    I’ve been saying since this thing started that I would be surprised if this didn’t get fully funded, now I would be surprised if it didn’t break past what they made last time

    Welp pledged $50. According to Kicktraq, they're just on track to barely miss 5.5 and I want to do my part to get those shorts.

    They're over 5.3 million now and they've got about a full day left.

    They're definitely hitting that 5.5 mark, don't worry about it.

    Looks like I gotta figure out what level I want to back at. I'm a little concerned about the gizmoplex thing and the remote production plans, so I'm not sure how much cash I actually want to throw at this. I guess the thing that worries me most is if the actors are riffing from separate locations they won't be able to play off each other naturally. It could be really awkward. Time will tell!

    Join me in being a snow globe/music box owner!

    Yes join him! Definitely not me though I mean hahaha who would be crazy enough to spend that kind of money on a music box snow globe

    haha

    Fine, you talked me into increasing my pledge. Can't ignore all those extras for that price.

    All opinions are my own and in no way reflect that of my employer.

    Yeah I wonder what that even is. Honestly with as much as it slowed down in the middle (which I know they always do, but this seemed like excruciatingly slow) I wasn't sure they were gonna hit all 12 episodes. I'm so glad they did and then some! :D

    Noice! I just went back in and added in the other classic episodes I wasn't getting as part of my tier ($150), so now I'm getting all of those :3 I mean, I couldn't not when Mitchell is on that list... (although I honestly might already own a DVD with that one on it :D haha.. I know I do for Space Mutiny but that one is incredible as well so whatever, digital version :P)

    Edit: God but for $70 more I could get a box set and coin too............ GAAHHH... I shouldn't...

    I've got Mitchell on VHS, DVD, and mp4 (or whatever format)

    I skipped all the old stuff since aside from the netflix stuff I have it all

    99k in 9 hours seems like a lock

  • Librarian's ghostLibrarian's ghost Librarian, Ghostbuster, and TimSpork Registered User regular
    Update: If they get to 5.8 (as time of typing 100K left) then the 3-D episode will be a Halloween special and everyone gets 3-D glasses (You gotta pay shipping if not getting anything else physical)

    If they beat 6,364,229, which was their total at the conclusion of the telethon last time, they will do a 13th episode and give everyone an extra month of Gizmoplex.

    3d eh?

    I'd have rather gotten a sticker honestly

    but I'm not complaining because 12 episodes and 12 shorts!

    One of the episodes was already going to be 3-D but you had to either add-on the glasses or pledge at a specific level to get them. They said there would be a 3D and non-3D version of the episode. Now everyone would get at least one pair for free and it is a Halloween themed episode akin to the Christmas ones.

    Also the 13th episode would be a Christmas episode for Emily so that all four hosts have one Christmas movie.

    who is Emily?

    I feel like I must have missed an episode or something

    edit: she was a host at some live events which explains why I've never seen her

    I was miiiiighty tempted to get all the classic episodes but settled for the digital downloads for season 13.

    The trick is to spend years buying all the shout factory dvds and tracking down the out of print volumes, then convert your vhs copies of the never to be re-released episodes to dvd and make matching art for the dvd cases like I did.

    That was you just have every single episode on disc. My parents and I have been re-watching the series in chronological order, one episode a week. We are almost up to Joel leaving in season 5. Doing it that way really highlights the call backs to previous episodes and the multi episode running jokes they get going.

    They've been playing Quest of the Delta Knights on the Twitch channel, which means they got the rights back. Come on Shout Factory, sell me a good disc so I can retire my VHS copy.

    Ok I threw a few bones their way. Really had to talk myself out of the $400 add on that gets you 130 classic episode downloads.

    I went with Season 13 download + Season 12 download + 10 classic episodes download (though it sounds like this is being bumped up to 20?)

    I'm watching this telethon and there is a magician on who makes robots out of cardboard that do magic tricks and the twitch chat is loosing its mind.

    Also Dana Gould is about to be on.

    The telethon is live, with the cast and crew and some special guests:



    There's been some really weird stuff, including the guy behind Rockafire animatronics, a robot doing magic tricks, and Dana Gould.

    I bought the bullet and bought the $75 tier. But wow, that $1000 60-second customer video was realllllllly tempting. I was just a little less broke. At least this gives me some semi-permanent souvenirs.

    You know what? Nanowrimo's cancelled on account of the world is stupid.

    Nah, it's just a reasonable sum for maintaining a rock-solid number of fans, not pissing away hundreds of millions on projects that are 90% trash in the hopes of briefly netting a handful of new subscriptions.

    Not to mention they wouldn't 100% own the MST3k material, so they won't want to bother with it.
