Cosmic Acquaintance

reward item
$1
per month
Every amount counts and giving me $1 to $4 a month is still a very big deal to me.  I can't thank you enough for taking the extra step to support me as an artist. You have my eternal gratitude and a few cool benefits too.


  • Access to Patron only posts, updates, etc
Sometimes this will be a video message from me, other times it may be a poem, or a riff I'm working on, a journal entry or a sketch.


  • Access To Patron Only Merch Items
Once this thing gets rolling I will be making small runs of cool items like prints, zines apparel, etc that are only available to Patron members.


  • Access To The Unconscious Collective Private Discord Server
I've used the name THE UNCONSCIOUS COLLECTIVE for a long time, sometimes as my web store, other times as my publishing company, but this is going to be the first time it gets to be an interactive portal to you and I... It just feels so right!


 -Art, Music, Culture, Experience themed Text Chats
A place for trip reports, ghost stories, love stories, gear talk, show reviews, link sharing, conversations about culture at large as well as The Cosmic Nod Podcast of course.  


-Random messages from me in the studio, on the road, at home...
Similar to the patron only updates but this would be more real-time interactions. 


-Cosmic Nod listener Time Capsule 
Just as I ask each guest of the show to place something into the Imaginal Time Capsule on the show, this will be the listener version. I can't wait to see what you put in there.  


  • Comment Each Month to Be Considered For Monthly Give Away Contest
-Each month a patron's comment will be chosen to get some swag from the shop or something awesome from my own collection.i.e., Prints, Patches, Pins, Books, Apparel, Original Art, old mementos and more. 

Cosmic Associate

reward item
$5
per month
This tier is a crucial line of support. By pledging this you are helping to sustain all of my creative practices.  If anything I've ever created has impacted your life in a positive way this is a wonderful way to say thank you, even if it's only for a month or two.  


Welcome to Lv1 membership for the Podcast. You'll get all the interviews before anyone else. Considering I have over 50+ unreleased episodes at the moment, there will be a lot of these. 


There will also be a lot of special art content that I post that will start at this level. Specifically I will post Hi Res line art to be used for your own prints, coloring book pages and or tattoo designs.


Not only does this give you access to the Patron Only posts and Private Discord from the previous tier but starting at this level I'll be hosting private group voice chats !

About

(Who The Hell Do I Think I Am?) 

HI THERE! Depending on a vast array of factors that brought you here you may or may not have an understanding of who I am and what I do... My name is Colin. I love to make things. I live to communicate with and connect to all types of people. I am a musician, visual artist, writer, podcast host, seeker, critical thinker, psychedelic advocate, public speaker and a plethora of other things that I have yet to officially become or have the courage to call myself. I do all of these things independently as well as collaboratively and I've been doing them "full time" now for well over 15 years. 

Thank You For Giving A Damn... I feel insanely lucky that one or perhaps a few of the things that I do has somehow connected to you and made you want to support me in a more direct, concrete and sustaining way and for that I CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH. I plan on putting a lot of thought, care and energy into this and I look forward to building something that makes you even more proud and excited to support me.

Why I Need You... We all need help. I'm just learning how to ask for it now as it's not something that's ever been easy for me to do. It has become untenable for me to continue pursuing my visions without assistance.  I want to do an art show in a house instead of a gallery. I want to do more remixes, finish my 2nd solo album and multiple musical side project collaborations. I want to write and publish my first book. I want to do workshops on sacred creativity all over the world. I want to finish the multiple screen plays I have half written. I want to host live podcast events for The Cosmic Nod.  And so on... I have so many creative desires but frankly without your help I will be unable to keep any of them my priority.  I have reached a state where I spend all of my time outside of the band, grinding on commissions or promoting, producing and fulfilling my webstore in order to support myself and family. This is a perfectly fine living that I am lucky to have and while I already work far more than I would like, I can't help but feel like I could be doing so much more... I feel like those who have supported me through the years have expressed wanting this from me as well.

A Simple Equation... The more support I receive, the more I can explore, make cooler stuff, support causes that I believe in and even hire people to help me like : an editor for my podcast, someone to help me fulfill my webstore orders so I can keep it open while I'm traveling, rad independent printers, designers for my products and projects, engineers and other musicians & artists for my projects and so on...  

The Struggle Is Real... As I'm sure you can relate, when sweating how to pay bills every month it becomes harder and harder to carve out the time to explore my most interesting ideas, to put the most into the ones I already am juggling and most importantly to do them with integrity and without third party interference... When it comes to my visual art, solo music, writing and podcast; these are self funded ventures of passion that I have no interest in compromising out of desperation via selling percentages and input to corporate entities that I simply don't align with... The reality however is that if I don't have a more stable line support for these things I get put in a position of choosing between compromise, delay or defeat.

It's Time To Step Up... Having been encouraged by so many of you over the years to start something like this and I have finally decided to give it a try. With multiple successes via Kickstarter and Indiegogo under my belt I have faith and experience in crowdfunding as something beyond just a stabilizing force but something progressively empowering to artists and their supporters. I myself have actively supported multiple creators on here and it's made me extremely INSPIRED to make my own. 

Let's Make Something Magical Together...  Over the years I have noticed an increasingly recognizable and shared spirit amongst those who really resonate with the things I do and I think it's finally time to bring you all together! I will definitely be communicating with you for what it is you'd like to see more or less of on here and see this ultimately as a collaboration to make this a mutually fulfilling as possible. I want this Patreon to serve whatever purpose you came here for but I would also love to create a community of new and old friends here that is centered on a sharing of interests, relationships and questions that tend to inspire us.  I want to talk about art, music, films, books, food, health and all the other things with you and if this grows into the community I'm imagining that it could, I'd love to eventually throw patron only events where we can hang in meat space.

You Are My Safe Place...  For years now I have wanted to be more intimate, vulnerable and communicative with the people who support me but lets be real, it's scary out there and between a zillion apps I'm spread thin. The podcast is a big step in that desired direction and while I of course still strive to be open & authentic on all social media platforms, I hold back ALOT ie: doing videos where I talk to the camera, talk candidly about my life, ideas, struggles, etc. and I would feel way more comfortable doing that here. Seems like the type of thing that this platform was built for. 

I Can't Thank You Enough For Being Here. (BUT I WILL TRY)
  If you are unable to support me on Patreon yourself, you can always suggest it to a friend or even help me promote it, those things mean just as much to me as a pledge. The more sustainable assistance I have, the more signals I can boost, the more causes I can support, the more beauty and truth I can help bring into the world. 

THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

Infinite gratitude, light and love
Colin
Goals
215 of 300 patrons
Once I hit 300 patrons I will release another new Psychic Babble song! (last one dropped August 31st) These goals motivate me to make time for my solo music because normally it is not financially sustainable for me when I am grinding each month to get by. Thank you for supporting this journey! This is essentially working as a different kind of way to crowdfund the new record.
