19MAY2019 – OCF Update – ShatnerCon or ShatnerKhan?

I was out of town all day Saturday (18MAY) and only got back this afternoon.  It was a family event and gave me a chance to see all the people who are so important to me but don’t live int he area.  Most of the discussions were family stuff that doesn’t belong on a blog like this but there was one piece of business that could be discussed here.

A small secret fanatical group of Shatner fans will gather in July to celebrate and mock all things Bill Shatner.  The agenda will include the viewing of prodigious doses of Shatner on the screen and scholarly papers dedicated to dissecting the genius, nay the divinity, of the greatest bad actor of his generation.

But the naming committee is deadlocked between ShatnerCon and ShatnerKhan as the official designation of this seismic event.  It seems only fitting that you, the audience of Orion’s Cold Fire step forward and cut this Gordian Knot.  Or something.

Anyway, the road trip has thrown me behind schedule so I will be scrambling to put up contnet for the next few days.

    “Con” has been done to death in many other venues. “Khan” is a nice play on words and gives a nod to perhaps Kirk’s greatest nemesis.

      Currently it’s supposed to be Friday July 12th in New England. But this is the exploratory stage. If it turns out to be fun we can try to expand on it. Meanwhile I’ll have a live blogging link to share the awfulness.

      Against all odds, I don’t think there has been. And there certainly hasn’t been a ShatnerKhan!
