Busy day ‘round here as I’ve officially launched my new company!
What started as a pipe dream a few months ago has now become a reality. I’ve always loved events and social media and am SO excited to start running my own social media consulting and event design firm.
Next up: securing a full list of clients ;)
In the meantime, I won’t be offended if you decide spread the news!
Picnics, fests, food, beer - our picks for the 20 things to do in Chicago this summer.
Dear Tumblr friends,
The fine folks that have been following me and those I follow (and well, even the folks that fall into neither category) are ladies and gents that happen to be witty, intelligent, and general purveyors of all things awesome. I submit for your approval something I hope to add to your collection of awesome artifacts and worth while endeavors.
After nearly a decade of working together on short films and commercials, we’re making our first feature length comedy, The Origins of Wit & Humor, and we need your help! There’s ton more information on our Kickstarter page but the long and short of it is, you’ve been a community of people I enjoy keeping up with and that consistently bring a smile to my face. Be it in a scroll, a like, a reblog, etc, you guys are on my radar daily.
If you like the project, myself, the rewards, or just simply want to let a couple of creative dudes continue their dream please consider a donation. If you would give us a reblog I would be extremely grateful.
Thanks so much,
Some quick info to whet your appetite:
WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
A comedy writer trying to figure out if he has anything to say if he’s not trying to get a laugh. Can he let sincerity bleed over the reflex to joke and gain approval? We keep that deeper theme light and interesting with a dash of magical realism and array of eccentric characters. Want to find out more and check out a teaser trailer for the film? Check out the video above.
WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?
A plethora of awesome prizes, rewards, and thank you gifts. Limited Edition Tshirts, art prints, digital goods, and a whole lot more. Not to mention we have several unique gift levels that allow to you collaborate with us on the making of the film. For example, you can vote on props, costumes, etc to see what makes the final cut. Get your art on screen to dress our sets. Name a character. Even get a speaking role. Again, find out more on the kickstarter page.
Chicago Filmmakers making a Chicago film. Hope you can check it out and donate/spread the word if you dig it. Please and thank you!

“ Of course, as Gapers Block rightly notes, Shteir predicted that Rahm Emanuel would never be elected mayor “because the city won’t elect a Jew,” so I’m not putting much weight in this tripe that the fast-asleep editors of the Review let slip through.
Rachel, it’s not Chicago that’s hopeless, it’s you. Please leave, and make a little room for the great people of Chicago and its visitors who know how to appreciate what a wonderful place we’ve built. ”
