In Memory of Gerald ‘The York Minster Cat’ – a Community crowdfunding project in York by Gerald ‘The York Minster Cat’

by crypto journalist
Thank you for visiting our page. There are I’m sure, many people out there who met and became fond of Gerald ‘The York Minster Cat’ who sadly passed away early September this year.  Gerald was an incredibly special cat who spent the latter three years of his life happily patrolling the cobbled streets and gardens surrounding York Minster. Gerald had a very comfy bed and food at home but his independent character meant that for much of his days and nights he was out.  Gerald became well known throughout York and infact the world, appearing in selfies and posts all […]

by crypto journalist
A group called Cock Bock Craig Kelly is raising money to send serial pest Craig Kelly 1000 dildos as revenge for sending everyone those unsolicited text messages. Iconic. The anonymous group is attempting to raise $15000 for their cause and have also pledged to donate $7 for every dick.

The REAL story behind BrewDog’s ‘sellout’ is that crowdfunding will only get you so far | Zythophile

by crypto journalist
The real story behind the news that BrewDog is copping more than £200 million from the private equity firm that also part-owns Pabst Blue Ribbon, is not, despite the howls of “hypocrisy!”, that nobody can resist a big juicy cheque, no matter how punk they claim to be. It is, rather more sadly, that crowdfunding will only get you so far, and if you have really big ambitions, you’re going to have to get in bed eventually with The Man. The deal with TSG Consumer Partners, the $5bn 30-year-old San Francisco-based private equity firm, sees TSG acquire “approximately” 22 per […]
