Subject: GK *HELP!!!*
I've been asked for copies of reviews I wrote of two of Greg Kramer's plays -
JOEY SHINE (would have been around mid to late February 1997) and RED RIVER
(October 1998). For some reason, I never posted a review or report of the
latter to the Ratpack egroups list, and the former was pre-egroups. I've gone
through several computers since then and lost all my files at one point so I
no longer have copies.
If anyone has my reports on seeing these plays, could you forward them to me
off list? I know some people save all mail and I'm hoping beyond hope someone

Subject: Attn. Ger fans: Gift Idea
I was cruising Celtic related sites and happened to come upon one called
"Wales Direct" which sells Welsh products online. While browsing through
their merchandise I happened upon something that might make a nice gift for
Mr. Wyn-Davies: A Welsh edition of Monopoly. Just thought I'd pass it along.
The web site is at
<A HREF="http://www.wales-direct.co.uk/direct_frame.html">Welcome to Wales
To get to the game click on "English" then in the next screen click on
"Store Directory" then scroll down on the menu that appears, the game
is listed about a fourth of the way down.
Lots of other nifty stuff at the site too.

Subject: Exit: Stage... Knight? (WAS: Re: FK in Spanish)
My Spanish isn't even up to "Sesame Street" level, so please excuse if the
premise makes absolutely no sense at all...
Barbara Stone's post of the Spanish FK intro included the phrase:
>"salir de su noche eterna"
"Exit from his eternal night?"
Why does that make me think of The Door in the Desert of "Near Death", with
a big red and white sign above it?
(insert red emergency light above, and blinking of sign if necessary)
> >In fact I love that so much...I think I want it on a hat!
(picturing Barbara -- I've know idea what she looks like, mind you! -- with
a baseball cap with the word "USHER" on it, waving a flashlight at
knightshirt Nicky, trying to get him to check out what's behind Door Number
One... and Lacroix, without eyelids, in a bellhop uniform, trying to show
Nick to a couch that clashes with the knightshirt, with the back of the
bellhop uniform sporting in large letters, "Huis Clos"*)
Rose Thatcher writes, of the hat:
>Ohhh, that *would* be fun, wouldn't it?
*For those who haven't read it, "Huis Clos" ("No Exit") is a Sartre play in
which three recently-deceased persons are condemned to share a room in
Hell. The guide who shows them to their room has no eyelids; the room has
three couches. One of the condemned insists on having the couch that
clashes least with her coloring. Those who take record of interesting
parallels might want to note that in the climax of "Huis Clos" , one of
the (already-dead) characters tries to kill one of her roommates with a
letter opener... sorta like Nick trying to dispatch LC with the flaming
stake in DK!
Eh, ben... continuons.

Subject: Another FK Moment
Whilst driving through a Confederate Cemetery this past weekend (not far from
Kennesaw Mt in GA), I was startled to see the following:
1843 - 1889
Was this an unsung, poignant period in our Crusader's life? She lived to be 46.
It also made me reminiscent of "Highlander's" Connor and his Blossom....

Interesting! And why was she "Hallie Harrison," not "Hallie Knight?" Was this
common, to put a woman's unmarried name on her headstone? Or I wonder, did she
remarry after Nick faked his own death and left town? Obviously Mr. Harrison
didn't live up to Nick, since he's not mentioned on the stone. <g>

That was Heather, not Blossom. (Geesh! The one bit of HL trivia I know! <g>)

It's not unusual in the south. In fact, my mother's headstone, which I
ordered, reads "Rita Laura Horton, wife of J.R. McDavid," because she'd
been a genealogist and used to get so frustrated that sometimes inscriptions
didn't tell you who the wife was. That is, her middle and maiden names..
Traditionally southerners have placed emphasis on middle names because they
were chosen to link both sides of a family. That's why so many southerners,
including me, have their mother's maiden names for their middle names.
McLisa, who just got hired and will start a new job as a cataloger at a
seminary on Dec. 1st. McLisa with easy access to a reference library again.
Be afraid, be very afraid! :)

Either is possible, though as you state below, no Mr. Harrison is mentioned.
At least on some of my family's headstones, it is common to see the woman's
first and maiden names (sometimes the middle as well) only, then "wife of"
below that. It was unheard of for a woman to keep her maiden name, so it
would be "known" her married last name was that of her husband.
In the case of someone who was married and widowed, then remarried, both (or
more, if there were more) of the husbands might be mentioned.
In the case of a child or even an adult who'd never married, it might say,
"Child's name" followed by "son (or daughter) of..." then list the parents'
Now, what I want to know is whether or not Nick ever faked his own death,
followed by his own headstone in a cemetery somewhere! Does he have multiple
graves under various assumed names, or did he always just disappear into the
night, never to be seen again leaving friends to wonder what happened. Until
recently, it was common for family members, even siblings, to lose total
contact - and it still does happen even in the age of telephones, computers
and the Red Cross.
Did some poor woman ever sit in a window, sighing away her life waiting for
her one true love to return??? Rather like the Baldwin sisters on THE
WALTONS? (Does anyone get that reference?)

Subject: Blitzing for the Knight November
This is just a reminder for this month's blitz. New to the list or need to
see the info again? See below...
This entire month we are focusing on three powers that be, Tristar, Sci-fi,
A lot of FK fans have wondered why we don't approach other networks about
possibly reviving the series. Well, we will continue to include TNT, and of
course Sci-fi and Tristar.
(and place in the subject line: "To The Attention Of The Vice-President of
You also may call TNT's Viewer Comment and Question Line at (404) 885-4538,
however we ask that any phone calls be in addition to letters and e-mails.
For snail mail, send to:
Vice-President of Programming
TNT 1010 Techwood Drive, NW
Atlanta, GA 30318
Its going to be a big dose of e-mails from each of you the fans that would
love to not only have FK back on Sci-fi's schedule, but want to make sure
everyone knows that we are want more FK with the original cast in new
episodes and or movies!! So, what do you say? Are you ready to sit down,
take that few minutes and send off three e-mails? It could make all the
difference in the world!
Remember, say a little or say a lot, but say it!! We can make more FK
For the "whole" month of November, we are asking everyone to blitz the
feedbacks!!! For the month, you can re-use the e-mails you did before, or
write new ones. They can be long, or as short as just saying, "Bring Back
Important info to add in your letters: During this current blitz, we could
ask that an upcoming "SCIography" ep feature FK! So far, they plan to do eps
on "Battlestar Galactica", "Quantum Leap" and "Sliders", so asking them if
they plan to do a "SCIography" ep about FK can't hurt.
Also, Sci-Fi is airing "Sci-Fi World", which is a 6 hour block of sci-fi
programs with a different theme each day. It's also possible to ask them if
FK will be a part of the "Sci-Fi World" programming block!
ALSO REMEMBER!! Sci-fi will be changing its schedule around again soon....
lets make sure that we get Forever Knight on!!!
Sci-Fi's E-mail: feedback@w.......
Sony/Tristar Mail Form: http://www.spe.sony.com/spe/help_feedback_index.html
When e-mailing TriStar,(especially) give as much personal info as you
can...rather than just an e-mail name. A bit more personal carries more
weight with TPTB.
There's also a button, I made, which you can post on your websites to spread
the word about the blitzes. Have it link to my "save fk" page.
Long Live the Knight!
