“I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain.”

I did not know this.
things that should be taught in english lessons but aren’t.
welcome to the basics of stealing from French
“Monster" is derived from the Latin noun monstrum, "divine portent," itself formed on the root of the verb monere, "to warn." It came to refer to living things of anomalous shape or structure, or to fabulous creatures like the sphinx who were composed of strikingly incongruous parts, because the ancients considered the appearance of such beings to be a sign of some impending supernatural event. Monsters, like angels, functioned as messengers and heralds of the extraordinary. They served to announce impending revelation, saying, in effect, "Pay attention; something of profound importance is happening.”

#work place equality everyone
It is with great and flabbergasted to the point of hourly weeping (DON’T LOOK AT ME) pleasure that Alex and I get to say sincere and heartfelt thank you’s to all the amazing fan’s of Baman Piderman. The show was over doubley funded, a fact that I am still trying to process as I lay face up on the floor with my hands covering my face. Every single stretch goal was met, putting us up to ten new animated shorts and a music video with cool dude Neil Cicierega. This is a truly incredible thing, and I cannot stress just how humbled and grateful Alex and I are to all you. We love making cartoons, and whether you pledged or just enjoy the show on youtube, you have our earnest gratitude! Thank you so much for supporting us, our work, and independent animation on the web!
Look for New Baman Piderman starting sometime in September! And if you’re a backer, watch your email for your goodies to come to you soon!
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
Lindsay and Alex
Aidan Chambers, This is All
Hey there all you dingle-donks! You should all give your green wallet paper to Alex and Lindsey’s BAMAN &PIDERMAN KICKSTARTER because it’s a great show and for the price of a taco and coke, you could help bring literally hours of entertainment to yourself and your friends. Or you could get the taco and coke and poop it out a couple hours after to ate it.
Make the right choice.
