This Week in Kickstarter

We fell in love with spam poetry. Specifically the spam poetry Erin Watson is making based on @Horse_ebooks tweets. For those unfamiliar, @Horse_ebooks is a spam twitter account, but in Erin's hands it is simply inspiration for her poetry. Basically, her muse is spam, which is probably the best thing spam has ever been.
Hey, guess what, games are kind of a big deal on Kickstarter. Did y'all know that? You probably did, and we did, too, but the supporting evidence in our Year of the Game post from earlier this week proves how much the category has evolved over the last year. Something tells me this is not a fad, but the future of gaming.
Have you ever thought about living like the Jetsons? You know, you're in space and you are hanging out with your family, and your robotic maid whips up delicious space meals with the ease only a robotic maid has. If this sounds like a dream you once had, you may want to check out Multiplo, a new open hardware project that allows anyone to build their own robot. Now let's all daydream about what we'd make these robots do for us. First, make more coffee. Second, make the bed. Lastly, cook up some space food.
Lastly. What do Danny Devito, Roasio Dawson, Robert Forster, Carla Gugino, Rufus Sewel, Mandy Moore and Kevin Connelly all have in common? They are starring in Sebastian Gutierrez's forthcoming independent film Hotel Noir. If trenchcoats, cigarettes, revolvers and femme fatales interest you, you should really check this project out asap, as it's right up your alley.
