BETA TESTING FOR ROOT FOR ROO IS NOW LIVE! WE ARE GOOD TO PURCHASE!
The price increased slightly to $1,000 even which is no biggie as I plan to cover any difference. However, I remember a few people posted saying they wanted to be a part but never donated. Now is your last chance Specifically BlackAmy i know you had said you wanted in.
Now, before I can actually purchase the tree we need to come up with a member/group name and an inscription.
Member/Group Name*: Inscription (200 char max):
*This is how the tree will be identified on your web page, tree tag and plaque.
Once we have these 2 minor details confirmed, I will purchase the tree!
Geez, way to make the rest of feel like jerks. "After I donate my kidney to a friend in need, I'll still make the effort to go Bonnaroo and see all my friends even though I'm not crazy about the lineup this year."
Bonnaroo 11-16 ~ Coachella 15, 17 ~ Newport Folk Festival 14-16 ~ Shaky Knees 14-16 ~ DesertTrip 16 ~ Moogfest/MOEMS 13-14 ~ Music Midtown 12-13 ~ CounterPoint 14 ~
I think "Inforoo" is great. The quote, though, should be more like:
Sponsored by a community of 18,000 people who have never, ever agreed on a single thing except that this tree and what it represents is important and special. It is a symbol that we are all human and therefore mortal, but more importantly, when push comes to shove, we are all humane and therefore capable of compassion and kindness.
I don't really think that's what it should say - just after the last few days of posts, wanted to say that.
“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” ? Plato
“We are the music-makers, And we are the dreamers of dreams, Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams. World-losers and world-forsakers, Upon whom the pale moon gleams; Yet we are the movers and shakers, Of the world forever, it seems.” ? Arthur O'Shaughnessy, Poems of Arthur O'Shaughnessy
“The only truth is music.” ? Jack Kerouac
“If I can't dance to it, it's not my revolution.” ? Emma Goldman

Without music to decorate it, time is just a bunch of boring production deadlines or dates by which bills must be paid. -Frank Zappa
