Update #2

More Rewards Added! (Wasn't life good enough already? Now it's better!)

2 comments

Greetings!

Thanks to everyone who has made this endeavor a rousing success so far... we've almost made it to 50,000% of our stated goal of $1. Your interest and support is meaningful and heart-warming.

As a reward, I've decided to add rewards. (That's a weird sentence. But I'm a weird sentence maker, so I think everything is normal. Ish.) 

There is now a $25 reward that results in your receiving an individualized Youtube minute-long video, and a $50 reward that results in a three-minute long one.

If you went for one of the lower donation options but want to switch, you can! If you want to tell all your friends and brag to all your enemies, you can! (I recommend maybe doing the former but probably not the latter.)

In any event, mainly thanks! And partially you're welcome.

I love you all unless that's weird, in which case I only love some of you (the ones for whom it's weird? or some unknown subset including both weird and not weird).

You're the best. Thanks again.

PS a bonus reward that everyone gets right now: a few anagrams of "Hang Out With Me"...
1) A win, methought.
2) Humane. Tight. Ow!
3) Taught one whim.
4) Awing the mouth.
5) Magneto wit, huh?

      I don't know if the other backers are reading this, but I did, and I like it. I like it so much I am turning it into one of the FAQs, so feel free to go check out both my paraphrasing and answering of this question over there. And thanks for your support and thoughtful participation!

      Hey, not to be ungrateful for all the options, but would you be willing to put up other sorts of reward options? Let me spitball, so to speak.

      Personally, the differing thank you methods are not an incentive for me, because I don't like that kind of public attention. Is there any chance you could have like, say, a $5 (or any $) option with a reward like: You get to submit one word once the Kickstarter ends, which will be incorporated into one episode.

      So then I could submit, like, "narwhal" and look forward to hearing Myq riff on it. Just an idea. Are the other 40 backers reading this?

    23 backers Limited (2147483624 left of 2147483647)

    If you donate one dollar, you will receive a thank you. This thank you will be delivered in spirit, or possibly in email, or even more possibly via Kickstarter message directly from comedian Myq Kaplan's Kickstarter account, curated by the aforementioned Myq Kaplan, who has typed these very words to assure their validity and authenticity. (Thank you for reading them... that's an advance on your future thank you.)

    Estimated delivery:
  • Pledge $5 or more
    You selected

    7 backers Limited (193 left of 200)

    If you donate $5, you may submit a word to be incorporated into an episode of the podcast. You will receive the satisfaction of having made a notable change in the world, at least with respect to this podcast. PS If you donate to one of the higher levels, you may exercise this option as well if you choose. (This new reward was suggested in a comment by a backer, and seemed like a fine idea. So here it is.)

    Estimated delivery:
  • Pledge $10 or more
    You selected

    32 backers Limited (2147483615 left of 2147483647)

    If you donate ten dollars, you will receive a thank you on an episode of "Hang Out With Me." If you want. Your name will be pronounced as correctly (or as incorrectly) as possible, and so will the words "thank you" or "thanks" or "word" or some other variation thereof.

    Estimated delivery:
  • Pledge $25 or more
    You selected

    7 backers Limited (93 left of 100)

    If you donate $25, Myq Kaplan (the comedian, podcaster, and person responsible for these words being typed into your face right now) will make a Youtube video (let's say around a minute long) dedicated specifically to thanking you for that $25 or more. PS You will also get the on-air shout-out of the $10 reward, if you desire it.

    Estimated delivery:
  • Pledge $50 or more
    You selected

    1 backer Limited (49 left of 50)

    If you donate $50, Myq Kaplan (the human being, robot-seeming, and person beaming these words into your brain right now) will make an even LONGER Youtube video than the $25 people get (let's say around three minute long, triple the time for only double the money) dedicated specifically to thanking you for that $50 or more. PS You will also get the on-air shout-out of the $10 reward, if you desire it.

    Estimated delivery:
  • Pledge $75 or more

    1 backer Limited (4 left of 5)

    If you donate $75, you can have an individualized 16-bar rap song created specifically for you, based on your name (or whatever, if you're in witness protection maybe), by comedian/rapper extraordinaire Zach Sherwin AKA MC Mr. Napkins (whose work you can see at www.mrnapkins.com). Zach is a friend and musical contributor to the show, currently working on what will be the theme song. Sound good? If you get one of these, it WILL sound good.

    If you donate ninety-nine dollars, you may come into the building where our studio is located while we record an episode of "Hang Out With Me." You will be able to listen through the door and receive a thank you on air, and you can yell a response that maybe will get picked up by the microphones. Conversely, for one more dollar (see $100 reward), you may enter the room and talk into a microphone.

    If you donate one-hundred dollars, you may come into the studio while we record an episode of "Hang Out With Me" and be thanked in person as part of an episode. You have to get to the studio on your own, though. I mean, we'll tell you where it is. It's not like a math puzzle or a treasure hunt with a pirate map. Or maybe it is, but way easier. We'll tell you what X equals.

    If you donate one-thousand dollars, you may come into our studios to be a guest on "Hang Out With Me" for the entirety of one episode, during which you may be thanked (or not, you get to decide). We reserve the right to edit the conversation, but mostly for things like if you yelled racial epithets the whole time, in which case your thousand dollars will have been very helpful in the overtime costs for our editor. (We also reserve the right to determine what things are similar to racial epithets, conceptually. We also reserve the right to reserve other rights, like a genie granting wishes for more wishes. To ourselves. Genie's prerogative.)

    Estimated delivery:

    0 backers Limited (25 left of 25)

    If you donate ten-thousand dollars, we will travel to your home (provided it is located somewhere within the continental united states) and record an episode of the podcast from there (if you want us to), featuring you and one other person of your choosing as guests on the show. (The other person has to be a willing participant. We are not really genies, despite implying otherwise above. Though we wish we were.)

    If you donate $10,000 but do not want anything in return, you win the satisfaction of knowing that you had $10,000, and probably still have more than that remaining (otherwise you have made a poor business decision).
