So, on 20 November 2011, I went to see a Harry Potter movie. It was the only HP movie I’ve seen in the theatre. Here are a few messages I posted on Twitter about it through the day.
For today’s non-photo Time Capsule, I thought I”d check out Amazon and see if I ever ordered anything in a November. Yep, twice! Here’s one of them. Some Christmas shopping!
The Stay Puft Marshmallow man at Hal-Con. A Ghostbusters Cos player brought his own Staf Puft guy. He was really good! (The cos player, not SP.) He even brought a bunch of invoices for ghostbusting. Invoices to Hal-Con, The Jedi Council, The Federation, The Empire, etc. and gave them to other cos players.

There were nicer photos from “June 20ths past” but the point of a Time Capsule is to try and tell a story, so that’s why I chose this photo for today.
About half way through my time in Germany, I learned something. It’s super easy to jump on a train and go to a concert. Once I learned that, I scoured the local concert listings for good shows.
This was Bon Jovi’s One Wild Night show.

While in England in 2009 I attended this Veronica Mars panel featuring Jason Dohring (Logan) and Francis Capra (Weevil). Given the new movie hype, I thought this was worth posting.

Tonight I attended the Moonlight Concert in Paradise, as I try to do most every year when it’s held in August, as a fundraiser for the local community hall. Rumours have it that there were approximately 700 people in attendance! This included a new couple from Pennsylvania who were married that afternoon. One of the band members proposed to his girl after the second set :) This is a Big Band concert with the Annapolis Big Band, featuring Donna-Lynne Holmes. It’s always a GREAT time. Entrance cost is a free will donation and they sell 50/50 tickets (tonight it went for over $450… and I didn’t win! *pout*).
If you’re in the area next August you simply MUST try and visit! You never know who will be there :) This is the first time we’ve had a couple come here from their wedding and one year there were even a group of very good swing dancers in the audience!
The event is held on a beautiful estate and people bring their own chairs and often even picnics. Some go all out and wear nice clothes and bring a fold up table with a table cloth, full spread and champagne. And don’t forget the candles
It was a wonderfully warm evening with a mostly clear sky. Even the moon cooperated and came out nice and full!
Had a great time at the RCMP Musical Ride tonight. Even if it was POURING. I blame the weather on my poor photos :(
My TV room is almost totally wallpapered in posters. Most of the decor is Star Wars – posters, ads, postcards, sketch cards, most of a Vader video display and some atrwork printed out from the net.
There’s also some generic art, book, beer and music advertisements a few Buffy/Angel posters, a hockey poster, a framed National Geographic issue and some funny infographics printed from the net. I once had a lot of generic movie posters from video stores but have gotten rid of them all except a Dark Knight poster (actually an art print) and a Snake Eyes poster (kept only because it’s in German). There are a couple of art prints from my travels, a collage of my photography and a couple of cross stitch pieces. Finally, I have a Military component including photos of aircraft and some battle and mission maps.
It all needs to be presented a bit nicer, but that costs money that I don’t have :(
