The Answer Is 42

The 42nd annual Bubonicon science-fiction and fantasy convention will take place this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Albuquerque Grand Airport Hotel. This year’s guest of honor is writer Peter David. David is best known for his work at Marvel Comics (where he helped revive “The Incredible Hulk” in the ’80s). He also penned a few movies for Charles Band back in the Full Moon glory days. Trancers 4: Jack of Swords, Trancers 5: Sudden Deth, Oblivion and Oblivion 2: Backlash are all his work. They’re kind of crummy and kind of fun, and Oblivion does actually predate Joss Whedon’s “Firefly” as a sci-fi Western—so be sure and ask him about that. In other film-related events, the convention will screen the 2005 version of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (this being Bubonicon 42) beginning at 9 p.m. on Saturday. There will also be a late-night screening of the locally shot horror thriller Fugue State at 11 p.m. If you don’t have a day pass to Bubonicon (available online at you can get into the movie screenings for $3.

Acting on Instinct

Local actor/producer/director/writer (let’s just call her “filmmaker”) Holly Adams will teach a Meisner-based acting class this fall. The acting technique pioneered by Sanford Meisner is an evolution of “method acting” style and emphasizes improvisation as a way of creating moment-to-moment spontaneity. The intensive 16-week class runs Tuesdays, 6 to 9 p.m., Sept. 7 through Dec. 21. Class size is limited to 12 actors. Cost is $500 for a one-time upfront fee, $135 if paying monthly or $35 per week. Classes take place at Far Horizon Studios (304 Washington SE) with scene studies and monologues to be performed for an invited audience at Orpheum Arts Space. If you want to register, log on to
