I should probably mention this here, too, for anybody who might not be in the filk community. The folks behind the folk collection Rise Up Singing (with 1,200 songs), are now working on Rise Again (with 1,200 MORE songs). Pre-orders are possible (in fact I've already done so). If the first is any indication, if you have any interest whatsoever in folk music, this will be abundantly worth it.
A friend of mine, Blind Lemming Chiffon just announced an Indiegogo project intended to do good and release music. Something I think we can all go along with. :) A brief quote from the announcement, links in the usual place.
A 5 CD boxed set - and so much more . . .
Hi. Blind Lemming Chiffon here. You can find out more about me on my website, blindlemmingchiffon.net. You can hear some of my music on youtube. But while this is about my dream of a 5-CD initial release, that's not the main reason I'm doing this right now.
I have taken in 3 stray people and two stray cats temporarily. They need a permanent place, and soon, because in spite of every effort, my cat allergies are going crazy.
So this is your chance to help some really great people get back on their feet, and hear a whole lot of great music. If I meet my goal, you get the music and they get their place. But please, be generous, because if we go past the goal, other great things happen.
