Should I keep my different projects separate? Should I keep the Franks and Beans blog un-despoiled by non F&B items? Here’s an idea, faithful reader: why don’t you watch your stinkin’ mouth?
Ugh, that was harsh. I’m sorry, guys. This is an especially egregious error as I am trying to raise a little bit of money to show “Weird Al” Yankovic’s 1989 cult classic film “UHF” at a local theater on May 31st of the year. What was I thinking? Please, forgive me.
Here’s the details: I recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to help offset the licensing and rental fees associated with the screening. The film will screen at Latrobe 30 Theatre & Cafe, and it will take place the same day as Al’s Greensburg, PA “Mandatory Fun” tour date. The theater is fewer than 10 miles from the concert venue, so I’m hoping that fans and those attending the concert will want to see the movie earlier in the day.
I’ve got a whole lot of rewards to offer up to anyone who pledges, from 11×17 prints, to pins, to shirts, to a gigantic, movie poster-sized print that is the official image of the campaign and screening:
You can even get tickets to the show if you live in the area (or feel like a road trip), though you don’t have to attend the movie to get the other items!
I just announced that anyone who pledges at the $10 level or higher will get a Money for Nothing/Beverly Hillbillies inspired sticker at no extra charge!
So if you enjoy Franks and Beans, you’re a fan of Weird Al, or if you’re just a nice person who would feel bad if this dang thing doesn’t succeed, I hope you’ll click the following link to read more about this UHF movie screening Kickstarter project: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jeffmcclelland/uhf-movie-screening/
Even if you can’t pledge anything, I hope you’ll decide to share this project with people that you know.
