Here’s the Story Kickstarter Campaign Kickoff!

Here’s the Story Kickstarter Campaign Kickoff!

This is Here’s the Story’s most awesome month yet. And to celebrate we’ve decided to dabble in fundraising Kickstarter style. If you have any great Kickstarter Anecdotes to tell us, please hit us with them. We are very excited about this opportunity, and are looking forward to learning the ins and outs of crowd-founding, and believe it will grow our base and help keep us motivated.

Congratulations to Ron and Xavier, we cordially invite you back to feature Sept 2nd

First off, special thanks to Monte for getting us these awesome photos, right after the show!

Second! Wow, 46 people filled out cards and we ended up with a tie. Both Ron and Xavier scored the exact same number of points. That’s crazy! They also scored the exact same number of 15s!

When counting up all the points I found it a little ironic that Ron got the most points from the three people in the audience who refused to be constrained by our tyrannical rules. Only 50 points! Pfft, how about I try and give away 61! Or, only 15 to one person? I’m going to drop 35 on on one person! What are they going to do? Normalize the scores, just like they said at the beginning of the show?

It’s great because that’s totally the sort of stunt I would pull, not out of malice to rules, but because I’m that bad at math.

An Outpouring of Thanks

April 1st was our first Anniversary! We are officially one year old. And a ton of you showed up to celebrate, thank you. It was great to see such a crowd of people checking in on us. I hope we dolled out an ample amount of hugs.

For those of you who missed the April 1st show or any of the past shows, live vicariously!

In observance of April 1st, one of our features this month was asked to tell a fib. If you want to skip the suspense, click bellow to find out who it was.

Congratulations Joshua Safford!

Ahh, I’m so happy that Joshua Safford was so well received!

Totally magical! Thanks so much for coming out. A good friend, Kristin Abhalter, (Creator of the awesome Runner Trophy we presented during the robot apocalypse.) invited me out to a magic show a stint back and it’s there that I was introduced to Joshua for the first time. I slipped him a Here’s the Story postcard and upon looking at it he told me plainly, this is the sort of event for me. (Special thanks to Amy Kuttab for her great artwork.)

People to Thank, and Room for You to Comment!

We will be putting up a sentimental, heartfelt thanks, probably Thursday, (I have a lot to say) but I wanted to get a little memento from the night up today. We will be taking two weeks to come up with a good ending based on the stories we heard/collected/shared. We will post that story on Monday Oct. 3rd as a featured article here. Meanwhile we will be posting scattering thoughts about the night, and work on how best to collect and present the creative work that the runners and robots did to help make the night. We will also be posting the race stats we collected. (As well as continue with the normal Here’s the Story articles.)

In regards to the final outcome of Robot Apocalypse the survivors made varying choices.

Here’s the Story Goes to Renegade Craft Fair

As I was making the new T-shirts at Spudnik Press, this pretty girl she asks, “Are you making those for Renegade?”

“No.”

But it struck me that Renegade Craft Fair was a place I should probably go.

Renegades love stories! Crafters are all about tales. So I went out on Saturday and Sunday and slung some postcards. I tried to be judicious about it. I put on my best Derren Brown cold reader face. And besides two doldrumy snarks, I felt like a crack dealer.
