Some of you already know (and some of you probably don't care ), that this weekend I will be in Atlanta, attending Dragon*Con for the first time. It would have to take something big for me not to go to the John Williams concert with you people. I've been a fan of his movie scores since The Poseidon Adventure came out in 1972, before most of you were born, even thought of. I used to listen to the "Jaws" score quite frequently before "Star Wars" came out. I've been checking out the boards, and I seem to be the only one from the Southern California Fan Force chapters that's going. At least, noone's posting about it if they are going. I will be going to the Official Fan Force Dinner on Saturday night. Since I'll be representing So. Cal., I'll try to leave everyone there with a favorable impression of us here. I had asked Barry if he could make me a couple of badges for me to take with me, but I don't know if he's had the chance. I have an email notification from our OCSWS boards that I had a new Privat message, and I'd hoped it was from him, but when I opened my in box, it said "You have no new messages". So I don't know what happened. I'll try to remember to take pictures while I'm there. I'm too used to someone else having a camera and doing that. I don't seem to be that great of a photographer. I'll be partying with Fan Force, Rebel Legion, and 501st people.
