So Bad It’s Good 2 needs your help!
As you may or may not have heard, Ed is running a Kickstarter for the sequel to his awesome book, So Bad It’s Good, a compilation of hilarious awful movies for your enjoyment. I also wrote the foreword, so it’s got mad clout.
Anywho, the Kickstarter is having some trouble. There’s four days left and almost $900 to go. The sequel will have more content, better perks, and more contributors, but we need your help to get there! Please check it out and consider donating. Thanks for reading!
Holy jeez, someone did a compilation of all the Previously On’s.
He answered a question yesterday about them and which he prefers. I prefer the random chaotic ones, honestly. It added to the weird soap-ness surreal-ness of it.
My favorite quotes:
"You’re pregnant with Obscurus Lupa’s baby!"
"How is that possible!? She’s a wolf and I’m a robot!"
"No you’re not! You’re fictional!"
"We will fight you, Andrew Dickman! We will fight you with ART! Art artart art art artART!"
"So, how’s the Kickstarter going?"
I had lunch with a friend today, and that wasn’t the easiest question to answer. The vast majority of Kickstarters either clearly fail (I wanted $1.5 million to design a game even though I have no previous experience, why did I only get $247?) or clearly succeed (can I interest you in something called an Ouya?). It’s becoming clear that we’re in neither of those boats right now. Instead, we’re in a third, less well-defined boat. One that probably has oars and sails and stuff. Maybe there are pirates.
Here’s the deal: the Kickstarter is at $1,441 right now, which means we need another $1,059 to fund the book. As I mentioned earlier, 98% of projects that get 60% funded make it all the way there — but there is that nagging 2% that don’t, and it’s possible that this could happen here. Like, maybe there’s a storm and our boat gets thrown off course. Or sirens could lure us into some rocks at the last minute.
Like any Kickstarter that has some level of support, there will be a good number of pledges made over the last 48 hours (especially on the last day). It’s unlikely we’ll get to $2,500 before that period, but it would very much help to get as close as possible so that we’re not counting on a big pledge or two to make the difference in the final hours. The closer we get, the more likely we can make it to shore on our life rafts, or something. Yes, I’m still on the boat metaphor.
Anyway, if you’re interested in bad movies and other so-bad-it’s-good type material, I’d appreciate anything you can pledge, or any effort you can make to spread the word to others who might be interested. There’s going to be lots of great stuff in there - for instance, Lupa just sent me the first draft of her Baywatch entry, and I know you’d like to read that. Share our boat: there’s plenty of room, and nobody has scurvy (that I know of)!

Me: HOW DO YOU LIVE LIKE THIS?!
Captain Thorpe goes through a midlife crisis and starts hitting on Eddie. Meanwhile, Mitch tries to win his wife back.
Jerry and I take on the sequel no one asked for! But did that old man get his breakfast or not?!
I said I’d make something based on this.
Hey folks! I’m starting a new project that I need some volunteers for. I’m going to be producing audio versions of articles from The SCP Foundation wiki.
Quick rundown: The SCP Foundation is a fictional organization that manages certain… unusual objects and beings. The wiki is a compilation…
