Have a question?
Hi, I just filled out my kickstarter form to get rid of it, but I already received the DVD. No need to send me another one! Thanks.
can i find the tsm t-shirt anywhere now?
The author of this comment has been deleted.
Any update on the remix project (releasing all the footage)? Would like to have a go with creating my own version..
Still nothing received - was told package had been sent early Jan. No response to further emails regarding this - feeling very betrayed.
Hello, I've sent a bunch of emails and still have not received a response. I pledged $25 and have received nothing yet. Can you tell me what's going on.
@Mitch ... cool just sent off another email.
@Janusz Gilewicz - You have email (and mail). Sorry about the wait, we resent another one.
@abigail thorndike - We have resent another one as well.
@everyone - if you haven't received it or heard from us yet, please email us at: orders [at] thespiritmolecule [dot] com Thank you!
I pledged 15$ 3.5 months ago and re-send to you my mailing address three times. I am in NYC and I do not understand why is taking so long to deliver . People in Finland got it. !!!
GOT MY PACKAGE LAST SAT !! thank you! thought the government had taken it for research or something :o ...
WAHOO! My poster arrived! It would have come sooner (9th Jan) but the PO held on to it while I was away... Thanks Team SM ;)
Love the printing! Any chance you guys might have sprinkled a little DMT in the ink to "christen" them? How cool that would have been :D
I still haven't received mine.. I live in VA...? Sent my address on time.. and re-sent the address recently.
Watched the movie yesterday with friends - loved the editing!
Some more thoughts about Goodsearch: a couple of years ago me and a few other guys managed to raise $35.29 for a certain organization in a handful of months with a peak of $11.00 per month by just using the search engine (easy to switch to Google after each search, if you don't get good results). Now look at how many Facebook fans TSM has: 70,000. One person can easily reach $1 for searches per month so it could be $70,000 in a month for Cottonwood Research Foundation. I don't live in the States, so I can't buy a new computer from Amazon, but a purchase like that going through Goodshop wouldn't be "micro" anymore. Cottonwood was entered into Goodsearch by Strassman himself.
Finally received the DVD and t-shirt (Finland).
It's not dodgy or adsense: it's a way to directly fund Cottonwood's DMT research by doing your regular internet searching and shopping through Goodsearch/Goodshop. The search is crap Yahoo, but they have all the biggest online stores in Goodshop. So next time when you buy something online, remember to go through Goodshop and do the microcharity thing.
@ Siika - What's the dodgy adsense link about?
@Samuel: Yes - all of my contact details were in order. But mine was an international shipment [to Canada]. I got it over a week ago.
Thanx Andrew/Mitch...it"s all good. I hate to see people still waiting... frustrating as hell...i know. Late or not, they are good on the promise.
I have still not received my DVD or poster. Please let me know what is going on. I have been looking forward to this for months and am starting to worry that I'll never receive what I payed for.
hey geo, just out of curiousity did you have you address in on time?
I think we may be some of the last to get the package. There are volunteers that are sending these out to both the KickStarters and just people buying off the website. The producers are on the road. I do know that the poster had to be shipped separately and was stored in the post office. Also because of Christmas time holidays, there would have been a mail traffic jam at customs and the post offices etc.
It would be nice if the producers of this film would post an update on their progress and explain a little about their challenges which I am sure there are some. Remaining silent does no one any good.
Wish mine had come yesterday or three days ago. such a long time to wait...
I also got my DVD and poster yesterday. Excellent stuff! Thanks. Especially love the CG animation by The Electric Sheep weaving all of the interviews and experiences together.
just wanted to make clear that I have recieved my package yesterday! the postal service took ONE month, so its obvs. not your fault! thanks!
Here's an easy way to support Strassman's DMT research even if you don't have any extra money: http://www.goodsearch.com/…
I purchased on kickstarter after attending the premiere in NY. I still have not received my DVD. I am in philadelphia. ??? Any chance it will be coming in 2011??
THANK YOU GUYS!!!
Remember what Terence McKenna said about accelerating novelty or complexity? That is what happened.
Guys what is going on? I spent (for a student) alot of money for your project. I had the deep feeling that this community should be one! To fight the fucked up structures and society out there! And I thought you are to be trusted! I still think that I can trust you, you probably got alot of stuff going on but I really need a message of what happened with my 50 bucks?!
OK, well, I got my DVD today, I assume it's a replacement as there's no Poster:( I've retracted my amazon log because the guys have followed thru, nice production, very well printed case, I'm happy, shame about the poster and the whereabouts of my other package though
Well, in the meantime, we can try cracking the WikiLeaks Insurance File:
Okay, so its a 256 encryption. A user named wikidocs gave part of the password out on youtube.
"Wikileaks insurance.aes256 file - please refer to legend in previous E-mail. This is for the people who already have the encryped docs and a legend was sent out to use with the password. This is only one part of the password. Don't take it for face value. For example a series of numbers, i.e 12115, is a number or word. Hope this helps."
An insightful post from a user well-acquainted with AES encryption says:
Quote: "please note that passwords work in a key-value pair format most likely.
That means that what was on the youtube site is half the password. That key is used as a seed to create the actual password. So what you are looking for are two passwords. The seed password and the actual password. This is from my previous work with AES encryption."
has anyone out there in australia got their dvd yet?
"first thing that you learn is that you always have to wait"........Lou Reed
Wow! I guess I'm not alone. I just expected the projected arrival dates to be accurate. I don't mean any disrespect or hate. I just wanna know WHAT's UP?! Drop me a line. Tell me it's late, you spaced sending it, you got a flat.......NOT a FORM LETTER. ANYTHING?! . ..................still waiting...........................................................zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Why am I juggling with the negative posts? Well, there's only a few of us posting here - so why not more positive feedback. Demis and everybody else waiting for the pot to boil - just do your daily activities and forget about it. And one day you will get the video magic in your mail box and will be blown away. You will see that Mitch and company have put in an enormous effort to RAISE UP people. You will see. Anyways, if you noticed from a backer several comments ago, you will see that Mitch offered to send another DVD in the mail - shortly before the person just received their copy in the mail. It's a bigger project than one might think.
Well, I've submitted a complaint for my money back from Amazon Payments. Thanks Mitch for LETTING DOWN people. I've sent TWO emails and gotten no response. I don't care to hear "wait patiently" - it's been nearly TWO MONTHS and still nothing.
Yeah, I really don't know. I do not really have a good sense of time, so I am not as aware of these things as other people are. And actually, no, I do not have my DVD yet. I said I had, but in reality I had just watched the torrent copy. I warned that it would happen and it did - it's just a free teaser for the full DVD. Plus it will be way better quality on an HDTV. I mentioned Amazon, because there were many credit card errors. I am sure there could me a more efficient set-up for things like this in the future.
SO, I take it you've received your DVD. And why should I blame amazon. THE PICTURES CLEARLY SHOWED Mitch and crew packing and sending goods. As for experience goes, just about every one has bought something off of the internet. Ebay, Amazon, Craigslist (ETC) ALL give a shipping notification AND proper instructions. I'm just upset because I backed this flick from the beginning, saw it in the theater, met Mitch, and feel a little PERSONAL SERVICE would be nice. Not a form letter, vaguely saying "we may OR may not have your address...we may OR may not have shipped your order."C'MON! they have my email...be specific.
It is amusing to me that we all expect professional distribution from a handful of really busy people that have never done something like this before. It is not only patience that is needed, it's understanding as well. This way was the only way the DVD could have been released in any way whatsoever. Usually some fat cat producer forks out the cash to get it produced and distributed. In the mainstream, that is. However, the quality of the documentary itself is excellent. If a peeved backer ripped this off already on the torrent sites, you might as well grab it. You're going to get your copies sooner or later anyways. Mitch has posted the email to contact regarding shipments. They do not reply to these comments. Also, they probably have many emails which would take time to respond to. If anything, we should be peeved at Amazon.com.
i agree with Chas. i am in WA state, and have also sent my address 3 times. Please send notification if problems arise with shipment. I am considering contacting my credit card company to request a refund or to stop payment on this project. I am sincerely disappointed that I paid to back a project, and for a pre purchase on a DVD that i could rip from a torrent suite by now.
STILL WAITING...........Sent my Address 3 times. I LIVE IN CALIFORNIA.WTF!! Shipping from Europe is faster. Could you be specific about WHO's ADDRESS you need and give SHIPMENT NOTIFICATIONS for those you don't. PLEASE. thanks
