Bubsa Sings for Charity: What happened next.

Recommended Posts

Hello strangers.

 

Just thought I should tell you and thank you that your efforts and generosity helped raise the money above. That's nearly $3000 for various charities.

 

The album is no longer on iTunes - not by choice, however. I received a not so friendly email from Jagex citing libel and copywrite. Sales were down a lot so I thought it wouldn't be worth the hassle - for now.

 

As for me, I'm still plodding along. If any of the old guard are still here and fancy a chat, pop me a PM or something. Hope you are all well.

 

Take it easy. And my unreserved thanks and gratitude once again.

 

 

 

 

Keeping the original thread in this quote chain for reference.

Another update, another great contribution from you merry, merry people. So close to Christmas! :D

 

 

 

The sales are slowing, though, so it could be that the album has run out of life. Although, if you fancy spreading the word around a bit more, through games, IM, forums, or even in real-life (you have no idea how surreal it is to have someone come up to you, showing your song playing on their ipod!) - Then let's get one last of hurrah out of this and raise some Xmas Cash for a charity!

That's nearly $500! Thanks so much guys!!

 

 

 

This month, the money is going to the request of deathlord552:

 

 

 

I'm thinking that I'm gonna finally give those songs a test drive and if I like em, buy em. But, I would love you forever if at one month or another you can to The ALS Association. My Grandfather died of that when I was 6, so it's a bit personal, but also it's a horrible disease.

 

 

 

For those of who who don't know, ALS is also called Lou Gehrig's Disease. You can find it about it from the link I posted or a search engine search, but in a nutshell, you body slowly (or rapidly) deteriorates and your mind stays in tact. So, constant pain and slowly, consiously watching your body cease to function... ghastly.

 

 

 

Edit: If anyone is interested; Tuesdays With Morrie: An Old Man, a Young Man, And Life's Greatest Lesson By Mitch Albom is a great book that gives an insight to a man suffering from ALS (though his progressed much faster than my Grandfather's). I also believe that some kind of movie, television or otherwise, was made of the book. I don't know though.

 

 

 

It's a great cause and, after some research, the way they conduct their work and their incredibly low administration cost gave me even more belief in the charity. Thanks deathlord, hopefully all the money you have all raised will go some way to helping them. <img src='http://forum.tip.it/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/happy.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='^_^' />

Another brilliant month! You did it you guys, you're totally heroes!

 

 

 

I was expecting just a few more sales, but it's actually got better! Thank you once again.

 

 

 

The charity money for this month is going towards Cancer Research UK. As you may or may not know from reading a post I made a while ago, my girlfriend was recently diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. The greatest moment I've shared with her was getting the all-clear, so I thought it would be a duty to donate money to this charity, so that more people in the world can hear those 2 wonderful words.

 

 

 

Any requests for charities for next month (assuming this thing keeps rolling!) are most welcome. One month might have to be a London Marathon month too. That's right, the marathong's coming back out ;)

 

 

 

Once again, thank you to all of you who have supported this little project. Tell your friends and hopefully my humiliation can raise just a little bit more ^-^

You guys are heroes! This the data for the sales over the first 50 days.

 

I love you all, I didn't expect to raise this much money for charity!

 

 

 

We're on a roll, let's spread the word and raise even more money together!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

coverli0.png

 

 

 

That's right, search for Bubsa on itunes US, UK, EU, AUS or even Napster, and you'll find the album that has been piercing eardrums every hour of every day for the past year and a half!

 

 

 

Remember, all proceeds are going to charity, so, even if you can't bare to hear me sing again, a little donation could go a long way <img src='http://forum.tip.it/ipbnew/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/icon_upup.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':<img src='http://forum.tip.it/ipbnew/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/happy.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='^_^' />:' />

 

 

 

All of the money (if any at all!) raised by sales will go towards the Actionaid campaign to Make Poverty History, the same one I ran naked for in the London Marathon If you can think of other deserving causes, please let me know. :D

 

 

 

The album has now been released to the world! The whole point of this is to have a lot of fun with it, but we could also raise a bit of money as well. So, I implore you, good folk of tip.it! Go out there! Go on the streets, the homes, the forums of the world and spread the prophecy of this album!

 

 

 

Yes, there is a topic already in general, but hear me out! After consultation with Mercifull and Adam, they thought it would be a good idea to post a thread here too, seeing as so many folks in OT don't visit General, but might want to help a charity, or simply laugh at my expense. Hey, either is good!

 

 

 

The full track list is:

 

  • 1: Noobiean Rhapsody
     
     
     
    2: RuneScape Paradise
     
     
     
    3: Falador City
     
     
     
    4: (Rune)Scape Oddity
     
     
     
    5: Walking in Lumbridge
     
     
     
    6: Duel with me
     
     
     
    7: Level Up!
     
     
     
    8: Hit me with your abby whip!
     
     
     
    9: Own you noobie
     
     
     
    10: PKER! (Gotta own 'em all!)
     
     
     
    11: Wicky-wicky-Wilderness!
     
     
     
    12: Varrock, Varrock

 

 

 

Have fun, amigos!

Anyway, when i get some money, i will buy since it's for good charity. I looked at the preview for Walking In Memphis and that was great.

With so many trees in the city you could see the spring coming each day until a night of warm wind would bring it suddenly in one morning. Sometimes the heavy cold rains would beat it back so that it would seem that it would never come and that you were losing a season out of your life. But you knew that there would always be the spring as you knew the river would flow again after it was frozen. When the cold rains kept on and killed the spring, it was as though a young person had died for no reason. In those days though the spring always came finally but it was frightening that it had nearly failed.

Sweden got cancelled due to my friend being an [wagon]. If you wanna know more then pm me. It's not important enough to put into a thread of its own and I don't wanna take over Bubsa's topic.
