My friend Russ forwarded an e-mail he received today from the band Wilco. They're offering a free song download in exchange for a simple promise -- that you will vote on Nov. 4. They don't say who you should vote for, but I have my suspicions about who the guys in the band support.
Here's the skinny:
Such tumultuous times. And in the spirit of giveaways that seem to be sweeping the nation, we've got something free for you. No it's not a pile of cash (sorry) but rather an audio postcard of sorts from a summer's night in Oregon with our friends the Fleet Foxes & a lovely Bob Dylan tune. All we ask is you go to http://wilcoworld.net/vote/ and click the "I pledge to vote in the 2008 Election" button. If you can spare it, we also encourage you to consider a donation to Feeding America http://www.feedingamerica.org/ .
Happy listening (and please feel free to pass this offer along to friends, family members, etc.).
