  • Ha! I love your mister very much. Mine would not understand this at all.

    Okay, going under self-control for an hour to salvage some of my productivity for the day. My MIL did not take my kids to her house just so I could sit around and stare at a kickstarter page and squee. ($606k!!!!!)

      • Mr. Is did not entirely understand until I told him I'd get a DVD and some other shit. Like that even mattered! Ha!
        Itís just really honestly so tiring and emotionally draining to have to get upset over reality constantly.

        • HOLY SHIT, Y'ALL!!!

          I looked away for a few minutes to actually WORK and THIS HAPPENS!!!

          Oh, my freaking GOD!

          I just screamed out loud like a little girl. I have to go figure out how much money I can get away with spending on this. If it was my choice, it would be ALL THE MONEY.

          • That is awesome Issie!

            I'm seriously going to have to buy a prepaid card to donate because mr gloop would shit a brick sideways and we would probably fight about it for 1000 years if it showed up on our bank account. He's a total miser and would passive/aggressively torture me over it (with things like "we could have went out to dinner if we hadn't funded that movie") so I'm going to have to be squirrely. I HATE THAT.

            • But you get something for the $. So for $35 you get a t-shirt and a digital download of the movie.

              • Mr. Issie is just as big of a TV nerd as I am. We have different fandoms, but VMars was one of our shared loves. He was all, "Shit like this is the reason I go to work everyday." WORD.

                  • I would just LoVe ( <--may never stop doing that) to be in on the phone calls and texts that are surely going on between RT and the actors right now as they watch those dollar signs rise. They MAY be almost as excited as we are.

                    ETA: $759k

                    • I am ridiculously excited about how KBell ended her letter on the site:

                      LoVe to you ALL,

                      kristen bell
                      ETA: Over 815,000, now.

                      • I thought this would be funded by now. I'm starting to get anxious.

                            • This is the guy that bought the speaking role for $10k: http://popwatch.ew.com/2013/03/13/ve...speaking-role/

                              There are fans, and then there are stans — the rabid zealots who spend 12 months creating detailed replicas of a fantasy world out of Legos, or those who make it their mission to cook every single food mentioned in their favorite series, or who camp outside for hours in a blizzard in hopes of maybe getting a ticket to see the object of their devotion perform.
                              Steven Dengler, the man who pledged $10,000 to Rob Thomas’s Veronica Mars movie on Kickstater today, is… not one of those people — at least where Veronica is concerned. “I’m not a superfan in the sense of knowing every line from every episode or anything like that,” he told EW during a phone interview this afternoon. “In fact,” he continued, “if you put me in with your average group of superfans, I’d probably get bounced pretty quickly… I would call myself a small-f ‘fan’ of the series.”

                              Dengler is, however, a superfan of something else: crowdfunding itself. A wealthy entrepreneur — he co-founded XE.com, a currency site that ranks among Alexa’s top 500 most popular webpages globally — he’s also an active philanthropist who has backed some 65 projects on Kickstarter, contributing to projects including videogames and an engineering set designed for girls.

                              “What I love about Kickstarter is it really is empowering the artists, the people who create content, to go directly to the fan base and say, ‘Look, let’s skip this baloney,’” he said, referring to the old-fashioned method of finding financiers who may demand creative control in exchange for funds. “Let’s just make it and not involve this crazy stupid layer of people who think they know what you want.”

                              Clearly, fans agree with Dengler’s philosophy — the Veronica Mars movie raised more than $1.3 million in about six hours, with its total is climbing by the minute. The film’s biggest single investor guesses that its budget will soon exceed its goal of $2 million, much like the CRPG game Torment (which Dengler also backed). And this money will come in addition to whatever the cult series’ stars like Kristen Bell and creator Rob Thomas pitch in themselves. “My experience with self-financed production is, ‘Don’t worry, they’ll be kicking in,’” he said, noting the “piles and piles of invisible costs” that crop up during a project like this.

                              Soon enough, then, Dengler could find himself reaping the reward that his $10,000 entitles him to — a speaking role in the Veronica Mars movie itself. Well, as long as his schedule permits: “I’m really busy, and I travel a lot,” he noted. “I do have a day job which takes up my attention, so ironically, this might be something I won’t even be able to do in the end. I may have to nominate one of my friends to do it in my place.” Note to actual Veronica Mars superfans: Make friends with Steven Dengler ASAP.

                              • Unlikely! But here's hoping.

                                Also? Can I just hate on everybody on Twitter who are all concerned about how problematic it is fans to finance a movie?

                                First of all, we are financing ART, not Warner Brothers. I buy pieces of art all the time! I consider creative endeavors of all sorts to be worthy of my money. I pay for TV, DVDs, books, hand-crafted etsy pieces, tickets to movies, plays, live shows, craft items, etc. I mean, it's all part of the same spectrum of me using my few bucks in this big ol' world to encourage creative people to continue to create because I LOVE that shit and, to be all philosophical, it makes this world a better place. Maybe not as good a place as giving all money to stop violence against women in the Congo but damn you gotta lighten up sometimes? And art doesn't always lighten. And I don't always agree with it (even when I love it). I just can't stand the posts I have seen that are all: WB is using the proletariat to fund its endeavors! WTF. You missed the point, people.
