Reviews:
Andy reviewed Costume Con in Toronto as having fairly high attendence, it was great and amazingly good & worth going to Toronto for; apparently Montreal is a hot-bed for mead brewing; then reviewed Demi-Con in DesMoines where he and Kevin were Fan GoHs as they had a good time & flew back on Frontier Airlines [evil Kevin stated 'never again'] & their tickets cost twice what they should have and he mostly hates them & reviewed the Eurovision party was good

Yochanan reviewed 'Transcendence' as barely worth spending matinee for & was disappointing, reviewed 'Divergence' as face-paced and fun & reviewed 'Spiderman 2' as not great but still good

Josh reviewed the Gibralter International airport as terrifying & reviewed a game builder's event at Game Castle, play-testing games - as total blast

Dave C reviewed an article about Godzilla at deepseanews.com as thought-provoking

Adrienne reviewed 'Orphan Black' as the acting is amazing and Felix is still her favorite character

Diane reviewed JC's midlife party as it was a blast

Mo reviewed the 'Penny Dreadful' pilot as bloody, naked and kind of obvious

we did auctions

we adjourned at 9:40

and the rumor of the week was: 'with enough beards, BASFA will rise like the Phoenix'

review: 'The Wind Rises' rocks even more than the usual Miyzaki (so far as there such a thing). If you have ever loved Japan, flying machines, a slide rule, a tragic love story, or Japan, this will make you cry, and glad of it.
