The birthday fundraiser will be back this year with a start date of October 1. At this time the charity is Alex’s Lemonade Stand which raises funds for pediatric cancer research. We have raised money for them before and whenever I ask him he says “I trust you”. My reasons for choosing it are great cause,ease of donation, and more of your money goes to the charity (many of the third party sites take 3% which is fine but we are a small fund raiser so every dollar counts !). There will be several auctions and Ben told me he has something special to contribute for the auction. If you would like to contribute an item or have your own auction and donate the proceeds please do and let me know so I can spread the word !
Check the In Person page to see where you can see Ben yourself ! I have not confirmed yet he will be at Comikaze Expo in Los Angeles in October but soCal fans may want to keep that weekend (October 30-November 1) open !
I added this to the YouTube channel as well as it being available on the Clips page :

Exciting news about the premiere of Bad Kids Go To Hell , the upcoming film in which Ben has a small but important role. BKGtH is a example of the studio using social media in the right way. They launched the sites just before filming started so there was a product in place. I was unaware of this graphic novel but it seems they built on the book site successfully with the film. Hustled it at San Diego Comic Con and some other conventions. The numbers I can see on Facebook and other sites seem to be growing. The producers have made good use of youtube. Big studios need to take note.
Also a nice Farscape retrospective here.
CORRECTION OF SORTS : According to director Matt Spradlin the event in the above link is not a traditional premiere –it is a showing of the completed project to the cast and crew. So I assume this means it is not a press event so we won’t be seeing coverage or reviews.

Rumor is Ben will NOT be appearing at Comikaze this weekend. The benbrowderportal has it confirmed by Ben’s “people” but the site has no mention at this time.
*****UPDATE********* Confirmed with the Man himself –NO COMIKAZE but all is well !

Ben’s appearance at Chevron 7.7 in the UK has been cancelled(to be rescheduled in spring 2012) BUT that is good news for those attending the Comikaze Expo in LA. He will be there promoting Bad Kids Go To Hell.
