So my spreadsheet/database for song placements is almost done.  I hope to finish it off in a day or two.

There was a problem with the mailing list sign-up form throughout the Silber website.  I’ll be trying to track where it is in the site & fix it everywhere.  Big thanks to Bill Pernell on that.  I’m planning to soon add the standard thing where if someone signs up for the mailing list they get some free music.

I posted in a half dozen comic book forums about the Bottle Comic project on Kickstarter & it generated what looks to be ten clicks & one donation.  So that shows how effective forums can be these days.  In other Kickstarter news they asked me a couple weeks ago to do a little video about having run a successful campaign & I made one & sent that in with the hope it will help somehow with the new campaigns.  I’m debating doing the campaign to raise money to make it to Malta for their comic convention, but I feel that if I can’t raise $1000 for a really cool project (the bottles), then how can I raise $2500 for a selfish useless project like appearing at a convention in Malta?

I’m hoping to have three new musical things & a new QRD up for the monthly newsletter to go out next week.  We’ll see if it actually happens.

    also technically aren’t you not supposed to use it for trips and such and only projects? that didn’t stop Amanda Palmer but she may have some weight to throw (no pun intended).

    Also you may have to think about dipping in too much. That’s already 3 no? perhaps you should kickstart each individual bottle as opposed to a six pack.

    • The Bottle Comic Project is indeed the third project (though I’m not doing anything to promote the Puzzle Box one). But with only 86 backers of the first one & only 10 of those backers coming from Silber fandom (meaning they had emails already on Silber mailing list), I’m mainly shooting for the Kickstarter community rather than the Silber community.

      The Bottle Project is individual bottle backing at the $5 – $15 level. It’s not until $50 where you are backing six bottles.

      Kickstarter says it’s not for vacations, not excluding travel. There are a ton of people with projects like “let me take a bunch of photos at the Grand Canyon” or whatever where people just go on vacation & take a hundred photos & put them in a PDF. Hopefully the people doing that stuff aren’t just taking pictures with their phones of their friends, but I can’t say for certain as I think those projects are fairly bogus & have never backed one.

      We’ll see what happens. I think it would be a good idea to get a failure or two under my belt to go with the successes to make me a more rounded human being.
