I work with a nice lady who has it much worse than me and it doesn't phase her at all so I am trying to just ignore mine as much as possible but it's tough sometimes. I keep thinking folks are looking at the lazy eye and it makes me a bit paranoid.
I'm not really self conscious much anymore, but I very rarely have issues. The last time I really had problems with it was in th mid 90s, when I was working in TV production. Trying to look at 5 or 6 monitors at once in the control room was too much for my left eye.

I had to get a new pair of glasses with prisms in the left lens and wear a patch in the evenings to let the eye rest. Once I quit TV production, it wasn't an issue.

And now I have the poster. I didn't get one of the Ryan Hansen special ones, but still pretty cool. I keep staring at KB's signature.

I would have loved one of those, but I think at $200 it was a bit pricey. Basically $165 more for the blu/ray and signed poster.

Though it is hard to put a price on a signed poster that you are probably never going to be able to get anywhere else.

I received a tracking number for my poster a few days ago, but still at "Information Received". I watched the movie again on my iPad during a flight on Thursday. Still loved it.

Blu-ray/DVD out May 6.

I suppose that means they'll be shipping those rewards around that time, too.

I got the poster. It was evident that the signers were getting tired given the scrawls, but I still like it.

The only one on mine that is completely illegible as a signature, even over his picture, is Francis Capra's. Ryan Hansen's is basically "R____ H____". And Jason Dohring's curiously has one too many descenders -- there's one for the J in Jason, and one for the G in Dohring. I have no idea what the third one is for.

The rest are a bit stylized (but then, whose signature isn't?) but legible.

I got my poster back from the frame shop yesterday. I've had wallspace in my den for a single one-sheet and have occasionally rotated posters into a custom frame I had made several years ago for that spot. I had the shop dry-mount the poster and install it in the frame. VM will probably be in there for a while now. Looks good.

I have a signed photo of the cast when they made an appearance during the first season. I would NEVER part with it!

So I've been re-watching the series on and off, and just finished. I'd forgotten just how many loose ends it left at the end of Season 3!

Ready for the movie now.

I have not gotten shipping notice on my Bluray yet.

For those who did not order a high enough level to get the bluray it is released on next Tuesday and it's only $14.99 at Amazon.

The only bummer part is that it won't contain the backer exclusives.

Is that right? It won't have, say, the documentary on it?

I'm getting the Kickstarter Blu-ray so I'm fine (), but I wouldn't have guessed they would press two versions of the discs.

That was my understanding, but perhaps I misunderstood. I guess I'll find out shortly when my DVD arrives. If it does turn out to be the retail version, then I won't be as bothered by not bumping up to the level to get the Blu-Ray - I'll just go out and get the retail blu-ray version.

The DVD doesn't have anything on it to indicate it's a Kickstarter supporter exclusive. It just has the movie and the making of documentary that the retail version has.

I did receive a shipping notice today from bydeluxe.com. I assume that this is for the Blu-ray.

I got my DVD, never got a shipping notice. I have an all-digital library so whoever PMs me first I'll send my DVD to. Warning, I have two little kids and it might take a while for me to get to the post office. If you can deal with that, I'll gladly send it on.

I'll read it of course, but I can't say I loved the first one. Part of it was just the weirdness of experiencing VM in that medium. And part was the story itself, and some of the character developments.
