Hey, check out the new video addition to this blog featuring extra special guest star…that Dallas Cowboys fan. No, no, no. Not Robert Cooper. The OTHER Dallas Cowboys fan.

So I was contacted by one of those email scammers with news that I had been chosen at random to receive the princely sum of $950 000. I wrote back as one of my numerous aliases – in this case, Baron Destructo, head of the League of Aliens and Mutants for Evil bent on global domination – little imagining I’d receive a response. Well, I received plenty. In fact, over the past few days, Baron Destructo has received a number of emails from one Martin Holme, ever eager to secure the Baron‘s personal information or, at the very least, $200 cash. Alas, Baron Destructo doesn‘t deal in cash and instead offered to loan Mr. Holme his choice of one of five super items: fire gauntlets, rocket boots, a chameleon cloak, a helm of fortitude, or tickets to see Neil Sedaka at the Mirage. Well, this morning, I found the following sitting in my inbox:

“ATTN: Baron Destructo,

This is to acknowledged the receipt of your email regarding your Payment . We prefair option two the five options that you have been given to us wich says

Rocket Boots: Fly around the city! Buzz news choppers! Catch the big game from the best seat in the house AND then beat traffic home! A great way to check out the exosphere (note: if you do, dress warmly).

I wait for your urgent response as soon as you receive this email.”

Hmmm. Baron Destructo wrote back:

“Dearest Human Rubbish,

An excellent choice! The rocket boots will serve you well for the last two weeks of your worthless existence!

With regard to the delivery of said rocket boots, please choose from the following options:

1. If you happen to find yourself in the lunar area, feel free to drop by our Fortress of Depravity moonbase. Be sure to call ahead so that we can arrange for you to join one of the daily tours which will include: a guided walkthrough of the facilities, a ride in a shadow scram jet, a complimentary drink ticket and photo op with a super villain of your choice (subject to availability), and access to our gift shop where you may purchase exclusive League of Aliens and Mutants for Evil merchandise including t-shirts, posters, and commemorative plates.

2. If you do not foresee yourself in the area any time in the near future, might I suggest we meet at any of our following Earthen sanctums:

A. Disneyland – Anaheim, California. Our subterranean lair is conveniently located beneath the Chip ‘n Dale Treehouse attraction. Ask Goofy for details.

B. High Point, North Carolina at the site of the world’s largest chest of drawers. Our headquarters are situated in the second drawer from the top, directly above the one with the gigantic dangling socks.

C. Shibuya Love Hotel – Tokyo, Japan. Come find us in the Pantieless Pirate theme room.

D. The Bramah Tea and Coffee Museum in London, England. Visit the tea room and ask to see Death Knell.

E. Restaurant La Vieille Chausettte – Paris, France. Dine or die in style at this 5 star eatery. Sample Cordon Bleu-trained Master Chef Brutus Badly’s famed foie gras-stuffed squab, profiteroles au chocolat, and electric death whip.

Let me know which works best for you.

Thank you for keeping the dream alive.

Sincerely,

Baron Destructo

Well, as it turns out, Martin Holme is a very industrious fellow. Besides trying to land himself a pair of rocket boots, he is also trying to finagle some cash from one of my other aliases. My Margaret Quibble yahoo account received a follow-up to her sad tale of domestic apathy, bingo gone awry, and a kidnapping:

“This is to acknowledged the receipt of your email regarding your Payment . We have just received your prize payment File a while ago from the lottery committe.Before i go on i will like to clarify you on this exersice…”

A thrilled Ms. Quibble wrote back:

“Dear Mr. Holme,

This money couldn’t have come at a better time. The ransom payment my husband’s kidnappers requested amounts to exactly $950 000 and, while I’m in no hurry to see Melvin back home, I am interested in questioning him about some Costa Rican beachfront property I discovered in his secretary’s name.

If you could, would you be so kind as to deal with the kidnappers directly. Please direct any further correspondence to:

Mr. Kidnapper at melvinskidnappers@yahoo.com

Thank you,

Margaret Quibble”

Anonymous #1 writes: “You mentioned a huge ending for season 4 which will be a good pick up for season five but if there is no season five will you just leave the fans hanging?”

Answer: I’m not in a position to make any promises, but I’m fairly certain that we’ll find a way to answer most of those unanswered questions.

Zabadoo writes: “1.)Will there be any more Batman references this season? 2.)How long is Teal’c in Reunion? What about Midway? 3.)Who is the least developed character in the fourth season?”

Answers: 1) Yes. 2) He’ll make a cameo in Reunion and put in a full appearance in Midway. 3) Chuck.

Chevron 7 writes: “Did he get rid of the pony tail?”

Answer: Yup and Carl was soooo disappointed.

Sanura writes: “Was the Sedge in “The Real World” Torri’s dog?”

Answer: Yep.

Dsbeerf writes: “Thanks for not mentioning to Jason what I said about him wearing glasses in the picture you snapped. I am glad I did not have to spend long months in the hospital.”

Answer: Not yet anyway. Jason has been kind of busy but he’s sworn a blood oath to get you. Just saying.

Vikitty writes: “Will you be going to Nibbles & Bites in Richmond in September?”

Answer: Maybe. What is it?

Atlantis babe34 writes: “Hey Joe, Im going to Hong Kong at the end of the year. Got any Nice resturants?”

Answer: Kowloon: The Peninsula Hotel’s restaurants (Felix and Gaddi’s) delivers terrific high-end fare. Spring Moon, also in the Peninsula, is a great place for dim sum. Spoon, an Alain Ducasse restaurant located at the InterContinental, is also wonderfully creative. Finally, the Aqua Restaurant Group (http://www.aqua.com.hk/) offers up superior food in a stylish setting with gorgeous views of Hong Kong Harbour. I highly recommend both Aqua and Hutong. If you do Hutong, order the deboned lamb ribs and, if you’re feeling brave, the soft shell crab with red chilis. Hong Kong Island: The Island Shangri-La offers an unbelievable morning buffet and direct access to Pacific Place, a great shopping and entertainment complex where you’ll find, among many other things, two great casual restaurants: Ye Shanghai and Basil. A couple of other restaurants I’ve heard very good things about include: Opia (1-5 Irving St, Jia Hotel), Man Wah (5 Connaught Rd, Mandarin Oriental Hotel)and Yunk Kee which is famous for its roast goose (32 Wellington Street, Central).

Linzi writes: “Will we learn about Sheppard’s parents? That is to say, will we find out if they’re dead or alive?”

Answer: We will.

Namiko writes: “ Where do you think the Raiders will go this season?”

Answer: Sadly – probably nowhere.

Vern writes: “It’s my birthday on the 27th and I want the blog dedicated to me.”

Answer: Happy Birthday. Today’s blog entry is dedicated to you and Cheeky. And the League of Aliens and Mutants for Evil.

Answer: Nope.

  1. A bug or something? Photo is a little red X (broken link) and all questions are one huge run-on paragraph 😉

  2. Video? Perhaps I can’t see it for looking…. then again maybe I just can’t find it. Where is it?

  3. 1) I can see that you guys are gonna be rushed for the finale as you guys are gonna film it AFTER the season goes on the air? 2) is that good or bad? 3) how long does it take to flim one eposide? 4) how much is a one way ticket to the set from Atlanta?

  4. I don’t see a vid! Was there really one?

    Today’s my 16th anniversary and not only did I forget (hubby called and reminded me) — I know, shameful — but I wound up getting 3 stitches in my back and two hours of sleep last night. Surely karma has to give back for such a crummy day!

    So, umm, be my karma. Pics of Joe and David on set, pretty please?

    *please please please*

    (see me not even asking for a dedication, I’m just a pic pleader!)

  5. Joe I was Watching season 4 and i was wondering how Atlantis took off in the final episode. Because in (The return part 2) they damaged the star drive to stop the Replicators from flying the city and i do not recall it being repaired.. Your response would be greatly appreciated. AR

  6. Well count me in for the Tau’ri Book Club, I’ve just brought my copy of Excession today. I have two weeks leave and I intend to read and write my way through them.

    SGA 4 starts on 8th of October here in the UK. YEAH!

    Pauline

  7. Hey Joe! Check out an account and a few pics from Day 1 of my vacation here. The best stuff comes later, I can assure you.

    Um…where can I find the vid?

  8. 1. Will Sam have a bigger role in Season 5? 2. Will Jack be mentioned at all (the engagement question comes to mind)? 3. Will McKay make any moves on Sam, a la Redemption and 48 Hours? 4. Will any of the former SG-1 be mentioned or appear on Atlantis? 5. Any lemon threats for McKay? My mutant side thanks you.

  9. Speaking of backstories, what about McKay? I mean, we know he has a sister, but I’ll never forget how in 48 hours he spills both that his parents argued a lot and blamed him, and he loved to play piano. Are either quality ever going to make an appearance?

    Also, out of all the fantasy books that you have read, which is your favorite.

    And one last question: I just rewatched Duet (for probably the millionth time!) and what was the inspiration for the episode, especially McKay/Cadman’s dramatic kisses of both Katie and Carson? And speaking of Katie, I hope she comes back! Watching McKay interact with someone who isn’t a member of his team is ALWAYS entertaining!

  10. Is Kavanaugh just as big of a cowardly turn this season as he always has been? Or did he grow some balls?

  11. Thank-You so much for your wonderful updates on the letters to the spammers.

    Stupid question (well not stupid, but…) why doesn’t our favorite Atlantians use Zat guns on people. Wouldn’t this temporarily solve a lot of problems, or am I way too thinking of this.

  12. Anonymous said…

    Don’t you remember? He hasn’t got any, Weir cut them off!

  13. Did someone say Dallas Cowboys? I’m always amazed when people far far away are big fans of the Cowboys.

    The stadium is a mere 15 minutes from here, and yet I haven’t ever been to a game. The new stadium being built next to the gorgeous baseball ballpark in Arlington is about 25 minutes from here. ‘Here’ means just north of downtown.

    The city of Dallas dropped the ball on getting the new stadium built in Dallas proper. So now the city of Arlington (one of the cities between Dallas and Ft. Worth) will have the Cowboys in addition to the Texas Rangers baseball team. Poor long-term business decision on the part of the City of Dallas.

  14. Woo hoo to the Cowboys’ fans! It’s always nice to know there’s others out there.

    Martin Holme picked what I would’ve chosen. I hope you have his boot size! 🙂

  15. Hi Joe 🙂

    Thanks for the video awesome… For all who can’t see it you click on the date… it goes to another website and should just play automatically.

    On the lines of Steph’s question about Duet. I had a question about Sunday, maybe not a question but I noticed that when the gate is dialing earth we only hear 5 or 6 chevrons lock, doesn’t it take 8 to get home??

  16. Nibbles and Bites has really gone downhill. Instead, head down to Steveston this Saturday for Sardine Festival.

  17. Here’s some info on Nibbles & Bites: Click!

    It’s an outdoor event where you basically get to test food from different restaurants/food establishments. I’m not sure if any four star restaurant participates- infact, I doubt it. But it’s an annual thing that’s really popular with the locals.

  18. League of Alients and Mutants for Evil, mm?

    So’s LAME accepting applications or something? ‘Cause I imagine that’d be fairly nifty to have on a business card. And not just the LAME moniker, but who whole ‘evildoer’ bit.

    Seriously, I’ve been looking for practical applications for this Biology degree I’ve been working on, and so far, I’d say this is the most viable.

  19. 1.)Have you seen Hewlett’s movie “A Dog’s Breakfast”? Is it good?
    2.)Do you think Paul would play a good Scottie?
    3.)Which do you prefer: Batman, Superman or Spiderman? (I pick Batman)
    4.)Did you like Batman:The Animated Series or have you even seen it?
    5.)Have you caught up with Lost yet? The finale is the best one yet.

    A BIGGER role? Like 14 episodes isn’t enough, for crying out loud.

    I’d personally like to see her offed as wraith fodder. I’ve never liked a character less. She’s the reason I won’t be watching.

  21. LOVE the video, Joe! 🙂

    But…but…Paul…the Cowboys?! Nooooooooooooooooooo! ;P

    Yup, 14 eps isn’t enough and one post is too much. ;P

    Enjoy your extra free hour per week to sit around and hate. What are you going to loathe when you aren’t watching SGA? Are you gonna share that with us?

    few more logs
    the fire

  22. So, I received one of those incredible offers you’ve been raving about, and in fact my e-mail says that “no one else is aware of [his] proposal” to me!! Should I be honored? Should I be insulted that the e-mail was addressed “Dear Sir” when I’m so clearly a lady? Should I waste my time replying like you have? Do you get a sense of comeuppance by replying like that?

  23. Will we see Sheppard have any pets? Maybe a chimp or an orangutan that smokes cigars and plays guitar at the same time? And probably skate and golf better due to it acrobatic physiology.

  24. Hi Joe!
    Have you heard of Dr. Bob’s ice cream? As a custom ice-cream chef yourself do you feel the price $90 for six pints of ice cream is worth it? Or am I better off attempting to create my own ice creams? (while working at coldstone- worstjobever -the process of making ice cream didn’t look TOO difficult, just very large scaled). While on the topic of ice creams, do you ever eat non-gourmet ice creams (ie Haagen Daas, Ben and Jerry’s, etc)?

  25. Hmm…if L.A.M.E.’s subterranean lair is hidden beneath Chip n’ Dale’s Treehouse attraction, then I wonder what strange and fantastic surprise awaits us beneath Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride.

  26. Salut,Salut joseph^^!

    Tient il n y a pas de photo
    aujours hui^^!

    Je n est pas trés bien compris se que vous racontiez dans les Emails..

    vous avez deja manger dans un restaurant où on cuisiner des fleurs?

    Voici quelques questions:

    1)Vous aimez le réglisse?
    2)Si vous jouriez dans stargate atlantis, quel rôle voudriez vous avoir?
    3)Il y aura encors beaucoup de scéne à la cantine d Atlantis dans la saison 4?
    ps: Cantine = Canteen

    Bon voila, je vais mettre un commentaire sur l autre aticle! alors a tout de suite^^!

  27. What do they always say? Long time listener, first time caller? Sorry, so cliched…but had to chime in. Are you, maybe, on an offchance, a Raiders fan (couldn’t see the video link for some reason)? So loathe to even bring it up sometimes. Since 1972 here. Marin County. Not the reason — obviously — I am reading your blog but gotta love that it brings me out of the woodwork. That and joining your Intl Book Club.

  28. 1)Will the bonds between team members deepen or splinter this season?

    2)Are there any storylines that were designed at the creation of SGA that have not been utilized yet?

  29. Hello ! My best friend and I made a bet ; she’s absolutely sure Michael the Wraith will star in the two parts of The Kindred and I think he won’t. Could you tell us if he will be in The Kindred or not, pretty please ?

  30. Hi Mr. M.,

    During Rising, it was clearly indicated that Sheppard has a very dominant ATA gene that now seems to have been completely forgotten about.
    I was wondering, other than Travellers, will we see any other episode in S4 that touches on Sheppard having a strong ATA gene?

    Thank You,
    Gate Geek

  31. So, you are able to devote attention and energy to being creative in your work, to giving attention to your family – the adorable doggies included – to eat and report on the most delightful of food finds, and still manage the hysterically amusing email scam interactions.

    I have decided that you are either (1) a total genius, (2) a man who never sleeps, or (3) someone who has, in fact, developed a time machine and uses it as needed.

    By the by, if it is in fact #3, any chance you can be bribed to loan said time machine out?

  32. August 28, 8h20 Am.

    Hey Joe!Today is special!! Do you know why?It’s Amanda Tapping birthday!!!! YYYAAAYY!!!Could you wisher H.B. from me,pppllleeaaassee!!! 😀

    By the way when is your birthday?

  33. Hey Joe,

    (Where you goin’ with that gun in your hand?….sorry everytime I write “Hey Joe” that pops into my head).

    Aaaaannyway. So I’m performing in this show called “HerStory”. It is actually an official production for the 400th anniversary of Jamestown (that would be Virginia). Its kinda a cool opportunity for me:) It follows the story of prominent Virginia women from Jamestown then later in Central Virginia. Aaaaanyway. The three “narrators” are from the three main cultural groups in the area at the time (Indian, African, and English). We call them the “spirits”. I am playing the Engish Spirit. But I digress. My director/show author has explained the spirits as Etherial beings who watch over the progress of history, and while they can have a calming influence—of course—-can do nothing to alter it. And I think to myself, “OH MY GOD! I HAVE TOTALLY ASCENDED!!! I’m an ANCIENT!!” So then being the quirky actress I am, “I need a name!”

    So that is my question. Any ancient names you have floating around in your head you’d be obliged to let me use in my own little world. Of course it would only be known to the English Spirit/Ancient b/c no one else wants to play along, but it will certainly help me get in to character! This is going to be better than that time I played Fifi the french foreign exchange student in the chorus of “Grease!”

  34. Hey joe, thx for the video!!
    i was just wondering who came up with O’neill’s one-liner, “Loose it. It means, go crazy. Nuts. Insane. Bonzo. No longer in possession of one’s faculties. Three fries short of a Happy Meal. WHACKO!!” ? voted best on the scifi site?? And what is your favourite one-liner from o’neill?

  35. Hi Joe,

    First of all… thanks for the video. It’s good to see him back!!!
    Will we see more videos of the others??? Pleeeaaase!!! 😉

    Next thing:
    I’ve thought a really long time about that subtle hint you gave us in one of the last three episodes concerning how Beckett will return. And I arrived at the conclusion that it has something to do with Michael and his experiments. I believe that the mention of the “Alien”- movies in “Vengeance” is the hint.
    In “Alien – the resurrection” Ripley get back as a clone. Maybe Michael did some similar experiments? It would have been easy for him to get a blood sample when he captured Beckett in “Misbegotten”, right? Maybe he did some cloning to ‘get a Beckett’ who could help him with his ‘bug’- research or further purposes? Or whatever the reason was…
    So therefore Beckett would return in flesh but as a clone….? Good guess? Yay or nay?

  36. *waves*

    Ah thank you for the dedication. It made me feel all warm and fuzzy, especially when i’m mentioned with the League of Aliens and Mutants for Evil. 😀

    I bet you’re really pleased you finally got the vid thingy working after all your troubles!
    (Oh, by the way, ‘thingy’ if you haven’t guessed, is the technical term) 😉

    Even if you didn’t manage to embed it into your blog, you did really good for someone who doesn’t even like email. So, that leads me nicely on to a couple of questions. Do you have to do much in the way of technical stuff when you review the dailies?

    And something i’ve been dying to ask, but didn’t want to look like a complete muppet was, what’s the difference between a blue screen and a green screen? Apart from the colour that is. 😀

    Thanks so much for the vid. You do know that you’re very close to losing your villainous reputation, don’t you? 😉

    *hugs*

  37. Hey Joe, one quick question. Will have Sheppard and Ronon problems with Carter, too? They both have problems with authorities and it would be nice to deal with it longer than only two or three episodes. Thanks for answer

  38. We just heard that Joe F is poorly. 🙁 that’s not squee. So please can you let him know that it’s Whump Shep, not self!

    *hugs for Joe*

    The IMDB is also missing Baron Destructo’s picture… Shame on you Joe!

    It’s funny actually, the country’s quite poor. 27th poorest in fact.

    I do have a question. Does Dr. Lee actually work at the Midway station or is he just there during the episode?

  41. If we’re talking birthdays, Liverpool is 800 years old today. It received its charter from King John in 1207.
    We have two cathedrals, three universities, two football teams and four lads who changed the world.

  42. Hi Joe,

    what do you think about Gateworld mods’ methods of throwing people into non-existence after telling one of them a few words of truth on their totally moronic hatred towards Rob Cooper’s wonderful work on season 10?
    I really hope both Stargate movies, especially The Ark of Truth, are going to do really well in DVD sales, so Gateworld’s “ANTI mafia” (Skydiver, saberhagen83, astrogeologist, Jackie, ReganX, Zoser and several others) can only scratch their empty heads in disbelief how this happened.

  43. Joe,

    Congratulations on the series’ two recent Gemini Awards nominations for:

    Best Writing in a Dramatic Series

    – Martin Gero – Stargate Atlantis: McKay and Mrs. Miller

    and

    Best Visual Effects

    – Mark Savela, Tom Brydon, Brenda Campbell, Debora Dunphy, Shannon
    Gurney, Andrew Karr, Todd Liddiard, Alec McClymont
    — Stargate Atlantis: No Man’s Land

    And congratulations to all the nominees!

    Bravo to SGA!

  44. Hiya, Joe!

    I was just watching one of the season 4 promo videos, and I was wondering if I could be cheeky and ask which episode the Shep/Teyla hug is in?

    Thanks!

  45. Cowboys fan? Well no one is perfect I suppose 😉 In Maryland Joe Gibbs is God. When he came back to the Redskins a few years ago it was like the Second Coming of Christ.

    Anywho, have you seen the Play and Freeze ice cream makers? I thought maybe on a lazy night when you are craving the homemade ice cream but are feeling lazy you could put this on the ground and put the pups to work. They play, you get the good stuff. I mean, they gotta earn their keep, right? 🙂

    Sweetie.. if you break the clearly posted rules on a forum – any forum – you will get modded. You can’t really seek to blame someone else for the clearly foreseeable consequences of your own behaviour..

    According to an interview with Charlie Cohen at MGM the season 10 DVD set has already sold at least 50% more than previous seasons so I think the message is truly out there that the handful of noisy naysayers on Gateworld are way out of step with the opinions of the vast majority of viewers. He says that MGM are already seriously considering two more DVD movies on the strength of that alone, so I’m guessing they won’t mess with a winning formula!

  48. I was just watching one of the season 4 promo videos, and I was wondering if I could be cheeky and ask which episode the Shep/Teyla hug is in?

    Yes Joe, please do tell. That’s one episode I want to skip.

    Seems like after it happened at least four times under various screen names she’d get a clue.

    But apparently not.

    I wonder how “wonderful” S10 would have been if Claudia Black hadn’t been there. Likely not even watched, that’s how “wonderful”.
