It is hard to believe that we are only three weeks into the Occupy Midian Movement. Since the Facebook Group was created it has literally exploded with an outpouring of support from Nightbreed fans. In the past three weeks we have accrued nearly 2500 members, the petition is also nearing 2500 signatures. If you have not signed the petition, please do so, there should be a link on clivebarkercast.com that you can follow.
We have also had the pleasure of having support from many of the people who worked on the film joining the ranks of Occupy Midian, both on Facebook and using the #OccupyMidian hashtag on Twitter. We've had Clive Barker himself tweeting as well as few other famous tweeters such as Neil Gaiman, Nicholas Vince, Simon Bamford, and Steven Niles. On Facebook our group is blessed to be able to count Russell Cherrington and Mark Miller amongst its administrators. Within the Occupy Midian group we are able to count Anne Bobby, Simon Bamford, Hugh Ross, Nick Vince, Robbie Drake, and Jullian Parry amongst our members. For anyone I left out, I sincerely apologize, but it is a task going through nearly 2500 members to seek you out. Let me know who you are and I will be sure you achieve proper credit in our next Occupy Midian Report.
Along with asking fans to sign the petition, there is currently a call on Occupy Midian for fan photos with a sign telling what Nightbreed means to them. We have had some amazing fan photo uploads as well as sign photos from Anne Bobby, Mark Miller, and a very convincing Dr. Decker looking fan.
In addition to all of this, Occupy Midian has had some amazing publicity, there are some great fan videos and Nightbreed testimonials up on Youtube, Fangoria.com has an article up, ProudlyResents.com did a podcast interviewing Russell Cherrington, GeeksofDoom.com has written an article about Occupy Midian as well as: Rue-Morgue.com, Mutantville.com, ShocktilYouDrop.com, and many others. I am trying to keep a running list of all the articles, videos, and podcasts that are done about Occupy Midian on Scoop.it/bring-back-nightbreed as there are so many it would be nearly impossible to go over them all here.
The fans of Nightbreed are many and we are occupying Midian to the extreme. Join the ranks of the Tribes of the Moon, Occupy Midian, and in the words of Clive Barker, "Go Forth & Breed."To listen to the first Occupy Midian Report on the Clive Barker Podcast visit: http://www.clivebarkercast.com/2012/04/22/episode-10-books-of-blood-volume-5-in-the-flesh/
