WE DID IT! Time for stretch goals!

Thanks so much to everyone who helped reach my initial goal!

  • UNLOCKED: $5,000 Mr. Poopy Butthole Music Video! 
  • LOCKED: $10,000 Two more original songs! (Released separately)

Who's making a WHAT album?

Hi, my name is Allie Goertz and I write nerdy love songs. It's been three years since my first crowd-sourced album, Cossbysweater (oops), and now I'm back to release an album of Rick and Morty songs!

Here I am in the studio recording the Rick and Morty album.

What's Rick and Morty

A younger version of myself would spew, "How do you not know Rick and Morty," and then run home to watch TV alone because people who talk like that don't have friends.

This version of myself is happy to tell you that Rick and Morty is a wonderful cartoon created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon that will make your whole life better! It cures diseases! (It doesn't cure diseases.) This show has cured SO many diseases that I have decided to write an album in its honor! 

What will the album sound like? 

Through the magic of iMovie, I have inserted a sample of my first track in the video above. My last album was a collection of nerdy folk songs, but for THIS one, I have literally thrown my acoustic guitar in the trash! SCREW YOU, acoustic guitar. (Donations will go directly towards replacing my guitar which I loved very much. I miss you, acoustic guitar.) 

This album is inspired by Mazzy Star, Chaos Chaos, the soundtrack from Drive, and the soothing screech of Mr. Meeseeks.

Music... Video? 

Yes! I have recruited the incredibly talented Paul B. Cummings to make a music video for my song Dance Bitch and could not be more excited. In addition to his extensive commercial and television work, he has made videos for Paul Simon, Charlyne Yi, Lemuria, & Nathan Barnette. Our video will be funny, sad, and filled with blood, but we need YOUR help to make it.

How can you help? 

Not everyone has 25 schmeckles to spare. We have contribution options from $10 to $100 and every dollar counts! If you can't offer financial support, please consider sharing this Kickstarter with your friends. If you do have money, why not make a donation in your enemy's name?  

Tell me about the prizes! 

In addition to helping me make a project I truly love and stand behind, you deserve to be rewarded and we've got lots to choose from. I'm talkin' buttons, I'm talkin' T-shirts, I'm talkin' all you can eat Skype calls! Take a look at the prizes and feel free to ask any questions.

Shirts and posters will be designed by Rick and Morty cover artist, Julieta Colás. Buttons will be designed by Aurora Lady

AND THAT'S THE WAY THE NEWS GOES!

Thank you so much for any help and NEVER stop watching Rick and Morty.
