What I did last weekend.
Went here



Saw these people
   
 

The Peter Wingfield Fan Club had a convention in Vegas which was small and lovely and ever so much fun.   I'm now completely converted to the Wingfield.  At the convention were (top row above) David Abramowitz, Jon Cassar and Jim Byrnes and the larger photo is Peter Wingfield.  And his feet.

I have not posted my photos because my camera hates me.

It was held at the Riviera.  Now, if the Riviera was a person, it would be your boozy great aunt Tilly who just retired after working for 28 years at the phone company, wears stretch pants and go-go boots all year round, smells of Kools and drinks Sloe Gin Fizzes all day.  And you love her because she always lets you sneak food before dinner and she always tells you the truth.

So, the convention. This is what happens to me: I like a random actor or show but they may not be at the top of my pop culture rotation.  Then I go to a convention and I hear someone speak, like, for instance, Peter Wingfield, and then I fall in love with them and I'm compelled to look into getting some sort of jack installed in my skull to make it simpler and quicker to mainline EVERYTHING IN WHICH THEY HAVE EVER BEEN.

I'm so screwed, because there's a lot of Highlander to get through.

So, at the con there was talk of the future of television and how the internet will affect the networks and how NOT to make a movie in Lithuania.  All good stuff.  And I'm a little bit in love the 24 producer Jon Cassar.

I met some of the best people in the world and it makes me sad that they all live so far away because I want to hang out with them lots. I'm inviting all of you to come hang out in beeej 's basement any time you want.

Aren't you lucky that I have lots and lots and lots of Peter Wingfield stuff that you haven't watched yet? *g*

Yes. Yes, I am.

Now I just have to decide if I want to get the RCA jack or a USB port for my brain.

Hi sweetie
*glomps*
Brilliant to meet you. And welcome to the madness that is PW and HL fandom. Pull up a chair and admire the view.

Love your description of the Riviera - spot on!

Heh

Welcome to the world of Wingfield! Check out my LJ for downloads :)

Was a joy making your acquaintance my dear and I look forward to seeing you again sometime in the near future the work gods being willing. I shall definitely see you in 2010.

Re: Heh

I'll be sacrificing many smalls animals and children to the gods to make that happen.

You could always pursue your true vocation: world domination.

It was lovely meeting you! Welcome to the madness :) I have quite a few of his things uploaded, so give me a shout if you're looking for something in particular.

And Jon Cassar is made of awesome! I first met him about 11 years ago, and he's been a favourite of mine ever since.

Lovely meeting you too!

Where did you see Cassar? Was it a Forever Knight event or Nikita?

Jon and Nigel Bennett have a charitable organization called MPICA, and they held auctions every year till last year. I didn't get to all of them, but a good portion :) A good friend of mine was the chairwoman of the auctions when they were being held.
