You need balls.

Not literally, but figuratively - in every way.  

I may not be a dude - but I have balls.  And with these balls, I plan to make an EP.  There are a few things I've learned this time around:

1.  99% of us are in the 99 percentile.  Meaning...we're not "shut the front door" loaded.  So keep the goal reasonable (unless you know anyone in the 1%...point them my way!  I, sadly, do not know anyone of the sorts)

2.  Think like a 5 year old:  Admit it.  We've all got short attention spans.  Not because we don't have the capacity - but mostly because we've got lots on our plates.  Instead of an album - I plan to do a series of EP's.  Kinda like a Twilight book series - but without the melodramatic century-old tweens who lack Vitamin D.  This EP will be Numero Uno.

3.  Give it time.  Like a great wine - I will give this Kickstarter project the time to mature.  31 days to be exact.  Because some of us are "mature" - and by mature I mean forgetful.

So I figured an EP will cost me $4,000 - I'll put up $2,000...and I'm hoping y'all will kick me the other half.  Check out the vidvid - it'll explain all of the deets.  

On your mark, get set...KICKSTART!
