is creating unhinged travel videos, photography, and podcasts

Violent Aperitif is a travel project springing from one man's job as an amateur hotel and food critic, coupled with the mutant desire to find the insane, hidden corners of Los Angeles and then the world. The last two years have seen us visit the ocean caves of Los Angeles, abandoned water parks in the middle of the desert, shipwrecks that date back to the 60s, wind caves, ghost towns, and the most unique art walks known to man.

The ultimate goal has always been to create a travelogue, and now we're making that push. But we'd encourage you to look at the photography that's resulted from the past couple of years, right here.

What follows is the rough cut trailer cobbled together from shaky cell phone footage that I didn't happen to lose. Highlights include the Skyline festival of 2014, a scouting trip from Route 66, and shots of a vintage car show.


And this is where the internet comes into it. We're now planning our first big video project, a trip along the California section of Route 66. We've set up volcano hikes, lava tube cave explorations, an in-depth look at how to make an emu egg omelet, and more. As the once vital main artery of transit and commerce in the United States, now largely reduced to dust and obscurity, this is the most affordable special we can make, and we cast an eye toward doing the entire thing one day.

Additional specials based on invitations MAY include South America in the summer, and Egypt toward the fall.

In addition to all this, you can expect regular videos, podcasts, and essays on food, hotels, and travel tips. Tip #1: Make sure you don't check in while a convention is occurring. While furries have excellent elevator etiquette, it's still loud and you can barely order a drink.

Fact is, we can do this on our own and we're just floored that friends and even strangers have spoken up toward supporting us. The most vital thing you can do is simply to get word of the campaign out there; actually donating is well above what we'd expect. Notes of encouragement and suggestions are welcome no matter if you've pledged or not, and the main content we create will always be free to everybody. For this reason, we won't create milestone goals until we've figured out how to make them benefit everybody. The audience sustains us, and we are beholden to all of you equally.

Access to the production blog, where we detail the projects we're working on as we're working on them. We mostly like to keep things a surprise, but if you don't mind knowing what's coming up, this is for you.
Pledge $5 or more per month
Access to the raw photo galleries. We meticulously photograph and catalog the locations we visit. Now we'll be doing that here, both cataloging upcoming projects and posting from our archives of unique previous expeditions.

We'll fine tune this one, but live streams are an ambition and behind the scenes videos are a definite. If Gabe flies by in the background using a jetpack made out of prostitutes, you'll know you're partly to blame.
