Vanishing Magicians: Francis Menotti was at the Jean Cocteau over the weekend, and amazed us all. This is the third time we've had Francis at the JCC, and he always does a great show. He performed the trick that stumped Penn & Teller, of course, along with a lot of other tricks that stumped the rest of us, including me. Always a fun time when Menotti is in time. Alas, alack, a couple of the other magic acts that we've been looking forward to -- the ones I blogged about here http://grrm.livejournal.com/528565.html -- have vanished from our schedule, at least temporarily. The astonishing Misty Lee, one of our faves, was scheduled to return on June 9-10, but she's run into a scheduling conflict with a television appearance, so we're having to push her visit back until September. And the Naked Magicians, scheduled for May 30, are gone as well. We lost our venue and partner for that one, and the Aussies are too big for our tiny JCC stage and auditorium. We still want to bring them to Santa Fe, but right now we cannot say when and where. Watch this space. So... there's a bit less magic on our schedule, for the none, but we still have some amzing special events coming up at the JCC. TERRY BROOKS will be here for an author event on June 17, and RICHARD KADREY on July 13. July 7 - 9 we have the GAME OF THRONES season 6 marathon. But much soon, do not forget, Max Headroom will be coming for our M-M-M-MAXATHON! That's May 13 - 20, with Michael Cassutt, Steve Roberts, and Matt Frewer... and my own, never before seen or heard, Max Headroom episodes. Don't miss it. #grrm #notablog

New First Look Images for Season 7: HBO has blasted out fifteen new images from the forthcoming 7th season of Game of Thrones, covering a range of the show’s key characters, many of them in their new, black-is-back fashions ahead of what’s likely to be a dark season. You can see the images in our gallery, but here’s a couple of examples to whet the appetite: Game of Thrones returns to screens on July 16 in the US, July 17 in Europe. #gameofthrones

More Author Videos: We've added two more videos from recent author events at the Jean Cocteau to the JCC website: CONNIE WILLIS, interviewed by Melinda M. Snodgrass JOHN NICHOLS, interviewed by Lorene Mills If you weren't able to be with us in person, you can check them out at http://jeancocteaucinema.com/exclusive-video/ Connie and I have known each other for decades, of course, and she's always a delight. John Nichols, however, I've only met once or twice previously, and the last time was probably twenty years ago at an event up in Colorado organized by Ed Bryant. Nichols is a fascinating man, however, and he had a lot to say. Even if you don't know his work, you should find him interesting. The video of my own talk with John Scalzi is not ready yet, but should be up soon. Autographed books by Connie Willis, Melinda Snodgrass, John Nichols, John Scalzi, and myself are all available from the JCC website, of course. Along with lots more from other authors. A recent comment from a "fan" said, in rather strong words, that he was not interested in the Jean Cocteau or anything that went on there. Fair enough. No one said you had to be. Maybe you should skip the posts with the JCC icon on top. Thing is, though, that Santa Fe cares about the Jean Cocteau... I've had many people tell me that they love our little theatre... and more to the point, I care as well. The Jean Cocteau doesn't bring me big wheelbarrows of money. Far from it. If we ever manage to get it into the black, I may die of shock. It is, however, a source of joy... for our patrons, for our city, and certainly for myself. And in the end, we all need some joy in our lives. #grrm #notablog

Scalzi in Santa Fe: Bestseller, Hugo Award winner, former SFWA president, blogger, bon vivant, and the world's leading expert on taping bacon to cats... John Scalzi is a man of many parts. He made a whirlwind visit to Santa Fe yesterday, and the Jean Cocteau was thrilled to host him. He did not actually sing in the rain. But he did play a ukulele. And he talked. And laughed. Ate a churro and some carne adovada. And signed a LOT of books. (That's me and Steve Gould with him in the picture) If you couldn't be there, hey, no problem. We'll be putting up a video of our talk. And we made him sign stock before we let him go, so you can get your autographed copies of THE COLLAPSING EMPIRE, OLD MAN'S WAR, and REDSHIRTS (winner of The Big One) from the Jean Cocteau website. http://jeancocteaucinema.com/ Next up: magician Francis Menotti. #grrm #notablog

Cool Times at the JCC: We had a great event on Saturday with John Nichols. Terrific writer and fascinating guy, whose work truly captures the sights, sounds, and spirit of Northern New Mexico. Lorene Mills did a wonderful job interviewing him. We should have the video up on the Jean Cocteau website soon. And tonight, at 7pm, we have JOHN SCALZI flying in. John's touring for his new novel, THE COLLAPSING EMPIRE, and we're thrilled to have him. See you at the theatre! #grrm #notablog
