Adam Green and Joe Lynch Are Staying Awake So Our Four Legged Friends Don't Get Put To Sleep


Long time readers of the site (thanks to both of you) are well aware that we, here at the DW are huge, we are talking Donald Trump level UUUUGGGE. fans of The Movie Crypt Podcast hosted by Adam Green (the good Frozen) and Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2). That being said, we often don't ape news that they break about their personal careers on the show, because that's for them to get the clicks on the their own personal sites/social media outlets with. But we are going to be breaking our self imposed rule here because what Lynch and Green are going to attempt to do is one of the most altruistic things we've heard of in a very long time and it's a cause extremely near and dear to our hearts.


From 7pm PST (that's 10pm EST for those of you who don't understand how time zones work) on August the 5th through 7pm PST (see above) August the 7th Green and Lynch as part of their highly successful movie Crypt Podcast, will be on the air live for 72 hours straight. While that may seem crazy it's all for a great cause, to raise awareness and funds for one of the great volunteer Yorkie rescue organizations, Save A Yorkie Rescue Inc., a 503c charity dedicated to saving the lives of abandoned Yorkies.

I mentioned above that this charity is near and dear to our hearts around the DreadWorld offices. Misses Joshua and I have rescued 2 Yorkies over the past decade, dogs that were living lives where they were not receiving adequate care, or in the second case driving 3 hours to save Gio who was only hours from being put down. We don't ask you to do a lot at the DW. Hell show up and read, that's about it. But we would appreciate it if you would lend and ear to The Movie Crypt between the 5th and the 7th and open up your hearts ad wallets to these wonderful, little dogs. Below is some stuff we've lazily cut and pasted from the Ariescope (Green's production company) website. It contains some quotes from Lynch and Green along with Geeknation's Clare Kramer, and some more information regarding how you can contribute to Save A Yorkie Rescue Inc. an provide a little joy for your self and these dogs that really need it.

Gio Before Adoption
"Founded in 2002 by Marilyn and Don Faughner, “Save A Yorkie Rescue, Inc” is a 501c(3) federally qualified non-profit, all volunteer rescue that has saved over 2,500 Yorkies to date.  ”Most people have no idea that there is a rescue just for Yorkshire Terriers,” says Marilyn Faughner. “I never knew there was a need for a rescue for Yorkshire Terriers until one day someone asked me what happens when Yorkie owners divorce, deploy, or die – what happens to their Yorkies?  Of course they need help.  No dog should have to go to the pound because they lose their home.  Now we are their temporary home until a forever home is found.”   Faughner and her team of volunteers rehabilitate and foster Yorkies that are in need of a second chance, going through great lengths to personally place each dog in the right home and with a new, loving family.  ”We’re overwhelmed by what Adam, Joe, and Arwen are doing to help raise money and awareness for our organization,” adds Faughner.  ”Together we have a chance to save many, many lives with this event.”


Gio Today
During the live marathon broadcast listeners will be provided with information on how to directly donate to “Save A Yorkie Rescue, Inc” quickly and easily on-line.  ”Adam and I have been working hard to plan out the entire weekend that we’ll be broadcasting,” says Lynch. “This isn’t just about the endurance test of “can we stay awake?” We’ve planned out a truly entertaining, fun, informative, and inspirational weekend.  So many amazing artists have volunteered their time and talents to join us and contribute to this event.  It’s going to be hard work, but man is it going to be fun.”  During episodes of “The Movie Crypt” in the weeks leading up to the event Green and Lynch will be revealing just a few of the guests that listeners can expect to hear on the marathon, but the full line-up of guests and segments will be mostly kept under wraps.  ”The surprise of not knowing who will turn up to join us or exactly when they will be stopping by is a major part of the fun in listening to a live event like this,” says Green.  Listeners can expect a combination of artists who have never done the program before and artists who have appeared on the show over the previous three years.

We had Davinci almost 10 years after rescue
“Our goal with GeekNation was always to create a positive and supportive community,” says GeekNation and FanFix Tickets CEO Clare Kramer.  ”The Movie Crypt” is not just one of our most successful programs, it is also one of our most important programs.  Adam and Joe have made a positive impact in so many lives by encouraging people from all over the world not to give up on themselves, no matter how difficult their individual journeys may be.  We all have enough people in our lives telling us “no,” but every week “The Movie Crypt” tells their listeners that “Yes they can.”  We’re thrilled to provide the technical support and necessary personnel to make Adam and Joe’s live, 3-day marathon for “Save A Yorkie Rescue, Inc” a major success.”

The special 3-day live broadcast will be available to listen to directly on GeekNation.com.  Listeners will have the opportunity to ask questions and post comments for Green, Lynch, and their guests through their Twitter accounts (@Adam_Fn_Green, @TheJoeLynch, and @MovieCrypt) as well as watch and take part in live Periscope broadcasts on Green’s Periscope channel (@Adam_Fn_Green) throughout the weekend.   “The Movie Crypt’s” dedicated link to donate directly to “Save A Yorkie Rescue, Inc” will be posted and given out consistently throughout the 3-day broadcast.
Artists/businesses looking to take part in this event can contact Info@ariescope.com."
