As you may recall, we recently ran a contest on social media with the prize being two tickets to For the Love of Spock‘s opening night at Old Greenbelt Theatre. Our winner, Don Klees, took his young son with him for the premiere, and they both had a fantastic time!
If you’re a member of the InterventionCon Fans group on Facebook, you can read Don’s thoughts on the film here. If you’re not… well, first off, we’d love to have you join! But we’ve also posted a small piece of it below:
Above all, For the Love of Spock is the story of a life lived fully on and off the screen. By Leonard Nimoy’s own admission, for much of his life, he had “a major in career and a minor in family”, but the film makes it abundantly clear that his devotion to his family was the driver of his focus on that career. This commitment, combined with embodying a character who – despite what many (foolishly) labeled a satanic appearance – represents the better angels of human nature, suggests that posterity will look as favorably on Leonard Nimoy the man as it will on the character of Mister Spock. It’s hard to imagine a better tribute to Star Trek and the hopeful vision it depicts as the series celebrates its 50th birthday.
For more information on For the Love of Spock and to download it from iTunes, visit the official website. Check your local theatres for showtimes, and if you’re in Maryland, consider visiting our friends at the Greenbelt!

Intervention Con: Replicating the Online Experience in a Con
Click here to read the Interview.
Our kickoff of our 2011 promotional tour kicked off early January at Arisia. I realized that while I did livetweet most of this, I never blogged it.
(BTW: IF you don’t follow me on Twitter here is where you can do that. :D ) If you don’t follow Intervention’s Twitter, that is located here.
Some of the photos are grainy because I took them with this:
Then I started having so much fun that I forgot to take a LOT of photos. (Oops!) Here are some:

The beginning of the party before I forgot to take more photos:
Owls that were for sale at the table. Want one? You can order an owl of your own online before, after, or during when you register. :D
Check out the right sidebar on this site! I’ve updated it with some tour dates for our 2011 promotional tour! We feel that Intervention is a year-round thing, so what better way to continue the party than to come out and support some of the other cons?
Our first date is Jan 14-16, 2011 at Arisia in Boston, MA. We will have an Intervention table and an awesome room party with plenty of mayhem. Harknell and I will be there of course.
Next it will be Feb 18-20, 2011 at Katsucon in National Harbor, MD.
Following that will be Mar 18-20, 2011 at Zenkaikon in King of Prussia, PA!
At all of these dates we will have a table and Intervention related fun! This is just the beginning of many tour dates that will lead right into Intervention 2011. I’ll keep you informed as dates and plans firm up. Till, then, hope to see some of you at Arisia!
Let us know if there is a con near you that we should be at. We will try to make it happen!
