Hello Everyone it's Brandin Hawthorne Asking everyone to support my Kickstarter
If you would be more informative in your title next time, I'd appreciate it.
OKay Thanks will do next time :)
I fell off the top of a tennis court fence drunk while tailgating a few years ago. Do you have any idea how tall those things are? Since then, I've been pretty apprehensive to tailgate outside Michigan Stadium... your idea sounds awesome, though. You guys seem pretty dialed in on how to use your local celeb status to your advantage for crowdsourcing. An honest question, were you taught this stuff in school?
Wasnt taught this in school however, ive always been the type of person that uses his tools to his advantage.
We can be jerks to each other robby, let's cut the actual ballers some slack...he may not know youre joking
its fine i have great humor
This looks pretty cool, and the prizes are sweet. I'll definately donate!
Thanks for your support and Hopefully I have a chance to meet everyone this fall
Wondering if your familiar with Palm Beach Lakes? My nephew plays there under coach willie snead.......Elijah, look out for him if you are around, and help me show him the way to the big house!
Yeah im familar with PB lakes we beat them #times during my time in high school and i also know coach snead
I really like this idea, and I might pledge $65 just so I can get the personalized voicemail. I think that's a hilarious reward.
Thanks for your support and GO Blue
Somewhat confused on the prize levels. As you go up in levels do you get everything below? I'm interested in the two shirts but it would be silly not to get a download or DVD (preferable) of the video that is the true intention of the kick starter. I don't so much care about the water bottles but I'd take those too obviously.
Also I'm friends with a family who has een tailgating for 35+ years. As far as I know they're one of the top tailgaters for tradition they get there early and he parking guys explicitly let them in early so they get the same spot every game. Ill be there with my family (we live in Ohio) for the Akron U game (my mom's employe by them) an would love to see you guys. I don't think my friends fam is active on here I met them through The Mzone blog.
We will add the DvD as a option and we will get you the digital download. Thanks for the feedback
It says 1 backer and $50,000 out of $75,000 pledged.
50.00 not 50,000
I'm rich, bitch!
I have my Football heart shirt on as I type this. I'm in.
Thanks for your support and Go Blue
I could swear it said 50,000 too. But i looked now and it says 50.00
I pledged $300 for both spots on Vincent's canoe, but I could only select one. Please put me down for both spots.
kickstarter has its own method we have you down with vincent plus your 2 people
Let's get this baby funded. My daughter can't wait!
Thanks for the Support we are looking forward to the fall
I also pledged $300 and would like 2 spots in a Canoe, Thanks
thanks we have you down for 2 spots
The vacation I'm going on next week is eating up most of my Summer earnings. But I do enjoy having autographs. I won't have much saved up after the trip but if I do I would definitely like to get that autograph!
Thanks anyways and you can come and partake in the event and we will give you tshirt and autographs
I think it would be cool to have that original painting. Wish I had money :(
That being said I'll probably buy a tank, that is cool!
your always welcome to join our art classes Thanks and GoBlue
I don't like hello post unless its for a commitment
I'll be a dork and say, "Don't forget about the Men's Glee Club tradition of going around and singing Michigan songs at tailgates!"
Also, this sounds like a great project!
First of all, I am in.
Also, I will be giving you a hand with the history of tailgating at Michigan and how it originated. Right now I am currently ripping an excerpt from the Michigan Football Memories documentary from 2004 that is all about the history of tailgates.
It is a pretty good segment and shows tailgates from the mid 60s and who really drove the concept of making a football Saturday in Ann Arbor an event and not just a game.
I will post it here shortly in this thread when it's done ripping and when I upload it to my YouTube.
Thanks for your support and keep in touch because im postive that we will have lots of questions GoBlue
I've seen this film before and you will get a lot out of it for good tailgating history.
Here is the video.
I can send you more on it if you would like. I would just have to make it a private video and send you the link so the copyright nazis of T3media don't come after my account again.
Okay that would work and thanks for the awsome video
Brandin, this sounds like a great project and I'm excited for it.
Just out of curiosity, what credentials do you or those involved have in film-making and what made you want to do this project, other than that it sounds like a dream project for any Michigan fanatic? I don't necessarily mean formal credentials, but professional film-making is tough business, even with contemporary technology. I'm wondering what kind of experience and equipment the people involved have and to what extent you will be relying on outside professional help.
Thanks Im real exctied to do this project. im the exceutive productor and of course we have a team for this project with michigan alums in the film industry however, if we run into any trouble we know numorus of people that can help us.
This sounds like a great project, first and foremost, and I am definitely all in and will donate as well. It will be interesting to see this done from the perspective of someone who played for the team, as I am sure it would be pretty unique. I rather like the "Robots Hustle Harder" shirt on the Kickstarter page, I will say.
Good luck in reaching this goal, and thanks for sharing this with us.
Thanks for the tip i have that Robots hustle harder shirt in gray as well..
if I was a lil younger trampoling dodgeball sounds awesome.
Hey theres also trampoling basketball at the place as well
There used to be a league for that. I remember watching a few games because of old college players where doing it.
Looking forward to my card being charged and an October arrival of my goody-bag
I like to do a shrimp, crab and sausage boil. Not on the grill, but oh so tasty.
Thanks for your support come join us this fall and help out Go Blue
Damn if i lived within 3k miles of Michigan I'd be all over some of that stuff. I'm just happy I'll be going to the game in Iowa this year. It's going to be my first ever Michigan game I watched in person!
Best of luck on the video
thanks for your support and you must take a trip to ann Arbor to watch the wolverines theres no place like the Big House
One story you might be interested in, is the birth of a local hot sauce called Clancy's Fancy. I have heard a story on how it was born tailgaiting behind Chrysler and was so popular, they decided to sell it on the market.
I am sure if you talked to the owners, they can give you the complete rundown and in a much better story form.
thanks for the heads up and im looking forward to getting this project under way im sure with the help and support of everyone on mgoblog we will reach our goal. knowing that we are the leaders and best i will make it the best well known for years to come
