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 content creator, and I'm so happy that you're here right now.

Prior to working with Peter, due to my extremely lacking visual art skills, I did a lot of alternative theme songs (TV themes/WWE themes). My recent focus has been "emotionally-charged weird songs," as I frequently call them, with lush+funny+creative music vids from my buddy Peter.

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

You're helping me create and grow. I do this full time, at least 5 days a week, all year long, and I've been doing it that way since 2014. I don't make a lot of money, but I'm very happy with my life. And like many other non-PG channels on YouTube, I basically make nothing from ad revenue (about $50 a month right now) because my content is frequently "not advertiser friendly."

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, 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 just a direct way to get involved and make sure that sweet content stream (SCS) keeps on flowin'. 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. This is a luxury good, not a necessity, and I'm really, really, really, grateful for every cent I get. THANK YOU! And if you can't afford to support me, enjoy the videos and songs anyway!

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.

Hotter Dad

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
  • Listen to demos of tracks from upcoming albums (when upcoming albums exist)! Want a sneak peek before I complete mixing/mastering? Here you go!

Really Hot Dad

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.

  • All previous rewards
  • Make suggestions and vote! Feel free to throw an idea at me here and there and I'll add it to the poll.

Sun Dad

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
  • All of my albums on Bandcamp for free (and future albums on Bandcamp, as long as this Patreon is still running)

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
$766 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!
