Better 3 Hours Early than 1 Minute Late
$2
per month

I typically finish these videos Sunday night; they go live Monday morning. Sometimes it's days earlier. In all cases, they'll be posted here minutes before I even get them scheduled on YouTube. So you get first dibs.

Seeing the Sausage Get Made
$5
per month

I do these things in a single take. Stuff goes wrong. Sometimes I'll be 11 minutes into a 13-minute script and then the microphone will slowly sink into frame and I become very sad. At this tier, I'll post such outtakes and other extra footage from videos that have them. At least once a month there should be something fun. (Also, the early videos, of course.)

They Shall Know Your Name
$7
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. Plausibly a shout-out, even.

About

The Week I Review is a project created by Alec Kubas-Meyer (not a name you're supposed to recognize) as a way to express his feelings on the myriad things he sees, does, or otherwise experiences in his life.

He (well, I) wanted to delve into the things that I find interesting in a format that keeps me honest. There are no backlogged videos ready to send; everything was made in the seven days prior to posting (and typically in the previous two). It was inspired by my time using the 1 Second Everyday app, but that became a bit much. So rather than 365 seconds, I decided to do 52+ 10ish minute videos. More work, sure, but the increased depth to discuss everything from bands to vacations to food to general concepts is worth it.

And it's been a year now. With all that time and 65 videos under my belt, it seemed like an acceptable time to try my hand at That Thing That Everyone Is Doing These Days: crowdfunding.

I'm not on Patreon to "make money" (I have no delusions of grandeur or reaching an objective level of "success"); rather, I'd like to defray some of the costs that are 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 videos, early videos and extra videos, or early videos and extra videos and credit in the credits. Once the Patreon's been around for a little while, I think I'll have a clearer sense of what it will be used for. But those things will definitely be a part of it regardless.

And if you'd like to join me? Well, that'd be pretty cool.
