Honestly. What the hell was I thinking choosing a Blackberry over an iPhone? Why didn’t anybody tell me what I was missing out on? If anyone out there is faced with a similar decision – Blackberry or iPhone – allow me to break it down for you: GET – THE – iPHONE! Seriously. I feel like someone has just introduced me to HD television after about a year and a half of entertaining myself with radio. Following the suggestions kindly given me, I synced my MacBook with my iPhone and now I’m surfing the net and getting my emails on both. Not only that, but I was up past midnight last night downloading apps in preparation for my upcoming Tokyo trip. Forget my Garmin GPS, English-Japanese dictionary, guide books, hard copies of my schedule, and subway maps. Nowe, they’re all in one handy, portable device. Yes, my conversion is complete. All hail, Apple!
Oh, hey, prior to heading off on hiatus, I told several cast members that I’d like them to swing by the blog and do a Q&A now that the show has finally started airing (David Blue and Brian J. Smith did one prior to the premiere and I aim to get them back for another go now that you’re all familiar with their characters). Anyway, Peter Kelamis, who plays Adam Brody on SGU, checked in with me the other day, dropping me an email on an unrelated topic – and has found himself officially corralled. SO, if you’ve got questions for actor/comedian/pet psychic/t.v. scientist, start posting. I’ll be gathering them up through Monday. What was it like working on the first year of Stargate: Universe? Where would he like to see his character go (provided we haven’t killed him off yet) next year? Which is his favorite sandwich off crafts service and why do they serve up those little baby carrots? I mean, come on. It’s not as if anybody actually eats them!
Also, while perusing my backlog of photos, I came across a batch I snapped during the Time shoot. As you know, the creatures used are underwater denizens from the deep, deep depths of the Pacific Ocean and, while deadly, can be docile given the right conditions: while sleeping, drugged, or dead. So our resident monster wrangler, Evil Kenny Gibbs showed up with one for a little show-and-tell and, well, things got a little out of hand…
Pleased to see that the response to Time has been overwhelmingly positive. I’ll weigh in with further thoughts after the episode airs in the U.K.
Off to peruse the App Store. Hey! Holographic Audio Thunder and Bird Songs! I ask you, how did I live without it?!
