|10:36 am - The Second of Many Pimpings|
The latest blog post includes a link to the worst article I have ever written. I'm putting the article writing on the back burner until I can kick this thesis into gear. More importantly, however, the post explains how HIV is (and is not) transmitted. Go, read, stop the stupid. Please leave blog-related comments on the blog.
The rest of the text of this entry is ganked entirely from that badass of badasses, alliterator:
I can't believe how far this thing has spread. I decided to help a Veronica Mars "renew our show" campaign on TWoP here by Photoshopping a fake two-dollar Veronica Mars bill. And guess what? People loved it. Holy heck. And now it's on a website and Chat with Kristin has mentioned the campaign.
So, for all you Veronica Mars watchers out there, here's a little something you can do to try and keep VM on the air.
1. Print out a copy of the fake Veronica Mars two-dollar bill (there are two versions: mine and cytox's - his is really good and bigger).
2. Write "Veronica Mars is smarter than me" on it.
3. Mail it to either the top brass at UPN or some local affiliates.
And for all you non-VM fans - what are you doing? WATCH IT!

Huh. I thought Veronica Mars was a huge hit and in a definite renewal. I think I'm the only person I know who's watched and it and didn't like it.
It's certainly not a "huge" hit the likes of Lost
or Desperate Housewives
, but it's getting decent ratings (for UPN, Tuesdays at 9) and almost universal critical acclaim. And Dawn Ostroff, the network president, is very supportive of the show. But it's not a guarantee. Rob Thomas
thinks its chances are about 50/50, and we'd like to tip the scales a bit.
I know you want all blog related comments posted on your blog not here. But since I refuse to make another blog/journal type account, I'm just not going to tell you how much I enjoyed your post.
Well, you can leave comments anonymously, as others have done. But thank you!
okay, i totally did not see the post anonymously in small type next to the giant SIGN UP NOW YOU NEED ANOTHER JOURNAL! ONLY TAKES THREE SECONDS AND YOUR SOUL! button. so, I apologize.
MTV used to air repeats of VM, but then they suddenly stopped.
You know, I'm really amused. My best friend and I used to correspond with Rob Thomas (more my best friend - I think he and I wrote a grand total of like, twice or something) when we were in high school and he was just some guy who wrote entertaining YA books. I've followed everything he's done since, and since most of them have been failures, I'm really not used to this whole fan worship thing. It's great. It's like everything I knew in high school finally paid off.
Heh. You know, he actually decided to address the TWoP fans directly here
, which just makes me like him more.
