Well, dear readers, may I just begin by saying: 226%!!!  We are now very close to not only covering all the Indiegogo fees but also the dough they’re going to withhold for six MONTHS. We’re only about $250 away from that now.  So, we’re now in the final lap of the campaign, approaching the finish line and hoping to go to infinity and beyond and go the distance as we cross the finish line.  So, this is the second to last puuuuuush you’ll see for this campaign.  We’re a mere thirty-six hours away now – I believe we cross the finish line on Thursday around noon.  So, share and share alike and let’s bring this puppy home!


Yesterday, I had some really weird dreams, I must say.  I did get eight hours of sleep.  I was awakened by the doorbell – the helper’s mom, here to pick up a box and to drop off a few Too Many Girls CDs.  Then it was answering e-mails, telephonic calls, working at the piano, and working on the computer.  By the time I’d done all that (and watch our percentage go up six percent), it was time to do some banking. I couldn’t decide on food, so I just came home and finished a set of liner notes. I had more telephonic calls, several of which were with Gerrit Graham – who filmed himself talking about the Creature but can’t figure out how we’re getting me the video.  He’s not real technical and so far nothing has worked. It’s too big for e-mail, he doesn’t know from Dropbox or Hightail or anything or even We Transfer, so this is challenging.  He has it on his iPad.

Then I went to Gelson’s and got stuff from their deli – a little hatch chili mac-and-cheese, a little spicy Thai pasta, some bagels and cream cheese.  I came home and the only thing that tasted good to me was the bagel and cream cheese – I had two.  Then it was more work on the computer and more work at the piano and somehow the entire evening was gone and it was time to write these here notes.  How did that happen?  Well, this section of the notes was ever so short, wasn’t it?  Maybe I’m forgetting something that happened?  I don’t think so, though.  So, perhaps I’ll just recount the tale of The Randy Vicar and the Ball Peen Hammer.  That’s a corker, that one is.

Today, I can sleep in a bit, then it’s the usual morning stuff, I’ll hopefully pick up some packages, eat, I’ll go over the Kritzerland commentary and make any fixes I need to, I’ll get our new release announcement ready, and of course I’ll be doing the puuuuush thing several times throughout the day and evening, oh, yes, I’ll be doing the puuuuuush thing throughout the day and evening.

Tomorrow, our Indiegogo campaign crosses the finish line. So, I’ll be up by nine to take that puppy home and hopefully in a big way.  Then we have our second Kritzerland rehearsal, and then I’ll go eat something fun and definitely NOT Gelson’s.  I do have a hankerin’ for another roast beef sandwich at Jerry’s Deli, so perhaps that will be the ticket – or maybe we’ll go celebrate the finish of the campaign. That might be fun, too.  Friday, she of the Evil Eye is coming, rather than Saturday, which is good since Saturday is our stumble-through day and I’m not wanting to leave early and eat to kill time.  Then Sunday is our soundcheck and show.  Then the following week is very busy, as we begin casting The Man Who Came to Dinner.

Well, dear readers, I must take the day, I must do the things I do, I must, for example, sleep in a bit, hopefully pick up some packages, eat, go over the commentary, and puuuuush.  Today’s topic of discussion: It’s Ask BK Day, the day in which you get to ask me or any dear reader any old question you like and we get to give any old answer we like.  So, let’s have loads of lovely questions and loads of lovely answers and loads of lovely postings, shall we, whilst I hit the road to dreamland, thrilled to be at 226% and hoping to go to infinity and beyond because we can go the distance.  Puuuush!!!
