Hi cloud watchers,

Just in case someone hasn't heard already, Rob Thomas launched a Kickstarter project today to fund a Veronica Mars movie. Full details here. The goal is to raise $2 million. If that much gets raised, the movie gets made. $1.7 million has been pledged as I type. But the more that gets raised, the bigger the movie's budget, so consider donating, if you can, even if the goal is reached.

Article on EW here.

And here is the cast video about the campaign:



This could really happen!

She mentions The Plane! Oh, I'm so stoked about this. Three years, two months, and 14 days later and she still remembers The Plane!

Thanks for bringing it to my attention, rowanceleste! (I keep forgetting where you have a _ and where you don't, A!)

Guys, I think it's time we need something like the Cloud Watchers campaign again. This movie will never get made if WB doesn't think we want it/that they'll make money. Which is exactly what the latest news on the movie front is kind of implying. A year ago, the hype for VM was pretty big. We have to do something to show that there's still hype and that there's still interest!

If anyone is interested, I'd love to start something. Anything we did to keep it on the air for season three we can do again. Is anyone with me? :D

Because I got a gift of the entire three season set, and I already have Season 1, I now have an extra Season 1 dvds. I'd like to donate the extra dvds(the new one, of course!) to a public library for viewing-not resale-purposes.

I do have three other stipulations on the donation: a)I'd like to be able to get a receipt for tax purposes b)The librarians in your library are friendly to the public. My public library is very unfriendly, which is part of the reason they're not getting it (I also donated one set already to them), and c) Your library does not have censorship policies in place and does not report on the borrowing/reading habits of its users. I'll take b and c on faith alone, but since this is a donation, I'd appreciate my stipulations being considered.

First email to me with address gets the dvds.

FNL fans are following in our footsteps and doing a DVD Drive for libraries. I sent them the most complete contact list I had for the libraries we donated VM to (phone numbers and email addresses for the top 30 markets, addresses and contact names and sometimes phone/email for everywhere else) but they still need help fleshing out the list. They don't have a community or a forum that I'm aware of, but here's a link to their site if you want to get involved in any way:

Fans4Writers is a movement of fans – fans of TV shows and movies, actors, directors, producers, crewmembers and everyone involved in the team effort of crafting wonder. But most of all we are fans of writers, because they are where the wonder begins. They write the words we remember, they create the characters we love, they think up the lines that stay with us forever.

As supporters of the people who develop and write the stories that have meant so much to so many, we wanted to do something tangible to show them that we support the Writers Guild of America strike.

And so we are proud to bring you - our fellow fans - Fans4Writers.com

Fans4Writers.com is a rallying point for all fans. We are supporting the strike through morale boosting activities, protests to networks and advertisers, spreading the word and educating the curious.

Originally conceived by fans of Joss Whedon, Fans4Writers.com has evolved to encompass fans of all writers. And we are committed to providing ongoing support for the duration of the strike.

So, what are we doing?

Our “Food for Thought” program delivers sustenance to those on the picket lines. Our “Postcard Protest” is a simple way to get your message to where it’s needed most. Our media campaign will tell the industry -- and the public -- in no uncertain terms that we support the writers' right to a fair deal. And if that weren’t enough, we have lots of goodies available to help you spread the word.

To find out more about what you can do to support the WGA strike, go to Fans4Writers.com

You can also help by donating to our “Food for Thought” and other programs. At the conclusion of the strike, any remaining funds will be donated to the Writers Guild Foundation to support its charitable and educational activities.

Remember, without the writers, there would be no fandoms. And without us, there would be no studios.

Yours in solidarity,
Fans4Writers.com

I was not behind this campaign till Jane Espenson told me and raelee that she and Joss Whedon and a bunch of Mutant Enemy writers were in favor of it. Then the creator of The Big Bang Theory approached us at Warner Brothers to talk to us about it. Then Joss posted about it and said the creators of Eureka and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia were also into it and suddenly I was all for sending pencils to media moguls. (Rob McElhenney is my new favorite Rob.)

Call me a follower if you want, but it's more innovative than I originally thought: it's a joint venture between showrunners and fans in support of ALL writers. It's historic!

Okay, what is Pencils2MediaMoguls?
We’re asking people to use our site to buy pencils to send to the six media moguls who run the six corporate conglomerates.

Why pencils?
A lot of different fan sites were suggesting that people send pencils to networks and studios. United Hollywood and Strike Points met with some of the television showrunners, and together we decided to follow the fans’ lead.

Pencils have become the symbol of our cause: We are putting them down until we get a fair deal.

Veronica Mars might not be on the air anymore, but the VM writers are still out there trying to make a living. Thank them for three years of VM by supporting their union.

I have not talked to the other mods about this and it is not like the media is calling us for a quote or anything, but I feel the need to go on record and say that Cloud Watchers supports the writers. Feel free to discuss you own opinions about the strike in the comments.



As fans of Veronica Mars, we value good writing and we expect writers to receive a fair percentage of all revenue generated from their creative efforts. We want new episodes of our favorite shows, but we want fair contracts for writers more.

We support all the unknown writers on the lines by supporting everyone who ever wrote even one episode of Veronica Mars. These people may or may not be current guild members and may or may not be striking, but when we think about how important the writers are in this equation, we think of them.

Got this email today from Readstown, WI:

We would just love to have a copy of season one and season two of "Veronica Mars." I've had a lot of people ask for them.

I have an extra copy of S1 I could send. Anyone want to buy them a S2 set?
