      It's pretty impressive all the people from all over the country and the world that contributed. Way to go!

    2. Brian Hess on April 26, 2012

      You and your family put so much time in doing this I think we are all happy to pitch in. Also your making a few bucks on the deal would be good too.

    3. Janet Houck on April 24, 2012

      Congrats! Can't wait to see pictures and video of this!

    4. Roberto Suarez on April 24, 2012

      Congratulations Scott and the FrogPants family. I hope to make it to Nerdtacular in the future.

      Also, I would like to add, that the video is just so funny. Loved it. You've got to make videos like that more often Scott, haha.

    6. Chris Privitere on April 18, 2012

      So I wanted to point out that on one of the TMS episodes a couple weeks ago, Scott mentioned that people who donate the dollar amount for a prize that is no longer available will still get that prize. I haven't seen Scott make an update officially announcing that here though. So I wanted to share that with you that you should still be able to do things like get the swag back if you donate $125. Hopefully, Scott will make an actual update to confirm that for people.

      I can't wait to see the Legends of my entire podcast collection. Congrats to Scott and all who work with Frogpants on this monumental Kickstarter.

      I'm so glad I finally came into some money to be able to support the Frogpants cause! I'm another person in the club of "wish I could be there but can't," but I'm happy to help via Kickstarter. I'm so happy to see how many people have chipped in to blow Scott's original pledge goal out of the water!

    9. Louis Stephen Batty Jr on April 12, 2012

      I would love to come out there for this awesome event, but sadly I live in Georgia and that is much too far (read expensive) for me to come out there. I hope everyone that is able to make it has a great time and always remember to keep the awesomeness that is you Scott.

      I'd love to come, but I'm leading a Nuclear Regulatory Commission Inspection at a nuclear power plant. But here, take some money. Always happy to support your work.

    11. Brandon Flatgard on April 3, 2012

      At the end of the video I was waiting for someone to say "Watch out for snakes!"... old MST3K joke.

    12. Kevin Moon on April 3, 2012

      I would like my donation to be in Canadian Hole money. Love the show though.

    13. Kerry Chai on April 3, 2012

      Woo! Lookie there! That's a helluva testimony to what you do, Scott. Congratulations, and thanks for giving me the opportunity to give back a little! ... See if you feel like saying the same about me AFTER the event... ;-) -Cleeo

      I can't make it this year, but am so happy to be able to contribute. Thank you Frogpants for the hours of awesome entertainment that gets me through my week! I can't wait for my DVD and swag bag :)

    15. Ryansox on April 2, 2012

      Anyone driving from Chicago or passing through it on the way to Nerdtacular. The only way I can go is if I got a ride. Would pay for gas :)

      Nooooo sold out of the legendary heroes!!!! Oh well. Maybe Scott will make additional LH packages available. *crosses fingers*

    18. Scott Johnson 6-time creator on March 30, 2012

      I continue to be have my mind blown by you people. SO grateful for you help with this. Can't say enough...

    19. Steven Wagy on March 30, 2012

      Boom! Number 321! You can't get any better than that... well you can.... Don't spoil this for me! My question is If "Then you can eat RICE!" was a dragon shout would stock pots full of rice rain from the sky, would a ton of rice spew from your mouth at your opponent, or would the opponent turn into rice? Its questions like these that keep me up at night.

    20. Sae Ra Germaine on March 29, 2012

      Really wish I could be there but I'm all the way in Australia. I'm more than happy to pledge money to this, everyone in the Frogpants community have kept me smiling and laughing. Enjoy Nertacular 2012 everyone! I'm sure I'll be listening from afar :-)

      I wish I could come, but it's a long way from outback Australia...but I'm happy to give some support for all the podcasts that make me laugh every day. Keep it up, and keep it audio! Thanks Scott and all the Frogpants team.

    22. François Wildeman on March 28, 2012

      Helping fund the event is the least we can do as a thank you for the hours of entertainment you give us.!!!

      I was already strongly considering contributing to this kickstarter as a thanks for all your hard work producing my favorite podcasts. That was until I saw a doppleganger had already contributed. Not wanting to be shown up by a false me, the decision was easy. Love the show(s) though!

    24. Janet Houck on March 27, 2012

      Both my husband and I love the podcasts you give us for free. You're our morning show, our wow information/commentary show, our swtor show, our movie show... We feel you and all of the podcasting frogpants family are a big part of our lives. :) Helping out Nerdtacular is the least we can do.

      FrogPants has provided me so much free entertainment that it's a crime I haven't given back yet. I hope that total keeps going up and some awesome stuff comes out of this. Can't wait for my mouse pad and print. It's about time I've decorated with some sweet artwork. Thanks for everything Scott and company.

      You already have a lot of my awake time.
      Now you got my money too...
      I'm addicted, I know.
      Make this event something to remember.

    27. Frank Santiago on March 27, 2012

      Still not sure if I'll be able to attend in person, but thrilled to have the opportunity to help out.
      Thanks for all the hours of entertainment Frogpants has brought to my ear-holes.

    29. Don Adair on March 27, 2012

      I wish I could make it down for Nerdtacular (still going to try) but at least I can do this to give back and show my appreciation for the Frogpants community that you have built.

      Was glad to back N12, living in England means expensive airfare so I'll look forward to the DVD

    31. Mary Ducette on March 27, 2012

      Even though I can't attend, I'm so excited to still be a part of N12. Scott, not sure if you realize how much you give to us, I am happy I can give a little bit back to the Frogpants community. Thanks so much!

      Pete on March 27, 2012

      As another Aussie who can't attend, I'd like to say thanks for the opportunity to feel included in N12 and to say thank you for all the shows on the Frogpants network!

    33. Mark Isbell on March 27, 2012

      Thank you for giving your fans an opportunity to give back in appreciation for the network, and all that you do. Even though I won't be able to attend I know my fellow tadpoolers will have a blast, and I am glad to be able to support Nerdtacular. This is a small donation for daily entertainment!

      Hope this goes some way towards thanking you for all the great content on the Frogpants Network. As another Aussie I can't attend but look forward the DVD. Love the show though.

    35. James McGinnis on March 26, 2012

      Have been a fan since ELR . You've given so much free content to the community. While I could only afford a small donation, I hope this helps you and the frogpants community have a Nertacular to remember! You rock Scott!

      This past year has definitely not been kind to the Turpster. Poor fella.

    37. Alan Webb

      Love all your shows Scott. Would love to make it but living in Australia makes it harder. At least I can donate to the cause.

      Kenneth Herrell on March 26, 2012

      Gave as much as i could! Love the shows though.

    39. lorigga on March 26, 2012

      Thank you Scott! Would donate more but I'm a lowly grad student, I swear, when I land a decent paying job I will contribute something adequate for all the years of excellent programming you've provided.

    40. Ryansox on March 26, 2012

      Thank you Scott for Frogpants. You, your shows, and the other hosts have changed my life. I don't know what I would be doing without listening to all your wonderful shows. I will try and make it to nerdtacular but if not I will just use the DVD to view the event :)

    41. Kim Price on March 26, 2012

      You are da best Scott!

      Thanks for 3+ years of Frogpantery goodness. Hope all the Nerdtacularites enjoy the festivities, also make sure Turpster gets home safe, the Uk just isn't the same when he's gone x

      Can't wait to see everyone at Nerdtacular 2012. Scott - thanks so much for helping this community to be such a great community!

    44. Nicole Rioux Davis on March 26, 2012

      I'm still not sure if I'll be able to make it or not, but now I will have a ticket just in case. And if I can't make it, I'll be supporting a group of people who bring me simple happiness every day.

    45. Kelsey Todd on March 26, 2012

      I love everything Johnson related.

    46. Krzysztof Danek on March 26, 2012

      I've been enjoying Frogpants podcasts for years now, countless hours of fun offered for free. Though I won't be able to come it feels right to be able to contribute :)

    47. Jon Moore on March 26, 2012

      Can't wait! It's going to be a very special event. Looking forward to meeting you all in June!

      I bought a ticket knowing I can't come just to say that Frogpants and AIE are like a family to me!

      I am so glad that Scott's dream of Nerdtacular is coming true for another year! So glad to be a part of it and can't wait to see everyone soon!
