    Hey people...

    just an update from me cos i had dissapeared... :D

    I dropped my hard drive earlier in the week and it um.. well it dont work.. lol.. yes, i did have everything backup up, but the drive containing the backups is in a machine which isnt working (wow a tech with one broken home pc who drops hard drives) so it held me up by a few days... up and running again now and back to normal...

    basingstoke is just uploading now.. but with any of them talk to lynn before doing anything.... (note.. basingstoke hasnt been proofed so check it first)
    hereford will be there in the morning as im now behind today and meant to be at the phoenix in half an hour and not had tea yet.. :D

    As linn says though, its all well and good getting them made up, what is needed now is help.. all of the posters have specifically been done b&w and they photocopy excellently and look bold.. and are cheap to produce - a3 copies about 7p each at kall kwik etc so if there are people out there, near a venue, who can spare about £2 - which will produce 30 posters - and do some footwork, its all in a good cause and for the artist, we after all, in here for - ok.. some here for roy, some here for nick.. but there we go

    i can produce a colour version of the flyer/poster, but have gone black and white for cost effectivness.. but colour can be produced on demand....

    Basingstoke A-OK, Dim. Andi, look but don't touch...yet!: I now will send through and formulate action plan with the Basingstoke people, and will advise after that. As I said before, for this one you may need to just collect from them and distribute.

    Yes, as Dim says, all help gratefully welcomed but PLEASE contact me first as different plans are operating with each venue. Not all venues may be on Dim's PDF, and there is a reason for that and in some towns we are already okay for help. Let me know where you are and what you could do.

    Email (if you can cc second address that will help as I will get quicker):

    okay okay!! hold your horses Linn!

    Nick's Tour 2009

    Have now entered the gigs you mentioned on Skiddle [ten I think] if you wanna check them out. Some prices and door opening times locally seem to vary but have ignored that and stuck to the £10 / £8.50 and 2000 hrs [apart from one which I will go back and change now]. Could not keep putting up different pics all the time but can also go back and re-edit if you want.

    Don't think you realise that I'm not very used to all this and several times lost the promotion scripts and just have put in a basic 'Nick Harper Live' in most descriptions coz not very good at cutting copying and pasting etc. Also when trying to find another pic of Nick from the next page kept losing everything I'd just typed at least three times.Also venues had to be added in some cases which were not listed or I couldn't find them.

    Will wait for your instructions re flyers/posters etc and have received copy from Dim. The College have printed a lovely glossy booklet with their forthcoming gigs in it with Nic's picture. If you want copies I can post to you if you give me a postal addy.

    It has actually made me realise the enormous amount of work involved promoing a tour and good luck!

    Cheers for now
    Going out for a pint!

    Well done, Andi, you deserve that drink. What a star you are.

    Just one thing, Andi, can you take another look at Aldershot on Skiddle - I've heard of advance booking but that is just ridiculous (made me laugh though!).:biggrin:

    Aldershot = NH09!

    Have changed it to this year! One of those cases I think when you haven't clicked the mouse properly and as you scroll down to the next box it affects it still. I presume a lot of local community gig sites get
    automatically updated from Central Studio's marketing but will check to see. What was that radio site you wanted help with, I can't find your previous email? The local radio in Basingstoke is called Kestrel which you probably knew anyway.

    andi Harper :m21: Fan :seeya:

    I cant make any of the gigs near me but I live halfway between Liverpool and Chester so if a flyer could be made up with Manchester, Liverpool and Chester on I can perhaps get it in a few guitar shops, newsagents student pubs etc

    Thanks Dim, do you think it needs contact numbers for the venues? I can look them up later if you do.

    Also when I click on your link my Firefox security add on(WOT)is rating it as dangerous. Are you hiding porn on there or is it just being stupidly paranoid

    Well spotted, Jane!

    Dim, think we need a bit more on. Are you able to squeeze in? And Bri needs to come off as support.

    'Dangerous Dim' eh?:biggrin:

    dim I've got a zappy little nappy

    oops... id taken page template from one with support on...

    can put numbers in, or web addy whichever is easiest... theres plenty of space...

    im kinda going venue blind to be honest... not helped by the fact someone started referring to places by venue, then moved to towns, and has now moved to regions.. its just taken me twenty minutes to realise that totton was southampton :D

    will add phone numbers or web addy, or both in the morning.. i wasnt sure which is why i put harperspace as a one size fits all...

    its been one of those days... and kall kwik have been working there poor little bums off, youve no idea how many different variations of flyers and posters i made them do today for nick, and hobo jones the week before.. :D

    firefox will be showing me as dangerous because of the redirect.. i dont host my domain directly... so the redirect might trigger it (ie.. it redirects from my domain to my hosting space... .. i also dont have a secure certificate...

    opera reports me as fine, just says i use plain text authentication, and i have no certificate... :D

    my hosts are VERY cheap.. i think they may sometimes host things that are slightly untoward... the firefox security add on is a pile of poo though.. operas inbuilt security is a lot better... :p

    Was that me then, calling them different things?:blushing: I was calling Totton Totton although it is Soton but that was to differentiate between that and T Heads Soton, which is also Soton...oh, my head hurts!

    If on the 3/way one you can manage web + tel no for each...? On the solo Chester one, details as I gave you - but hold onto as I am working on a possible support and if they do it they need to be given a good flag up (they have also offered help in Lpool/Chester, so keep em crossed!).

    KallKwik must be giving you mates rates by now, the amount of business you're giving them! Would they care to sponsor the next tour?!:D

    Dim, a suggestion/question - is there any place on these to add the harperspace web address on the ABC2 poster (or all of them if it's not there)? We were handing them out at the Classic Grand last week and I realized d'oh! that would have come in handy if people didn't already know Nick... :blushing:
  17. dim

    dim I've got a zappy little nappy

    ok.. paula hun.. you know what im about to say dont you.. ;)

    Email me.. i forget else..

    Chester.. i think i had ignored chester completely until a support had been decided...

    two colour ones im doing in the morning, if i remember which two they where... and will add more stuff to the 3 date one...

    then we are getting there.. i need more people in exeter to put posters up if anyone fancies a holiday... i also need someone to work the door for hobo jones, and someone to mop mr harpers brow a week later :D

    (actually ms bear.. are you coming to exeter for that one..? i can put you on the task force if you are.. got some tables need shiftin.. jays already got the door, and weve got the support working merch.. :D i just need a erm.. a grip? or a dolly.. something or other...)

    Email off to you now Dim :wink:

    Oh gawd I so wish :bored: Gutted I can't make it, I looked into any way it might work but it would have been a financial kick in the arse 4 days (!) before I leave for America, and the exchange rate there blows just now so I need all the spending money I can scrape together!

    I'll be your dolly next time :wink:
