Well, I’m back in Vancouver and not a day too soon it would seem. Lawren was snowed in for so long that he worked his way through the canned food AND his shoes. I shudder to think what would have been next on the menu if we’d ended up flying in tomorrow instead. Yes, I know what you’re thinking but I’m pleased to report that I have just as many dogs now as I did when I left. A big thanks to Lawren for taking care of Jelly, Maximus, Bubba, Lulu, and, oh yeah, the house during our absence.

Would love to stay and chat but I have some unpacking to do. But while you’re here, why not check out today’s Weird Food Purchase of the Day installment, yet another item my sister was more than happy to rustle out of the deep, dark recesses of her pantry.

ROFLMAO, Joe, is your sister paying you back for some terrible brotherly pranks? smile

Hey Joe.

Another question regarding Atlantis: In First Strike when Weir and Keller are in the transporter, it shows them go from point A to point B as you would in a regular elevator. However, in Remnants we see Woolsey and that girl in the transporter and when they go from one location to the other there is bright flash of light once she presses the button. Why is there a difference?

Thanks Joe….and glad you got back okay!

@Anne Teldy: Please feel better soon. I wish I could have donated blood for you. I actually did that for my 13 year old neighbor when she needed a 5 hour back surgery. Poor thing! She was thrilled that she actually got MY blood. I told her it made us blood sister like no other. Now I need to go and give blood again. Thanks for the reminder.

Thanks for all the well-wishes posted here and sent privately. It always makes things a little better knowing people care.

The only noticeable signs that the transfusion might have helped are my cheeks are slightly pinkish — I was so pale at the hospital, my younger sister said it looked like someone painted black eyebrows on me — and my mind seems just a tad less foggy. Tuesday morning I’m having the bloodwork done that will let us know if the transfusion helped and/or if I need another one.

Trish, I’m A+. You?

Please donate blood if you can. We who need it thank you.

Hey Joe!
Loved Vegas, and wanted to clarify something. This alternate reality was not one that we had seen before, correct?

Just wanted to chime in on Vegas…

I watched it the first time and thought…Wow. Different. Weird. Great, but so different. I watched it a second time and fast forwarded to the McKay parts, because, hey, McKay’s my favorite and I loved this AU McKay. Then I watched it again from the beginning (fast forwarding through the commercials) and just savored the whole episode – the look, the music, the story, the acting, the very cool, rock star-looking Wraith. To me it was like the cast and crew were saying to the network TV folks: CSI? Yeah, we can do that – no problem.

It was so interesting to watch, and, yes, it’s in my list of top 10 favorite SGA eps. One of the reasons I enjoyed the ep so much was because AU Sheppard and McKay were different from their alternate selves and Flanigan and Hewlett played them so well. It made me really hope to see these two actors in other roles soon.

And I love how on one level it seemed this would be a standalone ep that’s kind of just there because it’s the 100th episode, but it actually ties in with the last episode.

I can’t wait for next week’s episode, and yet I’m dreading it because it’s the last. To MGM and TPTB: Hurry up with the Season 5 DVD! Hurry up with the SGA movie! If you’re taking away my weekly fix, I want more SGA as soon as possible.

Very nice work…again.

Joe, I can’t decide if you’re very brave or *nuts*. What do *you* think? Anne Teldey ~ Get better soon!! *HUGS* @Alexandria ~ thank you for your support. Also, you’re post about how the people who make shows *are* answerable to the audience, sowe *do* own it in a way, took the works right out of my mouth — thanks for saving me the trouble. shiningwit & others with similar sentiments ~ Funny you can’t seem to take your own advice about not reading what bothers you. XD Joe has said repeatedly that he can and will censor when he feels it necessary; only *he* has a right to say what is acceptable for us to post here, is that not so? So why, then, do you essentially keep telling those of us you disagree with to shut up rather than ignore us as you suggest we do to you? Note that I am not telling *you* to shut it — I’m just curious. I have not ever, as far as I can recall, told someone they shouldn’t post their opinion. I’m also curious as why some individuals think they know what should or shouldn’t be taken seriously in the opinons of others and how far. It’s “just a show” to you, bully for you. But why exactly should I bow to that? Again, just curious. Perhaps you don’t realise just how condescending/arrogant/opinionated/or hostile that can appear? Or simply don’t care, I guess, as Wit has already said s/he resolves to not be PC. I find it deliciously ironic that Wit has chastised of the rudeness of others — the posts s/he has written in turn seemed pretty rude to me. Or maybe that’s an “eye for an eye” sort of philosophy? For myself, seeing as I am a writer, I take ALL writing *very* seriously, even comedy. ;P I appreciate what I perceive as good, feel what I don’t like as if it were a knife in the gut, and try my best to learn by dissection of both what seems good and what seems bad, I even learn from other’s perspectives, even if I don’t agree with them. I feel I have leanred more anout writing through this exploration in the last 7 years of writing critical commentary (not just about the ‘Gate, mind, other shows too) than I have learned in all my schooling Should I *not* take my profession seriously? Shall we say the same to doctors and police officers? Maybe it’s okay to say it to a barista, because they are “unimportant”, and so are writers? …. HAs it occured to anyone that many of the people being accused of taking it to seriously are also writers? Would you tell Joe and Brad that they take their jobs to seriously? (Granted, I fear Joe might say he *doesn’t* actually take his job seriously. ;P) The ‘Gate franchise has opened many doors for me, personaly and professionally, and I have made briliant friends that I might… Read more »

Oh, you poooor thing. I bet that “sip” was awful. A whole swallow of vinegar…yuck. And, I happen to love balsamic too. Hope you recovered from this one. Guessing, the shock value could have come close to sobbering one up quickly, even if just for a few minutes.

Just out of curiosity, who was laughing almost cackling in the background of your WFPOD? Guessing one voice was Andrias and perhaps Fondy? Others?

Glad to hear you are safely back home.

Okay, I wanted to be another person in the pool to pester, because if several of us ask the same question mayhap you will answer it? Paleeeeeeeze???

So, now that we have all seen Vegas and there is the scene with the wraith getting himself all gussied up, there is a quick snippet of wraith boobage. Now to me it looks like the actor had his chest “wraithed” up, but the writers wanted to have the wraith look like there are no aureolae and nipples, so that area is blurred out in the image not with makeup but with the camera after effects. It would make no sense for male and female wraith to have the chests they have and not have mammary glands. Perhaps they are like the Platypus: lay eggs and suckle (sort of), or give live birth like some rattlesnakes and don’t suckle. Or perhaps they just shake hands and call it a day.

BTW did you know that you too were once female. Yes Joe, you were once female…a long, long time ago. All feotuses are female for the first nine weeks of life–hence male boobage. And did you know you can also breast feed? Frightening, and a little repulsive, none the less it is true.

:S

Do you intend to use the travelers in Atlantis movie or the new series? They travel in the most unsafe, junk mobiles and still somehow beat everyone else.
Have you ever made chruscik? There polish cookies that taste like funnel cakes, but better. (maybe it’s the rum in the chruscik) There also call bow tie cookies.

thanks

The weird food purchase, finally getting to the liquid stuff as promised. Can’t wait until you get to the alcoholic testing as you always take a lot when you do your testing.

@David

You have a right to your opinion and I have a right to mine no matter what you think about it. I don’t put emphasis on GW at all. I did not like the answers to the SGA questions and I have a right to feel the way I do. I did not say that by ME not watching SGU would make a difference I said hopefully there is enough of us to make a difference. If not well then not. Just because I feel different than you doesn’t mean I am childish, I just have a certain way of viewing this and well, as I said, I have a right to do that. I have strong opinions as you do, they just don’t match. As for SGU, I haven’t read anything or listened to anyone positive or negative, I am just not interested in the show, I am not a Franchise groupie, I came on board by pure luck seeing an SGA by accident one night. Just cause I like SGA doesn’t mean I like all things Stargate, in fact, SG-1 was just ok for me. After seeing SGA I figured I’d give SG-1 a shot since I like SGA so much, but sadly it wasn’t what I was looking for in a show. Not everyone has to like all things Stargate just cause they like one thing Stargate. I can take or leave scifi, it depends on how the show captivates me as you have your reasons for what you do.

@ Pam
Don’t apologize for me, you don’t know me. I don’t criticize your opinions whether I like them or not and wouldn’t apologize for you to other groups who may take offense to your thinking, in my opinion, you are superior to others, because you agree with tptb.

and @ Dilz:

Very eloquently and professionally stated.

As for Vegas, I loved it up til the end. Loved the music and the guys at the poker table and their chatter about the finger. Didn’t like the death of sheppard whether it’s an alternate reality or not.

Sorry, I got some of you upset, but once again just my opinion I am venting as you all are venting your praise.

Gateworld Update:

In the Vegas discussion thread, fans continue to express both praise for this cutting edge Stargate episode, and great disappointment over the absence of several key members of the team, including the very gate itself, while many others continue to lament the show’s cancellation in favor of new, edgier production with its eye on a younger audience and greater possibilities.

Meanwhile, over in the WDC, the Great Nipple Debate rages on…

Glad you made it back ok. Has any of the snow melted or is Vancouver still burried? Had any of your family seen the previous WFPOTD installments? Did they have any favourites? I’m eagerly awaiting the alcoholic version.

Hehe @ WFRTD (weird food review of the day – seeing as you didn’t purchase it)

You’re so darn cute. Fondy’s lucky to have you.

Pretty sure the dogs were happy to see you and barfed on the dining room floor to honour your return.

Actually your Weird Food Purchase should REALLY be entitled Weird Food Discovery when you haven’t actually been out and bought the thing specifically. just being somewhat pedantic this morning.

riley

Heh. I’m glad you are amusing your relatives as much as you’re amusing us with your bizarre foodstuffs. I bet that would have been nice if you hadn’t eaten it by the spoonful! For christmas desert we had chocolate pavlova with balsamic cherries – that was awesome.

What, no comments at all about the vinegar? Somehow, I don’t think taking a teaspoon of it straight up is the proper way to experience its flavors…
