Since we haven't heard anything about Heidi's website lately, I have a suggestion. I think someone offered to do this before but I can't remember who it was. In my opinion we need a website ASAP, especially for the Little Daisy Duke Campaign. We need something other than this thread to steer people from other websites towards. This thread is scary Wink .
Is there anyone who could create a very simple website, just to put up the LDDC and some basic information about the Campaign? IMO we need something to bridge the time gap until Heidi is done with her website.

So, I say: if anyone is up for it, go ahead!! What do you guys think? Do you agree?

The LDDC Campaign sounds great!
Is there a way we are presenting them?
Or are we just sending them to the CW's doorstop?
Last question, is there a set price or minimum we are paying?

Oh ap-cray!  I knew I forgot to mention those in the original LDDC post!

1)  We should be presenting them unwrapped in the boxes.  There will theoretically be some settling of the fluffed up daisies in transit, so the boxes will likely be just slightly tight.

2)  We're not just sending them to the CW's doorstop.  The thought is 1/3rd to the CW, 1/3rd to Lauren, 1/3rd to Alexis.

3)  It's a set price of $5.50 -- $4.95 per unit (1 unit = 250 daisies) plus 10% for shipping from OTC plus a one time extra charge of $2.00 for shipping from Heather to the three gals.  The shipping starts at $6.95 for 1 unit if you buy direct from OTC yourself, so that's why we're strongly urging pooling the money and having Heather buy the daisies directly from OTC.  Any order above $200 will get the 10% shipping charge, which is the lowest discount they give for shipping in bulk.  Sure beats 150% for the shipping of 1 unit.

4)  In formula terms:  Cost = (X units times $5.50) + $2.00.  If you decide after you send her the money for X number of units (X times $5.50) + $2.00 and then want to add more units, it'll just be (Y times $5.50).

5)  No set minimum on the number of units you want to donate for Heather to buy, but we're assuming that we'll meet the goal of $200 for the 10% shipping cost if . . .

6) . . . People spread the word about the Campaign.

FTR, I'm going to send Heather the money for 4 units (1000 daisies) or $24 total.  4 x $5.50 = $22.00, then add $2.00 *once* for shipping from Heather to the gals equals $24.  Or in formula terms:  cost = (X times $5.50) + $2.00. 

@ As for a website, I've PM'd Heidi for progress on her plan and am waiting to hear back from her.

  -- Rob

ETC a typo in which shipping one unit from OTC was $69.95 rather than $6.95

Season 8:  Because after 8 drafts, I think I've finally finished writing my now 2-page letter to Lauren (edited mercilessly down from 4 pages.)

Wow - so, first of all *prettystick* to Rob & Heather for all your organizing and spending so much time on this new project (as well as the previous ones!). I really love the idea with the small daisies and I am sure that we can collect enough money to send a huge amount of daisies to the three. I am going to send you money as soon as I received my salary - which should be right a few days before ending of the deadline.

@Frannie & everyone else who's finding links that aren't on my list - could you maybe add them? So have a big up-to-date list in the end? Thanks again for helping!! Spreading the word definitely brought a LOT of signatures on the petition so far, and I think we'll get more and more. This also shows that besides the people who say "give it up", the silent people still want GG and these people go and sign the petition Wink

As for the website - I think I already suggested that my brother could do this when this idea came up first. He's still up for it, but I think first we should wait before Rob hears back from Heidi.

If anyone wants to vote on AOL, here's the link again: http://television.aol.com/feature/tv-season-end-best-worst-poll  ... It says that results will be posted on Jun 18th, so we still have 2 days to vote. Gladly, Gilmore girls is still leading on the three Gilmore-related questions - way to go everyone!!  Grin

Okay, I just emailed most of the Spanish and Italian websites that Frannie sent me. I had to register in some of them,,,and many of them haven't been visited at all for so long. Anyway I sent both links the one for the Great8Mandate in here, and the one for the petition.
Hopefully, I'll hear from them soon, or they'll post the links in the website.

I have more to contact yet, but I need to study right now, I'll email more, later tonight, if someone finds more websites that haven't been listed in the Junkie and Divine's list, please let me know. Also if this list has been updated, I'd like a copy if possible, saying which ones need to be emailed yet.

See ya all!

I should be studying... but started playing the guitar and came up with this:

Seven wonderful years
Have come and gone
We've loved and admired
All those who made this show.

So many laughs and tears
Tuesday nights in millions of households
Every week all 'round the world
Made us feel at their home.

Friendship, craziness, coffee and love
Great ingredients for the best show
Seven wonderful years , but still
one more to go

I know we'll follow them where they lead
No matter what, they'll always be here
There's so much left to do
The story can't end right here.

Come back once again,
caus like he said, we'll always be around.
[/color]

Okay, that's it, if someone likes and wants me to, I can write some chords for it, and make a song.
You decide, haha.
I just wrote what came to my mind, I could write better if someone has any idea with it.

See ya all,

    Yay... everything is looking good!  *Prettysticks* for Heather and Rob.  I'm so excited to see our campaign going even more global.   Grin
    By the way I just voted again in the AOL poll and GG is still holding its own in all the categories it's mentioned in.  ETA:  Eek!  Shocked But  we're now in 10th place in the Teavee poll.  We're only 21 votes from number 9 so let's do a big push today and tomorrow?  http://www.teavee.com/gilmoregirls/

Just wanted to note three of Lauren's current projects:

1)  In the GoldDerby chat at http://goldderby.latimes.com/awards_goldderby/2007/06/transcript_our__4.html , Lauren noted that she is filming a movie with Matthew Perry, where she plays his wife.

gilmoregirlsnews.com had some more information on that project, which is an indie, via a Hollywood Reporter article, including the name of the movie, Laws of Motion, -- a title that I kinda suspect will get changed because it's a fairly generic title that's likely been used already.  The article can be viewed at:

http://www.gilmoregirlsnews.com/2007/06/13/lauren-graham-to-star-in-the-laws-of-motion/

The Hollywood Reporter link is from May 10th that announced that the movie was to begin filming, no mention of Graham as it was, like, five weeks ago.  But it's a great description of what the movie's about. 

2)  TV Guidle's Matt Webb Mitovich posted a newsbit reporting another role that Lauren hinted at in the GoldDerby chat:  a movie with Jeff Daniels at http://community.tvguide.com/blog-entry/TVGuide-News-Blog/Todays-News/Movies-Lauren-Graham/800017018

"Per Variety, Lauren Graham and Greg Kinnear are wife and husband in Flash of Genius, a drama about and I do not kid you the inventor of the intermittent windshield wiper and how years of legal woes suffocated his marriage."

3)  She also mentioned at the GoldDerby chat that she was next supposed to be playing the wife of Greg Kinnear -- the way she described it was supposed to be right after filming of Laws of Motion, but before Flash of Genius.  It's very possible that since she's signed to Flash of Genius that the Kinnear movie was put off. 

@ I detect a pattern here.  She's playing Wife roles.  (No?  Really?!)  Given that she was already asking the GoldDerby audience what they'd like to see from a Gg movie and is voicing more and more mixed feelings about how the show ended, methinks she might already be getting bored with the Wife roles 'cause they're generally plot devices rather than fully-formed characters.

  -- Rob

Season 8:  Because Wife roles suck.  Seriously, they do.
