      Hi - I never got my reward (which was a bumper sticker and a download of something?) - I mean, I would have funded it anyway, but. The reward would be nice. :-)

      The Tugg process is almost an entrepreneurial process. I hosted one in my city and had almost 60 in attendance. It's attributed to contacts, social networking etc, not Matt or the cast swooping in to do the work for you. The theatre helps a bit if need be, but you need to almost force your contacts to go, make it an event, essentially if you host it, you are the backer, the publicist etc. I think you missed the point of what was supposed to happen. It's not an "if you build it they will come venture". I'm sure Matt and his team would agree!

      hey, hey folks!! Sorry for any frustration on the rewards front. We can only get the DVDs out as quickly as the distributor gets them to us! We should have them this week and Whitwater will get them out ASAP.

      We LOVE you and are so humbled by your support. Apologies we are not better at this!!

      So I am going over things and I just wanted to say I feel a bit unappreciated. I know people are going to disagree. However I found the tugg screening process to be quite a mess and my town never got a screening. I worked hard and got no help from Matt. The dvd is out and I am sad that I helped to make that happen but have to wait a few weeks maybe more to get that dvd. I am just saying if I preorder a dvd or game from a store I can get it the day of release or within a day. It just feels like as a backer of this I am unappreciated. Agree, disagree, that is how I feel.

      Matthew Lillard has always been hilarious and has single handedly cheered me up during many gloomy days, but he also has a very genuine and sincere spirit about him and I think this is very evident for anyone looking at this project. SLC Punk really meant something to me and I feel strongly that Fat Kid will mean something for a whole new audience.

      If I had any money in my bank account besides what I need for gas I would have pledged more. Thank you for everything Matt.
