Here is our live recording at Balticon 50 where we discuss several big “What If’s”.. What if Ned had gone to the wall? What if Sansa had taken up with Brienne? What if Sir Pounced saved Tommen? OK, maybe not that last one..
Oh and don’t let the photo fool you. While Chooch and Viv met him in the bar, George was not able to attend our panel.
We were able to get together between panels at Balticon to record a discussion of episode 6. Unfortunately Viv was working on a project for the New Media Party and could only check in with us for a minute here and there.
There will be no episode of Beyond The Wall posted this week due to preparation for Balticon. We’ll be recording a live panel discussion (not about episode 6), and hope to find the time to record an in-person discussion of episode 6 sometime during the weekend.
I’ll get everything posted as soon as I can once we return from Balticon.
Balticon was wonderful this year (as always). We did a Beyond the Wall Live Show, which was a lot of fun once again. I’ll let Nutty and Viv add some details in the comments, but all in all I consider it a success. 🙂
I am now working on audio for episode 7, 8, and the Balticon Live Show. Each will be released as soon as I’m done with it.
Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend, and we’ll see you next Wednesday night for our Live Hangout for Episode 9!
A few weeks ago I commissioned a piece of art from Natalie Metzger. It turned out AWESOME, and if you are greatly inspired you can purchase t-shirts and whatnot over at Spreadshirt.com.
If you see a product over there, or over at Zazzle.com that you’d like to see with this awesome art, just let me know and I’ll make it happen. Thanks!!
So at 8 pm on Saturday we’ll be recording a very special episode of Beyond The Wall. It’ll be our normal discussion format, but with a live audience at Balticon 46 in Hunt Valley, MD.
We’ll be live. We’ll attempt to be funny. We’ll be giving away prizes. We’ll be inebriated (most likely), especially if we play the Game of Thrones Drinking Game. If you are nearby, please come out and see us!
In addition, I (P.G. Holyfield) will be on some other panels during the convention:
Saturday 10 pm – Dramatization or Straight Read (Salon B) Sunday 9 am – Religious Systems (Salon B) Sunday 9 pm – Stargazers audio Drama (Derby) Sunday 10 pm – Reading (Chase) Monday 11 am – Serialized Science Fiction – the New Pulps (Derby)
Balticon is my favorite convention of the year. It’s small, it’s intimate, and it’s fun. Seriously… you know you want to come.
Viv is the co-host of the now four year old Into the Blender podcast with her husband Chooch, and her occasional all-female podcast is called Girls\\™ Rules. She is a contributor to the SpecFicMedia site, and co-host of their Beyond the Wall Podcast, which discusses the HBO Game of Thrones series. Her personal blog is called Vivid Musings.
Viv has been a panelist at Balticon for 3 years and Dragon*Con one year. She is the Manager of the TuacaCon Musical Guest of Honor, Ditched by Kate.
Viv started up Vivid Muse Creations, LLC this year to support all the amazing creative types she’s met over the years. The first major undertaking is launching a small publishing house that will release a breast cancer anthology next summer, with all proceeds going to breast cancer charities. They are accepting written and artistic submissions until December 15, 2011.
Pocket Mom Forever!
Viv will be providing a reading of the story that inspired the anthology during TuacaCon.
