So my flexi disc came in the mail today. I’d love to listen to it but I’ve got to find a record player first.
4.5 hours later…
I hope you can tell who’s who
New kick starter update
I’ll post the full one later but in summary the album is now being delayed.
I really wish i could have gotten one of these but I didn’t have enough money to back $100 :( Oh well (I’m still getting the album though)
12 hours to go! Documentary! Album Title and Art Revealed! Come hang with us on Soundrop in the final hour!
You guys, last night’s concert was such a blast! I hope you had half as much fun as we did. In case you missed it, we saved and posted the livestream capture:
Sorry that the video wasn’t higher quality, but we had to use a MiFi and wanted to make sure we had good quality audio and that the stream wouldn’t cut out - we’ll see if we can’t upload some higher-quality video clips of the show at some point as well.
We also officially announced the name of the album - “The Near Future” and gave a first look at the first panel of the cover art by the ever-epic Ryan Mauskopf, who did the album art for KABOOM! as well
Finally, with under 12 hours to go, we’ve hit all our stretch goals and we’re cruising on towards glory! Any money we raise from here will go to improving the documentary and the album, and especially on the documentary side every dollar we raise will help us in big ways.
And, to wrap everything up, we’d like to invite all of you to come join us in a collaborative-playlist Soundrop room tonight at 8PM US Central Time as we hang out and listen to music and livechat for the last hour of what has been the most amazing, exciting, and humbling experience of our creative lives:
Your friendly neighborhood Dragon Fighters,
Brian, Hari, Bill, Chad, and Packy
Map Vs. Compass
I’ve always been someone who wants a map. Goal-oriented people are all about maps, because they tell you where you are going and how to get there.
The trouble is, maps aren’t very effective in times of constant change, because they become outdated by the time they’re published.
I think the more important tool in these times is a compass.
It’s the itch. It’s practice. It’s mastery.
It’s completely abandoning the map.
Who knows where you’ll end up? I certainly don’t.
But at least I know that I’m heading in the right direction.
