A lot can happen in 47 hours. In 147 hours that dude got stuck between those two rocks and cut his arm free.
But we only have 47 hours to raise $1104. Which, holy shit, is so much less money than 5 days ago when we needed 4 grand.
I'm writing this update to fill you guys in on what's going to happen with the next season of the show. Here are some potential episode ideas & topics:
-Desiree convinces Ingrid she has a drinking problem so that they can start socializing with all the cool Park Slope Lesbians in AA (seriously, AA is a melting-pot of sexually ambiguous singles in various stages of recovery: check it out!)
-Ingrid and Desi try to convert our formerly gay friend who has fallen in love with a man back into a lesbian.
-The secret underground competitive vibe/ tension between gay men and gay women.
-Biking through the Hasidic Jewish neighborhood on your way to Williamsburg (sorry to all the non-Brooklynites, but this is a real part of life here that must be depicted in web series form!)
-Also more from Jeff, our open-minded but long-winded friend from outside the sex shop.
In addition to Season 2, Ingrid and I are writing a MOVIE, something fun, in the vein of "Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion," which will be shot within the next year. It will also act as our thesis project for NYU's graduate film school.
Before I go, I want to send a shout out to some very special people from high school that donated. Wow. What a huge shock and delight to see your names. I just had to mention that publicly, to all 160 backers that even though I was "very ugly and a little bit fat" back then, these SOBs still managed to show some support. Very classy.
Okay, bye everyone. KEEP POSTING ON FACEBOOK! IT MAKES SUCH A HUGE DIFFERENCE!
