Better 3 Hours Early than 1 Minute Late

$2
per month
I typically finish these videos the night before they go live, but sometimes it's earlier. Regardless, you'll get them here minutes before I even get them scheduled on YouTube. And with no ads to boot!

Seeing the Sausage Get Made

$5
per month
These videos involve minutes of uncut dialogue, and more often than not, something goes wrong. It makes me sad and/or frustrated. At this tier, you'll get outtakes and other and other extra footage. At least once a month there should be something fun. (Also, the early/ad-free videos, of course.)

They Shall Read Your Name

$6.99
per month
You'll get the early and extra videos, of course, as well as the name or alias of your choice (within reason) placed over my post-score rambling.

About The Week I Review

The Week I Review is a YouTube channel created by Alec Kubas-Meyer as a way to express his/my feelings on the myriad things I see, do, or otherwise experience in life. I've reviewed everything from movies to food to amusement parks, always centering the thing on me and oftentimes my politics... so if you don't like either of those things, this channel ain't for you!

In the years since I started, the release schedule has become less consistent (so that "week" isn't often right anymore), but the videos have gotten longer and more in-depth as a result. I'm no longer focused on getting something up every Monday and would rather do it when it's ready. If my script is ready by Saturday night and I can shoot it on Sunday, great! But if it's not ready, I no longer force it, and I think the videos are better as a result.

With this Patreon, I'm hoping to defray some of the costs associated with doing a show that requires me to see and experience cool things on a week-to-week basis. I have a day job, and that's fine, but certainly I could do more if I had a dedicated source of revenue for the channel. As such, any money made on Patreon would funnel immediately back into either things I would potentially review or wares that could make the videos better on a technical level.

In return, you get early-ish/ad-free videos, early-ish/ad-free videos and extra videos, or early-ish/ad-free videos and extra videos and credit in the credits: 15 folks can have me say their names, while the rest must be content with text-only credit, but credit nonetheless.

Even for non-Patrons, the ad-free versions are usually made public a few days after they go live here/on YouTube. In cases where they do not become public, it is because there is additional material on those posts, usually sections of the review's script that were ultimately cut before recording for whatever reason. That little bonus is available for all tiers and not just the $5+ who get extra videos.
