The Postcard Project (and the debut of the behind the scenes of the music video video!)

Greetings From Somewhere Else!

OK, here’s the deal. I know that most of you can’t travel as much as you’d like to. Life gets in the way of being able to drop everything and head out for destinations unknown. I completely understand, and I definitely know that I’m one of the lucky ones that gets to travel for his job.

I brainstormed up this little idea while heading out to Mississippi this weekend– an idea hatched by the road, created for the road, and constituting of the road. Here’s the deal (and I’ll only leave this up for the next week or so): I’ll send you a postcard from me, to you, personally selected whilst out galavanting around in the western region of these United States. I’ll write a note on the back of the post card… I’ll buy the stamp…. I’ll even drop it into the mailbox. The whole Postcard Experience, 100%!

But that’s not all. Remember Alone, But Not Lonely? We recorded more than the 12 songs we put on the album, you know. So where have those extra bonus songs gone?

Actually, a better way to put that would be where are those extra bonus songs going?

Straight to your inbox, of course.
I’ll email you the direct from the board, unmastered versions of Goodbye, and Baytown in all of their digital MP3 glory.

So that’s a personal postcard from somewhere out west, and two unreleased bonus songs.

How much will this super amazing deal set you back? Well, that’s up to you. We’re going to use the tip jar model for this one– if you think this is worth $5, cool. $10? Even cooler? $10,000? Well, I’d say you were crazy, but I’d only say that after I made sure your check cleared.

Make sure you include your email address as well as your mailing address when you throw your invisible money into my invisible hat (via paypal). I’ll email you the MP3′s (one at a time, so if you donate, and you don’t get the email instantly, and I happen to be on a stage somewhere playing, you’ll know why), and I’ll write you a nice little note from the road.

Just another quirky little way of saying I hope you dig what I do– because I really appreciate each and every one of you.

Oh, and one more thing– remember that video we said we were shooting for Room # 27? Well, here’s a little behind the scenes video of our, uh, video featuring the fantastic cast and crew that made the whole thing possible. We’ll have the finished product for you soon, but in the meantime, we have this! Let me know what you think!

    Looking forward to the video.

    I was a special extra in “The Rookie” starring that Quaid guy. I sat in the hot sun for four hours to film a 3 second scene. It got cut. Figures.

    Drew this is great! You’re hilarious! I guess I will try and ignore the Jersey “water” remark for now…. :)
