Donate to "I Am I" on Kickstarter and finally be truly happy.

Have you been looking for meaning in your sad life? Well here it is. Give your money to cool stuff. Seems to work for evil gajillionares.
If you've never heard of crowd funding it is just what it sounds like. Instead of trying to squeeze large amounts out of large investors you beg small amounts from small investors. Making a movie is really expensive. REALLY.
So here is the lovely and wonderful Jocelyn Towne telling you all about it.


Check out the cool stuff you can get when you donate like walk on's and party invites and Simon Helberg doing your outgoing message. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2115598587/i-am-i-feature-film
You can then go over to the film website and check out the cool film maker interviews. http://iamithefilm.com/

I have read the script and it's truly wonderful. Every little bit helps. Lets help make a movie!

I Hate It!

I've been hating some stuff lately. Ideas, outfits, smells etc. Saying "I hate it" reminded me of this iPhone app I did some voice work on. The iHateIt app from Yay Robot . Check it out in the app store.

Carl Sagan Day

Well you missed it.. Only one day out of the year to celebrate the late great Carl Sagan: scientist, author and cutie. You can make it up to yourself though. Go watch Cosmos again. Have some stardust in your stardust. Check out these super Saganie things on Etsy.

Here's mine.
And this cool clock.
This very meta bookshelf.
Amazing amino acid bracelet.
And much more all found in this very cool treasury made by Blushie who makes lovely handmade soap like this.
I'm sure Carl would have loved to take a shower with this.

Devil Nut- Or how to Trapa bicornis Halloween style

In honor of all hallows eve here is the Trapa bicornis, bat nut, devil pod etc...
You can mostly find them in Asian markets. They taste a bit like chestnuts and should be cooked the same way, by a Dickensian urchin with a runny nose and light fingers.
They grow like this.
Looks pretty vulgar doesn't it? They're invasive and weedy in the American South and Australia so don't Jonny Appleseed them. But feel free to roast and munch them if you want to get at the Devil's nuts. Or hang them around your neck like the Afar men used to do to their enemies. Yes. Nut necklaces.
