With the recent announcement that Mike Dirn'ts wife Brittney, has been diagnosed with breast cancer, I thought it would be nice for the community to get behind Brittney and Mike to show out support. 

 

I was thinking that we could get a video together similar to the ones the community has done in the past for their birthdays. Showing our prays and wishes for them and her massive battle. I am sure both Brittney and Mike would really appreciate the support, since over the years they have shown us a great deal of their lives. 

 

Any thoughts on this? I posted this in the Important message thread and a few people thought it was a good idea.

I support your idea, it would certainly make them happy so that they know that their fans are always with them

I don't tend to participate in these (although I think it's a great idea), but whatever you do don't set the video to Wake Me Up When September Ends.  Yes, it's appropriately related, but it's also about death and I would recommend a song like Poprocks and Coke or something more similar to that.

You're right, it's a really sad song and we have to send positive thoughts !! :)

I'm really happy to participate, in any way whatsoever !

That would be just great! We'd have loads of GDC members make a short video of them sending a message to Mike and Brittney, and then mix it all together and send it! And i agree on the positive songs idea, its much better that way. I'm all in!

Except the fact that I can't stand that song, it seems to be a good choice thanks to the lyrics... A good choice with Poprocks and coke...

Yeah if you do this, make it as upbeat and positive as possible! That's how mike and Britt are (publicly at least) handling it. If you're gonna use a green day song how about something like hearts collide (lyrics aren't that much of a match but it's upbeat and happy) or she's a rebel or something like that.

I think Carpe Diem is a terrible choice. Lyrics that ask "Are we all too young to die?" .... That's a pretty awkward and morbid question to ask someone who is facing cancer.  Yes it's a pump up song, but it's a sensitivity thing.

Poprocks and Coke is a great choice in song. Its all about being there for someone, so its a prefect fit. This will mean we have roughly 2:40 of music time. The time that each person has will depend on how many people put there hands up. Of course we can go a little over that 2:40 but if we go too far over we may need to find another song, but I think we will be just fine with Poprocks and Coke. 

 

I was thinking for the video we could do the same a the birthday videos but this time with support for Brittney. If someone has any ideas fell free to post them. 

If anyone is good with a video editing program and would be will to edit the video it would be great if not, I can do it. Just hoping to make the video the best quality we can.

Sorry if it takes me awhile to reply, uni commitments are pretty big at the moment also my time zone means I am normally online when most here are asleep.
