And, as you may or may not know, we just announced a really cool partnership with Sony. They are going to power the technology that enables our creative process, help us get equipment for our upcoming Mini-Tour, distribute some of our videos across the Internet, and they’re going to help us pay our contributing artists way more than we’ve ever been able to before!
