Solarbird, the Lightbringer, here; I spent most of the weekend at Conflikt, playing way too late and discovering a scotch I actually like way too much XD. If you weren’t there, you missed the first public playings of “Coyote” and the West Coast Style version of “Old Black Rum,” as well as me doing one of my rare slow songs, “Where Are You (My Love)?” which I wrote in part just to prove I could. Ha! You also missed a bunch of other peoples’ firsts, not the least of which was Leannan Sidhe‘s first stage show, and the only performance by the scrambleband Invader Tak and the Perfectly Normal Humans. Make it next time! XD

I took a picture of the scotch so I’d remember it, lol:

drunk – focus later

We have 18 days to go on the Kickstarter project for duplicating Dick Tracy Must Die – almost halfway through – and we’re at almost 56% of funding. Thanks to the people who have gotten us this far, and to everybody who has gone up and looked over the project and the site and are still thinking about it. I hope you’ll back this release! Click here to see the video and sign up to be a backer!1 It doesn’t have to be a lot of money – any level is welcome! And you can look at it as a CD pre-order, too, since there are rewards for backers, most of which include copies of the CD. ^_^

In other news, I forgot to include a player the other day when I was talking about the Cracksman Betty project. These are the single-day takes on traditional songs. Here’s one; enjoy:

I am sooo sleeeepy there are not words. How was your weekend?

1: If you haven’t yet, here’s how it works: Kickstarter is an arena for microfunding of creative projects. It’s a crowdsourcing venue, essentially. People pledge money, and if the target is reached, the money is accepted and paid through! If not, all the pledges are voided and no money changes hands. Kickstarter makes their money by taking a small cut. The amount I’m hoping to raise accounts for that cut, of course.
