Hello there Con Maniacs,
Lets take a trip to Newfoundland in Canada for Sci Fi on the Rock which will be held at the The Holiday Inn,
180 Portugal Cove Road, St. John’s Newfoundland April 16 & 17, 2011. I know it sounds like it is far away. Really it is not that far from New York. This is a fan run event.
So far they have a rather eclectic guest line up. First up it the gorgeous Suzie Plakson. Suzie has played several different Star Trek characters over the years. A Vulcan doctor named Selar, Worf’s Klingon mate K’Ehleyr, a female Q and Tarah an Andorian on Enterprise.
Also from Star Trek is JG Hertzler who is best known for his portrayal of of the Klingon General Martok. Although he is an amazing actor who has appeared on Six Feet Under, Roswell, Charmed, Highlander: The Series, Zorro and so many more.
Now we travel through the eye of the storm to Stargate with David Nykl who played Doctor Zalenka.
Last but certainly not least is Robert Axelrod. Robert is an American actor who has been in several movies and lent his voice to countless television shows including Digimon, having started anime voice acting in 1980. Two of his best known roles was that of Lord Zedd, the main antagonist of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, and Finster, the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers monster maker. He has also portrayed a Paul McCartney look-a-like on the popular sitcom, Family Matters.
Just to get a chance to go to Newfoundland would be a treat. I love Canada, it is a beautiful country with wonderful people. I have been to Toronto and Vancouver. Both are great cities. Vancouver is so plush and green and Toronto has a wonderful atmosphere due to being on the lake. If you get a chance you should make the trip to this event. If you do let me know, you can reach me at Magid@raybin.com
So many choices! I can travel via starship or Stargate…Hmmm what to do?

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…
