February 18, 2020: Montreal Day #6!

Going a little stir crazy here in Montreal.  But, at least, I'm getting stuff done.  I've read four books and two graphic novels, written twenty-five pages of the new TimEscape script, and just had a call regarding that horror script.  They asked me if I wanted to direct and, while interesting, it's not something I've…

I knew instantly – it wasn’t a shrimp shell!

Last night, I attended a dinner party hosted by my old high school buddy, Lawrence, and his wife, Mel.  We were enjoying a nice take-out meal from a nearby restaurant.  Halfway through supper, Lawrence, seated beside me, suddenly pulled something out of his mouth and uttered a shocked: "What is THIS?!".  A hush fell over…

February 15, 2020: Montreal Day #3!

My recent internet searches have included: "perfect murder", "fake your own death", and "how to get rid of a dead body".  This morning, it was: "nuclear fusion", "heavy water", and "missile guidance systems".  I wonder if whoever monitors online activity bothers to cross-reference search topics with a surfer's profession.  It's research for this new script.…

February 14, 2020: Like Bill Murray on his 30th Groundhog Day loop!

My sister's dogs are bed hogs.  Kona likes to sprawl out in the middle of the mattress while Ralphie is given to pacing around at night and burrowing under the covers.  They must have awakened a good half dozen times between 5-7 a.m., anxiously looming over me in expectation of an early breakfast.  Every time…

February 10, 2020: I’m Team Habanero!

https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1226954624650956805 I love spicy.  Always have.  The heat, obviously, but also the flavors of the varied peppers simmering beneath that deep fire kick.  The bottom shelf of my refrigerator is occupied by my hot sauce collection (much to Akemi's chagrin) with names like Brain Damage, Memento Muerte, and Howler Monkey.  Although I have a high…

February 8, 2020: Serial killer, you say?

Majority of serial killers are Taurus, study claims I am not in the least surprised. "Is your friend a Taurus? Does he or she obsess over murder and watch way too much “CSI”? There’s a good reason to be wary now." And yet it's always the same.  Whenever police catch a serial killer, the neighbors…

February 7, 2020: Sliding on over…

Scientists are searching for a mirror universe.  It could be sitting right in front of you. What's this?  On the heels of our discussion about seeking out a new timeline comes this article from NBC News on the search for a mirror universe!  Coincidence?  Maaaaybe.  OR - maybe not!  Is this a sign?  Some echo…

February 6, 2020: The Evening Edition!

Took a HUGE schnitz today at Country Style Hungarian Restaurant.  As did my friend Robbie.  Akemi opted for the cabbage roll.  It has been a while.  In fact, now that I think on it, I believe the last time I had schnitzel was at The Black Forest Inn in Hamilton during Dark Matter's third season.  It…
