Chapter 3 – Beware Our Power, The Fandom Might!

Yea, so that was a cheesy title, what can you do?

I saw today that the Serenity trailer will debut online. For those who don’t know, Serenity is the film spinoff of the CANCELED Fox program Firefly. Firefly was loved by the fans but treated poorly by the powers that be. Dumped after one season, the fans decided to not go quietly into the night. They bought the DVD in record numbers and pounded the offices of Fox Entertainment. The result? Serenity coming to a theater near you.

It can be done!

First off, I wanted to give a huge thanks to everyone who came to Ground Zero Lounge last night. It fills this cynical Geek’s heart with joy to see so many people rallying behind this cause!

I also want to thank all the people who are keeping me updated on the Coffee Cup Crusade via emails and postings. I wish I could respond to each one personally but the downside to having so many fans dedicated to Rick and Clyde is… I simply can’t keep up! (I guess there are worse problems to have eh?)

I would love to hear how the meeting at the Ross Island Market went. I so wish I could have been there, but some unavoidable and important issues are keeping me home bound for the moment.

Well, enough sappy wanking right?! Lets get to the real reason you are reading this CCC update! Tallying the numbers from emails, comments, and calls I’ve received since the last mugs count…we are at…drum roll please…


868 mugs! 247 separate letters!

Your friendly neighborhood Geek just received a transmission from his “Deep Throat”. After using my Little Orphan Annie Decorder Ring I read the following:

“Dude, Rick’s listeners are really having an impact down here. In addition to all the coffee cups coming in, they’ve been emailing our sponsors and telling them they’ll stop buying their products unless the show comes back. And there’s people protesting in front of the station right now, it’s crazy.”

We ARE making a difference. Keep fighting. Keep the mugs coming. Keep telling two more people. Keep talking to those sponsers!
