So, I’ve been thinking…
It’s probably about time I put together a new index for my products. It has been a while since I’ve taken inventory of everything I’ve got, and things have a way of changing over time. Old products are replaced by new products, some become obsolete, some fall by the wayside.
Likely, this post will be updated now and again, just like some of the others on this site.
Note: pricing noted here may not match up exactly with listings on sales or order pages. This is because I’m currently revising prices, there’s a promotion in effect, or I haven’t had the opportunity to update this post in a while.

This has been a big week for David Andrew Wiebe (and, of course, I say that with all due humility… NOT!).
At long last, it’s coming to fruition, my plan to be in multiple places at the same time (how is it done?!).
Okay, that was maybe a little vague. So, before I go off on another shiny object tangent, here are some new places you WANT to find me this week.
Adrenalize Def Leppard Fan Podcast
As noted yesterday, episode zero of the Adrenalize Def Leppard Fan Podcast has launched! We also posted two audiograms on the new Adrenalize social media.
Episode zero is obviously an introductory one, and it’s there to set this project into motion.
Before anyone asks, yes, The New Music Industry Podcast will be back shortly… boy, it’s been a spotty year for that one, huh?
I’m also cooking up a new case study for Music Entrepreneur HQ.
Well, I’m actually over a week late in sharing this, but better late than never? Maybe? Nah… I guess it doesn’t count.
Nevertheless, my article on 5 best ways to promote your song is live on Bandzoogle, and it’s an exquisite read. Go down to the wine cellar and procure your finest wine, fine citizen, because you will savor and celebrate this piece as if it were the finest of complementary aged cheddars (or insert your favorite cheese here). Cheesy but delightful.
You can find this one on Hypebot as well.
Getting an article onto Soundfly has taken much longer than anticipated, but at long last, some recognition! What took you so long, guys? Seriously? I came up with this damn music entrepreneur thing and I’ve been talking about it since 2011 for crying out loud. Geez, you think people might give you credit for a damn thing around here…
My How to Write an Award-Winning Film Score article has been making its rounds in a variety of circles (links below), and it has finally infiltrated Soundfly / Flypaper as well. Muahahahaha… 😈 our plans for world domination valuable contribution are progressing smoothly.

Much thanks to Jared Moon and all contributing team members at Music Entrepreneur News for this piece:
The Renegade Musician Interview with David Andrew Wiebe
It’s been a blast talking about my new book… and it’s a guarantee that this won’t be the last you’ll have heard of it. There are plenty more interviews to come, and I’m excited to share about what is sure to be my most controversial book yet… please don’t cancel me, I’m only human.
And, given half a chance, I would ramble on about it endlessly right here on my blog. But the majestic overlords have put a cap on my word count, and I must abide by their laws, or I shall be struck down by an electrified limp pickle. It’s not as pleasant as it sounds.
Oh, but please do reach out to me for comment if you’re an attractive, lovely, intelligent, beautiful, strong, go-getter of a media person. And I have it that all media people are attractive, lovely, intelligent, beautiful, strong, go-getters. 😉
Later for now!
Today, we launched episode zero of the new podcast, the Adrenalize Def Leppard Fan Podcast.
Given that it’s “episode zero,” it’s a short and sweet episode, but it does hint at things to come.
No matter how many podcasts you start, though, it seems like it always takes a few episodes to find your footing. This will likely be the case with the new Def Leppard show as well.
Either way, though, I feel like I haven’t had this much fun in a while. And that made me think… maybe that’s what’s been missing from my business efforts. Humor.
Humor is a magical thing. Obviously, we all like to be entertained. We all like to laugh. But humor can do so many other things.
Humor can soften blows. When harsh truths are revealed through humor, they tend not to hurt as much.
Humor can work like a hall pass for parodying what some might consider “sacred.” Just look at “Weird Al” Yankovic. Of course, there are people who don’t like him all that much, but even the artists he’s parodied are generally thrilled to be lambasted by him.
That’s the hope with our new podcast as well. I have a lot of respect for Def Leppard, but I’m probably going to be trying some crazy things. I’m going to be letting loose. And I’m hoping that humor will gloss over anything that might hit listeners the wrong way.
But like I said yesterday, the new podcast and merch line feels like a sandbox in which I can play without restraint. It’s all an experiment anyway. If all goes according to plan, it’s going to take off, but even if it doesn’t, if I have the time of my life doing it, it will be well worth the effort.
Fundamentally, though, I’m doing this to leave Adrenalize in a better state than I found it in. That isn’t to say there’s anything wrong with it. Rather, I want to see it take off as it has never taken off before and support my friends in taking their careers to new heights. To that extent, I believe it will become another great case study I share on Music Entrepreneur HQ.
To top it all off, I am working on some new music for the podcast, some of it ridiculous. I’m having a blast.
This quarter, I have a new focus. I shared a little bit about it yesterday, but here it is in a sentence:
I’m launching a new Def Leppard fan podcast and merch line.
We’re officially three weeks into the project, which of course I intend to document as it unfolds.
At this point, we’re still very much speculating on what’s possible, generating ideas, and looking for team members, but there is a bit of an esthetic that’s quickly forming.
I’m starting to see this project as an opportunity to be as outrageous as I want to be. I’m seeing it as a sandbox in which I get to play and be as ridiculous and crazy as I desire. And that’s why it’s going to be a success!
I’m especially excited today that our first T-shirt has launched!
Here it is:
Yes, like I said, it’s completely outrageous. And that’s what makes this fun! This may be the first entry into our merch line, but it certainly won’t be the last.
I’ve already had some questions about the new shirt, so here’s a convenient FAQ, just for you:
