Daniel Klein kinda looks like a thinking man’s Dane Cook. This turns out to be highly appropriate as he is a thinking man who cooks. (Hooray!) An artist, filmmaker, activist, and chef, Klein raised $10k on Kickstarter last spring to create a weekly web series traversing the gardens, farms, and wild backwoods of Minnesota to see where his food comes from. With elegant cinematography, dynamic food producers, and an adventurous flare, the alternatives featured on Perennial Plate are a feast for the eyes (let alone the belly). 52 episodes and 10,000 weekly viewers deep, Perennial Plate is now hitting the road to feature real, sustainable, and wild food and all across America. This isn’t Man vs. Wild or Man v. Food; more like Man + Wild + Food = Friends. Less aggro-, more agrarian. Good math! — Elisabeth H.

I generally support anything involving food: the making of food, the eating of food, the looking at of food. This project has all of those things, plus it thrives on generating a sense of community and it supports local artists. That is a win-win-win situation, and I wish a little bit that it weren’t taking place across the country from me. Luckily, there are still a smattering of cool, handmade rewards for those that can’t attend. — Cassie M.

Indie game studio Lantana has been hard at work on their new historical stealth platformer that takes place the night before the Battles of Lexington and Concord. The Lantana team has spared no detail, from the 100+ hand drawn animations, characters, and backgrounds to the historically accurate sound recordings, including the “sound of footsteps on the floorboards of the Longfellow House.” The game is technically for kids, but so are a lot of things in life that are way too much fun to give up. And hypothetically, if an adult (who shall not be named) were to play this game, said grown-up would definitely choose to play as “Sarah, the adorable but deadly Colonial Ninja.” — Cindy A.

A few years ago, Corina Dross and her friends were having a rough go of things and had run out of practical solutions. Being the kind of lady she is, Corina started making sketches to give to her friends — portable fortitudes, to keep them safe. Some examples: Protection of Bicycle Mishap, Protection from Narcissism, Lynda Barry. They’re beautiful and I want them all: Protection from Feeling Left Out, Protection from Heartbreak, Protection from Divine Indifference, Walt Whitman. Eventually, there were 54, and she turned them into a deck of playing cards. There’s even one about bedbugs. Suffice it to say, I’m a backer. — Meaghan O.

Continuing to tap into the treasure chests of private-press obscurities, Maine’s Time-Lag records is working on keeping a few of gems alive in the modern world. The label’s latest mission is to preserve a group of four records, which Time-lag’s Nemo Bidstrup describes as, “from the ultra obscure, to the already legendary, this batch of four albums spans eight years & a wide spectrum of all the sonic joys that can be found in america’s rich history of privately released lps.” Now, I’m going to have to beg them to re-issue Satwa’s self-titled record on wax for my own personal enjoyment. — Mike M.
