Xoanon here, this may have nothing to do with LOTR, but I still feel compelled to write about it. While visiting AICN just now I found out about this large SAVE ANGEL campaign. And I know a lot of LOTR fans will be interested in this.
Joss Wheaton and the folks at Mutant Enemy are STAUNCH Tolkien fans, there have been many a reference to LOTR over the years and I know personally that James Marsters is a big fan. Why should you attend this rally if you are the area? To help fellow fanboys in need!
There is NOTHING like the power of a fanbase coming together to rally the suits, so if you can…please stop by!

Wednesday, March 31 2004

Hercules from AICN writes: Someone wrote in a week or two ago about spotting pro-Angel picketeers around the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank, and I thought to myself, Dang! I can carry a placard! Wish somebody told me about it!
Now imagine if every Angel fan in Los Angeles were to converge on Burbank. Im pretty sure they all read Aint It Cool. This could be our chance.
PRESS RELEASE: SAVING ANGEL CAMPAIGN Announces Los Angeles Rally
Saving Angel to hold Viewer Rally at The WB Ranch on Wednesday, March 31, 2004.
On Wednesday, March 31, 2004, dedicated viewers of The WB television program Angel will gather at the Warner Brothers production ranch in Burbank, California to show support for the series and protest its untimely cancellation.
The rally is the latest step in a campaign orchestrated by Saving Angel (www.savingangel.org and www.savingangel.com), the coalition of Angel viewers who have come together in hopes of keeping the show on the air. SavingAngel has collected over $30,000 from devotees around the world, funding an unprecedented series of measures which have garnered national media attention.
“We had hoped that we would touch a nerve in the viewing public, but never expected the response to be so huge, nor the media coverage to be so encompassing.” said Lisa Rowe, SavingAngel Media Liaison. “I believe that it sends a signal to the powers that be in TV that viewers really do have a desire to watch good scripted shows, and are speaking up about it.”
So far, the campaign has included thousands of postcards and emails to network and media targets on a changing schedule, full-page ads in Variety and Hollywood Reporter, and a mobile billboard driving through the streets of Los Angeles (photos attached). The campaign has emphasized its desire to see quality scripted TV programming remain on the air.
Swing the crebbil!
