New to the site: Google Advertising

After a discussion with my sister-in-law, I checked into putting up some advertising through Google AdSense. I figure if it brings in any money, I can use those funds to pay for the domain name charge and keep the website operational that way. The way that the ads are chosen is from taking key words from the text on this webpage. Since there's been a lot of talk about the shirts recently, it is finding ads that deal with that subject matter in some way or form. So, if I start talking about Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar every day, we'd probably see ads for Lord of the Rings Online if Turbine is still promoting that way. Anyway, here's hoping for some advertising income!

Oh, the irony of it all...

Two days after I sent the "Luke & Leia" script to the two people I was going to use in place of Travis and Chris, I get an e-mail from Travis saying that he's finally coming back to Minnesota. So, I made the decision to go back to using Chris and Travis for the film. Maybe we'll get something done by year's end.

Recasting and FDP Store news

First to the store news. I have it pretty organized the way I want it now except for the graphic ad on the main page here and a better store name to sprawl across the main store page. I'm open to suggestions on what we can call it besides the Flaming Death Productions Store or FDP Store. FDP just sounds too much like FDS to me, and we're not selling feminine deodorant (or at least not yet). Heh!

Second, I've finally decided to recast "Luke & Leia". After two years, I just decided that it's time. I have two people in mind for the leads, but I don't want to put any names out here until they're locked into place. Preliminary negotiations are looking favorable, though. SO... watch this site for the latest updates! Yes, we're finally going to make another movie!

The "Yoda's Treasure" DVDs for sale!

I don't have everything in the store worked out yet, but I did make up a page for ordering the "Yoda's Treasure" DVDs. It's located right here until I organize the store and set up the side-bar links. At $7.50 a DVD with USPS Priority Mail shipping included, it's not too bad of a deal, don't cha think?

The store is open!

Yes, you're not hallucinating! I finally gave Lord of the Rings Online a rest tonight and got the FDP store up and running. We're only selling the t-shirts at this time, so that's all you'll see for now. Hopefully we'll include more products at a future date including "Yoda's Treasure" which itself would only be sold at cost due to copyright restrictions. If you have any other ideas that we could use for items to sell, let me know via the e-mail link here on the site.

In other news, the filming that I though would take place this summer has been delayed. (Surprise! Surprise!) So, now the contest begins! Who will make it back to Minnesota first? Travis (in Nevada) or Matt (in Michigan)? I'm placing my bets on Matt. hehe!

Long time, no posts

Yep, it's been a while since the last post, so I thought I'd give everyone an update on what's happening.

"Luke & Leia" is still currently stalled (imagine that!). However, while sitting at work a couple of weeks ago, I came up with two more ideas, one of which I wrote a script for. This one should be a little easier to do, but does require both Chris and Matt to be around at the same time. It just so happens that Matt will be back in the area at some point soon, so perhaps we'll have some filming going on soon!

As for the t-shirts, I'm finally starting to get around to making the online order form. Yes, I've talked about doing it for quite a while, but I can blame two things for getting in the way: "Starcraft" and "Lord of the Rings Online".

T-Shirts are ordered!

Yep...and they'll be ready on February 16th. This will mean they'll be ready to be handed out and shown to people at my annual Sci-Fi Party which is the next day.

I'm also going to be modifying the site here sometime soon so we can take orders online for others who want shirts. Perhaps I'll expand the line a little and see what else we can have made up.

Final Design

The final t-shirt design is ready to go. All I need now is to get orders from a couple more people and pricing on everything so we can go ahead and get the shirts made. Here's the final design:
