Save Nathaniel's Life!

So readers... I've been wrestling with the site & blog these past couple of years. The Experience keeps growing and threatening to devour me whole (this post Oscar exhaustion will pass...I hope). I love doing it, don't get me wrong. But it sucks up gargantuan amounts of time and time is money. I'm going to have to cut down if I can't figure out a way to make it work. So, a March fundraiser is in order: see how much this is worth to y'all.

Don't click away... cool info ahead

If everyone who read the blog faithfully donated $10 for each year they'd done so, I'd be a wealthy man ...but I'm still a starving artist (well not literally) Usually when you donate to a person or group it's for services already rendered. In this case I'll actually give you something in addition to what'cha already got.

  • Donate $anything and if you'd like (some people are shy) I'll give you a personal shout out on the blog: a "friends of the experience" mini-profile with a note about your favorite film or website or myspace page or whatever... just let me know
  • Donate $40 or more and I'll review one specific film or performance that you request (the film must be available for rental on DVD or currently playing in NYC. No guarantee on how quickly --depends on how many donations arrive)
  • Donate $75 or more and you can demand a specific twofer like this.
  • Donate $lots (some people got bank, don't judge) and shoot me an e-mail with a request and instructions on how I can become your personal loveslave how to win your continued patronage.
DONATE HERE (click the "make a donation" button when you get there)
...and thank you to everyone who donated in the past. Thank you again

UPDATE: This fundraiser has raised $1000 so far (thank you!). $2000 is the immediate goal. If the number can get up to $5000 the extra will go toward funding travel and lodging expenses for film festival coverage.

You should have purposed this a hella of a lot sooner. You've given me (and a hella of a lot of others)so much cinematic joy. I've donated in the past and another one is on the way.

IT'S THE LEAST I/WE CAN DO!

i forgot to mention that i shaved my head for my Oscar photo but I didn't really intend for my bald noggin to be as shiny as Oscars. so: embarrassing... although the twin effect is OK i guess.

Wait... so the loveslave thing is OFF the table?

You knew I was going there, didn't you?

NATHANIEL R said...

it's only off the table in theory. Basically make your best offer ;)

Made a donation, I can't stand to lose my Film Experience!

Wow. And I actually have money now.

My birthday is in two days (YES!!!!!!!!!!!,) and I've already gotten a lot of money. I don't know if this is a sign from god that I should donate. But how do you? Obviously I can't PayPal, so... can you accept checks? I don't know.

I could pay $40 just to make you see Dear Frankie! But I don't know.

But I really hope you reach your goal!! I love this thing.

J.D. Judge said...

Oh, and isn't this, basically, whoring?

NATHANIEL R said...

it's the oldest profession! so it must be doing something right.

Kamikaze Camel said...

I think it's one of those knock offs. The ones that hold a wreath instead of a sword.

I have one! It sits atop my computer desk.

NATHANIEL R said...
