“Holy Daydream” Song

“Holy Daydream” is a new a song for the last episode of this Stalwarts series, but I thought I’d post it here. It’s not too late to join the Stalwarts website! Stories, songs, stickers, and just everything you can think of that begins with the letter s. Read more about that here.

Lyrics:

Though I know, it’s not the same
It starts up every game
So it swings, hard and low
Think I’ll take my things and go

So untied and burden free
Down sidewalks light and sweet
All I know is that it seems
Completely like a dream

Holy, Holy, Holy Daydream

Though I know, it’s not the same
Holy holy holy Daydream
So it swings, hard and low
Holy holy holy Daydream
So untied and burden free
Holy, Holy, Holy Daydream
All I know is that it seems
Completely like a dream

Master Class in Music with Sherwin Sleeves

When I created and uploaded the above video, I thought I’d share it only privately on The Stalwarts website. But then I hit upon the snag that youtube permits you to privately share videos with only 50 people. And I need to share it with a few more than that.

So I thought I would use the video to pitch the AMV subscription once again.

For about 12 dollars a month, you get:

1. A limited edition CD, numbered and signed, with original artwork. One CD per month for 6 months.
2. Access to the Stalwarts website, which includes various types of downloadable extra audio (recorded walks, songs) and video (the filmed of AMV the Play, things like Master Class below. A video tour of Sherwin’s neighborhood is currently in the works). And lastly, a forum to discuss whatever you like.

A six month subscription costs $77.76. There’s a month to month plan of $12.96 and a 3 month plan of $38.88. If you’re not interested in the CD – there’s a download-only option of $45 for the entire six months.

Payment can be sent via Paypal to my email (sphurley@yahoo.com). Other forms of payment can be worked out.

Lastly – there is no such thing as being too late. Subscribers can join at any time.

The $5 AMV Subscription

I thought I’d offer an inexpensive way for people to get a sense of what an AMV subscription entails. So for $5, you can get a one month online membership. You can hear the first story, listen to the additional audio, get all the songs and see and listen to the things that members are posting in the forum.

Two examples of the additional audio:

1. Here’s a few minutes from Sherwin’s walk in the snowy woods:

2. Here’s one of the four songs from the first story:

If the subscription seems valuable to you, you can consider going forward month to month. A six month subscription includes a signed, numbered CD of each story. Only 200 of these CDs will be printed. This membership costs $77.76. There’s a month to month plan of $12.96 and a 3 month plan of $38.88. If you’re not interested in the CD – there’s a download-only option of $45 for the entire six months.

Payment can be sent via Paypal to my email (sphurley@yahoo.com). Checks are also accepted. The CDs will be shipped at the beginning of each month.

Lastly – there is no such thing as being too late. Subscribers can join at any time.

What does an AMV Subscription Entail?

The Stalwarts private website is up and running and we have around 50 members now. A Forum is currently being added for members to discuss what they like and to post their own work if they wish – photographs, writing, music, art.

I thought I could supply a little more information about what exactly is being provided to subscribers so that those considering joining might have a better idea.

Aside from the 6 stories – each episode of which will have 5 new songs – Sherwin will regularly provide more casual shows. These are 20 to 30 minute long talks that take place within the framework of the stories themselves.

By way of example, here’s a few minutes from Sherwin’s walk in the snowy woods:

The complete audio is 25 minutes or so. What is perhaps interesting about this is that these casual talks emerge from the framework of the stories themselves. So the first story “AMV40: The Three Benches” begins with Sherwin walking into town to get coffee. While his walk through the woods is described in the narrative, the actual experience of the walk is not. But one can then listen to the casual audio to actually hear the small adventure of his walk.

This concept will continue to roll out with formal stories and informal live “interiors” playing off each other until the end.

This week Sherwin will also be posting the filmed version of “Atoms, Motion & the Void” to provide subscribers with a deeper sense of his experience with the Stalwarts.

Live audio and videocasts are also planned. Again, these will take place within the context of the ongoing story.

A six month subscription includes a signed, numbered CD of each story. Only 200 of these CDs will be printed. This membership costs $77.76. There’s a month to month plan of $12.96 and a 3 month plan of $38.88. If you’re not interested in the CD – there’s a download-only option of $45 for the entire six months.

All subscriptions include full access to the private “Stalwarts” website where the stories will be available for download, as well as the regular new content.

Payment can be sent via Paypal to my email (sphurley@yahoo.com). Other forms of payment can be worked out. The CDs will be shipped at the beginning of each month. The first CD “AMV#40 – The Three Benches” will be shipped to arrive during the first week of January, 2011.

Lastly – there is no such thing as being too late. Subscribers can join at any time.

“The Three Benches” Cover Art

Kevin Kobasic (Stalwart #34) created a beautiful piece of art for “AMV #40 The Three Benches”. I’m really blown away.

The Stalwarts website will be open very shortly. Subscribers will need to register first (and once) and then be approved to visit the site.

There are subscribed members now in the United States, Canada, China, Holland, Australia and the UK. Almost everyone has chosen the six month subscription ($77.76) but there’s a month to month plan of $12.96 and a 3 month plan of $38.88. There’s a download-only option of $45 for the entire six months.

Payment can be sent via Paypal to my email (sphurley@yahoo.com). Other forms of payment can be worked out. The CDs will be shipped at the beginning of each month. The first CD “AMV#40 – The Three Benches” will be shipped to arrive during the first week of January, 2011.

AMV Subscription Update!

A number of people who can’t afford to pay for an AMV subscription have asked if there’s any other way they can join. Yes! If you have web skills, are an artist, or musician or have something you want to trade, that would be fine with me.

Also, I’ll also be offering a few honorary memberships to those who just can’t pay.

So if you want to trade or if you can’t afford it, please write me at sherwinsleeves @ yahoo dot com and we’ll figure something out.
