      I'm beginning to doubt this project will ever complete...It's now almost a year late and I see that Jamie has been busy, just not with this project...his band AdrianGale has been playing live gigs and just released a new album. Not cool, not when you took our money for a Guardian project over a year and a half ago. No updates, no product...I'm thinking I was taken...I really thought these were guys I could trust.

      Hello Fellas ! Are we there yet? How much longer? I was hoping for a Christmas surprise last year, and now, do I get my hopes up this year? Clearly super anxious, and curious as to what is taking so long? Anywhoo... some kind of update would really help simmer me down lol.

      I noticed the pledge amount hasn't gone up since the goal has been made. I will try to do what I can to keep the pledge amount going. I believe there is a lot more to this than just reaching the minimum. There is packaging, distribution costs, etc..... the list goes on.
      The word still needs to get out !!!

      Creator Jamie Rowe on April 22, 2012

      Mario is correct. We had a number of people not chose any rewards. I'm getting ready to post the breakdown of pledges as an update. I now of some other bands from our era who are considering doing a KS run..it might help show them where the people discover. ours was most certainly facebook.

    27. Img_0075e.small

      Creator Mario Marroquin on April 21, 2012

      DOMERCQ Cedric: Your pledge and your reward are not one and the same -- Let's say you pledged $500, but you want to get one of the $50 rewards, that would seem like there are $450 missing, even if they're not. Also, there are some backers who are not asking for anything in return (other than the CD, once its complete), they just pitched in to help the cause.

    28. Missing_small

      Creator DOMERCQ Cedric on April 21, 2012

      Just curious, I'm a backer. When I add the total of all the pledges, it's about 20000$.

      From where came the 10000$ to reach 30000? Let us know Jamie!!
