Surface copy turned up in the UK yesterday and looks great. Thanks!
Got my stuff in the mail today!! Beautiful! Glorious! Cool! Perfect! Thank youthankyouthankyouthankyou!
My package arrived in Australia, everything looks great, thanks
My package arrived in today's mail, safe and sound! The bonus prints are amazing. Thanks!
Got mine yesterday from Canada Post in great shape. Thanks to everyone involved
I just received my Cerebus Archive Number 4 prints from Canada Post today. (Niagara Region if your asking)
Thanks to Dave and everyone involved. It looks great.
I got a shipping notice from Canada Post as well.
Hmm. I've received a shipping notice from Canada Post about an item from Kitchener. I can't think it's anything other than this but I didn't get one for CAN1-3.
Hi. Still haven't gotten any of my cool Cerebus Archive No. 4 stuff. I check the mail and my front door every day (except Sundays!!), but still no sign of Cerebus on any new postage anywhere. Curious if all is on track and I just need to be patient (which is understandable) or if some mix up may have occurred. Just checkin in. -
Everything came in great condition, thank you so much. And I will eagerly await for the next campaign.
Update on this and CAN5? please?
Nothing here either, and I note that we're late to start CAN5 as well. Clearly there's some unavoidable delay but some news would be welcome.
Would you be able to provide us an update on if the portfolio's have been mailed off or of any unforeseen delay?
Hi. Should I be concerned that I still haven't received anything in the mail? Just curious. :)
Hows the shipping going?
The portfolios will begin shipping in a couple of weeks. There are a few things like Bonus Prints and Postcards to be signed, then we'll be assembling the packages and shipping.
Have you got a forecast for when things might start shipping?
I got the Collected Letters. Volume 3 in my email. Thanks, John.
Glen - just sent you a message with the download link.
Tim G & Tim E - sorry, it is too late to add items after the funding period closes.
I have not received the Collected Letters Volume 3 PDF. It was one of the rewards I requested on the survey I filled out last December 2015.
What can I do?
Can we still add bonus prints? Missed that bit. Thanks
Checking for an update.... hmmm... nothing since November 21. I guess the wait continues.
Been awhile since any updates (I could have missed it though) - any word?
Whats happening? How is Dave?
Hey there, I'm trying to fill out my survey, but honestly I don't remember what I intended to use as an add-on. I know how much I was charged, but I have no idea why I was charged that amount, and for some reason, I don't have a receipt or email from kickstarter about it.
Stupid question time: I've taken the basic pledge to get the portfolio. Is it too late to add PDFs and/or prints to my pledge?
So... when might we backers expect to receive our post-project survey questionnaires? Just curious!
Oh, dear! Just arrived late...
Well hope to see again in the CAN 5.
Greetings from Spain.
That's a wrap! Drive safely everyone!
2 minutes til your gone or just 2 minutes.
I SAY - Nothing, because there's literally 30 seconds left.
I'd say have a little sympathy for an Omnipotent Being who knows He's right and still has to watch His creations suffer AT THEIR OWN HANDS because they just won't TRUST Him. Nothing He can do.
Sorry I'm posting so late, I was with my family looking at some Terrier Puppies in Walsingham - Ontario. Really happy to see you push over $31,000. Thanks!
Four minutes. Thanks EVERYONE!
What an extremely interesting thought. The first paragraph, that is. I'm going to have to chew that thought over for a while. I can't think or type as fast as you, and my window of time for discussing this is quickly coming to a close.
Hmmmm. That second paragraph though, not a lot you can say when 'we don't know what happens when we die' is the end of the sentence. and not knowing almost seems like ignorance. But then, that just goes back to the rebel spirits trying to get away from God as fast as they can. Well, sure. When you put it that way it's a lose lose. It's almost like saying, don't do anything, because We aren't God, and we can't possibly understand the mind of God. Okay... well, that's it then, and I'll happily leave it there for now. But this conversation is by no means over.
Five minutes to go!
"date stone" that was supposed to be. God allows things like Paris to happen as a warning, I think -- "Better this, now, then what would come later if this DIDN'T happen." If Paris is the "soft option" then things are getting Really. Hard.
As it says in the Koran, "God will not wrong you so much as the husk on a dates tone."
Just consider the world that he created for you as an atheist KNOWING you would be an atheist. All the pleasures he's given you to enjoy knowing you would turn your back on him. The word in Koine Greek for "God's grace" translates more directly as "undeserved kindness".
We're only partway through. God, I think, created all this to allow us to explore ALL of the possibilities. I think we're the rebel spirits that couldn't get away from God fast enough because we were convinced we could do SOOOOOOO much better than He could and he engineered a way -- the Big Bang -- to get us all the way out here and prove to ourselves that we're wrong.
He was and is right, I think.
We miss the point that we don't know what happens when we die. God does know. For all we know those people who died in Paris are ecstatic with their reward because they died Making A Point that He knew needed to be made. "In my Father's house are many mansions."
Thanks for letting me bend your ear, Dave. It's always a pleasure.
Well, time to go. Got soldiers In the field and they're not going to train themselves!
Cheers and one last congratulations to you, Mr. Sim.
"Thus endeth the experiment in going out in public". I think we need to have honest exchanges of viewpoint and I don't see that in society. Too much isn't working to keep acting as if doing everything the same way IS going to work.
But, I was thrown out of society so anything I say is completely beside the point.
What do you think the short term affect and long term affect would be if we found out religion (all of it) were completely false. What if we didn't have these people 'fighting for the cause' What if we didn't have nations that have been warring for thousands of years because of religious beliefs. I feel, in a way, that perhaps we would all be better off without religion. The questions of the great unknown would remain the same. So what's the problem? Would you stop trying to be a better person if you no longer believed in God. I'm trying to be a better person and I'm not putting my faith in the hands of a deity in the great beyond. What a F----d up world we live in.
You don't consciously kill civilians in general and women and children in particular. It's just flat-out dishonourable.
The only exception is when you're being attacked from BEHIND women and children to keep you from shooting back.
Sorry about the 'B**** Comment. forgot not to swear in the forum.
John - on the refugee thing, I don't know. Our new prime minister is admitting 25,000 before the end of the year.
It reminded me of Chester Brown after 9/11 saying that he thought we should wait and see if they do something like that again instead of overreacting.
We have to accept that there are people who think that's a logical way forward.
If the West DOESN'T do anything about it, in a way it's very...Christian. Turn the other cheek. Which would be the Most Christian thing the society formerly known as Christendom has done in a long while.
All of the G7 leaders except for Cameron are pacifists by nature, I think.
I think that would be perceived as insensitive if you hadn't said in that way 'everyone who went... to prove how hard they were' unlike my co-worker who said 'they brought it on themselves. Paris with open arms. That's what they get' But you know, he's from the old country and it's just an opinion anyways.
Killing people doesn't seem justified in any context of morality. That's where I think their biblical interpretations bite them in the ass. What religious point of view post New Testament advocates this?
I don't think not drinking (which I had to quit myself, recently) and not listening to music is 'wimpy' in the defense of God.
I think honestly, that the only goal man kind should be achieving is trying to be a better human being than they were yesterday. Construction instead of destruction.
Even if you're in a weak position, mentally ill, financially defunct or otherwise, I think the struggle to NOT do these bombings is probably more of a fight towards entering God's Grace.
I mean, how hard is it to give up and strap a bomb on as opposed to being a productive member of society and trying to solve real world issues? Can it not be done?
I don't think you have to be God to make an objective opinion on beliefs of right and wrong in regards to actions. This isn't someone doing something to one person and suffering the consequences. This is a GROUP who have made a decision to do awful things to people that have nothing to do with them personally.
I think it's the weakest kind of person to kill people who pose no immediate threat to you. Tell me you want to kill me and I'll invite you over to my house. We'll see how it goes for you from there is my mentality. Fight someone who is willing to fight you. Don't be a little bitch and kill unarmed, unassuming victims in cafe's soccer games, or even metal concerts.
