#881: Blue Screen of Death

January 24, 2014

Notes from the Manager

The film, of course, is Her. (You can read, right?) Here is its first trailer:

In case you guys don’t remember Jimmy, he’s a refugee from Theater Hopper, the late, lamented movie comic by my good friend Tom Brazelton.

Speaking of Tom and late, lamented movie-related things, this Sunday (January 26) at 9 PM Central, Tom and Joe Dunn of Joe Loves Crappy Movies and myself are joining forces once again for a video reunion of The Triple Feature, our old movie podcast. We’ll be discussing a trio 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)! Chances are we’ll run a bit long, because there’s so much to talk about!

You have to be one of my Patreon backers at the $10 level or higher in order to call in live — I’ve had enough technical difficulties already with the ones so far; I’m new to this stuff! But I’ll have more information about where you can watch (posted to the Deleted Scenes blog), and unlike future editions of the Patreon video hangout things I will make this one available for anybody to watch on YouTube after the fact.

Multiplex: The Revenge pre-orders are OPEN

Tuesday, August 4, 2015

Now that the Kickstarter project has ended and Multiplex: The Revenge is funded (yay!), I can open up the floor for pre-orders to non-backers via BackerKit. I’m using BackerKit instead of handling things through the Multiplex store (as I did with Book Two), because merging everything and keeping track of essentially two separate crowdfunding projects proved to be a huge headache; BackerKit streamlines that process for me tremendously.

NOT all of the Kickstarter rewards are available, and some are slightly different: i.e. you don’t get your name on the Acknowledgments page of the book, and while you can get vector portraits, I can’t promise that you’ll make it into the third book. (There is only so much room!) Some of the higher level rewards (like original comic strips) are not available, either — although if you have your heart set on one of those, just shoot me an e-mail, and we can probably figure something out.

The current stretch goal is to fund a second printing of Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show (Book One), a necessary step before I can doing a fourth printed book. The amount needed is $7500, with roughly $1,238.97 of Kickstarter’s surplus (the amount over the $24,000 funding goal) applicable toward that. Once this goal is reached, I’ll add Book One  as a reward goal for ANY Kickstarter or BackerKit backers (“preorder backer,” as they call them).

I’ll put up a few more visible graphics on the site later — there’s no urgency at this time, so I won’t be bugging you guys about it often. These BackerKit pre-orders will be open for several months and only “lock” in the summer shortly before Book Three goes to press.

If you do want to get your funding dollars in to help support the ongoing production of the book series, check out the Multiplex: The Revenge Pre-Order page on BackerKit today!
