Kickstarter Goodness

So, I've recently come across a few Kickstarter projects that I've backed. Perhaps they'll interest you as well. I'm only going to mention the live ones I've backed, of which there are 4. The first one is for Magnetips. They're refillable, magnetic color pens. If you like to sketch, draw, or are into costume design, I think these would be a great addition to your art kit. They'd also be fantastic for the adult coloring book craze. (5 Days to Go)

The next one is Littlest Lovecraft. I have backed these folks in all of their Kickstarters. They produce gorgeous quality illustrated Lovecraftian tales. You have the option with this project to get back-editions of their books as well. I've enjoyed all of the books I've gotten from them. (36 Days to Go)

The third is Joking Hazard, a Cards Against Humanity style card game based on the Cyanide and Happiness web comic. If you like any of those words I just said, you will probably like this project. (4 Days to Go)

And last, is a project to create an audiobook of Harlan Ellison's original script for "The City on the Edge of Forever", often considered the best episode of all the classic Star Trek episodes. I'm a huge fan of Ellison - he is one of my top 3 authors. If you have any interest in him or Star Trek, please consider backing this project. (13 Days to Go).

All of these projects are fully funded already (or nearly so), so if you back them you will get the goodies they are offering.

This Week Online - April 14, 2014

Hola all - please enjoy some amusements I found online in the past week!

Lastly, you know I'm a big fan of Tabletop, the Geek & Sundry web show hosted by Wil Wheaton on YouTube. They've decided to crowdsource the third season of the show over on Indiegogo. Check out the campaign and give if you can. If he can reach $1m, we will get a third season of Tabletop with 20 episodes AND a new spin-off show all about roleplaying games. THAT is something I really want to see!

Enjoy your week!
