First is big news for the Five and Dime Fangirls – we are going to be showing our first Who Crack Video Track at the Time Meddlers meeting at the LASFS this coming Sunday, June 17. It will show in the afternoon, sometime after 12:00 noon and is the perfect 1-hour of Doctor Who music videos, archaic Dalek t.v. commercials and hilarious interview goodness for the newbie to the genre and the old hand who loves classic episodes. If you’re local, DON’T MISS IT!
Map to the LASFS –
We’ve caught wind that there is going to be a release of a sweet, new bedtime story book called, Goodnight Pond. Due out later this month, if it lives up to its cover and the theme of the story that inspired it, it will be an adorable book for WhoFans of any and all ages. Sign up on their mailing list here.
Hanging on for the next Gally
We on Twitter’s #gally hashtag always talk about how great this year’s Gally was and count the days to the next one. It’s hard to keep things alive between Gallys, especially when we have months until the next episode. Things that help are reviews of the last Gallifrey, even better when they include pics AND pics we didn’t catch in other reviews. This breakdown of praedestinatio’s LiveJournal’s Gally days experience helps keep the Gally withdrawl blues away. Thank you, praedestinatio!
That’s it for now. Check back next Tuesday for more Who news to keep us all alive until the new series premieres!
It’s DONE! Our second annual Who Crack Video Track of Doctor Who music videos, fanvids and general YouTube nonsense is ready for tomorrow’s world premiere at Gallifrey One! We will be in the Scottsdale Room at 12:30 p.m….and…
I am actually seriously thinking that since we will be the first panel in there, we will be getting there as early as we can and POSSIBLY airing something special before the panel starts.
Last year’s video track?
Videos that didn’t make it in but are still kick-ass?
Maybe. You’ll have to come and see. We will let you know what’s happening via Twitter, so stick close to your feed.
The peeps who brought you the Amy Pond Paradox at DragonCon are at it again! They are organizing another photoshoot for Gallifrey One 2012. Costume/outfit choices are going to be on a first-come, first-serve basis. They are also looking for a photographer since the one at DragonCon won’t be there for Gally. If anyone knows one who will be attending the convention that would like to do it, please contact me and I’ll put them in touch with you. It is tentatively set for Saturday but at this point the date has not yet been finalized. Stay tuned for more info as it comes in. (photo by Christa J. Newman)
We the Gallifrey “family” have been waiting for this ever since it was announced they would be taping. Then the excitement ramped up while people watched it being taped at the convention and even got to participate. Now it’s finally done. They did a fantastic job. Thank you, Craig!
Missed Gallifrey this year? Now you can watch our premiere Who Crack Video Track on our new YouTube Channel! It is up at last, complete with the hand-done 11 Doctor countdown opening and end credits sequence that were such a joy to do for this massive project.

I’ve been reading the Twitter #gally feed since the end of the convention and while it’s helping keep the end-of-con blues away, it is also sad to see so many succumbing to the dreaded and ubiquitous “con crud”…those nasty, germy things we all pick up at conventions from time to time.
It wasn’t by chance that I didn’t get sick this year…it took careful planning and determination, but when your favorite Doctor is in town, it is easy to find the will and determination to stay healthy. Except for Peter Davison’s very first appearance at Gallifrey, way back in 1989, I have been consistently sick this time of year with everything from flu to back problems. Perhaps because of the excitement over his being in town, one of my worst years of illness coincided with his last appearance. I threw not one, but TWO discs out in my back and spent the majority of the convention laying in the back of our minivan in absolute agony. Determinedly, (or stupidly), I would periodically emerge to catch him on stage and in the dealer’s room, while spending the rest of the time in the van, listening to the torrential rain pounding the roof and cursing my bad luck.
The final straw was last year – a year he was supposed to be here, but couldn’t make it. While I spent the first two days well, the last day I came down with a high fever and flu-like symptoms and missed attending the last day. Over the course of the next day or two as I broke out in the ugliest rash of my life, it came to the horrible diagnosis that I had somewhere, at some point before the convention (about 10 days before), been exposed to chicken pox.
That was it.
This year I took the greatest pains to stay well. Once a month back adjustments (including one the day before the convention) and I got a flu shot (which I have never done in my life) at the beginning of December. Nine days later I got sick, but it wasn’t the flu. It was a chest cold my husband brought home from work. Still plenty of time to get over it and recover. Most every year I get my yearly cold in December and am over it in plenty of time, so I wasn’t concerned.
It was about this time I started on something else new… “Thieves Oil” – a mixture of essential oils applied to the pulse points on the wrists daily, it boosts the immune system and kills whatever bugs you come in contact with during the course of the day. I was taking a chance that this $40 .5 oz bottle was going to help make the difference, but I was determined to do everything in my power to make this a healthy, memorable experience this year. I used it religiously, missing only one day between the day I started it and today. The oil seems to have worked because I am still plague free so far.
Perhaps the biggest help, ironically, was a life-altering shift in my stress levels. Things have been financially tight since last summer, and instead of worrying about the bills, I relied heavily on distancing myself from the stress, but still tackling the problem. A 12-week, extremely intensive “Black Belt Course in Excellence” course two years ago, which included heavy Law of Attraction theory and application, paved the way for better utilization of shifting my perspective towards stress and money. And as science has proven, stress reduces our immune system’s ability to fight off infections.
I hope everyone gets better quickly and that in some small way, this article gives you some ideas on how to beat the Con Crud and thoroughly enjoy next year’s Gallifrey.
With this week being one of recovering from the best conventions we have attended in the past at least 15 years, I’m a little behind the fast-paced news coming out surrounding Gallifrey. Just keeping up on the Twitterverse’s #galley hashtag has been a bloody chore in of itself! Expect the next week to be a daily roundup of everything connected to Who.
The first thing deserving mention, even above the convention itself, is the sad news that came to the Who world Tuesday evening through Twitter. The classic Who legend, Nicholas Courtney, aka The Brigadier, passed away peacefully at the age of 81. His last appearance in Doctor Who was in The Sarah Jane Chronicles last year in the two-part story Enemy of the Bane. Doctor Who Big Finish Audio Drama Executive Producer Nick Briggs said of his long-time friend: ‘I’ve known Nick for around 25 years and I am so sad that he has left us. I know that many of us will have such lovely memories of spending time with him. Our thoughts are with his wife Karen, his family and all of you who knew and loved him.”
We will miss you, Brigadier. You can now stand down Brig…job done, Earth protected. Watch an episode with him this week and do a salute, five rounds rapid. Splendid chap…all of him.
