Regular readers know that we rarely showcase crowdfunded projects, but this one is worth your attention. Greg Christie is a writer for Twitch, best known for his Boozie Movie Reviews and his insanely ambitious film festival reports that consistently devolve into depraved, sci-fi tinged adventures, the last thing you would expect to find on a movie news/reviews site. I recommend starting here with Part One of the four-part Fear & Loathing at the Philadelphia Film Festival 2012. You’ll find that he tends to involve real-life film-related individuals in his reports, individuals that people outside of Philadelphia would likely never hear of otherwise, thus airing local grievances on an international level for the sake of fairness and nobility. Though I’m sure he’d phrase it as something like “I’m just calling them out on their bullshit.”
So Greg is looking to publish his first novel, here’s the opening description of it from his Indiegogo page:
It’s 380 pages of hard boiled film festival journalism with a healthy serving of illustrated comic book action & psychedelic erotica.
Pissing in the Punch Bowl is also my first novel. It has elements of science fiction and horror. Somehow, it’s even an autobiography about my life on the road and in the film world. But don’t worry, it’s definitely not a memoir.
Well, I’m sold. Check out the page for further details, illustrations, and, of course, incentives:
