    YVONNE CRAIG aka "BATGIRL" (1937-2015) MEMORIAL SHOW

    in Entertainment

    In 1967, William Dozier, creator of the Batman television series, concerned that the show’s ratings were falling, decided to introduce a female character on the side of law & order in an attempt to attract new viewers. He came up with Batgirl, who would help Batman & Robin in their crusade against the malign forces of “guest villains”. For this role, on a par with the caped crusader & the boy wonder, Dozier cast Yvonne Craig. Although Craig, who has died at 78, had then been acting in films and television for a decade, Batgirl gave Yvonne her greatest fame.


    The Dynamic Duo became the Tremendous Trio when Craig first appeared in Enter Batgirl, Exit Penguin, aired on 14 September 1967, the start of the 3rd & last season. As Barbara, the librarian daughter of Commissioner Gordon, she's kidnapped by the Penguin, who bullies her into agreeing to marry him. However, unknown to everyone except Alfred, the faithful butler of the billionaire philanthropist Bruce Wayne, Barbara has a secret crime-fighting identity. Inevitably, she escapes from the Penguin, & rescues the astonished Batman & Robin, who have been hopelessly strung up in the Penguin’s lair. Dressed in a tight-fitting purple and yellow bat outfit with pointy ears, & riding a purple, lace-trimmed motor Batcycle, Craig, playing it straight, immediately entered into the campy, satiric tone of the series. She was also able to match her two co-stars in the self-defence department, accompanied by such onomatopoeic on-screen graphics as POW!, WHAM! and CRR-ASH!.


    “I think that they ultimately chose me because of my ballet background,” Craig recalled. “Though they didn’t want me to do my own stunts, I finally talked them into it.”


    Join Richard with his special guest host, Robert Amberry, president of the Yvonne Craig Appreciation Society, in this special tribute to Yvonne and her career.

    Buccaneers, Corsairs, Explorers, Pirates, Privateers, and Much More, Part III

    in Culture

    “Piracy is typically an act of robbery or criminal violence at sea. The term can include acts committed on land, in the air, or in other major bodies of water or on a shore. It does not normally include crimes committed against people traveling on the same vessel as the perpetrator (e.g. one passenger stealing from others on the same vessel). The term has been used throughout history to refer to raids across land borders by non-state agents.”


    “Piracy or pirating is the name of a specific crime under customary international law and also the name of a number of crimes under the municipal law of a number of states. It is distinguished from privateering, which is authorized by national authorities and therefore a legitimate form of war-like activity by non-state actors. Privateering is considered commerce raiding, and was outlawed by the Peace of Westphalia (1648) for signatories to those treaties.”


    “Those who engage in acts of piracy are called pirates. In the 21st century, the international community is facing many problems in bringing pirates to justice.” ~ Courtesy of Wikipedia.org

    A Night Of Ashes and Ghosts Episode

    in Entertainment

    The Dungeon Crawlers Team welcomes to the show Thomas Beckett who will be talking about Night of Ashes. Night of Ashes is a Theatrical Prequel to Hell's Rebels, the current Pathfinder Adventure Path from Paizo Publishing which takes place during the events immediately preceding In Hell's Bright Shadow, the first adventure in Hell's Rebels. Working with the Paizo team, we are using NPCs, locations and plot points from the Adventure Path to recreate the traumatic events leading up to Barzillai Thrune's take over of the city of Kintargo.


    The show centers on a young Hellknight who is conflicted between her commitment to the Law and her commitment to her City. When Grand Inquisitor Thrune orders her companion killed and an entire Opera Company arrested alongside a young Baron, she is forced to keep the actors from further harm and lead them to safety. The survival of this small band intermingle with the machinations of the arch villain of the Adventure Path.


    The show will be as audience interactive as possible and feature steel on steel fight choreography by an award-winning local fight choreographer.


    The Kickstarter launches 8/27/2015
    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/346863196/1232471340?token=51be328a.


    Then the Dungeon Crawlers Team will wrap up the show with the Ghostbusters of Salt Lake.


    The Ghostbusters of Salt Lake, organized in 2007, are Utah's premier professional paranormal investigators and eliminators.
    You're likely to run into the GB's of SLC at screenings, comic and sci/fi conventions, costume parties, and charity events.
