Have you heard of the Chase Community Giving campaign? Chase is giving away $5 million. They are giving one charity $1 million grants and 5 charities will receive $100,000 each. All you have to do is become a fan of their fanpage and vote for your favorite charity to win. You can only vote once per charity. You get 20 votes to distribute at your own discretion. I voted for Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue, which is my all-time favorite charity as that is from where I adopted Boscoe. They are a wonderful 501(3)c nonprofit organization that saves hundreds of dachshund and dachshund mixes every year. I also voted for Bill Buchanan's James Morrison's charity of choice - Foundation Thinkagain. If you have a Facebook account, please, please, PLEASE vote in Chasegiving! It doesn't cost you a thing, but can give the charity of your choice much needed funds. If you are not sure which charities deserve your vote, please consider voting for the two I listed above!Have a favorite charity you'd like me to vote for? Comment with suggestions over at my on my LJ.
Aaron Pierce twitters. Well, not really, but this could be quite amusing: http://twitter.com/Aaron_PierceIt turns out there's a whole RP culture on Twitter too. Jack Bauer has like 25766 accounts. My favorite is JackFacts24 (http://twitter.com/JackFacts24).Beware of season 7 spoilers!
A bit of trivia: In 1980s, back before he was kicking ass on 24, Glenn was in two episodes of this show as a roadside victim ( the show is todays's amazon deal of the dayCollapse )I saw the Amazon GoldBox deal and the first thing I thought of was Aaron. Is that a bit obsessive, or what?
( I'd rather not talk about it!Collapse )Generally, the writing of each episode has been solid and has drastically improved over season 6 and even over some of the other seasons (2 and 3, for example). The overall storyarc has been smoothly transitioning from one storyline into the next without abrupt, sudden turnarounds as is usually the case for 24. Each episode makes me respect the writing staff of the show and makes me hold my breadth till the end of the season, hoping that the following episode will just be as good as this one. So far I haven't been disappointed.

Thought you guys might be interested: A 24 Tribute to Aaron Pierce
Although, it's not the anticipated $15/season sale, 24 is being sold for under $20 bucks a season now: 24 - Season One is $19.9924 - Season Two is now $19.9924 - Season Three is now $19.9924 - Season Four is now $19.9924 - Season Five is now $19.9924 - Season Six is now $19.99Does anyone know of the $15/season sale anywhere else? Maybe with this year's economy, it's just not going to happen? Perhaps it's time I finally got the rerelease of season 1 (I still refuse to spend money on season 6). Mods: If inappropriate, please delete.
Has anyone read Jack Bauer for President: Terrorism and Politics in 24?Is the actual content of the book any good or is it just a great tie-in? I'm tempted to buy it, but I'd like to read a review of it first.
( I wonder if Aaron Pierce will be in it?Collapse )http://community.tvguide.com/blog-entry/TVGuide-News-Blog/Todays-News/24-Returns-Fall/800035012
