Diagonal Venndiagram Digitalization

The DVDs are scheduled to arrive tomorrow. As long as the big cheese gives it the go ahead after looking them over, they should officially be on sale this week! My blind, uneducated guess would be Wednesday. Don't quote me on that. I have notoriously bad luck with this kind of stuff.

Something I forgot to say in the previous post, which Joseph has already mentioned, is that the initial run of DVDs is 1000 units. Personally, I have no idea if that's a gross underestimate or not, like some of you have told me. I guess that's my inner pessimist coming out. Rest assured though, if they sell out, I can almost guarantee there will be more made. These DVDs probably won't be some kind of rare, super-fan status symbol I'm afraid.

On that note, and this will sound completely contradictory to what I just said, there's something weird and more or less unintentional about these "first-editions". There's an if-you're-not-looking-you-probably-won't-notice-it typo on the back of this first run's cases. This is through no fault of the wonderful Terry Lynn Massey, I should point out. In fact, I don't know whose fault it is. I didn't write the description on the back. Nor did Joseph. It's a mystery that will never be solved.

GET OUT

The unintended side effect of this is easy identification of the first-editions, as we were told it'll be corrected if/when another batch is made. So if that matters to you, you should get on this first run. I won't judge you either way.

One more thing. Some of you have asked if it's possible to get autographed copies of the DVD when they go on sale. I've sent an email to the big cheese asking about it and am waiting on a response now. I am absolutely opposed to charging more money for a case with my inconsistent signature on it. However, since the DVDs will be six states away, they'd have to be shipped to us first, then shipped out AGAIN after being signed. So in the interest of not losing money, we'd unfortunately have to jack up the price to compensate. I also don't know if we'd have the time necessary to sign them and make daily runs to the post office to send them again. I'll keep you all updated on it regardless. We didn't expect this request at all!

  5. This is exciting! I'll be for sure ordering one of these first runs, and probably a second copy as a lender eventually. Hopefully we get multiple season DVDs -- It would be a shame if we were only to get Season 1 of a multi-season series!

  7. Haha, you didn't think we'd want your autographs Troy?
    When I heard that the DVD was real, my first thought was if there would be autographed editions. X3

  9. As I said on Facebook, I am totally willing to shell out more for a signed copy. I figured it would cost you guys more to sign them, given the whole 3rd-party dealin' issue.

  11. This is awesome. I was just telling my horror fan mother that I'd like for her to see Marble Hornets, but she isn't really someone to sit in front of a computer and do it, so I told her that I'd hope that it came to DVD.

    That very day I came home from her house and saw the scrambled DVD case image. I was so excited that I called her right away.
