Note: This show has already finished airing, but I’ll leave this post up for nostalgia’s sake. You can view videos of the event still hosted at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/marian-call-live-from-thinkgeek-hq.
Hey! Some of you have so many questions, we thought it would be easier to answer them here!
First of all, I’m Marian Call, http://mariancall.com, and accompanying me tonight is the incredible inimitable Scott Barkan, http://myspace.com/scottbarkan. We’re playing at http://thinkgeek.com’s Secret World Domination Headquarters!
If you have a live, real-time question, address it to http://twitter.com/magicswordking or http://twitter.com/thinkgeek and they will guide you. If you’re chatting about the show on Twitter, the hashtag is #MarianTGHQ — so you can see chatter about the show at http://twitter.com/#search?q=%23mariantghq.
You can watch and chat at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/marian-call-live-from-thinkgeek-hq. The show will also be embedded at http://mariancall.com.
If you are enjoying the show, please drop a tip in the Paypal tip jar or buy some music! You can download stuff http://itunes.com/mariancall, or at Amazon or any number of online retailers — but Marian’s preferred is http://mariancall.bandcamp.com (it also has the most and newest and secretest tracks). For physical cd’s, visit http://mariancall.com/purchase.php. For T-shirts or bags or hoodies, visit http://skreened.com/mariancall?partner=mariancallmerch.
Online Listeners! We are making a crazy quilt compilation of online listeners to represent the community of folks listening from afar. E-mail your SFW photo to email@example.com for the photo of you, listening, to be included!
Online Contests! We are playing Geek Bingo here at Thinkgeek HQ, but online viewers are welcome to play games too. To win one of 4 Thinkgeek prizes, Tweet @thinkgeek during the show using the hashtag #MarianTGHQ — and randomly selected winners will get the following:
7pm – 7:30pm: Plush Darth Vader
7:30pm – 8pm: Plush Yoda
8pm – 8:30pm: $150 Thinkgeek Gift Certificate
8:30pm – 9pm: Wampa Rug
(I recommend you do it more than once as any of these gifts are awesome. Also, to our dear overseas friends: these items will be shipped direct from Thinkgeek HQ without the insane shipping rates, so feel free to enter! These items can be shipped overseas if you win (within reason)).
If you have an idea for a T-shirt that Thinkgeek should make, you can submit it at http://thinkgeek.com/bounty! You may have to login.
Yes, we are taping the show to play later, barring technical difficulties.
And again, if you enjoy what you see, please tip accordingly. Paying voluntarily for stuff you love is what the geeks do. Because geeks rock.
We hope you enjoy the evening!
