Fund Math the Band’s New Album, Stupid and Weird!
The raddest band in the entire universe, Math the Band, is asking their fans to donate some cash via Kickstarter to help fund their upcoming album, Stupid and Weird. The band is asking for $7000 to help pay for recording, mixing, mastering, music videos, and actually making the rewards for the Kickstarter project itself, which includes an early download to their upcoming album, an exclusive t-shirt, a Math the Band comic book, and for those (like myself) who are chiming in $60, a glow-in-the-dark vinyl.
Help fund this amazing band and watch them release an incredible album later this year. You won’t regret helping out!

Help the Small Press Actually Press: Yeti Comics Kickstarter

I rarely support Kickstarters for comics, but these guys definitely could use a helping hand. I know Yeti Press and I know the quality they’re striving for — this really relies on the help of the comic book community if they can achieve that success or not. Please help out! The good people of Yeti Press would like to share amazing indie comics with you.

They’re asking for $10,000 for a 2014 subscription service. They’ve already got nearly $4,000 of that money. Options available on the service are FALL/WINTER, SPRING/SUMMER, or FULL YEAR subscriptions. They plan on releasing three titles each two seasons of the year, including:

  • Bird Witch Collection by Kat Leyh (Fall/Winter)
  • Pecos Collection by RJ Casey and Eric Roesner (Fall/Winter)
  • Rose from the Dead by Andrea Bell (Fall/Winter)
  • Poop, Boobs, Poo by Sam Sharpe (Spring/Summer)
  • Well Come by Erik Nebel (Spring/Summer)
  • The Summit by RJ Casey and Gabriel Bautista (Spring/Summer)

Pledgers of $50 or more can choose to sub for the Fall/Winter batch or Spring/Summer batch of comics. There’s also awesome prints and commissions to be owned by you if you choose to chip in the corresponding amount of donation money. 

You can’t go wrong helping a small comic book publisher. Anything counts, so please consider a donation!

Kickstart This Shizz: Dino Pet
Dino Pet is a classy toy that teaches kids about bioluminescence. Photosynthesis occurs during the day as sunlight hits the dinosaur, and at night it’s all charged up and aglow. The smooth silhouette reminds me of a vinyl toy, and even though this is meant for kids, I kind of want one. Pledging $30 on Dino Pet’s Kickstarter page and you your own glowasaurus.

WE ARE LAUNCHING A KICKSTARTER!!!
We’re launching a Kickstarter on March 1st to make this site fresher, radder, more… adequate. We want to film a regular series of minidocumentaries about passionate people creating fantastic things. We want to finally be able to afford travelling to all the press events we get invited to. We want to bring you video interviews with your favorite actors, directors, cartoon creators, game developers and more.
In a nutshell, we want to bring you more of the fresh content that brought you here in the first place, only on a much LARGER scale.
Not only that, but we want to turn this site into a legitimate business - a full-blown brand. Original videos, podcasts, livestreams, t-shirts, stickers, convention booths, the whole 9 yards.
Our goal is gonna’ be pretty big, but with over 120,000 Tumblr followers and around 1,000 new followers every day, we’re pretty sure we can make it happen. A project like this takes way more to finance than the site makes from ads in a month (which is about enough to buy a used sports game if we’re lucky).
So far we have some pretty amazing incentives planned. Check it.
PC/tablet/smartphone wallpaper pack with a buttload of wallpapers designed by some insanely talented artists like Byron Buslig, Maré Odomo, Erick Scarecrow, and former editor of Electronic Gaming Monthly/founder of Shawnimals, Shawn Smith!
An Albotas Papercraft figure designed by Mekazoo
A compilation of exclusive chiptune tracks by swell dudes like Ro-Bear and a bonus track by DJ Cutman
A hardcover book featuring some of our favorite Daily Graffiti pix from over the years
A hardcover book featuring some of our favorite geeky custom toys we’ve featured over the years
An exclusive resin figure of our Albotapus mascot produce by Shinbone Creative
We’ve been hard at work planning this project for close to three months now and we’d really like to see all the effort we’ve put into this site over the years pay off. This is our chance to create something truly unique and shine a spotlight on creators and projects that would otherwise go unnoticed. This is our chance to bring all corners of geek culture and creativity into one place like never before.
If you are an artist, brand, or chipmusician who would like to be involved with our Kickstarter backer incentives, please email brownkidd@albotas.
It would mean the world to us if you’d kindly share this post with your friends and loved ones through Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr.
Thanks and stay awesome,Robby “brownkidd” Weiss

Kickstart This Shizz: GameStick - The Ultra-Portable $79 Gaming Console

Kickstart This Shizz: LA Game Space

For the past few decades video games have challenged us, inspired us, brought us together, and, most of all, made us feel something. 

LA Game Space aims to serve as sort of a headquarters for experimental (a.k.a. “indie”) game design by hosting exhibitions, workshops, artist residencies for budding game developers, talks from guest speakers, and research labs.

There’s also some pretty huge names attached to this project like Adam Robezzoi (Attract Mode), Pendleton Ward (Adventure Time), Ben Esposito (Unfinished Swan), Chris Osborn (Bit.Trip Series), Eric Nakamura (Giant Robot), and more. 

This is a chance for us give back and help push the medium forward. The project is up on Kickstarter with a goal of $250,000. You can get a whopping 30 new games from top indie developers for only $15, and the incentives just get better from there.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, OUYA is the Android-based, open platform gaming console that set out to earn $950,000 on Kickstarter and blew that goal out of the water by raking in over $8M. If you’d like to give them an extra push, the Kickstarter campaign ends today.

Kickstart This Shizz: GameDock Turns Your iDevice Into A Full-Fledged Retro Gaming Console

The GameDock aims to combine the more tactile controls of the iCade with the TV connectivity of a home console. This right here, this is the future of gaming, dudes. One device that can be played on the go or hooked up to a TV for maximum gameage. It also supports all the same games as the iCade, which is A LOT, so yeah.

So far, the GameDock has made almost $11,000 of its $50,000 goal and there’s 45 days left to turn it into a real thing that I can skip work and play with my buds.

Kickstart this shizz NOW!
