Space: 1999 has, par ex, Breakaway Day on Sept 13th. Other fandoms enjoy or celebrate dates related to their media… premier/release dates, in-universe dates of significance, creator birthdays etc etc.
So what are we getting up to every March 4th, and what do we call it?
Launch Day? Gizmonica? MSTie Moonday? One Giant Leapday? High tension Ascension Ostension Convention?
Do we drink an extra Killer Shrew every year, push the most-holey button named Frank, watch 2001 and utter Oh poopie at inappropriate moments, make logo moons out of jell-o molds and spray cheese, sacrifice 2 bananas for bread, mad mustache party, Raisin Snail rolling on the village green, we need some ideas here.
I do like this one, it sounds like a holiday they would have in a cheesy SciFi flick.
One of our traditions should be eating Hamdingers. I am sure we all have a case of them stored away somewhere, sorry, but other potted meat products just won’t do. And of course, I plan to engage in excessive button pushing every March 4th. I always have several old PC keyboards on hand for just such an occasion.
