"By then running had entered the realm of the metaphysical. First there came the action of running, and accompanying it there was this entity known as me. I run; therefore I am"
Haruki Murakami, What I Talk About When I Talk About Running (via serve-andvolley)
"Every run is a work of art, a drawing on each day’s canvas. Some runs are shouts and some runs are whispers. Some runs are eulogies and others celebrations. When you’re angry, a run can be a sharp slap in the face. When happy, a run is your song. And when your running progresses enough to become the chrysalis through which your life is viewed, motivation is almost beside the point. Rather, it’s running that motivates you for everything else the day holds."
Dagny Scott Barrios (via runnerknittergeek)
HERE WE GO!! http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/jimbutler
I am teaming up with with PledgeMusic (like a Kickstarter just for musicians), and all of YOU to help me release my next CD ‘Deep Energy 5 - Music for Sleep Meditation, Relaxation and Yoga.
When you pledge I can have the CD mastered bywww.facebook.com/Dauntless.Mastering in Keene and a really nice gatefold CD package made with professional artwork etc. Something to be proud of.
With any extra money left over I will will be able to pick up a nice PA and laptop and take myself out and play live. The music that I create, would be perfect to be played in Hospitals, Hospice, Churches etc.. Playing live for me, would be the perfect avenue to give back to my community and the power of music to people who need it. With a good mobile rig, I will be able to do that.
The podcast has always has and always will be free. It’s music that people use to help them meditate and sleep and relax, and I couldn’t be more proud of that. And when you Pre-Order of the CD, you will be directly helping the podcast. Besides the live equipment, I’ll be updating my studio, so I can keep the podcasts free for a long time.
Besides Pre-ordering the new CD at the PledgeMusic site, you can pledge for, from T-shirts and USB sticks filled with my music, including unreleased music to custom made royalty free music, that only you will have to my favorite, if you are in the Keene, NH area, I will deliver the CD personally and treat you to coffee and snacks!! And you can listen to me use my regional accent on words that should have r’s but don’t.
And about the CD. It will be one track 60 minutes long and right now i’m picking between 3 or 4 different tracks to use. The actual face of the CD will be blank. Each CD will be signed, titled and numbered by me. So it will be a true collectors item. No two CD’s purchased through PledgeMusic will be the same.
Needless to say if you have ever thought of supporting me and my music, or if my music has helped you in some small way, THEN PLEASE PLEDGE AT THE LINK BELOW!!
And if you aren’t in the position to help financially, not a problem. If you could share this with someone who enjoys Ambient/New Age Music I would sincerely appreciate it.
Thanks, very, very much
PS: When I make my goal, 5% of any money raised over that goal will go tohttps://www.facebook.com/MonadnockCenterForViolencePrevention.
