      So, being used as a sucker to fund a film is pretty sad. It seems once the film was finished, we were forgotten about. I find it hard to imagine that some is SO busy, that 3 minutes of time required to update we who helped FUND THE FILM, with where we currently are in the process. This has a sort of Godlis feel to it...thank God I passed on that project. Now I am currently backing 4 projects that have passed the 3 - 4 year mark, two of which stopped responding to ANYTHING months ago. I can imagine waving GOODBYE to Kickstarter very soon. Obviously, projects take time and with a SIMPLE UPDATE, I am OK WITH THAT.

      UPDATE TIME PLEASE. How hard is it to bang out an update? This was not a project that I had anticipated would run TWO YEARS past the estimated date. Kickstarter is becoming more aggravating than its worth anymore...

      An update on this seems overdue. Where do things stand?

    4. Nando Rossi on

      Hey, looking forward to any updates, let alone the doc itself, or even vinyl :/

    5. Doug Andersen on

      Any Updates at all???

    6. Michael Patrick Cutillo on

      Any update on the Vinyl? Or any updates at all for the Kickstarter?

    7. Saidah Blount on

      Hi - is there any update on the vinyl release? After 2 YEARS, I'm kind of thinking this may not happen (also, I moved a year ago, so I'm praying this doesn't get sent to my old address)... really trying to stay positive about this, esp as those of us outside of Chicago/travelling opportunities haven't really gotten a chance to reap the benefits....

      Julia, thank you for everything that you're doing to put this film and soundtrack together -- for keeping Wax Trax! alive, for ensuring this important piece of personal and music history is documented for posterity. I can't even imagine how much work it is, and I appreciate all that you're putting in to it! Again, thank you!

      What about the vinyl LP of the soundtrack? If you aren't releasing it; are you refunding a portion of the pledges that included the LP?

    11. Marcio Rex on


      I feel disappointed with all that glamor planted two years ago. Not even the LP with the soundtrack I heard.

      Hi, this is Birmingham in the UK calling...

      Any update on the vinyl soundtrack?

      Also, as I cant afford to fly to Chicago, I feel a little cheated out of my chance to see the movie. Let's say it doesn't get picked up for Bluray release, is that the last we'll hear of it in Europe?

      Before I'm jumped on, I am not being negative! I love this project and was happy to spend 126usd, but I feel like all the fun is happening in Chicago and we ain't getting a live stream of the Q&A in the UK.

      But, those of you lucky enough to make it to the shows, have a great time and buy Connelly a beer for Birmingham.

      so how are we supposed to get our records after 2 years? is there a place to change your mailing address for the rewards?

      I would question why that update was posted to the web, rather than here, you know, where the vast majority of backers would be looking. Anyway, glad to hear things seem to be proceeding...

    29. Chuck Bell on

      Is everything ok with the soundtrack? Is there a tracklist available yet?

    30. Marcio Rex on

      Hello Julia, how are you?

      I come to know about limited Lp MONUMENTARY SOUNDTRACK LIMITED DELUXE.

      You already have some estimates of release?

      Thank you


    31. Marcio Rex on

      Hello guys, happy 2016 !!!

      Hey Julia, as have past? On limited Lp MONUMENTARY SOUNDTRACK LIMITED DELUXE VINYL is out of the oven?

      I am anxious for it !!!

      Thank you .

      Received my reward. The small screen prints are awesome.
      Now get that documentary out and the universe will be right once again.

      Hi, I backed for the PDF but I've not received anything.

    34. Richie on

      Still have not received the pdf file yet.

    35. Paul Yearley on

      I finally got my rewards today. Thanks!

    36. Henry Swantner

      Ohp, never mind.
      It finally popped up at 1:51 am last night as "Arrived at USPS Facility". Of course right after I say something. Perhaps it's finally on its way.
      Can't wait.

      Got my rewards yesterday and I'm super-happy. Thank you!

      Henry: Same thing happened to me (got tracking notification on Nov. 29, but it never updated).

    38. Henry Swantner

      I received a tracking number, but it has remained on "Shipping Label Created" since November 28, 9 days ago.
      Is anyone else having a similar experience?

    39. Richie on

      Nothing yet....

      Hi George & Richie, the PDF download will be distributed this weekend.


    41. Julia Nash Creator on

      Hi Paul, yes there is a rhyme and reason for who/when/how the rewards are being sent out. It is a bit complicated to explain in the the comments section, but it has to do with variables such as rewards level, add-ons ordered, shipping location and even where you land alphabetically on the list of backers. We totally understand the feeling that can happen when backers start seeing items for others pop-up on social media and totally apologize for any frustration. We have another large batch shipping out this weekend as well as an update of where we are at with the entire campaign.

      -Hope that helps Paul, let me know if you have any other questions!

    42. Julia Nash Creator on

      Hi, Justin, Sorry for the confusion. You are correct, since the soundtrack LP will be produced and shipped closer to the movie release date. We wanted to send out what we could as soon as possible so backers weren't waiting on everything to arrive at once. We will be posting updates along the way so backers will know when the soundtrack is in production as well as shipping info. (Unfortunately, that date isn't firm yet)

      -Hope that help!

    43. Justin Mathews on

      I'm a little confused by the last update... but if I received my Lead Into Gold vinyl but not the soundtrack vinyl, that's ok because the soundtrack vinyl will ship later?

    44. Richie on

      Im also waiting for the pdf.....

    45. Paul Yearley on

      I'm still waiting for my stuff. Is there any rhyme or reason to shipments, or are just random bunches of backers getting stuff shipped here and there?

    46. Marcio Rex on

      Hi Julia
      I received the first shipment of the prize greatly appreciated shirts. Now I'm looking forward for Lp.

      Thank you

      Is there an ETA for the I'm Falling pdf? I remember it coming out sometime this month.

      Just received sticker/button pack. Thank you.

      Now, when do we get a chance to purchase the soundtrack! :)

    49. Chuck Bell on

      Has the track listing for the soundtrack been released yet?
