A new kickstarter project has been started by Michael Reaves, the multi-award winning writer for Gargoyles and Batman: The Animated Series, among other things. A vampire noir horror movie starring Neil Gaiman and Amber Benson (Tara from Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, among other things), and a companion comic drawn by Tom Mandrake, this project is aiming for $50,000 before June 14.
Go. Fund. It.
At least go and check out the kickstarter video. Aside from just looking blatantly awesome, it shows how much the people involved truly care about this project, especially Michael Reaves himself, who says “I just want to get this movie made”. Neil Gaiman, one of the most successful (and in my opinion, best) fantasy writers alive, personally endorses the script, and says that “there’s nobody else I would act for”. Most of the people involved will not be drawing a salary.
Seriously, this looks like one of those rare movies which will be fantastic, well thought out, interesting, and surprising. Plus, there are a bunch of great rewards, including digital downloads of the movie (when it’s done, that is. Sadly no time manipulation is involved), posters, DVDs, and a download of the original script! Not to mention, vampires could definitely do with a bit of a comeback from the deep dark pit of lameness into which they seem to have been dropped recently. I mean come on? An ancient monster (which may or may not be sex-on-legs), which hides in the night and kills you by devouring only your blood? They should be the undisputed height of cool!
Peace Out and Fund Fangs

So still in the vein of these last few Doctor Who-related geeky posts…but with a little bit of a gay spin.
Have you seen this YouTube show?! It’s a bit silly, a bit of a waste of time, and just a little bit old – but if you’re anything like me, you’ll also find it just a bit hilarious. The Daleks were clearly gay…I see it now.
Watch the full collection of episodes on YouTube.
I don’t know who made this. I don’t know where they are, or what they do, or who they love.
But whoever you are, you are Amazing.
(For those who don’t know (though you SHOULD), this is a Doctor Who reference).
Peace out and Make Badges!
