Hi, we’re the Doubleclicks, and we write songs about things like dinosaurs, Dungeons & Dragons, love, books, and cats. We also have a cello, and we’re sisters. You may know us from performing at conventions around the country, from many songs and collaborations (including the theme song for Cards Against Humanity), or from our big geek girl pride music video that came out last year, "Nothing to Prove," full of amazing geek girls and some of our nerdy friends.
The more money we get, the more exciting things we can produce this year. We have plenty of ideas on how to turn money in to FUN(ny). Funny? Yes. So take a look at the project, and please share it with your friends—we can't do it without you! We are extremely thankful that you let us make music for you, and we want to do it forever. FOREVER.

Kid's EP: UNLOCKED!
There are many many people in the world more qualified to talk about gender issues than we are, but here’s what I know: when I was a kid, in school and church and books, most to all of the heroes I saw were men. Media taught us that boys went off and had adventures and became doctors and scientists, and girls should find themselves a cool man who was a doctor or a scientist, and attract him by wearing uncomfortable dresses and losing weight. We want to make songs that tell a different story. Our goal with the songs on the new EP will be to teach you about things and people you don’t usually learn about. People like Grace Hopper: a computer scientist who basically invented the compiler and, according to legend, discovered the first computer bug (it was an actual bug.) Grace & other awesome people will be featured on this EP, if it's funded.

NEW: Dimetrodon Plush!
It's a little baby Dimetrodon plush!!!! This new, special, very exclusive, very cute plush was designed for this Kickstarter and will be individually made just for you by crafting genius Tally Heilke. The fleece Dimetrodon is approx. 17 inches long and soft and friendly. It may or may not eat sharks.
Dimetrodon and “Rawr, Velociraptor” KNITTED HATS! A local here in Portland, Cathy of Frivolite Handcrafts, has created a knitting design for “toque”-style hats with Dimetrodons and Velociraptors on them, and she will be making a set of them for this Kickstarter! You will be able to select size and style.

Risks and challenges
We feel confident in our ability to complete this project in our estimated timeline, but things like manufacturing delays, delays in completion of various moving parts, and health, weather, and raptor attacks could cause delays. Fortunately, the songs for the album are already on their way to album-ready, we have been thorough in researching every step of the manufacturing process, and we've done all of these things before without failing or running away: managing pre-orders for previous albums; weekly song songwriting challenges; album recording and production; international shipping. Thank you for donating and making the Doubleclicks possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
