I love the night life. Well. Sort of. I can't hang like I used to. Back in the day I loved nothing more than going out and dancing my life away with friends and an assortment of interesting people. Now my going out is once in a blue moon. Dancing all night takes a toll. My hips creak and moan like an old house in one of those scary movies from the 70's. I still love to rattle that old house though.
So does my brother Marcus. One of the places he goes to on a weekly basis is a legendary nightclub called Numbers. The place has been around for almost 40 years and every Friday night they play the best music from the 80's. This place has been special to my brother since he was a teen and two years ago he began working on a documentary chronicling the rich and unique history of this place. The interviews he worked on involved the various owners and employees as well as the patrons who have experienced and loved Numbers.
Throughout this process he has worked tirelessly and for nothing to capture as much footage as possible. Along the way he joined cosmic forces with a production company called Dinolion (Jeromy Barber and James Templeton) and together they pulled in more interviews with those involved with the history of Numbers as well as some amazing bands that have performed there.
On February 2nd Marcus and Dinolion launched their Kickstarter campaign to help raise money to see this film through. There are production costs to any film. Some of the costs include rights to music that they want in the film as well as travel expenses to interview other bands who are not in the immediate area and are no longer touring. For example he has already interviewed Andy Bell and Vince Clarke from Erasure. Erasure! Not to sound like a total fangirl, but Erasure was one of those bands I grew up with and to see the footage of my brother talking to this band... it is awe inspiring.

So stick around! I've got some really fun stuff lined up for this month. There's a certain love story baking with everyone's favorite Strawberry Shortcake female villain and a mystery man. Not to mention, the drama really heats up when a few heartbreaking things happen on Friday the 13th! Take care everyone.
