Okay. Officially freaked out.

The Spoony One | Nov 25 2009 | more notation(s) | 

I get a lot of donations all the time, and every time, I’m blown away by even the smallest amount of generosity. But normally, these donations take the form of payments less than $25, or the silly items I post on my Amazon Wish List. In fact, I can say with endless gratitude that for a long time, your donations helped keep the website running. Now, of course, ads from Blip are helping a great deal.

But uh, this is kind of scary.

Today I just got a package in the mail containing a copy of the Adobe Master Collection, which contains a load of Adobe software like Premiere Pro, After Effects, Dreamweaver, Illustrator…and all this prices out at well over two thousand freaking dollars. It was on my wish list as just that– a longshot wish that I never really expected anyone to fill. Sort of like people who will throw a big screen TV onto their wish list, never seriously believing someone will swoop down and buy in a fit of kindness or madness. And the hell of it is, I have no idea who did it. The packing slip lists only AMAZON as the buyer, and the shipping label is blank except for my name. I can’t even thank this secret Santa.

But seriously…I don’t think I can accept this. Books, CDs, the odd video game or camera bag…that’s one thing, but when you’re dealing with a gift this expensive, it’s quite another. I feel guilty when people are good enough to throw $5 or $10 my way; how do you think something like this makes me feel? Either you’re spectacularly generous on a level I’ve never personally witnessed, or you’re with the mafia. ;)

I mean, if you’re serious and absolutely certain you’re willing to let me have this, I’ll use it and be eternally grateful. But I’m just some guy on the Internet, so I hope you thought it through!

But whoever you are, kind sir or madam, I hope you’ll e-mail me and let me know if this is what you really want to do. I’m not going to unwrap this thing until then.

  • JT1

    Spoony, it would be rude not to accept the gift. Take it and thank the donor.

  • Lucia

    I guess someone wanted to give you an awesome holiday present.

    See Spoony, this is what you get when you’re a cool guy who makes funny videos and doesn’t afraid of anything. Shame on you for being awesome.

  • Xplay3r

    Wow that’s pretty crazy, but you deserve it anyways lol
    You shouldn’t feel guitly though, if someone likes your videos enough to send it to you, then you deserved it, hell I’d buy you something like that if I had the money!

  • Marina

    Wow, that’s an amazing present, but you really do deserve it. Bringing us so much great entertainment for free just has to be appreciated in one way or another…

  • anonymous

    Hey Spoony, you gotta be careful with some of the emails you might get of people accepting credit for buying it, especially in the Holidays. Some of them might be scam artists wishing for you to send the item to them, acting as if they want it back.

    But in any other case, it might be a very generous Christmas present.

  • Irvin McWhorter

    Yeah, I know how you feel. Kinda like a stalker giving you gifts. Either that the power of fans is starting to overwhelm you. ;)

    I would give it back with a note giving a nice gesture of thanks but no thanks if you feel uncomfortable. Your mailing address IS a P.O. box is it not?

  • BlueSamurai

    Wow. I must say though, I would buy things on your wishlist for you if I had cash to do so.

    Whoever did this, wow.

    Did you come to think that maybe it’s Amazon itself who sent it to you? Maybe there’s someone at Amazon who likes you? 2000 dollars is pocket change to someone big in a company like that that is enjoying your stuff.

  • Caleb

    Either some rich person or someone who stole a credit card number.

    Either way keep it. You can’t afford to turn down things like this when they happen to you. Trust me from experience.

    Well I’m not going to send it off to just anyone who claims it. If I were to return it, it would be to the company who shipped it.

    I’m not trying to be insulting to the person who bought it, just trying to make sure that they’re absolutely positive about this.

  • StaticSignal

    Your fans think you deserve something like this, clearly. And if one of your fans happens to have more disposable income than most of us, who are you to refuse their generosity, hmm?
    If you really want to repay this secret santa, the best way possible is to use this gift to make even more awesome videos.
    I can’t wait to see what you’ll do with it!

    It wasn’t me, but I sure wish it was. =)

    Spoony, I know how you feel man, accepting such a generous gift is bound to make you feel a little guilty. However, whoever sent it to you is obviously a big fan of your work and it would be rude to send it back. Just be Thankful, and put the software to good use. That’s the best way you could say “Thank You” to one of your biggest fans.

    Well this could be like that episode of House where Dr. House gets a convertible from a guy that’s in the mafia when he said he’d help his brother. If you reject it, he’ll probably hunt you down, sadly you got no other choice but to take the gift, man. =P

  • Sebbzy

    while i think its fantastic you got the gift i have to say you shouldn’t return it and i agree with no.4 on the basis that as it doesn’t say who it’s from you may end up returning it to the wrong person so i’d say hang on to it

  • Omi-san

    Whoever gave you this gift can probably afford it. You should keep it.

    Maybe $2000 to this donator is like $25 to us commoners.

  • killua

    Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.

    Either someone wanted to genuinely thank you, without receiving plaudits from yourself (it’s taken for granted that they wouldn’t want a mention in a video), or they nicked a few thousand dollars (which is less unlikely).

    Regardless of the means, they’re making an attempt to stay anonymous and refusing to use their gift – an expensive gift at that – because they didn’t reveal their name isn’t really worth it. I’m not talking about worth as in value here, but more in the sense that you don’t achieve anything by forcing this person to go against their wishes.

    Let them keep their anonymity.

    Smile, enjoy your gift and maybe spend some time reflecting on what it feels like to get a smile from a stranger – something like what you do for us with your videos.

  • Namewithheld

    I bet itsa group of fans who all want to show how much they love the show, Spoonyman.

    Accept the gift, and thank them by using it to make even more incredible movies and shows and stuff.

  • http://terror-token.blogspot.com/ Mr.Misfit

    Could you postal service have mixed this up? Perhaps someone with your exact name, hell, even one or two letters wrong, did buy this and they just send it to you?

    Tried contacting AMAZON about it?

  • Dudey

    My guess is that it wasn’t one person, but a big bunch of fans collaborating to send you an awesome present. Kinda early Christmas

  • Juan

    You should keep it Spoony. Trust me, to some people $2000 isn’t a lot of money at all. And I know if I had that kind of cash, I would have no problem donating you something that you could use on the website.

  • Can’t think of a name.

    I can’t imagine that, Misfit. Besides, it’s been on his wishlist for quite a while and that would be a strange coincidence.

    Anywho, whoever sent it to you sent it to you to be used, and it would be insulting (at best) to return it without a request to do so being made.

    Besides, you’ll be in the rare minority: non-commercial users who have the Adobe Master Collection without having to resort to piracy, meh.

    I’m not trying to be insulting to the person who bought it, just trying to make sure that they’re absolutely positive about this.

    I confess I don’t really understand this mentality. If they weren’t sure about it, why would they have sent it to you in the first place? I don’t know about the rest of you but I would never spend $2000 on ANYTHING if I wasn’t absolutely sure it was something I wanted to do.

    Someone wants to give you a particularly generous gift. I don’t get how guilt factors into this.

    There’s always the possibility it could be someone you know personally. Family member, someone at work, maybe even one of your internet review colleagues. Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth. If someone seriously wants to give you something nice you’re only insulting them by not using it.

    Everyone is saying “Go for it and use it” but I can understand the hesitation. First off it is the idea of getting something really expensive from someone you don’t know which can make one feel uneasy, and secondly, is whoever sent you that expecting anything in return? Accepting something so expensive makes one feel obliged.

  • Squall Lee

    All the work you’ve done and all the hilarity used delivered over the years is well worth more then $2000, Spoony.

    Perhaps someone with lotsa pocket change finally recognized that. Or perhaps, it might be either Amazon or Adobe seeing your popularity and sooner or later, opting to have you as a vehicle for advertising somewhere down the line. Don’t know, but I’d keep my eye out.

    Otherwise, I wouldn’t worry about it, it’ll only become really freaky and/or stalkerish when you start getting fangirl’s panties in the mail, or fangirl’s head shots, or more realistically; breast shots.

    Either way, you deserve it Mr. Spoony Man. And I imagine whoever sent it will only ask for gratitude in a review of something. I would if I did.

  • WizWar100

    Hmmm…To open or not to open…Well you already have it in your hands…

    It’s probably a group of people(Your fans most likely), but not excluding the possibility that it could be one person.

    I know how you feel if you get something that expensive, you feel like you owe they something even bigger to compensate. Either make good use of it or never open it till you find out who bought it for you.

    Funny thing Noah, I got my CS4 Master collection from work, and have been using it most of the applications (Photoshop, After Effects, Premier, Flash), I know you know how to use the adobe programs, but if you need help on working some of them, I hope you’ll ask me for help, I use those in class to do work and always experimenting with effects with my fellow classmates.

  • Superkid11

    Spoony, I know how you feel, but nobody spends that much money without seriously thinking about it first.

    As I read in a previous post: Yeah, if they didn’t write their name down they probably wanted to stay anonymous. No idea WHY, but they did.

    Like I said before, if it’ll ease your conscience you can make a tribute video to them with the help of the new software. Even if you don’t know who sent it, they know who they are.

    Don’t know about this one…but you definitely should not feel guilty about $5 or $10 donations. If people decide that this is the sort of entertainment they want to watch, they’ll do what they can to keep it going. ‘Dollar votes’, so to speak.
    I mean, heck, it’s not much different from donating to public television and radio. If we like the content, we’re more than happy to support it.

    Another reason you shouldn’t be asking for emails is people might take credit for sending you the stuff when they really didn’t.

    Best just open it and install it. ;)

    While I completely agree that I think spoony deserves this, I also understand why he’s hesitant, and completely agree with him. What if some 14 year old ‘borrowed’ his daddy’s credit card?

    The only problem with being cautious is that at what point do you give in and send it back/accept it?

    Obviously the package was meant for me, as my real name is Noan Twiler, 101 Spoon Knee Blvd. Apartment 42, right across from Ripper’s Hardware Supply.

  • Freeloadin’ Bum

    I wouldn’t accept it if I were you. No matter if it was one person or a bunch of people, it’s just weird. I maybe a freeloadin’ bum, but there are just certain gifts you just cannot accept.

    Not saying that whoever did this was insane or something (because I certainly am), but for some reason I could see this person contacting Spoony later and requiring some kind of favor in the near future or something. Maybe I’m just paranoid, and Spoony (being the cool guy that he is, and not some weird internet God as some may say) might indeed deserve such a gift. But it just seems like a really weird thing to do out there.

    OMG sorry this is going to be a long post, and once again I apologize, but I just thought that maybe it was a company exec that made one of those gawd awful FMV games that Spoony threatened to kill?? Maybe its a gesture for forgiveness? Just a thought. Once again I’m crazy and I might be wrong, but what if?

    14 year olds can be stupid but not that stupid. I think they’d think twice about taking $2,000 out of their dad’s credit card. Even the nicest people would go completely apeshit.

    It’s best just to accept the gift. I’ll say it again: Making a tribute video could help ease your conscience. Nobody spends $2,000 without thinking about it first. Hell, it could’ve been a group effort. Either way, you could wind up sending it back due to an email claiming to be the one who sent it but wasn’t. That’d be horrible.

    If there was an ulterior motive they would have at least written their name and contact info. And it’s still TWO THOUSAND FREAKING DOLLARS.
    So yeah, your paranoid theory doesn’t make sense at all.

    I can understand why Spoony would hesitate. It’s like getting a gift from complete strangers, and if that gift were the holy flipping grail. And with something worth that much, of course he’d be hesitant and would want to make sure that no mistakes were made in the shipping or if that he were the correct recipient. I know that I would.

    Yeah, I recommend waiting it out and making sure. If it turns out that it was a gift intended for you, then you can breathe, open it and go all out for your future videos.

    Um, how exactly can he make sure? The gift was anonymous. Any old asshole can claim they sent it, like monsieurkaizer(even though I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt and assuming he’s joking) just did.

    Plus there’s no harm in installing it even if it did turn out he wasn’t the intended recipient or something. The programs can be unregistered and uninstalled with no harm done.

    I was just saying that I understand where Spoony’s coming from. I like to play the safe card when it comes to something like this, (though it’s never happened with me).

    Plus some people are humble and feel they don’t deserve that type of gift without having earned it. I say that Spoony has earned this gift after all his hard work in entertaining us even with all his personal stuff going on.

    However, the decision is up to Spoony. If he wants to return it, that’s his right. If he wants to keep it and use it, that’s also his right.

    Superkid11, No it makes too much sense is how much sense it does make indeed!

    Now that Spoony is asking for the true person to come out of the woodworks, he knows he has Spoony trapped.
    And the Jigsaw theory can also fit into this.

    See once Spoony goes to return the gift, the anonymous sender will tell him to send it UPS or something, and once he goes down to the UPS Store to prepare the software for transit he’ll be rendered unconscious by those he has threatened to kill but wish to get the jump on him. Next thing you know he is trapped within some deep underground bunker and will be never seen again.

    Maybe Noah actually made a time machine in the future and sent his copy back to him in time and made himself even more popular.

    Also how is Noah going to really know who sent it to him? Anyone here can just say ‘Hey Noah I sent that package’

    It’s really hard, but I’d say use it, it’s been paid with all that money.

    Now let’s think from the senders position…
    I think he wants a mention or thank you video.

    The sender could have spent it on other stuff, not saying their choice in this was bad…
    I don’t think Noah would have accepted it if he heard that someone was going to give them $2000 worth of editing software. And therefore sent without a name…I guess the person did think this through, go use it Noah, it’s better to regret doing, then regret not doing.

    I’d accept it, if I were you.

    Personally speaking, I don’t accept software because I write previews and informal news pieces on all things Mac and iPhone. It _directly_ interferes with my job. I especially don’t accept those kinds of gifts – or any other kind, for that matter – from publishers, developers or “anonymous donors” – usually the publisher’s PR folks.

    However, you don’t write reviews on Adobe products (that I know of), so there’s no real conflict of interest that I can see.

    Dude! Go knock yourself out and enjoy it. I doubt the donor has any truly nefarious reason to give you a copy besides spreading good word of mouth.

    This is pure speculation, but I wouldn’t be surprised if that copy of CS4 came from Adobe. They’ve been heavily marketing CS4 recently because sales have been trending far south of Adobe’s expectations.

    That’s just my own theory, though… take it with a truckload of salt. ;)

    maybe as Crea (comment n 52) said, its just his way to make the vids come faster.(that was hilarious Crea kudos!)
    face it just a Christmas gift, from someone that most certainly has more than he can spend, so don’t feel bad, like the 5 or so dollars you get to make the site run, this is exactly the same, but its more technical stuff.
    Ho and most people are right, you will probably get a bunch of people taking the credit for sending this, and the one who really send it will not say a word, i can be wrong, but i doubt it.

    bottom line: take it, embrace it, and thank the guy or gall and (i think i speak for all of your fans) we, spoony fans, thank you too.

    Well there’s no harm in installing it either way. Even after putting in the registration key, it can be unregistered for installation on another computer. Then it’s easy enough to repackage everything.

    But still, you don’t spend two thousand freaking dollars without being extra careful and extra thoughtful on what you’re doing. So I doubt it’s a mistake.

    I know several people who make $2,000 in a matter of days. It certainly isn’t out of the realm of possibility that someone with a good income is also a fan of Spoony.

    Someone brought up the possibility of a teenager (or anyone else for that matter) using a credit card which doesn’t belong to them. That could also be possible. If Spoony wants to be extra safe he should just wait until he gets proof of who sent it to him, or just really wait until Christmas to open and use the gifts. This should be enough time to catch and trace any misconduct, if theft was indeed involved.

    Spoony, assuming these gifts were sent lawfully (which I believe they probably were), enjoy them. I think it’s the least you deserve for making us all laugh over the years. And whoever sent them certainly was sure of what they were doing.

    It’s a Thanksgiving miracle!!! Were it me receiving this supremely awesome and extremely creepy gift, I would wait about two or three weeks, while trying to find out the donator’s (or donators’) name and address (names and adresses), and if nothing came of it, just say “To Hell with it” and start using the shit. It’s your call though, dude.

    well, I believe that there’s generous and then there’s overkill. I mean yes, it’s a great gift, nobody’s denying that. I’m sure Spoony’s also thinking about the other things in the world that $2,000 could have gone to instead of him. Spoony’s a very humble person. I mean that kind of money could seriously help out some families that can’t get gifts for their kids. I’m not trying to sway Spoony’s decision one way or another, but a $2,000 anonymous gift isn’t really anything to just go “oh, okay!” without really thinking about it first.

    But these are just my views on the situation.

    I’m glad he received a gift he’s deserved for all his hard work keeping us entertained despite his personal roadbumps along the way. It also really shows his character how he’s hesitant about receiving such a gift.

    That does seem like the sort of thing that would be VERY difficult to do unintentionally or fraudulently. Considering the price tag is above the spending limit of a lot of credit cards, it seems to me that the person who sent probably has either a large credit line or enough saved that they could afford to throw around that much money.

    Receiving anonymous gifts through Amazon is always a little unnerving though. There’s not really a proscribed way to react to such things like you could if the person had walked up and given it to you. Is there no information available from Amazon?

    So in my opinion, wait it out a bit and if no one comes to claim it while proving he paid for it just use it yourself.
    Ofcourse it would be easier for the person to just show himself and tell you he sent it to you as a gift

    Whoever sent you this gift clearly wanted two things:

    1) He/She/They wanted you to have it. This implies they are a fan or a friend/family member and wish to support you for your own sake or for their own entertainment. At worst, this is a mutually beneficial exchange, at best an act of benevolance. There is no moral reason not to accept on these grounds.

    2) He/She/They wish to remain annonymous. This means that whatever they want from you, they will gain solely by giving you this gift, which means that you are in no way endebted. Again, no reason not to take the gift, morally speaking.

    In fact, I might say that trying to force someone to reveal their identity is morally wrong, and refusing to use their gift is a sort of emotional blackmail. For whatever reason, they chose to give you a present under the condition that you do not find out who they are. That is the price of the gift, not knowing the who or why. Accept it, use the software to make more videos, entertain the thousands (AND THOUSANDS) of your fans, and be happy knowing charitable people do exist.

    PS: It’s either a collection of your peers and fans, your parents or a wealthy relative, or a very independantly wealthy individual who enjoys your reviews. Two of those won’t be hurt much by giving you this donation, and the third clearly thinks it’s in your best interest to have it.

    I also think that the fact that it was given anonymously is a good indicator that they wanted you to have it. You are the kind of person that would send it back, saying that it was too generous. So they didn’t give you the option of doing so.

    I also think that the fact that it was given anonymously is a good indicator that they wanted you to have it. You are the kind of person that would send it back, saying that it was too generous. So they didn’t give you the option of doing so.

  • Dapacman

    You’re in the running for Funniest Person to Follow, that’s not an accident. You deserve whatever gift you may get by whichever anonymous person may send it. And yeah, you don’t have the option of sending it back.

    Hey this is my first time posting here, but I’ve been watching your videos for quite some time now.

    what can I say spoony? you totally deserve that great though expensive gift, but I’m with you on knowing at least who or whose send it, because if it really is the mafia, you won’t be able to make mistakes on your videos or they will cut one of your arms or something.

    Come on Spoony, you really deserve it! I admit I’d be blown away if I were in your position, but whoever sent it must have thought it through, you would if the stuff was that expensive, and known they wanted to give it to you. Just make sure you put it to good use now ;) !

    I have agree with the majority here: don’t look a gift horse in the mouth. I know it’s hard to believe, but there are people out there that never had to worry about student loans and if one (or several) of them wants help you, it’s almost rude to question it. As for remaining anonymous well… if someone sends you a gift that expensive, especially if a fan that doesn’t know you personally, it would be kind of awkward not to. I mean, you’re basically obliged to either return the gift or blow them… I mean, that’s what courtesy demands, so, anonymous is definitely the way to go.

    Oh, and my theory is that there’s some sort of Howard Hughes/Doktor Sleepless-figure issuing expensive software packages to various internet personalities as means of sewing chaos.

    Spoony is a nice guy, and I agree with you all that he should keep it, but I understand the way he feels. Someone, Somewhere Thinks he’s soo awesome that they just blew over 2 thousand on him, and for someone as humble as Spoony it’s hard to accept that.

    I would have issues with it too, to be honest.

    But Spoony man you deserve it. you really do… but I wonder if it’s not a loved one that has yet to say anything.

    Wow, that’s a blessing, Noah, I think you should just hold off on opening it for now, but if you don’t hear back from anyone, keep the software, man, you do fine work, and you’ll put it to good use.

    On a side note, I just got back from Ninja Assassin and it was BAD!!

    Hey, Andy and Larry Wachowski, why must every hero in your films be unlikable, Neo-esque stereotypes who are completely devoid of personality?

    Trust me, man, this movie’s an unmitigated turd sandwhich.

    A possible thesis statemen to sum this movie up: While the scope of “Ninja Asassin” appears to have an intersting enough concept, the film itself is about as smart as running head-first into a tree.

    Keep up the good work.

    I’m with Scourge on this one; it could just be 200 loyal fans giving $10 each to buy this for you. I mean, think about it, Spoony; if every one of your fans gave you $10, how much would you get?

    I mean, I wasn’t involved with it in any way, but I have seen 400 people at my old high school each chip in $5 in order to buy some kid a camera and other junk so he could start making student films. It’s amazing how much cash you can get if you ask enough people for a small amount.

    But I’m happy for you, Spoony. With any luck the person will contact you and say you can keep it. Imagine the videos you can make with that stuff.

    I can understand your hesitation. At a previous job they bought in that very same package and it’s quite something to actually hold the packade for that expensive software in your hands (sounds corny, but hey :P)

    I’d say get in touch with Amazon, since they were labeled the buyer, and see what you can find out. If you don’t get anything out of them, go ahead and use the software. I wouldn’t trust anyone sending a mail saying it was them (or comments for that matter), because you just can’t verify that it’s true. Even though the real donor might send you a mail about it. Sucks, yes, but you just can’t be 100% sure.

    Anyways, congrats on the awesome software man.

    THAT, is some unbelievable act of generosity Noah. I hope whomever it is contacts you soon and tells you to just use it. I mean, I know I wish i could help contribute to your site and your film work in some way. It seems to me that someone else feels the same way and even though they couldn’t be there to work on the films in person that they did the next best thing instead and decided to send you something to send your videos to the next level in terms of quality. Considering the cost of the item i think they knew what they were doing in sending it to you and even went the extra mile to make sure you didn’t know who it was. It’s not like they didn’t KNOW the price on the item when they bought it for you. My advice is to see if they do contact you in some fashion and listen to what they have to say and use it. I think they wanted you to do just that anyway. Have a great Thanksgiving Spoony!

    I just watched Spoony’s review of new moon and it was pretty funny. I have never seen the movies nor will I ever because after seeing the review it just fortified my understanding of the movies and that is its just crap for gals and gays, witch is okay but not my kind of thing. It sounds to me viewers could have spent that eight or ten dollars on something that is actually worth eight or ten dollars. I’d like to inform Spoony and this board about two free online videos one called Zeitgeist and the other Zeitgeist Addendum. Zeitgeist Addendum, in its broad view, would explain why bad movies like Twilight are made. http://www.zeitgeistmovie.com/ As a viewer I’d like to hear Spoony’s slant on Zeitgeist.

Zeitgeist Addendum, in its broad view, would explain why bad movies like Twilight are made. http://www.zeitgeistmovie.com/ As a viewer I’d like to hear Spoony’s slant on Zeitgeist.

    That’s an amazing gift, and it is a little unbelievable to think that someone is willing to spend that much money anonymously, but that’s low self-opinion talking. Spoony, I’ve got the feeling that you’ve really just thought until now that you’re some dude, doing something he enjoys, and keeping some people entertained while doing it. Nothing major, just out for a good time. I think the Open Web Awards, getting to the top FIVE proves it’s more than that, if the constantly increasing web hosting requirements didn’t tip you off already. This might be a single huge gesture from one person, to demonstrate how much you mean to them, or it might be a few dozen, or hundred of your followers banded together to do it. And I really don’t think you’ll know for sure who donated it.

    wow, just wow.

    honestly, i could not open this out of fear that amazon sent it by mistake and they would want a refund if it was used. usually stuff with serial numbers can’t be returned so i would be scared that i had to pay 2k bucks because of a mistake.
    but hey man, the chances for that are very slim. so just enjoy premiere and after effects (i think you will use those the most) and check videocopilot.net on tutorials how to use AE. :)
    love your stuff, here’s hoping it will get even better.

    Hey Spoony, I know this is a difficult gift to accept because of its value, but I think there are a lot of us who would happily buy you whatever you asked for if we had the money. You bring a lot of joy to a lot of people and it’s wonderful that someone had the wherewithal to repay some of what you give to all of us!

    $2000 of quality equipment is definitely an extremely generous gift, and I can only assume the person who sent it you wanted to out of kindness and a lot of expendable income. Hats of the the person who sent it you, but at least you’re being cautious and making sure, $2000 is no laughing matter.

    Chances are that the software package was from a single well-off person; if there was a collaboration between multiple people a quick look in the forums would reveal so or they would have included all their names in the package since there is anonymity in numbers. They have seen the troubles you have gone through and in spite of all of them continue to bring entertainment to the masses. He/she has given you the software in hopes that you continue to provide people with entertainment and will become better at it with the aid of your new software.

    To ask for this person to reveal their identity under the threat of not using the software is a low blow and an insult to their intelligence. Please reconsider your stance regarding the use of the software. This type of software is not simply for you, it is for all of your audience.

    I can see where you are coming from getting $2000 worth of stuff randomly would feel weird. However the person (or persons, which is more likely) who send you this may want to remain anonymonous, and maybe you should wait X amount of days and if you don’t hear back from anyone open it, or maybe Amazon can track something like that?

    You can’t torrent physical objects, and a pretty quick look would reveal if they were burned DVDs or something.

    Also, Viseroid hit the nail on the head. I understand how you feel, but having a gift unaccepted even if it is for a perfectly innocent reason feels pretty terrible. I’m sure they thought it through before sending it to you.
    I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, if you really need to ease your conscience you can make a thank you video of some sort. But they obviously wanted you to have it, so use it! ;)

    I wish I was as lucky as Spoony. Damn that’s a pricey gift. I do think that its a collab of fans that pooled together the money to get you this set. I say use and abuse it because it could up the quality of some of your videos by a large amount (not that they were of shit quality before, but c’mon, this is high end software.)

    I guess think of it as an early Christmas Gift from all of us?

    Not to make you paranoid or anything, but.. did you see “Sicko” with Michael Moore, when he “anonymously” donated money to save the wife of one of his critics, and then turned the whole stunt around into a “look how cool Michael Moore is” ending to his movie?

    … Not that I’m saying Michael Moore gave you the software! Anyways if I were you I’d just gracefully accept it and keep making cool posters for your website. (Well technically if I was you I’d have stolen the software off utorrent months ago, but that’s not important right now.)

    In my life I’ve had opportunity to talk with many individuals who’ve been successful financially. It’s given me the perspective that a how much is a lot of money is really relative. To someone on the streets, $2,000 is a lot of money. To others, it’s a tax write-off.

    Some people do that kind of selfless act to push themselves into a lower tax bracket and have access to more of the money they earn. Seems far fetched, but I know of a guy who bought a high-performance car for someone as a tax write-off for that very reason.

    There is no reason to think you’ve got a stalker or are funded by mafia activities.

    To everyone saying he could as well have torrented that, yes but if he used that for anything official or something that involves money he might end up in deep crap.

  • Redbob86

    Two years ago, I might’ve felt guilty too. But now I realize that it feels good for other people to give, and for you to not protest or make them jump through hoops for wanting to do something nice for you. You have no reason to feel guilty, for you have done nothing wrong and this gift is not a wrong thing. You also have no reason to feel like you need to “earn” or “deserve” something like this, because that would defeat the whole purpose of generosity and gift-giving. If you had to “earn” these things, they would not be generous gifts given out of good will, they would be entitlement payments that you should expect to recieve, and the kindness just wouldn’t be there.

    My advice to you is just accept this gift and enjoy it, and be thankful to the person who did this. It seems this mysterious person knows a great deal about charity and generosity, not just because of the gifts he gave you, but also because he chose to remain nameless. By doing this namelessly, that means he’s not doing this expecting praise or vanity, or expecting anything in return.

    Spoony, I know you tend to see the glass half-empty, but there ARE good honest people out in the world. Just accept his or her kindness, and don’t tarnish this generosity by feeling guilty when you shouldn’t.

    Two years ago, I might’ve felt guilty too. But now I realize that it feels good for other people to give, and for you to not protest or make them jump through hoops for wanting to do something nice for you.

    This is really strange because I checked out your wish list site once and wondered what would happen if someone bought you the Adobe thing.

    It’s going to be hard to accurately know who sent it to you. It might not be a fan, but maybe a close friend or family member. Still, you shouldn’t feel guilty about it Spoony. You do all of us a great service on here with your reviews and efforts. You bought a lot of laughter into people’s lives and that’s gotta be worth something.

    I’d sit on it for a while, and if nothing else comes of it or happens? Use it for the purpose it was intended for.

    I’m surprised that someone would actually buy that Adobe package as well. Who ever bought it must be a really big fan of yours. I don’t mind donating some money, but even I can’t afford this Adobe package. I would wait a few days before using it. Hopefully, the person who did buy will eventually email you.

    If it makes you feel any better, there are plenty of professional and educational discounts that cut it down to just a few hundred dollars. It’s still noteworthy, of course, but nothing you should be too troubled over.

    How about this: leave everything packed for about a month or so and wait what happens.

    I hope you have the means to authenticate any claims about people telling you they were the donors. Whether they say you should keep it OR send it back or whatever.

    Maybe you could try contacting Amazon (Inc) directly for more information about the generous donor.

    You either have one wealthy fan or a group of people who put their money together. I can’t believe it was a mistake. But even if it was, you have legal shipping documents and everything. The worst that could happen is, that you’d have to give everything back and deinstall it on your PC. (At least I think that’s the worst that could happen… I’m not a lawyer…)

    If nothing happens: use it, and use it hard! Some people obviously want you to have it, so have fun with it.

    And don’t feel guilty about it. If anything, we should feel guilty about getting this much high quality entertainment for free and only being able to give you back so little.

    You are a loved Internet-Person. That’s what you get for doing all this great stuff you do. :D

I mean, at my school we get adobe products for free thanks to a deal our university made with Adobe. It’s possible this person might’ve gotten it by weird means and decided to pass it on to you. Either way, I say enjoy it. n_n

    Yeah while that kind of a gift may seem crazy to the typical person, people who have alot of money can often be very generious. There are a few internet personalities Id donate big bucks to had I a few million dollars, no question. Spoony being one of them. We’ve all received hours apon hours of free entertainment over the years from these guys, and its only fitting that they get something for their hard work, well something more than internet fans they’ll rarely meet and the occasional creepy stalker.

    The guy who bought this for you didn’t buy it by mistake, or on a lark. He dropped $2,300 on you for a reason, and it wasn’t just as thanks for what you’ve done already–it’s a downpayment on your future work. He thinks you have talent, and he wants you to be able to achieve to your potential, not held down by editing software. By taking that package and not using it, you’re wasting his money. Open the package, learn how to use the software, and put it to work.

    You want to show your unending gratitude? Give your benefactor a pseudonym and give him Executive Producer credit or somesuch on the videos you make using the software. Keep up the good work.

    Wow… That is really a big surprise. Probably somebody meant this as a present to your three year anniversary. But it’s really strange, that there was not even a note of the sender’s name. I agress with the other forum user’s opinion, that there was probably some discount involved. But is this discount also legal for giving it away? You should probably wait some time to await an reaction from the person/people, who gave it to you.

    Well Noah, all I can say is you are a lucky guy. But I wouldn’t feel too bad about it. Someone with $2000 dollars to throw around has gotta be rich, and wouldn’t even notice $2000 dollars when its gone. However to the average Joe, thats alot of money to get for nothing. But you didn’t really get it for nothing, you presumably got it because someone really likes the show and doesn’t want to see you being held back, so they are happy to part with what is likely a small sum of their money to make it happen.

    Who knows, maybe Al Pacino is your biggest fan.

But you didn’t really get it for nothing, you presumably got it because someone really likes the show and doesn’t want to see you being held back, so they are happy to part with what is likely a small sum of their money to make it happen.

    Who knows, maybe Al Pacino is your biggest fan.

    thats insane spoony, but i agree with 161. This could be some 16 year old kid who got a hold of his parents credit card and bought you this. I wouldnt even unwrap the thing until you get a confirmation email from the person. But if you do and they say its all right that would be great.

    I think your method choice is the best idea. Make sure its both a serious gift and that the gift….er is sure.

    I agree with a couple of these other guys tho, It seems more like the work of a group of people. either that or an eccentric benefactor.

    way to go Spoony! you’ve impressed one of those rare rich wackos. xD

    To all the people sayin “it could be a kid with his parents credit card”. You’re not helping the situation. Spoony is obviously feeling guilty about getting so much moneys worth of a gift. Adding to that, the paranoid thought that it ‘could’ be some kid doesn’t relieve that sort of guilt, it makes it worse. The only way he can he absolutely sure is to get proof of purchase from Amazon, and from there track the donor down.

    i dont think some kid w/ their parents credit card would know of the program…
    spoons could also return the package… the first thing that came to my mind is that a program of that magnitude would enable him to make videos of a much higher quality… and it may be expected… and it would increase his workload 10 fold (to say the absolute least)
    if he were to take full advantage of the program, we could expect a release twice a year, with little vlogs inbetween featuring a sleep deprived scruffy spoony… i’m exagerating slightly, but you get my point. THINK OF THE UPDATES NOAH, THINK OF THE UPDATES…

    THOUGH…
    humble and likeable as always, but i would think of it as a gift from someone who was a fan of the site, did something aweful, is going to prison for a very long time, and spent the last of his money to make a contribution to the free entertainment he enjoyed in between getting christian with children and digging holes in his backyard, knowing fully well that having 2k in convesary funds will only get him bullied into spreading his cheeks and lifting his sack, when all he really wants to be is the obscure creepy inmate who works in the library and collects rocks in the prison yard w/ morgan freeman. After realising the reality of the situation, i’d say open the package, because this guy might not move to the beach and become a sailor after realising his gift horse was looked in the mouth, seeking redemption with his ‘saw’shank… food for though, yall…

    Awww I can see that so many of you have yet to feel the touch of an dissolute Arab or Malay prince. Keep faith, if anything this shows that you don’t have to be an attractive woman to have oil money lavished on you.

    I remember a great quote from the proprietor of a magazine when it lost its arts council funding. A bunch of wealthy bankers were throwing money at him and he said he felt like ‘an 18th-century Roman choirboy “after the cut”: the voice is up a couple of octaves and twice as loud.’ That’s spoony.

    Other options are coke addled traders who mistook Spoony for a webcam girl and are now expecting some high definition explicit videos or maybe Climate change deniers/supporters who want game reviews to include remarks about how this is/isn’t what the weather will be like if we don’t/do change our ways.

    Take a few days “off”, dont think about it, and if you really REALLY need to know who it was, there’s probably a way to contact amazon’s customer service or something to not necessarily get private infos on your donator but just send hem a Thanks card via amazon.

    That way the donator remains anonymous, and i’m pretty sure such an act woudl be awesome to whoever sent you this.

    Spoony, there is an old expression. It’s called “Don’t look a gifthorse in the mouth.” You’re a dude on the internet who reviews things. Some other dude on the internet gave you a tool to better review things. The best thing you can do is to review things with this gift that this other dude gave you. It’s adobe flash, not freaking cocaine. The person who gave you the gift clearly didn’t make a mistake, in that he gave you a gift specifically tied down to what you do.
    And as for an issue with identity theft, or a kid stealing his parents credit card….
    If that’s true, the credit card services do provide a way to clear any sketchy actions up. But really, the chances of either of those being true are slim to none. Take the gift, and use it to make awesome videos. That’s the best way to honor the person who gave you the gift.
    The person obviously wants to remain anonymous, so respect his/her wishes, and just take the gift!

    Spoony, there is an old expression. It’s called “Don’t look a gifthorse in the mouth.” You’re a dude on the internet who reviews things. Some other dude on the internet gave you a tool to better review things. The best thing you can do is to review things with this gift that this other dude gave you. It’s adobe flash, not freaking cocaine. The person who gave you the gift clearly didn’t make a mistake, in that he gave you a gift specifically tied down to what you do.

    If you do good, don’t talk about it. You can’t really expect the donor to reveal himself, it’d make him look like a show off. People who do real good are usually not the type to brag about it.

    Happy about your gift, man. Hope it helps with the show and everything. Well deserved.

    I don’t really know what I would do in that situation, I can understand your worry since that is a ludicrously expensive gift, but I think it’s unlikely that a kid stole his parents credit card or that someone bought it without thinking. I agree with anyone that’s saying don’t look a gift horse in the mouth, this is an insane opportunity for you to make your already excellent work bigger and better, and I think you should take advantage of it.

    Personally, i sailed the seven seas for those programs.

But yeah… If it’s genuine store bought… Daaaaaamn. I’d imagine it was a company that liked your review of their product (Most being negative is besides the point!)

    Make all the effort you can to determine who the donor is, but I’m not sure that’s actually going to be possible short of Amazon releasing the information. After that you’ve done all you can do. Use the programs and enjoy them.

    I kinda agree with 237.
    Just wait for 2 months and if no recall is issued until then, it’s all yours. Any fraud/thieving kid/whatever would have been discovered by then.
    But more likely it’s simply someone with some money on the side who likes your work. For you n me it’s 2 motnhs of wage but for some other people… it’s simply the question if you are spoiling the with gifts like that. ;-)

    Besides, this gift is very specific to what you do. And it will help you to do it better. So wait, and then be grateful and show off what this gift did for your video editing :-)

    This is a long shot, and i could be wrong.

    But can’t you kind of ask to send it back? I mean, there must be an address on the package?

    And also if there is an address you could snoop, google earth? =P!

    I know it’s kinda a bit invasion of privacy or what-have-you, but this person spent 2 GRAND on you, so i think really the person won’t mind if you found out his address and sent a letter. Or found his e-mail because of his address. Somehow.

    I’ll shut up, i’m not being of any help! xD!

    Well I don’t know what to say in terms of advice, but I will say that I assume the person didn’t buy it by accident. Good on you Spoony; you create a good enough product that you inspire generosity in others!

    Keep us posted on the issue though? Obviously not asking you to reveal the name of the gifter (since they obviously want to remain anonymous), but I would be interested to know if you hear from them, and how this resolves itself.

    Congrats! What a great Thanksgiving surprise for you! :D

    Personally, if I were the one who sent that to you, I’d be a bit offended if you didn’t accept it. I’ve been jonesing for a new copy of the Creative Suite for a long time (I have the student version of CS2) but all I want are the programs I know–Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, InDesign and Flash (and now that Flash is in 3D, I technically don’t know it anymore). Seriously, the Master Collection? My grandma gave me twenty bucks today to give her a ride to a from my family’s Thanksgiving feast, and I thought that was unnecessarily generous, but I took it, and I’m thankful for it (no pun intended). So my advice to you, is take the gift with MUCH thanks and admiration for this very generous and obviously well-off individual. If not, can you send the Master Collection to me? I don’t have it and I have a motherfucking degree in Graphic Design and Multimedia!

    As much as I know you’re probably not going to listen to me over the other guys here, I would really keep this.
    This is just my warped view on humanity, but we’re awfully weird when it comes to generosity.
    I’ve noticed that people, depending on how things are worded, would actually become OFFENDED by this kind of gift, because it can be interpreted as the buyer feeling pity towards you.
    If it was me sending something this great (yeah, like I’m ever going to be able to buy this), I’d probably keep it anonymous too, or just have at least a note saying “I absolutely love your work, keep being awesome. Here’s stuff to help ;D”. The lack of a note is kind of odd, but I don’t know how Amazon works, so I’m not going to comment on that.

    So yeah, keep it. Don’t let some anon’s good will go to waste.

    How exactly is Spoony looking a gift horse in the mouth?

    He just wants to be sure that it was meant for him and that some kid didnt use his parents credit card to make the transaction. Christ. I’m sure Spoony would accept and use it if he knew it was legit.

    hay spoony, i read some of these comments, and i have something i would like you to hear.

    about 2 years ago, my dad and my grandpa were talking about there stocks.

    my dad, not being good at stocks lost 25% of his money, somewhere between 7000-12000$ i don’t remember exact there. he only said 25% to my grandpa though

    to that, my grandpa said WOW, i didnt lose that much, only 700,000$

    this was a HUGE shock to my dad, i mean, he knew his dad was rich, but never to what extent.

    i hope this has some meaning to you.

    my dad, not being good at stocks lost 25% of his money, somewhere between 7000-12000$ i don’t remember exact there. he only said 25% to my grandpa though

    to that, my grandpa said WOW, i didnt lose that much, only 700,000$

    this was a HUGE shock to my dad, i mean, he knew his dad was rich, but never to what extent.

    i hope this has some meaning to you.

    I, too, think you should just keep it. People don’t buy such expensive things on a whim, and neither do they mail those things to people accidentally. Obviously this is someone’s way to thank you for all the times you’ve made our days brighter – god knows if we had more money, all of your fans would support you in a similar way. (With my bank account looking the way it does right now, buying Christmas presents from your shop will have to do.)

    DO NOT OPEN IT!
    Why? Look, I’m not sure, and I don’t have any proof, yet.
    But I’m working on it. I believe it was sent by DOCTOR INSANO to kill you. So DO NOT OPEN IT!

    I bought it for you. If you want to repay me then send me a signed copy of your Golden Girls fan-fiction story.
    … You know, the one with Tom Selleck, the jar of Skippy peanut butter and the Fixident for Bea Arthur’s dentures?

    I laughed, I cried, and I threw up a little in my mouth (and a lot on the carpet).

    I’m sticking my oar in rather late here, and obviously I can’t speak for everyone. But if I were in a financial position where I could afford to do something like that, it’s exactly the sort of thing I’d do. I’ve given comparably large gifts or sums to people I don’t know very well before, and I hopefully will again. I can understand if it makes you feel uncomfortable, but don’t feel guilty or undeserving – someone has done this voluntarily, presumably for the sheer hell of doing something generous. Make the most of it, and, optionally, ‘return’ the favour by doing something kind for someone else. Doesn’t have to be a huge donation of the same sort – just have a think for a few minutes about what thing you could do, however small, to improve things for another person, and go for it.

    /preach

    Also, you jammy bastard. :D

    I’m only commenting because I would totally give you a gift like that and I will feel bad if it went unused. Once in awhile life hands me a shining bag of luck in the form of money. I always use a huge chunk of it to do something amazing for artists I like. You, being an artist I like, are definitely on that list the next time life hands me a windfall.

    I don’t identify myself when giving gifts like that because it’s too easy for someone to try to return it and it’s way too easy for it to seem like a plea for attention. “Oh, please, Mister Internet Celebrity! Pay attention to me because I spent a boatload of money on you! Be my FRIEND!” Ummm, NO!

    There are other good reasons for remaining anonymous when giving an expensive gift. They range from religious conviction to not wanting to be seen as a possible future cash cow in case the artist starts seeking sponsorship for future projects. Alternatively, the gift giver may not want you to feel indebted or obligated. It isn’t a gift if you repay the giver.

    Ultimately, it’s up to you to decide what you will do with the gift, whether the giver chooses to be identified or not.

    I can certainly understand being humbled by this sort of gift and not being sure whether or not you should in fact accept it and open it. I do think that you should take this as a message that your work is appreciated, gives people something people to look forward to, and I’m willing to bet that the person that sent it would love nothing more than you putting that software to good use.

  • P4INKiller

    That’s awesome!

    I think the best thing you could do now is to learn how to utilize the software package to its full extent.
    Start with After Effects, it’s a great tool.

    woah dude! I didn’t realize it was master edition. Wow.. that’s amazing.

    Err… dare I sour it though, Adobe are planning on releasing CS5 soon.. :(

    Maybe you’ll get lucky next year too lol.

    I would guess it’s great advertisement for Adobe..so maybe someone from Adobe did it?

    Either way, great advert! And yes, you deserve it.

    I’m disappointed. Cinelerra and avidemux should be all you need. Thanks to the power of Open Sourcery, any additional needed features can be coded yourself. As a former IT guy, Spoony has the powah!

    But then again, I’m sure Noah is too busy for programming projects.

    Quick Spoony, it is I, Spoony from the year 2055. I hope that past me has received the package that I have sent to myself. I stole this from a museum and then used a black market time machine to send it back to the past before coming myself. Don’t forget to use this ancient technology to defeat the zombie dragon king and save the world in 2012.
    Sadly the time machine messed up that is why my post is two years late.

    Dude, I know this is years too late, and you’ve probably already utilized the package by now, but I’ve still got to say just how amazing that is. Someone blowing $2k to send you a collection of top-notch media editing programs? I’d use that in a heart beat, at the very least to ensure that they didn’t waste their money. I’d send you something myself, but my funds are monitored, so I can’t really shell out money all willy-nilly.
