  2. god damn, finally someone has delivered the goods: crowdfunded pie fetish erotica!!

    pornography is one of kickstarter’s expressly prohibited items, but from a quick glance at the company’s website, it doesn’t look like their actors ever actually get naked. will the project be allowed to continue, or will it be pulled?? i’ll be keeping a close eye… or should i say a close “pie”… on this one

  3. this might also be a good time to remind everyone that while potato salad is now over $45k, our buddies were unable to raise so much as a few hundred on indiegogo to pour dom p into some diapers and then drink the champagne out of those diapers. shameful

     

  4. this article is featured on the kickstarter front page right now for some reason. some nerd wrote a 3500+ word article, and that is at least 3000 words more than i ever plan on reading about kickstarter wallets for the rest of my lifetime

     
  5. I am a mother of an 11 year old.  Going shopping with her in the mall has been horrifying since she turned 9 and wanted to wear “teen” clothing.  Shorts that showed off her butt, shirts that were so short they showed off both her chest and belly button.  She would need to buy a shirt two sizes too big to get the length that was appropriate, then the collar was huge.  I couldn’t take it anymore!  I created a clothing line that is modern in style but more modest.  The tops are all soft cotton and longer in length.  There is a length option not just a size option.  You can get a small-regular, long or extra long.  The shorts have the same options along with a zip on/off option for growth.  Kids love the colors and stylish designs where moms love keeping their girls modest.  It is a win-win! 

    Risks and challenges

    the challenge is to stay trendy while maintaining the modest look.

    this description, plus the above incredibly blurry photo of a chuck taylor sneaker and a ballet shoe, is all we have to go on that these shirts are worth $25. godspeed, lady

  6. hcandersen said: Kickstarter also has a monetary interest in letting as many projects as possible through, because they take 5% of all the money that comes in through successful projects with none of the responsibility for the fulfillment of those projects. That's a lot of money considering their operating expenses are, let's be honest, pretty negligible.

    exactly

     

  7. Anonymous said: Do you ever think Kickstarter will get quality control?

    No. Kickstarter is kind of like reddit in its belief that allowing literally everything in, as long as it does not infringe copyright or break the law, will naturally lead to the best content floating to the top. This obviously is not the case (see potato salad and the hundreds of wallets over the years for proof), but because Kickstarter is not legally on the hook for any promised rewards, it doesn’t matter to them.

    A more elitist version of Kickstarter that strictly curated great (or at least great-sounding) projects and actually penalized those projects that don’t follow up might be able to develop more cachet and perhaps take a larger cut off the top of each project’s funding. It might also be more sustainable. But it wouldn’t be nearly as profitable.

     

  8. Anonymous said: Do you think with the success of that stupid potato salad kickstarter, there will be a surge of copy cat bullshit kickstarters cropping up soon?

    Hmm.. I don’t think so. I really dont see that happening. But you never knowI suppose anything is possible.

  10. Not two weeks ago I was screaming to my wife about how I had wished there were a nostalgic way to bottle, mix and consume my shakes, liquids, spices and more. Lo and behold I open my inbox to this bad boy, The Protein Mason.

    Now, I know what you’re thinking; “Hey, YKS, so some guy put a spout thing on a mason jar from World Market and called it a day. Why should I give a hot wet shit?”

    Well, I’ll tell you why, you rude iittle pig. This is a nostalgic way to bottle, mix and consume your shakes, liquids, spices and more. 

    Now I know what you’re thinking AGAIN. “That sounds really stupid. I still don’t care.” You’re wrong, asshole. These guys have a prototype. They’ve done testing. It’s a mason jar. It’s a nostalgic way to bottle, mix and consume your shakes, liquids, spices and more! Why are you being such a dick about this?

    "I’m just saying. It seems unnecessary..It seems like these guys are just trying to cash in on the recent surge in cloying pseudo-nostalgic sentimentality and neo-homesteading/DIY thats so hot right now

    Buddy, I have no idea what you’re talking about. Check out these mugs from 7eleven. They kick ass.

  12. This guy is trying to do an unofficial remake of Chrono Trigger in RPG Maker. It looks worse than the original game

    I wanted the chance to try to please fans with this remake for newcomers and for Chrono trigger players already. So in this remake I wanted to work on more of the story and have some magna Artist look at the characters and story.

    Are you daft mate. Did you hit your head

  13. The Wu-Tang clan announced that they will be manufacturing a single copy of their super secret not-so-secret LP “The Wu - Once Upon A Time In Shaolin” and then auctioning the album to the highest bidder. 

    So, some dude wants to buy the only copy and destroy it because Wu-Tang “has devolved” into “self righteous assholes”. They are too rich or disillusioned or something and this is his way of making a statement blah blah blah.

    Regarding the album auction, the Kickstarter creator, Chris Everhart says: 

    This would be a tremendous idea if all the proceeds went to poor artists or cancer research or Autism or something.  Instead it goes to the pockets of artists who have the entire world at their ear.

    The irony of calling WuTang assholes for not being charitable but simultaneously being okay with giving them 6 million dollars, instead of “cancer research or autism or something” is palpable.

    Destroy only copy of new Wu-Tang album

     
  14. If you watch the video (please don’t, it’s really really unfunny) the entire reason he’s kickstarting his webseries is “I already have the equipment, but my wife said I can’t spend any more money.”

     
  15. This guy’s name is The Extreme Modder. One would think if they were truly an extreme modder they would know how to jailbreak a ps3 and wouldn’t need to purchase one from some guy on craigslist or whatever.

    Godspeed, kid.
