BLAB 5 Reminder

Yes!  It is tomorrow.  At my house – let’s go 7:30 for 8:00 again.  Topic reminders… Ticket To Ride in all its iterations and Seven Samurai.  If you haven’t watched Seven Samurai yet, well, you’ve only got tonight to get it done, so you’re in for a bonza night!  We’ll also have a chat about the Oscar nominations.

And, perhaps, bring a suggestion for an upcoming BLAB topic and maybe we’ll have a vote or something.

BLAB Meeting 1 – Confirmation

Barring any international incidents, Meeting 1 of BLAB will be on Tuesday, October 2nd at 19:00 with the meeting proper to commence at about 19:30.  Venue will be my house!  That’s 49 Coxley Drive, Bath BA1 6PD.

Meeting 1: Jaws and The Walking Dead

The lead-off topic for the first ever meeting of BLAB is Jaws.  We were inspired by its recent release on Blu-ray, and it seems like the perfect opener for us to chew on.  It’s a movie we’re all probably pretty familiar with, but how deep have you really gone?  Let’s really sink our teeth into it.

We’ll also have a chat about the first issue of The Walking Dead (comic).  Available for free on ComiXology; online at or the free ComiXology app for iOS and Android (did I mention it’s free?).

Meeting 1 will be (tentatively) Tuesday October 2nd, 2012 at probably 19:00 or 19:30, venue to be announced.  We’d like at least a few people to attend so this is flexible if folks can’t make it.  Let us know if this date is a problem and we’ll see what we can do.
