Hello Con Maniacs,
As we take our first baby steps into the New Year I thought I would take a look back at some events from 2010. Here we have Facts 2010 This event has a great lineup and here are a few videos of some their guests on stage. The first is of Noah Hathawaywho starred as Atreyu in The Neverending Story.
Next up is Doug Bradley who you all know as Pinhead from Clive Barker’s Hellraiser. I have worked with Doug several times and he is the consummate gentleman. He is always so gracious to his fans and what a sharp wit!
Also in attendance is a star among men, Billy Dee Williams. Most fans know him as Lando from the Star Wars(Empire and Jedi). But he was also the original Harvey Dent in the 1989 Batman movie, Lady Sings the Blues and ton more classic films.
Looks like this was a pretty amazing event to go too. I am looking forward to their announcements for this years event. If you would like to see more detailed coverage of these events and other on this site, contact the promoters of the events and let them know.

Hello Con Maniacs,
Only 12 days to Christmas. It seems to come faster and faster each year. I still love the season though. For some holiday cheer here is another pic from my personal decorating.
I hope that gave you some Christmas cheer. Now back to business. Some of the most gorgeous women and friends are appearing at the Women of Sci Fi event to be held at the Plano Center @ 2000 E. Spring Creek Parkway, Plano, Texas Jan 29-30, 2011. Some of their guest are some of my favorite people in Sci Fi.
The first is Katee Sackhoff (www.kateesackhoff.com)whomyou all know from Battlestar Galactica, CSI, 24, Nip/Tuck, the Bionic Woman and so much more. Katee is a great person and a good friend who has assisted me with my documentary on the HIV/AIDS epidemic, “We Need The Truth”. Please join the Face book page and show your support.
Still staying with Battlestar Galactica we have Tricia Helfer whom you have also seen in Lie To Me, Dark Blue, Supernatural and a whole host of other projects.
And of course the first woman of Sci Fi, the queen herself Nichelle Nichols. I need say nothing more than thank you for your friendship.
Well folks, I hope your week has gotten off to a great start. I would love to hear how your holidays are going, maybe some pics of your very own decorating. Send them to Magid@raybin.com
I wonder what would have happened if the Enterprise had met the Galactica? Or maybe the Cylons? What do you think? Would the crew of the Enterprise wipe the floor with those Toasters?

Im getting all nostalgic now. I am going to have to go dig up my corset and high heels from when I was Dr. Frankenfurter back in the 80′s. I think it’s time to do the Time Warp again because time is fleeting but nothing will ever be the same…I’m spaced out…I think I’m under sedation…Oh it’s all so wrong it’s right… If you want to tell me about it, contact me at Magid@raybin.com I’m also on Facebook, I’ll be looking for you…
