And even if they did meet the kickstarter goal they still needed to find the rest of the money somewhere else. So if this doesn't even succeed I'd say they're screwed.

They really haven't done a very good job of promoting this. Most projects are either self promoting 24/7 or have built up a community around it first, they're trying some things but a lot of people who loved The Boondocks still have no idea this exists.

He probably needs to say or do something controversial to get on the major news networks, just for the attention.

I just got off the phone with Uncle Ruckus. It was pure awesomeness. He said he is working on two new songs.

Was that your Kickstarter reward?

Yeah. I got the Glenn Beck Special. I originally signed up for Ted Nugent, but the chance to talk to Ruckus was too great of an opportunity to pass up.

I cant believe this is going to fail. I am sad.

Are there any projects as controversial as this that have succeeded on Kickstarter? I would imagine something like Kickstarter attracts many people who would be offended by this.

That's awesome! I'm very tempted. How long was the conversation?

I believe they are sold out of them now, but it was like a 3 minute conversation. He invested enough personally where it didn't feel fake and was highly enjoyable.

Oh shoot. They are sold out. Well done sir, that's awesome.

Those videos on the channel are all funny. It's a shame this most likely won't get funded. :(

Well this is completely fucked. Barely over halfway and only 3 days left.

This is the greatest thing ever. Certainly in the OTT at least.

Disappointment... Unless a whale jumps in and saves it, this kickstarter is pretty fucked.

The only good thing is that Aaron MacGruder said that the kickstarter got people interested in investing in the movie. Hopefully the Uncle Ruckus Movie gets made with money from those investors.
