DwarfCast 87 – Dimension Jump XIX Special

It has now been a full seven days since the start of The Official Red Dwarf Fan Club’s nineteenth convention, but the feeling of elation is yet to wear off, along with the taste of the booze and the total physical and mental exhaustion.

That bunch over at the Red Dwarf fan club, with their swanky ‘official’ title, need your help in a couple of areas. The team recently became one member (and about twenty stone) lighter, and so they are recruiting. So if you’ve ever fancied working directly with the fat hairy one from G&T and the slightly less fat, considerably less hairy one from Gayspacko Poop, now’s your chance. You’ve got just under a month to get your applications in, so do it. If you want to, like.

Also, it’s come to that exciting time when the fan club are thinking very seriously about the next Dimension Jump convention. And the first step in this process is to lazily farm out the production of an event logo to their feckless followers. On the plus side, the winning logo designer will receive a free pass to the next event, and the opportunity to own a t-shirt and/or mug with their design on it. Details and submission form are right here.

Right, now that I’ve finished whoring out prime real estate on my website for the benefit of my girlfriend’s organisation, maybe I can get a fucking cup of tea.

Now, they’re after a name for the new, re-branded, better-edited, hopefully-on-time replacement. Chairman Bull has posted a few suggestions on the fan club forums, such as sdrawkcaB, Back To Reality, Smeg, Goit and, ahem, Smegazine.
