#199: Ledgerdemain, Part One

January 24, 2008

Notes from the Manager

First things first: I know. Several of the "facts" in here have since been debunked. This strip takes place on Tuesday, immediately after the news broke -- and some of these debunked facts are still being reported in supposedly legitimate news outlets, like the bit about pills being "scattered about" his body. Anyway. Bear with me. I'm going somewhere with this.

Second: I'm not trying to make fun of his death, so don't yell at me about that. Bear with me, and when this is all done, if you think it was in poor taste, then yell at me, and I'll tell you how little I care.

Third: I liked Heath Ledger as an actor, in the handful of movies I've seen him in, and I felt he was on the verge of a breakthrough in his career with Dark Knight. So, really. I'm not making fun. Bear with me.

Thank you again to Shayna Marchese for the guest strip on Monday. If you missed it, go read it. It's in-continuity, and all of you love Devi, so of course you want to know what's been up with her, right?

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… and, 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!
