Somehow I have no trouble picturing LaCroix as an evil lawyer, though he'd
probably be more at home as judge, jury, and executioner....

Subject: The Return of Forever Knight Petition (to May 28th)

Susan Field will be sending this new petition for this month to Columbia
Tri-Star, USA and Sci-fi asking for new movies, episodes, and merchandise
for the Knight. The "Dead Line" is May 28th, so please send in your names
before then. If you have already signed the monthly petition then you don't
need to send me anything. I have already transferred over those names. If
you're new and have not yet signed then I will add you to both petitions.

To sign E-mail me: kris1228@s....... with your name/state/country.

There's also a NEW banner you can post on your web sites to help spread the
word. See page for details.

Long Live the Knight!

Subject: Columbia TriStar TV will have a new President

 From an on-line entertainment news:

After eight successful years, Columbia Tristar Television announced yesterday
the soon departure of his president, Barry Thurston, on July 1st. Thurston's
contract has expired and general speculation was he would re-up. Thurston's
comments: "As I look at the television business, the communications
business, there are all sorts of opportunities out there and challenges, and
that's what I am looking for." Speculation for Thurston's replacement -
Steve Mosko, who's name was also rumored to be on the short list for the
president job at 20th.

Subject: Ribena

For anyone interested in ribena concentrate....  I was visiting the BBC
America online shop and recognized a bottle of ribena concentrate (I have two
bottles a friend brought me from England) pictured in their banner at the top
of the page.  So I did a search for it and they do sell it.  Their price is
$15 per bottle.  So if you're interested in getting ribena concentrate, this
is an easy way to get it via mail order.  Check it out at:

http://shop.bbcamerica.com/ukgoods/

and use the "Find" feature to bring it up (type in ribena).

Wow - 10 for a bottle of 'bena.  Now that's what I call dedication.  But
does it say whether it's Type O (ordinary Ribena), Type A (Ribena Lite),
Type B (Ribena Toothkind) or Type AB (No added sugar)?

All FK-viewing in my house is accompanied by the drinking of Ribena. <g>

Would you think vampires change with the times as quickly as they perhaps
should? I mean, ten years is nothing to them but in that time computers are now
in every home etc. Or do you think they may take on the air of, why bother, it
will pass. We saw LC with his laptop, but we never saw Nick with a PC...
Theories?

I think it depends on the vampire. LaCroix always (IMO) seemed to be paying
close attention to what humanity was doing, politics etc. I think that after
2000 years, watching societies rise + fall, he knows the importance of
identifying the next world power. He probably recognized computers as the next
big thing.
Actually, an old immortal like LC probably has a better idea of where we're
going with this technology than we do, or at least have a better idea of the
dangers. I mean, we think computers are great, the internet, easy work, easy
communication.... But we're not going to have to live with the consequences 150
or 500 years from now. (except for me: I'm going to live forever <g>) You don't
get to be 2000 without being able to adapt. Hmmm... I wonder how long until
technology, DNA or whatever, makes it impossible for vampires to keep on living
in secret? The Enforcers are fooling themselves to think they're going to keep
the secret forever. But back to the original topic. Humans as a whole really
don't know where we're going. We said there would be a world market of maybe
five computers, and I don't think the "billion" was just accidently left off. We
said television was just a fad that would pass. And then sound tv. And then
colour TV. Maybe we just can't imagine the world any other
way than how it is? It takes a, what's the term, removed observer to see
what's going on. The ancients are laughing at us. But because we don't know
where we're going we don't know what we're doing. If Microsoft dies we're going
to have compatibility problems all over cyberspace. Users are going to be
segregated into whatever ISP or browser or replacment for windows they use. Look
at AOL, then think of five or ten of those. Yes, the internet is great, I am
it's (almost) biggest fan, but it has a few design flaws. (not that I could ever
do better) Look what happens everytime a virus comes out. Humanity has
diffuculty seeing long term. And what we do see, shown in sci-fi, of the not so
distant future is dismissed as depressing. Some vampires (IMO) believe that it's
their world, we're just living in it. They've got it backwards. LaCroix, and
maybe some of the other ancients, realize that.

I said that it depends on the vampire. Nick, I think, sees technology with an
attitude of "It's there, so what?" Aristrole uses computers because they make
his job easier, although he's probably got money invested in Microsoft from day
ten. Vachon doesn't give it a second thought... similar to Janette, but she's
maybe a little more familiar on account of her buisiness. I'm sure she hires
someone else to do her accounting though. And explain where the "house special"
comes from. I can picture Urs being amazed, like a kid at a magic show. I don't
really know anyone else enough to guess, Bet I bet there's some out there who
are screaming witchcraft and magic and don't really believe in technology at
all!

PS doesen't anyone else notice how LC always seems to be watching us, analyzing
humanity or whatever?

LOL!  The site doesn't list bottle size, but this is the very concentrated
black currant juice that should be diluted quite a bit, just like our
favorite vamps had to choke down undiluted on the set of FK.  They should
include this in their advertising...I can see it now..."You too can be like
Geraint Wyn Davies!  Buy our ribena and experience the gut-wrenching
sweetness!"  BBC America's is the same brand is what my friend brought me
back from the UK.  My bottles are wine-bottle sized, 750 ml I think, and if I
remember correctly my friend paid about 8 for them a couple of years ago.
Probably best to email BBC America to check the bottle size before buying.
