The DVDs have arrived!

"The new phone book is here!  The new phone book is here!" - Steve Martin as Navin Johnson in The Jerk

Totally not staged at all - this is exactly as it naturally occurred.
It was with great excitement last night when my upstairs neighbour called and told me he was home.  Rob happens to be the manufacturer of our DVDs.  I immediately ran out the door and went and grabbed the first box of our initial order.
 Eventhough I have watched every piece of the DVD more times than I can count, it was very exciting to pull out a copy (okay, copies) and run my hands over them and look at the pretty pictures.

The first ones should be going in the mail either today or tomorrow, and of course anyone attending our screening on Friday  who has ordered a copy can pick up theirs then.

The party is looking like it's going to be a lot of fun.  We've sold a good chunk of the tickets - but there is always room for more.  And of course if we have any copies of this run of the DVDs left over, you can purchase the DVD right there.

Also, expect an exciting new announcement at the party... which of course I'll reveal here too a few days later after I've recovered from the hoopla.

Why everyone should order three dozen copies - so your baby can swin in Beast of Bottomless Lake DVDs too.

Red Carpet Preview

Okay so "red carpet" is just a bit extreme.  I don't think we're shelling out for a roll of rug.  But there has been some question as to who is going to be at the screening.

I'm just sticking to what I know and only dealing with the principles here.

The Director, Craig March will of course be on hand.  I, myself, will be there (Kennedy Goodkey) - co-writer and the actor playing Stewart, the grumpy physicist.  Bronwen Smith who played Leslie, the earth mother-y ecology scientist is going to be there with her husband John Prowse who is also in the film in one of my favourite cameos.  Fabrice Grover, who plays documentarian Ernie McKellar is going to be present - and on a side note is somewhat ironically going to be being followed by a documentary crew doing a film about Canadian independent film.  I do not know if Roger Haskett will be in the house - he just had a new addition to his family (four weeks early!) last week, which understandably has changed his priorities.  Leanne Jijian Hume who plays Paul Moran's assistant (and love interest) will be in attendance - this is kind of special as Leanne lives in East Timor now so her being here on the right day is an unusual treat.  And of course that leaves the person who will be most asked about - David Nykl, the star of the film...  Unfortunately I just got word from David.  He has been trying to switch around some obligations, but it has not come to pass.  We will have to welcome the DVD into the world without him in attendance.  He will of course be there in spirit (and of course he is featured on one of the two commentaries on the DVD.)

And of course... The Pucks (who have two songs in the film) will be there rocking the house.

So... if you don't already have all the info:

New Swag!

If you don't know about the DVD release you haven't been reading this blog.

But wait there's more.

We would like to take this opportunity to announce that the formerly paltry number of items in our CafePress store has expanded... a lot.



Where there used to be about a dozen different shirt styles in 4-5 colours, there are now more things than anyone will ever buy.

While of course there is standard fare... like the aforementioned shirts - now in more styles, roughly the same number of colours, but with four different images that configure in a metric tonne of different ways - like hoodies and pyjamas

There is also fairly common stuff like coffee cups, water bottles clocks, baby-onesies, hats and iPhone cases....

(Note that the images here are merely the smallest sample.)
As well as utterly stupid stuff like Dog T-shirts, coasters and throw pillows... that is if you really need a Beast of Bottomless Lake Dog T-Shirt..
