    Poster status

    Right off the bat, I'm sure this is in the wrong section, so moderators feel free to move. I am trying to track down the status of the A2 set of Baldassari posters I ordered and paid for back in mid-July. I've tried to PM Bernie in the past few weeks, but as I've heard no reply (which is...

    Latest Silva Space:1999 release

    Is anyone here knowledgeable about the S99 CD notice I received today from Amazon.co.uk? It's Y1 music, one CD. Is this a new abbreviated version of the 2-CD Fanderson release of a few years ago? Any new remixes, enhancements? Perhaps just a re-release from 2004? I read through the Silva...

    Bing: 7 Jan 2010

    While not my favorite search engine, Bing has just gone up a notch or two in my estimation. Today's image is of a moon (Io, perhaps?) with several 'facts' you can uncover as you mouse over. Check out the one on the right hand side of the image.... There's obviously a S99 fan lurking among...

    Transporter's Lego Eagle... a WIP

    I've long wanted a Lego Eagle, and now I'm not so far off getting one! This has been an exercise in patience... learning how to root through BrickLink, squinting to see the difference between one slope and another, realizing as I have all the brinks in front of me that I picked the wrong piece...

    Network DVD sale

    I haven't seen this posted elsewhere, yet... Network DVD (the folks that put out the awesome remastering of S99 series one) is having a 40% off sale of their entire stock through January 25th. http://www.networkdvd.net/ For those of us on the far side of the pond: all of their dvds are R2...

    Khan has died

    Egads, two actors who loomed large in my childhood have died within the twenty-four hours. In addition to Patrick McGoohan, we have now lost Ricardo Montalban. He was 88. RIP.

    First Lady of Trek joins Great Bird of the Galaxy

    And another. Majel Barrett died today of leukemia at age 76. The article on MSNBC says she will be heard as the voice of the Enterprise in the upcoming movie. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/28300175/ Damn. We're losing too many too fast.

    Happy Birthday, to us!

    Three years old today, which in cyber-board-years probably puts us in our early adulthood. :lol: Thanks much to Mark for prevailing against common wisdom and pushing his dream through to completion. I've learned bunches hanging around here, and have a lighter, but happier, wallet for it. ;)...

    Space1999.org returns

    During a purge of dead bookmarks, quite to my surprise I found the return of this site. The most recent news seems to be over two years old, but at least the site is back up. :yes:

    News taken to new heights...

    Okay, now this is definitely a rather unique spin on the theme from series 1. From Fairbanks, Alaska no less. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=knKneQbpLLo

    Willoughby Goddard, RIP

    Willoughby Goddard born 4 July 1926 in Bicester, Oxfordshire, died 11 April 2008. While not exactly one of my favorite episodes, still another link with S99 is lost. Addendum.... http://www.thestage.co.uk/news/newsstory.php/20399/character-actor-

    Johnny Byrne has died

    Martin on the Catacombs confirms scriptwriter (for some of the best S99 episodes, IMHO) Johnny Byrne has died. Mateo Latosa (Powys Media owner) adds more details over on OnlineALpha. How sad.

    nice collection of movie posters

    I stumbled across this nice collection of scifi movie posters. Nicely sized so you can see a fair amount of detail. http://abduzeedo.com/cool-science-fiction-posters

    Out of the mouths of babes...

    No, not the ones from that thread, but my children. :P We're about halfway through watching Thunderbirds (and loving every episode) and took an off-school snow day as an excuse to watch 2 more episodes, and then an episode of S99. We popped Breakaway into the dvd player and settled in. I...

    arachnid invasion

    S'okay... on top of the frequent google spiders, the almost as frequent yahoo slurp spiders (obviously in need of a review in dining manners! :lol:), now we have an MSNBot spider. These are good things, right? :think: The entire computer spider-thing is a bit fuzzy in my understanding.
