we did it, dear comrades.
we're doing it.
do you see what's happening for cry-eye?
i thought this would work, but i didn't know it would fucking EXPLODE!!!!!!
i have so much to say to you all, but let me point out the most important thing, really, truly:
YOU GUYS CREATED THE RAGING FIRESTORM that made this crazed success possible.
YOU YOU YOU.
from the moment we launched, i watched you all spreading the link, creating facebook groups to get the house parties, supporting at whatever level you could, telling people what you'd done…i watched the twittersphere and blogosphere going BERSERK with shared information: that was YOU, that was not me.
it's still happening.
the word about the record and the kickstarter is spreading like madness....via the people who are supporting it.
THAT'S HOW IT WORKS. so THANK YOU. we all did this together.
thank you not only for backing at whatever level you did: but for BEING THE MEDIA.
no rolling stone, no spin, no TV, no radio...none of that.
this is the new way, motherfuckers: we come first - the media follows. not the other way around.
we all went to work and we all did our part to spread the information.
and look what it did.
the whole world is watching, and it's awesome.
the SCALE of this means we're making history.
i've been doing this crazy job for a long, long time.
and i've never felt stronger, braver, and more supported...i feel like i'm crowdsurfing on a sea of 10,000 loving arms.
it's the best feeling in the world.
you're going to be getting lots of updates from me and the team, starting NOW...and i'm going to try my darndest to make you all thrilled and happy as hell that you chose to back this epic undertaking.
and seriously? WAIT UNTIL YOU HEAR THE RECORD....you're going to flip your shit.
i go into the NYC mastering studio with john & michael this thursday to finalize the sound and song order.
i'll try to get some video for you.
i love you all so much.
i'm in a bit of a daze.
things are about to GO MENTAL....thanks for being on this beautiful ride with me, the band, and my whole team.
yesterday we did a photoshoot in NYC with my friend kyle cassidy...and this one's for you guys:

p.s. since this is the first big kickstarter i'm running, i'd love to hear your specific opinion about WHAT you'd like to be updated on. i have my list and crazy ideas, of course, but if you have ideas/questions/feedback, hit us in the comments. we read them all. HERE WE GO YO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
