I Think I'm a Sofa

Sometimes I make things. Most of the time I look at things other people make and wonder why I can't make things like that.

Largely a Marvel blog, but I post other things, too.

If you are here, you are likely to see lots of fandoms, fangirling, and insanity. My apologies in advance.

Paul Brokovich (Michael Malkiewicz) is an English teacher by day and a stand up comedian by night. Unfortunately Paul’s interest in becoming a recognized comic greatly outweighs his desire to educate the struggling students of his summer school class at Parkins’ Regional High. His indecisiveness to stick to one career path leads Paul to no longer view his classroom as a place of learning, but a crowd to test potential stage material. As a result, Paul’s job as a teacher falls into jeopardy and it’s up to him to pick up the pieces before facing unemployment and isolation from his family and friends. Practice Makes Perfect also stars Jayme Karales, Alex Hand, Ken Dereste Dorcely, Levar Burton, and Jack Viera as the voice of radio personality Billy Beantown.

Practice Makes Perfect is based on the upcoming ThatLitPress novella of the same name, written by Jayme Karales—the film’s screenwriter and director. Karales’ first novel Disorderly was published in 2013 by Before Sunrise Press and his second novel Clever Animals will be released later this year. 

Karales, along with Executive Producer Joel Amat Güell, formed UnHollywood Films—a two man production company for independent cinema. Practice Makes Perfect will be the first film released under the UnHollywood banner.  

Only one month ago the cast and crew met and shot a significant portion of the movie, which was funded out of pocket by the crew. However due to budget and time restrictions we didn’t complete filming in its entirety and had to miss out on shooting a number of crucial scenes. We thought it would be better to resume filming when we could put forth the proper funds to shoot the scenes, rather than rush and cheapen what was left and have the film come out half-baked. Unfortunately, without this Kickstarter, that may take a very long time. So we’re looking to the public to help fund these crucial portions of the film and the movie’s post-production. 

With your help we’ll be able to finance the following:

  • location rentals (booking a school for multiple days of filming does not come cheap—nor do bars or cafes)
  • production insurance
  • props and set decoration
  • lighting equipment rental
  • sound, and audio mastering
  • transportation to Boston, MA., Atlantic City, NJ, and Philadelphia, PA. (the filming locations)
  • post production
  • DVDs, Blu-Rays, and other rewards
  • and more

Funding Practice Makes Perfect not only means helping a movie meet its completion, but jump starting UnHollywood Films and its future as a leading provider of independent film. 

For a limited time only, pledging at least a minimum of $5.00 can earn you unique rewards like:

  • a copy of the film on DVD or HD Digital
  • a Producer / Executive Producer credit
  • tickets to the premiere
  • signed merchandise and film props
  • a speaking role in the film
  • your company/brand’s commercial filmed by the director and cast
  • an advanced copy of the upcoming novella which the film is based on
  • having your script written by the film’s screenwriter
  • a visit to the set
  • naming a character after yourself or a loved one
  • receiving writing criticism/advice from a novelist
  • and more

Pledge now and claim the rewards while they last.

Folks, I’m sure you already know but I have a Kickstarter campaign currently active to finance the rest of shooting on my directorial debut Practice Makes Perfect. The movie stars malkiewicz, Kenney Dorcely, Alex Hand, caseyanthonyofficial, Levar Burton of Star…

So here’s the thing.
I need oral surgery, badly. I have needed it for years, but in the past six months, the teeth have just gotten worse, and the pain is worse and more frequent.
The estimate for the cost of all services to be rendered is over two thousand dollars, even with the insurance plan I was able to purchase last year. We don’t have a lot of money, and things keep happening. My mom just had major surgery a month ago. She can’t even sleep in her bed yet, she’s having to sleep in a recliner, and that’s costing us, too.
Long story short, I need surgery badly and I could really use some help. I never wanted to make this post, but I’m pretty desperate. 
If you can, please consider sparing a few dollars. I have a donation button on my blog, or you can donate here. Signal boosts are always appreciated.

So as soon as I heard that Welcome to Night Vale was going to be performing in Milwaukee this July, I jumped on the computer to buy myself tickets because even though I actually live in Madison, I knew that this would probably the only chance I’ll have to see them anytime soon. 

It’s only an hour-long commute from Madison to Milwaukee, so you’d think that it’d be fairly easy for me to get there and back — except I don’t have a car. Lucky for me, I found out that the Greyhound Bus can get me from one city to the other in almost no-time, so getting there won’t be a problem. What is a problem is figuring out how to get back to Madison.

The Greyhound buses all stop running after 6-7PM, and many of the inter-state commuting options either are too far for me to get to or aren’t offering their services after a certain time (for example, if I were to leave the theater and take a taxi to the nearest BadgerBus station, it would take 47 minutes, minimum.). I’ve looked at all possible options, including the ones listed here, and sadly none of them are applicable to my situation.

If worse comes to worst, I could check into a cheap hotel until morning, but I would really prefer not to spend the night there because I have work and school the next morning. So basically, if I can’t figure out a way to get back after the show is over I might have to cancel my plans.

If there is anyone else in Madison who’s planning on going to WTNV’s July show in Milwaukee, I would greatly appreciate it if you would consider giving me a ride back into Madison after the show ends. I live on the West side, if that helps at all, and I would definitely be willing to reimburse you for gas money.

Alternatively, if there is anyone in Madison who would like to go to WTNV’s July show in Milwaukee but doesn’t want to spend money on tickets/doesn’t want to go alone/insert-another-reason-here, I am offering to buy you a ticket to the show in exchange for a ride back into Madison once it ends. I can’t promise that our seats will be next to each other because of the large time-gap between each purchase, but we can definitely discuss it afterwards.

  • Please note that I am not asking you to drive me allllllll the way home. I just need to get into Madison; After that, I can use the local taxi service (or a bus if it’s early enough) to get me where I need to be.
  • I hate to have to specify this, because I’m sure that it’s not even a topic of concern, but this ad is purely a platonic one. I’m not asking for a date, and I’m not offering anything other than gratitude and monetary reimbursement in exchange for driving me home. 
  • If you are interested and willing to help me, let me know and we can hammer out the details through email or tumblr message. Tumblr is kind of finicky with it’s messaging system, so if you aren’t sure if I’ve seen something, feel free to reblog this post with a little comment.

If would mean so much to me if I could get as many people to reblog this as possible. To my followers out there, I’m sorry, but please please reblog this from me. The show is on the 14th, so time is ticking. Even if you’re not going to the show, or you can’t spare any extra room, reblogging this would be such a big help. I just need as many people as possible to see it.

Okay, that’s all. As Cecil says, “I am not a good salesman.”

give this a signal boost, please reblog even if you cannot personally help.

this person needs a ride from the WTNV live show in Milwaukee to Madison. Help a fellow Night Vale fan out! 

Because there are different sizes to infinity, and helping strangers to a beautiful and horrowing trip to Nightvale is one of them.

This is how me and my family are living these months.

My mom has a great job but doesn’t make enough to support all five of us. She’s working extra hours but it isn’t enough and with school starting for my brothers and them needing over priced uniforms, we’ve all reached the end of our rope.

On top of this, my mom also has diabetes and sometimes has trouble getting the money for her medication. And as people who have/are dealing with this kind of disease you know that everything is so much more harder for her. When she gets a paper cut it can last a month and when she gets caught in the rain, she is guaranteed to get sick and as she says so many times “[she] cannot afford to get sick”.

Right now we are trying to move from this house into a smaller, more affordable one but the chances of that happening anytime soon are dwindling. In addition to this, my mom wants to visit our sick grandfather in New York who has multiple myeloma. If anyone who has heard of this would know that it affects your organs and there is no cure for it. We are all hoping for one last visit before he passes on.

I’m asking that you please help us. I don’t like this life for my brothers who have to wonder if it was okay that they are ramen for breakfast or that my mother can’t see her father one last time. Anything and everything you donate will be used to help my brothers and mother have an easier more enjoyable life.

I have set up a fundraiser and a paypal on my blog. Again, anything and everything you can spare will be much appreciated and if you cannot donate, please share this so that it gets around.

SIGNAL BOOST THIS PLEASE

can a couple people donate a couple dollars to me and my family? We’re losing our home and quite possibly all of our possessions because we’ll have nowhere to put them. That’s all I’m asking…

Hey all! The Kickstarter for my dad’s story Raising Sleeping Stones only has about $2.5k left of its goal to meet, and that’s awesome!

What’s less awesome is there are only 5 DAYS LEFT for it to get funded.

Gonna make a separate post about this because I keep seeing the post:

The photo set of the Indian man who transforms into a leaf or Canada Day is a known sexual predator named Josh Macedo who has since deleted his blog after multiple people came out and described the predatory behavior they experienced with him. Stop reblogging that post.

pls give me a franchise where, when a good female character turns evil, she is not immediately dressed in a bondage-inspired outfit that is 2 strips of leather and a thong and instead dresses in sensible jeans and combat boots and a comfy jacket because hello, evil agenda here, there’s no time to be objectified, world domination is priority

"Come to the Dark Side, we have pockets and sensible footwear."

Pockets you say?

IM IN

Hello, I believe this may be what you’re looking for.

This is Willow Rosenberg. She’s kind of a badass and turns dark for a spell in Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Six. She at no point dresses in scantily clad clothing. Everyone should watch Buffy for this reason and more. This has been a PSA.
