In ricordo del compianto Hardy Fox, scomparso lo scorso ottobre, si stanno preparando diversi omaggi all'interno - ma anche all'esterno - della criptica cerchia artistica dei Residents, di cui egli era una delle principali menti. Uno di questi prevede la compilazione di un album e la contestuale creazione di un sito web atto ad ospitarne i brani, associati a diversi materiali audiovisivi e testuali.

Così scrive del progetto il suo ideatore, Meisekimiu, aprendo a contributi di lettori e di appassionati: "This project is a way to celebrate Hardy Fox and express our gratitude for him and his art. The way I initially conceived this project (and how I still want the final product to be like) is that the entire album is a "web experience". When you stream it online on the site I'll be hosting it on, each track will be paired with text and/or visual art by the original track artist with their thank-yous to the late Hardy Fox. In a way the album itself will be a big thank you card to Hardy Fox, but each track will come with what is more literally a thank-you card. Of course, Hardy is not with us anymore so he cannot personally read them without spiritual intervention, but I still believe that there's something a bit romantic about creating a tribute like this, regardless if he can see it from the afterlife or we're making our expressions of gratitude into the void."
