Re: B5 Hashtag ( #freeBabylon5 ) on Twitter

Two quick news items. Sadly, despite many of you voting your fingers to the bone, Babylon 5 didn't make it onto the ballot for the People's Choice awards. Thanks to everybody who helped. Let's keep trying to find inventive ways to increase awareness of Babylon 5!

Also, those who get the B5 Books newsletter may already know this but B5 Books announced last night that for the month of November they're extending the debut discount period on the gorgeous B5-20 book AND for each B5-20 sold this month, they're donating $10 to #FreeBabylon5. Woo-Hoo!!

ORDER B5-20, HELP #FreeBabylon5

We are extending the $46 off debut discount of B5-20 for the month of November. For every Babylon 5 at Twenty sold during November, we will donate $10 to #FreeBabylon5.

Re: B5 Hashtag ( #freeBabylon5 ) on Twitter

The new and improved #FreeBabylon5 website is up and running! http://freebabylon5.com/ Many thanks to Ranger Ben Read of Manifold Web Design!! You can read his blog about the site at http://manifold-design.co.uk/post.ph...reebabylon5com

I love the look and I'm proud to be able to point folks to the site now (as opposed to that embarrassing page I originally put up).

Re: B5 Hashtag ( #freeBabylon5 ) on Twitter

Here it is! It's time to 'get organized and loud', as JMS said back in September.

Support the Thunderclap and send the word out to everyone that you want Babylon 5 back on the air and you want all of your contacts to join us in contacting anybody likely to show Babylon 5 and let them know that we want to #FreeBabylon5!

Re: B5 Hashtag ( #freeBabylon5 ) on Twitter

I sent a Feedback email to Ion-TV asking them to air "Babylon 5" in syndication, since they have a contract with Warner Brothers Domestic TV Distribution. I mentioned the #FreeBabylon5 campaign and website.


Ion-TV
http://iontelevision.com/contact


Here's what I wrote:
==============================
Has Ion-TV ever considered airing the award winning TV series "Babylon 5" (Warner Bros.) in syndication? The Series creator J. Michael Straczynski and #FreeBabyloon5 movement is trying to get back on TV here in the US (It's already back on in the UK.) to expose it to a new audience and hopefully get new Babylon 5 universe projects made. Personally, I'd like to see the "Crusade" (the Babylon 5 spinoff and last good thing made in the Babylon 5 universe) somehow continued.

See http://freebabylon5.com/about/

BTW, WINP-TV is the Pittsburgh (with an h) PA market. I'm watching Psych on it right now.

Re: B5 Hashtag ( #freeBabylon5 ) on Twitter

Posting this here as well as at JMSNews.com:

Hey everyone, I just want to add my voice to the already loud shout of appreciation for Jan's hard work on this campaign. Doesn't she deserve a BIG shout of praise for her continuing commitment to the #FreeBabylon5 campaign?

It's not easy to organise all this stuff as well as hold down a normal life ... as well as the expense of funding the campaign mostly out of her own pocket.

And I for one wouldn't know how to handle myself in front of many fans at the forthcoming Comic Con.

It's about time we thanked Jan and Jenny plus the other campaign front runners for their determination, massive amount of hard work ... and now sleepless nights to add to that ... in keeping this campaign running!

Way to go, Jan. We're all with you.

Have you written your letters yet?
