» Sunday, May 24, 2009Timegate, Day 3, Part 2
Well, phooey, the network connection is down. First it wouldn't go anywhere after I clicked the "accept" link. Finally it just said "connection interrupted." And of course it's Sunday and they probably don't have anyone around who knows about computers.
Well, I shall write my entries as if I were online anyway.
Anyway, Louis Robinson's Hound of the Baskervilles panel was super as always. This year he had some clips from various productions of the Hound, including a 1980s Russian version which was apparently very popular there, and a silent version, and of course the scenes with Basil Rathbone/Nigel Bruce and with Jeremy Brett. He also had a neat book about Hound which is like The Annotated Christmas Carol in which there is more commentary than story! :-) Oh, and a Hound teapot!
Then sat out in the lobby trying fruitlessly to get on; figured by the time I did, it would be time to get up and go watch Mary Tamm and Terrance Dicks. Sure enough, it is!
Hate to go...someone is playing the lobby piano...much better than the emo/whatever tripe on the loudspeakers. Where do they get these canned music packages?
