4242! THANK YOU!

4242 Likes on Facebook THANK YOU!

Full on double 42 all the way across the Universe!

Many of you know that not only everything we do at Painting Buddha revolves around the number 42, but for me personally, 42 is a very special number. If you don't know why 42 is special in any way, you should read the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams!

But what does it all mean?

Well, it really doesn't mean anything, BUT since we eat, sleep and breath 42, reaching 4242 like-minded friends on Facebook is actually a mark that we were looking forward to for weeks now. And now it's here! THANK YOU so much! 

We <3 You! :D

So, is there a party going on now or something?

Matt & Ben during the Interview on Season 1.3.
Not really. We are too busy!

We are finalizing our Season 1.2 and 1.3 DVD sets right now - we are in the middle of Quality Control - and we simply have got no time for celebrations :D 

The DVDs are scheduled to be sent to the manufacturer next week, and as soon as we hear back from them, we can finally tell you the release date!

As we wrote on this blog earlier, we decided to include THREE and not two DVDs on Season 1.3 - Base Alchemy 1: Earth with Ben Komets & Matt Cexwish. We had too much cool material and did not dare to cut it from your final DVD set! The price stayed the same, we just decided to add 50% more content! :D

Right now, you can still save money on the pre-order "Early BEARD Special". As soon as the DVDs are released you would have to pay the full retail. Just sayin' ;)

Season 1.1 sold out?

We received quite a few emails asking about where the Season 1.1 sets in our shop went. In short, the Supporter Box and Budget Box are 'sold out' right now

Having said that, we have reserved a certain amount for the pre-orders of either of the Bundles (Mega-Bundle and Bundle of Love). Some more have been reserved for the many retailers that contacted us, interested in carrying our DVDs. 

If you are a brick-and-mortar retailer, you can contact us here.

After the release of 1.2 and 1.3 we will check whether we can have the remaining few DVD sets for Season 1.1 released in its Budget/Supporter form again - and of course will do so, if possible!

But wait, there's more!

Season 1.2 and 1.3 are a technological step up from 1.1!
Thanks to all of YOU who sent us their Feedback on 1.1!
Unlike crowdfunding campaigns, we have 'secret' stretchgoals. And by hitting 4242 likes on Facebook, you have already unlocked another major one! 
We wanted to thank you for your incredible support over the last year and for your continued friendship! So on Tuesday next week, we'll tell you what you will get on top of your pre-orders!

"So you are saying that we don't only get the 1.2 and 1.3 DVD sets, but more?"

That is EXACTLY what we are saying. ;) 

Great things are afoot. 
  • Tonight at 7pm CET: BEEBLE・BABBLE #3 with Creature Caster Jeremy Glen.
    You do NOT want to miss this as Jeremy and I have a VERY special announcement to make for his April 19th Kickstarter campaign.
  • Wednesday: We will reveal which languages we have subtitled for our 1.2 and 1.3 DVD sets, the names of Captains & Bablefishes and their glorious spaceships!
  • Thursday: STRETCHGOAL time! What you will get with your pre-orders!!!
  • Friday: Announcement of Release Date for Season 1.2 and 1.3. 
  • Next week: Trailer & Teaser videos for Season 1.2 and 1.3. 
We are getting very excited!!! Are you?



  1. That are really great news :-)

    It's me a pleasure to see how painting buddha grows and what you guys build up over the last years.
    It's also nice we can help you with buying your really nice DVDs and stuff. A win-win situation *thumbs up*

    Best regards,
    Michael aka Dellolyn

    PS: Hope we meet again in Munich on the Duke of Bavaria.

    1. Hey Michael! Thanks for the nice comments :D
      And yes, creating win-win-win-win-win situations is actually part of our company's philosophy :D

      As far as the Duke is concerned, I probably won't be there as I will attend the AMT this year for the first time. But I think Mati will be at the Duke ;)
