It's a very stupid question, I know, but in which episode does she say:"Oy with the Poodles." Huh

A little update on the petition link on German websites:

I have contacted somewhere around 25 websites but I'm not having much luck. One website has the link on the main page. And I got two more responses. One saying that they will put up the link as soon as their news section is working again and one saying that they don't want to help us because they think there's no point in doing so.

Is anyone else contacting websites (except Fran, divine and Junkie)? We really do need to spread the link some more! The signatures have been coming in slow recently.

Come on, guys, we need to step up!

This is a great list of Gilmore Girls websites -- I'm sure that we can add to it many other Gilmore sites, too -- and they'll all come in handy.  Here's the thing, though -- we're going to have getting the number of unique, honest signatures up to 10,000K and IMO the fast way to do that is to not just add Gilmore sites, but to add as many non-Gilmore sites that would be interested in Gg (such as more general TV sites such as, say, the E! Watch with Kristin boards and TV.com and teen magazine sites.  But also, we need you to get as many people that you know to sign it and we need you to get as many people as *they* know to sign it, and so on.  So, like, if you've got friends at church who like Gg, get them to sign the petition, memorize the URL:  http://www.petitionspot.com/petitions/great8mandate or write it down on a card or a piece of paper so that they can write it down. 

The goal at this point, to reach the vicinity of 10,000 signatures by July 28th or so is about 300 signatures per day.  That's not the least bit out of reach -- we've already done it several times.  The mission of this challenge, though, is to sustain that pace every day.  If we get a lot more in any given day, then that gives us some opportunity so take a breather.

Also, does anybody know if there's a Gg site or webring in South Korean/Japan/Asia or Korean/Japaanese communities here in the US?

So right now, the count stands at 2819 signatures afer starting out the day at 2770 or so.  So just to start off, ask yourself what are you going to do to help it get to about 3070 signatures by about 2am ET tonight and 3370 by 2am ET tomorrow night?  Or, to make it simpler, to 3370 by 2am tomorrow night?

ET revise a couple of numbers downward because my initial math was wrong.

Stracciatella has done a really great job with the German websites.  But we still need alot more help.   I  just posted links to 5 English websites either in the shoutbox, forum  or guestbook.  Rob is right, it specifically doesn't have to be a GG site, television/entertainment or GG Cast member sites will do.   I just posted the link in the Starpulse forum.

If anyone is posting to the websites that Rob listed, please look first to see if they already have a link.   I know that some of these sites are on the list Divine has.   Some websites had links to the petition, others did not.  Please post to the board if you post the petition link on any websites so Divine can update her list.

Thanks


Lets make a great effort to get Rob those 10,000 signatures so he can present them in person.

I just signed the petition, finally.  I`ve been really busy lately, so I'm not around the Great8Mandate forum much, but remember me if you need anything.  I`m more than willing to help.  [[=

Thanks, Darlene.  I definitely feel like I've been to the Firelight Festival today.  Wink

stracciatella and others -- If you get responses from websites that think that there's no point -- let them know politely that that's *exactly* why the campaign exists.  Sure, Amy says she wants to do a movie in a year or two and Lauren is deferring to her, but any letup in pressure will ensure that not even *that* happens.  By contrast, keeping up pressure when people were saying there was no point is what got Firefly its theatrical movie capper, Serenity.  So there's really no point in saying there's no point.

I have no idea how to politiely tell site owners who have given up that all the precedents for reviving a show mean "Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!" or "You do it because it's the right thing to do, not because you have a great fear that it won't ever happen."

If you're dissatisfied with the series season finale, you keep the pressure on to get a real ending to the show, whether it's a finale season or a 2-hour movie or somewhere in-between.  If you want it, if you think it should happen, then the odds don't matter -- you go for it anyway.  Especially since so many different precedents have been set -- and in some cases, set *often* -- that the odds aren't nearly as bad as they seem. Moreover, Lauren's deferring to Amy IMO should NOT be taken in a way that means that *WE* should defer to Amy.  Lauren is deferring to Amy creatively which to me, sure, fine, we should all take that as a given (not for granted, just as a given) -- we're talking about something else entirely, which is making sure that a real series-capping storyline is told AT ALL.  Thus, it makes no sense to defer to Amy in terms of the calendar, not when she's busy with Jezebel James -- so the pressure to get such a finale storyline, a season or a movie or something in-between, falls on the fans to keep demanding it, not on Amy to decide to do it when she feels like it.  (Not a knock on Amy herself, it's a knock on the concept of deferring to Amy in terms of timeframe.)

Sets are cheap -- it doesn't take much money relatively speaking to build sets, interiors and exteriors, that take place in the present -- these aren't spaceships or pirate ships or European villas, it's a contemporary New England township.  On exterior sets that won't be torn down.  On a series in which any revival would only require the rebuilding of about half the sets (if that) that were used in its most recent season simply due to where the storyline was directed anyway.  (Because half the sets were going to have been destroyed at the end of the most recent season anyway, cancellation or not).

IOW, the re-start-up costs for set construction and prop construction are minimal at best.  Some pieces that have been sold off (such as the Jeep) can be written around, the absence of one prominent character (Sookie, due to Melissa McCarthy getting another series) can be written around.  The reluctance of one of the actors involved in the collapse fo the negotiations to return to the show for a revival could be worked around and moreover, incorporated into the direction of any revival due to the very nature of the show's main storylines and relationships.  (Among them:  Empty Nest Syndrome.)

IOW, sure, it's okay to *doubt* if the show will be revived for a proper finale -- but if you think that the show calls for an actual finale storyline, a story that's actually convincing as a finale, that is clearly from the outset meant unequivocably as a finale, then forget whether or not you think it's *likely* that you'll get it, you go for it because you want it.  THAT is why Jericho was renewed and that is the ONLY reason that Jericho was renewed.

OTOH, if those site owners still won't budge, then they should at least come clean that they think that the season finale was accceptable to them as a series finale and therefore risk alienating their own site readerships.  Funny thing about that, though, zap2it's TV Gal, Amy Amatangelo, thought that the Gg season finale made a great series finale and *then* she received a LOT of protests from Gg fans and the result was a mention of the petition in her column two weeks ago.  I find it interesting and encouraging that she was open to changing her mind when some have given up.

I also received my CafePress "Great8Mandate" bumper sticker and placed it on my car earlier today.

  I also received my T-Shirt.... Pretty!     Grin
  Oh, and if anyone is around tonight the teavee voting could use some help.   We're almost back at #8!  http://teavee.com/gilmoregirls/

 
How hard would it have been to give us something more.  Like the end of charmed where they had 10 minutes of basically a flash-forward and you got to see how their lives turned out. 

   I just saw that last week (because I never really kept up with Charmed until my maternity leave).  But that finale was so good!

I'm trying. I emailed back but haven't gotten an answer yet.

I'm sure she was exaggerating. I remember an interview where she said she could still do certain scenes from 4 years ago if she had to. And the monkey lamp thing was 7 years ago. If I were her, I wouldn't remember either. It's like memorizing stuff for school. You just forget a lot of it. It's normal.
