LEGEND SOCCER COMPANY
Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

I was very disappointed about Paris, too. Not that I could have gone, since it's half-way around the world and I can barely afford to travel back and forth from work... But I'm unhappy whenever I have to announce a cancellation...

But I have lots of happier news to tell you today!

This weekend Dirk will be in Portland, OR at the Rose City Comic Con (go to https://rosecitycomiccon.com/celebrity-guests/ to see his schedule). Next weekend he'll be in Edmonton, Canada, and a couple of weeks after that in Lethbridge, then Spokane, then... (See the complete list of upcoming appearances: https://www.dirkbenedictcentral.com/f...ead.php?t=1189)

If anybody gets photos or has stories to tell from any of Dirk's appearances, let's see them!

You recall that Bluewater Productions - of specialty comic book/graphic novel fame - has produced the "Dirk Benedict in the 25th Century" comic book, right? Well, they've issued Part 2! These are great fun, and Dirk himself wrote for them as well. You can get both issues (at a good price, too) at the Comic Flea Market: https://www.comicfleamarket.com/servl...-in-the/Detail

I'm sure I'll have more soon. In the meantime, don't forget to chew!

And we're back! It was a challenge, but we think we got the problem taken care of.

Yes, we got hacked and spam emails were sent through our server, so the hosting service took the site down. We are sincerely unhappy about that and not a little ticked off - if any of you received spam emails ostensibly from this site, you have my equally sincere apologies.

And we're back just in time to remind everyone that Dirk is going to be at the Lethbridge Comic Con this next weekend! As always, if anyone comes up with pictures or stories, share them here!

More later - still picking up some pieces - but glad we're back!

And we're back with new stuff!

Yes, the hack we experienced was a lot more invasive than we thought at first, but we got it dealt with. We're also doing some upgrades and tweaks, so don't be surprised if there are a few subtle changes that happen - but the site shouldn't be interrupted again!

In the meantime - we all know Dirk is in Malta this weekend, and Pinar (who runs that Dirk Benedict fan site on Facebook) has found a brief video of him that was apparently shot yesterday:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1EaTmZBUs

Check it out!

And don't forget that next Saturday (and only on Saturday) Dirk will be at the Jet City convention in Tacoma, WA!

I am
Dawg

Fun stuff - Dirk this morning. He's in Tacoma now (he attended a showing of the theatrical release of the Battlestar Galactica pilot) and in the morning will be at the Jet City Comic Show. But this morning he did the Marty Riemer Show...

And there's video starting a few minutes into it, so watch and listen!

There's no other option than to love him. What a great and funny interview! Please, Dirk, never stop doing these radio shows.

By the way, Tacoma is such a beautiful place. Just googled it and the views to Mount Rainier are impressive.

This snippet from Malta:

makes it sound like he's saying good-bye.

Happy Trails.

Could be. A website for the Malta Comic Expo quoted Dirk saying that it would be his last convention outside the United States, though I haven't seen a video of Dirk saying it himself. He travels a lot for his fans, so it'd be understandable if he wanted to stop and do other things. If he keeps doing conventions in USA, Dawg will have news soon.

The best thing about this interview is that now we know how to pronounce Niewoehner correctly. I wasn't sure about the right accentuation before.

Dawg, that video that you mentioned a while ago of the Rose City Comic Con doesn't seem to be up yet, but there's a brief video of Dirk in that same convention talking about Fred Astaire: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8r6pP-4b0o

This little snippet from Glasgow in August, 2014, just popped up on my screen. I don't remember seeing it before and don't think it's posted. It was around this time, I think, that there was some trouble on the site, so that may be why it wasn't posted. It's very short - the beginning and ending are both missing, but it's still fun. This wasn't posted till 2018.
