Title: The Colossus of Destiny: A Melvins Tale
Post by: Idlehanz on January 30, 2015, 06:59:04 PM
 We are close to launching our Kickstarter for The Colossus of Destiny: A Melvins Tale. While we have a lot of great prizes lined up, we are interested in hearing what you guys would like to see offered. Keep in mind, we aren't asking for costs, we just want to know what you would be interested in seeing for prizes.  Also keep in mind, a Kickstarter isn't a store.  You get a prize (or multiple prizes) for contributing towards something that you want to see made, with the end goal being that the money is raised and the movie is made.  We've been working on this for years.  That doesn't mean it gets finished.  There is a lot of work left to do, and we will need help doing it.

With that in mind, let's hear your ideas.

LIMITED VINYL.....  :evil:

While this is a great idea, actually mastering music and pressing vinyl just isn't feasible. The costs are to high. I wish we could.  I really wish we could.
Perhaps a live recording of a rare/unheard song burned on to usb flash drives?

  :x  And I thought I'd reached the stage where I'd never have to think about working overtime.

Idle, how much interest is there inside Melvins (and with Mackie and Haze) to actually get the movie produced? I'm assuming neither Melvins, Mackie or Haze are going to make any money from it directly, so any prizes they are willing to contribute will have to be ones that don't cost them anything in the first place.

With Melvins, Mackie, Haze in mind as the main contributors of prizes:

1. A VIP pass for a day or a weekend at a Melvins-related Grumpy's Bash. A meet-and-greet, free lunch with the band, a poster and a shirt signed by everyone concerned and a look round Haze's studio and garden shed.

2. Ditto for a Los Angeles-hosted gig or Residency.

2. A guest list pass for 1, 2 and 5 shows. Valid anywhere for that year.

3. A morning being taught how to use Mackie's Deeohgee Press and running off the sleeves of the next batch of 50 letterpress CDs yourself.

4. Carte blanche to produce the artwork for a future Melvins release / shirt.

5. An invitation to sit in on a Melvins recording with Toshi and the band.

6. A round of golf with Buzz and Alice Cooper. Free lunch included.

7. A morning of drum lessons with Dale and Coady followed by sitting in on drums that evening for a song at the gig.


Physical Prizes
Mackie/Haze/Walsby prints.

A special repress of Shit Sandwich with test pressings.

haha, Mostly what Jules said.

- a small run of C45 Cassettes with Autographed liners of un-released Demos  [-o<

-pack of half a dozen Buttons (Large or small)

-a guitar lesson From Buzz if hes a good sport about something like that.

- a Drum Lesson From Dale too would be pretty gnar.

But like, yeah, studio Tours and Promos and passes etc would be divine.

I will Toss a few sheckles in for sure.

One cool thing the group did that put together the Crystal Lake Memories documentary on the Friday The 13th movie franchise was to offer up a bonus disc of extended/uncut interviews for pre-orders & early birds. I think it was normally a 4 disc set but if you got in early it was 5 discs something like that.

I heard it about it too late and I'm still sore about missing out on the bonus disc!

Title: Re: The Colossus of Destiny: A Melvins Tale *Kickstarter Thread*
Post by: buddy holiday on January 31, 2015, 04:24:37 AM
take some live recordings that appear in the movie as full versions and record them to cassettes... seperate the tracks with selected spoken quotes from the movie, by the band members for example.
something like 3 to 5 songs interupted by 2 to 4 spoken pieces.
put the same program on both side of the tape, make a xerox cover.

kinda like a promo tape for the movie.

Do they design all these Melvins shirts with their eyes closed!! I like that there are lots of different ones for fans but if i was someone who wished to purchase them to actually wear, i would be crying out for something decent. The one above looks like something a 12 year old would be seen in! Although i do see that purely as a collectors piece it would be desirable.

I love Colossus  :oops:

Brian designed the shirt with a little bit of our input. There will be plenty of other things to choose from if you don't like the design of this particular item.  I'm 38 and I'd happily wear it. To each their own.

It's not a very memorable run, except for maybe the cool JR Jr cover. I don't remember at all what's inside it.

ps- I think the shirt design is very cool.

Welcome back, Nootch!
I halfway agree on the maker of the shirt. My question is do you put them in the dryer? I don't, and my shirts last forever.

I absolutely plan on donating to this. What I would like to see more than anything is just a list of the givers in the  credits....even if teeny-tiny font for 1/2 a second. More than a t-shirt or a sticker, it would feel like being a little part of history. Regardless, I am so grateful that this is happening and I cannot wait for the final product.

This design is a mock-up of a shirt we hope to have as a prize when we start the kickstarter for The Colossus Of Destiny: A Melvins Tale.  We have no set date for when the kickstarter will launch, but it's not to far off.

Believe me, you all will know when it launches.  I'll make sure of it.

How about if you donate $40 or more you get a shirt.  Sort like a tv fundraiser except you get a Melvins shirt instead of a tote bag.  Then you could go up from there.  $100 gets you a shirt, stickers, and your name in the credits.  The prizes could be whatever, but you get the idea.

This is academic. You will discover you have to pick your kids up from school at exactly the same moment the Kickstarter is announced. This will make you fly into a frustrated rage which will inadvertently cause you to break the DC connection to your laptop. You will then graze your knuckles on some old drawers looking for the battery which you will later remember leaving at your practice room the previous Friday. Further fumbling with your mobile in the school playground will cause you to drop it into a small tank of waste oil, disabling it forever. When you finally find an internet connection, 43 minutes later and in the office of the school nurse, you will discover you have missed the Big Prize by only one minute.

Is there gonna be a "big" donation to get EVERYTHING?
This is academic. You will discover you have to pick your kids up from school at exactly the same moment the Kickstarter is announced. This will make you fly into a frustrated rage which will inadvertently cause you to break the DC connection to your laptop. You will then graze your knuckles on some old drawers looking for the battery which you will later remember leaving at your practice room the previous Friday. Further fumbling with your mobile in the school playground will cause you to drop it into a small tank of waste oil, disabling it forever. When you finally find an internet connection, 43 minutes later and in the office of the school nurse, you will discover you have missed the Big Prize by only one minute. This will cause you to type DONKEY COCK FUCK in at least three different Subjects here, and two FUCK SHIT PISS AXOLOTL WHORES on the AmRep forum.

How about this idea for a Kickstarter prize?

Breakfast or Lunch with Melvins at Cracker Barrel during Melvins tour!
(Up to the winner to get to Cracker Barrel on time, Melvins are not responsible for people arriving late and missing out. Up to the winner to pay the bill for everyone at the table. This way the Melvins at least get something out of the meal!)

I've spent the last three years working on this movie.  Every vacation day I've had, I've worked on the movie.  Every extra dollar I've made, has been put towards this movie.  Every day after work, I work on the movie. Every weekend, I work on the movie.

So yes, it's something to get excited about.  All of Bob's effort and all of my effort on this comes down to whether or not the movie gets funding , so that we can finish it.

That's a shame.   

I would have thought that for digital content like that, it should have been included at all subsequent price points.  Do you really expect people to contribute more than once?

I guess I'll be able to "source" these other exclusives, but it's not ideal, especially after dropping $300 for the limited edition box.

Looks like me and only one other person picked the Skinner $100 donation so far. I'm kinda surprised. It's an awesome design.
It's exciting to watch the numbers go up and up and up! I got in right before it hit 5k. While at work even. 8)
I'm so excited for this and I just know it's going to get funded. Like I've told Hanzy several times in the past three years he and Bob are doing "Gods Work". I'm also grateful that I was smart enough to save that $100 just for this. I wish I could give more, fuck I wish I could pay for the whole thing!

It contains an extra disc of full length interviews, live performances and videos, behind the scenes footage and many more surprises.."]


Will the 2 or 3 disc DVD set be available to buy after the documentary is presumably released? (without the hand crafted wooden box, of course)

Or is the extra disc of full length interviews, live performances and videos, & behind the scenes footage only available to those who dish out the $300 now?

[Pledge $300 or more.  "Collectors Deluxe Edition 3 Disc DVD or Blu-Ray*. Packaged in a signed and numbered hand crafted Wooden Box, with art by Mackie Osbourne. It contains an extra disc of full length interviews, live performances and videos, behind the scenes footage and many more surprises.."]


Will the 2 or 3 disc DVD set be available to buy after the documentary is presumably released? (without the hand crafted wooden box, of course)

Or is the extra disc of full length interviews, live performances and videos, & behind the scenes footage only available to those who dish out the $300 now?

The third disc will only be available in the wooden box set.

It's day 3 of our Kickstarter and we're on their front page as a featured project in the Film & Video category! We're at 44% of our goal, but there's still a long ways to go. Thanks to all the friends, family, and others for sharing this and helping us out! Please, keep sharing, and help us get to the finish line!

I agree. We need to get Lori, Mark and Joe in this documentary. It will be a total fucking shame if none of the three of them take part. I mean MATT LUKIN took part and he fucking hates Buzz and Dale more than anyone on the planet!!!!!

Is a kickstarter in and of itself, something to get excited about??? Then again i don't really know how they work so im intrigued nonetheless.

I've spent the last three years working on this movie.  Every vacation day I've had, I've worked on the movie.  Every extra dollar I've made, has been put towards this movie.  Every day after work, I work on the movie. Every weekend, I work on the movie.

So yes, it's something to get excited about.  All of Bob's effort and all of my effort on this comes down to whether or not the movie gets funding , so that we can finish it.





sincerely appreciate it. really.

and thanks to whomever made sure there was going to be a bluray of the film.

also all the rockstars that mention melvins as the rock-gods (they truly are) in every other interview should donate... get anselmo to finance the rest!!  :D

If there is any of the involved that has experience with sale, either via phone or face to face, you should start up contacting pronto, cause there could very well be a possibility
for them to earn money on it. That chap in Redey Fox could be contacted, isnt`t there a football team that uses Melvins chants as intro, contact them, Third man records.... Etc, etc. This donation idea is good, but you could reach the goal much quicker if you divided up whats left in either one part, or 2,3 or more parts, and sell it. The movie should be avaliable for the big festivals around the world to screen, many of them have cinemas where they show alternative films and rockumentaries during the festival period. If there also is some stuff about
KISS and Nirvana on this film, then you can be pretty sure it can awaken the interest of their fans. Some inside stories etc. Interview with Gene Simmons? One could do interviews with
many of the known bands Melvins has toured with, Tool etc, interview with Jack White. It must for all sake not become a sell out film, but if money is an issue and if one wants to maybe
also have the possibility to earn some grands on it, the possibilites are many. It will not be a walk in the park this eaither, but with some effort the goal can be reached.

you only need to raise $1,562.96 a day will meet the goal!
Curiously, that's down to $1260.95 per day now, so it's heading in the right direction. I think the next week or so might be interesting seeing how it goes. Whether it evens out a bit or keeps going. As long as the money steadily rolls in as it has done i can't see there being a problem. It's funny that im not personally interested in pledging to the film BUT i have found myself really interested in this project as a whole and seeing how it's going.

I feel the same way. Basically, what's in it for me? I don't give a shit about getting "free" downloads in return, & I am not impressed by the T-shirts(sorry not a comic fan) and I have bought 3 of Walsby's Melvins shirts in the last year. Sorry I'm just not throwing down $300 to get a 3rd bonus DVD that won't be in the retail release. I could close this thing out right now to finish it. But for something I'd watch 3 times a year?, no thanks.
 
I think Buzz/Dale could care less if this thing gets released. If they wanted it done, it would be, on their terms. I think they're looking at it as a true fan project, and are sitting on the sidelines sort of hoping/wanting for it to be done in this new way via kickstarter.

How about if you donate $40 or more you get a shirt.  Sort like a tv fundraiser except you get a Melvins shirt instead of a tote bag.  Then you could go up from there.  $100 gets you a shirt, stickers, and your name in the credits.  The prizes could be whatever, but you get the idea. 


Sun Ra was RIGHT!

I looked up "melvins tote bag"

(http://rlv.zcache.com.au/i_love_melvin_i_love_you_melvin_heart_bag-r080224ffbd1743da8334c3eb04d28914_v9isk_8byvr_324.jpg)

I'd buy it

I still think you should go with the tote bags

One thing that irks me about the pledge (as far as i can see) is that i do think that people that pledge 5 or 10 dollars should also get at least a download of the film. After all a download doesn't cost anything and i think that would only be fair given that those people contributed to it's funding.

It seems a little weird to me that someone could pay to make this happen yet not be able to watch the documentary. Although i understand that the intention is to get people to select an higher pledge amount in order to be able to see it.

Ya know, I'd love to quote some of the things you've said, but since you keep deleting them, I can't. 

For someone who doesn't get the interest in the kickstarter, you seem to have a lot of complaints about it.

You want Bob and I, who have spent a total of more than 7 years between us, and tens of thousands of dollars out of our own pockets, to give the film away for $5?!? $10 ?!! 

Are you serious?  Are you really serious?

You have no idea how much work we've put into this.  None.  Because if you did, you would never say something so ignorant.

HERE'S MY LAUNDRY LIST OF COMPLAINTS SINCE EVERYONE IS BITCHING AND MOANING ABOUT EVERY SINGLE GODDAMN THING EVER:

1. If I pledge more than 50$, I should get the shirts, the hoodies, the posters, 2 copies of the extendo uber mega deluxe come-with-a-fleshlight-on-the-box-sos-i-can-fuck-it collectors edition,  with pizza delivery for a week from Buzzos dogs and a vial of every bassists blood, in a handmade Brazilian Rosewood coffin designed by Haze (spoiler alert, there will be skulls and goats), hand etched by Kevin, painted pink by the members of Boris, and with a hand numbered replica of the bottle or can or whatever it was that dick in Canada threw at buzz.

2. If I pledge more than 75$ I want Hanz to send me the camera he filmed this doc with so I can have a shot at doing it right, because he's obviously fucking it up, mailing it in, washing the true KVLT church burning past of MELVINS away for some light, pooftery affair, shitting the bed big time, only spending years and years of his life and time filming what is ultimately going to be a half assed, boring, and sexually confused bit of dare I (ironically) say "art," that makes Michael Bays Transformers 2 look like Schindlers list finger popping Precious whilst Blazing Saddles and Philadelphia awkwardly paw at each other in the corner.

3. Everyone who pitches in 5$ should get a written apology from Hanz (for not filming this in ultra space titty three dimensional 4k HD), Brian (for creating this board where we can endlessly bitch about every single goddamn nitpicky thing we do, don't, or may know about Melvins), the Band (for existing in the first place), Dave Ghrol (for not playing drums all that much anymore), Courney Love (thanks for the blowjob, my dick just fell off), and GLEN BECAUSE HE'S A FUCKIN' GREAT SOURCE OF POTASSIUM BUT HAS AN INCREDIBLY HIGH GLYCEMIC INDEX.

4. If there isn't an extended shot of some hipster girl in Olympia painting her toes while wearing a Melvins tube top, I'm pulling my funding, and me and Dave Ghrol are gonna go film a U2 documentary.

5. Actually, just give it away for free because fuck you, I'm an entitled little shit who would rather come here and complain about something that is truly amazeballs because I might have to pay a reasonable amount of money to see it than just be silent and let everyone who has a 12 foot raging full body iron balled stiffy be more excited than DC at a shoe store.

Just pitched in 8). Went for the T-shirt/DVD dealio.
 The list of musicians you guys tracked down is impressive, you should also track down the guys from Clutch & Primus. They'd be great interviews. On the other hand, am I the only one who wants to see some people interviewed who might have bad things to say about the Melvins, just to make it more interesting?  I'm thinking along the lines of:

Courtney
Joey Shithead
Zakk Wylde
Steve Albini
Steve Vai (though he's such a nice guy, I doubt he'd have a bad word to say)
Greg Ginn
Perry Farrell

You won't be seeing a dime from me, the lighting in that video is poor (might as well point the camera at your chili ring) and I don't like the timbre of Coadys voice. Also, he drums left handed, that's not how God intended it.

Wait a minute? Will I have to pay 300 US Dollars to watch the movie? That`s 2000 norwegiaqn kroner and that`s an amount I can`t defend vs my family to spend. I shall not
say what amount I will give, but it`s not near that amount. I did not know it was download only, I though this would come out as a dvd or something and then I would certainly buy it. I`m not interested in any prices, I will give just to contribute to it getting finished, but if I will have to pay 300 usd to see it, well then I will have to join the asshole club. Cause
300 dollars is much money and I can`t afford it. But please fill me in, if I contriubute with let`s say 70 dollars, what will that give me?

Who in the hell ever said you had to pay $300 to watch the movie?

Who said it was download only?!?

Have you even looked at the Kickstarter page?

My bad, I read the line Ian wrote about 20 vs 300 dollars, I skimmed. Bedtime in Norway now, my head is tired. :lol:

Btw, I think it`s ok with a limit on 20 pounds to be able to download, I will give much more.

Idlehanz has blocked my pm, so I will have to just say what I wanted to pm, that my responce was wrong, I`ve deleted, delete yours and we`re ok.

PS! I think also that it ain`t good if a mod blocks pms from forumists, most probably Idle ignores me to, but that`s no suprise. And a mod ain`t excactly doing what a mod shall do if he doesn`t have the possibility to see if forumists steps over the line. Then it only becomes title. So here you have it Idle, the Bergenzian asshole contributes to this cause although you can`t stand his scthick. (And I ain`t excactly thrilled to contribute to a filmmaker who is behaving generally hostile towards me for some reason I don`t know)

As far as for the movie, I wish for all the Melvinsfans that i will come through.

Not the time or place for this. Don't worry about it. He's got a lot going on.

Me and Idle go way back, long before your time, we used to get along. I choose when the time and place is right, the most important thing is that this message gets out and
then the mods will delete it, after reading what my opinion is, and that`s ok by me. But no one should expect me to look at them as stars for making this movie, especially
if they don`t reply and act ok towards me. Everybody works as slaves on this planets, no one has forced Idle and others to make it, I reckon they do it cause they love it, and
that they`re not crying after every workday. And you Meez joke about my sponsor idea, but that would give the creators much less stress and more space. Instead of gallopping towards a deadline. It`s not excactly finding up the wheel-idea, many has gone down that road before and it doesn`t have to destroy the project.

I don't remember why or when I blocked you. Consider yourself unblocked.

Neither myself nor Bob has ever expected to be treated any differently, and I really have no idea why anyone would think we would.

I am going to correct any bad information, and defend whatever choices we've made in regards to this film.

We appreciate the ideas and thoughts about how to treat the film, who to interview, and how to market it.  I can assure you we've been up and down every one of those roads many times.  Getting a certain person for the movie can be a great idea, but it doesn't mean THEY want to be in the movie.

We're trying to make an entertaining movie about the Melvins. Thats the nuts and bolts of it.

I'm trying to answer whatever questions I can from you guys. I'm also trying to let you all argue and discuss it.  But I can't sit back and let incorrect information be said without saying something back.

Man - some of you all are dicks. Most of you all are cool. I'm stoked that two dudes here on the forum are making this film. The dicks should keep their peeholes quiet. You wouldn't act like such entitled asses if you were hanging out in person with the guys making this film. Knock it off, grow up and pinch it off.

That is a seriously great list of people coming together.

I hope for:
Mark D
Lori B
Joe P

even if it meant it delays the film!!!

Other people that would be great to have interviews with would be:
David Scott Stone
Lustmord
Joe Baressi
Adam Jones
Leif Garrett
Henry Rollins
Victor Hayden
Dan Raymond
Gene Simmons
Dale's Mom (she had so many great stories when I talked to her in Olympia at the 20th anniversary show)
Mackie
John Zorn
Mike Patton
Chris Dodge
Brian Walsby
Dylan Carlson
Krist Novoselic

Again - I am stoked that this is going to happen. Great work guys. I am not sure if you are going to have any narration over the movie at all - but if you need any - let me know. I do voice over work and would donate my time and work. If no need no worries!

Cannot wait!

I'm yet to contribute, unsure which reward to chose. Not the biggest fan of the t-shirt designs but think they'll look great as posters. Personally I think the $300 option with the third disc to be the best reward, however $300 buys a lot in this world and I can not afford to  flash my cash around so frivolously but definitely want to be in on this. Round of applause for the filmmakers efforts thus far...

How fast are the credits with our names going to be rolling? Maybe they could be done Star Wars style...

Something to note to when helping out projects on Kickstarter - remember - it is not JUST about the rewards you get it is about supporting the project.

As soon as my new credit card arrives (tomorrow?) I am going with the $300 option. If I look at it as just $300 for the items it might appear expensive. If I look at it is helping a project reach it's goal so it can be realized and I get some cool stuff? Then it is a steal!!!!

I don`t want any reward, it`s ok for those who want, but in this matter it`s just to get the film going. I gave on third of the amount you gave, Sadcorps, I have obligations economically zu hause with kids etc, so I must limit it.

ANY amount helps us reach the goal. Every donation is appreciated.  Promotion via word of mouth, or sharing on facebook, Twitter, or any other media is also a huge help. Getting the word out there to people.  There's only 23 days left. Seems like a lot, but it's only 23 days.

Something to note to when helping out projects on Kickstarter - remember - it is not JUST about the rewards you get it is about supporting the project.

As soon as my new credit card arrives (tomorrow?) I am going with the $300 option. If I look at it as just $300 for the items it might appear expensive. If I look at it is helping a project reach it's goal so it can be realized and I get some cool stuff? Then it is a steal!!!!

I don`t want any reward, it`s ok for those who want, but in this matter it`s just to get the film going. I gave on third of the amount you gave, Sadcorps, I have obligations economically zu hause with kids etc, so I must limit it.

The film is indeed the real reward here! :)

This is exactly how I feel about it. The prizes are a bonus for sure but what I REALLY REALLY REALLY want is this movie to happen.
Schnab, I was only able to swing $100 and I had to really save for it. Kids are expensive!

If you do share, please include the kickstarter link as well!

I didn't mean to show subtitles right in the movie. Maybe you can make it as an *.srt file or something like this. I understand it's not so easy with all that typing, timing, etc., so if not - no problems.

After a few positive, yet slower pledge days recently, i think the last 24 hours have been really good for this project. The target amount is within touching distance now. I have no stats to back this up, but i have a feeling that as the figure gets closer it might pick up a bit of steam as other people see that it is becoming a reality. Im guessing one more week will do it. Assuming the project is green lit, it will be interesting to see how much over the target figure is pledged.

Your donation would be greatly appreciated. Even 5 bucks. Er...quid, rather.

Seriously tho, there is literally no way in hell that this can't get funded now. Just over 11 days left and only a hop, skip and a jump over $6000 to go. It's in the bag, and i must say im impressed that such a huge amount has been gathered.

Unfortunately, this kind of thinking can keep it from reaching the goal.  It's not over until it's over.

Also, keep in mind that money that you pledge will not come out of your account until the end date of the fundraiser.  If you're holding out for something because you're waiting until payday, the money will not come out of your account until the Kickstarter is over.

True. Although i can't see a problem, yet you are right - it's not over until it is. You don't have to answer this of course but i do wonder how you imagined the kickstarter would do prior to it starting. Did you think it would have been funded quicker, slower or about the same as it has been doing? I think it's in a good way at present anyway. If there was only 2 days left it might be worrying but 11 days is great.

I had no idea how quickly or slowly we'd reach our goal.  Of course I'd hoped it would be there already, but you can't forsee these things.

Ok, friends, enemies, boardies in general, and otherworldly heathens......Heading into the weekend we are sitting at $69k raised out of the $75k we're hoping to reach. We're so close, yet so far away. Please help us out if you're interested in seeing The Colossus Of Destiny - A Melvins Tale movie become a reality. I can't thank you enough if you've already pledged. If you're thinking about pledging, please do so! You're helping a project that a collective 7+ years of sweat, tears, and probably a little hair loss have gone into making, and we promise it will worth every penny. Check the link below for details.  If you share it, please share the trailers and the kickstarter link so people can find it easier! 

Thanks!!    :cheers:

At 73, 055 now! It's close!

I've seen quite a few musical kickstarters come and go with the successful ones usually asking for small amounts. Dylan Carlson did one a few years back and had to pony up the last 10K himself to make it a success. Bootsy couldn't do it. Any big rock star sure as hell couldn't do it (Dude from Creed as a prime example :lol:).

Bootsy couldn't do it.

I remember Bootsy's. It never made it because it was misguided. First, his ask was $100,000
Second, his goal if funded was to 'promote unity' - he never offered anything concrete, just an
ambiguous platitude that he would promote 'Universal Groovement' if he was funded. He should
have spelled it out as a film, DVD, CD, and world tour if funded. Oh well, I still love him! He would
be a great Melvin. My dream is Bootsy recording and touring with Buzz and Dale, full on Sludge-Funk!
A totally new genre!

Just got an update about the boxes:

The 100 Box-sets we made available have all been accounted for, but we have a plan for those that didn't manage to get one. We had the number of 200 in mind for how many we were going to produce, which would have left us with a 100 spare for band, friends, competitions etc. So with that in mind we are going to make another 25 available here for backers to purchase.

I concur. I write such things for myself, merely because i have an interest in it. After all, lots of people have a passing interest in all sorts of things that they wouldn't usually be fans of. I don't think there is anything wrong in that. Although i agree with you that any comment i give isn't exactly required. But then, what posts here (on the board) are?

Pretty soon this project will be funded and the film will be made. Any comment i give/gave will be long forgotten and i wouldn't have it any other way. It's about the film itself not me.

i vow to never forget...

Hey guys and gals....

     Just wanted to thank you all for your support, and for sharing this thing with everyone for the last thirty days.  I believed that we'd be funded, but I didn't know how long into this that it would happen.  I also didn't know how much over we would go.  To see the final number sitting just shy of $99k is pretty damn amazing.  So on behalf of Bob and myself, thank you!

 :cheers:

you only need to raise $1,562.96 a day will meet the goal!
Curiously, that's down to $1260.95 per day now, so it's heading in the right direction. I think the next week or so might be interesting seeing how it goes. Whether it evens out a bit or keeps going. As long as the money steadily rolls in as it has done i can't see there being a problem. It's funny that im not personally interested in pledging to the film BUT i have found myself really interested in this project as a whole and seeing how it's going.
Open up that wallet, penny pitcher!  :P

I feel the same way. Basically, what's in it for me? I don't give a shit about getting "free" downloads in return, & I am not impressed by the T-shirts(sorry not a comic fan) and I have bought 3 of Walsby's Melvins shirts in the last year. Sorry I'm just not throwing down $300 to get a 3rd bonus DVD that won't be in the retail release. I could close this thing out right now to finish it. But for something I'd watch 3 times a year?, no thanks.
 
I think Buzz/Dale could care less if this thing gets released. If they wanted it done, it would be, on their terms. I think they're looking at it as a true fan project, and are sitting on the sidelines sort of hoping/wanting for it to be done in this new way via kickstarter.

Throw Back Wednesday.

CONGRATS ON EXCEEDING THE GOAL!!!!!!!!!

If I remember correctly Chief did indeed apologize and gave you money. So you should thank him too.

Chill out. Yeah, I want to see this film. I'll put in something soon here. I hope you guys aren't getting stressed out over this project and the rest goes smoothly. Sorry for being an asshole :P

He turned around swiftly and jumped on board. I'm not gonna go through this whole thread and quote all the positive things he had to say about the making of this movie but they're there.
Sometimes it you're just an asshole snd we can't help it. It happens to me constantly followed usually by immediate regret.

ANYWAY!!!
CONGRATS!!!
Looks like the kids are gonna be eating dog food cause I'm gonna have to be extra tight until payday!

Idle, we've been friends now for long enough for me to remember when this was all just a pipe dream. The amount of dedication and hard work you've put into this so far is staggering. The mental and emotional energy is you've put in is just as amazing. I knew it would happen. I kept telling ya, "It'll happen" and "Remember you're doing Gods work." and by fucking God look at this shit! LOOK AT IT.
It's finally become a reality and I don't know Bob from the other Bob or any other Bobs but I have no doubt that you're involvement was the apples for the pie. Thank you. I'm beyond grateful to have a chance to be a part of this. My favorite band ever. Who could ask for more?

What is really interesting to me is that this was funded with just under 1,000 people. The TRUE Melvins fans. Anyone not in this exclusive club of 1,000 people are just fair weather fans.

I did not receive a 2nd email regarding DVD or Blu-Ray. I didn't answer which one I wanted, because it looked as if they were only asking about the shirts, which I assume will be ready to ship in a month or so. I just assumed we'd be asked way later in the year about choice of disc(s).

It would have came from kickstarter, not us. 

More specifically "no-reply@kickstarter.com"

Type that into your search with whatever email program you're using, and also check the spam and trash folders.

Yes, they will be.  I made four different "albums".  The 2 song album has two songs obviously.  The 4 song album has the two songs from the 2 song album and two additional songs.  The 6 song album has the four songs from the 4 song album plus two additional songs and so on.

I've seen a smattering of people on various sites saying that they have not received their download codes.  If anyone has not yet received their codes, please check the following:

Check your spam folder.  The email address info@melvinsmovie.com isn't something you probably get a lot of emails from so your service may have shoved it away.

Do a search in your email for info@melvinsmovie.com    That may find it.

If you still cannot find it, send me an email at  info@melvinsmovie.com.  I have a list of all codes sent out and to which email, as well if they've been redeemed or not.  I can fix you up.

I'm copy/pasting what I wrote on Facebook here, but you get the idea.  If anyone knows anyone that has any footage of the band, please talk to them and share this.  We're getting down to crunch time and we need footage, specifically from 1983-1988.  Please help us get the word out.  Every share helps.  Any leads, questions, or ANYTHING....email us at info@melvinsmovie.com

Hello everyone.
Do you have footage of the Melvins? Would you like to see it used in the upcoming movie? We are looking for any footage of the band, in any kind of format. Anything prior to 2006 would be best, ESPECIALLY ANYTHING FROM 1983-1988. It's been very difficult to come across any footage that has Mike Dillard, Matt Lukin, or Lori Black in it. We understand a lot of you aren’t to keen on giving up your video that you shot and are holding on to, but now is the time to share a snippet or two of that never before seen show with the world. If we use anything you send us, you will get credit in the film. We will NOT trade away the footage, or use it in any other manner without your consent. Please look at this as a way of making the film better for everyone. If you have footage that you’d like to let us use, or have any questions, please send an email to info@melvinsmovie.com.
Fans, backers, and friends. Please share this with everyone you know. You're a fan and we know that you have friends that love this band. Help us get the word out.
Thank you!

Have you thought to check with the EMP Museum in Seattle? 

They had a ton of footage of various bands during their grunge exhibit, including a lot of interviews with Buzz.
I'm not sure if they had any live Melvins footage from the 80's or not though.

I think Brian Walsby has been a really great Biographer, His artwork and story telling style Really brings it out best in my Opinion.

i've ever seen any footage of that tour (or gig??). I'd like to know more about what that was all about.
The Cameron Jamie/melvins tour was amazing.  For example, at the UCLA show, the crowd contained a lot of people that usually wouldn't go to a melvins show.  The concert took place in a theater, and everyone was seated.  The melvins stood in front of the screen, the lights dimmed, and the movie started.  The focus was on the screen, yet you could still make out the melvins playing in front, a live soundtrack.  At one point, Dale picked up a cymbal, started clanging it, and running around the theater, making a full loop, ending back behind the drum kit.  Music-wise, I think it was mostly songs from the 'pigs of the roman empire'.

yeah the Cameron Jaime music was basically a modified version of POTRE.    and this was at the height (IMO) of their noise production.  and when I say noise production I don't mean noise production.   I mean NOISE PRODUCTION.

Here's the only clip I could find. I thought I remembered more of them floating around, but yeah here they're doing a indistinguishable version of Roman Bird Dog and I do remember seeing clips with them doing POTRE too. I wish I could've seen this in person.

Just got an email about the limited Blu-ray/DVD box delay.  The email stated mid 2016, So I'm assuming it will be about a year before it's shipped.

Honestly, Idle, do you think a delay of over a year could happen??
I know how things go (and this is a massive project) and I could possibly see this drawing for a while.  Your thoughts??

Please prove me wrong.

I'm not sure which email you are referring to specifically: I will PM you about it. 

Our goal is to have the film ready for theatrical release in early 2106.  However, we are still looking for additional early footage and continuing to add interviews.  The production process may take longer than originally anticipated, but we want to make sure we are doing this right. 

Keep in mind that having the film ready for a theatrical release is different than having it ready for physical production on Blu-Ray and DVD, especially since those will contain additional features. 

As we get closer to a finished product, we will be able to give more specific info about the release dates.

Sounds about right, remember that it's a tink bit more complicated than taking a memory card full of interviews to Walmart and having them printed out.

That's wasn't my intention and I'm  sorry to Idle & co. if it came across that way.  No disrespect. I guess I meant as long as it comes out. I know some kickstarters that never see the light of day after getting the cash. Just hoping it does see the light of day. That's all I meant.

No absolute date has been set yet, but we are getting close.  Keep an eye on the FB page for the details.

Here's a video we released first for backers, and now for everyone else.

This was filmed by myself with help from Cheeseburger/Bro Hammer at Buzz's 50th at Grumpys.

This isn't associated with the Melvins in that sense. You may be able to order it from the Melvins Revolve store someday, but for now it's something you you'll have to buy from the filmmakers. They will announce anything pertinent like that as soon as they can, so watch this thread.

HAHAHA!!

The Silent Movie Theater / Cinefamily cinefamily.org is one of the coolest movie houses in Los Angels - perhaps the world. Back patio where they often have BBQ or potlucks, with booze drinking and weed smoking. The first four rows of the theater of black leather couches. Often have concerts there too. Saw Dale and Coady do a drum battle there a few years back.

Those photos of the viewing in the movie theater alone are enough to convince a person that the outcome will be something worth checking out.

I attended the premiere yesterday. I love well made music documentaries like this. Great interview footage with Buzz, Dale, ex-members, current rotating members, collaborators, associates, friends, relatives, musicians and even Melvin himself. As a Melvins fan since 1987 it was amazing to see their entire career covered in a short period of time - from the beginning in Montesano/Grays Harbor when they were just kids wanting to rock to their current state of making a living playing music as they see fit and completely redefining what it means to be a band in the 21st century. When you look at their career of 33 years condensed into 2 hours it becomes incredibly apparent that there is no other band like them - and no other band that works as hard as they do. While every interview in the film is great and often times funny as Hell, the best interviews seem to come from Buzz and Dale themselves. All in all a great rock and roll documentary that doesn't cover a band burning bright, burning out and rising again - but a band that instead never stops, changes direction at the drop of a hat and defines it's own path. To display just how insane the Melvins are - the film was completed a couple of months ago. Since then, they have brought in yet another new bass player, (Steven McDonald of Redd Kross), completed a US tour with Napalm Death and Melt Banana, released an album under the name Mike and the Melvins (with Mike Kunka of godheadSilo on bass, Kevin Rutmanis on bass, Buzz on bass and Dale on drums) that was started back in 1999, and are getting ready to release an album with SIX bass players throughout it's tracks. Most bands in that time would just develop a good drug habit. Go Melvins!!! In attendance were: Buzz, Dale, Kevin, Jared, Steven, David Yow, Lustmord, Joey Osborne, Mackie, Sheperd Fairy and probably a shit ton of other people I couldn't/didn't see. Great job to Ryan and Bob on this. It did not disappoint - and to be able to squeeze ALL of this into 2 hours and make it THIS good was quite the feat!!!!!

NOW - it is time for all of us Kickstarter backers to be P A T I E N T. There is still much that this film will need to do before it gets in our hands as physical copies. Remember - PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE.

And it was great to meet DC!

You're a handsome sumbitch, yes you are. Sorry we couldn't chat more- I was a bit dumbfounded with the amount of influential people in the room. Got a pic with Lustmord, and a very drunken one a bit later with Yow.

Thanks for being a cool and awesome person.

The points you made were spot on- there was no "oh fuck we crashed and burned and then either all died or rose from the ashes," just a singular drive, laser focused dedication to their craft. I'm happy there were no lows- only shifted gears.

 Such a good movie.

You're all in for a serious treat.

The Kevin incident was treated very kindly. You could tell it was an emotional subject for them all - and luckily there was eventually a happy ending.

This is all opinion , and I may be way, way, waaaay off from the intentions of the filmmakers, the band, and the people involved. I'm just a humble fucknut. Opinion. Not the Word O Christ.

There's some talk of Kevin's "demons."  Kevin is a humble and wonderful  person, who knows he made mistakes.  Not a lot of detail there, because honestly, that's not my or your business . That's about how it can be interpreted. If you want dirt on these guys, look elsewhere, like the early days of this forum, the speculation of people just like you and I who weren't there, or the condemnation from former Melvins.This information swings from "wild speculation" to "looking back at the past and smearing shit on it." There is no room for dalliance in this film, no room for he said, she said, we said, whatever. I know you're interested in this aspect of the band. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't,  too. But if they don't want to talk about it, then you and I have to accept that as a part of the bands life that doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things.

It paints no one, and I mean no one, in a negative light. That's such a refreshing change of pace from every music doc I've ever seen. Someone always has to be the Big Bad Motherfucker. Nobody is a bad guy here.

You and I, everyone else, we don't get to know how everything went down. It's not something we are privvy to. We, you and I, we will never know the inner workings of this band. The doc isn't about that. The doc is about the things this band has done for 30+ years that we are all excited about. You should focus on how good your favorite band is, and don't sweat anything else besides the release of their next single, EP, album, cassette, 8track, or flexi.

Melvins> every other band ever. 414 songs.

Though I see what you mean, I think you're reading a bit too deeply into my question. I don't really care enough about the Melvins (or anyone I don't personally know) to hunt down all the minutiae of their personal lives, nor do I really consider it nosy to have questions about some discrepancies in the narrative they've offered over the years (and by this I mean the Deutrom interview vs. the accounts of the other members). if I never find answers to those questions, that's fine. But I don't place them on any mantle for my worship, so I guess I'm also not too worried about their "privacy" either. It's not as though these issues haven't been brought up by the respective members in the first place.

Post by: DC on May 22, 2016, 10:50:38 PM
I may be reading too deep. I'm kinda loaded.

It's very healthy that you don't place them on a pedestal. I certainly do, which is why I'm such a winkie around them. How do you tell someone they've influenced every riff you've ever written without sounding like a buttface? There's no way to maintain dignity if you're being direct.

Joelk, I don't think I got anywhere near an answer that you wanted.  I respect what you or anyone else has to say about this movie that, well only me and like 2 other people on the board have seen. I want to assure you that it's absolutely what you want as a Melvins fan. No question. You will learn surprising things, beautiful things, things you would never know otherwise.

This movie is Fantastic, and that's my final say.

It's funny to think of things like that, how not participating might suggest a certain thing. Negative connotations maybe. Yet at the same time i guess no interviewee (or at least ones with strained or tricky relations) knows quite how what they say will be treated or presented or in what context. After all, no one wants to come across, rightly or wrongly, as the bad guy. So i can respect both the desire to revel in the past in nostalgic terms or alternatively the feeling of just wanting to move on and not look back. To draw a line under it.

Indeed. Although it would have been great if they would have agreed to be interviewed (I mean, the Matt Lukin interview footage is amazing!!!! And the Kevin footage too!!!) - they are still covered in great detail and all of them given proper respect by Buzz and Dale. No one was trash talked or shit upon - and you could tell that it is never any fun for them to fire someone.

I did personally reach out to Mark D in hopes that he would be interviewed - he told me that he was happy there was a documentary being made and that the music that he made with the Melvins was his statement on the Melvins. Gotta respect that!!

The documentary was amazing and I cannot wait to watch it again - and again.

Yeah, I more than appreciate their efforts.  A while after Idle said they were done bugging them I was at a show that Thrones was playing and afterward I politely bugged Joe about it.  He was good natured about it and even smiling but he said he just couldn't do it.  Of course he then told me a few stories that would have been great for the movie (I had a few beers in me so not a lot of detail), guess I'll just let that be my own personal bonus footage.

Saw it a few nights ago in SF. It was pretty good but gotta say I was a bit disappointed overall. Would have liked to see more extended live clips and maybe studio clips as well. The audio recording/editing of the interviews was very inconsistent which was a little distracting. Production quality overall could have been better IMO.

I'd give it something in the B-/C+ range. Possibly unrealistic expectations because of the subject matter.

I wrote about it at the PuffingtonHost (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/melvins-documentary-the-colossus-of-destiny-is-a-worthy_us_5793fa2de4b0e002a31376a5#comments) If anybody is interested in my thoughts.

Feel free to share it around on facebooks, or tweet it to your snapchats or whatever so that it can eventually sit next to the latest Kardashian antics or whatever.

Hey friends, Lets just get right to the point.
We know you’re anxious to see the movie and we are really anxious to show it to you. But please keep this in mind that we are two guys with day jobs who made a film about The Melvins. A big studio didn’t make it and we don't have a team of people on hand doing publicity and lining up a worldwide screening in every town and city across the globe. We know you want to have the movie shown in your town and we are slowly trying to get as many screenings out there as possible.
We are extremely proud of this movie and we want it to be seen in a real cinematic environment, because ultimately that is the best way a film should be experienced. We want to have Q+A’s afterwards and meet the fans where possible. It’s been very fulfiling for us to show the movie and see the reaction to it first hand at the handful of screenings we have done so far. It’s as exciting for us as it is for you. We are in correspondence with people everyday about showing the film in theaters and at film festivals, and we will hopefully be able to announce a bunch more screenings starting in October.
We know the people who contributed to the kickstarter want their dvd’s and we promise we are working on it. There is so much extra footage that we want to include on the discs but please realize that this is going to take a little more time than planned. But we will work out a way in early 2017 where the contributors can get an online version of the film to watch.
If you look around at other films that are made, they do not just get put out as soon as the final cut is mixed. If we send it out to everyone right away then it will lose it's value due to online pirating and sharing. This is our prized project that we worked for years to achieve and we don't want to just watch it fall from under our control. We are certainly not cheating anyone out of anything, and everyone will get what they are entitled to, but please be patient and respect what we have achieved upto now.
Thanks so much for your understanding
Bob + Ryan

- DVD set for the end of may. Pre-orders set but backers get the goods first. Disc 1 = documentary; Disc 2 = 2014 live set, bonus live & interview clips; Disc 3 = unseen interviews, live stuff, bloopers

To add to this, I'm pretty sure the third disc is solely for those who paid quite a bit extra for the box set version of this release.

Sorry for not seeing this earlier. 

We decided that we'd rather get the sound fixed than be able to hit the April date we gave ourselves.  People will remember that we didn't hit our April goal, but we would always remember that we didn't make it sound as good as we possibly could. And having the sound fixed benefits everyone. When we were able to get Kurt to fix it, we jumped on it.

Endless respect to Bob and Ryan for making this happen, seriously you did a phenomenal job!

Overall the documentary does a great job of capturing a 30+ year story in only two hours without going overboard on any subject. The archived snippets fit each bit of timeframe to a tee.

Little things that stuck out in the best way possible:

- The captions of  "_____ declined to interview for this movie" and how perfectly timed they were.

- Kurt's picture of him sleeping when mentioning Houdini.

- How only an hour in and they just got to Kevin joining.

- The quotes and Gene Simmons "bridging" chapters.

- Kevin's chapter.

- Buzz's work ethos and observations on the music industry and people.

- The Lustmord/Jello chapter

Really this is a phenomenal doc that tells a great story, scratches the surface, teaches lessons and exudes the imagination all at once. A huge cast of guests to share the accolades of a band we all love.

Seriously, I'm excited that we are getting it out there finally without too many hiccups.  There will always be problems, but so far its been mostly smooth and the reaction has been mostly positive.  If anyone on here has had a problem streaming, please PM me and I will help to resolve the issue as quickly as I can. 

Its pretty mind-blowing to read all the nice things being said.  After working on this for 5 years, I'm stoked to read such good things ( and I'm sure Bob is as well).

I like the little breaks you took.  Started with some history, and then Buzz talking about releasing the small batch records, then back to the history time line.  etc. 

Hands down you really put in a lot of time for love. and did it justice.

loved it.     

Third Man Records has a killer sound system, FYI.

some of those old clips...  Dale bashing away on LEEECH...  EYE FLYS from about 1985...  oh man.      the Night Goat part..   and so on and so forth.

plus I chuckled sensibly thinking that my homie Ryan was probably the guy sitting next to Buzz in the car. that information was later verified. 

I never met the guy face to face in my life.   but strangely I felt like an old high school friend was there with him.  I felt like I had some secret deeper knowledge than the rest of the folks in the room.    Hey Ryan!  thanks for letting me live vicariously!!

I just watched it today for the first time, I thought it was really well done.  I was glad to hear details about certain eras like lustmord.  Kinda weak for Joe Preston not to participate, also Lori Black.  It could have been 3-4 hours long easily if you did a ton of full live songs interwoven in.  Not sure if it would have benefited from a full time narrator or not, but it works as is.  Thank you for your hard work.  When are the limited edition dvd sets going to be going out do you think?

Just curious, but is there a set date they are going to start shipping the blu rays?

I heard the VHS's are due to ship in a few weeks, with the Blu Rays and DVDs to follow shortly.

Hey Bob and Ryan, just got that email. No worries at all with the delay. Were all so appreciative of this project, keep in mind that when you're frustration levels are at currently max level. No rush and thanks again for making such a great documentary on one of the most underrated bands of all time. 👍

Sorry for not getting back sooner.

So most of you should have seen the email by now. We've encountered problems with the production company sending back test dvds that aren't working or are completely missing extras. We don't want to send out a shitty and incomplete package so things have been delayed. Again. Which sucks all around. Add the fact that I've been having a ton of doctor appointments, MRI's and a lumbar puncture (spinal tap) over the last few months and things have just been slowed way down. The good news is that the movie is available for purchase and to stream at Vimeo.

Again, sorry for the delays.

The only person that I was curious about was Tim Moss. I know tons of footage was recorded and cut down to two hours, but was he interviewed at all? DSS woulda been cool too, but If I remember right, he was booted from the crew for making crude remarks about Mackie or something.

If you haven't seen it, we just updated the FB page.  The test disks came back with no problems! Third time's a charm!  So we have ordered the production to begin. 

I'm done giving dates because we and everyone else are just being disappointed by errors and so on.  But now that the test dvd's came back looking good, they're being printed up.

Reason I'm asking is, the only time I was asked about my postal address was in that questionnaire 2 years ago and I have moved since then.
I'm a bit worried, because I never received the reward t-shirt and didn't even get an answer on Kickstarter regarding its whereabouts. I'm hoping for a bit of clarity, so that it works out better this time.

One of the coolest things about the DVD is that the menu page is silent =D&gt;. I absolutely hate when DVDs have the menu page BLAST a 30 second loop of music that's 10X louder than the feature's volume level. It's totally unnecessary. Very cool if that was intentional guys.

Finally just finished watching the documentary (on YouTube ha!). It was kinda how i expected it to be. A history lesson leaning a little more to the uninitiated than the hardcore aficionado. Which of course is absolutely fine. I did think it was interesting that it wasn't quite chronological. After the Kevin chapter it jumps ahead to Everybody Loves Sausages and then back to the BB guys joining the band. I wondered whether the chronology could have been kept intact but i think that was an obvious intention to discuss Clem Burke and his contribution BEFORE the documentary gets into the concept of double drummers. It was a shame that the audio fluctuates so much between some of the interviews. That seemed to be more of an issue at the beginning but not so much further on. With something like this it is tricky to consider how much talk is included balanced by performance footage. I think it was about right here. I enjoyed watching along but, speaking for myself, i wouldn't really be interested in delving back into this as such. It was fun to see Dale's mum being interviewed!

Just got my Kickstarter funded Blu-Ray in the mail a few days ago. Looking forward to watching the second disc (since it'll be new to me). Watched most of the first disc earlier today; I had already seen it in the theatre and streaming on Vimeo over the last year. Audio levels for the interviews is still quite inconsistent and there is also some weird audio/video pausing and glitching a handful of times (not horrible but a hair distracting when it happens). I would have appreciated more live and behind the scenes recording studio stuff as it feels quite heavy on dialogue, but it is still worth seeing for any Melvins fan. Probably won't reel in any new fans though.

Although unintentional, i must admit this post actually gave me a chuckle. I could be more blunt and straight to the point with my reply to your comment here in reference to something. However you wouldn't like it and rather than do so, instead i'll simply, vaguely write - you don't recall what you've wrote in the past do you?


Glad someone said it
I must say the opinions are interesting. In a way i don't really mind how people perceive it.


don't forget he said he never wants to see it again.
Hey Glen i never specifically said that. I said, and i quote, "i wouldn't really be interested in delving back into this". I'd see bits of it again somewhere down the line potentially. It's one of those things where someone might pull it off the shelf once in a while to watch again as they please. For me it (mostly) covers what we as more studious fans already know or are familiar with so it's not like, lets say a live show or something which might have you itching to see it more often or more than once. It's essentially a history lesson and we know the story. Although i didn't know Mark Deutrom's name is actually Mark Deutron!


No response?
On this occasion yes.

Don`t shoot the messenger. It`s not Ians fault that someone was idiotic enough to put it out on Youtube and if you read the comment section, you can see that Meez was out there before Ian. So why not bash Meez for not telling Idle that there`s a foul video on youtube, before Ian comes with the message that he`s seen it on youbute. For all he knew Idle could already be aware of it, so how should Ian know this was breaking news? I like both you and Ian, DC, I understand how you and others can get pissed on Ian, but I don`t like this senseless bashing of him, cause it`s not deserved everytime. Your last tiraded just comes out as mean and it doesn`t suit you, you are much to nice fella to do that.

To be fair, i absolutely think i did see it BEFORE Meezer. He probably just searched it out after i had mentioned it.

To clear some things up, i wasn't actually LOOKING to find the film. Instead i went on YouTube to see if there was any new interviews with the band. BUT that's when i discovered the film was on there. Am i going to NOT watch it? Of course im curious and wanted to see it so i did so. I was excited to see it! That's all really. I could have chosen to stay quiet and say nothing about it here for 6 weeks and let many others view it also but i didn't. Oh well.

I put the name of the film in the search bar on YouTube after Ian pointed this out. I told Ian in a pm that he's a dirt bag but I still love him. Pay for stuff, especially this one. Or just shut the fuck up.

Told him the same, but in another manner. I told him I understood that some here viewed him as an asshole, but that I love him, in a strict platonic manner of course. Ian is a good man and he`s extremely interesting to chat with via pm, fantastic fella.

you can see that Meez was out there before Ian. So why not bash Meez for not telling Idle that there`s a foul video on youtube, before Ian comes with the message that he`s seen it on youbute.
To be fair, i absolutely think i did see it BEFORE Meezer. He probably just searched it out after i had mentioned it.

To clear some things up, i wasn't actually LOOKING to find the film. Instead i went on YouTube to see if there was any new interviews with the band. BUT that's when i discovered the film was on there. Am i going to NOT watch it? Of course im curious and wanted to see it so i did so. I was excited to see it! That's all really. I could have chosen to stay quiet and say nothing about it here for 6 weeks and let many others view it also but i didn't. Oh well.
That's not what this is about at all.  There's a big difference between what could have been "well I just randomly happened upon it on YouTube and here's my opinion" versus "ha!" which basically translates to disrespect and more crying for attention.

If you had one ounce of respect for Idle and the hard work he put into this over the years the answer would have been quite clear.

See, in a way i agree with you. But in another not. Do you or others (myself included) pay for the videos we watch everyday and enjoy and may post here on YouTube? Or some other cool music film that may have been uploaded somewhere and we share with others? In some ways there is no difference. In SOME ways one could say.


That's not what this is about at all.  There's a big difference between what could have been "well I just randomly happened upon it on YouTube and here's my opinion" versus "ha!" which basically translates to disrespect and more crying for attention.
"Translates" yes. It translates as such. Does it mean that is what was intended though? Maybe. Could i have wrote it differently? Sure! But i did not. Now of course, for various reasons, something like this is a real hot potato! Many here may read between the lines and assume it's a full on diss! Was i utterly scathing of the movie in what i said? No. I think i was pretty fair. Others won't agree, sure and that's perfectly fine. Same as some people think it's okay to view things for free while others don't. Personally i don't really try and make sense of it.

Im sure the filmmakers themselves know (as well as you and i) that for better or worse, once something is out there, it really is OUT THERE. There's no re-sealing the lid and no one can control that. Sure this particular video could be removed but at some point another and another leak will spring up. If it isn't YouTube it'll be some other place. I could have mentioned that on here in a number of ways - none of which change the fact. Remember i didn't upload it myself. You can't blame me.


If you had one ounce of respect for Idle and the hard work he put into this over the years the answer would have been quite clear.
Interestingly i was talking about this very thing just a few days ago with someone. I know what you say here is true of some people. Probably many fans. A number of people would take the stance you suggested there. But i am not one of them. You see what i mentioned recently is that im the kind of person that will experience something regardless. Take new album releases for instance. Soem people hold out and WILL NOT listen to a bands album until it is physically in their hands. That's cool. I can respect that but that's not me. I will listen to a new song or record as soon as i can. I don't even care too much about the quality - i just want to hear it! Call it curiosity, call it weak mindedness, call it ripping people off. Call it however you see it. But personally i think it's at least some respect to the filmmakers that i actually WANTED to see it. Imagine if i had discovered the film and thought "nah, not watching this bullshit!". I didn't and don't feel like that. As i said a few posts back, i was excited to see it. I wasn't NOT going to see it. If you don't share that mentality that's okay.

I think Idle is totally capable of setting it straight by himself, he doesn't need a ton of people having a go at Ian. Settle down folks, at least Ians early "action" took down the illegal stream. Max 200 views before it has now been shut down. But sooner or later it will leak out again as Ian said, either via download or stream somewhere, maybe on youtube again. I guess that's how it is these days.

Idle did attempt to set straight himself and in turn was ignored and then ridiculed.  Again, it's not the fact that Ian watched it on YouTube, it was the way he presented it.  I'm more than certain the filmmakers were expecting criticism, that's not the issue.  It's the blatant disrespect that he has shown over the last few years of the development of this film and topping it all of with this.  Although I'm sure he can find a way to drag it even further with pointless over-analyzation and complaints.

Ian does and says stuff others wouldn't, perhaps not in his everyday life, but here he does, that's not new and people should start to understand that that is how it will be. If one overlooks these small wrongsteps, Ian is the best chap ever. Even though I and others say to him that this and that was perhaps not wise to say/write, he will still do it, he's consistent in that way.

I appreciate how diplomatic you always try to be and I'm typically the same.  And as I've said before, taking things that are said on the internet so seriously probably means you've got more important things in life you should be worrying about.  I'm also not trying to imply that just because you are a Melvins fan, or to an even lesser extent, the fact that you post here means you are required to like the movie.  I just don't appreciate disrespect of this kind and I'm not going to overlook it just because he's consistent in his ways.

If I had made f.ex a movie/documentary and Ian hadn't like it, he wouldn't just shut his mouth. That consistent an unnecessarily honest bastard!  :lol:

1. It's impossible to even conceive the idea of a screening in Chile (and in Temuco?... ha!, no fucking way).

2. Apparently it's only available as a blu-ray/DVD set and my BR player is old as fuck plus there's the problem with the so called "world zones".

Youtube & torrents unfortunately for Bob & Ryan will be like whack-a-mole in the coming months. As far as Ian critiquing the film, he should have kept it to himself. You didn't pay a dime for it you cheap fuck, and no one cares what you think besides. :lol:

 I have noticed the sound issues in the interviews in the first half hour or so, mainly when Buzz speaks in that room where he's sort of behind Dale. Thought it was my age/hearing or speaker placement.  It's not crystal clear, but it's not worth bitching about either, very brief. As far as the slight glitch/pauses, that doesn't bother me being it's a film w/ mainly dialog. If it were a full concert movie, then yes, reason to bitch.

If I had a gripe, it would be, (and I can't be the first person to bring this up), but why was the album Hostile Ambient Takeover totally skipped over?
 IMO it is Melvins at their absolute peak w/ Rutmanis, but I can see then on the other hand that there is no real drama/story involved. Just Melvins punching the clock and slamming out one of their best albums ever. With the Trilogy part in the film you have the label switch to Ipecac w/ 3 albums at once, and the special guests on Crybaby. Lustmord was interesting in the POTRE section which led to Kevin's demise. I didn't even know what Lustmord looked like prior, that part was too cool.
 Did you guys reach out to Adam Jones at all? If he had been involved, might there have been a brief H.A.T. segment? Personally would have loved to see some early '00s material on disc 2, rather than say the Cleveland Joe footage. But that's what I have the TV Eye Vol. 3 DVD for. Priceless footage on that disc. 8) Just my 2 cents.

 I will be enjoying this film and the 2nd disc for a long time. I need to buy a new TV. Still a tube style, do not generally care about HiDef/flat screen. I could see my name in the credits on vimeo via laptop, can't make it out on my TV.

Perhaps i should have kept it to myself. True. But then this is a discussion board last time i checked. As for being a "cheap fuck", well actually you are 100% right there. Probably the only thing anyone has said in the last few pages that was true. Yep, i'll be the first to admit that i AM indeed terribly frugal. You are no doubt bang on the money about people not caring what i think either.

Ah so in your mind this documentary is different to any other movie? Somehow with some twisted logic you deem it fine to watch one illegally and the other not? Simply because someone you half know made it? How morally proper of you.

Sometimes i think some of you guys see only what you want to see. Go back and read my original post. Was i totally critical and ripping the film to shreds? No, VERY far from it. I said what i liked and mentioned it was quite a well balanced movie. Which it is! I discussed in a sensible and not at all derogatory manner the chronology of it too. I was (and still am) interested in how the movie was structured. But what a surprise you and others missed those bits right? You just jumped on half a sentence. Upset that (im guessing) you had paid while i hadn't.

Deatheats, what I can't understand is how you can wind yourself up this way. I payed, I also think it was odd of Ian to engage in a movie he earlier said he didn't bother to much for, but to get this crazed? If anyone should be angry, it should be Idle, none of you other guys. You had nothing to do with the film process. And to paint a pic of a thing that I'm sure Idle and the co workers enjoyed more than calling it strainious hard work with blood sweat and tears. No one held a gun to their heads. I would have loved to make such a docu and be able to do it on behalf of the band I love. This borders to a bit pathetic, someone should really take a real deep thinking about what on  earth they are doing. Get a grip.

I'll try to make this the last I comment on this because Ian just seems to be one of those that thinks "it's the rest of the world who is wrong, can't be me" who doesn't acknowledge or take accountability when their side of the argument might not exactly be the right side.  For me it just comes down to the disrespectful nature of how he's approached everything to do with this.

I don't care that he criticized the movie.  As with any project this big there's going to be the fair share of criticism.  Like I said before, posting here doesn't mean you are required like the movie but I would at least think criticism would be constructive accompanied with respect and appreciation for the hard work that was put into it.  Personally I don't mind the sound 'issues'.  Has every Melvins show or interview outside of the movie sounded perfect or exactly alike?  I'd much rather have it the way it is instead of a squeaky clean polished Hollywood production.  There were comments he made over the last couple years during the development of this that were neither supportive or respectful of the work going into it. Again, politeness is not a requirement for people posting on this board but what's the point? 

I actually don't care that he watched it on YouTube.  It's going to happen and the filmmakers probably knew that well in advance of release.  Once again it's the disrespectful way he presented it.  The "ha" that was used was more insulting than any bad review on this board could ever be.  Idle asked for a link and was seemingly ignored.  I'll give benefit of the doubt and maybe Ian didn't check the board for a time and didn't see Idle's request.  But when he did respond it did not answer Idle's request and it was insulting and childish. 

There's no need for name calling or insulting Ian.  That won't accomplish anything.  But it's now also obvious that there's no point in trying to have a dialogue with him about this.  He doesn't consider other points of view and doesn't seem to have the ability to take a step back and check his words and actions.  None of this is going to make me enjoy the film any less.

Oh, and to address one of his counterpoints....I can say with all sincerity that I have never once illegally downloaded anything off the internet.

GiveMe45 i'll answer each of your questions in turn here.


because Ian just seems to be one of those that thinks "it's the rest of the world who is wrong, can't be me" who doesn't acknowledge or take accountability when their side of the argument might not exactly be the right side.
It's fair to think like that of me. You might well be right, but at the same time im definitely not as hard headed as you might think. Perhaps many people get that impression here from my exchanges but you'll have to just take my assertion that im more willing to look and listen to conflicting views then you give me credit. Probably not on all things granted but still i do so.


Once again it's the disrespectful way he presented it.  The "ha" that was used was more insulting than any bad review on this board could ever be.
I know what you mean there. You may not believe me but the "ha!" wasn't actually intended in an insulting way but in a "wow! look how i've seen it!" attempt. A kind of excited expression/reaction. Especially in light of all the, sort of, you have to see it in this way discussion. Me thinking i may not get to see it. A bit like saying "i walked home and found a £10 note on the floor! ha!".  Obviously i can see how you could interpret it differently but that was all it was. Trust me if i wanted to be insulting i could have done so much more than a mere "ha".


Idle asked for a link and was seemingly ignored.  I'll give benefit of the doubt and maybe Ian didn't check the board for a time and didn't see Idle's request.  But when he did respond it did not answer Idle's request and it was insulting and childish. 
No i did actually see the request. To answer this is a bit trickier. This is all by the by of course but firstly i didn't want to post the link because basically i KNEW it was doing exactly what i SHOULD'T do. Now... that aside i didn't respond to Idle's request because in effect it wasn't a request. He could have wrote "could you send me the link please" or PM'd me but instead it was a one word "link?" reply. Almost a hard fisted demand you could say. He didn't have to reference that i had gave an opinion on the movie. He doesn't have to do those things of course but i thought on this occasion it was a tad blunt and to the point. Also i think it's fairly well known here that im hardly the most well liked or appreciated person when talk of the COD film comes around. There has been many times i've mentioned the movie (sometimes with positive comments, sometimes less so) where i myself have been ignored. I didn't see anyone cause a scene then asking why did Idle ignore me. That is why i wrote "on this occasion yes". It wasn't ridicule it was me distancing myself a bit from the brewing trouble. Do i really want to duke it out with one of the filmmakers who (much like everyone else here) may over-react?? It was easier just to keep it simple and back away.


But it's now also obvious that there's no point in trying to have a dialogue with him about this.  He doesn't consider other points of view and doesn't seem to have the ability to take a step back and check his words and actions.  None of this is going to make me enjoy the film any less.
I actually beg to differ on that one. It was unfortunate (as it usually always is) that people aren't more willing to have this dialogue in which you mention. Too many people bypass that and go straight to anger. That is pretty self evident in the responses here. I suppose people have a right to be angry if they wish to be. I understand that but it's unfortunate.


None of this is going to make me enjoy the film any less.
Nor should it! Whenever i talk about something be it a new Melvins album or the band themselves or indeed this documentary, i don't intend to sway public opinion. It is merely me saying what i thought of something. Okay the opinion might be a bit extreme or even entirely in the minority but that's okay. If you and countless others love the documentary - great! Im not looking to disrupt that whatsoever. But at the same time im not looking to blur out what i think of something either. I have to be honest or at least my version of "the truth".


Oh, and to address one of his counterpoints....I can say with all sincerity that I have never once illegally downloaded anything off the internet.
So you have NEVER listened to a song on YouTube EVER?? Honestly? Well.. i suppose you could well be right perhaps you haven't. But speaking generally, we all consume entertainment that we pay absolutely nothing, ZERO towards. Idle does to!

 Well, knowing he hasn't been involved with anything Melvins since that last tour w/ Nirvana, it's no shocker. Plus did you hear Buzz's Grohl story from the acoustic tour? :lol:  I was more suprised that any of the Tool & Isis dudes & Hank3 weren't involved. Claypool couldn't have been too hard to reach either, doubt he would have said no and am sure he would have had some funny road stories.

Wow, this blew up.

 I split my head open above my right eye a few days ago and have been in bed since.  But I’ve seen this thread growing.

So I’m going to respond to a few things I’ve read. 

Ian, you are one of two things.  Either the best troll an internet forum has ever seen, or a miserable cunt. If you’re trolling, then congrats, you’ve duped us all.  If this is the real you, I’d just like to say, go fuck yourself. You actually had the gall to come into this thread at one point and complain that people were talking about the movie.

I can’t be bothered to read everything you’ve typed because I just don’t give that much of a shit, but, the fact that you didn’t contribute to the movie, shit talked it, and watched it for free (and laughed about it) makes you a cunt. I’ve worked on this movie since June of 2012.  Bob has worked on it just as long.  We spent our own money getting this off the ground.  We spend weekends, vacation time, and after work hours working on this.  We put ALL of our time for years into it.  YOU did nothing but bitch and complain, watched it illegally, and laughed about it.  And for that, again, I say fuck you. You, and people like you are taking money out of my pocket, Bob’s pocket, and the band’s pocket.  Try to justify it however you want, you’re a cunt.  Fuck you.  If I didn’t make it clear enough, FUCK YOU.

On to other things……

We are fully aware that it’s going to be pirated and there isn’t anything we can do about that.  BUT, I will fight every fucking youtube link and illegal stream I find because I worked on this thing for 5+ fucking years and I have earned every fucking penny that comes to me.

There’s some sound issues.  We all know it.  When Bob and I first started, we knew fuck-all about making a film.  We didn’t know how to properly mic someone.  We didn’t know an overhead fan we could barely hear would be picked up so well by a lav mic.  We weren’t professionals.  Still aren’t!  We did the best we could and paid people to make it better.  It’s not perfect, but I guarantee its WAY better than what we originally had.  Anyone who was at the first few viewings can attest to that.

H.A.T.

Fuck, we did kind of skip that didn’t we?  It wasn’t on purpose.  And we did reach out to Adam Jones but he declined.  There’s a lot of people we reached out to who declined.  It wasn’t that they didn’t want to talk Melvins, but they just didn’t want to do an interview. 

To those of you defending us, thank you.  And as far as some of the criticisms, thank you. There's such a thing as constructive criticism. If I or Bob ever do another film, we will know what to work on, what to spend more time on, and what parts need a little more finessing.  I don't think anyone realizes that this was made by two fans.  Not film-makers, fans.  Neither of us went to school for this.  Neither of us come from a film-making background.  We got no backing from any company.  We bought the equipment, learned how to use it, made calls, made plans, bought flights, rented cars, rented hotels, slept on floors, slept in the car, had our ladies mad at us, missed out on hanging with friends, and generally devoted five years each our life to this. This was a literal labor of love, made by two guys who fucking adore the Melvins. And two guys who wanted them to get the respect they deserve.  It was worth it. We have a 2 hour film that I am extremely proud of.  We have hours of concert and bonus footage I am extremely proud of.  I have my name on a piece of art that I am extremely proud of.  On the flip side, if you don't feel like that is worth anything to you, if you haven't contributed a god damned thing to the band, and if you just want to sit back and shrug your shoulders in your little black hole of existence and pretend that you are a fan, then by all means go ahead.  I know what you really are.

Well said, Idlehanz. I can't join you in the "fuck you, Ian" part - he truly doesn't know what he's doing -but I totally understand your sentiment. The film is a labour of love by two huge fans, not an attempt at an Oscar. That being said, you guys did a great job and everyone knows it. I'm very happy to have contributed even a meager amount.  All of the coulda/woulda/shoulda shit has no place and no merit. It's strange that the voices of the socially retarded are often the loudest and provoke the strongest reactions when they should be rightfully ignored.

I've said it before and i'll say it again - you guys have some crazy, cherry-picked logic. Also the tendency towards exaggeration and anger has been amazing/perplexing to observe. A strange bunch indeed. "Quick to judge, quick to anger, slow to understand."
Title: Re: The Colossus of Destiny: A Melvins Tale
Post by: sadcorps on September 02, 2017, 08:16:18 AM
I think Idlehandz is spot on. Ian is a master troll, using his trolling powers in the wrong place against the wrong people. I mean, he is REALLY good at it. Right down to his latest response where he comes out trying to gaslight everyone with his "Wow, you all have some wacky logic" technique. Ian - I do not have a stake in this game other than: 1) I like the movie 2) I helped Kickstart the movie 3) I know Idlehandz personally and know him to be a straight up great guy who was very passionate about a project that took a massive shit load of energy, time and money. He took a huge risk in many ways - imagine if the movie would have SUCKED? (I have another friend that recently completed a kickstarter documentary film on a band he loved. And well, let's just say it was a stinker). This movie is his baby, and one thing you do not do is fuck with a dude's kid.

I am sure that you are a cool dude to hang with when you are not behind the keyboard using your trolling powers for evil, Ian. I mean, you listen to the Melvins which means that you can't be all bad. I suggest trolling for good instead of evil. I do this quite often - troll the enemy, troll the trolls who troll for evil. It is a bigger challenge, much more rewarding and can be fun as hell. Anyone that has been friends with me on Facebook as most likely seen me do this.

Let's get this thread back on track. People are receiving the DVDs - the movie that 99.9% of us has been waiting for is now OUT! I hope they keep filming and interviewing over the next 35 years so we can get a Part 2!

I must say, i do appreciate that mature post Sadcorps even if we do see differently. Outside of a few responses here the majority of exchanges have been conducted far from a civilized manner. When people start throwing out the "fuck yous" and "fuck offs" and other insults, that tells me a hell of a lot about those people. I will never respond the same way to others so i do appreciate a well written, mostly well meaning response as you have provided.

Funnily enough i actually agree with you on much of that you wrote. I KNOW Idle (and Bob) spent a great many days, hours etc on their efforts. I know it was/is their "baby" in a way too. Despite what anyone might think i respect that truly. Im not a troll though. Well....not intentionally anyway. Sure it seems (and this isn't isolated just to the movie) that many views and opinions i have are not exactly echoed among the rest of the participants here. That's cool. I don't expect everyone to see things the same. I wish others would allow me the same level of leeway at times.

I mean, that's the nature of the internet beast.  Even Buzz addresses the issue in Idle's flick.  There's a ton of Melvins' fans that collect and will have to own everything.  But I think it's the people that actually upload the content to the internet that should be shamed.  Fans in this type of genre are as sarcastic as they come, Ian being no different and that's punk rock for ya.  Remember, tough love is still love.

I still need stuff from Tsunamis, Gay Witch Abortion (I know they have "a couple of things" prepared for this month), Yajaira, Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats, Gary Baseman, Chet Zar, Minichamps and so on... Maybe I will send Idlehanz a pm asking for the movie in a not-too-distant-future but I can't do it now. It sucks not to be wealthy.

My 2 cents is that some chaps here go way over line intheir attacks on Ian, way over. It would have really nagged my conscience if I had come with a tirade against someone that hadn't hurt me directly. Some of the attackers suprise me, cause normally they are fine lads, with others it's more like here we go again. Like shooting fish in a barrell to attack Ian now, have som pride and decensy folks. There are people here who still loves Ian, Let it be.

Ok, enough with this shit already. Some people have nothing better to do in life than express their meaningless opinions from behind their modern day typewriters, it's the way of the world. And it sure as hell is easier doing that than spending 7 years of your time being creative and pursuing a goal of making a film about a band they admire. Because that's just what myself and Ryan did, and we are both very proud of the finished product. Sure, there are technical issues in there, there are people missing that we would have liked to have had a presence in it, and there just isn't enough time in the world to cover every aspect in detail of the band's history. But you can't ever win in this modern age, the typewriters start a tapping and there you have the views both praising or criticizing your beloved work. We get that, and there's nothing you can do about it. We also understand that once your product goes out into cyberland, pretty soon it will end up being copied and people will get to watch it for free. If it ends up on a torrent page then there is nothing at all you can do about it. The issue that started this little feisty debate was someone saying they had seen it on youtube, sorry let me read the correct quote (on YouTube ha!). Why the typewriter just had to add in the little cackle after the wording i have no idea. And there is where you crossed the line Mr. or Mrs. ()()((((()))))) or whatever the hell your typewriter code wording identity is. You were rubbing salt in the little wound weren't you? And Ryan simply asked you, quote - PM me a link? Because his first instinct was, damn it, the film is on youtube, we have to get it taken down. And he did ask in a decent way, but got no response. So here lies your problem )()((()((() which you have never gone back and thought about and typed, yeah maybe i came across as a smug arsehole right there. But then why would you? I remember reading little things here and there over the past couple of years from behind your typewriter regarding this project. Unimpressive little things to say the least. But we get it. You have opinions, and unfortunately in this day and age, they are able to be heard by a few dozen people. I'm sure you have a much more interesting life than i will ever have, and i am so jealous of you. Please send over some links to your creative output as i am very looking forward to seeing them. And maybe, just maybe, if i have an opinion, i might just keep it to myself.
We made this film because no one else could be bothered. We love it. The band loves it. A very, very large percentage of people who have seen it love it. We want more people to see it and love it. We would prefer that all people paid to see it, but that is impossible. And we can accept criticism, hard as it is. But when someone comes along all smug like this, i just have to say, go ahead, try and do something to match what we have done, impress me, show us what you got.
And if you can't, then go get a life you worthless piece of shit (HA!)
Case closed.
Let's move on people, and forget the bitchers and celebrate The Melvins.

Okay cool, I wasn't sure, I'll probably buy a copy as well as have a downloaded version too.

Thanks guy! Keep up the good work buddy!  :P

In fact I did recieve an E-mail confirming things.. but my mind is thick as pea soup what with all the acetone I used to clean the perfect binders at my old Printing Job with for years and years... my brain ain't the same.

I figured $50 bucks wouldn't cover the shirt and a DVD but I mean that would have been a good deal for me more than helping you guys right...If I get a copy that's Totally outstanding, It's hopefully put a bit of gas in your tanks or at least a coffee or lunch to keep you going at the *very* least... I'm really proud of you guys for going for it, inspired by the fearlessness of the best band...I only wish I could have donated more.

Those shirts were Righteous. It was hard to pick one but I went with the Skinner one in the end cuz It looked like an Acid trip vision while listening to HAT all peaked out or something.

It's a big deal to me! It means a lot, all you guys making this happen, I think it's really awesome.

Actually... had a random Melvins dream a few weeks back.. I was helping Buzz Get Golf balls out of the Fish pond by the back patio around the side of Dales house.  :lol: I think It was because I've been waiting to finally watch the documentary and it's been on my mind in anticipation...Dale doesn't actually have a fish pond does he?  :lol:

Finally got to watching this - good job guys!

Well put together, entertaining and cohesive.
Pretty impressive how many heads turned up to say a few words. (Although Josh Homme seemed like the kid who didn't study for the test, pulling shit out of his ass that sounded on topic).


But I do have to point this out...NO mention of H.A.T.?

It's the mirage of Melvins albums at this point!



PS: The Kickstarter backing could have paid for some decent mics though don't you think? :P As great as the shot of Pinkus on the toilet was, I could hardly make out anything he said.


EDIT: Just read Idle's post - I stand corrected

2nd EDIT: Just read the shit-flinging over the last couple pages....jesus guys  :shock:

Something im interested in with the film is how people will respond to it who DON'T know the band. Those who are not at all familiar or partially so with the ins and outs. For me i think that was something that hampered my own enjoyment in that i was way TOO familiar with their history. I knew all the details and essentially, each time, what would come next.

I say this because a few years ago i watched a documentary about some aging metal band (whose name i totally forget) who had released a couple of records and then called it quits. The film picked up in the present with a reunion tour etc and seeing what had happened in their lives. It wasn't really a great documentary and their music kinda sucked but i did enjoy watching BECAUSE i knew nothing about this band.

Got my Vimeo link from the Kickstarter email but there's no download button for it and I'm not getting any response from emailing info@melvinsmovie.com...

I got it to download a couple of weeks ago, looked great on my iPad. No pauses that I heard the discs have. Oh, and it was great!

Actually just taking a look at it, you are right it WAS Anvil!! I see they have had a longer, more extensive history than i mentioned too. Have you seen that documentary yourself? It was good.

I haven't, but I remember hearing about it when it came out 7 or 8 years ago that it was really good. It used to be on Netflix, not sure if it still is.

Been meaning to see the Anvil thing. I've read commentary from at least a few different people who were entirely unfamiliar with the band and honestly thought it was a mockumentary about a fictional band (until being set straight much later), which makes it sound a lot more interesting than it probably is

But anyway, I'm glad this is finished and can't wait to fork over for a physical copy and give it a watch. And there are very few things I care enough about to buy physical copies of anymore.

Hey there special edition box backers!

We’ve been getting questions as to when the 3 disc box set will be released and the answer is….not for a little while.  And that is pretty much my fault.  About a month ago I received a pretty severe concussion that hospitalized me and now has me in three therapy sessions per week as well as not being able to do my normal job.  It has affected my memory, my sleep, my stamina, and mostly just my thinking. As a result, I have not been able to work on the third disc of extras. Some of it is done, but there is a lot more I want to add to it.  I’ve had trouble remembering how to edit and use keyboard shortcuts that I’ve been using for years.  I’m trying to do a little bit every day in hopes that it will help me remember what to do. I sincerely apologize for the wait.  Your patience will be rewarded. 
Thanks,
Ryan

Get well soon, Ryan :(

For real - no hurry on this! Good things come to those of us who wait. We already have access to the film so at this point, we are just talking about a physical copy and bonus stuff. No hurry - get better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Even if it takes a year, I am cool.

I missed the pledge funding, and would love to buy some physical manifestation of it that includes a CD with the live recordings of it because I collect CDs still (I'm sure plenty here would prefer vinyl).

Considering getting the 2 disc DVD here, though:

i truely hope idle is getting better of course, but what you mentioned is exactly what I would expect.
also considering that the money from the collectors sets made-up a substantial part of the overall kickstarter funding. without these sets the goal might even not be reached at all.
I would at least expect more frequent updates as to when we could expect it.

 I would say just go with the 2 DVD set. It's worth it, and the concert and extras on Disc 2 are great. I pledged enough to get the 2-DVD set with the Walsby tee. Happy with the donation/purchase. That sucks for those who chipped in for the uber-deluxe set, hoping to have it by now.

Maybe someone can help me out, I'm a little confused. Is the deluxe edition of the documentary coming with a live CD? I thought you just got some digital downloads or something.
Title: Re: The Colossus of Destiny: A Melvins Tale

The deluxe, 3 disc edition is supposed to come with an additional dvd (making a total of 3 dvds/blurays) that includes additional footage.  No cds.

So I thought I’d drop in for a little update for everyone that is waiting for the wood box.

Some of you may know, some may not, that I hit my head back on Aug 30th.  I received a severe concussion.  Severe enough that I have not been back to work since. Severe enough that it actually changed the vision in my right eye and I now have to wear glasses for reading. Before that, I had perfect vision.  I’ve been attending three hours of therapy per week, on top of visits to neurologists, concussion specialists, and optometrists that specialize in concussion related vision changes. I still have a little double vision. Though it is improving, I still have difficulty remembering words, and how to get to places that I’ve been going to for the last ten years. I’ve been in a very slowly clearing fog for the last 4 1/2 months. Unfortunately, that has meant a delay in getting the boxes out as I am the one responsible for getting the last bits of interviews and live footage edited down for the 3rd disc of content that goes with the box. This is on my shoulders, not Bobs.  If you need to vent about it, vent to me about it. I understand being eager to get  something you’ve paid for. We're eager to get them done and shipped.  I just ask that you stay patient while I work through this concussion. I’ve been slowly getting back to editing on small pieces here and there, and I’m doing a little more each day. 

PS, I have not read through the last few months of comments that I have missed out on. If I didn’t answer anyones specific question, I apologize.  I’ll take a closer look later.

Those of us waiting on the box version all have access to the streaming version of the movie. I think we can all handle waiting for the package and bonus material considering the situation. I just hope you keep getting better and feeling better.

I know this sounds strange, but my sister in law got a severe concussion about a year ago and she said that having an amethyst crystal on her bedside table while she slept sped up the healing process dramatically.

I'm not usually into the whole crystal thing, but if it helps who am I to say otherwise.

Good luck with the recovery Ryan!  Your health is way more important than our precious Melvins boxset!! (wait did I really just say that  :P)

How the fuck would she have the slightest clue about the speed of her healing process? Maybe it was the bedside table itself that had the magical powers...
Man, I'm in a good mood.

I have the same view on much of the alternative methods, as you Mints, but I don`t ridicule it the way you do. That`s just mean and a signal that you lack social skills. AND one more thing, nothing is as strong as the placebo effect. If Deatheats sister believed strongly that it could heal her, this crystal, then one can never rule out the effect of this belief. I have first hand knowledge in a smaller scale, when I in a part of my life should get rid of some medicaton, sleep medication was one of them. It was a gradual downstepping, where you cut the table in two, then in three, forur and more parts, before you went over to a fluor tablet. It worked like hell, my brain really "believed" although there were no effect left, even in one sleeping tablet. Thing is that you can trick your brain and control your brain more than you are aware of. So why slam down on the method Deatheats refers to, if that has a placebo effect? Just like with religion and personal beliefs, one shall never slam down on what others believe.
