Well, this is the first KickStarter I've ever supported, so that should say something about what I think about the fine folks at LRR. I just wanted to make a point about something to everyone here who may not be old enough for this to be a thing. It doesn't always matter how much you love doing something, or how long you have done it, sometimes you have to move on to new things in your life instead of doing the same things forever.
I used to run my own small consulting company, I enjoyed it very much, but as life changed, so did my career trajectory and as a result of that I had to give up my company and do something else. For LRR, they are getting older and some of them might be wondering how they can support a family, expand their business, or maybe just not have to worry as much about making ends meet. They have to do what's best for them, they have now made a name for themselves as a production house, a creative team, doing marketing things for several large companies, etc.
They still want to do what they do but they aren't teenagers with a weekend hobby, or art students with a lot of free time, they are almost as old as I am (ok, close to?, in the same generation as?). The only way that we get to continue enjoying all the aspects of LRR is if they can afford to keep doing it. If they have to collapse and all start going to work for other companies because they can't afford to keep doing business as usual, I would rather they do this than something else. It's a change, but not even that huge of a change in my opinion given the wide range of LRR services I enjoy, and if this change, and my support to their KS means I get to make more sarcastic comments on their Twitch channel or whatever, then that's what I'll do.
This post is probably waxing far too long and thoughtful here, but I want everyone to realize that this isn't them letting down their fans, this is them trying to make sure that their fans still get LRR funny on a regular basis because if they keep doing things the way they are, they will be stressed, broke and desperate, probably not things that are ideal for being humorous, if the KS succeeds, which I hope it does and it's looking pretty solid so far, they can actually breathe, enjoy life a bit and have more fun themselves. After all the enjoyment we've gotten out of them, I think it's fair that we help them live their dream.
May the road rise up to meet you LRR on this and all your future endeavors and I will support you any way that I can.
