Fantasy Kickstarter/GoFundMe Campaigns...

I love the idea of crowdfunding.

If I had any confidence that people would fund a Kickstarter of some kind, I'd set it up.

Daily I entertain fantasies about crowdfunding something I'd like to do. Not stuff I actually need to pay for, but for dumb, fun things I'd like to do.

Here are the TOP 5 crowdfunding fantasies I dream about at least 20 times a day.


I have several MisterSeth digital albums available, but they're not the best quality and people don't seem to have much interest in buying them unless I badger or beg them.

I tried to get a teacher creativity grant to make one, but the people in charge of handing those out didn't think I should, I guess.

If I started a crowdfunding campaign for a MisterSeth professionally recorded album... I wouldn't know where to start. I'm not sure how much I should ask for. I know I'd need to include the cost for studio rental, mastering, production, other stuff I don't know yet, and enough money to take time off from work to make the album.

I would offer donor perks like personalized songs, stickers, local concerts, etc.

This can extend to professional sethifus albums or an album of classic jazz standards Frank Sinatra/Michael Buble-style. I'd call it "Lower Your Standards".

2. Expensive Food Reviews!

I recently heard about the world's most expensive taco.

I love tacos and would love to eat this taco!

If I could figure out all the math for travel, hotels, the food itself, etc. I'd pick 5 or so items like this, figure out the goal amount, and gofundme it!

I'd travel to each place, film it, review each item for youtube, etc.

I love travel food shows.

I'd also like to do a show where I travel around to find places that still have Rockafire Explosion animatronic bands.


I wrote about this idea several years ago.

The gist is that I want to swim through coins like Scrooge McDuck.

I know this isn't possible, but I love the idea. I could swim through a ball pit of puffy fake coins though.

If big, puffy, plastic coins don't actually exist, I would have to hire a company to make them.

Donor perks could be things like if you donate $50 I'd send you one of the coins when I was all done with the money vault/ball pit. For $100 maybe a puffy gold bar (I'd have several different kinds of "currency" in the vault. See above pic). For $1000 you could come on over and have a quick dip in the coin ball pit yourself!

I love this idea, but don't know where I'd get a vault or how much it would cost to fill it with enough puffy coins that I could swim in it. I don't even know how much it would cost to have that many puffy coins, gold bricks, etc. made for such a thing.

Maybe if I presented the idea to Disney they'd help... they do have a new Ducktails coming out soon!


I've mentioned my Bucket List a time or two. It would be cool to raise the money to do such things.

Especially hugging the lovable, hug-able, furry Grover.

I'd really like to hug Grover...


This is the ultimate fundraising fantasy.

The general idea is that I would raise enough money to quit my job and never have to get another job.

Instead I would fund all of my creative endeavors.


  • writing: books, plays, short stories. Doesn't matter if they get published by professional outfits or just self publishing. 
  • music: everything listed above and more!
  • comics
  • etc?

That's pretty much it.

But I doubt enough people would want to give me money for such things.

Oh well. I'll just keep dreaming.

Single Rider! a new song

"Single Rider" is a song inspired by a recent trip to Disney World. I saw a lot of Single Rider Lines there, and that sounded really sad.

But I got the idea for the song from them!

I tried to make it sound a bit like Buddy Holly and other love songs about theme parks and rides and things like that.

I'm pretty happy with it.

I hope you love it.

MNT DEW - DEW-S-A: tasting it...

Tastes like... America...

So Mountain Dew is hopping on the patriotic bandwagon? I guess someone had to follow in Budweiser's footsteps.

Pumpkins 2017!

I mowed the lawn today.

And then I planted this year's pumpkin seeds!!!

I planted:

* A row of BIG PUMPKIN seeds! I think this is the closest I'll get to growing State Fair-Worthy Pumpkins.

* Two rows of decorative pumpkins. Some of them might be white!

* A row of seeds I saved from last year's pumpkins!

Hopefully some of them will sprout, vine, and produce pumpkins I can use this fall!

If you want one (when they're actually a grown reality), send me an e-mail at We might be able to work something out.

Guess what I woke up to yesterday!

Yep! Somebody hit my garage door with a car, drove away, and didn't leave a note or anything!

So I got to call off of work and sit at home all day waiting for insurance to call back and tell me we have a $1,000 deductible, the police to come and say there's pretty much no way to find who did it (meaning we have to pay for it), and the garage door repair/replacement technician to tell me the door can't be saved and it will cost well over $1,000 to replace!

They were all really nice about it.

Both cars were fine.

And we're fine, we can pay for it without too much financial hardship, but...


Again, we aren't going to have to eat ramen noodles for the next 6 months in order to pay for a new garage door or anything like that, but it does put a damper on a lot of things we were planning to do with $1,000.

If you want to help us out, thank you. We're honestly okay and don't donations, but if you want to buy something I've made it will help.  Here's a big list of all the places you can buy something I've made:

New Things...

I haven't been updating as much as I've been making stuff.


A new song with 11 vocal tracks!

It's called "Portistown"!

It's a mess!

A couple videos about PEZ candy! The first is all about eating it the wrong way, second is the Proper Way to load a PEZ dispenser.

Seriously. I sent it to PEZ and they agreed.

And finally "My Sweet Babboo" is a song I wrote in the voice of Sally Brown (from the Peanuts comic and cartoons) about her love for Linus Van Pelt.

Anybody wanna buy some music?

Or a shirt?

New Song and a Prestigious Playlist!

I wrote a new song!

It's about demos.

Those pictures are all me, back when I was the coolest I'll ever be.

Also, guys... I made a really great playlist!

Compiled by Frank "Dr. Frank" Portman himself!

This is a playlist of people covering Mr. T Experience songs, and I'm one of them!

That makes me feel pretty good.

And earlier in the week Chris Ballew shared my cover of his Caspar Babypants song "Silly Bird"!

Here's the video:

It's been a good couple weeks as far as people I admire sharing my covers of their songs goes.

It came! It came!

I've been longing for this doll since I was a little point-and-click adventure game enthusiast!

I love Sam and Max!

I love all the stuff Steve Purcell makes!

Unfortunately the doll is sold out.

But you could try your luck. CLICK HERE! MAYBE THEY'LL MAKE MORE!

Now I just need Sam and Max action figures... and a DeSoto for them to ride in...
