Hey, I'm ThinkerThunker!

I love making Youtube videos and sharing my findings with the world!

I love taking these blurry, hand-held, shaky videos, stabilizing them (which is an art from unto itself) and then scrubbing through frame by frame to see if I can find that one, inexplicable thing that the world overlooked. 

In return, Youtube runs adds on my videos and gives me a whopping 003 cents per view while keeping .03 a view, making a small fortune for themselves. But the dream was eventually I could make a decent living while doing what I love. After all, working on society's oldest question, "Are we alone?' is worth a little sacrifice. One my wife and I both believe in. 

The only problem is most people (including myself) HATE watching commercials. So they use ad-blockers. Which means I only make just about enough from Youtube to pay our utilities (for my Wife and I, in a small space :)  And that amount was getting smaller by the month.

So after four years of trying - FULL TIME - I finally had to walk away from doing this thing I love, from being ThinkerThunker. But we all have to earn a living, right? 

So I left to pursue other interests and didn't make one, single video for an entire year.

But some of you wouldn't have it. So you sought me out and asked me to give Patreon a try.

So ... I said OK.

Now I'm proud to say that between Patreon, selling my tshirts, caps and mugs at ThinkerThunker.com and what little Youtube pays me ... I still can't even come close to make a decent living making these videos.

But I can at least afford the time it takes to make about one video a month.

I miss not being able to interact with everyone, or check out the photos and videos you all send in, or answer emails and messages the way I used to. But something is better than nothing.

And who knows what the future will bring. Maybe Youtube will outlaw ad-blockers. Or maybe everyone will suddenly feel generous enough to turn off their ad-blockers so that I can earn my .003 :)

All I ask here is $1 a month. How long you participate is up to you. 

That's it. Thank you for your time and support.

***And by the way; most think if I make a ten minute video, it took me ten minutes to make. 
You know how a 90 minute movie can take three to five years to make, and that's with hundreds of people working hard ...? It's the same for me.

I'm call myself ThinkerThunker for a reason. Often times I will mull an idea over for years, trying different things before I finally find something worth sharing with you guys. So now ya know :)

Goals
$674 of $2,500 per month
Reaching my first goal will essentially mean that (ALL OF YOU) have hired a man obsessed with digging through BF videos frame by frame (ME) to continue searching through all the videos out there for overlooked details or insight into what is surely one of the most fascinating topics mankind will ever be presented with.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
