The immensely talented Todd Michaelsen composed and performed the fabulous title track and much of the score for Sita Sings the Blues, which are now available for streaming (free) and download ($0.99) at toddmichaelsen.com. He has lots of other great music on his site too, you won’t be disappointed.
Update: all 10 copies are now sold or spoken for.
When I recently visited San Francisco, my best friend Ian picked up the last of my boxes stored at the old apartment I once shared with my ex-husband. Riffling through the contents I discovered a treasure-trove of still shrink-wrapped copies of my first book, Depression Is Fun. This has been out-of-print almost since its publication in 1992. But now I have 10 copies here in New York, and they’re on sale for $25 postpaid (and signed, if you want) each. These puppies are going for $30, $50, and – holy crap! – almost $90 online as “collectibles.” As always, my email address is at the bottom of the middle column, the one with the pictures linking to my movies and cartoons and stuff.

Sure, there are lots of used dual 1.8GB G5 Towers with 2GB RAM and internal 80GB hard drives for sale at $800 (negotiable). But how many were used to make Sita Sings the Blues? Only this one. Also, it works good. I’m only upgrading because I have to re-render the entire film at higher resolution (1920 x 1080; it was 1280 x 720) and patience isn’t one of my virtues. I can also throw in a complete Final Cut Pro HD Production Suite, which is great except it won’t open fcp files made on newer Final Cut systems. No problem if you’re working alone. And I’m still hawking my excellent printer.
I’m selling my lightly-used Epson printer to get a new one that’s exactly like it except it uses archival inks. ‘Cause I’m gonna make a bunch of art prints and if the ink fades in 100 years, I’ll feel bad. Actually I’ll be dead by then, and probably civilization as we know it will have collapsed even sooner, but someday when alien archeologists pick through the remains of our decadent and self-destructive society, I’d like them to see crisp, clear, brilliant colors on those “Sita” prints. So, to make room for the new printer, the old one (which I bought a year ago) must GO!
Prints up to 13×19!
Color prints are beautiful, but supposedly lightfastness is only guaranteed 25 years
Mac and PC
Comes with paper roll feeder and other crap I don’t use
4 extra “genuine Epson” (overpriced retail) ink cartridges included: 2 color, 2 black
All this for just $200! The inks retail for $100 alone, which sucks but they do last a while. The printer also does plain ol’ letter size and is a fine home or office printer. Buyer must pick up from mid-town Manhattan (Hell’s Kitchen, convenient to all Times Square trains). You can use the box from my new printer to carry it, since my apartment is too small to store boxes. Act now while supplies last!
