Okay, no more requests for tickets to see the Joss Whedon movie Serenity in Union Square next Wednesday. We've had an overwhelming response. And, honestly, we have about four requests for every ticket at the moment.
TPM has been up and running for just about five years. And over that time I've gotten very good and understanding and predicting the ebb and flow of traffic, what sort of response we'll get when we have contests or raise funds. But I didn't have much to go on in trying to figure out what the demand would be for tickets to a movie screening in one geographically confined, if also densely populated, area. By the time I plugged back in this afternoon we had about 800 requests for about 200 tickets.
Obviously we won't be able to provide seats for everyone who requested one. But I understand that it'll be very helpful to find out sooner than later whether you got a ticket, to be able to plan and so forth. So I am going to make every effort to make sure everybody hears back from us no later than noon tomorrow. If you requested tickets and haven't heard from us by then, check the site and we'll have some update.
The movie looks like a lot of fun. And I look forward to seeing a lot of you on Wednesday night.
Unrelated to this particular movie event, we have plans for more TPM events in the New York area in the near future. So for those of you who would like to meet fellow readers, we have more fun stuff coming up.
