i think i can
Hey everyone,

Comic-Con starts tomorrow night. I'm really grateful to all the volunteers who are working so hard to make this campaign happen. I'm easily overwhelmed and not very organized, but thanks to the efforts of my friends and friends-to-be (SDCC street team, whoo :) things are shaping up nicely.

Right now we have:
- 13 volunteers
- 10,000 fliers
- fifteen hundred pins
- 3 Zazzle shirts
- fifteen shirts of our own layout (using Lori's excellent racebending.com artwork :)
- enough petition sheets for 1200 signatures (with more printing tonight!)
- 13 informational binders
- 1 official Racebending Sketchbook

Our MISSION: by close of convention Sunday, get rid of every last bit of Racebending promotional material we have. :)

Some photos (including pics of us in case you're going and want to try to find us):




(Dariane put the shirt design together, based off Lori's amazing original art)






To those of you who won't be going: we know you'll be there in spirit! And we know you'll keep fighting wherever you may be.

We'll try to keep you posted but things are probably going to get crazy. :) You can follow me on twitter if you'd like: @mike_le and @dariane

Though be warned we won't just tweet about Racebending stuff. ;)

Bye all! Wish us luck!

This is made of so much WIN. Good luck!

You probably knew this, but F'M will be there (with Hayao Miyazaki) for Ponyo.

...I'm not saying you should do anything based on that information, just putting the information out there.

I'm following you guys on twitter... so exciting! XD
22nd-Jul-2009 03:21 am (UTC)
Mad love to you all.

Do you guys mind if I upload those pictures to http://aang-aint-white-plz.deviantart.com? All credits and links-back will be included, for sure =)
22nd-Jul-2009 03:24 am (UTC)
Sure! :)

If you want to see all the stuff in the binder, I have it in PowerPoint and can e-mail it to you.
22nd-Jul-2009 04:04 am (UTC)
Can I haz a copy?
22nd-Jul-2009 04:10 am (UTC)
Absolutely. E-mail me at whosdamike at gmail and I'll reply with the ppt file. :)
30th-Jul-2009 06:09 pm (UTC)
Ooh, can I see the stuff in the binder too? I want to show my friends and my sister and cousins...they're not into Avatar, but I'm sure they'd be upset about this too...
22nd-Jul-2009 03:31 am (UTC)
This looks fantastic you guys. Too bad I can't be at Comic Con because I'd love to get some of those pins and a t-shirt or two.
22nd-Jul-2009 03:40 am (UTC)
Awesome! Best of luck!

Well...no offence to the amazing people working in my neck of the woods but...San Diago Racebending Team just kicked NYC Racebending Team's ass. Mainly due to my funds and that many members are not located here.

I was wondering if I could get compies and/or shipments of those buttons. I can manufacture up here. Once again, boycott@racebending.com

Go kick ass. Just remember to take tons of photos and videos. Expecially videos. We can put those on YouTube, you can send me them and I can edit them together.

Good luck and...I'm going to need a bigger boat! @,@;

(I just hope we at least inspired this kick assness!)
22nd-Jul-2009 04:11 am (UTC)
Have you started trying to hit up NY universities? That could be a good place to look for support...
22nd-Jul-2009 04:14 am (UTC)
Not yet. I have very little time before the Film Festival and I'm going to do a scaled down (IMO better) plan at the AAIFF. However, after the event, I can start doing that.

I think that even if we are not as spectacular as you guys and gals, that this is going to be a great intro media blitz. First you guys will hit and shortly after we will. It should work out great, then all we need to do is to keep our name in the media going!
22nd-Jul-2009 04:16 am (UTC)
Pshaw, the Seattle Racebending Team won't be starting until late September. *grumbles a little*
22nd-Jul-2009 03:53 am (UTC)
I hope I'll be able to find you guys at the con! I'll be cosplaying as Suki, but I'll proudly wear one of those buttons around. :D
22nd-Jul-2009 04:10 am (UTC)
Please e-mail me with your contact info! Maybe we can arrange to meet. Will you be at the cosplay meetup Saturday at noon?

E-mail me! whosdamike at gmail
22nd-Jul-2009 04:19 am (UTC)
Yep, I'll be at the meet-up! :) If that's where you're going, I'll be sure to walk up to you.
22nd-Jul-2009 04:23 am (UTC)
P.S. Do you two have any modeling background? Because you two look great in those shirts, that I want you to model any future shirts we make! XD
22nd-Jul-2009 06:40 am (UTC)
Ha ha... actually, my girlfriend did a CA pageant when she was in high school. :) And she tells me how to stand, heh.
22nd-Jul-2009 04:53 am (UTC)
Everything looks great! Good luck you guys! :D
22nd-Jul-2009 05:14 am (UTC)
Good job!
22nd-Jul-2009 05:44 am (UTC)
This is FAB.

Oh God, I love that shirt!
22nd-Jul-2009 06:45 am (UTC)
Thanks! :)

Art by Lori, layout by Dariane, "Let's make the logo and text GINORMOUS" idea by Mike.

I'm especially proud of the "make the logo ginormous" part. ;)

If there's enough interest we might put 'em up for sale... I kinda put a lot of cash into the campaign out-of-pocket and I'd like to recoup a little.
22nd-Jul-2009 07:30 am (UTC)
Can't wait to meet you Mike

22nd-Jul-2009 02:29 pm (UTC)
I certainly looks like you guys are prepared, so here's wishing you good luck!
22nd-Jul-2009 04:08 pm (UTC)
Wow, you guys are amazing! Best of luck to you all! :D
22nd-Jul-2009 04:46 pm (UTC)
You. Are. Amaaazing! Please be sure to take lots of pictures and video, and let us know how it goes. This is incredible. Good luck!!
22nd-Jul-2009 04:57 pm (UTC)
I'm drooling right now, the stuff looks SO. FANTASTIC. Our racebending twitter will be following yours, yay! HAVE FUN!
22nd-Jul-2009 08:06 pm (UTC)
Our stuff only looks as good as the original art! :D

As you can tell we're MASSIVE FANS of the brown monk image. It's so perfect, it's recognizable, and we're hoping to plaster Comic-Con with it. We'll see how it goes!
22nd-Jul-2009 05:01 pm (UTC) - My shirt::
The yellow shirts look nice; they really jump out: like a yield sign! And free buttons?! Woo-Hoo, very excited!

Check out the shirt I'll be wearing to Comic-Con: http://mrcab666.livejournal.com/1368.html

Was anyone there on Wednesday(preview night)? I didn't see anyone. I checked every person I saw with a yellow shirt too.

Hopefully I'll see you guys tomorrow.

Hey, I'm going! I won't be there for long, but I'd like to volunteer to wear a button or pass out flyers for a bit. Who do I talk to?
26th-Jul-2009 05:49 pm (UTC)
I love that you used the "creepy Katara" picture. ^-^
