Nutbag Nicky and Tabetha Jones (Hoover, Henley, Willis, Saulters, Olejnick, whatever) have teamed up to create a Kickstarter project to fund their collaboration on the Sinister Souls anthology. There’s a video of Nicky blithering incoherently on that page. So I must hereby absolve myself of any IQ points you lose, should you choose to watch it.
They’re looking to take in a goal of $4,300.00 . As of right now, they have zero pledged by zero people.
Just for giggles (or guffaws, if you’re as amused as I am), let’s look at what they’re asking for, why, and what they’re promising as rewards for anybody who donates.
First and foremost, it bears note that Nicky wrote the project up, and he’s nearly as illiterate as Tabetha, and a whole legion more insane. So reading the proposal is an adventure in and of itself. It’s disjointed, at best, and rambles on and on about everything from taking stabs and the people he hates to what a whiz he is with pencil and paper.
What they’re asking for ranges from art supplies so he can hand-draw the book cover to – well, that’s about the only physical thing he lists on the page. Mostly, he tries to align himself with people that have never heard of him by using their names, from Dio, to Alice Cooper to Rod Serling, and more.
Rewards range from him recommending movies he likes on Amazon, to a hot dog date with himself. For $90 bucks or more, you get to “prank” some poor guy. So, basically, you’re paying Nicky for the honor of committing a crime. What fun. Suffice it to say that nothing he’s asking for or promises in return makes any sense whatsoever.
I could go on and on about Nutbag, but instead, I’ll throw it over to The Rusty Nail’s post on the Kickstarter subject. They’re more well-versed with Nicky and his extreme oddities over there. While you’re there, be sure to read the latest post about him as well, where he’s trying to get people to buy him socks and underwear through a wish list on Amazon.
The purpose of this post is to detail Tabetha’s involvement.
Even though Nicky claims that he’s running the project at Tabetha’s behest, and drops her name a LOT, it looks like he’s doing the whole thing. He’s got his city slotted as the location for the project, and he’s the one accepting submissions, creating the cover, and doing the publishing. So it looks like it’s all Nicky, right?
Tabetha could, if she wanted, blink innocently and say that she knew nothing about this whole thing. Honest!
The reward for a donation of $300 or more is that you get a phone call from none other than herself. AND, you get to meet and hang out with her.
Probably at her favorite strip club. And I’m pretty sure you’ll have to pay for everything, on top of the $300 you paid for the privilege in the first place.
Enjoy, folks. I know I’m going to.
