Impotent Nerd Rage – A Geek Comedy Album
I found this video the other day and I was amazed to say the least. I found out that the project has already been funded but there are tidbits on the kickstarter site that I wanted to point out. Also please watch the video below and if at least 1 of these songs doesn’t sound amazing to you; frankly I don’t know why your reading a blog called Get Geek. But hey everyones got to start somewhere.
First off my favorite song teaser was probably Me and Allan Moores Beard because I too have had an obsession with the aforementioned beard. And its ridiculous. I love ridiculous.
If you’re not familiear with kick starter: You put up a project and have people donate. Trying to get to a certain amount by a certain date. Normally there are different levels of sponsorship that get you different things. So like $20 gets you a physical copy. I just wanted to demonstrate the crazy things that Mikey Mason was willing to do.Keep in mind they are cumulative. So what you get at $20 you also get at $10,000.
For $50:(9 backers)
“In addition, I will scream the name of your favorite Firefly character out loud while in the throes of passion with my wife. I’ll have her write you a note to assure you that this happened.”
For $100:(8 backers)
Furthermore, I will call my 6 yr. old child by your name for 24 hours. I will send him to school in a shirt that reads, “My daddy leased the rights to my name in order to secure backing for an album. Today my name is:__________.”
I can’t imagine how crazy this kids life will be, and what is friends think…
For $250:(2 backers)
I will write a song based on a title or concept you propose
This is just legitimately awesome.
For $500:(1 backer)
I will write a song based on a title or concept you propose. Further, I will write a fanfiction story featuring YOU based in your favorite pre-established fictional universe. It will be at least 5 pages long, typed, double spaced, in 12 point font. My degree was in creative writing. This will not be *bad* fanfiction. This will likely be *atrocious* fanfiction. But it will probably be pretty funny, too.
This is pretty awesome too, although I would have no idea what I would have it set in.
For $1000: All the fiction and song as well.(0 backers)
If you live within an 8 hour drive of Indianapolis, I will come watch your favorite movie with you or I’ll do a personal show at your house, for you and anyone else you invite. If I like you enough, I’ll do both.
This is crazy but I imagine that not many people live within 8 hours of him.
Furthermore, I’ll shave my goatee and send it to you via registered mail.
This is when you know he was getting a little crazy and thinking that no one would do it.He was right so.

Finally, you may choose one (1) from the following options: I will legally change my name to Boba Fett or Captain Tightpants–your choice. (Seriously. I will do this.) OR I will travel anywhere in the continental US to perform a personal show at your home, after which we can play role-playing games. I’ll even GM if you like (must be a system I’m familiar with.) I’ll also probably bring some craft beer that is not available in your area…
This is amazing. If you don’t think this is amazing something is wrong with you. I love the fact that he basically just says and we can play RPG’s too you know as an aside. Hope this brought as much fun to your day as it did mine.
