... so my plan was that I'd work this weekend, finishing up the Top Sekret Projekt w/ Neil & Amanda and then today I'd un-sekret the new Projekt, which involves bringing Moxie McCmurder the editor of the UK roller derby magazine Lead Jammer to the U.S. to tag along while I finish up this leg of my roller derby portrait project. I'd been plotting this with the Fabulous Lorraine from the Chippewa Valley Roller Girls for a few weeks now. I figured I'd launch a kickstarter quietly towards the end of last week then have a grand opening here on the blog today, but a funny thing happened on the way to the forum -- about 17 hours after I launched the kickstarter, it was fully funded. People just rolled out of the woodwork with derby love.
That doesn't mean though that there's no reason to participate -- there are a bunch of well priced rewards and any extra money that comes out of this will go into another roller derby trip and gets me that much closer to a book.
Do have a look at the video -- it's got a bunch of the portraits in it. This might be just the time to snag a 4x6 print to hang in your hallway -- you know, the hallway on the way to the bathroom where there's that blank spot right now.
All this makes me happy and it also reinforces that this is something worth doing.

I think someone needs to re-shoot Kier Dulla's last scene in 2001 now that he's really 80 and splice it in.
You know you HAVE to come visit Columbia, SC and take shots of the Columbia Quad Squad. They are the newest upstarts on the National scene and they are turning heads.
Oh...and a pic or two of their MVP Holly Hunter is a must.
If you need someone to help haul equipment once you get here, hit me up.
I may -- at the moment i haven't figured how i'm getting from the airport to wherever i'm supposed to be for the first shoot and how that first shoot is happening.
I should clarify that I don't own a car. I might be able to borrow one with a little notice, though.
When you have more dates/times, I can start looking into whatever you might need also!
A long-awaited check is here, and I am SO putting $ in for your kickstarter! Thanks for structuring it so the less-wealthy can come out with a li'l something for that hallway wall!
