E-Changes

Oh maannn have things been busy. And changing. Things have been busy changing but also busy in general, is what I mean to say.

None of it in a bad way though, which is...y'know, good. We've finally gotten around to doing something we've been talking about for more than a year now, and that's to form a legitimate company that can kind of be a catch all for everything we do. The bureaucratic paperwork was a nightmare and I still don't think I'm fully finished with it yet, but as of late last month THAC LLC is now a thing. We have a P.O. box!

AND TAXES HNNNGGGGGG

What does that mean for all of you? We're a bit more unburdened now by the financially complex way we used to operate, which should translate to more stuff sooner on both the Marble Hornets and THAC fronts. Holy crap that sounded so buzzword-y, ugh I'm sorry. We have official "office hours" now too, instead of "hey come over whenever I don't care who knows I might even be awake" hours. Granted, by "office" I really mean the three of us in my spare bedroom with folding tables for desks, but hey, baby steps.

Along with that, we've begun the process of centralizing everything we do. Before, it was all spread out and disorganized, with the MH and THAC youtube channels, the live streams, this blog, and the DVD store all essentially being separate entities. We're now working on making all of that available in one place with the thac.tv website. It's still being worked on, but once it's finished it should be the place where you can easily get to anything we make. We're also planning on adding some new things along with it as well, like a podcast and Twitch live streams (we're likely to be migrating to there from Ustream soon).

ON TOP OF THAT, we've launched an official store as well. It's bare bones at the moment, only having the leftover stickers that are available from GMX and Austin Comic Con, but there will be some new additions to it very soon. A few of which are probably pretty obvious. Right now I guess we're considering it a soft launch or a beta. It should be noted that we are in complete control of it too, stocking and shipping are all us, so any questions or problems you might have in regards to orders go directly to us (the dedicated support email is store@thac.tv).

We want to remain as transparent as humanly possible when it comes to dealing with all of this new stuff, so if you want to know anything at all, just ask! We're super amped about this new way of doing things, and have been working all week on getting it all set up and organized. We'll be back to shooting the next MH entry early next week, as well. So as always, stay tuned and thanks for being tuned in the first place!

  3. I wish you, Joseph and Tim the best of luck! It must be so exciting to be making things so "official" now (at least, in legal terms). I know I'm excited to see your future projects; whatever you do is sure to be good. And hopefully you can make some money off of it too, because you deserve it! :) ~Megan (arbelathewhitehat)

  5. This is literally the best news I have heard all week. This is amazing. This is *fantastic*. Oh my god, I love all three of you.
    Question: In casual conversation, would you guys say "So how are things going in Troy Has A Camera?" Or "So how are things going in thhhhack?" How should I be reading it, as an abbreviation or as a funny-sounding word?

    1. We usually just say "thack", but it can stand for both Troy Has A Camera and They Have A Camera if you wanna be all inclusive :P

  8. So happy for you guys! My birthday is coming up, which means I'll definetely check out the store.
    Also, on a completely unrelated note, I just finished writing the biggest project of all my years in school last month - 19 pages in-depth about the neuropsychological tools used in the slenderman-franchise, as well as genre-characteristics and such. Long story short, I spent many days watching and analyzing the entirety of Marble Hornets. To be able to write about it for this project (which is determining whether or not I'll graduate, fingers crossed) was a dream come true, and I couldn't have done it if it weren't for you guys, so thanks a ton!

  10. I know this comment has nothing to do with the post...I apologize, but I couldn't think of another place to post it. I'm sure this has been suggested before...but the release date of the movie? I'm gonna take a stab at it and say it release June 20th of this year. It only makes sense. First video uploaded June 20th, 2009. 5 year anniversary present. That's what I would do if I had a say.
