It's sort of like a PBS Tote Bag...

Wednesday, March 18, 2009

It took three months of wrestling with disk art, but the Taktaba podcast is finally ready for a "real" release.

Up until now, if you wanted the podcast on DVD, I'd burn and print it myself. But since my most important work is producing more content, not shipping it, it's now being made by a proper manufacturer.

The podcast is, and will remain, available for free online, but it's now available for purchase:



You can buy a copy there if you want to watch the program on your DVD player, or if you just want to support the Taktaba project.

Sort of like the tote bag you get when you make a donation to PBS. :)


While I'm at it, now is a good time to mention that The Improvisation Toolkit Volume 1: Movement Recall is now available in PAL format for those of you in Europe and the other great big chunk of the world that uses that format. You can buy it directly from the manufacturer, CreateSpace. (Viewers in the Americas, Japan, South Korea, etc. should still get the NTSC version.)

Old Giveaway, New Winner

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

So, way back in October, I ran a DVD giveaway for a copy of The Improvisation Toolkit Vol. 1: Movement Recall. On the day the DVD was released, I picked a winner at random from the members of the Taktaba mailing list. However, I've tried to contact her several times over the last five months, and never got a response. The messages didn't bounce; I just never got a reply.

So today, I gave up waiting and drew a "runner up".

To make it fair, I did my best to reproduce the conditions of the original drawing. I used the same random number generator as in the first drawing, and selected the runner up from among the members of my mailing list who joined on or before the DVD release date. (Luckily, my list software records the date people joined.)

So the new winner is:

(drumroll)

Najla Halem of Austin, TX

Her copy of Vol. 1 went out in the mail today.
