My Famous Friends: Geoff Slays Commercial Music!

Mmmm... so steamy...

Mmmm… so steamy…

My excellently-talented friend (since kindergarten) Geoff is an excellently-talented musician. Until recently he was the bass-playing part of Julia Massey and the Five Finger Discount (he can be heard on all of the FFD albums released up to this date). He is also the singer and 1/2 of the composers (I’m the other 1/2) of The Crazy Boy Floyds. He also produced a bunch of Trevor Peach’s recent musics. And a bunches of other stuffs.

Now he’s written the musics for a commercial for Slayer Espresso’s new steam machine! Here’s what Geoffs says:

Hey guys! Not only is Slayer an awesome company that I have loved since it’s inception, but a while back Arthur Allen started working in their marketing department and asked if I’d be willing to make a little tune for the promos of their upcoming products. Of course I said yes! And of course Arthur has done amazing things with it! Thanks for the opportunity, man! I hope I get to work with you moooore!

Watch the ‘mercial here and wissen to da musics within!

Also, that looks like a pretty kick-ass machine. If only I thought coffee had a good flavor taste instead of tasting like burnt bits you’d scrape off the bottom of an oven!

Kick Some Hands: “The Gamers: Hands of Fate” Kickstarter

The Gamers: Hands of Fate

These Hands Need Kickin’

Those Dead Gentlemen folks, the people responsible for The Gamers: Dorkness Rising (starring my pals the Gibbs Brothers) and the JourneyQuest webseries (starring Fran Kranz of Dollhouse and Cabin in the Woods fame), want to make a sequel to Dorkness Rising.

They were extremely successful with a Kickstarter campaign to make the 2nd season of JourneyQuest, so they have a Kickstarter campaign going for this latest endeavor as well. And this one looks like it’s going to go down to the wire: they have one week left and still need to raise about $40,000.

This sequel to Dorkness Rising is called Hands of Fate, and is about a foray into the world of Collectible Card Games. I enjoy the Dead Gentlemen’s output quite a bit, so I put in a few dollars. So can you! You can learn more about this project in this Kickstarter video of theirs:

The Dead Gentlemen are going to PAX (which is happening right now) to drum up support, so I have a feeling there’s going to be a rather large spike in support this weekend, but still every little bit helps.
