Re: Looper CD

I admittedly haven't been following this thread too closely, but the prices
estimated seem pretty damn high to me.  $1200 for 500 CD's?  You can get
them for a lot less, do cheap but creative packaging and stay well below a
thousand.  The $100 per person seems pretty steep to me.  Maybe the
administrator type can shop around for good deals and then split the cost
among the participants.

Also, does the $100 insure either a batch of CD's back or some money from
sales?  If we're gonna do this like a standard indie release, that would
seem logical and fair.
