Romo tells me that 33 shipments are going out today, so some of you who have been waiting a while for your first tape can start making space on the shelf.

Hello Doc

I am not the Chartered subscribers, just wondering when I can expect the first tape would be shipped and how can I pick the 6 tapes from the 2007 collection.  Appreciated.

Thanks..hc

As to title selection, just send me an e-mail with your choices - dan at tapeproject dot com

For 2007 subscriptions, you can use the online order button. We have yet to announce or take orders for 2008, as we want to get better caught up on the 2007 orders that are rolling in before we pile on more production.

A stack of cover art for TP-001 is on its way to the duping facility, and the more recent orders for TP-001 should be getting caught up soon.

We are working on TP-006 next. TP-005 requires some special treatment in duping that requires us to reconfigure the duping setup a little, and we need to schedule a solid block of time to do a single marathon duping run that will make all the tapes. While we wait to schedule that in we are pressing ahead with titles we have already been duping.

Hoochie Mama another shipment notification!
My tape reel runneth over.
I guess you must be trying to beat the Passover mailing rush.
Now I will have to decide what machine to finally put my money on!
Until there are enough tapes to fill an entire shelf, I think you should commission the TP bookends made of rare earth metal, soapstone, or plastic resin in the shape of a $ sign with rhinestones embedded for added sparkle.  Once the shelf is full, I can use the bookends for our mastiff's dog collar bling.
Nothing like being mauled in luxury.

C'mon I don't own a fancy car or a mansion I have to display conspicuous consumption somehow.
These tapes sure do look purdy just sitting in the box.
Speaking of which can you offer an ermine covered option in case you want to pet your tape?
Purrfect.

Oh thank god! I just can't tell you how happy I am to hear that you're getting your tapes now. They are pretty nice though. I need to find a nice shelving solution for my overflow of tapes. Besides the TP issues, I've got about 70 7" tapes just sitting on the floor right now. The 4 TP tapes have displaced some books for now. A trip to Ikea is probably in my near future.
BTW thanks for the newspaper clipping. I'll have to check with Walgreens to see if they stock that product,.. or maybe the local feed and grain.

Thank heavens for Chef Boyardee as well.
Yes the drought is over.
I thought I should be as effusive in my appreciation as I was in my lamentations.
I feel a tone poem coming on.
Glad you like the clipping.
With your moniker it was a no brainer.
You may want to try an army surplus store for ample supplies.
Care to supplement your thumbnail?
Ikea?, say nay noble sir. This is a job for Ethan Allen at the very least.  Where is Corinthian leather when you need her, ur it I mean it?

The drought is over.
Come over red rover.
Mr. may I?

Ode To A Box of Tape

The tape is in the mail.
I exclaimed what the hale?
With my luck this can't be me especially with packages three.
But sure enough on that fateful day.
I received a UPS email instead which said
"Please wait another day.  Your shipment is in route and we will be sure to be there on a certain
Tuesday'.
What can brown do for me?  Deliver safely my packages three.  Keep them dry. and watch the afternoon sun.
I do not want my TP tapes done to a golden brown....
What can you do to me?
So home from my appointments I flew careful not to break wind or the speed of 15ips sound.
I rushed to the corner of our entry and peaked around
The corner (to find on the little platform I provided to keep the tapes above the porch floor so chilly)
I found three conspicuous boxes.
I grew giddy and sill...ier than normal.
A word I am rarely associated with.
I was so excited I almost pithed.
But to my horror I also spied
A severely dented carton.
I almost cried.
Forsooth
Forthwith
Boy now I was really pithed!
All this money all this time.
Could Brown be charged with some heinous crime?
Man handled was swell compared to box handled oh hell
hath no fury like a listener scorned.
I rushed to the pantry and grabbed a blade.
Perhaps I should wait until I was less dismayed but NOOOOOOO.
My hand trembled as I clutched the knife.
One false slice and my tape might need to be spliced.
The Ronco mince-o-matic came to mind, but that's a story for another time.
Now I tell you all the rest; as best I can.
Just as I was set to parry,
My mind leapt to greater horror.
The situation might be further antagonized if the knife I used was not demagnetized!
( OK  I know that was lame, you try to rhyme something with magnetize.
This is poetic license in action!)
Dropping the knife in mid swing I did what I thought was the only prudent thing and ripped the tape off with my teeth.
Icky sticky tape syndrome was not a worry as I had previously brushed flossed and gargled in a hurry.
A drooler I am not.
But if I suddenly sneezed, what about human snot?
(Again I digress)
It was truly a miracle that the tapes even made it to the correct address.
Anyway,
The tape removed I raised the box flaps up, wheels down my aviator jargon still around
did not dissuade me from my task to see if my TP presentation case had a nasty gash.
But it was safe no need to worry.
The bubble wrap saved the day although most of Mr. Bubbles had seen a better day.
Popped and deflated they may be but only slight corner compression on the TP presentation box was all I could see.

A happy ending you might believe, but my lack of luck won't let me be.
For now with TP tapes in hand
Which RTR machine to buy is my next plan to hatch.

But in the meantime I sit and spin each reel of tape upon my furry pointed chin
at precisely 15ips and  wonder of the glory of the master sound when to finally receiving my dream tape machine I get around
To.

The End

Can you tell us what the difference is between these two tapes since both are Decca's?
