Today was a day spent prepping for my surgery in the AM. Don’t worry, it is outpatient surgery and fairly routine. Sure, any surgery sucks, but I always have a good attitude when I have to go to a hospital. Usually the nurses are amazed and my excellent blood pressure considering I am in a hospital and compliment me on the quality of my veins (I guess that is a big deal with nurses!). So I spent the day taking these nasty meds, and stayed home. It did give me the chance to catch up on the Captain’s log though, which I truly enjoy.
The Captain’s Log serves two great purposes:
First it allows me to share with you, our loyal fans, what is happening on a daily basis on Axanar. And keeping you all informed is very important.
Second, it allows me to create an ongoing log so when Marc Cushman writes “The Making of Axanar” book, he has a journal to read to set some context for all the emails he will dig through.
Because of this, I try not to miss a day. So forgive me if I fall behind now and then, but I always try and catch up because it is important to chronicle what is happening
Now if you are a donor, you should have gone through Ares Digital already. It is our new database and digital perk delivery system. It is how you make sure we have your accurate information and how you get your digital perks. This system is ground breaking as no other crowd funded campaign has developed their own system like this. And we hope to make this a fund raiser for Axanar with other campaigns paying to use the system. Adam Nimoy’s “For the Love of Spock” is the first campaign to use our system, and we hope to get some great feedback and a good testimonial from them.
And PLEASE make sure you are voting every single day for Axanar in the Short Film Category of the Geekie Awards! You can vote every single day through the end of the month!
