09:19 pm - Welcome to the Panty Club for Homos!
First of all, it is Rob's birthday. Happy birthday, Rob!

Second of all, it is India's Independence Day. Fuck you, British Empire!*

Third of all:
Calling all VM fans: International Brainstorming Session

We have less than two months left to bring new viewers to Neptune. You know what that means. Time for another brainstorming session! The last time we did this, we weren't sure if we were even going to get a third season. Now we have to make sure we keep it.

It is hard to believe fan campaigns have accomplished so much in just a few short months: the plane got VM a ton of press, the DVD drive is almost complete, Neptune Online is a smash success, the VM MySpace has 1200 friends, and Neptune Pirate Radio is a top notch podcast.

Now is the time for fresh ideas. This is a group effort, so let's get together as a group and talk. Sign on to the WatchVeronicaMars forums on Sunday, August 20th at 10am PST/1pm EST/6pm GMT/7pm CET and we will brainstorm till we drop. (Registration is free and painless.)

This meeting is open to all fans, not just those in the US and not just those who have campaigned in the past. Everybody can help.

Bring your love for the show, your enthusiasm, and all the crazy ideas you can come up with.

Finally, and most awesomely:

ThePCH.net

Mars Investigations, Neptune Pirate Radio, and WatchVeronicaMars.net have joined forces to bring you the one-stop shop for important news and goings-on in the Veronica Mars fandom. It shall be our very own Floo Network, and, in time, we hope to incorporate other fandoms as well into the HIGHWAY OF QUALITY TELEVISION. Explore the gateway. Visit the sites. Tell your friends. Tell your enemies. Hell, tell your gerbil. Especially if it's got a Nielsen box. We need the ratings.

You can't be a proper country if you don't have a FLAG.

The pch site looks great. I saw the international titles thing. Are the Italian titles those that were used for the Italian airing of the show? And do you have the French titles? I didn't see them. I could probably track them down. And provide notes on them.

If there's anything that I can do to help, from providing translations to writing text to whatever, please let me know. I'm not really in the mood to join things, but if there's stuff I can do, I'd be pleased to help out.

And to hell with the British Empire, I say. They can keep their queen and, well, stuff her, for all I care. An anglophile, I am not.

Yes.

I don't think so but if you email the site, we could put them up!

Yep! If you can send us the French titles with notes, that would rock!

Well, can you make the brainstorming session? Then you can see how you can help out.

I found the French titles, which I emailed to the pch site, per above, but I didn't comment on them. I'll do that tomorrow, as I'm kind of baked right now.

I'm not sure about the brainstorming session. I'll see.

Oh Sunil, finally a "fuck yeah" moment I can rave along with you to -- Indian Independence...I may be in Manhattan for the humongoginormous procession -- I move up this weekend and I would be remiss if I missed it if I had ample time to make it into the city.

Dude! I've been all Drat, it's someone's birthday, and I can't remember who, and whoever-it-is will be irritated with me and know I'm a bad friend because I cannot frigging remember and NOW you tell me! It's ROB! He won't be mad. He doesn't know I exist! Silly brain, tricking me.

Very nice - look at you all behind the scenes organizational. Hee! Nice job. As soon as I recover from my SYTYCD obsession I will be able to turn on my VM obsession mode again. I did catch pieces of VM last night and I found myself missing it.

Course I also saw KB get shot on Deadwood Season 1 last night and that was a whoa moment. (But then what on that show isn't a whoa moment?)

I still need to see Deadwood. Or at least give it a try. I remain wary despite the accolades, although Oz surprised me.

Also, I did next to shit for ThePCH.net, but hey. I stood around and cracked wise at The Cheat.

Holy crap, that plane thing is awesome.
You're just a rabid, rabid, rabidrabidrabid fan arentcha?
I will get the VM dvds one day... they keep changing the time and day that it's shown here. I think they stopped it for a while, then randomly started it up again, blah blah blah. Like Buffy in the old days, basically. That's why I wasn't a rabid Buffy fan til the DVDs came out, and I'll probably be the same with VM.

I feel honoured to be singled out for offence. With a c. Because that is how it is spelt.
