    Does anyone have any idea how many signatures will be needed before Dreamworks starts to consider an F&G release. As of now, 18826 people have signed up to the mailing list, which really is quite a lot.

    Wasn't My So-Called Life released following a similar mailing list? Anyone know how many people signed up to that? (Just for comparison)

    I believe I saw somewhere that 15,000 was the goal but now that I try to verify it I can't remember where I saw it, so I can't be sure.

    Judd hasn't checked in at the boards over at freaksandgeeks.com for a while. Hopefully he and Paul are working out the details with Dreamworks and we'll get good news soon. I hope.

    Just checked the site - the mailing list has over 20,000 people signed up! 20083 as of now.
    Bill - you mentioned hearing that 15,000 signups was the goal. I'm just wondering whether that could be that fact that in post 43 Steve said "Anybody wanna hazard a guess had to how many we're gonna need for Dreamworks to take it seriously?", and then in the next post he updated us with the then-current total of 15,004. A quick reading of the thread might mislead one to assume that the 15,004 was a response to the eariler question.
    Of course, if there is reference elsewhere to a target of 15,000, I would be interested as it is well exceeded by now.

    Actually, when I posted that it was at 15,004 I was just bumping (which had been dormant for about a month) the thread with an update of the number of e-mail addresses that had been aquired. Didn't mean to mislead anyone.

    Steve - I knew you were bumping the thread, I was just suggesting that it might possibly have been misread by someone.
    But the mailing list is still going strong. It's up to 20189, an increase of 100 in 24 hours. Not bad.

    Judd, you the man.

    Gotta save the music, especially Van Halen (opener), The Who, and The Grateful Dead. Hang in there!!!!

    I thought Joan Jett did the opening song?...Yes? No?
    "I don't give a damn about my BAD REPUTATION!..."

    These are very cool words from Judd!
