if anyone remembers the story that was making rounds a while back about a 19 year old discovering the solution to cleaning up the pacific garbage patch, that project launched a fundraider which now has 7 days to reach it’s goal.

They’re waterballoons that SELF TIE, make a HUNDRED at a time, AND AND they’re biodegradablee!! Seriously why isn’t this all over my dash yet??
They’ve already reached WAY over their goal, but you can still get some early bird deliveries for an early start of the water balloon madness!
They were on the Today show!
A Kickstarter project is in effect for “swivelCard,” a paper business card that can be folded into a USB drive, which can hold resume, picture, and presentation files. It can also be updated from an online account, even after it’s given away.
2014 marks the sixtieth anniversary of Godzilla, the world’s most famous movie monster. Around the globe, people are celebrating this momentous occasion in many different ways, but no one honors Godzilla better than his homeland of Japan. The Big Godzilla Special Effects Exhibition will display original props, suits, production art and memorabilia in one centralized location - and it’s only on display in Tokyo for two weeks.
Exhibits like these are rarely seen by westerners and only a small fraction of the English speaking world has ventured to the land of the rising sun to view them. They return home with tales and photos of movie history and have had them published in fan magazines and on websites for decades. But with recent advances in technology, we can now share these stories and images in beautiful high definition.
If successfully funded, I will travel to Japan to document the Big Godzilla Special Effects Exhibition and interview key members from Godzilla’s sixty-year history. The images and footage collected will be edited into a feature length documentary that will be available on YouTube titled Hail to the King: 60 Years of Destruction. If we meet some stretch goals, this documentary could eventually be available through Video On Demand services. We have an awesome group of artists and fans who are helping to create some of the incredible perks for the campaign.
Time is of the essence! Without a doubt, our biggest challenge is the ticking clock of funding this project, traveling to Tokyo and documenting this exhibit in a very short timeframe. If we meet our goal, we will only have four days in Japan to capture this monumental opportunity.
Additionally, time also comes into play once the team assembles back in America. With less than three months to create the documentary, Martin and Kyle have their work cut out for them but they are excited to have the opportunity to work together.
Of course other challenges exist - the team will need to keep backers updated and coordinate with the creative collaborators to make sure the backers get their perks on time for donating. But while the entire team is fully committed to making this project a reality, only your donation can get this documentary off the ground. Please help us celebrate Godzilla’s legacy by contributing to this independent documentary and thrilling kaiju fans around the world.
Godzilla: Heritage still needs your help! You can support the production’s Kickstarter here.

This is so sweet.
Humans of all ages: our new Kickstarter is well underway. Our goal: to riff the 1998 Godzilla, starring Matthew Broderick in another live nationwide simulcast.
This movie has a giant lizard of course, but this one has SHAPELY, SEXY LEGS. It has Matthew Broderick, who IN HIS VERY FIRST SCENE SINGS A SHOW TUNE. It’s chock full of wrecked buildings, exploding vehicles, truly terrible quips and an inordinate number of scenes involving fish.
It’s our standout, number one, most requested riff ever. And since it’s a Hollywood studio movie, it costs a small fortune for us to riff it. So we’re asking you good people to join in on the fun, kick in some dough and enjoy some very nice rewards.
Still remaining at the higher levels is one of my favorite rewards: I WILL COMPOSE AND PRODUCE YOU A SONG, on whatever subject you choose, in whatever style you choose. Please know that I don’t work blue and I suck at rap.
So thank you for contributing. Thank you for considering. And just plain thank you for being such wonderful fans.
