=-=-=-=-= Society of the Rusting TARDIS Newsletter (#39, 06/11/96)

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

How did I spend my last three weeks?  Seeing 50 films at the 22nd Seattle
International Film Festival.  Short reviews will probably show up in the
next few newsletters.  (And that's also this week's excuse for why this
newsletter is so late and so content-free.  But never fear - Anglicon's
school is out, and the film festival is history - real news is just around
the corner.)

Also, there are a lot of new subscribers, and I'd like to apologize for not
sending a personal reply to each of you.  If your query sounded like you
were interested in the group, I added you to the mailing list.  Feel free
to unsubscribe if it's not what you're looking for.

Longtime members know that I've been meaning to put this list under an
automated list-server.  Thankfully, I never found the time - mailing list
performance here on eskimo has been  s l o w  recently.  It's on my to-do
list, since performance is apparently becoming more reliable.

On tap this time:
	Quick news items
	Jon Pertwee condolences
	Doctor Who needs your $.32
	Upcoming SotRT events


Subject: Quick news items

Sound bites:

	Sorry, no time to hunt for news.

Local news:

	Earlier list month, KBTC held their semi-annual "EastEnders" /
	"Doctor Who" / "Blake's 7".  The goal was to raise $9000 for
	"EastEnders" ($7000 is how much it costs for six months, plus a
	$2000 shortfall from the last marathon) - I believe about $9300
	was the final total.  The goal for "Doctor Who" and "Blake's 7" was
	$15000 (the cost for six months), and the final total was almost
	exactly $15000 after the Monday repeat.  Thanks to everyone who
	pledged, and everyone who came down and helped answer phones.

	By comparison, Channel 9's latest "Red Dwarf" marathon netted them
	over $200,000.  A season of six "Red Dwarf" episodes costs them
	less than $6000.  Unfortunately, they pay to block KBTC from airing
	it.  So, what kind of science fiction are you seeing on Channel 9
	for your $200,000?  Hmmm...Feel like a chump yet?


	Remember that group photo that was sent to "Fist of Fun" a few
	months back?  Well, last week I received a reply.  Come to the
	meeting and see what Stu and Rich had to say.
