Home of Rhett & Link fans - the Mythical Beasts!
I am totally sticking my neck out here to get this discussion going! I HOPE to get some great ideas that are affordable and feasible and BIG enough to celebrate the big FOUR O! There have been some small discussions happening here and there with some pretty amazing ideas for a Kommunity gift, but we need to get them down and get them catalogued. The way I see it, we have a month to plan and then production had better start to get it there on time.
I don't think that too many tangible items are realistic. I am not an editor of any kind..(NOT ASSUMING I AM TAKING ON THIS PROJECT AGAIN BUT FOR WHOEVER DOES....) editing together clips of fans would be a tedious and time consuming job. Not that he's not worth it, but unless someone has 100% of their time to devote to this (which one of you may..*wink wink*) it may turn out to be a mess not worthy of such a milestone birthday. I think the books are always nice, but for this birthday we should think of something more special. ALSO, VERY IMPORTANT... I know jokes are made about Rhett buying useless things but the use of the mousepad from his last gift shows that things that are useful in every day life/business will be probably best.
Remember, the Beast taking on this job will use their time and money to get the gift completed and shipped so making it as easy as possible is best.
Turn your thinkers on and lets make this milestone...that I will share with him only 11 days later... a great one. When one of you decides to head up the project, a separate discussion can be started by you to avoid confusion.
So many great ideas! I think we need to make a vote on whether to do a book or website or both, and if both, we need leaders for each item. Just trying to help further organize. :)
Can I make a few suggestions? Based on this thread, would Kevin and Zainab like to work together on the website design/layout and sections? Victoria, maybe you can oversee these projects if you like or have time?
Perhaps we could incorporate the various types of wood into the website instead of worrying about shipping them to Rhett. They could be the background images of different pages with maybe a small section somewhere describing the wood type?
Anyone who has done a book before for the guys can maybe work on that together.
I definitely like the top 40 moments idea, kind of like the video montages the crew put together last year. Someone with video or photo editing skills can maybe create a video or slideshow from our choices that we suggest here of our favorite moments of Rhett's and embed it into the website.
I wouldn't mind helping in any way that I can or am needed. :)
I like your suggestions & I agree that we probably will have to make a vote (soon)
I'd love to do the video/slideshow thing of the top 40 moments if no one else wants to do it (but that is of course if we're actually going to do it)
Perhaps we need a poll. We have a lot of great ideas out there.
