Obsession and Sock Puppets

You want to know what obsession is? Start a Kickstarter campaign.

I spend more time hitting refresh to see if there are more backers than I really should. I think it’s starting to trigger carpal tunnel.

I mean, it’s been a week and I should be a little calmer now. I’m not. I’m totally not. I really, really want this to succeed.

One of the reasons is that Golden Fleece Press donating 10% of the proceeds of Wee Tales to support First Book-Northern Virginia. (I’m the chair of that First Book Advisory Board.) That would be a tremendous bonus to us.

Kickstarter doesn’t allow charities or even mentions of charities in their entries, so it’s sort of a secret or a special surprise for people. I think it’s something that needs to be shouted about.

The fact that the sock puppet video is insanely cute is beside the fact.

And that there’s a new magazine coming out at the same time as I hear one has closed means I’m doubly happy to be a supporter and an editor on the project. (Yes, I put my money where my mouth is.)

Check it out here:

HalloWEEn Tales Vol. 1

Donate, spread the word, laugh at the puppets and show them to your kids. Just get the word out. Please.

AiW: The Entire Text of Alice in Wonderland as tattoos

Okay, cousins, here’s the thing, I would totally risk the allergy potential of tattoo ink for a project like this. (Lost At E Minor)

Alice isn’t the only work they’re doing, but it is the only one I’d willing donate a body part to be part of. (Well, depending on how the scratch test comes back. If my throat closed because of the ink, I consider that a bit of a … complication, shall we say?)

Wait? What’s this? They’re temporary? Way to leave that out reporters. Hit the Kickstarter

Happy dance. Time to volunteer as tribute.

Look at this wonderful layout and check out the Sherlock and other groups they’re working on.
