Have you heard? We’re on a race to build the first permanent base on the moon. All in the name of great music!
Here’s our official press release:
June 1, 2012 – For Immediate Release
We’re buying the Moon. And if you help us raise the money, you can come live there too.
The creators of Stuff Monsters Like announce a June 2012 Kickstarter campaign to purchase the Lunar surface, construct a Moon base, and write a folk album. Time is of the essence, because the Russians have announced their plans to permanently live on the Moon too.
Many people have asked if Stuff Monsters Like is for real.
“Hell yeah, we’re for real,” said site creators Sarah Giavedoni and Jim MacKenzie as they waved the American Flag. “Now with Russia entering the race to the Moon, this just got interesting.”
Stuff Monsters Like’s fundrasing campaign will run June 1 through June 30. The blog is asking for $578 billion to complete their entire journey and album. Kickstarter has limited them to asking for just over $21 million for their first round of fundraising.
The bloggers will use the funds to travel to the moon, build the moon base, and write a folk album entitled “Lunar Aid 1985.”
This news comes on the heels of Russia’s announcement on May 21, 2012, at the Global Space Exploration Conference, that they will establish a permanent base on the Moon.
The writers of the site say they will not back down from an international challenge. “Russia may want to go to the moon, but Stuff Monsters Like is the only one who can promise you that once we get to the moon, we’re going to write some killer tunes.”
In the spirit of John F. Kennedy, Stuff Monsters Like says, “We choose to go to the Moon – not because it is easy, but because it is hard, because that challenge is one that we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win against Russia. And we expect a great folk album to come out of it, too.”
Stuff Monsters Like is a blog about the every day dalliances of sub-humans and mutants, written from a monster’s perspective.
