A note from Unfreakable:

I don't really look at this as a Democrat thing or a Republican thing or a political thing, I consider this an Internet thing. The same as when Fark helped send a crowbar and a Half-Life strategy manual to the scientist at the LHC that looked like Gordon Freeman in one of the publicity photos.

A lot of people are saying, "Hey, he can afford to buy his own car!" Of course he can. This isn't about helping Joe because he can't afford a car, it's about making a silly Internet meme become reality, and also to help some charities. If you really want to discuss politics, I'd ask that you go over to the politics tab; there are a lot of current stories there that you can discuss. This one is about having fun and doing something neat. If you don't want to join in, you don't have to--that's your choice. I'd just ask that you find a different thread that's more to your liking.

To all of you Farkers that have helped in any way, whether it was contributing with money, or time, or organizing any of this, or helping share the word on your Facebook wall or tweeting it--YOU FREAKING ROCK. Thank you for what you've done, and hopefully what you'll continue to do. This is awesome and everybody who has had a hand in helping to set this up or keep the momentum going is fantastic. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

This is turning out to be one of the best charity fundraisers I've ever seen.
 
2012-10-19 01:27:24 AM

Tellingthem via Unfreakable: A lot of people are saying, "Hey, he can afford to buy his own car!" Of course he can. This isn't about helping Joe because he can't afford a car, it's about making a silly Internet meme become reality, and also to help some charities.


This is what I don't understand. I've seen far, far too many posts bemoaning that Biden can afford his own car. Are that many people really missing the point? Why on Earth would anyone believe - particularly after having been told so many times - that this has anything to do with actually buying Joe Biden a Trans-Am?

This little stunt has been nothing short of inspiring, and I applaud each and every donor, and especially those who set up the system to make it happen. Bravo, Fark. Motherfarking bravo.

GJTB AND TV

Now that we're more than halfway to our goal, I think it's time to start making a push toward the television markets. We've all seen stories on the local news about wacky people doing wacky stuff, and there ain't much wackier than this little shindig. We can use this information to contact our local TV stations and suggest they run a story about GJTB and tweet the fact that we're doing this to/through them.

To that end, I've created a spreadsheet of twitter and email contacts for the major TV stations in the top 25 TV markets in the US.

A couple of caveats:

1. I had a hard drive crash last night on my desktop PC. I lost the spreadsheet and had to start over for almost nothing. Thankfully, I had the basic framework saved onto the GJTBdocs account.

2. As a result of #1 above, out of the 170+ TV stations listed, only roughly 75 of them are complete with both email addresses and Twitter handles.

3. ALL of the 170+ TV stations on the list have Twitter handles listed.

4. For some reason, the info for St. Louis is missing. Sorry, Missourians and souther Illinoisans.

5. There are Spanish language stations on the list. Yo no hablo Español. So, if a Spanish-speaking Farker wants to hit up the Univision & Telemundo stations, please do.

6. I'm not working today, so I'll be able to devote the time necessary to complete the list, hopefully by Noon-ish PDT.

Here's the link to the file:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Aky9m2FWZY2qdDFOVTBfNE1 j b jAtTlVtMi1zTlZkdFE.

If you live in East Buttseks, Arkansas or Booger Holler, West Virginia, your station is not listed. Please send and email and/or a tweet to the station closest to you.

Also, if you find information in the spreadsheet that is incorrect, please email corrections to GJTBdocs at the gmail. I'll update the spreadsheet.

Here's the list of markets:

New York
Los Angeles
Chicago
San Francisco
Dallas-Ft. Worth
Houston-Galveston
Washington, DC
Philadelphia
Atlanta
Boston
Miami-Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood
Detroit
Seattle-Tacoma
Phoenix
Puerto Rico
Minneapolis-St. Paul
San Diego
Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater
Denver-Boulder
Baltimore
St. Louis
Portland, OR
Charlotte-Gastonia-Rock Hill
Pittsburgh, PA
Sacramento

So, if anyone has ideas, suggestions, thoughts, pros/cons, etc., please post them

Thanks for all the good work you've been doing. You're making a difference in this world and all of you kick major ass.

Good morning!

I wish I could spend more time at this. The science stuff by necessity has sucked up most of my attention this week.

So I throw money at it.

Coeyagi, I tossed 50 at GJTB last night for the debate deal we made. I don't know if it's match-able, but it felt about right.

rynthetyn's suggestion for tweets on Friday: Friday is Spirit Day, if we include the #spiritday hashtag and mention of GLAAD in our Friday tweets we may be able to pick up more donations that way.

I"ve been tweeting, but I don't know how to do large scale super duper bombing strafing tweeting.

I don't know what a John Ashton is, but I'm really excited to buy it a beer!

Past the halfway point. This is just amazing. I'd like to say that it's all downhill from here, but that'd be a lie. MustangFive has it right that we need to start pushing into the major TV markets to get attention. We're not just some ridiculous little internet pipe dream, you and I are making this happen.

I can almost smell the Sharpie on that cold, crisp morning when Uncle Joe signs the hood. i can feel the pop and flash of the cameras and the rumble of wild cheers as the Bird pulls onto Pennsylvania Ave. I don't know about you. But I can almost taste it. And Washington still tastes like grime and pigeon poo, but nonetheless....

I am going to keep my focus on Twitterbombing today, but I I also want to claim the Atlanta market to contact. I know a guy who knows a guy, just like we all do, so I'll see what I can do there.

I posted this in the Thursday thread

FinFangFark: Wow, another $1k donor.

(stands up and claps)

One week in and already over halfway to the goal? Mother of god, indeed.


I continue to be stunned that you Fark Retards (tm) think my stupid idea has any merit. I love you all (well, except you)

Give me your twitter handle. I'll start following you. People who follow me will most definitely get retweeted.

Can someone post a link (or just copy pasta) the press release? I'm hitting up the Atlanta news markets right now.
