Blind Lemming Chiffon, David Anthony Durham, Geoff Ryman, Patrick Nielsen Hayden
Panel just about to start.
Blind Lemming Chiffon speaks for a while; Patrick Nielsen Hayden appeals to a high power for salvation.
David Durnham & Geoff Rymam begin to appear concerned.
Patrick looks at Blind Lemming wondering if this guy is for real.
Geoff Ryman touches his forehead just before putting his head down on the table.
Someone in the audence asks, "Is this some kind of tradition?" Someone else says, "No, this is not a tradition. It is surreal."
The footage cuts off with the end of the song when more of the audience flees. Footsteps are heard in the halls.
