A Kickstarter Post: Crate Digger: An Obsession with Punk Rock Records

 Ok, how could I not back a Kickstarter project called Crate Digger: An Obsession with Punk Rock Records?! And they're local to boot! Being a writer (and of course, lover of punk rock records) I felt there was no way I could pass up backing Microcosm Publishing in this quest.

This is what I love about punk rock in general. On the outside, punks seem so scary, unapproachable and mean. But I have found the exact opposite to be true. Looking back on the punk shows I've attended in the past, I recall people going out of their way to help others. Whether it be a strong arm 'help up' from inside the mosh pit, to a protective blocking stance when things got a little out of hand. And I'm talking about complete strangers here. I don't think you'd witness such camaraderie at a punk-poseur-wannabe show, do you?

There aren't many Kickstarter projects I have felt compelled to back (and let's face it, cash flow ain't always flowin) but I'm very glad I'm able to help get the word out about this one. But hurry, their project ends in just 4 days! So, at least check it out, will ya?
