Fundraiser Madness: Kermit and Yoda at the S&F Actor’s Studio (Plus Thank Yous)

31 Jul

As many of you know, I managed to raise enough funds to attend Worldcon in London.  Part of that effort involved some perks, some of which are yet to be fulfilled.  This post includes two of those perks:  me and Mike Underwood doing impressions while reading works of classic literature or philosophy.

There are two versions:  the video file and the mp3.  The mp3 contains an extended thank you to all the folks who donated to my fundraiser.  Again, THANK YOU.  I’ll say more thank yous later, but I wanted to make sure it got said before Worldcon.

On that note, here are the goodies!

22 Jul

And it came to pass that four of the Skiffy and Fanty crew would be in attendance at the 2014 Worldcon in London.  And the sf/f gods said, “Record Torture Cinema live in a hotel room…”

And we said…YES!

To celebrate being in London (and the World SF Tour), all of the films in the following poll are of British extraction.  Vote wisely!
