This evening we attended a fundraiser at a local independent multipurpose theatre – The Retro Dome – where they had a mixer, a performance of songs (Barbara, Bette and Carol Burnett), a raffle, and an auction. We won the picture below in the silent auction, and now resides in the place of honor that once belonged to Space Ghost.
We were impressed that everyone pictured has signed it – as well as the creator himself, Gene Roddenberry. So there’s 4 autographs on it that we couldn’t hope to ever get, plus the near improbability of getting Nimoy or the Shat’s scribble. The record hanging on it is the description tag which was pasted on – as were the auction paddles – old 7-inch singles.
So, we’ve had this site for over two years now and the rip off of the Ben and Jerry logo was nice – but it’s time for a bit of a change. The previous logo has Simsonized versions of ourselves, this new one is Pocoyized (a children’s show, whose English narrator Twitered about the site.) And with a new version of us, came a new logo.
For the past month (or so) we had been gearing up for the opening knight of Spamalot. It all started when our friend Kevin discovered that the show would be opening on his birthday. He made all the calls to Broadway San Jose’s booking office, and committed a group of friends to the night. Then we made the suggestion of costumes. This was a no-brainer for us, as when we saw Spamalot in London we noticed a few people dressed as Knights (though it was the matinee showing on Halloween…) Also, it was a no brainer as Kevin and his husband Andy (as well as many of the people attending) are costumers. Kevin took this suggestion and ran with it…
