The Brain Dump
is the latest demented video mashup web series from the mind of designer / director / drummer Frank Coleman.

In the tradition of legendary underground public access TV shows like Made In The USA and The Hypnotic Eye, you'll never know what you're going to see next! And Patreon is the only way to get to the Dump!

[[ NOTE: The "$ per episode" number in the upper left hand corner of this page is the total amount that's been pledged from all my patrons, per episode. It's NOT how much an episode costs! ]]

Patreon is a crowdfunding platform like Kickstarter, but instead of pledging a lot of money once for a single project, a Patreon campaign is a monthly pay-what-you-like subscription. 

It's a better deal for everybody. Artists need everything from mundane supplies to expensive equipment on an ongoing basis, and patrons can contribute in a way that really makes a difference, for as little as a dollar a month. You can cancel at any time.

What you get for your support is a ringside seat at our ongoing existential circus, as well as the advancement of our fiendish plan for Rule The World (TM). You'll help us create new episodes, keep the router stocked with Internet Oil and ensure an unbroken supply of cat treats for King George the Furred.

As thanks for becoming our patron, you'll also get an instant link to a number of downloadable goodies, including:
  • a movie trailer featuring our mascot, Mr. Craw Lingeye of Trollenberg;
  • the complete "performance" by the gentleman with the malfunctioning hurdy-gurdy in the welcome video ^ up top;
  • and a Tiny Tutorial called "How to Make Your Mac 100 Times More User-Friendly in Less Than Three Minutes."

We thank you for your time and ask for your support! If you're already on board, we deeply appreciate your patronage.

And now - off to the dump!
