Hi everyone,
first off thank you for even visiting this page. I understand that not everyone is in a position to financially support the artists they love... if that's the case, no sweat. I still really appreciate your support in every other way. Whether that's you spreading the word, sharing a link, or even just blasting poetry at a stop sign through your open car window (which is so literary gangster by the way)... it all helps and is very much appreciated.

I'm guessing that a lot of you know me because of other work I've done, To This Day, Troll, Heaven or Whatever, Shoulders, and the like. I get asked a lot to make more videos or record more pieces or re-record pieces to make them classroom friendly. Believe me when I tell you that there's almost nothing else I want to be doing, but you guessed it... it's costly. I work with a lot of amazing people and am always trying to expand my collaborative horizons, but we're all limited in how much of our time we can donate. As much as I'd like to be paid for what I do I would also really like to pay the people who help me do it. Yes, I write the poems, but there's a lot of other magic that goes into the videos, music, and illustrations. When I say magic I mean really hard work done by monstrously talented individuals whom I love.

So why should you pledge? So we can keep doing it. There's a ton of projects I'd like to get off from the drafting board and into actual production, but i need your help to do it.

Here's a short list of things I'd like to do with your support:

Podcast
Videos
Audio Recordings
Short Films
Web Series
Graphic Novel
Children's Book
Feature Film
Documentary
Animations
Illustrated Poems

I think the "per thing" method makes more sense than the monthly path. Some projects will just take longer than others so it will help keep the pressure off and insure the quality of each creation. Sometimes you can end up cutting corners if you're trying to reach a deadline... this just makes sure that I won't have to do that.

I thank you again for any and all of your support in its many forms. Now let's make art.

Yours,
       Shane

One dollar equals one massive thank you. THANK YOU. Okay... that's as big as the font will allow... I had to scale it down a little, but I don't mean it any the less. Thank you for supporting.

Five bucks!?! Whaaaat? Besides the preposterously huge amount of gratitude I have for you you'll also receive digital downloads of the creation... whatever it may be. Also if we bump into each other out in the big wide world you will receive hugs on tap. I thought of using hugs on demand, but demanding hugs doesn't sound right... also hugs on tap is a better acronym... H.O.T... now that's hot.

Ten fricken dollars!!! There's not much more I can offer... the gratitude, the digital downloads, the free membership to the H.O.T.test club around, but what else is there? This is a tremendous amount of support so it has to be something that reflects the kind of love you're giving me... but what? Kisses? Snuggles? Tennis? Should I send you a kitten in the mail? I honestly don't know. How about this... from time to time I'll send you some free digital stuff. Could be a video, a recording... an illustrated poem. Whatever it is it'll be in your hands first and could even be exclusive. Does that work? The words thank you seem so small and insufficient when weighed against your generosity... I promise you I'll do my very best to earn it.
