  2. Please give this man 5 grand for his innovative idea of “watch me play video games”. He plans to get rich off of YouTube ads and just needs a little boost from you. 

    Well I have 4 children to support

    Will branch off to making Crazy Rants (Hopefully comical)

    I am living off my income taxes right now. And my funds are running low. So with a part time job and the money I will be able to pay rent for a year. That way I will have time for the Youtube videos. Other wise I will have to get a full time job and only have time for maybe one video a month. I just started the Youtube channel and I know it will take about year to get any kind of audience and that is only if I can make weekly videos and have set schedule that my viewers can really on. So to put it in simple terms, I will use the money to live off of so that I may have time to create these Youtube videos

    A number of people have asked what the licencing/copyright issues will be so I will answer it here. 

    Nintendo still own every copyright to the pokémon franchise so as a result, they have every right to take down the project. 

    Everything except the locations, names and some minor aspects will be custom made by myself and my team, meaning that any references to copyrighted images/music etc will be invalid as it is our own creation.

    So he’s outright stating that the project can and probably will be shut down for trademark infringement yet he still expects people to give him $1,500 on the off chance that Nintendo won’t notice an unlicensed Pokemon game in the iOS app store. Good shit

    Those are Pounds, not dollars.

    In US dollars, 1,500 pounds is $2486.70

    they need $2500 for a copyright breaching iOS app.

    Good catch

  7. leeannelfilm asked: Could you explain to me why 50 States in 50 Days sucks? I think it is really awful that you take real projects, peoples dreams, and bash them. These are young filmmakers and you are beginning their careers with bad press. This is not humor - it is scum. I truly hope that the press you gave them gets them more views and donations.

     
  8. it’s a “food printer” so you put paste or dough or sauce into it, and it squeezes it out into shapes. perfect for those times that you don’t have the time to squeeze out those shapes by hand, but do have the time to download a pattern from the internet, download it to your food printer, and reload the food printer with new capsules of paste or dough or sauce every time you need to make a new shape

    kickstarter backers can pre-order one now for the low, low price of $999. get it before it goes to retail for $1300, or if you’re a real foodini enthusiast, you can get a limited edition model for $2000!

     
  9. Back again for a second round of failure is the Meme Trading Card Game. This time they cut the awkward video of their sweaty founder completely out of the project page. You can still see it here, however. 

    Memes are really kick ass. They are jokes for people with no imagination or sense of humor. And now they’re on some cards that you can take out of your desk and look at when your wifi is down because your parents unhooked the router and took it into their room and they won’t give it back unless you show them you have made some small effort to fill out applications.

    Best of luck, you sweaty goober.

  10. The “Cable Fondler” is a small piece of pre-cut wood that you stick to your desk with double-sided tape.

    Cool idea for keeping your cables in order I guess but you can just go to Officemax or some shit and plunk down 80 cents for 900 of these bad boys and call it a day:

  11. This guy got pissed off that his USB iphone dock lifted up every time he picked up his iphone so he invented this thing which is a bunch of wood blocks with space inside for a stack of CDs or DVDs to give the pyramid thing weight.

    I don’t know anyone other than my mom who has used a CD in like four years but good luck. Also this thing is ugly as shit.

  13. Kickstarter-Funded Game ‘Super Action Squad’ Put On Hold After Two Years

    Super Mario Crossover guy has officially “put on hold” the game he kickstarted for $53,000 after some scattershot video development logs showed he spent the last 18 months not really doing anything productive

    http://www.explodingrabbit.com/news/super-action-squad-is-being-put-on-hold

    The video development logs he did put out recently barely even showed a “game”. No character sprites, not even a complete movement engine. The sort of thing most indie developers could bang out in a day or two.

    He also passes the buck on to his team a little bit; even though he kickstarted the game for $53,000, he admits he paid his team little to nothing and then calls them out for not doing their jobs.

    Here’s a Kotaku writeup about the project

    In July of 2012, a man named Jay Pavlina raised $53,509 on Kickstarter for his game, Super Action Squad. Two years later, the game is “on hold”—and Pavlina is saying that his Kickstarter was “a bad idea in the first place.”

     

  14. in case you needed more evidence that funding a major studio’s kickstarter is every bit as potentially foolhardy as funding one for somebody you’ve never heard of. choice quote from the article:

    The studios can’t conceive of an “audience” that has an active role in, or any right to, the media they enjoy: not even when that “audience” is more properly viewed as the product’s investors. What’s more, they’re the angel investors who bought in when the product was highly speculative and assumed 100% of the risk; the studio is just the VC who came along to put in a round of safe money after the project had proven out. In any real business-setting, the angels would be suing the pants off of the VCs and winning.

  15. This whole thing started in 2013 when Meredith taped a note saying ”Do you want to go to all 50 states?” on Madeline’s bathroom mirror in their dorm room at Stephens College. When Madeline woke up she took one second to read the note, then she wrote one of her own and posted it on Meredith’s mirror, “yes.” And just like that this big, beautiful trip was planned and thoroughly thought out. That’s a perfect example of our friendship. We will support each other no matter what. Our trip will begin on May 16th and We will end on the 4th of July. 

    sounds like these ladies have a great friendship… but it is a friendship worth 15 thousand dollars??? stay tuned to find out
