Blasto is doing great racking up the hits on our own website and on iTunes, but for some reason it's just not getting noticed on YouTube, which of course makes us sad. An episode will get tens of thousands of hits over on captainblasto.com and only THIRTY on YouTube. What's the deal?

That's why I'm asking you, the faithful Blasto fans, for help in starting the YouTube wildfire. Please take a moment and subscribe to the Blasto YouTube channel by clicking here.

And please, share an episode with your friends on YouTube or Facebook. Thanks!

Captain Blasto at Comic Con

Myself (Chris Preksta) and Curt Wootton of Captain Blasto will be attending the San Diego Comic Con this week. While we won't be parked at a booth, I am ridiculously tall, so there's a good chance you may just spot me. (If you have a booth, let us know and we'll stop by.)

We'll be at the screening of our short concept film, The Mercury Men, which is playing the comic con film festival on Sunday, July 27th, at 2:00 PM in Room 26AB. Please stop by, we'd love to meet you.

Help Spread the Word

If you're reading this blog then you must be a fan of the Captain Blasto series. (Or you did a search on the Kurt Russel movie Captain Ron and you somehow ended up here.) If that's the case then we're asking you to help us spread the word (about Blasto, not Ron). And here's a few easy ways to do that.

Subscribe to Captain Blasto on iTunes
Even if you don't have an iPod. By subscribing you're bringing the series to the attention of the good folks at Apple which increases our chances of being featured on the iTunes Podcast page. You can also write/post a review on the Captain Blasto iTunes page which also helps. You can find Blasto on iTunes here.

Share Captain Blasto through YouTube
We've all grabbed the embed code from a YouTube video and posted it to a friends myspace, Facebook, or blog page. Share an episode of Blasto. You can find Blasto on YouTube here.

Join the Blasto Facebook Group
When you join a Facebook group all of your friends see it in their news feed. You can find the Blasto Facebook group here.

Pass out Blasto Postcards
Here at Blasto HQ we've got these fine color postcards promoting the show. Send us an e-mail at info@captainblasto.com and we'll get a small stack out to you. And to thank you for helping us out, we'll send you a free Captain Blasto poster.

And lastly, a genuine thank you to each of you watching the series!

The Mercury Men Screenings

Some great news came in recently for The Mercury Men, a short film we produced as a concept for our upcoming web series.

The Mercury Men will be screening at the San Diego Comic-Con International Independent Film Festival on July 27th. (2:05 PM, Room 26AB) The film was selected by Tom DeSanto (producer of X-Men and Transformers) and Borys Kit (senior film writer at The Hollywood Reporter). The Comic-Con film festival can be found at http://www.comic-con.org/cci/cci_iff.shtml

TMM will also be screening at the Action On Film International Film Festival on July 30th at the Laemelle Theater in Pasadena, CA. On top of that, TMM was nominated for Best Visual Effects, Best Sci-Fi Film, and Best Short Film! The AOF Film Festival can be found at http://www.aoffest.com

If you happen to be attending Comic-Con or live in the San Diego or Pasadena area, I encourage you to come check out the screening and introduce yourself.
