This Week in Kickstarter
Share this post
It may be football season in the US right now, but it's always football season everywhere else in the world. Enter Howler, a new glossy periodical chronicling American and international soccer four times a year. The first edition, which is larger and more colorful than your average mag, began hitting mailboxes this week and backers seem to be thrilled, with a certain Mr. Ben Berman tweeting, "brand new @whatahowler, 1st issue. best. subway reading. ever." Check out what Mr. Berman is talking about in this video, which shows off every single page of the first edition in a mere 123 seconds.
In other periodical news, Tomorrow Magazine may be hitting mailboxes... tomorrow? Be on the lookout for your mailman, who hopefully has a copy of the "future now" publication in tow. Learn more and check out the cover on our Tumblr.
Meanwhile, while Jay-Z was opening up the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, the folks behind The Illuminator decided to take the show outside by projecting words and images onto the controversial development. The crew demonstrates awareness in action, calling out the contentious use of eminent domain to make way for construction of the arena.
And lastly, before you head off into the weekend, we had to point you in the direction of one of the best project videos we've seen this week. It comes from These Treats Don't Suck, and let's just say that it is very well edited. If you've ever wondered what the deal is with gluten, you need to watch this ASAP. It will answer all your questions — and leave you laughing all the way to the rice cakes.
