  • Richard Biggs Memorial Show March 2005

    Some of you may have been hearing rumors of a small fundraising convention to benefit Rick Biggs' family. I just got word from Lori (Rick's wife) that it's definitely on. She sent me a flyer (.jpg file) in case anybody would like me to email it to them, but this is the information I transcribed from it. GREAT guest list!

    That's too steep a price for a short, one-shot event. I hope a lot of people attend, though. We are all doing our part with the auction and such, so I don't feel guilty for passing on this one.

    Plus, ME in Hollywood? That just isn't right.
    Recently, there was a reckoning. It occurred on November 4, 2014 across the United States. Voters, recognizing the failures of the current leadership and fearing their unchecked abuses of power, elected another party as the new majority. This is a first step toward preventing more damage and undoing some of the damage already done. Hopefully, this is as much as will be required.

      Shame it's such a long way away. If I'd live anywhere in the States I'd be there.

          Is there any news yet on how much each autograph will cost?

            Not that I've heard so far. Possibly it'll be set by the actor as it often is. If I hear anything I'll pass it on.

              Man ... Everybody going is really lucky .. I would love to meet Melinda Clarke ... She is, after all, a goddess. (well, she was one on Xena....)

              And the others are cool, too.

                Too bad Walter Koenig isn't attending too as his presence could attract a decent Trek contingent as well (the more the merrier for this event, right?). I know he lives very near that hotel. I used to live about 5 minutes from that hotel and I had run into Walter in area businesses and the post office there in North Hollywood.

                I am disappointed that I have a prior commitment that day and won't be able to go - especially since I currently live about a 1/2 hour drive from the location.

                That said, the guest list is very strong and those who attend won't be disappointed.

                Regards,

                  I'm sad I won't be going, too. But as others have said, it's a steep price for a short, one-day event! I wonder if it wouldn't have attracted more attention and sold more tickets if instead they'd done it as a banquet at a con...? That's how I would have done it if I were in charge. Nonetheless, I do hope it brings in a lot of bucks for the kids' education fund.

                  I might have tried to scrape up the $$$ to attend if I didn't have other stuff in the way, but I'm having surgery on my arm next week, and there's no telling what shape I'll be in six or seven weeks later. Crowds are never a good thing after this kind of surgery, because getting bumped is _right out_ (and I speak from personal experience because I've already had it done on the other arm!).

                  So Jan, have enough fun for _all_ of us, okay? And remember, you have to spend a good chunk of that three-and-a-half hour afternoon session gazing at Andreas for me. Of course I'd do it myself if I were going.

                    <deep sigh> Well, I'll certainly do my best, Amy. I do hope I'm allowed to listen to him talk? I adore his voice if his Andreas voice is anything like his G'Kar voice. Ah, the sacrifices I make for my friends....<g>

                      Allowed? Yes, certainly. I'm not the jealous type.

                      And, he does sound a bit like G'Kar, but also surprisingly _not_. It's that midwestern accent, which he did not seem to lose through all of his world travels and living in Paris for years, etc. etc. Now, me, I happily dropped my Long-Islandese at the first opportunity! Although in my case, classical voice teachers beat it out of me. I'm surprised he didn't lose it as a matter of course through all those years of working on the stage. It's rather endearing, IMHO.

                        Is a UK equivalent completely out of the question - or do we need to wait until the actors cross the pond to film TMOS (hopefully!)?

                          I don't know, truly. It might depend on how well this one goes. And yes, I'm sure that it would need to be while the actors are over there anyway. Next time I hear from Lori Biggs, I'll be sure to mention it, though.
