Meet and Greet members of the Iraq Veterans Against The War (IVAW) Bus Tour on Thursday, Sept 4th in RB
Sorry if this is a duplicate, but I wanted to be sure as many folks hear about this as possible -- would be great to give these Iraq Vets Against the War who are completing their 2007 Summer Base Tour here our thanks for their service, especially to the troops who still remain in harm's way. They are doing outreach up at Camp Pendleton during this last stop.
Pls plan to join me on Thursday evening in Rancho Bernardo -- see details following. Martha

Subject: Looking for a Big-A#% Black SUV for the Worst Prez video shoot ...
Date: August 31,[masked]:15:01 PM PDT
To: Undisclosed recipients: ;
We need the use of a big, black SUV (like we see in Presidential motorcades and other federal transport) -- for a scene we expect to be doing for the "Worst Presnadent Ever" music video shoot on the afternoon of Thursday, 9/11. Won't be a "rolling shot," but in a parking lot in the Kearny Mesa area. It needs to be unmarked, no bumperstickers. Could be someone's personal vehicle, or maybe you know someone in the transportation or security biz who has something like this.
If you can help us get hold of one that afternoon, it would be a big help. Please let me know ASAP.
Extras+ needed for Worst Prez music video ...
Hi everybody. I'm writing to tell you about an opportunity to do something really different to commemorate 9/11 this year.
By now, everybody should be aware that Charlie has a song on his CD called "Worst Presnadent Ever", and most of you are probably aware by now that we have been planning to shoot a music video for the song. Well, as coincidence would have it, we're doing principal filming with James Adomian here in San Diego on Sept. 11. (For those not aware, James is the actor who voiced Bush on the song and who impersonates him in movies and on TV.) We're doing a very professional looking video and are currently up to our eyeballs in pre-production work.
Anyway... how can you help? We need extras. We need protestors. We may need extras in other scenes too, but we will definitely need some protestors for a scene or two. Young people, Senior citizens and everyone in between... we can use you.
At this time, we're unsure as to the exact time we'll shoot these scenes, but the schedule will get clearer as we get closer. Suffice to say that anyone appearing in the video will need to be able to commit at least 3 hours, maybe more, maybe not, during the daytime on Thursday, Sept. 11th. We will also be shooting some more scenes on Saturday, Sept. 13th, but the extras required won't necessarily be protestors... although we haven't ruled that out.
Here's what we'd like you to do.
* If you can join us... GREAT! Please write back and let us know which date (9/11, 9/13) you are available and for how much time.
* Attach a photo. Even though Charlie and I may know what everybody looks like, not everybody involved in the production does, so it would be helpful if you could attach a photo that shows an accurate likeness of you and anybody else that wants to be in the video. This goes to the possibility that someone has a certain "look" that the filmmakers may want in a certain scene, possibly playing another part rather than just a protestor.
This should be fun and at least a little exciting. How great would it be to have a nationally popular video poking fun at Bush with a bunch of our friends in it? To be fair, filming anything (a music video, movie, TV show, commercial) can be boring at times, as there can be a lot of down time in setting up a scene. But it shouldn't be that bad as we're scheduling several scenes to be completed in that one day. So punctuality and patience are a real plus. There will be water and munchies on the set. We'll reveal the location to those participating, once it's been secured.
We will also be needing some help with props, makeup, costumes and set dressings. I'll write again soon with a list of anything we may be looking for. If anyone personally knows any professionals in film makeup, set dressings, costumes, props or anything like that, let us know. We'll definitely consider friends of our friends. However, we're lining them up real soon, so write back ASAP with your recommendations. Professionals only, please... unless they are incredibly extraordinary proven amatuers. People in local theater are excellent resources. We can provide promotion on our websites and such in exchange for the loan of materials or use of services.
Finally, we'll need to provide food service for the shoot days -- morning and lunch most likely (coffee, morning munchies, beverages and deli/veggie trays, aftn sweets). We'll be looking for businesses who would like to provide their food specialities in support of this video, and also in exchange for promotion on our websites and such.
Speaking of which, if you'd like a reminder of the song's lyrics, music and voices, see: www.WorstPrez.com.
Thanks for any help you can provide. We look forward to putting out a funny video that people around the country will want to share with their friends via e-mail, directing them to You Tube and our websites for viewing. Let's send Bush out of office with a boot to the rear end and get people fired up for change! But first, let's shoot this video.
