Here’s the page where you can report the project, even though it won’t do any good.
Here’s Kickstarter’s Twitter feed, to which you can send a message, which also won’t do any good.
Thanks for trying, though.
Edit: Does anyone know, if the reports came in before the project was finished, is there a chance it would still be shut down? I would imagine it would take a little while for kickstarter to evaluate the situation.
can someone please point out to me where this guy advises sexual assault?
I can’t find it on the page or in the video. I might’ve missed it.
It was on his reddit page; he temporarily removed it, because I think he realized it could be used to report him. There is a cached copy of it, though.
There’s still some of the more disgusting bits of “advice” linked in through the Kickstarter. If you look through the description where it reads…
Needless to say, I am honored. But I won’t harp on it anymore. You can read part 1,“Primer On Who You Will Become” for yourself if you like. If it resonates with you, please consider backing this project. If not, that’s fine! It’s not for everyone!
That link will take to excerpts from the book that’s being published, one section that reads 5) Flirting, Touch & Conversation which lists as one of the techniques to be learned as the…
Physical Push/Pull (Push/Pull with physical twist added. Example here.)
Warning to not read through the example unless you can handle reading encouraging accounts of physical and sexual assault. But yeah, those are the links I provided in my report to Kickstarter so if that’ll help any of y’all to do the same then please, go right on ahead.

whoa that’s rough :s
Haha, sad thing is though, I didn’t realize I was hungry until I had food in front of me, so I thought I was doing alright for the day! XD
I’ve eaten maybe three full meals since Wednesday.
Oh my gosh, are you alright? D: That’s so awful though, especially when it’s continuous!
Never mind that I just got out of work at freaking 10:18 st night but I just realized, I’m only about to have my second meal of the day… I mean, I snacked, but that was around… two in the afternoon maybe? Ahh I’m slowly destroying myself.
This week, we’re going to talk about Sondre Lerche, which I’m extremely excited about. SL has been one of my favorite songwriters for a long time, right up there with Brian Wilson, Taylor Swift, and Paddy McAloon (remember that last name, ‘cause we’re gonna talk about him more). Although he has a sizable fanbase, I still meet tons of people who have never heard of him or his music, so I’m very grateful for the opportunity to share this with so many people.
One Week//One Band is a really great project, and I’ve loved watching how writers approach their weeks so differently. It not only reflects the diversity among music writers today, but it also emphasizes the diversity among the artists that we talk about. Certain bands or artists lend themselves better to different approaches. Ari Lipsitz brilliantly focused on audience reaction (undying love or horrified disdain) towards Muse, which was a perfect way to talk about that band that might not work for other bands. And Vikram Murthi approached Modest Mouse from a deeply personal place, which, again, worked well for that band in ways it might not for others. So when I started thinking about what I was going to do with this week, I thought mainly about what kind of approach him and his music lends itself to most.
What has always interested me about SL as a songwriter is the way he wears his influences on his sleeve. It is easy to hear Burt Bacharach, Cole Porter, Elvis Costello, Prefab Sprout, XTC, Antonio Jobim, or The High Llamas coursing through his melodies and chord structures and he often talks about these influences as well as recording covers and tributes to the artists he loves. But it always ends up sounding distinctly like Sondre Lerche.
In that way, I decided that my One Week//One Band can’t simply be constrained to ‘One Band’. In order to effectively talk about Sondre Lerche, we’re going to need to talk about these other songwriters. So, this week, I will:
- Share my thoughts on how these artists have influenced SL’s music
- Discuss his use of style, differentiating between semiotic allusion and true musical influence
- Offering up a few harmonic and/or melodic analyses of some of his more interesting songs
- Sharing an interview I did with him recently just for One Week//One Band!
- Posting other miscellaneous pictures, videos, and tweets just for fun
So I’m sorry in advanced if I’m breaking the rules by sharing music by people other than Sondre Lerche, but I think if you stick with me on this, you’ll get some interesting things out of it! Or maybe you won’t, and you’ll hate everything I have to say, either way, I’m gonna have fun.
If you have any questions or thoughts or suggestions, send them my way!
Y’all should check this out!! Sondre Lerche is actually the best!
And on that note! I’m going to throw myself into drawing and catching up on Skype this weekend so I won’t be responding to tumblr messages until Monday! I seriously love y’all though!
Actually I’m going through them now this Sunday day and dangarang, I have messages from two weeks ago?? How does this even happen? Like how do I even miss these things that are just SITTING there?
I got the stuff!
I’m making a body pillow! 8D
Don’t post trains. Don’t post imagines of trains looking like they’re going to hit you. Don’t post people getitng hit by trains. Don’t post gore and guts on trains. Don’t post trains. Please don’t post trains.
I’ve probably been stalking Quinn’s blog for far too long actually.
Someone help me out.
Explain to me what Dangan Ronpa and Off (I know this one is a video game about an exorcist baseball player!?!) are. Apparently my Hiatus has made me a moron?
People are asking for cross-overs… but I don’t know these new fandoms ><;;
Oh no, you’re…
I’m pretty sure everything you just said is Greek to me, it’s a manga? Or is it a video game? Or is it… both? But, I read blood and Violence, so I’m pretty much game for this. Just gotta find the free time to wrap my head around this concept, I barely have time to sleep anymore. ;0;
Thank you for the explanation, it was a lot better than the universal ‘It’s awesome’ or ‘Don’t do it, it’s an addiction’ That I have been getting from other parties.
It’s a game!! A visual novel type of game where you talk to people and click around rooms to find clues to solve the murder mysteries that are abound! c:
Thing is, there aren’t any English versions of the game, so how people get through it is through translated Let’s Plays, where a person screencaps (or in some cases, takes videos of) the game as they progress through it! So reading through a Lets Play is sort of like reading through a weirdly formatted webcomic! (Which shouldn’t be too weird when you’re coming off of Homestuck, ha!)
But yeah, good luck if you do read it or not! It can be SERIOUSLY addicting though. The characters are amazing and the events in the story are… haha, they kinda hit you out of nowhere! :,)
