Sept. 15th -- An update on the McDermott birthday project: I still do not have one piece of the puzzle needed for construction. As soon as I have this in hand, I will be able to complete it all and send it out. At this point I expect it to wrap up by the end of the month. Check back for any further news. And, if you're a part of this, thanks again -- it really is shaping up to be a memorable and meaningful gift.
Yes, it's that time again!
Michael McDermott's birthday is August 24th -- which means the 7th Annual McDermott Birthday Celebration is now underway! And, if you're a fan, friend or otherwise a supporter of Michael's work it's hoped you'll choose to get involved.
Here's what I need from you to make this celebration happen:
lyric from any Michael
(decorated any way you
2. A birthday card for Michael (and/or small gift, if you wish)
(the extras below are optional but
the above have been the only items requested in recent years,
(or two or three or more if you like) from a McDermott
Mail the above to:
(particularly useful for international participants)
E-mail your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org
***ALL SUBMISSIONS MUST BE RECEIVED BY AUGUST 24th!!!***
(Michael will be in Europe for his actual birthday [Aug. 24th]
As you may have gathered from the above list, this year's gift will be a multi-faceted creation incorporating aspects of prior years' efforts into something wholly new. In other words, like "Paint Michael A Song", for this project participants can use any McDermott song lyric from his entire catalog. And, like "The Pauper Road", it will involve "place" very prominently -- including Michael's travels "Around The World". Naturally, the projects specific to individual albums ("Ashes to Ashes", "The Broken Record") will be represented by virtue of lyrics sure to be chosen from each of these. And, while I have a few additional details yet to work out myself, I expect both "The Album Jacket" and "The Birthday Bridge" will be recalled herein as well.
If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me! email@example.com
Thank you in advance for making this 7th Edition Pauper Project/Surprise the best one yet!!!
