little help

More shinies please

When I get a new cd I tend to listen to it over and over again for between a couple of days and a few weeks. Then I sort of burn out on it and move to something else. Every once in a while there is something I just keep coming back to. Most recently it has been Repo! the Genetic Opera.

(insert Repo! spaz here. You've all heard/read it before so I'll just move on. But in case you haven't maybe you should watch the trailer or buy the DVD)

I also keep coming back to Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. When that came out I just wanted to send Joss Whedon money and tell him to go play and bring me more shiny things. I mean there are only so many copies of Firefly you can buy before you run out of people to give it to and your shelves start looking ridiculous. The same goes for Repo! I bought it on DVD twice and once on Blu-ray (and I don't even own a blu-ray player)

I just wish there was a way for me to show my continued support for their work. I would love a paypal button that would go straight to certain people so they can put their pet project into motion. (therefore giving me more shinies)

I am aware that sending Joss or Terrance or anyone else $10 ever now and again really doesn't make that much of a difference but if the option were readily available I'm sure I wouldn't be the only one utilizing it. I mean a lot of webcomic artists have donation buttons (and I use those on occasion).

So if anyone finds a, hopefully reliable*, place to fund independent projects let me know and I'll chip in to fund the awesome.

*on a side note I think I just thought up a nifty money making scam- SCHEME! I meant scheme!
