=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Society of the Rusting TARDIS Newsletter (#14)

This is going to be a very short newsletter.  Between preparing 96 hours
of video for Anglicon, dealing with Norwescon, etc., I've had very little
time to check out what's happening.  (Kris Sabo's newsletter covers most
everything I've heard in the wind, for those of you receiving that.)

Next, a correction: In the last newsletter, I omitted the trailing
"/" in
the specification of the Rusting Tardis web page.  The correct address is:
(And once I get a faster moden (this week?), I'll be able to check it out

Sound bites:

        Contrary to rumours, the third series of "Absolutely
Fabulous" did
        start on March 30th.  (The first episode is here - I'll start
        the series at the 4/26 meeting.)

Local news:

        Channel 9 will be running the Acadamy-Award-winning animated short
        film "The Wrong Trousers" this Wednesday at 8:00.  This
is a must
        see.  (And for those who have already seen it at SotRT or Anglicon,
        this airing will also include some behind-the-scenes stuff, too.)
        Yes, it's during our video meeting, but that's what VCRs are for.

        This Thursday, "Festival Hong Kong" (at the Varsity) will
be showing
        Jackie Chan's "Armour of God II" (with a great fight
scene in a wind
        tunnel), and "Wing Chun" (which sounds a little like
"Death Wish",
        but Michelle Khan could wipe the floor with Charles Bronson any
        Jeff-Bob says check 'em out.  Call 632-3131 for showtimes.


        Jeff's TV pick of the month: "Newsradio", NBC, Tuesday,
        This show was designed around Dave Foley (of the late lamented
        Kids in the Hall"), and also stars Phil Hartman.  Last week's
        episode featured something I'd never seen before - the open joke
        actually told _before_ the episode started.  Jeff-Bob says check it
        out.  (Hard-core Dave Foley fans might also want to know that
        Pat" is out on laserdisc.)
