Two parents, one of whom unironically describes himself as an “thinker, disruptor, innovator, dad,” have launched a rather soulless Indiegogo campaign to cater to the whims of their 6-year-old daughter, seeking to “Get greedy Elmo & others OUT of Times Square!” The idea came from little Kamila, who got sad that Minnie Mouse or Elmo […]

Despite substantial outrage, the “anti-rape wear” lingerie Indiegogo campaign for $50,000 has been funded.

In AdverturOS, a forthcoming game currently funding on Indiegogo, you literally play through your own hard drive. What does that mean? Folders become rooms, files become treasures, enemies, and other non-player characters. The further you play through the game, the deeper you travel into your drive’s file tree structure. That is to say, level one will be […]

You know photographer Nate “Igor” Smith from his blog Driven By Boredom. He says he’s been lucky to make a living shooting the streets, the parties, the babes, the craziness, and New York’s not-too-subtle definitive moments — but what he would like do now is to make you The Great American Road Trip Zine. To celebrate his […]
