    Dear Friends,

    Please, if you will now let me entice and excite you with the
    launching of “Eldorado”. What is it you ask? Well, if you stop your blood
    doping for a sec I’ll tell you. It’s some kinda car, I think, and/or a lost city of
    gold, but for our purposes it’s what we’re calling the new subscription
    service, (by we I mostly mean me).

    See I really like making songs for you, and with you, and also covering
    your favorite songs, Clem Snide and otherwise. But I can’t launch a
    Kickstarter campaign every month and I know many of you don’t have $200
    to spend so ephemerally. If you subscribe to “Eldorado” and pay the meager
    $8 US a month you will receive, as well as inspire, a new and exclusive 3-5
    song EP emailed monthly right to your door.

    I don’t just want to peddle some tepid live recordings, or t-shirts, or
    whatever. I want to make something new and weird and fun. So to join
    Eldorado is not just to be a passive consumer of music but an active
    participant in its creation. There will be a special email address to which you
    will send your thoughts, ideas, words, lyrics, pictures, unfinished tracks,
    anything really, so long as it’s fits in an email.

    I will then tenderly scour these emails, randomly choose a few, and get
    crackin’. Also it’s safe to say that there wont be many members, at first, so
    there’s a good shot your email will be honored, at some point (I would try
    and hold out for at least a year to see where it can go). I will send along
    update emails to you as well. Now I realize this is mostly unchartered
    territory, so as we swing our machetes through the underbrush I welcome
    any and all of your questions and suggestions; and if nothing else you can
    always cancel.


    p.s You also get (for free) every new Eef/Snide release plus 2 tickets to a
    show of your choosing. And big big thanks to Black2Red (formerly Go Hero!)
    for making this actually possibly real.

    EEEEEEEEF!!! I’ve been a fan of your music ever since I saw you open for Ben Folds back in 2001. I love your creativity in not only connecting with your fans but finding a new way to make a living as a musician in this age of free file sharing services. And all without sacrificing your art. Looking forward to the new service! Bravo, sir!

    Dear E:

    A longtime fan, a longtime Bkln resident, and a longtime human being. Count me in. And please, please, PLEASE … make certain there’s VALET PARKING at any web site you create for this project.

    This is a fantastic idea. I couldn’t be more satisfied. Thanks, Eef Barzelay.
