24 Hours To Go!

Another great day gets us to 400 backers with 24 hours to go. Hard to believe it draws so close now, the final day, Friday (or almost Friday), nearing the end of a long and productive campaign and week for all of us (I hope), and a night and day of celebration as we whistle Dirt Floor, and Hotel Vast Horizon, and belt out Phonecall from Leavenworth, Dead Cowboy song, and whatever else comes onto the ipod, or cd player, or record player, or spotify. We hope you'll join in and blast the tunes all day, and tell everyone around you what you're listening to and that we're all a part of making an incredible and special documentary about a truly amazing artist, and that it's not too late to join in and get involved. A documentary that's been touched by hundreds of gracious and generous beings, all with extreme love and admiration for a remarkable artist and man, for his genius, talent, spirit and grace.

We're indebted to all of you, banding together to come huge for the opportunity of helping us tell this story of a once in a lifetime artist and man. A guy who profoundly influenced and effected all of us, and moved us for so many years. He moves us still! We thank you for your part in this, past, present, future, and however big or small, and for helping push it through the finish line on wheels, where in 24 hours, some incredible Chris album, some subtle or not so subtle masterpiece, should just about be coming to a close, and those warm and fuzzy feelings should start to kick in all over again, knowing that we got there. High fives to all of you who are making this happen. Endless love. Friday starts now for me, starting a play list with of course, Dust Radio, and then I suppose we'll see. Let us know what you're listening to. 24 hours to go!
