Gallifrey One, the 21st Annual North American Doctor Who Celebration, at the LAX Marriott was held February  26-28, 2010. Since this was the 21st year there was a Blackjack and casino theme to the convention. Me and my fearless crew  hopped aboard the Tardis and went on Sunday.

Admission for the event was broken down like this: $75 for the weekend, $35 Friday or Sunday only, $40 Saturday only, $35 ages 12-16; children under 12 free with adult.

The bulk of the programming took place on the Marriott’s lower level, in the Imperial Ballroom. All the programs where very well attended and interesting. Graeme Harper panel was funny and insightful into what goes into writing for a show. A bonus was the Tardis on the stage. Also Doctor Who episodes where screened during programing in another room. An Art Show and Auction went on as well.

Sunday was attended by: Nicholas Briggs, Bob Baker, Louise Page, Georgia Moffett, Tommy Knight, Graeme Harper, John Levene, Colin Teague, and more!

The new autograph set up was snap and was no hassle at all. I would like this to be used at other conventions. Tickets where given out an hour before. The surplus tickets where then given out once all ticket holders where inside. Best of all no charge for autographs.

I would highly recommend this convention to all fans of the Doctor Who Universe. See you next year!

CALL FOR ALL HALLOWEEN HAUNT FANS’ SUPPORT - Sandy Graham as Queen of the Vampires T shirt Suscipio Drive - Theme Park Adventure

h1 Tuesday, March 30th, 2010

Once in a while, life throws us a nasty turn that really makes us all stop and take pause. This is one of those moments.

Sandy Graham, long a familiar icon of the Halloween Haunt event at Knott’s Berry Farm as Queen of the Vampires, has been stricken with cancer. Out of respect for Sandy, the details of her illness are being kept out of the public spotlight. Sadly, we can assure you that this is a most serious case that requires the love and attention of her family, friends and fans everywhere.

To help counter the enormous costs that Sandy is soon to be facing between medical bills, home care and food, the Haunt Family is coming together as one to help raise money to help Sandy in her great time of need.

Theme Park Adventure was asked to design a logo that could be printed on shirts, with approximately $10.00 of every sale going directly to Sandy’s donation fund. TPA Founder Rick West created the logo, at the top of page; this is a brief explanation of the design:

Over the past many years, fans and employees alike of Knott’s Halloween Haunt have come to know and love Sandy Graham as the Vampire Queen. While Sandy’s contributions to the event have varied on and off stage, it is her Queen persona that has established her firmly as a cornerstone of the Scary Farm.

We chose Latin as the language of the designs text - it is ancient, beautiful, and allows us to convey the meaning behind the shirt itself without blatantly becoming a billboard for our cause. The word “Suscipio” in Latin translates as “Support” and/or “To Raise Up”. And that is exactly what we have come together to do for our beloved Queen - support her, love her and to raise her up in prayer, wishes of strength, positive karma - whatever you choose to call it. We come together as one in Sandy’s hour of need and stand as the hands at her back; she is not alone and never will be.

The shirts are being provided by PSYCO Designz in Southern California, which is offering its printing services free of charge. The only cost being recovered from each purchase will go toward the actual cost of the shirts themselves.

Below the logo is a drop-down size/order button; once you make your selection, you will be taken from the Theme Park Adventure site to the actual donation page, which is hosted on PayPalTM.

We ask you to open your hearts and wallets and show your love and support for Sandy by proudly wearing one of these shirts. Thank you all so very much in advance - your contribution is appreciated.

A highly amusing synthesis of thinking man’s science fiction, post-modern humor, and a punk rocker’s jaundiced take on a culture at the point of collapse - All Movie Guide

This is the kind of movie that baffles Hollywood, because it isn’t made from any known formula and doesn’t follow the rules. - Roger Ebert

Cyndi Lauper & Lady Gaga VIVA GLAM makeup line - M·A·C AIDS Fund

h1 Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

MAC Cosmetics has just kicked off a a new line of cosmetics. Established in 1994 to support men, women and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS globally, VIVA GLAM I, II, III, IV, V and VI, were launched as continuous shades and have achieved tremendous success over the years. Spring 2010 sees two new VIVA GLAM shades introduced as limited life for 12 months on counter. Ladies and gentlemen, we give you the sensational Cyndi Lauper and the electric Lady Gaga!


Lauded, loved, copied, passionately acclaimed, the idol of all those for whom a quirky idiosyncrasy in makeup, hair, or style may say it all, this uber-talented performer has never been a copycat, always been a muse. A singer/songwriter, Lauper characteristically uses her fame as a performer to help make her message heard. Whether touring the country to assist food banks or helming the True Colors Fund, which lobbies for GLBT equality, Lauper stands for what she believes in and, when it comes to HIV/AIDS, that’s safe sex. With the launch of VIVA GLAM Cyndi, she looks forward to helping support women who have contracted HIV/AIDS through rape.


A true superstar, Lady’s Gaga’s shock-art approach to performance turns our heads and makes us all go gaga. An enfant terrible who grew up singing Cyndi Lauper songs, performing was in her DNA. By her teens, she was singing self-penned electro pop in New York’s Lower East Side. Today, aided by hit records, headpieces and countless accolades, her worldwide breakthrough has brought her well-deserved notoriety, but also the ability to cock our ears. A legend in her own time whose shock value now comes with a couture tag, she jokes about “changing the world one sequin at a time.” With the launch of VIVA GLAM Gaga, that could be one shade at a time. Her take on HIV/AIDS prevention: Be selective about those you love.

Every cent of the selling price of VIVA GLAM Lipstick and Lipgloss is donated to the M·A·C AIDS Fund to support men, women, and children living with HIV and AIDS.
