Lost & Found playlist for 6/11/09

My hearty thanks to Geoff Edgers for coming on to talk about his movie Do It Again: One Man's Quest to Reunite the Kinks. Would you like to help him finish his movie? You can find out much, much more at Kickstarter.com. If you'd like to email Geoff, his email address is: gedgers@mac.com. So far he has:
58 Backers
$5,071 pledged of $5,500 goal
59 days to go
From his Kickstarter page:

Last May, I created my mission: To reunite the brilliant but (in my opinion) under-appreciated band, the Kinks. I decided to make a documentary about the quest, wherever it took me. And it took me... To New York, to Los Angeles and to London. Along the way, I scored choice encounters with fellow Kinks fans named Paul McCartney, Sting, Zooey Deschanel, Paul Weller, Brian Wilson, Robyn Hitchcock and Clive Davis. I also headed to London to search out the original four: Ray Davies, Dave Davies, Pete Quaife and Mick Avory.

So where do you come in?

We need to raise just $5,500 largely to finish the editing. (That’s after already raising about $65,000 to make the film – and what we put in from our own pockets.) The good news is that we've already filmed everything we need and I'm confident, from looking over our rough cut, that we're on the way to creating an innovative, inspiring, exciting film. Did I succeed at my mission? You'll have to wait and see.
