This man is fucking outrageous

The response to these outrageous offers has been overwhelming. Over one third of the funding target was achieved in under one week, which delighted the ex-Killing Joke percussionist as an affirmation of the DIY spirit.

Was I surprised? Yes, very, it’s frightening and cool as fuck to be exposed like this. Punk, really. REALLY! I tell people all the time that this is a time to remove the protective cup from your pants and open up your arms and stop cupping your hands to protect (whatever you have in your) crotch and to hand someone a hammer. Even though your rational brain is going to kick in and think you can outsmart this by giving people a tint hammer that will shatter as soon as it hits your crotch, what you need to give people is the biggest sledge hammer ever – then, relax and close your eyes.

I’m surprised by the amount of work this is – not work work, but responsibility that I didn’t expect – updating the backers privately / individually and blogging just for them … and tweaking different things too.

Who is editing in all the “fuck’s”?

The fucks will be edited at the end of this … now we added a 72pt font fuck too!

Are you fucking exhausted?

Yes, a little – it’s Mothers Day here today, I DJ’d at Threadless last night at a benefit for Arcade Brewery’s Kickstarter – you have to give to get … I’m heading up to Eahle River Wi on Tuesday – my students have been involved in a big event up there, so I’m anxious about my email connection and helping to run all of that and DJing again too …

I’m blogging myself a little too – trying to document all of this for a Kickstarter class – I know a lot of artists are thinking right now, fuck all of this hard work shit – I’ll start a Kickstarter – well, it’s as helpful as a random show at Madison Square Garden – if you don’t have the audience to fill it – or the machinery to drive it – then it’s going to be a catastrophe.

With such a hectic schedule, you would think that Atkins would kick back and relax after his Kickstarter shenanigans, but no.

After Band:Smart is published, then a bunch of speaking – USA, Australia and South America along with a trip to the UK – then I can finish up my PiL book and my event management book! I have to start drumming again, too. My brain and my body needs it.
