Clean cars and musical memories
Today I washed my new car for the first time. The car is actually not new; it’s eleven years old. But since I just bought it last month [a decision resulting from the regrettable yet anticipated death of my ghetto moon car] everything about it is new to me! The new windows that roll all the way down, the way I can eat bananas while driving because it is an automatic, and the new scratches on the back bumper from our garage door. It’s an old thing made new again.
I feel very similarly about this album. We recorded the songs on this album more than a year ago, and I wrote some of the songs as far back as early 2008. So this project is actually fairly old, but with all of your gloriously dramatic and enthusiastic support it feels completely new and rejuvenated!
So thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! In four days you have given $1,271! That is more than half of our projected goal! The first night I checked Kicktsarter I was completely blown away – to be honest, I never expected this much support this quickly! Your support has quadrupled my excitement about this project. The money coming in assures me that the album release can actually come to fruition. But even more than the money – your enthusiasm for the project has made increased my enthusiasm, made this project feel brand new and given me more enjoyment in the process! You have truly changed this project for the newer and the better. And I know my friend Jesus is very much about making old things new again - so that makes me even more excited! It is such an honor to get to be a part of the “new making” with all of you!
Speaking of new things:
Tomorrow we will be releasing my very first music video for the song “Cow”, filmed and edited by Justice Ott. Be on the look out!
Save the date! November 19th is the album release party and you can RSVP via facebook at http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=265715833466583.
