Book to Theme Park : Candlelight

Book to Theme Park Candlelight : A Science Fiction love story

Josh Kostelecky is a man with a plan.

It’s a bit complicated, but I’ve taken the liberty of illustrating it.

First you write three books. Then you Build a theater. Then you build a movie studio. Then you build a theme park. Then you ride the roller coaster all day long, because you've earned it, man. You've earned it.

So how’d that turn out?



CANdleholder “A creative way to add light to your life.”

If I may get philosophical for a moment, I’ve always thought of cans as not specifically candle-holders, but just “Holders”. You know, in general. I mean : They’re cans, so you can put stuff in them.

Ooo! Sounds classy already! Let’s see how they turned out.

Hmm… Well, I guess they have sort of a … “industrial” aesthetic going on?

How’d they do?

Oh. Ouch.


Creepy Dolls, Stupid Cards

Once Upon a Time… The Creepy Doll Deck

Artistic playing card projects usually do quite well on Kickstarter. They’re almost a can’t-lose proposition!
So what went wrong here? Why did this project only get a sad 1% of the needed funds?

Each doll comes with it's own "Once Upon A Time" story on the back of the card.


I don’t want to state the obvious here, but just to spell it out : The whole point of playing cards is that they all have the same pattern on the back. These cards all have different patterns on the back! They’re the world’s most obvious marked cards!

Except … I can’t think of any games that these cards could possibly be useful for! 52 Pickup?


Dog poop book!

This man needs $5,000 to create a coffee table book about dogs pooping.

I’m not sure what else needs to be said about that.

Oh, so you’re not taking the photos yourself, you’re just going to “collect” them.

Ok, where are you collecting them from?

(I think he means the book.)

Of course! That’s why it’s “Crowdsourced”. I get it! You want us to take the photos that you are going to sell.

Ok, I guess I could donate a picture to your business venture. How do I do that?

You know what? I just remembered, I don’t have a dog.


Adult fetuses on Mars!

“FETUS:” The untold MARS story

This man wants $11,700 to write a book. Well, let’s take a look at some examples of his writing!

I’m glad society got that sorted!

I really hope he forgot a comma between “Government” and “Abortion”.

Well, anyone can make a few typos, right?  Let’s listen to what he had to say on the video!

“With the heavy gravity and extreme cold of Mars, humans just couldn’t sustain the conditions!”

Bah!  First, that is not how you use the word “sustain”. Second, Mars does not have heavy gravity.

“A beautiful young genetic scientist falls in love with a perfect adult well endowed male fetus.”

So, the scientist was young, but the fetus was an adult with a big dick?

Buddy, let me clue you in here. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS AN ADULT FETUS! When a fetus grows up, it ain’t a fetus anymore. It’s a person. That’s pretty much the whole point of fetuses. That’s what they’re for.
