In which we beg for money and invite you to a party.

WHEW!! What an awesome couple of weeks!!

First off, we had a blast at our DVD release screening for Loaded Guns: the Movie! Here are a couple of reviews from that, full of love and tenderness, and HERE is where you can buy the DVD and our amazing T-shirt for your very own! If you’re not sure you want to own the incredible Loaded Guns: the Movie, then you can rent that bitch at Videodrome!! DO IT!

Today we launched our very first fundraising campaign on IndieGoGo. This is a big deal because we really need a new computer. Eli’s computer, on which we have edited ALL our videos (and Loaded Guns: the Movie), finally had it one day and passed quietly in its Sleep mode. So, after burying it in the backyard, we turned to IndieGoGo to set up a fundraising campaign to buy another one. We need to raise $2600 for a new iMac by July 13th, 2011. What’s the rush? Well, before the computer died, we signed on to screen the pilot episode of our first web series, Choose Your Adventure, at the Drive-By Theater Festival on July 17th. So…if we’re to have that pilot edited and ready by then, we really need this computer a few days before, and Eli’s going to need several Red Bulls because he’ll be up all night. If we don’t raise the money we need, we’ll be forced to show Drive-By’s audience a loop of hamsters eating tiny, artfully crafted salads because WE WILL HAVE NOTHING ELSE TO OFFER. Check out our IndieGoGo page, watch our awesome video, consider donating and definitely share our campaign with your friends and family and help us reach our goal!!

In other news, THIS SATURDAY is our very first Atlanta Fringe Festival fundraising event! Get Your Buzz On! will be at Sutra Lounge in Midtown from 7-10 p.m. and features Tim Monteith, an incredible performer who dresses in drag and dances with puppets as his backup, or he dresses like Wilma Flintstone and sings a duet with a dinosaur. It’s wonderful! Plus we’ll have Molotov (and friends!) from Thimblerig Circus breathing fire and walking on glass (his idea!), our favorite DJ Bamboozle on the 1’s and 2’s, and Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School Atlanta doing live drawings RIGHT BEFORE YOUR EYES! There is absolutely nothing to miss about this evening. Plus, it’s the Rapture, so why not spend it with friends who won’t fly away to heaven in the middle of a conversation?
