I’ve ranted endlessly about my my crowd-sourcing fatigue. I can’t figure out how to turn the volume of pitches down to a manageable level so filtering them ends up being all-or-nothing. I just don’t have the time or energy to read them all. Still, every now and again a project commands my attention. Sometimes, I’m compelled to push the project under your nose.
This is one of those times.
Unfortunately, the tragedy in Boston yesterday made me forget that I was going to post about Gregg Deal’s project. I’m sliding in under the wire today since his funding deadline is tonight. Sometimes getting the word out and spreading ideas is as important as raising funds. Maybe. I hope. Yes, let’s believe that.
Gregg never spammed me, pitched me, or otherwise annoyed me with this project. It caught my eye when he mentioned it on twitter and I bookmarked it. In the interest of full-disclosure, I did kick in a small amount towards the project. You can take that as a conflict of interest. You can take that as me putting my money where my blog is. You can leave now and bide your time until later in the week when I post about the epic Saturday night SyFy Craptacular Monsterwolf.
Oh hey, quite by coincidence, here’s the description of Monsterwolf:
A group of people who represent an oil company find new ground to drill for oil but then accidentally unleash a wolf-like creature. The creature wrecks havoc in the town and can only be stopped by the last surviving native American.
So, um, clearly this was all meant to be.
It’s a sign, damnit. A sign from above that I was meant to tell you about this project and how you can support it.
I probably should have mentioned sooner that I’m (mal)functioning on very little sleep and no adult supervision so please don’t mistake my Crazy for any reflection on Gregg’s art.
Unless that positively influences you to donate…
So, with all that blahblahblah pre-amble, let me introduce you to DC-area artist Gregg Deal, aka @the_lame_sauce. Here’s his blog, which explains the project. Here’s his Indiegogo page, where he’s raising funds to make this project a reality.
Good luck, Gregg!
