1. Crew message
Howdy All,
A big HELLO from all of us at pOoTers pSycheDelic shAcK and thank you to everyone for subscribing to this newsletter.

Well we had to publish a newsletter on the Summer Solstice didn't we??
Yeah, we ARE a bunch of old hippies so what better way to see in the Solstice than by reading your favourite email newsletter.
Things are slowing down a bit here due to both Mush O'Rune and Dr. Sandoz being AWOL at the moment.........we are wading through the emails though and tripping over the piles of CD's we've got to review in the process.

pOoTer and Sir Eel were invited down to Optikinetics again by head honcho Neil Rice for more VIP treatment during the week.
We were let loose in their awesome demo room with two of Opti's most mindblowing products, the Solar System and The Total Eclipse and Neil Rice put them through their paces which resulted in many Ooohs and Ahhhs from pOoTer and Sir Eel.
The Solar System is a massive effects unit that you shoehorn into the gate of an Optikinetics projector. It contains 2 massive wheels that each hold 8 effects wheels, the 2 wheels turn independently of each other and in turn the individual effects wheels can be rotated independently of each other and the main drive wheels, both in forward and reverse at any speed you want....WOW!!
The end result is a minimum of 64 different effects combinations that can be individually controlled via a lighting desk. This is all achieved by a cunning planetary gear system that must have been dreamed up by someone with a pointy hat and a cloak...............
We also collected the Pooterland Liquid Wheel which we both hand filled during a visit earlier in the year with many psychedelic colours......................

pSyChedelicAlly yOurs,

3. Pooterland merchandise.
For some time now we have been toying with the idea of getting some high quality Pooterland T-shirts done. These would be high quality black shirts with the Pooterland logo on the front and also a backprint with the URL and some other text. They would be six colour, using an exact replica of our current logo's and text styles.
We want to know if you would be interested in buying one of these?
The expected cost would most likely be 10 UK Pounds, plus a bit for shipping.

PLEASE EMAIL US BACK IF THIS IS SOMETHING YOU WOULD BE INTERESTED IN BUYING.

We are not going to make hardly anything out of this because the cost to get six silk screens made up is very high. What it would do of course is promote the site and possibly help us pay for other promotional materials. For example, we would like to get some high quality flyers and business cards done and we are now advertising in various magazines too.

WE REALLY WANT YOUR FEEDBACK ON THIS, SO PLEASE LET US KNOW.
