Mix CD: Track 9

Moving along. 8 days left.

We have a video for you about the $10 perk. It's mostly about books and how heavy they can be (hence, an ebook).

We have 2 nice quotes to share with you. First, from David Branin of Film Courage:

People tell us that independent film is dead. They tell us there is no community and that our efforts are wasted. We must be insane because we BELIEVE, even when all indicators tell us otherwise. In this spirit, we hope that you will take a strong look at "A Year Without Rent" by Lucas McNelly. Here is a man who is willing to give up a year of his life to give back to indie film and support our cause.

And this one from Jon Reiss (@Jon_Reiss), author of THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX OFFICE, who tweeted that A Year Without Rent was "an extremely worthy campaign."

Thanks, guys!

Oh, and here's track 9 of the Mix CD.

9. There there
Artist: Radiohead
Album: Hail to the Thief

We all know Radiohead. They're awesome.

What I love about this song is how it builds, especially the shifts at 3:15 and 3:58, and how it just forces you into action. I imagine more than one person has been pulled over for speeding while listening to it.

But you don't need to hear me talk about Radiohead. What you really want is a video. Enjoy.

Here's a live acoustic version:
