Help Stop Uwe Boll

Today I read an article in The Guardian that detailed an exchange between Uwe Boll and FEARnet, which really got my attention. (By the way, I love the fact that The Guardian used the term "revered" to describe him... that was special.)

So, as I was saying, FEARnet did an interview with Uwe Boll and there was a revelation in the last two questions that really piqued my interest.

Are you aware that there is a petition online, signed by 18,000 people, requesting that you stop making movies?

Yeah, I know that. 18,000 is not enough to convince me.

How many would it take?

One million. Now we have a new goal.

Now, at this moment, including my own signature, there are over 115 thousand signatures on this particular petition. The interview was posted on April 4th... which means that in about 4 days, this whole movement has picked up a lot of steam and I have a feeling that one million signatures is well within the realm of possibility.

I never ask people to sign online petitions, but in this case, I am willing to make an exception. Help stop Uwe Boll from committing more crimes against cinema. If Cecil B. Demented can't do it, then it is up to all of us.

We owe this to our children, and our children's children. Hell, we owe it to ourselves as well.

So for me and for pop culture at large, will you sign this petition?

Just Say NO to Uwe Boll!

Signed it last night. I wish I had gotten one of those stickers they give you to wear when you vote in the states that says I voted. The sticker would say something like I Saved Your Eyes From Another Crapy Uwe Boll Flick.

We need fire, and lots of it.

JD: I suddenly have this image of you recreating Corey Feldman's part at the end of Friday the 13th Part IV. Die... Die... Die!

Becca: Well, we could always make them. ;)

Megan: 14%... it is moving forward. Huzzah!

Sinisterdan: Well, we've seen he is impervious to intense flaming, so I think we need to up the ante to something more powerful.

Just made the 146942nd vote.
Onwards to 150 000.

I just signed -stop him...stop him before he does it again!

MC said...

Arjan: That is some great news.

MicGar: Hopefully we make it in time.

I'm sure you know I meant nothing bad by calling you what I did in my post. I like your blog and I'm surprised that I did not find it before. I'll be blogrolling you pronto.

I was on an IRC channel at the time and I changed my name to HollywoodElite after I read your entry... so no worries. Seriously.

If I could take that a little tweak like that in the spirit of fun, well, I'd have no business blogging.

I thought it was funny.
