Yeah, I hadn't found the vote site but I saw the simpsonized avatar you made on your blog.
I just realized it was the last day of the voting so I needed to scramble!

Hmm, I'll have to do that when I have some spare time.  I only have 10 minutes before the library closes for the day.

Vermont?  That's just sad.

The only way that Springfield, Vermont could make it up to me is if they actually have a Nuclear Power Plant and a town called Fort Brag nearby. That would make it more like the cartoon than ours is. *EDIT* Nope! turns out Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Station is about 45 miles south! Bastards!

As much as I hate to lose I'm just glad Illinois didn't get it. Illinois had a movie already, CHICAGO!

Oh yeah, and I don't know if any of you saw or heard about this, but 7-Eleven, in a promotion of The Simpsons film, has converted several of its stores to real Kwik-E-Marts. With real Simpsons products and everything. An awesome idea.....but as Oregonians, we must like to get the shaft, cause one would have to go to Seattle to visit one of these wonderful sights.....or California. *grumblegrumble* Ah well.....*sniffle*

You can check it out here: http://www.7-eleven.com/kem.asp

Illinois I expected to be our top rival... but... VERMONT...? WTF??

Now I'm more perplexed than irritated. I really do wonder where these votes came from. Did you know that Vermont got more votes than its actual population?

I have yet to hear any real explanation, except that they had a huge television, web, and email forward campaign. Their video hardly counts, because it was pretty stupid in my opinion, just like most of them (even ours was a bit hokey). I'm guessing a lot of people liked the idea of voting for the underdog, but that still doesn't explain it. In any case, if annoying email forwards are what it takes, I'm fine with the fact that we didn't win it.

However, I agree with Tom: if we weren't gonna win it anyway, I'm just glad Illinois didn't get it. I KNOW they placed second purely because of population. But it is pretty ridiculous that the movie is going to premiere in a 100-seat theater. Only a tiny fraction of Vermont Springfield's population is going to get to see it on opening night; the rest only get to stand outside and scream at celebrities for 15 minutes before the show and 15 minutes after it. That's how it was when Eugene got the premiere of Without Limits (another Prefontaine movie).

It has to be a bunch of stupid people being smart asses around the country who thought that they were being funny, or something stupid like that.  Who would seriously want a big movie premiere in a town that doesn't even have 10,000 people in it?  Washougal is bigger than that, and we'd make a lousy site for a major movie premiere!

I'm not a big fan of vermont, I drove through there and it was kinda lame, just a bunch of back water looking streets, I hear that it is crazy expensive to live there though.
