=-=-=-=-= Society of the Rusting TARDIS Newsletter (#35, 04/08/96)

>>>  Items of interest to British media fans and Seattle-area residents, 
>>>  and whatever else I feel like spewing about.  You have been warned. 

Thanks to everyone who turned up at our last video meeting (which was, I
will shamelessly mention, a shameless Anglicon 9 promotion).  In fact, this
newsletter will be pretty brief because I spend this past weekend at
Norwescon (in part promoting Anglicon).  And look for our annual Anglicon
commercial, which should already be appearing on KBTC.  (Huh-huh, he said
"member", uh, huh-huh, huh-huh-huh)

I should have lots of Brit stuff in the next issue - I just haven't had the
time to sift through it yet.

On tap this time:
	Quick news items
	ANGLICON 9 in Seattle, 5/3/96 - 5/5/96 (Current info)
	Upcoming SotRT events


Subject: Quick news items

Sound bites:

	Rumour has it that Chris Barrie ("Rimmer") walked out during the
	filming of the latest season of "Red Dwarf".

	Fox's Fall Saturday morning schedule has "The Tick" moving to
	11:30am.  (That's one less reason to get up bright and early on

Local news:

	Society of the Rusting TARDIS video meetings are expanding!  Starting
	in May, there will be bonus video meetings on the fifth Wednesday of
	the month (when there is one, of course).  These will be outside of
	the "regular" video night continuity - any series with a continuing
	storyline will not be run on such nights.  Hopefully these nights
	will be a way to help draw down the inventory of good stuff I've got
	queued up.

	This year's Dreamcon (#11) has been postponed until next year due to
	problems in securing a hotel on an acceptable weekend.


	Sylvester McCoy says he's "thinking of writing a coffee table book
	about the ceilings of Vancouver."

	I've been asked to announce a fanzine called NetZine, a science
	fiction television fanzine.  Check it out at http://www.cei.net/~tec

			 They were about six feet tall, and at a rough
			 classification could have been described as
			 mammalian bipeds.  Their forelimbs terminated in
			 digital extremities; they possessed primary optical
			 organs; and the respiratory orifice was subdivided.
			 The oral orifice was provided with an articulated
			 mandible at its lower extremity, and to sum up -
			 they bore a striking resemblance to _homo sapiens_.
