The Movie Crypt’s Save the Yorkies Marathon Is Live! Donate Now!
Adam Green and Joe Lynch’s 3-day long (48 hours straight) The Movie Crypt podcast to benefit Save A Yorkie Rescue is now LIVE! Read on to find out what’s in store and how you can help!
From the ArieScope Website:
On Friday night (8/5) at 7pm PT Adam Green, Joe Lynch, and Arwen began their first ever LIVE broadcast of The Movie Crypt podcast… and will stay on the air until 7pm PT on Sunday night (8/7). This special event is all being done in an effort to benefit SAVE A YORKIE RESCUE, and listeners will be encouraged to make donations to the rescue organization as their way of saying “thank you” for the 48 straight hours of exclusive entertainment that the boys (and their special guests) will be providing for free.
SAVE A YORKIE RESCUE is a non-profit, volunteer operated dog rescue that is near and dear to the boys’ hearts given that both are owners of rescued dogs themselves and that Adam’s own Yorkie (Arwen) is the podcast’s beloved official mascot. All of the money raised will go directly to SAVE A YORKIE RESCUE and help the wonderful people that work there provide much needed medical assistance, foster homes, and (ultimately) permanent placement with loving families. These dogs have already lost everything once and (in some cases) have even been abused or horrifically neglected by their previous owners, but together we can make sure that as many of these wonderful, wonderful dogs as possible live happily ever after.
The event will be broadcast live on Geek Nation. Just go to the GeekNation homepage, and when the event begins on Friday at 7pm PT, there will be an area to click on that will start streaming the broadcast for you – for free. Throughout the weekend Adam and Joe will also be interacting with fans on Twitter, on Adam’s Periscope account, and on other social networking platforms – so that you can join in on the fun, ask questions for the guests, and be a part of the show. Most importantly – you can donate to Save A Yorkie Rescue! Be sure and leave a message for Arwen and the boys along with your donation, and they will read it on the air.
Every donation helps so please, please, please give what you can, spread the word to your own friends and followers, and help The Movie Crypt podcast save as many lives as possible with this landmark event. It has been a year in the planning, three very difficult months of coordination, and the boys certainly aren’t staying awake all weekend long for their (already questionable) health and sanity! So please give what you can this weekend and help these unfortunate dogs have a chance at a wonderful, healthy, happy life.
Just what can you expect to hear during the weekend? SO, SO, SO MUCH! Artists and celebrities from all sides of Hollywood have stepped up to join Adam, Joe, and Arwen in raising money for the rescue. You’ll hear from people like Seth Green (FAMILY GUY, AUSTIN POWERS), Michael Gladis (MAD MEN), comedian Jonah Ray (HIDDEN AMERICA, COMEDY BANG! BANG!), comedian Dave Anthony (MARON, VEEP, ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT), producer Sarah Elbert (HATCHET, HOLLISTON), make-up FX artist Robert Pendergraft (HATCHET 1-3, DIGGING UP THE MARROW), and clairvoyant Marilyn Kapp, who will communicate with the other side live on the air… and even speak directly with Arwen! You’ll hear improv comedy from Derek Mears & The Resistance (FRIDAY THE 13th 2009, SLEEPY HOLLOW) as well as from the hilarious comedy duo of Kelly Vrooman & Lauren Pritchard (THE CHICA SHOW, MAD TV). You’ll hear musical performances from Rudy Sarzo (OZZY OSBOURNE, QUIET RIOT), Ace Von Johnson (FASTER PUSSYCAT), Jason Charles Miller (GODHEAD), and Jesse Snider (BAPTIZED BY FIRE). You’ll hear exclusive film commentaries for FRIGHT NIGHT (with writer/director Tom Holland), CANDYMAN (with director and co-writer Bernard Rose), THE DEVIL’S REJECTS (with stars Sid Haig and Bill Moseley), and John Carpenter’s THE THING (with guest co-host Drew McWeeny from Hitfix). You’ll hear short stories generously donated to the cause by best selling authors Clive Barker and Joe Hill. You’ll hear live script readings of Adam Green’s never-before-seen/heard unproduced draft of CABIN FEVER 2, a brand new episode from the upcoming season of HOLLISTON (performed by the cast), and of course… the main event…
A live reading of Chris Columbus’ never-before-seen/heard early draft of THE GOONIES performed by an all-star cast including Felicia Day, Jonah Ray, Joel David Moore, Michael Gladis, Deon Richmond, Felissa Rose, Parry Shen, and many more! (If you’re a GOONIES fan, you need to hear this! It’s very different from the final shooting script but every bit as awesome!)
Tune out or fall asleep and you’ll miss something awesome as very little of this incredible event will ever be re-broadcast again! So start chugging coffee now because this weekend “we’re staying awake so that they don’t get put to sleep.” Listen. Laugh. Learn. Be inspired. And help us save them by donating.
Every dog deserves a life like Arwen’s. Together we can make a life changing difference for so, so many dogs that are currently sick, scared, hurting, and just praying for a chance to be loved… and then to give that love back in return ten times over.
The special 3-day live broadcast will be available to listen to directly on GeekNation.com. Listeners will have the opportunity to ask questions and post comments for Green, Lynch, and their guests through their Twitter accounts (@Adam_Fn_Green, @TheJoeLynch, and @MovieCrypt) as well as watch and take part in live Periscope broadcasts on Green’s Periscope channel (@Adam_Fn_Green) throughout the weekend. “The Movie Crypt’s” dedicated link to donate directly to “Save a Yorkie Rescue, Inc.” will be posted and given out consistently throughout the 3-day broadcast.
