#826: Now That You Mention It

Short one this time — partly to balance out the long one on Monday, and partly because I’m moving on Monday morning, so I need to get these next two done quickly, so I can pack all my shit up.

Those of you on the website will see new sharing icons below. I wanted to replace the inefficient AddThis code I was using with something faster (ShareThis is even slower), so I made little bit of inline SVG+CSS. It uses zero Javascripts and zero linked images and weighs only about 6k, so it is much, much faster. (I don’t get statistics like I would with AddThis, but really, I don’t care about that stuff). It does, however, not play nicely with older browsers that don’t like either inline SVG or base64-encoded transparent PNGs. If that’s the case, much of the rest of the site probably looks jacked up anyway, and you should get a new browser.

If you run a website of your own and would like to use this yourself, I’ve put it up over at Github.

Multiplex Movie Review comics MILESTONE GOALS

Tuesday, July 28, 2015

In case you missed it, I shared a short PDF eBook with eight Multiplex Movie Review comics on Patreon and elsewhere (publicly/free/etc.) Some of those comics might be new to you. But that got me thinking… which is never a good thing…

We are in the last few days of the Multiplex: The Revenge Kickstarter project! Thanks to a veritable onslaught of pledges (and pledge increases!) yesterday, things are looking less grim than yesterday: we’ve just passed 80% of the funding goal! This means there is less than $5000 to raise — but only three and a half days to do it in.

SO. Let’s do this. I’ve set three milestones, at $2,000 increments, to get us to the funding goal with a little time to spare. If we pass each of them (any time before MIDNIGHT), I’ll do the following Multiplex Movie Review comics — one page per movie — and share them right here in the Deleted Scenes blog… you know, after I watch the movie and make the comic. (In case you’re curious, of the movies here, I’ve only ever seen the first three Transformers movies.)

The first one’s easy, too, since we’re (currently) at $19,250…
