everyone." What a Scrooge.

Subtract the audio production, pressing, packaging design/printing/assembly and it's not a large profit.

Audio production would be a few thousand dollars. It's only analogue synths after all, and no need for real in-depth mixing since it's all one-take. Pressing/packaging and so forth is also not that expensive. If he got it made in China and got some cheap indie-designer to do the artwork he'd probably get off by paying him a few thousand as well.

He'll probably make about 100 smooth G's.

What's weird is that there seems to be a James element to a lot of these type ghosters: shitting on James, obsessing about James, talking racist shit about Asians etc

Makes one wonder

Of course it is still a large profit. It doesn't even cost $10,000 to press 2500 vinyls. The hat and stylophone should provide insight into the cheapness of this stuff. And on top of that he got Strawberry to do the art. Do you think that costs a lot? Bolly is taking us for a ride...

And what are you talking about "production" lol

It's crap he recorded live in his tea shop, there are 0 audio production costs.

A 5 LP box will cost retail under $100. He threw in some surplus hats and a $20 synth.

He's making at least 90% profit off this.

Production costs on a run of that size are gonna be closer to $80 a unit:
- $45 for the LPs
- $20 for the packaging
- $10 for the synth
- $5 for the cap

So that's $40k + mastering, mix etc say $5k. $45-$50k in costs.
500 * $375 = $187k
If all sold he makes around $130k.
He needs to sell 130 to break even.

There's your math kids.

I'm not buying one.
