This post will be a combination of upcoming events for the week of June 16th, as well as past news items.
🛸 Today, June 16th, the second season of Project Blue Book is out on DVD in the US and Canada. Check your local stores or wherever you order DVDs from. Alas, there is no BluRay version planned that we know of.
🛸 It’s also the day of the live Bloomsday reading. Aidan Gillen is participating in this annual Irish tradition in which James Joyce’s “Ulysses” is read. ‘This year, the tradition will be kept alive online thanks to Bloomsday Readings and Songs, which will be streaming live from Dublin, the backdrop to Joyce’s famous novel.’ You can tune into Bloomsday Readings and Songs live on IrishCentral or over on IrishCentral’s Facebook https://www.facebook.com/IrishCentral/ on Bloomsday, June 16th, at 7pm IST / 2pm EST or watch directly at YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9zJvM8gQn1k
The next Bloomsday event takes place June 20th. ‘Bloomsday in Brooklyn the annual literary pub crawl featuring readings from James Joyce will this year be presented in an online modern adaptation of the epic and far roaming Ulysses aptly titled Bloomsday Lock-in on Saturday, June 20 @ 3pm New York / Eastern time. The world premiere screening will run for one week June 20-26, 2020.’ Read more at https://irishamerica.com/2020/06/bloomsday-lock-in/
🛸 The first #SaveBlueBookSaturday event on June 13th went very well! Many fans participated, dropping a variety of memes and photomanips devoted to the series. Fans hung around for hours tweeting. While the hashtag did not trend, it did get a very healthy amount of Twitter impressions!
And we’re not giving up! The second #SaveBlueBookSaturday is scheduled for Saturday, June 20that 5:00PM NYC time, only this time it’s specifically targeted toward Netflix, which has picked up a variety of fantastic series which networks regrettably dropped, such as A&E’s Longmire and Fox’s Lucifer, to name a few. Full details are at the link below.
🛸 Lately, Michael Malarkey has been popping up on Twitter, so if you’re not following him there, you should. You can find him at https://twitter.com/mkmalarkey. He announced there that he’s doing another Twitch chat on Thursday, June 18th at 1:00pm ET. He’ll sing a song, or maybe songs, and chat with fans. It’s free to watch but to re-watch the video at your convenience, you’ll need to be a subscriber (also note the videos last only two weeks!). He’s also doing a much-anticipated musical gig, for subscribers only, on Sunday, June 21st at 3pm EDT.
🛸 And since June 21st is Michael Malarkey’s birthday, fans are discussing a big Happy Birthday celebration for him an hour before that virtual gig with the hashtag #HappyBdayMichaelMalarkey. “Of course, you’ll be free to write or share in your tweets anything you want: reasons why you love Michael, what his music means to you, share his songs or photos and videos of him and his acting roles, anything really! Just whatever you want to tell Michael how much you appreciate him and to wish him happy birthday!
Just remember to use the #HappyBdayMichaelMalarkey hashtag! Let’s fill Twitter with one full hour of love for Michael ♥️”
