rexray:
In case you don't know, I help run a micro-cinema in south Seattle called Rung Theater. We're a bit different from other theaters in that we pretty much show whatever crazy stuff we want and invite the people like YOU to come. It's totally underground and totally FUN!

Tonight we're starting our Red Dwarf marathon, showing the very first episode all the way to the very last (when the show was ultimately cancelled). We show 4 episodes each Saturday night starting at 9:00pm (door at 8) until we're all out of episodes. If you're a RED DWARF fan, then you will not want to miss this!!





Price: $5 (donation - pay what you can)
Location: 1136 S. Albro Place
Time: show starts at 9pm
Notes: Full concessions available

Rung Theater is a 70-seat plush video-based cinema in the heart of Georgetown. We're located in the top floor of a manufacturing facility which has a huge "RUNG" sign. Thus the name. Check out our website for photos and information.

Of course you do.

But what you might not know is that some Seattleites started a demand on eventful.com to try and get Wil Wheaton to come out for it. If you're a fan of Wil's acting, writing, or his blog, please go and join the demand today!

Don't forget that tomorrow is FREE COMIC BOOK DAY!!! Click to find your closest participating shop!

So far the only shop I know of that's doing anything *special* for Free Comic Book Day is Comic Book Ink in Tacoma with a costume contest, door prizes, passes to a free screening of X3, and Stormtroopers-a-plenty! But if by chance you can't make it down to Tacoma (like me *sob*), your local comic shop will also most likely be having all sorts of deals and specials going on all day long.

So stop by a comic book store! Get a free comic book or two, no strings attatched! Have plentiful litterature to keep near The Crapper in case of emergencies!

CRIPES! No time between calls tonight to update my Journal! And I really need to get some of this down on LJ before I forget about it. So here's a few of my own personal highlights from this year's Emerald City Comic Con.

-Getting as many guests as possible to sign my 2-month-old daughters Baby Book. It was Molly's first convention and every creator was eager to jot down a few words of wisdom, plus lil' sketches!

-Meeting Adam Hughes and his wife, quite possibly the nicest professionals I've ever met at a convention! Real down-to-earth folks who always have something nice to say as long as you're not pestering them every moment!

-Hidden Quarter Bins that magically turned in to "10-for-a-dollar" bins on Sunday! A huge lot of late-80's EC Comics Reprints for a dime each, as they were originally intended to be purchased!

-The Mystery of The Costume Contest. I saw about 50 people in Costume, yet only 10 entrants in to this competition. Where did all the others go? There was a fella in a kick-butt Punisher costume (movie version) that could have walked away with top honors!

-I stood in line for 15 minutes to appologize to Rob Liefeld. I had spent so many years being Anti-Rob, but then I picked up a bunch of Youngblood from a quarter bin and actually liked it! Could I have been wrong about him all this time? Was I allowing my prejudice to taint my view of his work? And so I appologized, and he was an Ass about it. So now I'm back to hating him. Good to have a reaffirmation of my justified hatred!

-Slave Labor Graphics comic grab-bags 5 comics for a buck! My 13-year-old niece went NUTS! Thank you Slave Labor for giving my niece a new obsession, and for giving her Mother a good reason to forbid her from going to any more comic book conventions with me!

-So sorry about the CBLDF Sketch-Off, or as it SHOULD have been called "Sketches of Chuck Norris with your favorite Comic Book Characters for $75 a pop". Yes, the sketch requests being tossed out were a bit of a sausage-fest. Yes, most of the art should have gone for much more than $75 each. And yes, I feel guilty for not having rushed out to the cash machine so I could own Chuck Norris Vs. Galactus.

captain_slinky:
THE EMERALD CITY COMIC CON IS THIS WEEKEND!!! SATURDAY THE 1ST AND SUNDAY THE 2ND!!!!

Besides the piles and piles of free swag they hand out why should you, the average non-comics fan want to go?

Captain Crais and Chiana (Lani Tupu and Gigi Edgely) from the fan-favorite Sci-Fi hit Farscape will be there!

You can meet James O'Barr the guy who Created The Crow way back before every semi-goth concept looked exactly like it!

The guy from the old Levi 501 Button Fly commercial will be there! You remember the series of Levi commercials Spike Lee did back in the day? The "What do you do in your 501's" commercials? Rob Liefeld was the comic book artist in that commercial!

COSTUME CONTEST!!! Is there anything better than watching people in Spandex parade about for your amusement?

Meet Gabe and Tyco of Peny Arcade fame and hear them speak on the topic of Web Cartooning!

And of course there's always tons of great stuff to see and do at the convention. Ongoing tournaments of Magic: The Gathering, Mechwarrior, Hero Clix</b> and Vs. spread out with fabulous prizes to be won!

Don't miss out! Of all the conventions to choose as being "The One" that you go to just so you can tell everybody you've at least BEEN to a convention? <a href="http://www.emeraldcitycomiccon.com</b> is the biggest and least threatening one you could ever choose to go to. See you there!

THE EMERALD CITY COMIC CON IS THIS SATURDAY AND SUNDAY, APRIL 1ST AND 2ND!!!

Saturday is obviously the day of choice if you're only going to go for one day, seeing as how that's the day with the big Costume Contest. Fabulous prizes await those foolhardy enough to show their true Geekosity!

Sunday is the day to go if you want to clean up and get the best deals, because The Dealers don't wanna have to pack it all up and take it all home. Get that great piece of 80's nostalgia you've been needing for your desk!

Be prepared for a rather Gothcentric convention this year, as the guests include fantasy artist Brom, James O'Barr ("The Crow") and Roman Dirge ("Lenore")! And there's plenty of standard Comic Nerdiness to go around as both Erik Larsen AND Rob Liefeld will be in attendance! Maybe this will be the convention where the gloves come off and the punches start flying between these two! Oh, and of course there's about a gazillion other hot artists and writers comijng such as Adam Hughes, Steve Niles, Tim Sale, Kurt Busiek, Gail Simone... too many to list in one posting! Just go and check out the site if you're curious!

(cross-posting a few places, and you'll only get one more warning before the show. I promise!

THE END IS NEAR!

 

Dr. Strangelove

Or:  How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb

 

Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame’s

Critic’s Choice” Best of Sci Fi” Film Series:  ‘Science Fiction and Society’

 

When:             Sunday, February 19, 4pm

Where:            JBL Theatre at EMP, 325 5th Ave. N.

                       At Seattle Center (Fifth & Harrison entrance)

Tickets:           $6 General; $5 SFM/SIFF Members

                       Advance Tickets Available at Box Office 206.770-2702

Our Host:        The Seattle Weekly’s Tim Appelo will introduce the film

 

One of the things that science fiction film does well is explore our fears about technology gone haywire, and the 1964 film, Dr. Strangelove, is a classic example of this. Producer/director Stanley Kubrick's brilliant, satirical, provocative black comedy/fantasy regarding doomsday and Cold War politics features an inadvertent, pre-emptive nuclear attack. Kubrick began making a serious movie about the End of the World As We Know It (in a nuclear war), but halfway through, he realized the absurdity behind MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction) and the entire Cold War scenario, and decided instead to make a black comedy.

The film was Oscar®-nominated for Best Picture, won the BAFTA Award for best British film, and remains number 26 on the Top 100 Films of All Time. Peter Sellers, who plays three roles in this film, was also nominated for Best Actor.

 

Added Bonus: Be there on Sunday when we do an audience drawing for preview passes to the hot Russian film, “Night Watch.”

Doing pre-production research for a possible costume documentary in the spring.

Who might be some good individuals to talk to? Do you know anyone who might make a good subject?

Re-posted from seattle

My bf moved up here from CA where he had an active table top (specifically L5R, as I understand it, but any will do) roleplaying group of friends. Sadly, none of those friends moved up here with him, and I'm not much use in that dept. So, are there any friendly groups near Bothell (northend type area in general) that would welcome a fellow table-top roleplaying, video game playing, anime loving, funny guy into their midst?

He's got some online D&D game going on, but I know he wants REAL people to play with, so that's why I'm asking here.

Also (in case anything's opening up since I asked last year) are there any decent arcades around? We've been to Game Works and it wasn't really fighting-game oriented (street fighter especially, soul calibur, tekken, etc) so it's not worth the drive and the money to head down there. We used to hit Lanwerx in Bellevue, but they apparently shut down :/

Thanks :)

Current Mood: excitedexcited
We've had some questions about what kind of special gaming event we're hosting at our annual game convention this fall. We have a fair bit of work still ahead of us, but we have enough done that I can give a bit of a teaser.

We're launching a new storyline at Con-Fusion. The initial games are taking place on the continent of Olliria (a new setting we created for the story), set in the Great River. This will be part of an on-going campaign in the Great River, and the web site will be up soon.

This is a fantasy RPG using the d20 system. Character creation guidelines are in the works, and due to the nature of the River (which is a transitive plane) we will be allowing a certain amount of importing of existing characters from other games.

Please join us at the University of Victoria on October 21-23 when everything gets started. We would like to encourage other gamemasters to run Great River stories, and we'd be happy to help you get acquainted with the theory behind shared campaigns and how you can mesh smoothly with the rest of us.

The Great River is based on Portals & Planes, written by Mike Mearls and published by Fantasy Flight Games. Content is used under the Open Gaming License.

Gothic Court Ball

In the land of Cascadia where the Mystery is celebrated with the Ball those who have dreamed of a surrealistic
fantasy fading into a single night of dance and revelry will gather. Music and visuals heighten your senses as the night shields the true Court and the chambers surrounding it. Dance and dream amongst the darker edges of the fantasy
realms.

Music and laughter float in the air, inviting guests to follow. Ancient tapestries line the walls, glowing richly in the dim light. Men and women in ornate, outlandish regalia glide through large doors, their silks and satins glow in the warm candlelight. Their faces are hidden some in traditional or fanciful masks for the ball and others hidden in plain sight.
We ask only that you be clothed in your most elegant finery, and masked so that your souls, and loyalties, are hidden. We will present such beauty and grace marred by the grotesque that even the creatures of the unknown will shake and hide. For in this night of decadence, we shall outdo the dark spirits themselves!

Grand Unmasking to take place at the stroke of midnight, but the dancing and revelry will continue on.

You won’t be turned away for wearing your basic black, but you'll be missing out on one of the most exciting elements of the event. This is your opportunity to pull out your finery, dress to the nines, get dolled up, and enjoy a gothic fantasy waltz. This is a high fashion affair. Gothic & Fetish attire are encouraged! If you are a Gothic Lolita this is the event
for you.

When you arrive at the event you will be given a 3x5 card where
you will be able to write your name and title to present to the Major Domo who
will then announce you and your partner/ guest. There will be award ribbons for
the ‘most elaborate’, ‘most phantasmagorical’, ‘best vampirical’, and ‘best
dressed high society people’.

Come one! Come all! To the social event of
THE season!

If you didn't go to the Star Trek Convention in Bellevue today, good for you. It was AWFUL. Worst convention of any kind I've EVER been to! I'd have to say that less than 100 people showed up. Made for a nice intimate setting for the hour with Brent Spiner, but other than that? Bleagh. I was so embarrassed because this was my wife's VERY FIRST Trek Convention, and now her vision of such events will forever be tainted with memories of this CRAP.

About this Entry
irrationalrobot:
Starting tomorrow evening, the sci-fi channel is going to be jazzing up their Friday night lineup in pretty dramatic ways, and I think the geek community in Seattle is strong enough to sustain a weekly viewing party...

Some of the detailsCollapse )

Updates to this (places I've talked to) will be added to comments of this post. Special thanks to captain_slinky for pointing out this community to me. :D

Okay, here's the deal. Some jerkoff moved, and left his cat behind to fend for herself at our apartment complex.


 

Probably an inappropriate postCollapse )

Almost that time of year... I reserved my copy of "Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince" at the Pacific Place Barnes & Noble. Anyone else going to be there (July 16) at the midnight release party?

May. 7th, 2005 @ 10:18 am FREE COMIC BOOK DAY!!!
About this Entry
Happy!
captain_slinky:
Don't forget to go get your free comic books today! No purchase neccessary! Check out the site at www.freecomicbookday.com for full details!

Too many shops in the greater Seattle to list here. Just go to the site and type your zip-code in to the Comic Shop Locator for your closest participating store! If you're in the North, then I suggest The Comic Stop in Lynnwood (next to the Alderwood Mall). They've got several local artists and writers showing up to do signings and whatnot.

Take this opportunity to see my people as we make our yearly trek "Beyond The Basement"! See us interact and cringe under the unrelenting gaze of the brite-hurty Day Star!
