If you've seen me rant and rave about my band Bobby Joe Ebola, but have never actually heard us, go ahead and click on this link:

This is where you can go to hear and buy pretty much everything we've ever released, plus a few choice recordings of live performances and even a couple of ringtones. Convenient, right? For a limited time we'll be streaming it all for free, so check it out, and if you likey, go ahead and buy it. Enjoy!

Hey! I'm working on a fundraiser for my band Bobby Joe Ebola and the Children MacNuggits! Check the link below to find out a bit more:

The link above represents an attempt to climb out of a deep and slippery psychic chasm, slicked down by debt and the speed of communications and the oil economy and all that stuff. Yes, we did the shoveling ourselves, at breakneck speed, cheered on by those who saw us piling up a mountain when were, in fact, digging a hole. Although perhaps both are true. Sometimes in art, however, it's hard to tell which way is up, and largely depends on where you stand. 

In any case, there's a whole lot of shoveling left to do, and after a bit of soul-searching we think we know which direction to point our shovels. With your help, and your continued cheering, we'll get there. Contribute if you can, and SHARE THIS LINK where you may. Thanks, friends.

Here's a fun game. If you have met me in person, you are invited to participate!
     "The Johari Window was invented by Joseph Luft and Harrington Ingham in the 1950s as a model for mapping personality awareness. By describing yourself from a fixed list of adjectives, then asking your friends and colleagues to describe you from the same list, a grid of overlap and difference can be built up."

Click on the links and pick the adjectives you feel best describes me. One is for positive traits, the other for negative traits. Go ahead and do both!

Hey there! Dan Abbott here.  Sorry for the mass email, but I'm trying to let every dang person in the world know about a fundraising thing I'm doing for my band, Bobby Joe Ebola and the Children MacNuggits.

We've been going full-speed ahead for four years now and after accomplishing a tremendous amount of recording, touring, music videos and assorted shenanigans, we've hit a wall; the workload and expenses are, at this point, an existential crisis for the band.

And just when we've built up the kind of momentum that a band needs to succeed. We've got books coming out with major distribution, bigger and better shows, and a whole lot of other opportunities coming our way. But we recently had to cancel our East Coast tour and are currently on hiatus, doing a lot of soul searching about how to make this band work without squishing us flat. Part of getting back on our feet (and back on the road) is why we're reaching out. 

Anyhow, if you can help spread the word, please share this link anywhere you can:

Obviously, if you can contribute financially, that would be awesome, and we've got a ton of cool prizes to motivate you, including books from Microcosm Publishing, records from Selfish Satan and Dirt Cult Records, and a ton of other stuff. But at this point, if each one of you shares this link, on your Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Reddit, YouTube, Instagram, Vine, Tumblr, anywhere you can think of, that would be awesome!

Anyhow, thanks a bunch for reading this far, and sorry for invading your inbox. I hope this email finds you in good health and good spirits. Thanks,

Thanks so much!

Man, I like these guys. One of my favorite hip-hop acts. Makes me just a little prouder to live in Oakland.
