Our friend Mike Schmidt from The 40-Year-Old Boy is planning an east coast tour of his compelling/terrifying/hilarious one man show. He's trying to raise six grand to cover the touring costs, and using Kickstarter to do it. If you're a fan of Mike's, get behind it!
Hey, Friends of Tom, listen up! Tom Scharpling (former writer for Monk and host of The Best Show on WFMU) is working with a team of terrific journalists (including Bethlehem Shoals [founder of FreeDarko] and Lang Whitaker [editor at SLAM magazine]) to create an "Awl-like" website about sports called "The Classical."
The project promises to be smart, funny, creative, passionate and refreshingly independent. But like any independent creative start-up, they need help to get up and running. Please hit their Kickstarter page and help influence the future direction of sports coverage on the web!
Our long-time video pal Ben Harrison has been cooking up cocktail bitters for years, refining an amazing recipe. Now he's kicking things up a notch with a Kickstarter project to make a Giant Vat's worth. A twenty dollar pledge gets you a bottle of Hella Bitter Citrus Cocktail Bitters, featuring Ben offering his best thizz face on the label. Well worth your money, says I.
