See all reviews a day early. If you only really care about The Literary Lair and How to Fix It, and not the side videos, (like riffs and Let's Plays) then this tier is for you. You won't get access to side videos a day early, but you'll get access to the regular reviews a day early, just like the $2.00 level.

About

Hello and Welcome to the BlackScarabFilmZ Patreon. I'm Michael Gleason and I'm a reviewer. If you don't know what that is... well I'm confused at how you found this page. What I do is take a work of media, my preferred media being books, television shows or movies, and I review them, de-construct them and generally poke fun at them using a touch of snark, though for the really bad stuff, it's a little more than a touch. For nearly seven years, I've produced YouTube videos as a hobby, having come from humble, and to be honest poorly put together beginnings, to now, where I might not be the best reviewer out there, but I'm miles ahead from where I started. And a few years ago I started a Patreon in order to try to take YouTube and make it more than just a hobby, and since YouTube has effectively stripped my channel of revenue making tools because I'm not a "thriving channel", this is the only way I can make revenue from these videos.

The two main shows that I produce on a (currently) weekly basis are: The Literary Lair, where I look at books, short stories, and anything tangentially book related, such as audio dramas or book related toplists, and How To Fix It, where I look at a flawed work of media, usually movies or television shows, (but video games aren't off the table if so requested), talk about the aspects that worked, the aspects that didn't, and then detail how I would improve the work to make the good parts better and remove most/all of the bad parts.

Obviously, I'm not asking for free money, there are some reward levels, so that you can get something in return for supporting the show with your hard earned cash. These range from seeing videos a day earlier than the rest of the world at the lowest levels, and at the highest levels, you can request a review for either of the shows and force me to review whatever you want!*

So if you enjoy my videos, have a few extra dollars lying around every month burning a hole in your pockets, and you want to help out the show (or possibly reap the benefits of those reward tiers) consider becoming a BlackScarabFilmZ Patron today!

*: Anything you want within limits, (See the $7 reward tiers for those limits)

Goals
$11.78 of $20 per month
Back in 2013, I started a running gag where Professor Mikesano would run a public access-esque show about how to become a Mad Scientist. And now I want to actually produce that, but to do so, I'd need some extra stuff I don't have lying around. My idea is for a 10 episode mini-series about how one becomes a mad scientist that would be released first to patrons, and then released to the entire audience.
