Help Izzy Meth Make Music: Books/Comics Sale

My son Izzy Meth writes:

If I told you all I ever wanted was to play music, it wouldn’t be true because I also wanted to play baseball. But I’ve been playing drums since I was 8, guitar since I was 12, and then learned piano and bass. My songs are now being released on all digital streaming platforms... 
To get to the next level, I need to spend money on promotion, so I’m now giving music lessons (inexpensively) and I am available to play on people's tracks. Also, my father, author Clifford Meth, is running a sale... I don’t want gifts or donations—I want to work. If you like my music, you can help by following me and one day coming to see me play… In the meantime, please see if there’s anything offered that you can use. You have my sincere appreciation and I hope to bring you music that will last a lifetime!

The following items are being sold to raise funds to promote Izzy Meth Music. Please email me the list of any item or items that you'd like and I'll send you a total with shipping. My email is Thank you for your kind consideration:
