  • Review: The PDX Broadsides – “Relatable Content”

    This year I have sponsored a lot of Kickstarter creative work, including lots of music. One that I was very excited to support was The PDX Broadsides’ latest album, Relatable Content.

  • Zach Braff’s Kickstarter

    A little over a month ago I came across an article on Boing Boing about the movie Zach Braff was trying to get funded via Kickstarter.
