  I have this page because I spend a fair amount of time making stuff that doesn't make any money. I blog and podcast about superheroes and robots. I make videos about karaoke culture. I write plays and screenplays (this is the thing I do that comes closest to making money, yet still manages to make almost no money). I have and have had real jobs too, but I continue to do the things which don't seem like real jobs because they don't make much money. 
  And that's fine! I mainly like it when people just like my stuff. But if you would like to support my stuff with money, that'd be excellent! If you just like my stuff and are able to share it among your friends and internet communities, that's great too.
  Thank you kindly! Much more to come.
Tiers

$1 is a big deal! You get access to most Patreon-only content, may be (optionally) mentioned by name in a playscript and/or a blog, and are eligible for one of our random surprise gifts!

Nosecone
$3 or more per month

$3 is a bigger deal because we feel life in threes. Beginnings, middles, ends. Play/blog namedrop, and a surprise gift!

Lightspeeds

$8 is like buying your buddy a beer or a burrito! Significant but low-commitment. And you can get a Melancholyball mashup mug or shwag bag in one of our AOC/superhero designs!

$16 is a default amount for daring someone to do something.  I'll tweet affectionately and write a poem for you, and you will be eligible for one of our Melancholyball mashup items! (Styles vary depending on supply.)

Piranacon

36 is my favorite number, and gives you special Decepticon status. Also! Your choice of one of our custom mashup T-shirts, in one of our 3 AOC/superhero styles or another witty pop-cultural reference style!

Fifty bucks is highly generous. You will get your choice of two of our custom mashup T-shirts, a bonus surprise gift, and our next karaoke/cosplay/custom video will be dedicated to you.

Chinese and Jewish people share the superstition that the number 8, and $ gifted in multiples of 8, are extra-auspicious.

Everyone who becomes a patron gets the option to have their name written into this play I’m writing, in which there is a very thrilling and suspenseful scene of petition signature-gathering. Possibly it will be the most exciting petition scene ever put forth in the annals of Western Democracy! Possibly.
