RUE MORGUE magazine features BacktoFrankBlack

Check out the latest issue of Rue Morgue Magazine, #91, (follow the link here for more details and how to purchase online). BacktoFrankBlack features in their Dreadline features, to quote, "Movement to revive Chris Carter's Millennium gains online momentum."

The feature carries an interview with yours truly. There is plans in motion to have BacktoFrankBlack highlighted again on the Rue Morgue radio station, hopefully with Lance Henriksen as the guest interview. Keep your eyes peeled and your ears flappy for more news on that event!

Also inside the issue:

THE THINGS THEY'VE TOLD ME: FAN T-SHIRTS!

As you probably know this is one of most important Blog categories as it's your category. It's the category in which we share all your thoughts, email, photos and more besides and bring it to the attention of each other and, hopefully, the people that matter. Rhonda is one individual who has approached our campaign with gusto, tireless in her support of us, she never ceases to amaze me with her tremendous spirit and evident passion for Millennium and Frank Black.


Like a great many of you, Rhonda kindly supported our campaign by purchasing from our exclusive merchandise range designed by illustrator, Barry Renshaw.

We are always delighted when you are delighted and even more so when you take the time to show us how fine you all look in Barry's creations. It's even more heartening that Rhonda's daughter, Celeste, got in on the act and helped her mother with the photographs, it's so touching to know this campaign has become something of a family affair.

As you can see, it isn't difficult to make a huge impression. A letter here, a Polaroid there and the odd photo or two gives the fans a voice and a face and that's worth infinitely more than any blog post I write, or interview that we do. It is you, the fans, that hold the fate of Millennium in your hands and let's face it, "...we're not prepared to sit back and wait for a happy ending" are we?

So please keep your emails, blog comments, photographs and more coming. We need to mobilise our forces and become Frank's army. Let's fight the good fight till Lance Henriksen gets what he has always wanted, a Millennium Movie.

It would also be amiss if I didn't mention that tomorrow is Rhonda's birthday so I am sure you will join with me and all the team at BackToFrankBlack in wishing her a very happy birthday indeed.

Avatar Vision Proudly Presents: PILOT IS POWER!

To those who have been following this campaign, Josef has demonstrated his passion for Frank Black, and his eagerness to see the character return, time and time again. Of late, Josef has put his valuable talents to good use creating campaign videos and musical montages that we can use to raise our profile at our Youtube page. Not content with creating the odd video or two, Josef has set himself the lofty ambition of creating a video for every episode of the franchise and that's, well, a lot of videos.

video

As you can see he is not a man to rest on his laurels and the first fruits of his endeavours can be seen above. A stunning montage, created by selected edits of the Pilot and set to music, I am sure you will agree with me that he has surpassed himself again. And what may seem like mere entertainment is much more than that. Since we uploaded his video to Youtube yesterday I have received a number of subscriptions to the channel, comments on his efforts and and email from a Millennium fan or two that might otherwise not have heard of this campaign. Now that's what I call a contribution.
If you want to join Josef in the cause and create a little something we can use to expand our audience then we want to hear all about it. It need not be something worthy of Hitchcock, merely a heartfelt plea as to why you want Frank back, send it to me and I'll do the rest. Till then, enjoy Josef's incredible creation.
