Attention, all Buckaroo Banzai, Highlander, and Carnivale fans-
Clancy Brown, who starred in those films and many others, has offered up over 100 items in a charity auction- including autographed scripts, pictures, and even the opportunity to receive a telephone call from the man who played Rawhide, the Kurgan, Brother Justin, and many other roles. Many of the opening bids are reasonable for this sort of thing.
From the website:
All proceeds from The Official Clancy Brown Fan Club Charity Auction will go to benefit The Beth Brown Memorial Foundation.
The Beth Brown Memorial Foundation was formed by Clancy's parents in honor of his older sister who died of juvenile leukemia in 1964.
Bidding will begin Wednesday, May 16th, 2007 at Noon Eastern Standard Time. The auction will end Wednesday, May 30th, 2007 at 5:00 pm Eastern Standard Time.
All Bids will be updated by 6:00 pm Eastern Standard Time each evening.
Go here to check it out. I'd bid on that Banzai script, but at $200 it's already out of my league...
While I'm passing out Public Service Announcements, here's something I should have posted a couple of weeks ago-the information about how you can help out the family of the late onetime DC artist Tom Artis. You've probably already seen this at all the cooler comics blogs, but just in case you haven't, and you're in a position to help out, then it's worth it.
And of course, donations are always welcome to the Johnny Bacardi Charitable Foundation, dedicated to helping in the fight to enable JB to pay his monthly expenses. Just email me for details!
