      If these cupcakes are as yummy-li-cious as they sound, I may send you my top secret recipe for pumpkin bars. Thanks Tony!

      Tony, I received the DVD today and am watching it now. I am ten minutes in and love it. The music is wonderful. The lighting, camera work, and direction are fantastic. I am not surprised. I am very impressed. How many cameras and what kind of cameras were they?

      So, if each of us 230 backers added $5-$10 to our pledges Tony would reach his goal. I'm upping it today. We can't get that close and not reach the finish line.

      Hello Tony,
      We are so happy to be able to contribute to your amazing project. We also wanted you to know your dear rabbit, "Cotton", is doing just fine here with us, but at times he misses Portland. Good luck with this project! We are looking forward to receiving our postcards! (Remember to include a line to your rabbit)

      Tony, good luck on what's sure to be another wonderful project. My sixth grade students and I listened to some of your music and turned your project into a math problem. It was a lot of fun. I sure miss those days sitting around Strawberry and Redding picking with you and Rob. Hope to see you down the road.

      Damn Tony, rabbits and cupcakes. How could I resist? (On facebook I list cupcakes as the perfect food, they're my kryptonite). Plus it sounds like you do a mean slide guitar. Good luck.

      Hi Tony, I'm a fan of your music from Tokyo, Japan. Unfortunately I've not had opportunities to see your live performance yet. So I'm really glad to find you will make a live DVD. Hope this campaign will succeed. Good luck!!
