Holy Bible DVD Kickstarter campaign

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...e-my-testament

They want £4000 by Dec 4. Can't see that happening.

I've just put £30 in. A worthy cause and good luck.

Not a great reward for £30 if I'm honest. I've backed kickstarters for less and received more. The "name on the credits" thing only appeals to personal vanity really.

And if you are outside the UK it is really £40 after postage

Maybe it will reach the goal after all. They've raised more than James and Sean's Justgiving page so far.

But according to their own page, the best bits will end up on the Quietus website for free anyway...

If I get a copy, it will be the £15 one. I don't want Simon Price scribbling over my DVD case!

The pledges do suck to be honest. An extra £5 for Simon Price's (who?) scribble on it. Get a grip.

Offer some cool stuff FFS:
- £75 to get name in credits, DVD and to go to a VIP private showing.
- £100 to be in it (fan interviews in extras or something - as Price mentions in the HTF interview it is about the "fan culture" surrounding the album), DVD, private showing
- £150 to be in it, get some linked mechanise (t-shirt, mug or something), DVD, private showing

Make the 4 grand in no time.

I wonder how much of it is too pay off Simon Price. Seems like a pathetic cash in.

Same kind of thing could have been achieved with a decent website where people are asked to write their own entries rather than have them manipulated by Mr. Price. Does anyone really want to pay for things that have been discussed on this forum over and over again which is free for all to read?

Interview with Simon Price about it.

http://www.hitthefloor.com/music/ind...ary-interview/

This is basically something Sony should have funded to include in the THB20 box.

Kevin Cummins is apparently involved now too, to be interviewed by (yes, you've guessed it) Simon Price.
