A Note From Mel

Hi friends,

I noticed that El went ahead and launched our Mega-Epic Webisode Kickstarter Project last week while I wasn't looking. Well, I'm back & I want to connect with you, the people, about this whole thing. In order to do this, I've brought my favorite tool in the world...a LIST!

A gigantic thank you to those that have already pledged a bit o' cash to our Kickstarter Project. We are eternally grateful & look forward to giving you your fancy prizes!

For as little as a $5 pledge, you can get a fabulous prize. You can read all about the different prizes (including CD's, personalized songs, days on set & producer credits) here.

Giving to The Arts is a good thing to do. Jews would call it a Mitzvah. Other people might just call it "giving a donation & getting lots of credit for it". We are The Arts and we deeply appreciate your support.

We promise to never participate in any kind of marathon or other "a-thon" where we ask you to pledge money. We can barely handle the elliptical. This IS our marathon. And making you laugh is our goal. Help us save the future of hilarity, wit & the occasional penis

We are the kind of people who wait until the last minute to do many things: buying tickets to shows, getting our roots done & donating to awesome Kickstarter projects. We are asking you to be stronger than us. And if you feel compelled to give a buck & receive your special prizes, that you do it sooner than later. Otherwise, Mel (me) is gonna have a full-on panic attack.

In order to remind you what it feels like to take a risk on something & have it be awesome, Mel (me) is including an absurd picture from last week of herself on a horse. This was the first barnyard animal Mel has ever "been on". Mel was really scared but she rode that horse (named Kismet, but she kept calling it Karma) for 2 hours. Mel conquered her fear. Maybe you fear things. Maybe donating a ducat or two to our Crazy-Ass-Webisode Kickstarter Project will help you overcome them.

Basically, if you watch our Kickstarter Video & think we're on to something, please help us spread the word. You can post this link ( to your Facebook or Twitter or Whatever Accounts or even forward this email to 9,000 of your closest friends. Did I mention we deeply appreciate it? 'Cause we do.

Saddle Sore,
