As some of you may know, in addition to my own blog, I also write blog posts for the Web site Drinking Made Easy. The Web site provides additional content for a TV show by the same name that was hosted by Zane Lamprey and appeared on Mark Cuban’s HDNet television network. As a fan of Zane’s previous show, “Three Sheets” (which ran on the Mojo HD network), I was excited to help support Zane in his new effort by providing drinking-themed articles for the TV show’s Web site. Unfortunately, the television show “Drinking Made Easy” is no more, even though its associated Web site is still around and I continue to supply it with posts (along with many other people).
The reason for this blog post is to let you know about Zane’s new project and also to ask you for your help. “Chug” is another drinking-related show that Zane will host – except instead of having it appear on a traditional television network, it will be available via the Web only (at least for the time being). Since it’s not being backed by a TV network, Zane is trying to raise money to shoot the episodes by crowd-funding it on Kickstarter. For those of you who aren’t already familiar with it, Kickstarter is a Web site that allows people to pitch their special projects to the general public in the hope that folks will be so intrigued with the idea that they will contribute some money – hopefully enough to get their dream off the ground.
This is where you come in. Zane needs to raise a minimum of $500,000 on the Kickstarter site by the end of May, otherwise he loses whatever amount folks have contributed up to that point, preventing “Chug” episodes from being produced. As of this writing, he’s very close to his goal with just a couple of days left to reach the target. If you contribute, you will receive various benefits – the more you contribute, the more (and better!) the benefits you get in return.

Thanks … and cheers!
