Join us on 8/25/12 for Doctor Who at the Paley Center for Media in NYC!!

Doctor Who: Spearhead from Space

http://www.paleycenter.org/2012-doctor-who-screenings-8-25

Come see a screening of Doctor Who: “Spearhead from Space,” (8/25) the first episode with third Doctor Jon Pertwee, and have a chance to win one of two pairs of tickets to BBC AMERICA’s screening of the Doctor Who season-seven première “Asylum of the Daleks.”

The Paley Center For Media is located at 25 W. 52nd Street, New York, NY 10019

Travel with us through time and space as The Paley Center for Media and BBC Home Entertainment present this special series of classic Doctor Who screenings on the last Saturday of each month from June to September 2012. These screenings will feature the digitally remastered episodes in the best way: on the big screen, with big sound, and the Doctor Who community.

There will also be Doctor Who trivia with the chance to win DVDs and more from BBC Home Entertainment.

I plan on arriving at noon. If anyone wants to meet up earlier for breakfast or just coffee. Let me know in the comments either here or click here for the Facebook event page.

It’ll be an epic way to start the weekend and one of the last chance you may have to win tickets to the “New Who” season 7 première! Don’t forget last year’s première when Matt, Karen, and Arthur showed up with donuts for everyone! Plus, the screening was hosted by the cast and Steven Moffat!

How to get the Mass Effect 3 "Space Edition" a week early!

Okay, I’ll start by admitting that this isn’t an easy task. I think from the reports I’ve read, there will only be 5 copies of this ultra special edition in existence.

EA reports that they will be releasing copies of the game into the upper atmosphere via weather balloon, which will include a camera and a GPS tracking device which you can follow on http://www.masseffect.com (there will most likely be updates on their twitter account as well @MassEffect.

The balloons will be launched from New York (I’ll be watching that one), San Francisco, Las Vegas, Berlin, London and Paris. The exact date of the launch and expected touchdown have yet to be revealed. They simply advertise the opportunity to get the game a week early, so I expect it will be sometime next week (Feb 23rd to March 3rd, 2012). I expect, if you’re interested, that it’s best to keep tabs on the site and twitter feed.

Personally, I think this is some pretty damned rad marketing and you can bet your sweet bippy (if you DO, let me know, my bippy was kind of sour and I threw it away), that I’ll be tracking the NY copy and have my sneakers sitting on at all times, ready to bolt out at a moment’s notice, haha.
