So we made this movie, "Do It Again," about my quest to reunite the '60s rock band, The Kinks. It includes Sting, Zooey Deschanel, Clive Davis, Peter Buck, Paul Weller, Robyn Hitchcock and, of course, members of the Kinks.

And I think it's good. So does Variety and this fantastically named dude in Scotland.

Now I'm hitting the film festival circuit as I try to sell the movie so everyone can see it. We've played the prestigious International Film Festival Rotterdam and, in just the next two months, will hit Cleveland, Atlanta, Nashville, North Carolina, Bermuda (I know, tough job), Washington D.C., Buenos Aires and Boston.

One problem: Nobody pays you to apply to or show at film festivals. And my savings is down to $250.

I need help with basic promotion, from printing postcards and posters to having "Do It Again" buttons made. I need to be able to buy a cheeseburger when I'm attending a festival. We're also mailing out screeners to press and prospective buyers because now, with the movie finished, there's a mission: To get it on TV or in theaters so that you can see it.

    In "Do It Again," we're fortunate enough to have filmed Kinks music performed by all four members of Robyn Hitchcock and the Venus 3. Now, as luck would have it, we've been able to get our grubby paws on the soon-to-be-released cd, "Propellor Time." Here's your chance to pick it up with a "Do It Again" button and postcard.

    Talk to Peter Quaife. Ever wonder what it was really like to be in the studio - and on the road - with the Kinks during the 1960s? "Crutch" knows. He's the original bassist of the Kinks and played on all of those seminal records, including "You Really Got Me" and "Waterloo Sunset." He's also a fantastic dude. With this reward, we'll have you call Mr. Quaife in his European residence for a chat.

    Private screening of the film for you and your friends. There is a catch: You need to pay for me to come. But I promise... I fly coach, take trains and will only consume Ramen noodles and malt liquor.
