So, I keep seeing trailers for this:
And it makes me:
So here is your golden opportunity to do good in the world AND make Rachael suffer horribly.
PROGRESS TOWARD EARLIER ULTIMATE SUFFERING: $120/200
PROGRESS TOWARD ULTIMATE SUFFERING: $100/100 STAGE COMPLETE I’M SEEING THE STINKIN’ MOVIE
IF you all collectively donate at least $100 across the following charities by February 21, I will go watch Pompeii on Monday, February 24. (I’m pushing it back to Monday because I’ll be at ConDFW all that weekend.) And I will write a bitchy–ass review about it and post it here.
Charities for this round of suffering:
- National Center for Science Eduction (in honor of all this fucking HORRIBLE movie geology)
- Sea Shepherd Australia (or your own country’s chapter of Sea Shepherd)
- The Gathering Place (Thank you to Elise for the suggestion!)
This one is honor system; just go directly to the charity and donate, then come back and leave me a comment, send me a tweet, etc to let me know how much you donated. I’ll do a running tally.
But what’s a fundraiser without some stretch goals?
If you all raise $200, I will go see it opening day, even though I’ll be in Dallas. Because you’ll have proven to me how thirsty you are to taste my existential (and scientific) anguish. I will hunt down a movie theater and do it.
If you all raise $300, I will take NOTES and provide a quasi–liveblog in addition to bitchy-ass reviewing. (Sorry, true liveblog is impossible; they tend to frown on you having a laptop out in the movie theater.)
If you all raise $400, I will see it in 3D. That is how fucking serious I am about this. (You have no idea how much I hate 3D in movies.)
DO YOUR WORST. I DARE YOU.
You evil bastards THANK YOU:
JRD Skinner ($5)
Ingvar ($35 w/ $35 gift match [not counted])
