What a summer! 
After playing at a festival nearly every weekend this summer,
I am finally returning toward a semblance of balance, rest, and centering.
Make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this blog post because there's some
HUGE NEWS at the end. ReallyReally exciting awesome news. 
Here's a photo gallery of my adventures at Burning Man. 

I flew in a little airplane over Black Rock City! And I played a ton of shows all over. It was so fun!

Here's a link to my two hour long set with Fractal Dragon at Sacred Spaces Village at Burning Man.
You can download it and it'll be just like you're at Burning Man minus all the dust, heat, and freaks..

The Cello Madness Congress on Sep 12 2012 was totally awesome and
there's some videos on the Cello Madness Congress Facebook page: 

It's video time!!
I rocked out at the Kinetic Carnival in Willits and had a breakdance crew called Floor Tactics bust some moves: http://youtu.be/TinCjLyQw20
Right before Burning Man I made a video to enter the BOSS World Looping Championship
and figured I'd make a couple videos of some of my songs. Check them out here:

Pretty soon I will be launching a fundraising campaign so that I can do a super awesome epic
three month long bicycle tour in Australia covering almost 2,000 miles.

I want to spread some California style positive vibes down under so please be on the lookout
for this email in the next few weeks. I am going to be doing a kickstarter campaign, an IndieGoGo campaign, or I'm going to use WePay.com to crowdfund this expedition.

If you know people in Australia, please introduce me.
I'll need all the help I can get to put together a sweet bicycle tour in the next month and a half.
It's all happening, but I'm going to need your help to really make it happen. If you can't wait for
the official crowdfunding appeal, you may PayPal $5, $20, $50, $100, or a gazillion dollars to my
PayPal email address which is "CelloJoe@CelloJoe.com" I sure would appreciate your help!
