    MUSIC TASTE MAKER: Wow, you must be a huge fan of Sam and Kurt. Such a huge fan that you probably know what the best songs are to cover. Now, you get to put your knowledge to the test. Sam or Kurt will give you a call, and together you'll figure out a new cover for the channel. Normally, this decision is made by a super-secret coalition hiding in an underground lair, but today, that is you.

    Of course, you'll also get an invitation to the concert, the Twitter shout-out, early access to the digital album download (secret track included), email updates, DVD, t-shirt, poster and signed physical copy of the album.

    HOLD YOUR DONATION IN YOUR HANDS! Producing the high-quality music videos we're known for is expensive. Thanks to some neat tricks (copyright 2012 Sam and Kurt) we can make them for much less than the record companies, but they still cost $$$. As our thanks for helping us make the videos you love, we'll send you a signed prop from one of the videos for this album. As an extra thank you, we'll give you a video call on Skype, Google+ or Facetime to say hi and show you how far your support goes to helping us produce high-quality content. You'll also get the Twitter shout-out, early access to the digital album download + exclusive track, email updates, DVD, t-shirt, poster and signed physical copy of the album. Just our way of saying thanks for all your support! Note: international shipping is dependent on the size and weight of props. Some of these might be pretty big :1

    SUPER-SECRET LIVE-STREAMING SHOW: You don't know it yet (ok, now you know it), but we're planning an incredible series of live-streaming shows with several amazing artists in the near future. Very near. The space is small, so you'll be one of a handful of people in the studio, watching as we make YouTube history before your eyes. You'll get to meet the cast and crew and get an inside look into how a live show is created. After the concert, grab a meal with Sam and Kurt on us. You must provide your own transportation to sunny Los Angeles, CA.

    Of course, you'll also get the Twitter shout-out, early access to the digital album download + exclusive track, email updates, DVD, t-shirt, poster and signed physical copy of the album. Chances are, you'll get a lot more signatures and photos while you're here! We can't wait to meet you!!

    THE EXECUTIVE PASS: Words can not describe how much we appreciate your help, but we'll try anyway. As the top contributor to our album, you should probably get to know us. We'll fly you out to Los Angeles (within the US, international flights will be covered up to the cost of an average LA-NYC round-trip flight) and put you up in a hotel for three nights. You'll spend your time in Los Angeles on adventures with Sam and Kurt: Spend the day in Disneyland or Universal Studios, take a tour of an actual studio and check out Sam and Kurt's and explore all this city has to offer. Of course, you'll get access to the concert, an extra-special shout-out on Twitter, early access to the digital download (secret track included), email updates, the DVD, the t-shirt, the poster and the signed physical copy of the album, but you probably already knew that.
