The first batch of signed CDs are on their way.
Here is the email I send out to every person who purchased the album:
Thank you for buying our new album Petals On the Path during this special pre-sale for Ottmar-Friends Subscribers. While your purchase is making its way to you, I would like to offer you the album in mp3 form right now – it’s my gift to you.
I understand if you want to wait for the CD, or the FLAC files, as they will sound better… but if you can’t or don’t want to wait, just click here for near-instant gratification:
(the URL links to a 125MB zipped folder that contains all eleven songs in 256kbps mp3 format)
Please do not share the files or the URL.
I think this is a nice way to ease the pain of waiting for the postman.
And the first reactions are in. I think this means pretty good in translation? :-)

The article lays out a laundry list of culprits, from child-rearing practices and the self-help movement, to video games and social media, to a free-market economy and income inequality.
Here is a link to that empathy test.
