Yes please vote they are building a gap that is up to 24 votes now as I type this. Hit your local coffee shops tomorrow if you have to lol. If your local library is open go hit them as well. Its going to be really close.
Take care.

Ok last day. Trang just before midnight took the lead back. It is so close, as they say politics, too close to call. So, your last chance to vote. Make this one count, spread the word. Thanks for all the votes you guys have cast so far. Here's the direct link to vote:

This the last time I will ask, please vote, it is so close, in the end it only takes 1 vote to make a difference and that's how close this vote is going right now, it may come down to a single vote. So, please vote, and spread the word. Thanks again.
Take care.

Grabbed some phones from people at work today and voted on them and add 3 more votes from home just now.  I actual listen to the Dj's music to see what Trang was up against.  Cant imagine how this is so close...makes no sense to me.

Thank you, we have already counted your vote.

I'll try again from the office in 30 mins if the poll is still open.

Well its over, not sure what time it ended but we lost by 64 votes. I'm really frustrated by this whole experience, ending was not clearly defined, at midnight we had something like a 74 vote margin of victory. But they kept counting votes and I am not even sure what time it ended. Sort of like running a marathon, getting to the end and finding no finish line, yet no one knows where the finish line is, so you have to keep running but you've spent all your energy getting to what you thought was the end. Well thanks everyone for your votes, we wouldn't have gotten as far as we did without you. I will let you all if anything comes of this. Thanks again.
Take care.

I saw that, Loren. Kind of disappointing! I must've voted 25 times over the course of the week, but of course the "other side" was getting friends to vote for them too.

You've got to hate one of these online polls without rules or deadlines, as you say.

Here is what Trang says about the vote, thanks again to everyone who came out and supported her:

"WE LOST OUR FOOTBALL GAME!!!! lol. I had to quit right after midnight going against the 3 guys since they kept on going till 9 am this morning lol. We were leading at about 90 points right after midnight. I did not know the exact time the game ended and did not care so much since KCET said it ends Monday morning. I set my time to end at midnight because I rather sleep. I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart how much you guys love my work and supporting me and we had fun with it. I had so much fun staying in the game against them with my big troop behind me. The best part is having guys including friends and family with me. just love you guys!!!! hugs... The game is over now."
Take care.

It is disappointing for Trang especially when the work is so beautiful and meaningful.  Thanks for letting us know about her.  I will follow her work.

Any thoughts to doing a Kickstarter type campaign. 

Ive been involved in several specifically for Yoga teacher Elena Brower who raised $75,000 to make her book "The Art of Attention" http://www.artofattention.com.  Just a thought :)

It is disappointing. The good thing is that many people on this forum and others have discovered her work. I will continue to follow her now. Also, great job on the music, Loren.
Never regret money spent on old books, old dogs or old friends.

That was very nice to hear from Trang.  Her work is very special, so I'm sure we'll be hearing more from her in the future.  Thanks for letting us know about her work (and your accompanying music), Loren.

I couldn't resist firing off a quick email to KCET questioning the use of a "competition" between two dissimilar projects, the lack of controls or clear parameters for voting, and relying on the effective use of social media as an accurate proxy for viewer interest or as a measure of each project's worthiness.

Also Loren...its so easy to get wrapped up in this mini politics I failed to emphasize your special role in this wonderful project....your music was the emotion behind the story.
