Hi! As of today, it looks like about 75% of backers have received their rewards! The rest should get them soon, as they've all been shipped (unless you're local and we arranged a pickup). The international packages are being slow as international packages usually are... looks like they are in Florida being processed right now. But all packages are on their way!
I'd like to ask a favor of everyone. If possible, could you post a picture of the items or you with the items, or something like that on your social media? Partially this is because it will just make me super happy to see that you are super happy with your swag! But of course, it's also a good thing to do to promote the album as well.
Please let me know if there are any issues with your rewards!
One more thing. Many of you have already seen this, but for those who haven't, I thought you might get a kick out of the promo video I made. It's a parody of the old K-Tel commercials. The voice is Thom Bowers, who is one of the Kickstarter backers as well as a professional voice actor!
Cheers, Wendi xoxoxo

I dropped the packages off at the Post Office yesterday, and according to the tracking system, it worked this time! They are all in the system and winging their way to you.
There are three of you I haven't shipped to yet, but I've been in touch with you separately about that. Everyone else -- your stuff is on the way! Check your mail for a tracking number which would have gone out late Friday or early Saturday.

Today is the day! If your pledge included the digital version of Looking for Buildings, you should be receiving an email any second now with your download code for the album! (It's at the email you gave Kickstarter. Of course, as always with stuff like this, if you don't see it, check your spam folder...) As backers, you are getting your copy of the album early, because I can also announce an official release day for the rest of the world: October 22! Pre-orders on Bandcamp should be open next Friday, so start telling your friends about it soon!
To use your code
The amazing Futureman Records will be putting the record out! So for now, you need to go to their Bandcamp page at https://futuremanrecords.bandcamp.com/yum and enter the code from your email. Then Bandcamp will let you download the music in your choice of several formats. If you have any trouble, let me know!
The other rewards
The keychains are here! And they are so cool! They came out exactly as I hoped. Check 'em out:
I am very happy with them. I ordered them from PrintGlobe and can recommend them if you have a need to order something similar. There are lots of people selling hotel-style key chains out there, but the price and speed of production at PrintGlobe was the best.
The t-shirts are supposed to be here later today. The cds are supposed to be here very soon. My current estimation is that I will be able to ship things by next Friday, but I will let you know if that turns out to be a miscalculation.
Thanks, and if you got the digital album today, I hope you like it! Please let me know what you think!

I've got news!

Hi and thanks for your patience! I know it's been more than a week since the last update, but I didn't want to bug you again without some actual dates.
So here's the first bit of news!
Backers will get the download codes for the digital version of Looking For Buildings on Friday!
I'm still waiting for dates for the CDs, but I just didn't want to make you wait any longer for the digital album.
The T-shirts are on the way to me and should be here on Friday. The company that makes the keychains didn't give me a tracking number, but FedEx says a package for me is in Oakland, CA right now -- I'm pretty sure that's the keychains. That package is currently expected to show up here on Thursday.
The stickers are already here and ready to go.
I am shipping all of this stuff in a single package to each person along with the CDs, though, so when I get to ship to you is all up to the CD manufacturer now.
This all feels to me like it's been forever, but it's actually been only just over two weeks since Kickstarter paid me, so this is actually going really quickly! I'm just impatient. :D
