      Sensational song, beautifully flowing.

      After backing this a couple of weeks back, my wife and I grabbed our copy of Garden State off the shelf that we hadn't watched in _years_.

      There was so much of it we didn't remember, and I was reminded again of what an awesome film it is. It also reminded me how many songs that are really locked in my head come from that soundtrack.

      Now, listening to this song I'm damn psyched about the soundtrack for this movie, and the movie itself.

      In a happy little place right now. :)

      You know, this project is the 2nd thing I ever supported on kickstarter. Crowd-funding a film, what a great idea. What a great way to combat piracy. I will admit I'm no stranger to pirating movies but something like this is truly interesting - near-direct access to the star/creator himself, getting all these extra bonuses for supporting the film (in my case at the level I supported I get to watch the movie on my PC before it comes out, all these nice posts from ZB himself, and a tshirt) there's more value to backing the film than pirating it. This truly can change everything about what is wrong about how things are done. I'm so glad to be a part if it.

      "Belong" by Cary Brothers is the last song of Season finale's "The Vampire Diaries" (4x23). A funny coincidence. ^^

      Even though I backed this project, I was still fairly middle of the road on Mr Braff himself and mildly concerned that this was worth the effort. Yes, I was a big fan of Scrubs for the first several seasons, but he never really clicked with me on anything else I saw him in -but here's the reason for this comment: |This guy right here, this guy is SO freakin into this movie, that he is winning me over. All these updates, all the progress... Zach Braff is so insanely excited to be making this movie, and that all of you are so excited that you helped make it possible, that I'm not ashamed at all. Even if by some ridiculous happenstance the movie tanked and was terrible (I don't believe if for one second) I would still fund this man's next one. Anyone that much in love with what they do wins my respect.
      I look forward to seeing this thing in, I estimate, another thirty-five hundred updates, or so... ; )

      Weekly playlists during the production phase of this project was the biggest draw for me to back this movie, outside of the desire to see something in the tone of Garden State of course! I'm so glad that even though we're only in pre-production we've already been given a cool freebie song today, plus a nice album recommendation (Kurt Vile) as well as that community list of music recommendations!

      Really enjoying this journey and the Kickstarter pledge time hasnt even ended yet! Good stuff guys.
