In other news James has finished the first draft and I think it’s funny as f*ck - we are gonna do a read through on Christmas Eve and hopefully we’ll confirm my thoughts by laughing our asses off. We delivered the scene to NFM and will be looking to follow up with them in the early New Year - just got a little more strategising to do first. It’s with this strategising that you guys could really help. I think we, at FNA, need to take a leaf out of John and Tracy Morter’s book - their Facebook group was the starting point of the RATM for Christmas Number 1 thing... and we ALL know how that ended! I am totally in awe of that campaign - without getting into a right or wrong on the merits or lack of on either song - I think it is amazing that something that started as a FB group ended up striking a chord with so many people to such an extent that around 250,000 of them were prompted to buy a song first released in 1992!
Now if we could harness a fraction of that passion - Pissheads could be entirely privately funded and we would have NO paymasters or financiers to please... which would be fantastic news!!! Our budget is around £50,000 - so 50,000 people donating a pound would have us reaching that figure. That probably won’t happen, but if you could all do your part, recommend our FB page to friends, follow us on Twitter, donate a few quid or any combination of the above then that would be a great start!
In the meantime we at FNA would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2010.
