    I keep seeing "clarification of membership levels" as one of the hopes/prospects for this newsletter. I have a good hunch the only thing will be a mention that the single is discontinued. There is nothing else.  Analog is everything it was before just now without the single.  Nothing is going to replace it. Everything else about digital and analog levels stays the same.
    They've already clarified it right on the website.  https://help.pearljam.com/hc/en-us/articles/205285910-Membership-Levels shows the differences now.  The only thing that changed is they aren't producing an annual single.  Analog gets the shirt (or as they call it limited edition membership item coupon code), a Bootleg coupon and printed copy of the Deep magazine.  
    Huh. Well then... everyone loves paying the same amount and getting less, right? ;) I guess they figure inflation takes care of this. And I guess we have to admit it does... considering their shipping costs. If they aren't replacing the single with anything, I'm actually inclined to think they really are doing this because they were losing money on the analog memberships, or just breaking even maybe.
    I would be shocked if they didn't turn a good profit on that $40, and if not, someone needs to lose their jobs. You can get shirts mass produced at that quality for really a few bucks. The retail price of 45's are $10 so it has to cost them much less to produce that. I'm assuming it doesn't cost them anything to give out the digital code. And if they spend more than a few bucks on shipping for any of that then they are doing it wrong.
    Half of that extra $20 for analog should be straight profit. If they aren't netting $25-30 off my $40 fee, then someone over there has no clue how to handle money.
    Up until the early 2000s there was only "analog" and it was only $10. Now you didn't get a shirt or the code, but we got everything else for $10. I can't see how charging $40 and throwing in a low quality shirt isn't making a lot of money.
    Yeah, I actually do think that their terrible deal with their shipper would be why they wouldn't make money on the membership, lol. I think we have all known they have been doing that wrong for a long time now. I've never paid anywhere near as much for shipping with other companies as I do for stuff from 10C.
    And I bet other companies' stuff arrives a LOT sooner, too.

    Yes, of course. Also, they can be tracked, which isn't the case with 10C stuff usually, and that is outrageous given the cost.

    The MoPOP exhibit really is awesome - I was glad to see it in person. It was much cooler than I even expected, and way bigger.

    When I click to enter the contest - it keeps bringing me to either the December gift card contest or a page not found. 

    It looks like they are just going to keep analog at the same price without replacing the single. 

    I actually liked the 2018 stickman shirt but I would never wear the 2019 shirt.

    Well this answers the question if the MoPOP exhibit will be around for a while.  It was a cool exhibit, but not really newsworthy now as it's been open for 5 months. Guess there's nothing else to share.

    This. To not even address the elephant in the room is really disappointing.

    That virtual tour is pretty cool though, don't you think? For those who can't see it for real, I think that's pretty neat. Not the same, since there are interactive elements they can't see, but still, cool.

    YUP. I totally underestimated it.

    Essential to take your time. Many little tidbits mixed in amongst the obvious stuff.

    Why have a contest about a vault when a large percentage of the fans who wanted it have bought it...

    That is like when my dad gave me the Eddie Vedder - Into the Wild cd album for my birthday. Like dad, you don't think I have this already?

    Why announce a contest and not have it available on the website. 

    I don't like to complain, really. It's a band. But I just kind of feel like they are half assing it & that makes me not feel warm and fuzzy about being a fan.

    The virtual tour is definitely cool for those who can't get there in person.

    Bye Analog membership, I would say its been a blast but to be honest its been rubbish since they went to the analog/ digital levels. I will enjoy my extra $30 a year (international). Might even set fire to my white "Im analog" t tonight in tribute.
