Dreamin’ Demon Is Creating Horrible News

January 8, 2014 at 3:50 pm by  

PatreonHere, Now – As we quickly approach our 10 year anniversary, we’d like to make some changes for 2014. In particular, we’d like to turn off the red light and quit whoring it up for potential advertisers.

After some discussions at the end of last year, I came to the conclusion that I’d like to get back to the raunchier D’D from the days of old. We’ve tried to play nice in an attempt to win over some better paying advertising and found ourselves all dressed up with no one to blow.

After checking out a handful of different fundraising type sites, we have settled on Patreon. I have created a Patreon page, like a lot of other independent content creators, in hopes that I can shrug off the shackles of advertisers’ content restrictions while still bringing in some kind of revenue.

Patreon allows people in my position to ask for monthly pledges from their fans. Currently that pledge is one, whole dollar. This can be paid via credit card or Paypal and can be easily cancelled at any time. The process is painless (I know because I am currently the only pledge).

I’m hoping that by doing this, our fans will come through on a monthly basis and I won’t have to do my yearly Beg-A-Thon, and can also stop sucking corporate dick.

If it works, I can remove all banner ads and focus on creating the crappy content you love, only more the way you like it. I’ll also be able to remain totally independent and not worry about advertisers pulling their support because I used the word “cunt-hole”.

If it REALLY works, then we will be able to finally get the funds needed to do things like merchandising, server upgrades and even a site overhaul by a *gasp* professional. I am working on adding rewards for larger pledges, rewards like limited branded merchandise, review requests, forum perks, etc. and will update you as they are implemented.

Look, I have no idea if this will work. But I’d like to give it a shot. D’D fans have always came through in a pinch and while we’re not in a pinch currently, this could be a way to ensure we never are again.

    I read you every day. It is better than a newspaper. You have my pledge.

  • Wildheart

    Agreed! Mine too.

  • imonfiredammit

    I just pledged!!!

  • Thanks!

  • Hopefully, if this works out, we can get back to having 10+ articles for you to read a day.

  • Thanks!

  • 1DireWolf

    I pledged a dollar, as soon as I find another job you will get more. I have been reading this page for about 3 or 4 years, I think. I used to be Pyncky but he was eaten. I can’t wait to see what happens when you stop playing nice. Guess I should try to find some really old pages and see what you mean. Thanks to you and all of the writers for all of the hard work.

  • Taxidermi

    I’m down- you will be getting my support soon 🙂

  • BrittBrittRoss

    Done. You have got my pledge, I’ve been a huge fan for 6 years! I am honored to be a DD patron. Keep the stories coming!

  • Thank you!

  • Thanks!

  • Thanks! I really hope this turns out well. I know Jaded and myself would love to go back to reporting on crime related stuff the way we used to. Not that I haven’t enjoyed the last few years, it’s just that we didn’t quite get the end result we wanted.

  • 1DireWolf

    Are the really old posts still available online? I’d like to check them out.

  • We lost three years worth of stuff back in 2007, but you can start at page 426 and see back when we did music and videogame news along with crime. There’s even some articles written by Hugh Howey, the author of the Wool series, years before he got too big to eat with us. 😛

    Personally, I don’t go back and read some of the old stuff because I cringe at a good chunk at it. 🙂

  • Just spoke with Jaded and I think we’ve come up with a $20 pledge reward. We’re thinking anyone who pledges $20 will get whatever rewards we come up with below that, plus they can choose between a year-long Bold membership in our forums OR have a fake news article written by myself or Jaded that will be posted on our Patreon page and will only be viewable by other people who’ve pledged a $1 or more. The twist is you get to choose five nouns that must be mentioned in the article.

  • Ok, new rewards have been created. You can check them out at the Patreon page. In the future, amounts over $25 will include merchandise of some type.

  • BubblesinGriffinGA

    You’ve got my pledge for sure!

  • Sarah L4d

    Happy to pledge! Love the site 🙂

  • LeaveMeBe

    I really miss being on the FP everyday (damn work blocking my access) and don’t have a lot of time in the evenings to slum with y’all, but I’ll still do my part.

    Hey… Morbid. I got ya a dollar!

  • FrownyFace

    Hell, I pay money to things I don’t even want every month, so what’s another $5? Thanks for existing.

  • FrownyFace

    Plus, I haven’t listened to your podcasts in a while because life got weird- but when I did, the novelty of listening to a southern man talk to himself for so long was priceless… (yeah, I’m a damn yankee). I realize everything I say may sound like a backhanded compliment, but that’s just the way I am, damn it…and maybe I’m drunk… No regrets!

  • Chinchillazilla

    Whoa, were we not supposed to be using the term “cunt-hole”? WHOOPS.

  • Jycorro

    Let me get my shit together and I am in.

  • David Richter

    I shall pledge my dollar…or more, if I can talk my wife into it…tomorrow when I get paid.

  • Jessie

    Me too, I’m in. Thanks for all the smut.

  • PureDrivenSnow

    Done. Let’s see if there are any ramifications to supporting this depraved site. I can’t lose my kid, my job is pretty cool so… let’s go for it!

  • Taxidermi

    OK, I finally got around to doing it-so now you have my monies ^^

  • Buffettgirl

    Monday – payday is Monday, not sure what it’ll be, but it’ll be something. I’d be so bored at work if it weren’t for you guys, thanks for helping me keep a semblance of sanity! ;-p

  • LuvsHorror

    I’m in, and I’ll try to up it five soon. Keep up the good work. I really do luv this site, it’s got the best commenters and writers.

  • Wildheart

    The first thing I did several years ago (2009 maybe?) when I started coming to this site regularly was to go back and read all your archives. It only increased my love for the sick and twisted. 🙂

  • I have created my first fake news post which can be read by any pledgers on the Patreon page. Hope you enjoy it.

  • Thanks!

  • That’s the spirit!

  • Thank you, LeaveMeBe

  • Mr.CustodialArts

    “…server upgrades…”

    I read that as “sewer upgrade.”

  • LuvsHorror

    The parents names, were they from Star Wars? Like “Mark” Hamil and “Carrie” Fisher, the Starwalkers? Or am I imaging it.

  • Same thing.

  • lol, no. They are relatives and I cannot believe I never made that association before.

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    As soon as I get the new ‘puter configured, and up & running, your Patreon page will be getting a pledge from me sometime within the next week. I won’t do payments from this one (It got blasted by a couple of nasty Trojans recently.)

  • Elizabeth McCarthy

    You have my money! This is way better than spending it on groceries or a car payment! I get twitchy if I don’t get my bad news on a daily basis. Glad to help.

  • Gina Muollo

    Shut up and take my money!!!

  • Jared Carlisle

    $10 per month. You guys fucking rule, and I’d love to see you have NO RESTRICTIONS!

  • jake8jazz

    I made the pledge, is there no more news to report? It’s been two weeks I’ve been looking at ugly mom arrested in pig pen.
