i got an email, but it wasn't in response to my invitation. it was in response to the "hi, where are you" thing. it asked where in my city i was located and if i'd like the carolers to visit my house. i thought maybe because it wasn't a response to my invitation that they might have given everyone similar responses. thought i don't think it could have been an automatic response because of how the email was written (saying my specific city and such).

I've gotten no reply. He is coming to my city, though, so I'm not too worried about experiencing some caroling. =)

if i remember, invitations are still accepted through november 10, so i don't think it's surprising that people haven't heard back yet. that being said, it is difficult to control the excitement.

i don't know how other people's cities are set for the next few weeks, but i get elf power this week, of montreal the next, and music tapes the week after. i'm in heaven.

of montreal isn't coming to michigan ): but elf power comes in january.

hopefully that email means the music tapes will come to my house!

any chance you can get your family to go with you?

thanksgiving is a big deal in my family. we all go to my aunt's place up north and have a family reunion of my mom's side of the family. EVERYONE is there. all 50+ family members. and this is the first year having thanksgiving without my dad so i should probably go be with my family. its a lose-lose situation. i'll be mad if i stay. i'll be mad if i go. i'm actually kind of tearing up a little imagining either scenario...

Yeah, this should be interesting - Thanksgiving with the Music Tapes. Well, we were going about 45 minutes away to visit my wife's family for Thanksgiving...guess we'll try to make it back by that evening. Maybe we should bring Julian leftover turkey.

i know i already asked this, but did everyone that responded to the "hi, where are you" email get something similar?

It was asked that invitations arrive by Nov. 10th, so probably right around then.

i had a spot available when i thought he was coming on the 28th, but it might be a different story now that it's on thanksgiving. i definitely want to catch one of his stops, so that would be great if any of you madison folks would open up your doors to outsiders (of course i'll do the same if i can use my friend's place).

The north Florida date is no longer happening sadly; the only invitations were much further south in the state and would have made traveling quickly from state to state much more difficult. He will try and play in Florida in the coming year.

Ah that is a shame. Well I've seen Julian (and you too) twice so far this year, once in Ohio and once at Popfest (and the awesome kazoo parade!), so I guess I can wait to see you guys again until next year. This format sounds wonderful though.

invitations can be made to musictapescaroling@gmail.com untill the night before the caroling reaches your town

i'd guess that e-mails will be sent a day or two ahead of time notifying those who have already sent e-mails.

you'll have to wait to find out :p

a quote from julian though:
after julian got done explaining how the saw sings on its own, and he merely encourages it, i say
"so its kind of like your the instrument?"
and julian says
"no, im kind of more like the chair"
haha :)

Hello everyone.

I just wanted to let you all know that your letters and emails have been received and we have not responded due to lack of time. Julian is on the road and will only have time to respond to a few letters and since scheduling the caroling takes a great deal of time I am responding mainly to those in the upcoming cities to schedule the houses and then letting everyone else in those cities know where they can attend if their house cannot be caroled. Julian is grateful for all the letters and is sincerely touched by the generosity and care that they have expressed. I'll try and individually respond to everyone's emails within the next few days. If you have any questions regarding your letter or the caroling, feel free to send me a PM.

I hope all is well and that everyone is having a lovely fall.
