John's Stolen Computer

UPDATE: 
Thank you, everyone. I woke up to find more than $1,000 was raised in less than 24 hours by all my friends.. I'm at a loss for words, overcome with emotion while watching the support roll in, and reading everyone's messages. This is completely funding a new computer for me, which serves as both a studio and an instrument in my work. I can't thank you guys enough, I really feel cared for. However I can be there for you, let me know.


My Macbook computer was stolen off of my couch during the early morning hours of 8/17, very likely from a suspicious character that a roommate had just conducted a business transaction with.  I'm still hoping it turns up somehow, but in the meantime.. I have to figure something out as I go on tour in three weeks. Lots to be recovered or recreated. All of my music, studio and label projects, and 6 years worth of photos were on this computer. I had just transferred over everything from my old laptop and didn't back anything up. Won't make that mistake again. 

I want you all to know that any amount of support means the world to me, I can already feel the love. I was out alone celebrating the release of a new record I had just dropped when this happened. I left the laptop on my couch moments after publishing the record. It's wildly unfortunate and weird, I feel weird doing this.. but I still have hope. Thanks for your support.
