So it’s been a good 24 hours. The 919Noise gig last night went pretty well. It was the most pleased I’ve been with a Small Life Form appearance in a couple of years & Peter Aldrich had a triumphant return to guitar playing. Here’s the video shot on my phone (possible better videos in the future – this one includes the ten-minute set-up/tear-down time between sets & a guest appearance from Ted Johnson as “the pedal inspector”):
I launched the Kickstarter about my mini-comic residency in Pittsburgh. I’ve been pretty good about setting goals I think I can meet & I’m getting way better at setting prices & workloads that are fair to me. & I got half of my funding in the first couple of hours! So yeah, my fears of Kickstarter being dead are gone for now. However Kickstarter has placed a limit where you can only have one active campaign at a time. So the Remora t-shirt campaign will launch in about a month & then we’ll see what happens after that as in my brain there are three more projects planned depending on my life schedule. Also I got asked to be interviewed by one of the staff members at Kickstarter, which will hopefully put a big boost on my current project.
I did a t-shirt design for Irata in support of their new EP (available from Silber soon) yesterday. I think it looks pretty sweet.After 4 hours of sleep I had a full day of landscaping work & earned a decent day’s wage for the first time in what seems like an eternity. To top it off when I took a shower afterwards I found $20 in the pocket of the pants I put on. So pretty much the best day ever.
