a thousand things: Get the Mraz Polaroid Book on Sale

a thousand thingsYeah, so this is a little annoying.

I just saw that Target is selling Jason’s new Polaroid photobook, a thousand things, for $25.73, ($29.72 with standard shipping) significantly cheaper than the $44.50 it cost as part of the Ticketmaster pre-sale a while back and the $35 still being charged at the Official Jason Mraz store. I believe the Ticketmaster price included shipping, but the Mraz store does not.

Jason did one of Target’s exclusive “Influences” CDs last year, so maybe he has an ongoing deal with them that allows the lower price – or maybe Target lowered the price on their own in response to the bleak economic outlook for holiday.

But wait… it’s not just Target. Amazon has it for $23.10 ($27.09 with standard shipping).

I’m looking through Ticketmaster and jasonmraz.com and athousandthings.com to see if maybe I’ve missed some significant difference in the books. I’ll let you know what I come up with.


Preorder the Mraz Book & Give Me Something to Write About

Business first: Today’s email from jasonmraz.com says:

This is the last week to pre-order Jason’s debut photography book a thousand things!

Featuring a foreword by Graham Nash, a thousand things is a poetic, color-filled travelogue of the myriad people and places encountered in the artist’s constant travels around the world. Dedicated to “those who stood still and those who don’t,” a thousand things includes cityscapes, landscapes, portraits, selfportraits, and still lifes?the amazing “thousand things” that surround each of us in our daily lives, if we only take a moment to see.

As an added bonus, when you spend $35 or more you can choose one free item from our Special Freebies Department.

Don’t miss out – pre-order your copy now!

And before you get too excited by the word “freebies”, I’ll tell you that they’re mostly stuff from the, what, 2006? tour. Call it the Selections for Friends tour, unless I’ve gotten my shirts confused. But hey, the book could be fun, so if you didn’t preorder it when you got your tickets for the current tour, you can order it now.

Next, I’d like to say that I feel a little bad about how little effort I’ve put in here in the last few weeks. I have bunches of excuses, mostly to do with time, but I promised myself that I’d make a bigger effort this month, and I haven’t. That should change though as Jason’s North American tour is in full swing and there will be lots to write about.

Thursday night I’m headed cross-country to visit friends who are like family and we’re going to see Mraz Friday night at the Orpheum. These are the people I saw my first Mraz show with (“with whom I saw my first show”, for you grammar sticklers), so it will be excellent to share this with them, then have lots of drinks, share some gossip, and fly back to S.F. in time for work Monday morning.

I’ll have a full post-show report when I return. If any of you want to share a show review, set list, personal experience or whatever, post it here in the comments and I’ll call it out to share with others.

We’re in this love together,
Lisa


New Mraz Polaroid Book – No Shaking Required

a thousand things

When you got your Mraz pre-sale tickets you may have seen a little box where you could select to pre-order Jason’s new book of Polaroids. It’s titled a thousand things and is a bit pricey at more than $40, but maybe you can share with a friend.

If you’re not sure whether you need it or not, you can wait until I get mine and I’ll let you know.

I don’t see any other way to pre-order at this point, but will keep you posted when it’s announced.
