THE FINAL COUNTDOWN MARATHON SHOW IS HAPPENING!

YES! Congratulations to me and to you, because this August you're going to get to watch me kill myself via playing 50+ songs in a row. That's right! Over 7k has officially been donated to my KickStarter fund and so I'm going to do a live-streamed marathon performance of every song I've ever written in celebration of the finale. It'll be you and me and a bunch of people you've never met, all chatting and watching me die, and we're going to have so much fun! BYOB!

Stay tuned for the exact date (it will probably be a Sunday afternoon in late August).

THANK YOU SO MUCH to everybody who donated. You're making dreams come true, you know. I really hope everyone likes the record I've (almost) made.

And as one more reward, I am going to record the audio of the entire marathon show and everyone who donated will receive a digital download of it. That's a shit ton of songs, you guys. If you want in on this super crazy collection of songs, you've got one more day to make a pledge and get your name on that list.

I love you. You're the best. Seriously!!!!

One day?!! SERIOUSLY?!

You guys. I thought this was going to take two months. You have made my dreams come true.

So here's how Kickstarter works: no money is exchanged until the date I've set: August 1, 2009. This means I've got 74 days until I can actually get the 2,000, but it means I've got 74 days to keep raising money for my new EP. If we raise enough, I could make a full-length!

Let's go!

I'll be updating my Twitter throughout this whole project with new ways to get involved. Follow me!

THE ORIGINAL POST:

I'm attempting to raise $2,000 by August 1, 2009 to press the first 1,000 copies of the EP in eco-friendly digipaks that will look and feel wonderful and be worthy of all the ears who'll be listening to it.

You'll notice the rewards listed to your right. For specific donation amounts you can get things in return. Everyone who donates will get access to exclusive updates. Everyone who donates $5 will be listed on my website. For $10 you'll get an exclusive non-album track when the EP comes out. For only $50 you can get your name in the liner notes, forever and ever 'til the end of time! Awesome?! The rewards get better and better, and for each one listed you'll get everything listed before it too. Wow!

So help me make my dreams come true! You are the reason I am able to make music, so I want to make it the best I possibly can.

Thank you!!
