Progress & Ideas for Summer Project
First of all, thank you so much to everyone who has pledged to our kickstarter campaign! Your names will be etched into the YES column of life's ledger. Secondly, I've been thinking about how several of the songs I wrote for previous benefactors have actually turned out so well that we've ended up putting them in the set and then recording them for subsequent records. It's been really cool to notice how the culmination of one project has somehow naturally led into the next one.
This time around, however, it seems we may be directed away from original material. What started out as a goofy idea for our $50 premium actually has a lot of us pretty stoked. We kind of want to learn and record a bunch of TV show theme songs!
So, if you have the means--or maybe you can pool together with some friends--pledge at the $50 level and then, once this thing is in the bag, we'll be asking you what TV show theme you would like to hear us mangle or elevate to majesty (as the case may be). Hawaii 5-0? Sanford & Son? Welcome Back Kotter? Perhaps something more current like the theme from True Blood? Something geeky like Dr. Who or Star Trek?
Again, thanks a ton!
