About this project

At $4,000 I record a song singing All of the backer's names!
At $4,500 I record an 5-6 song acoustic cd of songs from "Rated Heart" and send a digital copy to all of the backers.


(Be sure to email me at ProfessorShyguyMail@gmail.com to get your tracks!)

A year since the first album has released, and Album 2 is recorded!  A Chiptune albums driven by high energy, pop beats, epic vocals, ripping guitar solos, and the occasional crooning sadness.  Also, you get 10/12ths of the album the day you buy a perk.

As per my usual, most of the songs are about video games, and the other half are fair game.  I have a song where the words in the verses are in alphabetical order, I have a song about the perceptions of science, and a song about the demise of the original cuts of Star Wars episodes IV-VI.  Kyle Hebert (the narrator of Dragon Ball Z narrates the intro), Amanda Lepre sings the part of Samus, and Duane & BrandO accompany me on a song about the number 3.

I'd like to get physical versions of the cd made as well, printed, pressed, and sent to you.  Shirts, buttons, stickers, etc.  All the things it takes to survive on a tour when I make my way to come see you and sing these songs to your face. 

The projected tour dates with Amanda Lepre, D&D Slugger, and Me are.

6/27 - Austin, TX @ Hole in the Wall

6/28 - Dallas, TX @ Boiler Room 6/29 - Off

6/30 - Fayetteville, AK @ Smoke & Barrell

7/1 - St Louis, MO @ Blank Space

7/2 - (Pending)

7/3 - Buffalo, NY @ Nietzsche's

7/4 - Off

7/5 - Boston, MA @ PA Lounge

7/6 - Philadelphia, PA @ The Fire

7/7 - Baltimore, MA @ Metro Gallery

7/8 - Raleigh, NC @ The Black Flower

7/9 - Atlanta, GA @ The Fire

7/10 - Nashville (Pending)


Also, I would like to shoot a video for the RPG Song, rent a nice camera, get some props, use some locations, pay the people to help me shoot it, etc.  I made the Guilded Love video for, basically, zero.  Imagine the things I could do with a budget.

Risks and challenges

Before I started this Kickstarter I tried to do as much preparation as possible to minimize delays. Most importantly, the songs are recorded and ready to send as soon as you pledge. The physical cds, shirts, buttons, etc will be send off to get printed when this Kickstarter reaches it's goal!
