Can’t Stop the Browncoats

Details are scarce right now, but there’s a notice on the Booster Events site that due to “financial difficulties,” it’s possible that the Big Damned Flanvention 2 may be cancelled. Please note that the event has not been cancelled and if it is, you’ll most likely find out through Booster Events’ official channels sooner than you will here.

None of that is particularly newsworthy. Sad to say, convention cancellations are not altogether uncommon.

What’s interesting about this one though is how the attendees are reacting. As a contingency plan, the California Browncoats are organizing an event which has been dubbed, the “Browncoats’ Backup Bash.” In the event that the Flanvention does fall through, and attendees are unable to cancel their hotel/airplane/other reservations, there will still be an event to attend.

Kudos to the California Browncoats for their efforts. That’s shiny.

Return of the Return of Pink Five

Visiting the Pink Five site recently, I was delighted to learn that post-production on Volume Two of Return of Pink Five is coming along nicely (Volume 1 is already available on Atom Films). Reading a little further, I learned there’s even more to come!

Return of Pink Five was already set to be the longest of the three parodies, and so they’d made the decision to split it into two parts (thus the Volumes One and Two). Well, it turns out that there’s even more film than they’d realized. So along with the other two, there’s also going to be a Volume Three.

So the good news is, even more Pink Five. The bad news is, we have to wait for it.

One Frak’n Big Party

Battlestar Galactica is due to start its third season on October 6 and one group of fans is looking to start the season with a party!

Organizers of the Frak Party have created a web site where local organizers can advertise their season premiere parties and where fans without a party can look for one in their area. Combined, the local parties will form the nationwide Frak Party.

That could be pretty frak’n cool.
