Hello! I'm Hans Morgenstern. In 2009, I began indieethos.com as a blog about music and film. With almost 1,000 interviews, essays, criticism and reviews, it may soon completely disappear from the internet.
Though I am no longer writing on these subjects, I understand the impact they've had on the world. I still get comments and emails about the content. I would hate to lose it all from the internet, a space that could certainly benefit from thoughtful, intelligent writing on the arts. My thesis on "2001: A Space Odyssey" lives there. So does a career-spanning interview with pianist Mike Garson and his work with David Bowie. There are plenty of other special interviews from Victoria Legrand of Beach House to David Cronenberg.
Any funds collected will be used to pay Network Solutions for secure web hosting for the next two years. Any donation will matter, and bigger donations will be mailed gifts from my criticism/reporting years. Some things donors may receive include:
- promo items
- DVDs or Blu-rays
- Vinyl records
- Even my notebooks!
Finally, if someone just wants to pay the whole bill, you'll get this autographed CD by the rock legend Lou Reed:
The fundraiser will remain open, regardless of the CD sale, and all funds collected go to future renewals of the site. Here's the current bill:
