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 thesetwo 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:
I saw there was a surprising lack of a click-and-drag game for BCB so I made one.
Some characters are rarer than others, so good luck finding them all!

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!
It’s all over! Thank you everybody for the huge amount of support! We doubled our initial goal in a super-short campaign, and we got more backers than ever before. You’re the best.
— Veronica and Oliver
Thank you for the big outpouring of support in these last few hours of the Volume Three Kickstarter campaign! We’ve got a whole bunch of PayPal pledges as well as new backers and that stretchgoal is looking close..!
Remember, this is your last chance to change your pledge, link the project to your friends and… um… stare at the countdown clock!
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!
We met the third stretchgoal!! Here’s a preview of “Parental Supervision”, the second bonus comic now included in BCB Volume Three!
We just put up a big bunch of stretchgoals, so please check out the project page and beg your friends to pledge so we can make an awesome book even better!! Remember, it’s a super-short campaign… there’s only 10 days to go!
