  • Comments Off on Smart Razor Blade Cleaner Sharpener Razorbooster On Indiegogo

If there has been one thing on my mind this past year it’s cleanliness. Before the pandemic, I have to admit, cleanliness was not one of the top things on mind. There are things I think about now that I didn’t ponder at all pre-pandemic. For example opening up a door at post office or picking up a quarter off the street. So if I wasn’t thinking of these previous things I was definitely not thinking about a razor blade cleaning system. Not only does this unique Indiegogo device clean one’s bade (Water doesn’t fully do this btw) it will always keep your blades extra sharp.

If this is something you’d be intereted in definitely check out the $43 Razorbooster on Indiegogo:

Have you ever tried to clean a blade and keep it sharp? It’s not a fun activity. That’s the reason by Razorbooster a Mystique Life Inc. creation was developed. Actually, I’d rather clean the kitchen and wash the dishes than clean and sharpen my shaver. The company has been featured on many news outlets including Benzinga, Fox 43 TN, Spoke, and Erie News Now. Seems people are interested in this product.

How Does It Work?

OK, before I explain the magic of this blade system I would like my blog audience to know it’s easy and it works. All you have to do is run the blade over a specifically designed rubber brush that functions by an electronic motor. The electric motor which clean and brushes 600times per second. The proprietary sanitizing liquid eliminates 99% of bacteria and viruses, according to the company, keeping the blade sanitized. This effectively reduces the annoying nicks, cuts and skin infections.

The Process

1) Apply sterilization abrasive liquid
2) Turn on the device, place the blade on the rotating rubber blades for 3 seconds
3) Rinse both razorblade and Razorbooster with tap water

If you want to see something cool go to the Indiegogo site and check out the blade before and after pictures. Those pictures tell the whole story.

How Do I Get This Product?

Right now get the Razorbooster cleaner and sharpener on Indiegogo for only $43. This is a early bird special only so get in on the ground floor before they are gone.

Conclusion

Lately on Cash Sherpa I’ve been connecting a lot of posts with the current pandemic. I know you probably have pandemic fatigue by now, but I think it’s changed the way I’ve looked at the world. I mean it really showed me how fragile society is and how we can’t take anything for granite, for example, we have to support artists/musicians (Many have been featured on this blog). In addition to supporting the things we love so that they stick around, it also makes me think about cleanliness. With the Razorbooster system you’ll not only ensure your blades are sterile, but extend the life of the blades sharpness. You won’t have to order online, waste as much packaging, go to the store, or spend as much money. You’ll always get your best shave with the Razorbooster, for these reasons consider supporting their Indiegogo today.

  • Comments Off on Looking For The Ultimate Adventure Journal? Check Out The Camping and Travel Logbook On Kickstarter

One of my favorite things to do is to travel or going on short adventures around my city. There are even studies that show travel and camping can help with depression. I know after going through a year of pandemic lock downs how important it is for one’s mental health to get out of the house. I also happen to be a daily journaling practitioner. For these reasons when I heard about a journal specifically made for travelers and adventurers I knew I had to feature it on my blog. This is such a great idea! The company, Scrapbook Trails, tag line is “Every Adventure Should Be Remembered.” Make this slogan a reality and support Nick (The Founder) on Kickstarter today.

The Ultimate Adventure Journal

Human beings weren’t simply were’t made to stay inside all day and stare at a screen, working the day away. We weren’t simply to strive for inbox zero, winning the e-mail whack and mole game. When I’m on vacation I often take notes in a journal. New ideas often come to mind and I write them down. A journal specifically designed to take on travel adventures and camping trips is pure genius. It’s not simply writing random thoughts down on page, the journal guides you with a series of writing prompts. The journal was created by Nick of Scrapbook Trails which was founded by true adventurers. It shows with their thoughtful approach to this journal. The ultimate goal of this journal is to write down all the wonderful experiences you’ll have while traveling and time spent in nature. You’ll be able to enjoy these memories for years to come. I think travel puts you in a different mindset so your normal day to day journal will read much differently than a travel journal. This Camping and Travel Logbook will inspire you to continuing traveling and exploring nature further. It gives you a keepsake after every outing you undertake.

Sometimes I don’t always write down the experiences I have while traveling. This journal will change that. All your adventures will be remembered. Not just in photos with your cell phone, but now you will remember your thoughts and feelings. I’m definitely going to put in an order for this journal when it comes out.

More About The Journal

“This journal is absolutely perfect for experienced campers, new adventures, RV or Van lifers, or anyone who loves to be organized with their camping adventure experiences.” The founder of the journal from Scrapbook Trails has a love for camping and travel. He began to notice that he’d experience amazing memories, but months later they become a bit foggier. He knew there must be some way to document one’s travel experiences other than the traditional methods.

“This journal features space for 25 adventure entries along with a DIY table of contents for proper organization. In each journal entry section, you will find a detailed checklist, thought-provoking and deep journal prompts, free form journaling pages, and a page for photos or artwork. This journal also comes complete with a beautiful matte hardcover design, Scrapbook Trails Trip Tips, an outlined map of the United States, 20 tearable ruled scratch pages, a bookmark string, an elastic book band, and a convenient folder pocket in the back.” A big selling feature of this journal is that it’s Eco friendly. The 120gsm thick paper is made wood free and all material for the book are purchased through Eco-friendly suppliers.

Journal Sections include:

– Checklists
– Journaling
– Photos and Artwork
– Extra including a pocket, bookmark string, and elastic band.

Journal Facts:

– Made in the USA
– Hardcover
– Trip tips
– DIY Table Of Contents
– Space for 25 journal entries (25 Trips!)
– Camp and trip prompts
– Adventure reflection prompts
– Nature facts
– Photo and artwork page
– Size 6×9 inches

What Are The Rewards?

Yes, I’m happy to report there are lots of great rewards or just donate because you believe in the company or product. $5 donates to the cause. $20 gets you a PDF of the journal, sticker, and name in credits. The reward that I think most people should go for is the $40 level because this gets you a copy of the actual physical journal. The top reward at the time of writing is $450 and this gets you all the rewards mentioned above plus T-Shirts and personal thank you note.

Conclusion

The prototype of the journal has already been produced, it’s ready to go. The Ultimate Adventure Journal is waiting to be ordered and will be ready to be shipped to backers and customers 3 weeks after the Kickstarter has ended. Nick on his Kickstarter has been working constantly over the past few months. Help make Nick of Scrapbook Trails dream a reality support and pick up the Ultimate Adventure Journal today.

Musician Evan Ballard’s New Album On Patreon

  • Comments Off on Musician Evan Ballard’s New Album On Patreon

Musician Evan Ballard is creating a new album and needs your help on Patreon in order to see his project through. If there is one group of people that have suffered the most during the Covid lockdowns it’s musicians. Evan Ballard is not only a musician, but also a father and husband. In addition to dealing with all issues of 2020 and continuing into 2021, taking care of his family, he is also dealing with bipolar disorder. Ballard has been creating music all the way back to his teenage years, but due to bipolar disorder has been unable to distribute a music release. Fast forward to today and now there is a platform called Patreon! With your Patronage we can help Ballard get to the $5,000 per month suggested support level.

Consider Supporting Evan Ballard On Patreon Today:

https://www.patreon.com/HBallard?fan_landing=true

Sometimes in life we aren’t consistent and that costs us. With the current state of Internet affairs I’m afraid the algorythm Gods highly favor consistency. That’s why Patreon is so important as a platform leading the way into the future as a sustainable business model. People with issues, like mental illness, that prevent them from being 100% consistent can count on the monthly support from Patreon. When the $5,000 per month goal is reached Ballard’s plan is to cover costs on his very first solo album. Those that join Ballard on this journey will be able to get updates on his progress, some undisclosed goodies, and a free album once it’s released.

Many Patreon pages include a lot of free content, but Ballard’s page is pretty much locked. Meaning you will have to pledge your support to his page at the $5/month level to unlock the content.

Progress So Far

Surprisingly Evan Ballard is already working on his 7th song. That was back at the end of Feb. so it might be more now. To find out if you like Evan’s music or not go to his page and scroll down to the Jan. 10th post titled ‘Shotgun’ that’s a streaming audio post open to the public.

What Are The Rewards?

There is one level of support and that is the $5 level. With $5 per month you will get one raw recording per month. This recording may or may not be on the final album. Right now at the time of this writing he has the support of 11 Patrons. That’s a great start!

Conclusion

I’ve said this countless times on my blog, we need to support the thing we value in culture. The support doesn’t always have to be financial, we could follow and like their content. If you really want to see the proliferation of artists you need to support them on platforms such as Patreon. You could also buy their complete album, buy their merch, or go to their concerts. Whatever you do make it known! If you like something make it known to your community that you value it. Consider supporting Ballard and the other artists I’ve featured on this blog in the past.

  • Comments Off on Support Talk of the Town Nola (WTOT New Orleans) On Patreon

Talk Of The Town if you don’t already know is a media movement based in New Orleans Louisiana. The mission of the media network created out of concern for the future of New Orleans is to bring a voice to those that don’t have one. The impact of canceling Mardi Gras and Carnival alone means the loss of about 1 billion dollars for the economy according to MarketPlace.org. It looks like the economy of New Orlenas won’t recover until next year at the earliest. If this project is supported on Patreon Talk Of The Town will move from just Louisiana to other cities. Also, the organization will scale up to the Bitcaster Network thus reaching more people this way. Talk of the Town Nola (WTOT New Orleans) is on Patreon and needs your support!

Support Talk Of The Town On Patreon Today:

https://www.patreon.com/Talkofthetownnola

Talk Of The Town was started by Philip Begnaud, with the help of Oliver Stokes, also known as DJ Black n Mild(google). This idea began when he was working as the program director of a talk radio station in New Orleans. Oliver died of Covid when the pandemic began so everyone involved has been driven to see this project expand. The current iteration of the organization can be found on Bounce 24/7 on TuneIn, Night Time Fire, www.talkofthetownnola.com with 80’s Babies, and Donald Harrison’s Jazz Collective coming soon. The goal is to transform this project into a terrestrial radio platform by the end of 2021.

NOLA Talk Of The Town

“I felt it was time for a communication platform that is truly for the people. Where honest conversation and commentary surrounds current events, issues, politics, and trending topics relatives to locals and those who love the city of New Orleans. We are trying to build a communication engine that is as true of platform as media can be. We need help.”

Wouldn’t that be refreshing? Honest conversation surrounding current events and other important topics. Sometimes I feel when information is too market driver the message can get skew to a certain degree. The art of conversation is something that I think have made Podcasts extremely popular. May be we need more small radio shows like Talk Of The Town.

How It’s Going To Be Done

It’s really interesting actually how they plan to set up this radio station. The goal is to build a terrestrial radio station (This is difficult). To do this cost effectively they will set up small transmitters that will cover about 2 miles, the more they get the better. This has been done with success in San Francisco, California.

What’s The Goal?

The Patreon goal right now to get things started is $5000/month. There are several membership levels to choose from each with their special reward. At the $10 per month level get thesatisfaction of helping the team with their mission. At the $40 per month level submit a 30 second commercial and they will air it daily. At the $80/month level you can submit a 60 second commercial or announcement that will air daily. At the $100 per month level if you create a show they will air it. Finally at the $300 per month level you will sponsor the team and their purchase of transmitters. These are some really cool promotions especially if you are a small business in New Orleans. It’s a no brainer to take advantage of these offers!

Conclusion

Talk Of The Town is just at the beginning stages of their Patreon and need your help now to make this campaign a success. Please consider donating to their Patreon to help the community of New Orleans and possible expanding to a city new you.

 

 

 

SA Pacific Custom Keycaps On Kickstarter

  • Comments Off on SA Pacific Custom Keycaps On Kickstarter

Looking for custom keycaps? There is a new and exciting Kickstarter by Joel Collins of SA Pacific that may have the product for you. The product is custom key caps suitable for any mechanical style keyboards, (like corsair, razer, etc.). If you are like me you think of computer keyboards as a tool, a means to an end. Custom key caps are not something that I usally think about. I have owned a “customized” keyboard in the past, but it was customized by the manufaturer, not by me. SA Pacific has made me think of computer keyboards in a whole new way. The company featured on Kickstarter allows you to fully customize your keyboard in a pleasing Lockheed Martin inspired color pallete. Boring keyboards will be a thing of the past with this new custom computer keycap set by Joel Collins of SA Pacific.

In order for this project to get funded they need to have more backers in the next few days.

Support Kickstarter Here:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ireakhavok/sa-pacific-custom-keycaps-inspired-by-lockheed-martin 

The Keyboard Profile

The keycap set is said to be “soothing, electrifying, and comforting, all at once.” I’d encourage you to at least watch the intro video about the campaign it explains a lot. There is passion behind this campaign. The blue color pallete is inspired by Lockheed Martin. Why Lockheed Martin you ask? Mr. Collins is a Computer Scientist, Physicist, Chemist, and mathematician. Currently, he’s working as a Research Scientist at Lockheed Martin. He has partnered with Signature plastics, Space Cables, and Specter Custom Mousepads to complete this Kickstarter. Signature plastics is well known in the custom keyboard community and has a great reputation. The line of products doesn’t just stop at keyboards, you will be able to purchase a custom cable and desk mat which will be color coordinated. “These two add-on extras will be available as part of the add-on beta program. The Custom cable will feature a USB-c, chrome plated, detachable, and color coordinated mesh sleeve that will help to accent the keycaps set. The large mousepad will be XXL (35″x15″) and 3mm thick. The add-on versions of these items will be 10-15% cheaper than the stand-alone rewards for those items.” In a world where everyone owns and wears the same thing in order to stand out from anyone backing gigs on Kickstarter is a great way to get something you won’t find anywhere else. It will inspire your work for years to come.

Keyboard On Table

This is not just any generic keycap set. The base product features 104-keys, SA profile (1-1-2-3-4-3). It’s made of thick plastic, quality you can feel as you type. The plastic is highly sculpted to further improve the typing experience. For a limited time on Kickstart get the exclusive Pantone coated plastic keys. Once the $15,000 project goal has been reached an exciting add-on kit will be unlocked for $1. This bonus key cap kit will feature 21 Lockheed Martin specific legends (See Picture Below).

Custom Keys

Then, if that wasn’t enough, once the $17,000 threshold goal is reached a $55 add-on for custom cable package will be posted. “This custom cable will be a custom Cerakote color combination, with Dark blue base color, Pacific blue mesh, chrome aviator plug, Coiled, USB-C, 1.5m in length.” But wait there’s more! 🙂 if/when this Kickstarter reaches the $19,000 threshold there is another bonus that will be unlocked. You will be able to purchase a XXL desk mat for $45. These 35×15, 3mm thick desk mats will feature a custom design. There’s even more! At the $20,000 level another colorway version of the Keycap artisans and keycaps will be available as add-on.

Kickstarter Levels Of Support

First level of support is $10 or above. Support at this level just because you believe in the idea and want to help Collins out. The next level of backing is $50, this gets you a thank you note and a XXL watercolor deskmat. $65 gets you a custom space cable and thank you card. Pledge $110 and that gets you a custom XXL mat and custom space cable. Pledge $184 or more and that gets you the keycap set custom version and dark version. These items will ship anywhere in the world. No matter where you are backing from he will ship to you.

Conclusion

I’ve actually been in the market for a new keyboard. I might have to snag one of these custom cool Lockheed Martin inspired keyboard cap sets. Even if you don’t know much about Lockheed Martin these keys are very pleasant to look at from just an aesthetics point of view. Since we are spending more time than ever behind a computer and a screen during the pandemic why not make the entire experience as satisfying as possible. Consider supporting SA Pacific and Joel Collins today on Kickstarter. Who knows may you might write your next novel on his set of keys.

Jazz Meets Electronic Music Mark de Clive-Lowe On Patreon

  • Comments Off on Jazz Meets Electronic Music Mark de Clive-Lowe On Patreon

As I mentioned last week in a Cash Sherpa post the one thing I miss the most during this pandemic is live music. In my city just a few weeks ago they shut down bars and restaurants again, and music venues… well music venues haven’t been open for almost a year now. If you are like me and want great music to continue and not devolve into soulless baby shark songs everywhere consider supporting musicans you care about now. There is another interesting artist doing great things listed on Patreon that I’d like to bring to my audiences attention. His name is Mark de Clive-Lowe and Mark creates jazz-meets-electronic genre music heavily incorporating music technology (ableton, native instruments maschine) in his process.

Mark de Clive-Lowe started his Patreon after everything got shut down due to the pandemic. He has been a touring artist for 20 years non stop up until this point. Mark needed to do something, he thought, “since i’m not able to go anywhere, I needed to find an outlet for my creativity.” Patreon seemed like the obvious choice, since it allows artists to produce what they enjoy creating and income to facilitate this process. It is as close as a win-win business model that I’ve ever seen on the Internet, the secret is that it’s self sustaining. Seth Godin talks about art being “a human act, a generous contribution, something that might not work, and it is intended to change the recipient for the better, often causing a connection to happen.” The issue with art only being a “generous act” not paired eventually with some sort of income is it will eventually lead to not enough money in the bank. What happens when there isn’t enough money? Well, you start focusing more on the bills and less on the art. So that’s why I think Patreon is so powerful as a platform. We can have that “generous act” of creating art, but also be supported by a community of fans.

Consider supporting unique artists like Mark de Clive-Lowe on Patreon today visit:

Mark de Clive-Lowe Patreon

Mark says the best thing about Patreon has been “the feeling of community on it – it’s been really special to get it going. even just our monthly community zoom sessions, everyone shares music they’re loving at the moment and we listen together and chat about it. That kind of thing has been building the community vibe there a lot. We just started community creative collaborations too – inviting members to collab with me and each other regardless of skill level or experience.”

Not only you’ll be able to listen to Mark’s newly created tracks you’ll also get a front row seat to his creative process. You’ll get access to a community on Patreon that likes and supports great music. The Patreon community will get new exclusive music every month as well as access to his extensive archive. The archive includes tracks, monthly livestream performances, community zoom chats and behind the scenes livestreams breaking down different projects, tracks and collaborations. For the music-makers, there’s in-studio zoom sessions, video lessons, multitrack stems, sample packs, and more. Mark’s Patreon page also just started community creative collaborations through his Discord server that’s open to everyone. There’s an exclusive Patreon-only vinyl, private access to works-in-progess and monthly mentoring/lessons available too.

What Benefits You’ll Get:

As a Patreon supporter at the $3 get access to the vault archive. Invitation to Community Collaborations. Invitation to Discover Server. Bonus content and first listens. $10 per month gets you the Vault+ exclusive new music monthly, livestream live set, and monthly community Zoom chat. $25 per month (Top Level) gets you the Vault+ Front Row+ which includes monthly studio sessions, behind the sceens livestream, access to WAV remix stems for selected releases, bonus video lessons, and access to sample pack downloads.

Preview Before Supporting

Everything is sounding good to me from a Patreon standpoint, but what about the actual music? Luckily for you Mark de Clive-Lowe has a YouTube page where he is a featured artist. Check out the YouTube “With Love From LA” page here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tTedQZJLPY “With Love From LA presents this month’s feature artist – jazz-meets-electronica artist Mark de Clive-Lowe. Today he joins us from his home studio with a special WLFLA set.” If there is one thing that stands out to me is the creativity is taken to the next level. “I’ve always been an advocate of integrating technology with music.” He has every piece of DJ equipment, keyboards, software, live drummer, lights, it has to be experienced in video form to appreciate the scale of the production Mark is putting on.  This is not a Mark de Clive-Lowe exclusive YouTube page so you will need to sign up for Patreon in order to continue watching content such as this. Mark started piano when he was 4 and his experience shows. He grew up aspiring to be a jazz musician and fell in love with hip hop and electronic music along the way.

Conclusion

Do you want to continue seeing and hearing great live music? Support artists like Mark de Clive-Lowe on Patreon so it’s still around after the pandemic is over. Become a fan and support Mark’s Patreon today.

Still Not Convinced?

“a beautiful marriage of hip-hop, traditional Japanese music, and Bitches Brew-era Miles Davis, all with some electronic music flourishes. This is some insanely good stuff that has reverence for all the music that it references.” – Raw Select Music
