Welcome to the Joseph Mallozzi Crime Club!

So, yesterday, I posted the following film-themed question to twitter: https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1290432469079031808 The responses I received were so great that it has inspired me to start The Joseph Mallozzi Crime Club! Moving forward (for as long as I'm able to maintain my viewing discipline)  I'll be announcing a new crime-themed movie every blog entry covering everything…

August 3, 2020: Ugly Mugs, Rom Coms, and Suji celebrity impressions!

I do love me a good midday dark cloud heavy rainstorm! Today's burning question... What is the worst mug you own? That mug that's so ugly or ill-designed you keep it in the back of the cupboard for dire emergencies only? Check out this cumbersome monstrosity. Its forward-weighted for easy tipping and the lip is…

August 1, 2020: Wow. This year is just speeding by!

Yesterday, I sent off emails to all three zoom chat winners in order to arrange a good time to convene, but only heard back from two.  Line Noise, where're you at? This pandemic has eroded my patience with people. Either that, or I've come to the revelatory realization that I don't care for them. Yesterday's…

July 31, 2020: Zoom Chat Winners Announced!

https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1289203019544846336 I mean, I'm a pretty adventurous eater but I would probably draw the line here. Things still simmering away on the projects front.  Positive baby steps with my sci-fi series, TimEscape, which is currently in network hands while another time travel-themed series overview was delivered to a different broadcaster.  Finally finished up and delivered…

July 29, 2020: It takes me three times as long to come up with a blog entry title as it does to write the actual damn entry!

Akemi: How do people get superpowers?  Do they inherit them from their parents? Me: Usually, superpowers are the result of an accident. Akemi: So, more clumsy people are superheroes? Me:  I...guess so. https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1288475203757117443 Start your kid's day off right.  This cereal will give them the energy they need to power through to recess! Yesterday's film-themed…

July 28, 2020: Who’s up for a little zoom chat?

Who's up for a little zoom chat with yours truly? If you're interested, just leave a comment in to today's blog entry.  Friday, I will choose 3 lucky to take part in a group chat where we can discuss everything from Dark Matter and Stargate to pepper preferences and my pug, Suji's bathroom habits.  The…

Happy 23, SG-1! What else you got for us? Well, I’m glad you asked…

12 years.  14 seasons.  Almost 350 episodes.  And this was probably the best thing I ever wrote for the franchise.  Lyrics and vocals by yours truly and Paul Mullie, with an assist by the lovely Peter DeLuise. It's hard to believe that it was 23 years ago today that SG-1 first graced our screens.  23…

That Original Dark Matter Ending – Dark Timeline Edition!

When I originally pitched Dark Matter, I had an ending in mind for the show, and for each of our main characters.  But as we rolled into production and the series started to take form, I ultimately decided to abandon it for something...different. I had completely forgotten about that original, bittersweet ending until I recently…

Putting together that show bible and/or pitch!

Blog regular Shawn Parrish asks: "What is in a show bible? A treatment, the pilot script, character and world histories?" Show bibles differ from show to show but, in general, they include - at minimum - a Series Overview, Character breakdowns, and Episode Summaries.  This is in the case of an existing series.  I recall…

July 22, 2020: How goes quarantine?

https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1285952624831930370 Akemi, after some consideration: ""Maybe, if someone doesn't eat sweet stuff for a while." To follow up on some of the comments and questions posted to yesterday's mailbag... Carol G writes: "Thanks for the Q & A. One question: Would you be willing to finish DM 4 & 5 m if the financing was…

July 21, 2020: Answering YOUR questions!

Alrighty.  It's been forever since I've done one of these, so let's get to it.  Opening the mailbag... Egal writes: "A while back you tweeted that you gave your old stargate behind the scenes box to MGM.  Is there any news on that?" Answer: Apparently, a lot of the digital files I sent over were duplicates…
