The Triple Feature 2.0: Philip Seymour Hoffman and The LEGO Movie recording tonight at 9pm Central

Tom, Joe, and I had a great time with the last Patreon videocast that we decided to do it again for the next one! (They won’t be joining me every time necessarily; but it’s fun to have them.)

While we had a different slate set up (which we’ll get to next time) we all agreed that more timely topics had presented themselves in the last couple of weeks: the tragic loss of Philip Seymour Hoffman and the release of the universally adored The LEGO Movie, from the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs writer-directors, Chris Miller and Phil Lord.

Join us in the Google Hangout on Air at 9pm Central (or thereabouts)! Or if you can’t make it, I’ll post the video (and an audio-only download) to this post as soon as possible. Patreon backers at the $10+ level will get an invite from inside the hangout shortly before we start.

Multiplex is brought to you in part by the letters P, A, T, R, E, O, and N

Thanks (again) to all of the Patreon sponsors to date for helping reach the first milestone, allowing me to get rid of the leaderboard ad. Although the Patreon campaign is based on monthly subscription, I took the ad down early.

Special thanks are due to Andrew Hathaway at Can’t Stop the Movies, a film review and discussion site! Hey — don’t you like movies? Check them out.

One bit of news: Multiplex: There and Back Again is due to arrive at my apartment tomorrow! That means I’ll get the pre-orders up and running at the Multiplex Store in the near future. I want to make sure I get the Kickstarter rewards out of the way first, though, and with school started up again, that may take me a little while.

The Return of the Triple Feature!


The Triple Feature, the late, lamented podcast I co-hosted with Theater Hopper’s Tom Brazelton and Joe Loves Crappy Movies’s Joe Dunn is coming back for a one-time special video episode. That’s right — this time, you will get to see our pretty faces, too!

On January 26th at 9pm Central, Tom, Joe, and myself will be Google+ Hanging Out to discuss a triple threat of topics: Jack Reacher (the Christopher McQuarrie Tom Cruise flick), the first few episodes of Helix (the new sci-fi series from Battlestar Galactica’s Ronald D. Moore), and Slayground (the fourth and latest in Darwyn Cooke’s series of comics adaptations of the Parker novels)! It should be a lot of fun.

In order to be able to “call in” (ask questions during the show either in the group chat or possibly even join us on screen), you must be one of my Patreon backers at the $10 level or higher. Those of you who are eligible will receive invites before the show starts. But I will be making the video available to watch on YouTube after the fact.

First Patreon milestone goal reached! And a word about Book 2!

The first milestone goal in the Patreon project has been reached!

Because funds are collected at the beginning of the month, the leaderboard ad will be disappearing for the month of February… and hopefully for every month thereafter (assuming nobody cancels, of course)! In the meantime, of course, more patrons are welcome. I’m totally excited that we’re raising as many as we are, and I’d be perfectly happy if we don’t raise much more than what we have right now — but would love for the site to be completely ad-free!

In the patrons-only Activity Stream, so far there are a handful of comics that only Book 2 (Kickstarter/PayPal) backers and Patreon patrons can read, with Jason reviewing a handful of movies. There will be more stuff soon, too — sketches, more review comics, and the first Google Hangout!

Thank you VERY MUCH to everybody who has signed on to support the strip so far!

Speaking of Book 2, I understand that the Multiplex: There and Back Again shipment will be arriving sooner than I had expected, and I will get the pre-orders for the book opened up in the next few weeks. I want to get the Kickstarter books and rewards out the door before I can add to my to-do pile, because it has already been so delayed. (Sorry! And thank you again, for your patience!)
