Sorry for the Radio Silence here folks. In addition to the pleasant madness of the end of the Kickstarter, I also had a bunch of other things fall on me at the same time.
They included (but are not limited to) sickness, a car crash (everyone is fine), flight delays, cancellations, Worldbuilders running its first-ever serious booth at Origins, (blog to follow), seduction, piracy, storm, shipwreck….
I’m not going to dwell on any of that now. Suffice to say that in the end, it took me sixteen days to make it to Severen….
No. Wait. What was I talking about again?
Oh. Yeah. Radio Silence.
Today, I mostly wanted to thank all of you that stomped out and made the Kickstarter such a huge success.
I appreciate it. The folks at Albino Dragon appreciate it. Worldbuilders appreciates it.
And though they’ll never know the particulars, all the families that Heifer International will help with the money appreciate it too.
And it goes without saying that the success of this project will lead to more cool stuff in the future. He said tantalizingly…
There were a few things that I offered up as stretch goals in the Kickstarter. One was a video of me singing “I Crush Everything.”
The other was a video of me reading The Princess Book to Oot.
That second one will take a while, but I launched the I Crush Everything video on facebook a couple days before the end of the Kickstarter.
For those of you who missed it. I offer up to you…. this. A thing that I did.
Honestly, I haven’t listened to it, because I prefer to live firm in the illusion that the voice I hear in the shower is the same voice everyone else hears when I sing.
If it doesn’t…. well…. I would like to state that for the record, Shane kept cracking me up through the first several takes by doodling things. So my voice was pretty tired by this final take.
And also, I was sick as a dog when we recorded this. I was drinking tea with lemon and doing drugs just so I could perform.
And by drugs, I mean just regular drugs. Ibuprofen and pseudoephedrine.
And by perform, I mean sing. Perverts.
Okay. Enough equivocating.
Here it is:
