Look at all these projects I found in Kickstarter’s Journalism category!
See? Journalism is alive and well.
This is fantastic. Another reader has done a dramatic reading of one of my posts! (The previous one was here.)
And not just a reading, There’s sound effects and visual gags!
I love this. Big thanks to reader Number9Robotic! This made my day.
This man wants to make calendar of “cat erotica” and he didn’t once use the pun “Kitty Porn”. According to his facebook, he’s doing this because a gypsy fortune teller told him to. I guess they have gypsies in Montana?
A copy of this sexy calendar will set you back $25, but if that’s too rich for your blood, you can get your named tattooed on the photographer for only $10.
I’m not sure what that has to do with the project, or why you would want that, but hey, ten dollars is a bargain!
Fun fact : , To get 10,000 names tattooed on your flesh between September 19th, and the end of December, you’d need to get 625 names per week.
He’s off to a great start!
I’d like to talk to you for a moment about Kickstarter “Title Images”.
The lead image of a Kickstarter project is probably the most important part of the entire pitch. It has to not only be eye-catching, but to communicate the general idea of your project. If your eye-catching image looks like it’s about quilting, you’re not going to catch the eyes of the right people to fund your new electronics project.
So be sure to put a lot of thought and effort into creating a good title image. (If you’re not going to just plagiarize it outright.)
Here are a few dos and don’ts :
And, finally, for God’s sake,
Is your cat or dog stressed out? Either by loud noises, or just by the crushing ennui of having the instincts of a predator in a comfy suburban home? No problem! Play that domesticated beast some soothing tunes!
Oh, good point. If my cat tuned the stereo to the Country station, I’d probably have him put down.
He’s going to need his own 4gb mp3 player!
For the, admittedly quite reasonable, price of $98, you can get fluffy his own mp3 player that he (or his owner) can load up with the mp3s that he likes. Hours of non-stop doggy music, without bothering his human owners!
Rock on, pooch! Rock on.
*Sigh*. Ever since Kickstarter stopped screening their projects this is just getting too easy. Kickstarter is now just as bad as IndieGoGo. There’s more dumb projects than real projects!
Really? Maybe this is a joke project, but I have a terrible feeling this person really hopes to get the money.
Either way, isn’t it great that it’s now allowed on Kickstarter?!?
They really need a comma between “on” and “candy”.
It was funny on Red Dwarf. It’s not funny when you do it.
This person clearly has no idea how game controllers even work, so how did he make the prototype that kickstarter absolutely requires for all electronic gadgets? Oh, that’s right. He didn’t. And Kickstarter doesn’t care anymore.
Is this racist? Not the glow-in-the-dark Tee-Pees, because that’s a real part of our nation’s glow-in-the-dark history. I mean calling them “injian tee-pees”.
Snap … Sporks?
Oh. Of course. Next time I’m at an event, and need to eat something with a fork or spoon, I’ll just take the flexible band off my wrist and stick it in my food!
Snap bracelets, popular in the early 90s, and coming back into fashion now, are metal springs that wrap around your wrist, but can also be straightened into a roughly straight shape. And then, here’s the magic part, you apply just a liiiitle bit of pressure to them, and they SNAP! back into a curved spring.
Perfect for something I’m jabbing into my salad.
Anyway, when the meal is over, I’ll just take that spork, dripping with spaghetti sauce or salad dressing or whatever, and wrap it around my wrist.
