    Convention Beat: November 2011

    Despite planning ahead, illness has made me late again this month. Once again, I am wishing I had an unlimited travel budget, along with no other job or family to tie me down to home. There are a lot of fun things happening! Note: I have tried to include information on a variety of science fiction/fantasy, gaming and generally geeky conventions, but I am not guaranteeing this covers everything. Please feel free to suggest other conventions, for this month or future months in the comments! Hurricane Who November 3-5 Orlando, FL Naoko Mori from Torchwood and Arthur Darvill (Rory) will be at this convention, which seems totally cool for a Dr. Who Convention. Also featured are Jeremy Bulloch, who played Boba Fett in the Star Wars franchise, and Paul Bradford from Ghost Hunters, who seem a bit more tangential to the theme (although Jeremy Bulloch has guested on Dr. Who),

Only when they get there, no one seems to know this is a vacation experience, and everyone is ignoring the crying children sitting in a doorway off to the side. Upon questioning, they reveal that their sister has been taken off to the Dread Tower by the serpentines, who come along and take away anyone who is sick or hurt. If that sounds a lot like a mishmash of three episodes from this past season of Doctor Who to you, I can assure you, you are not

    Supernatural Saturdays

    Although I am totally going to geek out on Doctor Who and talk about what happened on this last episode before the summer break, that’s not actually all I am going to talk about here. First we have to get this out of the way: How come British SF tv is so much more awesome than American SF tv? Personally, I think the problem can be traced to the same idiocy that caused the SciFi channel to change their name to Syfy. If you are trying to appeal to science fiction fans, why would you want to disguise the fact that you are showing science fiction on your channel? Especially since that just enrages SF fans. Of course, it wasn’t like they were really showing much SF by that point anyway, but still. This attempt to straddle the line–keeping the sound of the name while trying to move away from
