Mega Upload Party Wake for Michael Paul Miller on May 8th. Time or times TBA.

ANY 61 artist who wishes to join in should give KosmikRay
a Wall post with your Band Name and Song Title. Note: This is an UPLOAD Party, so your song must NOT yet be in the 61 system!

60 artists so far and here's hope to a round 100 artists total.
