June 28-July 2, 1999
Don't bother seeing Wild Wild West this weekend . . . Well, okay, I don't know that it's awful. But I've been so underwhelmed by previews and I've read so many bad reviews, that I'm going to wait. Maybe you should, too. But then again, I've not seen it so what do I know? It's possible you'll like it (or that I would, for that matter). Let me know what you think . . . should I go see it?
Do watch episodes of the tv series The Wild, Wild West on TNT. (Marathon: 10pm CST Friday July 2 through 11am CST Saturday July 3rd Thereafter at 8am CST Saturdays, 5am CST weekdays).
There's also a long interview with Robert Conrad-- I'd forgotten that The Wild, Wild West was cancelled because it was deemed too violent (the more things change . . . ). Robert Conrad:
Harry Knowles writes about his trip to Minneapolis for Convergence.
Harry will be updating Ain't It Cool News from the Radisson South in Bloomington, MN. (a.k.a. my home away from home. I've spent many of the best hours of my life there at conventions and parties and just hanging out in the bar, believe it or not).
I've put together a TV portal page. Well, I'm still adding things to it, actually, but there's already a lot there. If you can think of anything I've missed, please let me know.
Yankscape is what happens when a Weird Al fan decides to make fun of Netscape, I think.
Another new weblog!
Convergence really is imminent. This new science fiction convention is July 2-4, 1999 at the Radisson South Hotel in Bloomington, Minnesota. Guests of Honor include Forrest Ackerman and Harry Knowles.
I won't be staying at the hotel, but I'll be attending, methinks. It's a must for me for the music, if nothing else. And 'cuz I'm curious and I wish these folks well with their convention. Plus friends have all-but-ordered me to attend.
Backfence: dogs, commercial mascots, and Star Wars. Good bleat today, too.
StarWarsChicks.com is a website for, you guessed it, female fans of Star Wars. [via medley].
One of the proprietors of the above website wrote a fine piece about being a Star Wars chick for the new sci-fi webzine The 11th Hour. It echoes how I felt during much of the hypefest:
Clem Haskins steps down as Minnesota Gophers men's basketball coach after 13 years. :-( I like Clem and think he did tremendous things for basketball in Minnesota. Sigh. Hope he wasn't involved in the alleged nastiness.
PalmColors has cool colored replacement cases for Palm Pilots and PalmIIIs. I think I need the clear blue replacement case for my Palm III.
This particular log is a lot smaller than usual, do visit last week's log if you're new to this page. (Or if you aren't and want to, of course).
