I Hear the Words, "That's Final" Outta Your Mouth Again, They Truly Will Be

"Crime and politics, little girl. The situation is always -- fluid."

Badger left out "and convention schedules" in that list too. I posted a few days ago a tentative schedule for Bards Without Borders, April 5, 2008 as part of FilKONtario. Well, ladies and menfolk - it's changed. FOR THE BETTER! Yea! How much better? How about a SECOND concert by the Bedlam Bards?

Here's the low down (dirty deceiver) on it now:

10:00 am - 11:00 am: Q&A and autographs with the Bedlam Bards. Fairly self explanatory title don't you think?
---Dealers' Room and Con Suite also open---

11:00 am - 12:00 pm: Hypnotized by Firefly:
Cedric will take you on a journey of the 'Verse and you can sail on your favorite space ship- all via your own mind.
---Dealers' Room and Con Suite also open---

12:00 pm -1:00 pm: Videos of the 'Verse:
Fan vids and other collect wonders of the Browncoaty theme projected for your viewing pleasure. As mentioned before, the world premiere of "The Fisher Price Little People Version of Serenity" will be shown. Also, Nathan Town himself has given us permission to air his wonderful Fan Film parody "Mosquito". Other shiny viewings will be included as well.
---Dealers' Room and Con Suite also open---

1:00 pm - 5:15 pm FilKONtario concerts in the main hall.
Four main concerts, plus several "one shots" by great filkers from all over the continent. The Bards' show is scheduled for 3:15 pm and will be followed by vixy and Tony's performance (as mentioned earlier this is the duo who wrote and recorded "Mal's Song" as 'Escape Key')
---Dealers' Room and Con Suite also open---

5:30 pm - 7:00 pm: Chow's in Ten - No Need to Dress:
We'll be serving pizza by the slice and drinks (all for a nominal fee). Hang out with your fellow Browncoats and take some time to mingle and schmooze with our guests of honor- the Bedlam Bards! After all, I'm sure Hawke and Cedric have a powerful need to eat some time this con...!

7:00 pm - 8 pm: In the Company of Kin
Team up with a Browncoat friend and answer questions based on each other's depth of fandom. The team with the most points walks away with shiny prizes!

8:00 pm - 9:00 pm: Some People Juggle Geese!
Try your hand at juggling baby geese. If you can keep 'em flying longer than anyone else, you get prizes! Can't juggle? No problem! Simply "Toss-A-Gos"! Get more fluffy little birds in a WASH tub than anyone else, and you, too will have lovely parting gifts!

9:00 pm -11:00 pm: The Bedlam Bards - On the Drift (without power-- ie Unplugged)
Didn't like sharing *your* Bedlam Bards with everyone else in the main concert hall? Then end your evening in a smaller, more intimate setting for two hours of music. Sing-a-longs, requests and many selections from the Bards' vast repertoire will be included. Also, Hawke will be playing selections from his brand new cd "Out of the Nest". A great way to enjoy the Bedlam Bards' music and company.

Well, there you have it- the Bards Without Borders schedule as it stands right now. The shindig is only 10 days away! So come out and join us, won't you? There's still time to register: (registration page-- )

Until next time:
"Not your kind of party- more with the conversation and less with the hitting with pool cues."
