Agalmatophilia: A Tragedy In Three Acts Crowdfunding Campaign Week #01

Dear everyone,

The first week of the crowdfunding campaign of Agalmatophilia: A Tragedy In Three Acts is over.

It was a very intense week, if you ask me, and I feel pretty tired, more than I should be, probably. It’s common for people who do something for the first time to waste too much energy, I guess.

Anyway, it was also a very rewarding week: we reached the 16% of our goal, and even if that doesn’t sound like a lot, statistically, 4 in 5 campaigns that have reached that percentage on the first week succeed.

There’s hope!

Of course, the real campaign starts now: there is no time to rest!

I’d like to thank everyone who spent a bit of his/her time/money to contribute to Agalmatophilia: A Tragedy In Three Acts. I’m really, really, really thankful!

(By the way, I’ll start sending the perks next week, so you’ll receive them pretty soon!)

And if you haven’t visited the Indiegogo page of the campaign, just go to...

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/agalmatophilia-a-tragedy-in-three-acts/x/16999351#/

Of course, when you’re there, select a perk and share! Every kind of contribution can make the difference, believe me.

Now it’s time for me to go to the screening of Incantations at The International Bar in Dublin. It was organised by the C-47 team (https://m.facebook.com/CollectiveFourtySeven/), the same fantastic guys that made Creation, the first video of a trilogy inspired by Agalmatophilia: A Tragedy In Three Acts.

If you haven’t seen it:

Take care,

The Books Of Hell

‘The Books Of Hell’ is the second track of my album ‘Songs Of Fear And Agony’, and it’s one of my favourites.

One more stroke of fear to start

Provoking all those vacuous eyes.

Disdain is just a simple matter

Of self-preservation.

Some years ago I spent one of the worst periods of my life, and this song was inspired by it. It could be considered as my personal vision of hell or one of the many.

Depression amplifies every single aspect of life you normally dislike and, at the same time, erases the pleasure you get from what you love. You constantly try to find something you might enjoy, and unfortunately, sometimes the only thing that gives you pleasure is your own condemning other people’s sins.

Why is this song called ‘The Books Of Hell’?

Books are my special friends. They give me pleasure and food to feed my mind at the same time. Music and films are special because they’re alive, in a way, and that’s because of their essential element: time. You’re face to face with them. Books are different. Books are dead, and that’s not a negative thing: the dead are the greatest teachers.

Books, like any other things, didn’t give me much pleasure during the time I told you about, but...

But after all, I can’t complain.

I’ve got some books of poems and plays

And, yeah, the amusement’s gone but, still,

Their fundamental truth remains.

Thanks for reading!
