I wanted to get some pictures to show you the huge shipment that was sent out in Los Angeles but unfortunately it seems like that is not going to happen. It has been raining pretty bad in Los Angeles and my only contact there was Ted who runs the Greater West Hollywood Food Coalition and has his hands full trying to get people fed outside in the rain.
I can at least share with you his words from a few emails we exchanged.
"The apples were -- and are -- a big hit. They're the best looking (and presumably best tasting) apples we've ever seen, and we are thrilled to have them."
"Thank you again for your great kindness, which made a big difference to us -- and, again, Merry Christmas."
Spud, an online grocer serving most of the West Coast, wasn't able to penetrate the fortress-like compound that NBC has created in Universal City. They are very specific on which trucks get in to their business area. Ours did not get through this time either. Let @Syfy on Twitter (Craig Engler) know we are not done protesting. With the recent cancellation of SGU, more fans are furious at the treatment of both our beloved shows and the entire fan base which helped build the Syfy network. Syfy has barely any original science-fiction programming left! The ones they have on aren't even close to being the thought-provoking and relevant series that Caprica is.
Don't forget to pick up your copies of Caprica Season 1.5 on DVD. I suggest giving them out as gifts to your friends and family who may or may not be sci-fi fans. I'm sure your local postal worker would love one as a holiday tip. I would suggest refraining from handing them out to train conductors and the like, or even robotic butlers.
For those of you who still haven't seen the final five episodes: Do it!
Who is going to organize any viewing parties for the marathon on Syfy? Post any in the comments or tweet them with the hashtag #SaveCaprica and I'll advertise them if they are public viewings. It would still be fun to see how many people are having them whether or not they are public.
I have a few more gimmicks in mind to keep the campaign going. Stay tuned.
And finally, for any of you in Seattle, Portland, SF Bay Area, LA & Orange County in the US, or Vancouver, Van. Island or Calgary in Canada:
get $25 off your first 3 Spud.com orders by using the promo code CRLAX-MEDROS. They have great organic produce and much more with fantastic customer service. If any of you are in New York, I highly recommend Big Apple Grocer who goes above and beyond for their customers.
