We spun Marty G.’s latest story idea this morning, going back and forth on various notions as the room argued containment fields, points of science, and hot vs. cold air masses. The thematic shift of his story has turned out to be a good new/bad news situation for me. Good news: HE is now writing “A Very Special Stargate: Atlantis”. Bad news: He takes the #16 slot which means I’m writing #15 which will have to be ready to prep on the day we get back from our summer hiatus. It would be great to have a story locked some time before then, but it’s been mighty slow going. And I’m getting mighty anxious. By the way, best exchange of the day:
Brad: But that contradicts the laws of thermodynamics!
Martin: Laws are made to be broken!
After lunch, we watched the director’s cut of Whispers. It’s five and a half minutes long and much of that is going to come out of a bloated first act because once the fog moves in, thingsmoveveryquickly!
Speaking of Whispers, I received an email from Christina Cox (aka Major Anne Teldy) over the weekend who touched base to inform me she had a great time working on the show and was fighting the urge to order a case of Vosges peanut butter bonbons. She included a bunch ‘o pics from her time with us and kindly consented to my request to post them here. Check them out.
Also, check out two items I received in the mail. A veritable treasure trove of lint brushes and dog fur removers compliments of AmyFo (thanks, Amy). And a copy of the Ark of Truth soundtrack compliments of Joel Goldsmith (Go to freeclyde.com to order your copy and find out what Joel is up to. Oh, and tell him I said hi.)
So, are you finishing up The Blade Itself? I hope so. We’ll be starting our discussion on Monday!
Ah, just follow the links:
