A Friend In Need: MITCH PILEGGI!

Yesterday I had the opportunity to talk a staunch supporter of this campaign and a lady not unfamiliar to fans of our sister franchise, the X-Files. Jen, of MitchPileggi.net was contacted by Mr. Pileggi and brought to our attention unfortunate developments in the lives of his family and I thought it our duty to help support Jen and Mitch in their efforts to bring this most deserving of news to your attention.

This evening there is an opportunity to join actor Mitch Pileggi (X-Files, Supernatural, Sons of Anarchy) for a gathering of family, friends and supporters to benefit his sister, Judi Ward in her battle against Leiomyosarcoma.

It is with great sadness that we learnt that Judi has been diagnosed with this very rare form of cancer – LMS affects 4 out of a million people. Sadly, Judi is no longer able to work and no longer has health insurance and event organizers hope to help defray the costs of treating this aggressive disease.

While the cause is serious, the event will be a fun, relaxed affair complete with prizes, gifts and a raffle of memorabilia from Mitch Pileggi’s television work. If you have the opportunity to go please do so and meet Mitch, have some fun, raise awareness of this disease and help support his sister through this most difficult of times.

We understand that many of you will not be able to attend the event but may still want to help. Judi’s family has set up a donation website just for this purpose: http://judiwardlmsfundraiser.yolasite.com/

We do hope you will join with us in spreading the word. Take this news to your Twitter feeds, Blogs and forums and lets see if we can use our united voices to make a difference. This is who we are after all.

Here's Dirt's Thing: SATURN DREAMING OF MERCURY!

Ladies and gentlemen it's time, once again, for our masked avenger, wrestlemaniac and super powered reviewer DiRT to cast his x-ray vision upon another episode of Millennium and direct his considerable following in our direction in the process.

DiRT has served up another enjoyable review, against the odds I might add as it would seem Lucy Butler has served up some demonic weather conditions where he is so we are all the more grateful to him for taking the time to share his thoughts on Saturn Dreaming of Mercury.

After something of a mixed beginning to Millennium Season Three, stories like Saturn Dreaming of Mercury went on to establish themselves as fan favourites, garnering much praise for continuing to develop the fascinating relationship between Frank and Jordan and giving fans another excuse to gaze upon Lucy Butler, albeit very briefly. If I had a pound for every time a fan had asked what the title means then it's fair to say I would be a rich man. I'll let you guys speculate as you see fit in the comments section. Over to DiRT and his point of view...

So is he right or is he wrong? Tell us your opinion of this oft debated episode and don't hold back, we're big fans, we can take it.

As always, every new video we add to Youtube, or is added to Youtube for us, reaches out to a whole new audience and may find a Millennium who never knew of our campaign in the process. Don't forget, keep sending those letters and postcards to Mr. Steve Asbell. Frank's Army Fights on!

As always, lend your considerable support to the man and go visit his own websites and find out what it's all about. Remember, every video made for the this campaign is an indispensable way of reaching out to a potential new campaigner.

Badge of honour: MORE EXCLUSIVE CAMPAIGN BUTTONS

As promised we recently unleashed our latest range of campaign merchandise in the form of inexpensive buttons, the sale of each results in a very small profit which will help support this campaign and allow us to look at more costly forms of promotion in the future.

The Frank's Army buttons are a fantastic way to show your solidarity for the cause and wear your support with pride and as each is emblazoned with our website's address they are a fantastic way to spread the word. Buy a few and give them to people you know who have seen the show, who knows it could result in one more soldier for the ranks.

Each button costs just over a pound and is an inexpensive way of supporting our campaign and getting yourself a little piece of campaign memorabilia in the process and if you have a little loose change spare why not purchase a few and mail to them to Steve Asbell: one more little push in the right direction never hurt.

And to expand the range a little I have created four more buttons from Frank's infernal adversaries. This time we have Clear Knight, Danielle Barbakow, Mr. Ho and The Marburg Prion lining up to do battle.
So head on over to our button store, peruse the range and consider making a purchase yourself. Don't loose sight of our goal, keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing you all wearing your Millennium pride on your lapels. This is who we are!

Avatar Vision Proudly Presents: Heartbeat!

Time, once again, for MusicMonday™ and our foray into the world of Millennium Music Montages. Whilst it may appear that I have Josef locked away in the basement, churning out Millennium videos whilst Orwellian slogans strobe by on a screen I can assure you I haven't turned into Ricardo Clement.

Josef takes to time to make these videos because he feels as passionately as we do about bringing Millennium back and anyone who frequents Youtube will know how much support and interest he is enjoying because of it and how many people have discovered us through his work.

So join with us, once again, for a slice of motion and movement and if this isn't a chiller I don't know what is. Turn the lights down low and keep looking over your shoulder. You never know who's prowling around in night vision goggles these days, do you?

As always, we thank our resident video alchemist Josef for taking this campaign and continuing to plug it in the vast abyss that is Youtube and we hope you will feel in some way inspired to follow in his footsteps and donate a little video magic of your own.

For those of you who were worried that Josef was experiencing technical glitches beyond his capability to solve them, rest assured. I can happily confirm that Josef is storming ahead with his next release and it's one I am really looking forward to. Let's just say it's written in the stars eh?

As promised, each music new release from Josef will be accompanied by a postcard that we urge you to send to Steve Asbell at 20th Century Fox. Making 20th Century Fox that we are here to stay and active in our support of a Millennium Movie is a vital way you can help this campaign achieve its ends. With a eager cast and crew and the financial support for a film currently being discussed they are the only fly in the soup with regards making this happen. Do not let up the fight. Stand loud and proud and send one more postcard.
