    I want to go back and just live in that weekend. There were parts of it that were kind of a disaster for me, but I still want to go back and live in that weekend. When I visit my mom in Houston we sometimes travel down to Galveston to see the Gulf and have some quality Seafood. I see that Moody Gardens Pyramid in the distance and get a LARGE lump in my throat. I wish I had made more friends. I don't know why I didn't try to socialize more. I guess I was nervous or something. 🙄 But I was grateful to spend time with Jan and meet Jan from Denmark. 😄

    Sorry I often riminess about that weekend, but it only works when I try to share it places like this. When I start doing it around people I know they just look at me funny because they can't grasp what I mean. 🙄
    Yeah, there were major weather problems trying to get there for a lot of people. My plane kept getting delayed and delayed and we finally boarded when the crew timed out so it was finally cancelled. And when I finally got there, my Big Box 'O Swag for the #FreeBabylon5 table that the CThree Foundation was gracious enough to share with me was missing. Manning the table, I missed most of the panels but still had a really nice time.

    Was that the first time we met or was C2E2 the first? memory fades....

      Those who signed up for the Extravanganza should have received the replay link in their email. At least, I did.

        I got my Replay link.

        And yes Jan, C2E2 2013 is where we first met in person. Boxleitner and Mira were there promoting LANTERN CITY. Pat Tallman and JMS were there promoting Joe's Comics and the release of TEN GRAND. 😉

          Yes! Replay Link! Looks to be about 3 1/2 hours. Can't take time to watch it at the moment, but can let it run and listen to it while I zoom (pun) about.

            HEADS UP THAT EARLY BIRD TICKETS END TOMORROW - APRIL 10TH

            I am sooo looking forward to this event. LYTA ALEXANDER INTERVIEWING TALIA WINTERS!!!!!!

            HOPEFULLY I won't have to work. It is looking good so far and if they tell me next week I am expect to be at work Saturday I am saying no because I already have tickets to something. 😁😉

              As usual I got my ticket. Now what will we know before this event and what questions will they be able to answer?

                Read the information at the bottom of the most recent e-mail and looks like the format is changing shortly.

                "B5Events is becoming Patreon Only - by the end of summer, all events will be in the Patreon group."


                The July 31st event may be the last "open event", and in the future one would need a Patreon account/subscription to qualify.

                  I only attended one event, and enjoyed it, but this seems like a negative move and will limit accessibility to casual fans. Her existing Patreon isn't exactly doing well. Weird move.

                    Yeah I've attended most of the events and I might have to forget about it if that is going to be the case. Financially it really isn't an issue because I pay as much for an event as I would for the subscription, but she doesn't have an event every month and I don't want to feel financially obligated to check her Patreon regularly. I'll think about it and we'll see, but I doubt I'll do it.

                      FWIW, whenever JMS posts something on Patreon, I get an email so maybe you wouldn't need to check it regularly, only when she posts something you're interested in?

                      • I can understand Ms. Tallman wanting to change her format to decrease effort and maximize profit - it is first and foremost a business - but as a Lurker... oh well. Could see abolishing the Early Bird pricing and having a lower price for Patreon members and a higher one for Walk Ins to encourage signing up, but it is what it is.


                        Meanwhile, back at the ranch, seems there is also a Virtual B5-ish Galaxy Con event on September 4th, but since I've got no idea where to post about it....

                        ..and as mentioned in a foreshadowed/now-deleted post about other virtual cons having better merch, this one appears to offer the opportunity to "send things in to be signed" and purchasing autographed photos/posters/etc..
