Helping Ariel

Postby kate » Tue Aug 09, 2011 2:27 pm

Hi. This is my first post. For many years now I have been trying to help Ariel in any way that I can. Mostly by trying to tell people about him, scribbling his name in random public places, etc. As I like to say, I am always working for the cause. I truly believe that a lot of people could be a lot happier if they only knew of Ariel's music.....but it's hard getting it out to the masses. So what I have been doing lately is making 1" promotional buttons (DIY!) and I just leave them laying around in public places. The original idea was to make them, give them to the band and let them sell them so they could make money. And I did that last year, but they have not been back my way since Novemeber....anyhow, I am looking for anybody that wants to help me with this. Just give me an address and I will mail you some buttons to distribute in your home town. Ideally, you guys are hipper than I am, because I swear the only place I ever go to is gas stations throughout the midwest (no joke, that is actually my job). The idea is that people will find the buttons and wonder who is ariel pink, they will google him and then he will get new fans that way.........there is also no real way to tell if it is working, but I do have fun making the buttons either way! I make all kind of buttons, some with just AP, or APHG, some have pictures, album covers, song lyrics, etc. I am serious, there is no catch here. The buttons cost me $0.06 a piece so I really am giving them away for free to any AP fan that wants to try to help. And if you doubt at all how much of an Ariel fan I really am, just call and listen to my voicemail - 816-721-0951, I never answer anyhow, but you can give me your address that way if you don't want to post it. thanks.

Another thing I have been doing is to leave an APGH mix CD in the CD player anytime I get a rental car. I think everybody should do this.

Thanks to Kate for sending these beautiful buttons! They are wickedly awesome! I already left a few in strange locations. Maybe someone'll be enlightened!
I strongly encourage everyone to contact Kate...she is really doing an excellent thing here! :D

You're welcome AppTrans! Thank you and Jordan for helping me! I hope you like the second batch I sent you - I think they were different. I made the "real bad liar" series yesterday... "ariel pink is a real bad liar" "ariel pink is a two faced liar" and "I am a real bad liar"... oh ya and the sensitive man series of buttons is coming to you soon too! "I'm a sensitve man"
"Ariel Pink looks better than you ever will" and "Ariel Pink is a sensitive man".....

As always, I am open to suggestions on button worthy lyrics or whatever you think might catch somebody's attention.

Great ideas, everyone. I just scribble "Ariel Pink for Life" every time I drop a deuce in a public restroom.
