I’m sure when Lesley and Ivan post the weekly production updates in the forums here people give them thanks.
But, I don’t think there’s been one centralized, big old, sassy and brassy post that says, “Thank you- we REALLY appreciate all you’re doing!” So, since it is the season of giving thanks, so let’s correct that right now.
I can only speak for myself, but these weekly updates are EXACTLY what I was hoping we’d get with the original Kickstarter to “Bring Back MST 3K” and then “The Gauntlet” Pledge Drive.
I know with all you have on your plates right now, it might seem demanding that each week you have to write up another update to the fans but these check-ins and behind the curtain moments are what really what make things feel “interactive”.
It creates a connection that feels the same way the old fan club did when it would send out quarterly letters, or the way that our own fan mail might, if we got really lucky, get read on the air. Getting these updates just cements that the production really sees and values its fan base.
I’m sure there might be moments where you ask yourselves, “Do fans really want to know about the movie rights? Or our budgeting goals?”
The answer is yes- because, in some small way, it makes us feel like we’re in “the know” about our favorite Cowtown puppet show.
And it’s not just us individually. Each Friday (or possibly a Saturday ) we are getting those updates and sharing in that exciting experience with all the other Misties at the same moment.
We’re all one big family- differences and locations aside. We all are here for the same reason.
So let me say again, “Thank you for the updates. Keep up the great work!”
What do you think sirs?
