I had a dream, last night, that we were still $70k away from funding, and I took out an emergency second mortgage to fund the whole thing (blame the NyQuil).

Luckily for my wallet, and marriage, and probably prospects of bankruptcy... none of that happened or is necessary.

Unfortunately for me, because of Christmas, I can't donate ANY money toward this. :(

Sonuvacrap, I almost had an stroke watching this... YayyyY!!!!!!!

Now I can go back to work...
And, isn't sanity really just a one-trick pony anyway? I mean all you get is one trick, rational thinking, but when you're good and crazy, oooh, oooh, oooh, the sky is the limit.

Hey! Why are you reading this? It's bad for your eyes, and there's nothing to see here; no words of wit or sage like advice.... Nope, none of that crap... Still here? Well, I guess you can stay for a little while, but no touching. Ok, MAYBE a little bit of touching, but don't expect a kiss... Oh, and don't expect me to cuddle afterwards, either. This is purely physical in nature, and you can't REALLY want something serious after everything we've been through? Fine... 20 seconds of heavy petting, and that's IT!

So... Can you still donate after closing? Timezones mean I wasn't actually sure when it ended, and I missed it ending >.<

Yes! It's now a post-campaign In Demand perk store. So you can still get loot (including a new round of personal voice coaching from Phil LaMarr). If we somehow hit $353k, they'll be able to record the voices for a full season! (Only 92k to go... ;) ) Not sure how long we have, though. So keep spreading the word!

Same page. Just scroll down and the perks are there. If you look carefully you can find the campaign updates, too.

Hmm...I think it's a bit fishy how much got put into it from anon backers at a time without claiming rewards. I feel like something is up. How long are they going to continue to collect money for this?

:tfacepalm: Not you, too, Burns.

Anyway, Indiegogo allows funded campaigns to keep selling perks after the campaign ends, so people who still want in have a chance. If you don't, then you don't have to. But I'm excited to see this done as best as it can be.

As for the ending date, they're taking Christmas weekend off, but they'll announce further details sometime next week.

Hmmm interesting, I thought for sure that would tank.

Curious to see if it's turns into anything substantial now.

Did not think they would make it, honestly. But I am happy that this one was done.
Even if only for a (professional) trailer :) So thanks for anyone who pitched in no matter the amount. \o/
