Subject: PostCrypt/FK fonts

Hi everyone!

Some people talked about FK fonts. To my knowledge, there is no such
thing, as it is not a real font, much more like a drawing. I would also
be interested in having one if it does exist though. As for the PostCrypt
font, I personnaly have it, in True Type format. I don't know why people
talked about it, because it doen't even look close to FK's design.  It's
more like a melting-blood-like type font. Anyway, if anyone wants it, I
wouldn't mind sending it to you. (I don't remember where I got it, I
hope it's not illegal to copy it. I think it's from TypeCase...
Who care?! :) )

See y'all!

Hi Again!

Could someone please e me that phone list again?  Mine has gone on to that
void that is my mailbox.....  This way I can make my phone calls next week
and get this story :)

And, a Tri-Star release on video..."Legend of the Falls".  Mr. Bennett is
suppose to be in there somewhere too.  Honest.  It says so in the credits.

I\ve noticed this, too. And I've mentioned it in my letters to TPTB,
to emphasize that this is not (just) an organized group,  that these are
people I've met in the most unexpected, casual way. I also usually
mention that rather that a shirt, it's the lovely hat I won in Sony's
Haolloween Trivia Contest...they gave it to me; they have to hear
about it! (I expect someone to come to my door asking for it back any
minute now!!)

Subject: NATPE campaign & bag fund totals, 1/13/95 AM

Sorry I didn't get this out last night, but I was up against deadline on flyer
text. I've had a fair number of queries hit my box on this, so here's a quick

The total pledges to the NATPE bag fund, as of 8:30 am CST, are:


If you haven't contributed yet, we're asking $10 (more, if you can manage it).
Make out the check to Laurie Cohen Fenster, and mail it ASAP to:

P.O. Box 00000
Xxxxxxxxxx, XX  00000-0000

*Then* *private* e-mail me with the amount of your donation *and* your FULL
name. (Otherwise, how will we know which Lisa/Dian(n)e/Susan/Laurie/Lynn/
Sharon/Jill etc. to mark off the list when your check arrives? <g>)

Remember, we have to pay $3300 for the bags when we take delivery on 1/18,
*and* we have to pay second-day express shipping (they weigh 350 lb and will
be in 10 boxes) to Las Vegas on them, too!

We, your NATPE Strike Force, *need* these bags when we go to Las Vegas on 1/24
to hand out to the people we're trying to get to ASK for FK at the Tri-Star
booth.  And we need *you* to prime your local station to go to NATPE already
*planning* on asking for FK.  This is VITAL if our strategy is going to work!

And don't forget to tell Karen Tobin (ktobin@t.......) when you've
written/called your local syndie station *and include the city and call
letters*.  We need to know this, in case we have time to do a little 'Hello, I
understand you know a friend of mine?' sort of contacting.

PLEASE call/write (both is good!) your local syndie station!  Send 'em
presents on Syndie Appreciation Day!  (I'm taking up a collection among my FK
friends at work to send the program manager a bouquet of flowers.)  And tell

And we're going to be quoting PAF drive and Blood Drive totals, too, so don't
forget to Give Blood! <g>

OK, I'm finally done now. Anybody still reading?  :)

Subject: Finally got off my b***

Hi, guys

Wednesday, I took the press releases to our local paper here in Morgantown,
WV.  On Thursday, I took the Appreciation Week information out to them.  I
also braved the snow/ice covered sidewalk to WVU's Daily Athenaeum and gave
them to their city editor.  He said he would see that the entertainment
editor would get them.  Yesterday, Friday, I called WBOY-TV.  Unfortunately,
there program director did not go in (snow you know).  But their
receptionist, Shelly, is an avid fan of the show and she said that they have
been receiving a lot of calls.  I mentioned to her about "finding" the press
releases and Appreciation Week information on the Net, etc.  SHE asked me to
fax them to her.  I am hoping she is working today or that the program
director is in as Shelly mentioned that the person they get their
Syndication Package from had told them she would have some information for
them.  Keep your fingers crossed for good news.

Today, I am headed for our local mall.  Their is an air brush store there.
I talked to the owner yesterday about a sweatshirt.  I am taking one of my
shirts to him so he can see the font I want.  I am going to "borrow" one of
the sig lines that several people have been using.  "Save Forever Knight
Ask Me How" and am going to wear it everyday next week.  I am also
(hopefully) going to the Holiday Inn, in Martinsburg, WV, next weekend to a
(get this) VFW conference.  I am going to wear the sweatshirt there too.

Got to go.  Got to get to the mall.

Subject: FK voodoo

Anybody in New Orleans want to try what I've done twice now on trips
to New Orleans? Go into the Voodoo Museum in the French Quarter, which
is an interesting place in its own right, and leave a small offering --
a quarter will do -- on the altar of that Brazilian spirit whose name
I can't remember but who is supposed to be rather childlike and playful.
He sounded as though he might enjoy interfering in favor of a tv show.

All I know is, I've done it twice now when we needed a new season and
we did get it.

And I'm only half kidding now.

Subject: Local Channel Contact! :-)
Sender: maeve

Hi all --

        Just wanted you to hear some good news and some OK news -- I finally
got in touch with Joanna Bellinger, program manager at WBRC Channel 6, our
local station today. As I've said before, they signed up for FK at the very
beginning, and have been consistant in giving it a great time slot and
promoting it well. When I spoke to Joanna today, she already knew about the
whole situation and is, if it's possible, even more hepped up than we are!
She said that FK is the best syndicated show they have, and that it is her
NUMBER ONE priority to get on the schedule for next season!
 ~~~~~~ ~~~
        She's already been putting some pressure on her local Tri-Star rep --
out of Atlanta. As of last weekend, when she asked for the fourth season, he
said that that decision "hadn't been made yet", but he DID indicate that it
was NOT a firm "no" and they were still thinking about it .... She says she
has already instructed her rep to Las Vegas (NAPTE) to "pursue this
agressively" with the Tri-Star folks and to make sure that they know how
well it is doing here and how much they want it!

        Way to go, WBRC! And let's hear it for Joanna!! (Now I'm REALLY glad
I sent her those cookies!!)

        She said she would call me as soon as she had any news on this and
let me know(!). And you know I'll let YOU guys know that same day ....

Up the third -- on to the FOURTH!!

Subject: Flyers and stuff
Sender: maeve

        I managed to get some stuff out today and tomorrow. (Please forward
this to the appropriate person; I can't find that file!)

        I've made up 2 flyers with the logo, one with a sentence about the
premise and a couple of paragraphs about the show's history, finishing with
the current Tri-Star unwillingness for the 4th season, to write Tri-Star and
to call WBRC, with addresses and phone #s. Second was for SF/FK fans
specifically, with the logo and "SAVE FOREVER KNIGHT", of the "what's the
problem, why should you care, what can you do" variety.

        Then had 3 fact sheets, one with SONY, Tri-Star addresses and execs
and phone #s with suggestions for writing and the polite Japanese phrases, a
second with all the websites and e-mail addresses I've pulled out of your
posts, and the third with all the sponsor execs, addresses, and phone #s.

        One friend is copying them tonite and will distibute them at a big
meeting of his SF club tomorrow, and get them all up and running, spreading
them around bbs, stores, and friends (who will then copy them and spread --
you know how it goes). A second friend will do very much the same thing for
another group tomorrow night.  So -- the Birmingham scene should be pretty
well covered within the next couple of days!

Whew! And just look at all YOU guys are doing .......

Have hope -- we're already winners. Now we just need to see how much farther
we can go!
