#1132: The Long and Short of It, Part Four

June 6, 2016

This will probably be Evelyn’s last appearance… but Randall isn’t done at the Multiplex 10 yet. See you Friday!

I’m not sure anything Evelyn says really needs translation, but I’ll save you the Google fu:

  • “Hijo de la gran puta” = Son of the biggest whore
  • “jódia vieja” = fucking old woman
  • “jódete” = fuck you
  • “so cabrón” = you asshole/bastard
  • “Vete pa’l carajo” = go fuck yourself (literally: go to fuck)
  • “mama bicho” = cocksucker

(I’ve updated these a couple of times from earlier today, because Evelyn is Puerto Rican, and apparently their swear words are very different. Thanks for the assist, Miguel S.!)

Say hello to Kurt and Jason

Sunday, April 23, 2017

Hello! The Multiplex 10 Kickstarter project ends in just over 14 days. As of this writing, we are a little north of $12,000, so just over 80% of our base goal. Judging from my last two Kickstarters, we’re doing very well. The final week should pick up considerably over this past week.

BUT don’t forget that we still have a milestone goal of Jason reviewing every Harry Potter movie if we make that $15,000 baseline goal on/before Wednesday, April 26th, though! (Plus Fantastic Beasts if we make it on/before Monday, April 24th. But that seems kind of unlikely at this point.) I thought that was a fun premise… but it’s up to the Gods of Kickstarter now.

I also officially added our first (and, at this point, only) STRETCH GOAL. At $20,000, we’ll be able to do a few extra things:

  • Smoother, 4K animation
  • 5.1 Surround Sound mix (courtesy sound designer Ian Vargo)
  • AND… a theatrical premiere at the Somerville Theatre here in Somerville, MA. (All backers at the Special Thanks level and up will get free admission… although, of course, transportation is not provided.)

Thanks so much for all your support. I’m exciting at how the Kickstarter project is coming together, and I can’t wait to get started on the animated short. (Full time, I mean. I’m already working on it!)

Pledge your support today! If you haven’t already!
