Look, I bet you didn’t know this about me, but my favorite book of all time is Tribulation Force, the powerful second novel in Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins’ classic Left Behind series. Why am I telling you this now? Well aside from the fact that my mom told me in order to make new friends I’m going to have to get used to not lying about my life, I’m also trying to establish that I know a whole heck of a lot about the end times, putting me in the unique position of being way over-qualified to talk about the the fourth annual Ende Tymes festival planned for May 8 through May 11 in Brooklyn at Silent Barn and Outpost Artist Resources.

So what is Ende Tymes? In addition to being the period of seven years between the rapture and Christ’s glorious return to Earth, it’s also an annual noise and video art festival in New York. I mean, if your memory is not totally terrible you probably remember reading about it on this site already. All those facts, mind you, are still true. However, now, in addition to announcing a call for video artists (the deadline for submission is April 15), Ende Tymes has made it clear that it needs your help by way of making an Indiegogo dealy! This is like that part in my second-favorite book, Soul Harvest (book four in LaHaye and Jenkins’ seminal Left Behind series), when the Antichrist almost eats a fellah, but then Jesus goes ahead and saves the guy. In this analogy you are Jesus, the fellah is the Ende Tymes Fest, and the Antichrist is not having enough money, I guess.

The fundraising campaign has about a week left to get to its $5,000 goal, and there’s all sorts of special treasures you can get if you donate at different levels, including mix tapes, posters, signed memorabilia, and the chance to literally purchase a performer. That’s right, for the low low price of $100, you can buy an entire Kevin Drumm to take home, teach tricks, and feed bon bons. I’m personally thinking of picking up a Bhob Rainey of my very own. Scope the full lineup below and see which of the artists you might like to make yours.
