    Hey, all,

    Anyone besides me going to Dragon*Con in Atlanta this weekend? We've got several guests from Farscape coming including Anthony Simcoe (D'Argo) and Lani Tupu (Crais, and the voice of Pilot). We've also got at least one panel discussing the cancellation of the series and our hopes for the future. Here are the links:

    The site for the track I help to run: http://www.geocities.com/onub/itrack.html

    There is occasionally some Muppety stuff there, too -- one guy did a "Jim Henson Remembered" presentation for several years. He'd show old IBM meeting films and talk show appearances from the '60s, then he'd show never-been-released footage of Jim appearing at a puppetry convention in '89 with Kevin Clash, Steve Whitmire and several JHH characters. In the year I saw this presentation ('99), background puppeteer Thom Stanley got up at the end and talked about his experiences on the set of the not-yet-released Muppets from Space. I don't think this presentation was done the last couple of years, but I can double check about this year if anyone's interested.

    Anyway, if any of you are going, let me know! We'll arrange a place to meet and say hi -- it's always good to meet a fellow Muppet fan in the flesh.
