November 28, 2020: Checking in!

So, how is everyone doing?  Things grow increasingly crazy out there and I'd like to know how our extended blog family is doing.  Sound off in the comments section. A little Yes/No... https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1332711243669442560 I leave you today with some behind the scene photos of my buddy, Peter DeLuise, calling the shots on Dark Matter Episode…

November 27, 2020: What to watch? What to read? What to complain about? Oh yeah!

While 2020 wasn't a great reading year for me, it has been a terrific anime year.  I finished up my 14th series today and have a few more lined up to close out December.  I considered alternating between live action and anime, but the last Netflix series I watched shit the narrative bed in explosive…

November 24, 2020: Things are coming together like the protons and electrons at the heart of a neutron star!

Success!  I have almost completed my outline for Project F.  And, as is the custom after completing a first draft, I hate it.  Once done, I'll let it sit for a few days, re-read and rewrite, and eventually grow to merely dislike it.  Then, with further reviews and tweaks, I'll progress from ambivalence to grudging…

November 23, 2020: Heads up!

Hey, Dark Matter fans, join us later today (5:30 ET, 2:30 PST) for a discussion of Dark Matter Episode 8 with the gang at Orville Nation.  Today, we'll be joined by special guest and author extraordinaire Alan Dean Foster. https://twitter.com/sgcgate/status/1330887847759532035 And in the event you missed it Stargate fans, here is my chat with Dial…

November 21, 2020: The Saturday report!

Let's kick things off with a little Yes/No... https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1330159034712924165 To be honest, the gin is the most objectionable component. Currently in rotation at my place... And you? Amazing people with whom I have worked... https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1326162208154382336 https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1326886891032096768 https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1327278040930463744 https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1328326419110359046 https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1329095107291787265  

November 20, 2020: Saturday reminders!

Came across this fabulous video of me saNompling vegan desserts... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qYRHOgmM-5Q There are a couple of times where I actually shudder. Honestly, there's not excuse for shitty desserts - even if you are vegan. Bit day tomorrow, #Stargate fans.  Tomorrow, at 3 pm. ET (Noon PT), the Brad Knight Rises!  Stargate/Travelers co-creator, showrunner, executive producer,…

November 19, 2020: Cholesterol, Earth’s Rotation, and Stargate: Atlantis!

Well, got back the results of my annual physical today.  Everything looks good (Even, surprisingly, my blood sugar!), but my cholesterol is  little high.  Comparing my ratio of Total Cholesterol to HDL over the past three years... Clearly, I was doing something right last year.  But what was it?  I mean, I'm actually working out…

November 17, 2020: Hopefully, a full blog entry this time!

For some reason, this blog has taken to auto-deleting portions of my entries so that I end up posting only a portion of what I actually write.  It happened yesterday and I ended up having to go back to my early drafts to retrieve and rectify.  Hopefully, I won't have to do that again today.…

November 16, 2020: Dark Matter fans, assemble!

A reminder that I'll be joining the gang at Orville Nation to talk about Dark Matter Episode 7 (the one with Wendy the robot!) tonight!  Come join us! https://twitter.com/nation_orville/status/1328117281814097921 Came across this article yesterday....

November 15, 2020: Suji Sunday!

Well thanks for all the well-wishes.  Suji slept through the night, ate breakfast, and seems otherwise unaffected by whatever ailed her yesterday.  Of course, I won't commence official celebrations until later tonight once it's obvious she is on the mend.  Until then - fingers crossed! Yo, Stitch! Contemplating life. Displaying remarkable tonguemanship. With her unsettled…

November 14, 2020: This might be a long night!

Someone is NOT feeling well today. Suji slept through the night and displayed her usual voracious breakfast appetite, so we assumed she was back to her old self.  After her morning walk, she settled down for her customary nap.  I was working on my outline when she suddenly sat up on her dog bed and…
