The Zombie Legions

On Monday afternoon, Lisa and I briefly stopped back in the hotel room for a few minutes, and while I checked e-mail, Lisa turned on the television. To our surprise, there was on one of the convention video channels my Doctor Who movie, The Zombie Legions. Although the tapes had been received, I'd seen nothing in the convention's printed schedules or the newsletter about a showtime, and so I figured they'd been lost or that I'd got them in too late to be shown. While disappointing, the latter would certainly have been understandable.

It's a pity I didn't know they actually would show them, or when. Had I known earlier in the convention, I could have done a bit of promotion. I still had a few Zombie Legions posters from the 1987 World Tour, for instance. While the con did not seem to have a video room (except anime), the TV in one of the two rooms of the Con Suite was usually on and people were watching stuff there. We could have at least had a notice in the newsletter. Or, had we known that the video schedule as printed couldn't handle us, the SF Museum of Oregon display in the exhibit hall included a mini-theater, with maybe ten seats in it. As I doubt more than that many people would have shown up, that would have been fine.

I don't really mean to complain -- CascadiaCon did very well by me, and I'm happy with things -- but I guess I'm always striving for perfection, even when I intellectually know that 95% is certainly good enough.
