alright, alright... we're absolutely blown away.
Alright, Alright... We are absolutely blown away by the first week of activity for our Kickstarter campaign, and can barely put into words how thankful we are for your generous support right out of the gate. At this moment, we have over 60 backers helping fund a new Meeting of Important People album in 2012, and we would like to think of you all as the most madcap group of investors since that wacky Medici family paid for Michaelangelo to paint on some ceiling (it's been awhile since I took a history class).
Your contributions are not being taken lightly: we are preparing our rewards, writing Valentine's songs, ordering gallons of tartar sauce, and are overjoyed that our dream of making a new album might be approaching reality. To be honest, I don't know that i've ever seen a Kickstarter campaign take off on this level: we have reached 75% of our total budget in just ONE WEEK of fundraising. But, we've still got a ways to go, and aren't going to break out the champagne yet.
We are only achieving this because of you all, and this wonderful community: posting links, telling friends, and bothering those around means more than you know, and we hope very much you will stay tuned and keep MOIP in your brain over the next few weeks as we continue this campaign, helping us inform the public that we're back and ready to make new music!
Will see you all very soon. Stay away from that dog food, will ya?
