      Hi James (& everyone else!)-

      The DVDs are slated for release at the end of May, following our US TV debut. We'll be sending them out shortly after that. Thanks for your response and we can't wait to get the discs out to everyone!

      I thought I filled out a survey, but I'm not sure. I don't see a way to go back and fill one out now. (I may be suffering from some sort of Kickstarter illiteracy.) If I didn't already fill out the survey, my info is: RIck Beyer, 34 Outlook Drive, Lexington MA, 02421. I got a chance to meet GP seven years ago when he was the speaker at our 25th Dartmouth reunion, and then partied with us til the wee hours...totally charming and wonderful in every way.

      Is the t-shirt 100% cotton, or are we talking more like a polyester / cotton blend?
