We've been making nerds laugh since 2010. Over the years, each of our three members have migrated away from the others (Missouri, Texas, and Canadia), which makes it incredibly difficult and costly to get together. To stay alive, we cut our convention appearances down, and eventually started this Patreon campaign!

We have more conventions that we want to do. We have more ideas for videos. We've even written new parody songs, and this Patreon campaign helps us to keep moving forward with those things.

We have come up with LOTS of goals and rewards to motivate our fans to help us out. If you've got some extra money that you can toss our way, we are ready to put it to use. In return, we promise more content and more con appearances.

FAQ

Don't conventions pay for you to perform there?
Each convention is different, but the short answer is "no". The cons do what they can to help us out, but in general, we are usually stuck with most (if not all) of our own travel costs. That's especially problematic, since we're all so far away from each other. No matter where the convention is, one of us is probably going to need to fly to get there.

Why don't you make more parodies?
We want to! Unfortunately, none of us are musicians who play an actual instrument, so creating music means finding people to help us. Plus, if we're going to put something out, we want it to be good. So we also need someone who can record and mix decent audio.

Why don't you make more videos or a web series?
This goes back to wanting to put out a good product. We have an amazing friend who will produce, direct, shoot, and edit our videos for us, but it's not fair to keep asking him to do it for free. He's incredibly skilled, and he deserves compensation for the hours and hours of work he puts in.
