ZEBRAS: The forgotten horse

thanks for viweing :)

hello friends&#160;!! i&#8217;m just checking to make sure U all know about this: i&#8217;ve got a Patreon page now, which means you can donate a small amount to me for each time i post a new video (most ppl donate $1-3 per vid)&#8230; this form of donations has been veryy helpful to me so far , it&#8217;s allowed me to stay home in maine this summer, living very cheaply but focused mostly on making new videos . i feel like i&#8217;m exploring new styles and reclaiming the passion and surprise in my work.. i&#8217;ve still felt regularly stressed about money , however, and so i&#8217;m hoping to raise the per-video donation amount further, if any of you want to support me.
im planning to release a book of stories pretty soon too, but i want to put that income toward boost house if possible (same goes for any touring i do this fall). patreon is my way to cover my personal expenses, which is mainly paying off my debt , phone bill, occasional dates with catalina, and once in a while i&#8217;ll buy a book or something . i live frugally, follow a budget, and never want to be rich. but i do really really want to achieve a more stable sense of basic financial security over the coming year . patreon is great for that, because it&#8217;s ongoing support per video . so if you really love my video work and you have enough to donate $1 per video or something, i would reallyy appreciate that&#160;!!!
pleas visit my patreon to read more or watch the video where i explain why i believe in this funding model so much: http://patreon.com/steveroggenbuck
thank you for considering this &lt;3

THE GET TO HELL PODCAST (PILIOT EPISODE)

new podcast helps u with stratigie’s to get in to hell

if you&#8217;ve enjoyed my videos a lot over the past few years, plese take a second to consider this&#160;!!! i&#8217;ve finally found a way that yall can support me directly for my videos if u want to. they&#8217;ll still be free to watch on youtube, but now you can easily set up a recurring donation per-video, if you like. this form of support would mean so so SO much to me, i reallly believe in this kind of donation-based model, it seems beautiful and focused on actualy supporting the artist, not just a purchase of goods. your support in this form would feel veryy special to me and allow me to focus more time on my video output
please visit this page for more info, and if u like, to donate: patreon.com/steveroggenbuck
