I'm doing a AMA on reddit.com right now in /r/IAmA
You'll know me as Dazthecowboy.
ask me anything and find out why.
here's a link
What an interesting couple of days. you do a couple interviews and the next thing you're doing is battling the Pope for best clip of the week.
If you're not sure what i'm on about, thanks to the hard work of Tom from World Reach PR i recently did an interview with Reuters news agency. after doing that, two days later i get this email.
"Hey Daz – just for your info you were just outside the top 10 news videos in the world yesterday with 93 different networks using you globally. If it wasn't for the Ukraine and the Pope you’d have been in the top 5!"
So needless to say it provided me with much laughings and many funnies. so i had a look around on the web and here are some links i found.
Der Spiegel (Germany)
Sky News (UK)
El Mundo (Spain)
Yahoo News (UK)
i can finally talk about what we have been doing the last couple of days. so basically the jet luge is now in a finished shape. with that said, we decided to show it off to the world. we held a media launch and had a few reports show up from not only Australia's press, but also the world media. that was a pleasant surprise.
Now without any further adieu i can finally show you the finished jet luge.
Well as all good things need some kind of funds to move forwards and so does this. Soooo i have launched a campaign with a limited number of shirts and hoodies in varying shapes and styles. i think you'll love them, they were rated very highly by my mum. i have plenty to choose from for the guys and gals.
50% of the total made will go the the Westmead Childrens Hospital and the rest goes on my jet luge and getting it to the next stage of manufacture.
So head on over to the Shop and pick yourself up a t-shirt before they are all gone or we run out of time.
The best part about this campaign is if the goal is not reached you will not be charged anything. so help me out to help the kids and get some cool gear while doing it. please share and spread the word because it all ends on the June 19th 2014.
While I have been working hard on getting the board in its final stages before making the mold, Tom from World Reach PR has also been working hard at organizing the launch of the official announcement that we will be going for the Guinness land speed record for a powered street luge.
thanks to his hard work and commitment on Monday 26th I'll be announcing to the world what I'll be attempting to do. keep an eye out and you may see or hear something in the near future.
In the meantime here is a sneak peek of some stuff I've been doing lately.
Well it's been a busy busy couple of months for me, but unfortunately most of it has been spent on trying to live. funny how that happens. rather than cut a short story long, here is the TL;DR version, sold car for cheaper car to have money for jet luge. new car gearbox breaks. leaves me broke no car. almost lose job because can't get to work.
Everything is ok now, in that i got transport. i picked up a dumped car for $50 WOOHOO! and managed to get it registered, JUST haha.
Unfortunately i'm now broke, which is what bring me here today. i actually really hate asking for anything, especially money. but i have to finish what i started, so i'm asking for donations not in money but in Dogecoin.
I still need about $47,000AUD to finish my board and break the land speed record. while i'm not expecting to get this amount, anything would be of help.
Just like anything that is donated to me HALF of everything that is donated to me will go straight to the childrens hospital to help the next generations of dreamers.
So i ask if there are any of you shibes are out there, please help me to the moon!
