I am presently making preparations to depart for the UK to interview writer Robert Rankin about his use of the Count Dante character in his novels. His fan base is pretty active and have proposed doing the "Count Dante's Ball." This could be a lot of fun. I should get some great footage from it.
"Count Dante's Ball
We will be having a special celebration of Count Danté at
the Hare and hounds pub at Preston Circus, 75
London Road, BN1 4JF.
Starting upstairs at 8pm.
Floyd Webb who is quite possibly the worlds foremost expert on Count Danté (who me?) will be joining us for the whole day. He is making a movie about the Count and wants to feature Robert and the club – and how Dimac has transcended into cult fiction. So you’ll be on film.
At the moment we are hoping to have a live band, a number of talks about Count Dante, some martial demonstrations and the usual Sproutlore raffles and what not, followed by just
drinking into the night.
The Hare and hounds is about 700 yards from Brighton Station. Hopefully people will get some
food in between times. www.thehareandhounds.co.uk
The theme is martial arts – so get the gear out!If you wish to purchase a ticket we have set up the facility online, at our Sproutshop,
Send cheques made payable to JAMES BACON to 55 Cromwell Rd.,
Croydon, CR0 2JZ, UK.
As usual we don’t accept any blame if it all goes wrong, there are limited amount of places, so please don’t expect to just get in if you turn up unannounced. Contact us if you have any queries. We have the 1st of March as a cut off date – unless you email us: firstname.lastname@example.org or call meon 07913 574618."
I will write about how it all goes.
Meanwhile. Ashida Kim has posted a video from an Austrailian TV show of him doing the Dance of Death. I have to say, ole boy is a good showman, and I think the Count himself would be proud of him because he is GOOD at it. Mike Felkoff, perfectionist that he is, says he "almost has it.
