Notes from the Manager
I have a feeling a lot of you aren't going to get the Talk to Her reference. Talk to Her is a 2002 film by the Spanish writer-director Pedro Almodóvar, and it's a sublime film. Kiiinda disturbing in spots, but absolutely gorgeous. (Since we're still technically on Academy Awards night, I suppose it's relevant to mention the film earned Almodóvar a Best Original Screenplay Oscar, as well as a Best Director nomination.)
Hiccup is specifically referring to something in a black and white silent film within the film that you get a few glimpses of in the trailer. Even if you haven't seen the film, you might be able to figure it out from the trailer… heh
SEATTLEITES! I will be in your city this weekend for the 2011 Emerald City Comicon — as it says right over there in the left sidebar at the site under "Upcoming Events." Handy, huh? I'll be at table G-14 in Artist's Alley, as it says, so stop by and see me! I'll have books and a verrrry small handful of Michael Bay T-shirts, but I'll also be doing sketches and shaking hands and all the usual convention things.
Due to the con and some runnin' late, I'm afraid there will be an awesome guest strip up on Monday — I hope — but I'll be putting up my regular two updates on Wednesday and Friday instead.
SHIRTS ON SALE! I have a clearance sale on all of the T-shirts in my store at the moment. Copyright shirts have sold out (thank you!!), but the Workplace Romance, Popcorn and Breakfast Club are all $4.99 and even the über-popular Michael Bay is the Devil shirt is only $12.99.
This is a much simpler design than the Michael Bay shirt, so we only need 12 orders by Thursday, March 10th, before I print them up (probably a 1–2 week turnaround) and ship 'em out. If you want 'em, order 'em — especially if you want a Ladies size or Men's 2XL or 3XL (and if you need a size not listed, just shoot me an e-mail and I can set that up for you), because I will not print many extras to keep on-hand. If we don't get the minimum 12 orders, all orders will be canceled and all payments refunded, 'cause the shirts won't get printed!

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!)
