Drawing attention to some great AMVs (.. WMVs?) made by SupaBlueFire, who has been a super-dedicated reader for years. I sent her a message asking if she would consider making another one after these two from ages ago that we were so amused by. And of course, she totally goes overboard and makes all of the below for me to show Vero once I arrived in Chicago:

Now we’re back in New Jersey (prepping for Anime Boston and ECCC, whoa!) so I decided to write out this post and recommend you all watch and leave her some nice comments!

Don’t be a TURKEY! GOBBLE UP some AMAZING DEALS on books and merch in the BCB STORE BLACK FRIDAY SALE! It’s STUFFED full of surprisingly low prices! You will think we’re utterly BIRD BRAINED.
We don’t mean to RUFFLE YOUR FEATHERS, but let’s make it perfectly clear: it’s not a thanksgiving weekend sale! It’s not a Cyber Monday sale! It’s a once-only BLACK FRIDAY SALE and it ENDS TOMORROW!

We got a lot of kind notes about the Volume Three pitch video, so I hope you guys don’t mind if I post one last thing about it!

The video was essentially a last-minute concept I came up with after viewing a bunch of old commercials. I wasn’t sure if Veronica would go for it on the basis of the song and script alone, so I gave her a list of scrambled directions to “draw some very basic doodles of these 25 Paulo x Jasmine scenes” and didn’t tell her why until I cut it all together. This rough (rough!) demo was the result, and it’s cute enough to share, I think!

We briefly entertained the thought of getting it animated, but… well. It’s like a lot of things - fast, good or cheap: pick two. So we skipped the animation idea going with zooms and pans instead… but weirdly enough, the VHS effect does a good job distracting you from the Babby’s First iMovie trappings, doesn’t it? As cool as a real cartoon would be, I think it was the right choice.

Anyway, just a bit of minutiae you guys might enjoy. Not long to go now!
