At first I didn’t want to do a Kickstarter campaign for the Moment of Clarity Show. I didn’t like the idea of asking fans and supporters to give me money. And even though I knew that almost none of the money would ultimately go in my pocket (even if we stay on budget, I’ll end up making $300 for every month of work), it still felt like I would be begging for money. Two things changed my mind. One was hearing an author who had a successful Kickstarter say, “Very few people give to a Kickstarter ONLY to support the project. Most of them also do it for the rewards they get.” And this actually made me feel much better about it. Basically I’m selling you a product – both the MOC shows you will end up getting AND the rewards, such as my books, CDs, trips to NYC, etc. But the real reason I changed my opinion on Kickstarter was because I never wanted the MOC show to be funded by corporate America. I always wanted it to be funded by you and for you. I’m not saying Moment of Clarity could never be on TV. For example, if HBO came to me and offered to give me my own show where I can say whatever the fuck I want, I would jump at the chance. But that’s not going to happen anytime soon, and besides, I would be thrilled to have a show that couldn’t have existed without YOU. I fucking hate commercials. I hate corporate bullshit shoved down our throats endlessly. And Kickstarter is just about the only way I can have this show without being corporate America’s lady boy.
So I hope you’ll come along with me on this journey and help me make this happen. If you truly don’t have the funds right now to support the project, then I understand. I hope you’ll support us by telling everyone you know. Let’s do this. Let’s make a show that corporate America will hate!
