In honor of the “shmoo reveal” in this week’s strips, here’s a loop I created from the infamous “Gimme Pizza Slow” viral meme worm that is plaguing our nation.To me this sounds like the hook to some Easter egg track from off of Odelay!
This Kickstarter thing is starting to feel like a job! Why should I have to work to keep the cash streaming in? Haven’t I already given enough over the years? Nobody told me a job in cartooning would require me to get out of bed before 11AM! I want to talk to the man in charge!
The KS continues to both rock and roll, And although it has not reached dubstep proportions, I feel that it is only a matter of time. I am past $20K, so a NEW short story will now be added to the book! And if things keep trending upwards a hardcover edition is not out of the question! Oh my gosh… I-I feel dubstepping coming on!!
I am creating one of those famous “Ask Me Anything” threads on Reddit, and the Overlords need proof that I am who I sez I am! This blog entry should suffice… until the Republicans start demanding photo ID.
Once this thing goes live I will post the link. Of course, you people could always have Asked Me Anything. I’m… a little depressed that you haven’t, actually.
(Oh! It’s up now! That was fast!) Whoops! I didn’t realize I actually had to hang around to answer the questions! My bad! I will schedule this for later this week and let you all know about it.
UPDATE: Okay! This exciting ego-fest will now be held in Reddit’s IAmA thread on Sunday 11/10 at 5PM EST. I’ll post the direct link again when it is live!
(BTW, could someone e-mail me and tell me what “OMG” means? I hear all the kids saying it and I just want to be hip).
The Kickstarter is still chugging along at a brisk pace! I have already raised nearly $10,000 of my $12,5000 goal! If the winds blow right, I could even make my goal this week!
But if not, the sailing might get rougher. Most Kickstarters are hot right out of the gate and then lose steam after the initial funder enthusiasm wears off. There often is a second wind at the end, but of course, nothing in this effort is guranteed.
There is also the fact that my TRUE goal is $17,000. At that level I will be able to collect the entire Weapon Brown works into a single omnibus instead of splitting it into two volumes. That’s twice the book for my pledgers, and half the work for me, as I won’t have to run a second Kickstarter!
So, if you haven’t helped spread the word to everyone you know through your church bulletin, your phone tree or your knitting circle, what are you waiting for?
Dolores Crusteford of Minneapolis, New Mexico has even started an “electronic” newsletter wherein she mentions my Kickstarter campaign, as well as seven new ways to preserve quince in humid climates! Why not check it out?
|“‘Weapon Brown’? Oh no, Mavis. I stopped reading that. Not enough fucking.”|
At last! At last, after spending all day shoving my Kickstarter campaign in front of anybody on the Interweb with a gravatar to their name, I am finally able to pimp my work here, where my work is!
So here it is, my Kickstarter page to fund the printing of the Weapon Brown graphic novel! I have a host of awesome incentives for the peeps (not the least of which is the book itself, complete with bells and exactly 2.8 whistles), but I will be working all this month to make my mission a success. This is four years of effort all boiled down to one 30-day window. I am become madness itself!!
This week, owing to my last minutes preparations, I did not have time to create a Coffee Break cartoon. I should be on track for next week, but for now, I am happy to premier the cornerstone of my entire campaign: My Kickstarter video! I hope you enjoy it!
