Devo Spice Update - 12/2011: Kickstart My Video Game!
From Devo Spice.
Rollers is a new video game I plan to develop for iPhone/iPod that will play like a combination of Super Mario Bros and Pac-Man. If you didn't know I have designed, programmed, and released several video games in the past and I want to get back into it.
In this game you will guide an alien creature who can roll himself up into a ball through a series of underground caverns to destroy the crystals which are poisoning the atmosphere. Avoid the enemies, collect items, rescue other creatures, and clear all the crystals before the air in your environment suit runs out.
I am looking to raise $5000 to fund the development of the game and you can help. I have started a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds. The way this works is you pledge however much money you want. I have rewards set up at various levels so you can get some cool stuff like early access to the game, or collectible items from the game itself, but you can donate any amount you want. If I reach my goal your credit card will be charged for the amount you pledged. If I don't reach my goal your card will not be charged.
Please take a look at the Kickstarter page where you can read more details on how the game will play, the back story behind the game, all the rewards I have set up, and watch a video where I explain it all.

Mr ShaoDow, the Shaolin Kung Fu trained DiY Rapper brings you a new track to jam to. Before the release of his next official single ShaoDow will be putting out a number of tracks and videos for the people to enjoy. 'Ignant' is a high energy, fast paced song with an infectiously unique instrumental made by Kid Kong. Maintaining his trademark intelligent yet intricate style of lyricism ShaoDow raps about the difficulties of keeping cool around infuriating people.
The music video filmed by Black Budget Entertainment has Shao rapping whilst simultaneously showing off his skill with Nunchaku (the weapons made famous by Bruce Lee). ShaoDow is currently travelling the entire UK selling his CDs and meeting his fans directly. He has now sold over 7,000 copies singlehandedly.

"First we headed over to Newark to see Young Zee. He showed us around the space where he's building his new studio and then I filmed a quick drop of him on my phone. After that Sam dragged me to the Chiller Theater. I didn't want to go but I'm glad I did because it was one of the weirdest and most magical places I'd ever been. -Green
Video: Georgia Anne Muldrow Ft. Bilal - "More & More"
From Audible Treats.
With the recent release of her album, Owed To Mama Rickie, Georgia Anne Muldrow provides her fans with a visual for "More & More" featuring Philadelphia singer-songwriter Bilal, a song from the album produced by none other than Georgia herself.
The video, directed by Brian Deka Paupaw, features collages of color with smiling faces and heartfelt images of affection. Based on the concept of loving one-self, "More & More" is an ode to finding the inner-beauty inside of our selves and each other, no matter what the circumstances. Encouraging and inspirational all at the same time, Georgia convincingly sings "You'll only be a slave if you choose to live that way," reminding us that our attitudes in life are simply up to us, whether positive or negative.
Receiving rave reviews from OkayPlayer, SoulTracks and more, Owed To Mama Rickie is an instant attention grabber. With the release of the video for "More & More," Georgia visually reiterates the message of the song and her approach to the touching music that she creates; it's all about love.
