Update 7 (May 23):

Okay, we're at over $12,000.  This is incredible.

So for the FINAL BONUS LEVEL, if we're able to get the project to $14,000 I will do a live stream of an upcoming Caustic show JUST FOR BACKERS.  I will then make it available for download EXCLUSIVELY for you all.

___________________________________

Caustic has exploded even further onto the world electronic scene thanks to the success and help from the incredibly attractive backers of 2010's THE GOLDEN VAGINA OF FAME AND PROFIT, finally allowing him to achieve the deserved status of "Almost Notable, But Still Not a Dubstep Artist." 

Caustic now dines in New York City's Algonquin Room (now a dart room in a Chili's) and makes out with the Kardashian sisters' assistants.  However, as we all know, fame no longer equates with riches (but please don't tell that to Khloe's assistant) and, according to many reports, it's apparently ILLEGAL to actually make money releasing music today.  Because of this Caustic is humbly asking his aforementioned attractive (and no doubt wild in the sack) fans to help raise the relatively small sum of $2,500 for his upcoming album (and yes, not as amusingly titled) THE MAN WHO COULDN'T STOP

Hell, $2,500 is what KISS pays per day for STD treatments...we hear.

Caustic's newest musical extrazamaganza is a massive 18 track, 70-plus minute opus inspired by each of the 18 chapters of the classic, awesomely mega-pretentious James Joyce novel Ulysses.

And yes, the appropriate reference is "Uh...what?"  Bear with us...

So is this also an awesomely mega-pretentious concept album?  Hell no, that's way too much work.  Nope, Caustic just wanted to use another work to be the inspiration for an album, and Ulysses was the one that made him laugh the hardest when he thought of it.  There is some more to it, but all will be revealed in time.

Besides, could an album with titles like "Demon Seed Semen Deed",  "Failing at the School of Life", and "Internet Model" be all that pretentious?  Answer: WE THINK NOT.

Pledged funds will once again go to pay for the production, mixing, and design costs for The Man Who Couldn't Stop (this album is nearly twice the length of the last one too, stretching your hard earning pledge money even further).  Any additional funds over the $2,500 will be set aside for offsetting touring expenses, potential video shoots, as well as to buy lots of ad space in Homes and Gardens, which Caustic still thinks is his key untapped fan base.

Caustic has mined his noggin to come up with fun premiums for his backers this time around, from signed copies of the CD to Caustic penning a fanfic adventure with you (a non-sexy one, ideally) to you actually PARTICIPATING in a track on the album.  Oh, and if you pledge enough Caustic will get a daisy tattoo along with your initials inked on his dainty ankle.  And you know he's not lying, much to the chagrin (and loud eye rolling) of his wife.

Please help Caustic's insane vision come to life and pledge today!
