Hi, everyone! I'm Erik, also known as HOT DAD, and I create emotional/weird/funny music/videos/content. I work with a terrific video editor named Peter, the man also behind all of my graphic design/album covers.

We make a lot of content together, and if you're here right now, you've probably seen at least some of it. I'm proud and extremely grateful to be a full-time content creator, and I can confidently say that that's only been possible because of my beautiful patrons.

OKAY, SO YOU DID AN INTRO—WHAT'S THE "POINT" OF THIS PATREON?

You're joining up with other incredible/kind patrons to help me create and grow (literally and creatively). I do this at least 5 days a week, all year long, and I've been doing it that way since 2014. At my current size, I don't make a lot of $$$, but I'm grateful for what I've got. And like many other non-PG, short-form video channels on YouTube, I basically make nothing from ad revenue because my content is frequently "not advertiser friendly" or too short to be lucrative for ad stuff.

Sometimes I make stuff that's extremely wholesome and SFW, and sometimes I don't. I want that choice to be a fun/creative decision that's up to me/my whims, not dictated by what YouTube supposedly wants.

A lot of y'all really care about what I/we make (and I/we love ya big time for that), so if that's you, this is a direct way to join up with other people who care and make sure that that sweet content stream (SCS) keeps on flowin'. You're becoming part of a strange and fun journey that I'm on with a little help from my beloved pals. And with more money, I'll also be able to pay for professional mixing and mastering + purchase additional equipment/software/whatever to make music with.

You're also helping me pay Peter for his time/effort. Peter signed on as a volunteer back in early 2016 (wow!), and our relationship has evolved far more than I could have ever anticipated. I consider him a crucial part of the HOT DAD VISION™, which means I need to do my best to make sure he's got the free time to be involved ($$$).

If you can't afford to contribute, I understand and still love ya. My primary content will always remain free. I know that this is a luxury good, not a necessity, and I'm really, really, really, grateful for every cent I get. THANK YOU (a lot)!

MUCH LOVE x 25,

Erik

You look in the mirror and all you see is cool. Handsome, but not quite hot. You drive a cool car, and you have fun on your own terms. You spend weekends at "the cabin." You only drink craft cocktails that contain Red Bull.

  • Hey, you're just a buck more supportive!

Wow, we're really getting somewhere, huh? You're hot, your son is hot. Hell, your whole family is hot—and it's a great day to be hot. Cool sunglasses, too, dad.

  • You're even kinder than the tier lower than this one, wow!
  • I might occasionally post a poll and I'll ask you for input and voting!

I'm not even sure what this looks like, but it's you. And it's big-time hot. You're green tea hot (175 degrees Fahrenheit). You've been working out, and it shows. Two pairs of cool sunglasses.

  • All previous rewards
  • You're even kinder still! This is some genuine—and premium—kindness right here!

Even hotter than the last guy. You're french press hot (200 degrees Fahrenheit). I'll add toned, muscular physique to this tier. Three pairs of cool sunglasses. A hot family. A man of talents. So many talents.

  • Digital gift copy of my Girls Who Care - Light Sleeper album!

A scorching father-figure composed of mostly hot plasma. Four pairs of sunglasses. This dad is beyond toned—he's ripped. Any family he's near becomes instantly hotter. His own family is hotter than words can describe. He can do—and has done—everything. Without this dad, our solar system collapses.

  • All previous rewards
  • Access to an occasionally-updated zip file/folder of all of my music from the past few years (MP3 V0), including unreleased demos and content that's never been released on Bandcamp! Get all of my work as Hot Dad (and GWC) in the most convenient way possible—dreams will come true.

You are the father of all of humanity. Your message lives forever. We worship you, O mighty dad.

  • It's just a super support tier, okay? I'll treat you right, but only do this if it's YOUR KINDA THING. This used to include a free song, but honestly, if you want that, just email me at [email protected] and we can work something out. It's much simpler, okay? :)

Goals
$721 of $1,000 per month
Keep Video Quality High—and Improving! Video editor extraordinaire, Mr. Peter Bjorndal, will be able to continue focusing primarily on Hot Dad content, which means consistent and high quality uploads for the foreseeable future. If we don’t reach this goal in a couple months, things could really "fall apart!" Yikes!
