    Wow we are much better off than I thought, the youtube video will probably attract even more people to join, and yes we should only focus on TMS, because that is the whole point of the revolution.

    I'm pumped up for this event. As the video implies, we're doing it on Nov. 3rd. Correct?

    That is correct sir! In the comming days or weeks I'm going to be calling the number and record the convo I have with Disney. To kind of give people an idea as what to expect when calling.

    Alright. I'm looking forward to the day, when it comes.

    Awesome, so we only have 8 states so far, I guess that is good, but can we really manage to reach all 50 in a month?

    I'm almost positive that we can. Even if we reach 30, Disney'll probably release it. And, it also depends on if we get more than one caller from each state.

    Well we will do our best, and even if we don't have all 50 we will still go ahead with the event. Which will hopefully cause more buzz for another event after the holidays.

    Yeah, and if this one is successful, we could try it for other Muppet things.

    That's the goal at least.

    If anyone has any good pictures of the Muppets that would make a good cover for the YouTube Channel please let me know. I have had such a hard time finding one that I'm to the point of trying to make one myself.

    Sorry for posting three times on here but I wanted to recap the days events

    1. The launch of the Muppet Movement Channel: I was also able to edit a picture for the cover art, and I think it looks nice.

    2. The launch of the Muppet Movement's first video: We already have 18 views which is not bad for a little video.

    3. We have added two new states to our list Arizona, and West Virginia: If my counting is correct that's 9 or 10, which is way more then I honestly ever thought we would have.

    On a personal note, my wife has recently gotten a full-time job, and so I will be going from my full-time back down to part time. Which means I will have more time to devote to the movement Which is good because last week I don't think we grew that much if at all. I may be thinking of getting at least one or two helpers for the Facebook page to keep updates more frequent and things like that.
    I also want to do something that is a bit of a stretch, but something I think could really help the movement. I want to try and make The Muppet Show Seasons 1-3 accessible to people who may not have them. I'm thinking of doing contests. giveaways,and things like that. So that everyone who wants a copy of these can get them at no or very little cost to them. Again, it's a stretch but it is something that I would at least like to think about some more. If anyone has any ideas on that please let me know.

    It's been a big day for the movement!

    Hmm.. contests might be a bit of a little too far. But, Jim always wanted things more ambitious. So, we should try and make things more ambitious.

    I could help with the facebook page if you want.

    Contests, awesome I would love to do that, but the TMS season sets are no exactly cheap, even one of each season would cost you over $60, but really great idea for people to see what they cold get more of, I hope this works.

    Hey, I have seasons 4 and 5. I'll be willing to sell them for 15 dollars for an " meh" episode, and 25 dollars for really good episodes.

    Are you kiding, I already have seasons 4 and 5 as well as seasons 1-3 all on a ten disc set I found at a thrift store, but most of them are in passable or terrible quality especially season 2 and 3 ones and a lot have the UK spots cut out, which makes me want the seasons I do not have even more, the season 2 boxset I have is awesome. The whole point of this is to get the two seasons out on DVD, why would you sell your own?
     
  19. fozzieisfunny

    fozzieisfunny Well-Known Member

    Because, they're in FANTASTIC condition, and they have all the UK spots.

    Do you know how much shipping costs? I learned that the hard way when I paid $9 to ship a VHS tape of MFC to Canada in exchange for the TMS season 2 boxset, a really good trade, but why would I pay for unoffical versions of season 4 and 5, sorry.
