A Reward Wish List, Part Three

We’re drumming up some blog cheer with a holiday wish list series: a list from each of us of our most coveted project rewards, essentially an invitation to cyber-window-shop, fantasize, and potentially impulse buy. Today’s contribution comes from community team member Cassie, who is not allowed to have nice things:

My mom bugs me to make a Christmas Wish List every year, and every year I totally forget or can’t think of anything under the pressure so I end up asking for boring, purely functional items (socks, tupperware, etc). This Reward Wish List is like my chance to finally dream big! Except I guess that all I dream about is pasta and pie. Hmm…

1. Finding Vivian Maier — A Feature Length Documentary Film

I’ve already waxed romantic about the work of Vivian Maier and the uniquely compelling story of her discovery, but I feel like the tale is incomplete until I can somehow see it in real life. This $10 reward isn’t an actual print, but getting a real-deal Vivian film spool is (honestly) even better, and the archive-loving nerd in me swoons at the mere prospect of obtaining such unusual historical paraphernalia.  If I were really ballin’, I’d throw in for the $5,000 reward: dinner with creators John and Anthony. Then I’d trick them into taking me on a tour of Vivian’s old neighborhood. Sneaky, sneaky!

2. Into the Woods — Music Media From the Pacific Northwest

To be honest, it was really hard to pick just one reward I wanted from this project. Everything sounds amazing — from the bacon and brie poptart sandwich (whhaaaaaat?) to the drum lesson from Lisa of Explode Into Colors (a favorite band) to to the scooter ride with Starfucker (it’s a band!) to the cute thank you note drawn with “our less dominant hand” — but in the end, it’s me we’re talking about, and a good meal always wins out. Awkward or not, the fastest way to my backing-heart is with a little food. Yums.

Did you read what I just said about food? Did you watch this project video? No, seriously, watch this project video. Even if you hate pasta, you will want to eat a lot of it after watching this video. Plus, I’m generally a sucker for secret family recipes, traditional Italian food, and really adorable accents (again — watch the video.) Ciao!

I know the title sounds ominous, but cheer up! For just 30 bucks you can score a photo of a cast-member dressed up and getting a pie in the kisser. And, let’s be honest, what else could you want? Well, maybe some pie…
