First off, I recently announced the 2nd and 3rd parts of my Holiday contests. Toni won the 1st challenge and Michael has won challenge 2! I will soon post the top 3 entries from that part of the contest. Remember, challenge 3 is still going on and the deadline is December 24th. Go HERE to see how to enter and what you'll win!
Secondly, I feel bad that I didn't highlight last week's Fan of the Week, so I wanted to direct people to last week's FOTW Chris and this week's FOTW Pam. You can submit to become a FOTW HERE.
First off, my Holiday contest is going on right now. Contest one has ended (congrats, Toni!), but parts two and three are going on at the same time! Click HERE for the details and prizes :)
Secondly, for those who didn't hear, "Destination Truth" is FINALLY getting a live investigation special after fans have requested one for years :) Click HERE for details
Finally, updated fan/rare/candid photos HERE
Aside from jumping from a little more than 100 views to over 800 within a 24 hour period, here's what some members of the "Destination Truth" crew had to say about the latest fan video (video after the comments):
JOSHUA GATES (via Twitter): Huge thanks to @DTonSYFYfans [my Twitter account] & all the DT fans for this amazing video! ...
First off, I made another welcome home video for the crew HERE Check it out to see if you're in it! I gave myself a little Hitchcock-ian cameo in it.
Also, I have recently created a message of anti-hate for those who give fanatics a hard time, or in the instances of fan-on-fan hate or bickering. Please go to read it HERE and help spread the message <3
PS - I forgot to add a few people to the video, but this girl in particular I don't think I ever put in one of my videos and I feel bad forgetting here. Check out her photo HERE
I would like to preface this by saying that I'm going to continue doing the fan work and will continue to make my "best moments" videos as new episodes air, as I always have (BTW, Season 4.5 premieres on Syfy March 2011). Anyway, I regretfully announce that due to personal circumstances in my life as well as a lot of responsibilities to juggle, I will not be making the "DT" themed best moments videos I've discussed (RE: worst foods, medical incidents, crappiest vehicles, etc.) Just the process of watching each episode and compiling specific moments in time fragments on paper takes a long time, let alone screen recording, editing, uploading, etc. You can look forward to other great stuff coming up, as always, but I'd like to remind everyone that there are already a great deal of funniest moments videos on YouTube from me (MandoggHouseProds) and KayEllBee32. Thanks for understanding <3 AMANDA
I wanted to kick things off by reminding people that I am still taking photo submissions for the "DT" welcome home & good luck video up until TUESDAY, DECEMBER 7th. Take a photo of yourself with the letters "DT" on your cheek or with a sign that says "Good Luck DT" to DTfanambassador@yahoo.com to be part of this gift to the crew :) The backstory on why this video is being made is HERE
If you are an international fan who cannot download any MP3's from my BlogTalkRadio channel (where I have my "DT Fan Radio" and other specials), please feel free to email me at the address listed above and I will send you the MP3(s) of whichever interviews you want to listen to (please only request 3 at a time). I also will be happy to make/forward a transcript of any of my radio programs for the deaf or hard of hearing if you email me at the same address above.
Finally, for anyone who ever was a DJ AM fan, or knew who he was, read my blog entry about finally getting my hands on a piece of his legacy.
To start things off, since it's the season to shill out goods and whatnot, there is free shipping on "DT" items this weekend ONLY at the Syfy store! Yes, a lot of these items are on backorder & one of their T-Shirt designs is sold out completely, but it's totally worth it to get this already price-cut merchandise before it's gone forever. FREE SHIPPING ENDS DECEMBER 15, 2010 at MIDNIGHT EST. No, I don't get commission (I wish LOL).
Basically, I updated NEWS and the new Fan of the Week, or Fans of the Week, are Marguerite & her family! Their post is HERE and you can apply to be FOTW HERE. There is also an awards ceremony this coming April for reality TV and "DT" is one of the candidates. CLICK HERE to go vote!
I am collecting fan photos for yet another tribute video for the "DT" crew, who come home from filming soon, but then have to head out right after the holidays to film in Antarctica. To be included in the video, submit a photo of yourself either with the letters "DT" on your cheek or holding a sign that says "Good Luck DT" on it, to DTfanambassador@yahoo.com. Photos only please - no videos, links (other than a public photo uploader link), or invites to friend me on Facebook, thanks.
Also, for those who thought they might have seen a blog post here and a vlog on my YouTube about how I helped iTunes take down a prematurely uploaded episode of "DT", you are not imagining things. Please CLICK HERE to read what happened to the posts, which I decided to remove.
