Who are ya?
I'm a wrestling fan who makes stupid videos for other wrestling fans. My contribution to the world since 2007 is Botchamania, which is a video series about everything good, bad and Sabu to do with wrestling and video game music.

Though mostly focusing on the botches (hence the name), ridiculous moments in terms of booking, storylines and in real life are highlighted (lowlighted?) with a healthy dose of nerdy jokes that are aimed at people like myself (adults who should know better).

Wait a minute sunshine, you've been doing these videos since 2007. Why are you suddenly on Patreon?

Botchamania is free. If you want to donate a dollar, you can get to watch the new videos a day before anyone else. If you don't want to do that, nae bother:

You still get the video. For free.

I don't expect everybody to donate a dollar and I'm very thankful for everyone who does, but it's not essential for Botchamania's existence for you to do so. I don't have it in me to beg or guilt people into paying my rent and I apologise for the very badly-worded last Patreon statement that (understandably) annoyed so many people.

To pat myself on the back Barry Horowitz-style, I've been quite happy with the good relationship I've built up over the years with the fans and been impressed I haven't made too much of a tit of myself or got drunk on Twitter or something.

And then I typed a whiny Patreon message which effectively said ''IF I DON'T GET MONEY I'M QUITTING''. Which is why you should never type shit when in a bad mood.

You don't have to like me to like the videos (which is just as well) and it's just as well so many of you are forgiving. If you want to donate and help a guy out, that's fine. If you don't want to but want to continue watching the videos, that's fine too.

Just remember: anytime a wrestler botches and I make fun of them, they can always type ''fuck you Maffew, you embarrassed yourself on Patreon.''

What about the donation levels above a dollar?

Some people wanna give more, so I'm giving other incentives. The only way you get 'money for nothing' is via Weird Al.

If you have other ideas for incentives, I'm open to ideas.

Just when you think I have all the answers...I fuck it up by opening my mouth.

What about: if I donate a few dollars more I get to pick a song for the videos?

GOD NO.

I tried that before in the past with the MAGFest Kickstarter and it wasn't a good idea. A lot of Botchamania's charm comes from the music selections and last time I did that, a lot of un-Botchamania songs then had to get used. I tried to give some people their money back for bad songs but they wouldn't take them. So yeah, I won't do that again. I don't care how good your band is.

What happened to that $3,000 thing?

Due to the poor typing (my bad) and some other people trying to be helpful and linking this Patreon on websites with the title ''HELP MAFFEW QUIT HIS DAYJOB!'', a lot of people got the idea that I needed three grand to live or something. This was a mistake but I accept ''Three Grand Maffew'' as an ironic nickname.

You're making other videos like Let's Watch Raw and SinCaraMania. Am I going to be charged for those too?

No, just the ability to watch Botchamania two days before anyone else.

The other videos are my attempts at trying new things and giving you people intended value for money.

SinCaraMania was made, any other targets?

Right now? Nah. If you have any urges, send 'em this way.

Cheers for supporting Botchamania with the small change you've probably got in your pocket. For that, you get the video e-mailed to you two whole days before everybody else!

Edit: I accidentally deleted this option sorry. Typical, eh?

Christ, that's nice. For this loving amount, you will get the videos two days before the norms and submit a question to the monthly Q n A...which was an idea I nicked from someone else's Patreon thinking it'd probably not work but people actually responded and submitted questions so huzzah.

Bloody hell, that's nice! For your loveliness, you may shove an advert at the start of the next video. You get up to twenty seconds (which is five seconds longer than fifteen) and I'm open to anything. Bands, furniture, podcasts, knock your socks off.

Even though Phantom Sin Cara is still with WWE, people have been demanding it for years. Well, given that it'd take a while to watch three or so years worth of footage, I think it's fair to ask this amount. It's not like the matches are good or anything. So essentially this is the 'Wrestlemania X7 on the WWE Network' of the Botchamania Patreon.
