Here we go fast and furious: the copy of Transformers: The Score signed by composer Steve Jablonsky has just been listed on eBay!
Bidding starts at $25. Along with the signed CD of the Transformers orchestral soundtrack, you get a Certificate of Authenticity (I spent hours last night trying to figure out the right way to make that out, then wound up going for a pretty-much straightforward affair) verifying that this thing is what it claims to be and why we're auctioning it. And just for fun, I'm gonna throw in a copy of the online petition - signed by Yours Truly - that may or may not have helped matters along but it sure seems to have raised a stink over the summer, didn't it? :-P
100% of the proceeds from this sale will be going to help fund some music education projects in the public schools here in Rockingham County, North Carolina. When I first pitched this idea to Steve Jablonsky, what I'd had in mind was to help fund this coming spring's Rockingham All-County Chorus, 'cuz at the time the word was that there wasn't going to be much funding for it. Happily, we don't have to worry about that anymore. But there are still all kinds of things related to music education here that the schools could use some help on: like purchasing new instruments, and possibly some assistance in funding next year's All-County Chorus. I did make sure to tell Steve about the changed situation and he gave us his blessing to use the money from this, however we can to help music education here. So that's what we're gonna do, however it is that we can :-)
I can't begin to say how thankful we are to Steve Jablonsky, that he's helping us out like this.
Okay well... what are you waiting for?!? Hit the link above and feel free to oggle the goods. And to bid on it if you feel so led :-)
