Let's try to get a shout out from Charlie on Oscar night
With the Oscars upon us, and with Charlie K having a better shot at winning one of those than he did a Golden Globe, BeingCharlieKaufman.com has kicked off a campaign called You Say Potato 2005. What's that? In a nutshell: we're trying to get a shout out from Charlie on Oscar night. A mention of the site, the web community - his fans, meaning YOU - anything.
"Awesome. I'm sure he'll go for it. What can I do to help?" Charlie ain't gonna give a shout-out unless he knows that we want him to. So to increase the chances of this idea reaching Charlie, feel free to create website logos, buttons and banners, and plaster them on other sites, blogs or message boards, with a link back to this page: http://www.beingcharliekaufman.com/potato.htm (Go visit it for the full explanation of what this is all about and where the potato comes into it.) If you see Charlie Kaufman on the street, or you sit next to him on a bus, please corner him and politely explain the idea in a calm, thoughtful, non-stalkerish manner. Maybe it would help if you are also dressed as a potato, just for a visual aid. I'm sure he'll dig it. I should've thought of this idea months ago. We could've taken out full-page ads in Variety.
