Thanks for the love on this, Hamlet! Second Life is rising up the request charts but still needs more. If you're reading this and on the edge, do it, do it, it takes 10 seconds, request it here! I've also created an inworld group called "Four Eyed Monsters" (member title "Four Eyed Avatar") if anyone wants to join, stay updated on progress, and give input on how we'll do the screening (providing enough people request one!).

Note: because it's not a terrestrial location we've been told that the best way to request the film is to enter "2nd Life" (no quotes) in the zip code box and choose "2nd Life" from the dropdown country menu. I think some of the SL requests are taking longer to show up on the tracker because people have used slightly different language and the very small FEM team is trying to keep up with and categorize everything properly. Right now we have 81 confirmed requests, putting SL between Phoenix (80) and Orlando (89). Let's see if we can beat top-ranking LA at 420 :). (The requests take a day or so to show up on the map so don't worry if you don't see yours right away.)

BTW, here's FEM co-creator Arin Crumley's original comment on my blog. I met up with him and Susan in person and they're both really cool and excited about this:

"So yes, if that number gets to 150, we’ll honor the promise to book the screening, and hopefully we can pack the virtual house for the screening and show up for a virtual q&a and [throw a] swanky virtual party afterwards, maybe even book a few thursdays in a row if attendance is good."

BTW here's a direct link to the Four Eyed Monsters trailer.
