It's never too early for Christmas! MarzGurl can tell you six months in advance whether or not you should bother with yet another one of Don Bluth's creations that had no involvement from Bluth himself.
Well, the official rules PDF stated that the voting period would end at 11:59 PM, but it turns out they decided on noon instead. Honestly, I'm not gonna lie, I'm okay with that. That takes quite a lot of pressure off me, and I'm glad that I'm no longer pushing it. As I know that you all will be glad for, also.
Things ended really well and better than I could have possibly hoped for. In the end, I was one of only two people who had more than 10,000 video views (I'm hoping that votes then also correlate with said views).
At this point, all I can really do is wait. We now cross into the Round 2 Judging Period, where the judges tally up votes and make their own ultimate decision on who they actually thought was good. That process could take somewhere around a week. So all I can do now is sit here and sweat and hope that I hear back from a producer within the next week. They have the option of offering three people the opportunity of speaking to a producer... or less than that, if they decide that there were fewer qualified contestants than that. I'm on the edge of my seat, biting my nails right about now.
But, I'll say this much. I have the greatest, kindest, most loving community anybody could possibly ask for. Even if all I get to say is, "You know what? I was a serious contender for a spot on King of the Nerds, and it's because of great people that I was able to attain that," then I'm absolutely thrilled. You all graciously put up with me and in a lot of cases encouraged and further promoted me. I really wouldn't have pushed it so hard if it didn't suddenly appear like I had a shot. And that's not because of a lot of things I did. It's because of people like you who believed in me and carried me that far.
Part of me is surprised, and part of me isn't, at just how varied the people who supported me are. I mean, really, I had support from gamers, anime fans, Bronies, Whovians, Trekkies, I mean everything, the whole nine yards. In that sense, even if TV producers don't think I'm the People's Nerd, I feel like, just for a moment, I was able to become somebody that people all across the geek and nerd spectrum could put their confidence in. I know that there were other people you could have voted for. Really famous Pokemon fans, or really incredible Magic: The Gathering players. And while they're really good at their trade, you chose to put your faith in me, someone who has had their hands in just about everything available, and I actually made it this far. That's exactly why it's not just me you voted for; it's yourselves. If I were to make it any farther than this, and even if I don't, I feel privileged in knowing that you trusted me to be your People's Nerd. Thank you for believing in me, even if being on a TV show never happens.
Thank you to all of you, my friends. Thank you to everyone who's followed my video production all these years, to those of you who only recently decided I might have been worth your time, to my fellow producers who signal boosted me not because they had to or even because I asked them to but because they wanted to and must also have believed in me, to my close local friends who did all they could to share their friend with everyone they knew, to the very few family members I have who saw what I was trying to do and supported me through it, and thank you especially to my wonderful fiance Josh who jumped immediately into gear to shape me up and act somewhat as a publicist and an agent for me this past week (along with talking me through things and keeping me sane as I worked).
That's all for now, friends. If I have anything new to tell you, of course you know you'll be the first to know. Until then, we go dark on this front, and life continues as normal.
Thank you for your love, kindness, and support.
Finally wrapping up the loose ends of the old Don Bluth series, Space Ace TV had no involvement from Bluth himself. How does it compare to the original video game? Plus, watch ’til the end to see how you can participate in something pretty cool!
