Aaaand that’s a wrap on our Kickstarter.

We have had an educational and enjoyable month navigating the world of Kickstarter, but ultimately our efforts have come up short. It happens! ‘Tis better to have Kickstarted and lost, etc.

This is BY NO MEANS the end of A Drink With Dave, though; in the last month, several people have proposed some interesting ways to proceed, and now we’re going to hunker down and decide which path to take. 

But before any of that, we would like to THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts. You know how when people say they’re humbled by an award nomination or whatever, and you say Oh, shut your hole? Well, we’re here to tell you that they may not all be fronting. That anyone would give us a theoretical dollar was a serious honor, so watching the donor list grow and grow- especially in the groundswell of the last couple of days- took our breath away. The amount of support we have gotten, both theoretical-financially and amplification-wise, made us all seriously emotional, and strengthened our resolve to make you guys a great product, by hook or by crook. When we started this thing out, we hoped the right people would get it, and you showed us that you did. 

Back- joyfully and with the wind at our back- to the drawing board! 

I met Tom Cruise once, when I interviewed him for something or another. You know how you think you know what “charisma” means? You don’t, until you are in his presence. He just FILLS a room. It’s crazy. He looks right in your eyes, he laughs at your jokes, he makes you think “Wait, am I FRIENDS with TOM CRUISE?” And then he is gone in a puff of smoke, to dazzle a new room.

re: Anderson & Frank Ocean: it’s a great thing, it’s about damn time AND it’s nobody’s damn business. When I came out to my family, a line I repeated often was: “I have to make this a big deal for the next few weeks so that it can be NOT a big deal for the rest of our lives.” And I think our whole culture is going through that big deal time right now; people have to come out and have to talk about their experiences so that we can all collectively get the f over it. In a couple of years, the whole concept of “coming out” is going to start to seem like a relic. I hope.
