And now for a cannabis culture break:
Stone's Throw — the label of "America's Most Blunted", Madlib — is funding a documentary through Kickstarter. Per a release: "Drawing on live concert footage, never-before-seen archival material, inner-circle home video and photographs and in-depth interviews with the folks who put Stones Throw on the map, director/producer Jeff Broadway's feature-length documentary, OUR VINYL WEIGHS A TON, will follow the label's enigmatic founder, Peanut Butter Wolf, as well as explore its left-of-center artists, history, culture and global following."
"The production of a Stones Throw documentary began in late 2010, when French company MediaTV sent Paris-based filmmakers Sébastien Bauer and Lucas Blaya to Los Angeles to begin filming events for the label's 15th anniversary. Over several months, the two amassed over 100 hours of footage before Broadway joined the production.
"The documentary is still in production, and requires further funding for its completion. Broadway has launched a Kickstarter campaign with the goal of raising $35,000 for additional production trips, shoots and the edit of the film. The duration of the campaign is 45 days, and will conclude at the end of November."
