Welcome to Part Eleven of the book ‘The Suffering and Celebration of Life in America’.
This are pages 501 through 534 of our book, and our full length movie is coming next, and we offer it here for whatever you think it is worth. Hopefully, this gives your Monday a boost!
This is the final 34 pages of our book, and our movie too! This last section tells about our cross country train trip to Washington DC for election night 2008. We interview Ian MacKaye here in what is the longest interview of the book. Wow, talk about a journey, it sounds cliche, but this trip changed our lives, for the better. As hard as it was, as painful as it was, it was great. I hope you have enjoyed this work of art, and please, if you have not yet already thrown some money in the hat we pass, now is the time to do it. Thank You!
We offer the book and movie as an interactive PDF and a streaming video in a pay-what-you-can honor system model, or $25+shipping for the paperback, you can get it here: http://www.usaodd.com/?page_id=32.
The hosting, building and maintaining the website, the app that creates this flip book and paypal fees all cost money, not to mention the 5+ years we have invested in this project with our whole hearts and minds. This project was an enormous undertaking, and we did it with no support, no grants, no credit cards, which made it an extremely challenging task. We had none of the comforts of home for more than a year! We worked odd jobs, and slept sitting up in the front seat of our car quite often.
Why would we do this you ask? We wanted to do whatever we could to make a difference, to provoke thought, and to give people their say. We hope you enjoy reading our words and those of the people who gave us their time to help document true America.
Please support independent art and creative endeavors and throw us a token of your appreciation, think of it like tipping a waitress or a barista, and this is certainly more long lasting than an espresso!
Thank you for your support and your time. Please enjoy our artistic expression.
