Torture Cinema Poll for @LonCon3 / Worldcon: You Decide; We Record in a Hotel Room

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!

Torture Cinema Poll for July 2014: You Decide!

I’m late in dropping the Torture Cinema episode from June, but that doesn’t mean you all can’t vote for our end-of-the-month torturefest!  You know the drill.  Voting will end on Monday.

Our CONvergence Schedules: Where We’ll Be and How You Can Join Us!

29 Jun

The entire male crew will be at CONvergence this 4th of July weekend.  Why the guys?  We drew straws.  Or it was entirely random.  Whichever sounds more interesting.

In any case, I’ve taken the liberty to compile a day-by-day schedule of all of our activities, whether as a group OR as individuals.  Some things may be added to this in the near future (walk-by sessions, etc.).  See the official CONvergence schedule for details about these panels (and others).

Note:  we do plan to have Walk-By sessions this year, but we haven’t put them in the schedule yet.  It’s likely they’ll be semi-random due to our bizarre schedules and the various interviews we’ll be conducting.  The best way to get involved in a Walk-By session is to pay attention to our Twitter feed, which is where we’ll announce full details (location, etc.).
