My Friend's Kickstarter Campaign

These days lots of folks are funding various projects through Kickstarter. It seems there are many films and CDs that owe their existence to contributions from fans and potential fans. What I like about that is that it fosters a sense of community, that people who might otherwise be completely uninvolved in film projects can feel (and rightly so) that they've made a contribution.

I myself haven't yet tried this method of raising funds, though it is quite tempting, particularly with regards to Grandmother Winsome's Variety Minute. My friend Ryan has a campaign going right now, to raise $5,000 for Walk-Ons, a short student film set in the world of paintball.

Click here to check out his Kickstarter page. I've never done paintball, but Jason and I feel that Grandmother Winsome would be quite good at it, for she knows the advantages of using others as shields. Perhaps Ryan and Andrew will ask her to take part in the fun.

Don't Ship Anything Through Greyhound

Greyhound managed to lose my friend's luggage several months ago, and the company still hasn't properly reimbursed her. In fact, Greyhound hasn't even responded to her emails. The following is a photo I took a couple of weeks ago at the North Hollywood station (where her packages were supposed to end up), which shows just how easy it would be for something to be stolen from Greyhound. These packages are only an inch or two from the open door.
