First off and most importantly, I've finally decided to take a stab at crowdfunding, specifically for a second season on my webseries, TOME! I'm looking to raise $15000 to create a total of 6 Episodes. At the time I'm posting this, we've already raised over a 3rd of the target budget thanks to the gracious folks who have donated in the last few days!
I'm SUPER grateful for the amazing support we've gotten so far. The rewards we're offering seem to be enticing enough, with the promise of a background character cameos, voice requests from many of the show's characters and an exclusive t-shirts! Just as a head's up, I'll be doing a Kirblog for tomorrow making some general announcements regarding my YouTube channel, as well as covering some basic info about the crowdfunding campaign, so if any of y'all have questions, I can certainly give some answers when I record it! Lemme know your thoughts and I'll provide support in any way I can! Sunday we'll also be starting the first of a five eBay auctions for background character cameos that have speaking lines! Keep an eye on the GoFundMe page for updates, but here's the basic schedule:
(ALL Auctions Start/End at 3 PM EST. Dates subject to change!)
SLOT #1 - Begins Sunday, May 4th/ Ends Wednesday, May 7th
SLOT #2 - Begins Wednesday, May 7th/ Ends Saturday, May 10th
SLOT #3 - Begins Saturday, May 10th/ Ends Tuesday, May 13th
SLOT #4 - Begins Tuesday, May 13th/ Ends Friday, May 16th
SLOT #5 - Begins Friday, May 16th/ Ends Monday, May 19th
Regarding some of the other stuff I'll be talking about on the Kirblog tomorrow, I've been keep consistent with updating my YouTube channel 4 times a week for quite a while now! First of all, my unofficial spin-off of "Did You Know Gaming?" has now reached almost 10 episodes!
"Did You Know Voice Acting?" has been fantastic, fun and easy to produce. I've got plenty more in the works, including three particular installments this month that all nicely coincide with each other; more on that tomorrow. Thursdays, I've mainly been updating with "re-runs" of TOME Episodes and Shorts, but I've also been adding in these fun little Anime-style "Next Episode" previews at the ends of each one. Also, with the release of each one, I've also been updating the official website with commentaries on the full Episode videos! We're up to 06 now, with 07 coming out next week!
I also started a little thing called "FLASH-back Friday", which fans of my old Newgrounds work will appreciate the most. Basically I'll re-uploading (in HD) a whole ton of my flash cartoons from the 2000's that helped spread around my name online for a long time. Stuff like Parody Rangers, Rawest Forest...and much more to come this summer!
Then finally, I've been updating each Saturday with Kirblogs as per the usual! Here's a recent one I did all about the recent "Zero Suit Samus controversy" that arose after the Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/WiiU Direct happened a while back (followed by my updated thoughts about new and upcoming stuff about the game).
That's all the major stuff for now, but as always, there's much more to come. Thanks for stickin' with me as usual, folks! Stay tuned and hope you enjoy what's in store!!
