Anyone remember that episode of WKRP in Cincinnati, the one in which Johnny Fever mistakenly announces a five thousand  dollar prize to the first person who can correctly identify an assembly of various tunes?  With Andy and Venus’s help, he creates a near impossible to identify mash-up comprised of a fraction of a second from each song, figuring no one will guess ’em in a million years.  The first caller guesses all but one.  Then the second caller guesses them all.

That’s what I was reminded of yesterday when, mere moments after posting those 25 SGU-related questions, you all started responding – with all the answers!  As promised, prizes will be awarded to the first three posters who answered all 25 questions correctly.  So, congratulations go out to –

E, Damon Key, and LowRiders95s10!

And since many of you were late to the party but still took the time to respond, I also selected one more random winner.  Another round of congratulations go out to –

PBMom.

Enjoy your SGU 1.0 box set (or, if you’re not region 1, some other cool prize).  They include the first ten episodes aired in addition to oodles of special features including the kino video diaries…

Those of you who didn’t win an SGU 1.0 box set – fear not!  You can still pick one up.  They hit store shelves today!

Well, the Sunday wasn’t all fun and football games.  It was the day me and the gang said goodbye to Brie.  She may have been a hellraiser, but she was also a great cuddler.  She’ll be missed…

Hanging with Lulu.
Looking for someone to harrass.
Like, say, Lulu.

If you ask me, she looks mighty bummed to be leaving.We’ll miss Brie and she’ll miss…well, the Olympics anyway.  Speaking of the Games, I hear that downtown Vancouver is a circus, teeming with tourists, media, Olympics hangers-on, and, of course, the athletes who have taken to parading about town in their athlete-wear lest anyone fail to recognize them for the truly special [for the duration of these Olympics anyway] human beings they are.  Today’s Olympic update comes compliments of Yahoo Sports which lists the Ten Biggest Blunders in Olympic history: http://ca.sports.yahoo.com/olympics/news?slug=ys-forbesolyblunders020310&prov=yhoo&type=lgns.   Fingers crossed for this year!

On the office front, Carl, Ashleigh and Lawren are going out of their way to annoy me by actively supporting the Olympics.  Carl, for instance, even went so far as to purchase a ridiculous maple leaf sweatshirt.  And he isn’t even Canadian!

I was left impressed and expressed my displeasure…

joe, no response to michael shanks interview remarks?… sad

(i’m sure there’s more than just ‘me’ wanting an answer)

susan the tartan turtle

If you are planning on thumping Carl again be careful not to get blood on the T-shirt – I can just see Rodney McKay wandering around Atlantis with it on.

I hope that Brie doesn’t miss you too much. The rest of the pack will be able to relax a bit now that the manic pup has gone. Will she be keeping in touch?

lol

Joe,
Is MGM going to continue to put out Half Seson’s DVD box sets of SGU?

I got my BluRay of SGU … Amazon says it was shipped. So, no problem not winning. Well, it was kinda hard to win with only 18 correct. There were some really good “not real” answers. Really a great contest, competition, and everyone playing. I repeat sir, may we have more?

Awwww, poor Brie and you guys too to have to say bye bye.

Hope you and Carl as well as Ashleigh and Lawren don’t continue to fight. Please be nice – at least until after Season 2 is in the can. PLEASE! There is a season of SGU episodes at stake here!

Enjoying the winter wonderland of the Chicagoland area – NOT! So much snow – enuff already.

Das – hope you and others on the east coast can ride out the second wave of the stuff.

Congratulations to the all the winners of your contest and I hope you have more…at least the winners don’t have drop $38.99 for only 40 minutes of extras! Gee whiz, I thought for sure that the there would be more on the DVD set for that price! And while I know you had nothing to do with the DVD content or lack thereof in this case, I am hoping you will pass on to MGM executives my sincere displeasure for being so cheap concerning the length of the extras.

$38.99 is lot to pay for just 10 episodes and only 40 minutes total of extras. I’ll have to seriously re-think my purchase of second half of season 1 of SGU based on those ratios! I will wait when the next 10 episodes come out and purchase them at a discount when the newness wears off…

Bad…MGM… Great SGU!!!

Dear Joe,

I have a few questions about the Stargate movies. It’s way over a year since we were told that we would get a movie for SG-1 and also SGA. Now I know you have no control over what’s going on, but how much time would have to go by before saying…”Nope, it ain’t gonna happen.” ?
Also, if such times comes(which I hope it doesn’t) would you tell us what was suppose to happen for the SGA movie?
I’ve been growing concern, especially after the news of SGA novels that will start from where things were left at the end of Season 5, that it means that any chance of movies won’t exist.
I’m not saying that I’m not excited about the novels, but I would like the movies too.
And my last question. I thought that there were mentions of alot more scenes that were deleted during Season 4 and 5. Like John and Teyla after the hug scenein Doppelganger and something about Jason having troubles with one of his lines because it sounded like he had an accent… something like that. Any chance of throwing us a bone and do a DVD with just bloopers(without all the explainations) and deleted scenes from all 5 seasons?

Thank you

Yes, Majorsal, I would like to know to. When the actors start losing hope it doesn’t help the fans any. sad

Congrats to the winners!

But poor Carl! First USC, and now this.

So sad about Brie. I’ll bet she’ll miss the gang.

**Long Winded Story Warning**

I’ve been worried about mom because of the local floods from our burned mountains. Although not directly in the path, her nursing home is below street level, which concerns me. We had another storm today and there were mandatory evacuations. I tuned in a local station on the internet at work, and saw an older couple who were refusing to leave their already devastated neighborhood. Idiots. Then I started to piece together a mystery decades in the making.

I’ve been passionate about geology since I took some college classes years ago. And it’s that passion that has kept me interested in teaching about quakes and preparedness throughout the last 15 years.

Here’s the site –Under the window scroll to “KTLA: Hundreds of Home Threatened By…

http://www.ktla.com/news/landing/ktla-rain-storms,0,435909.story

Yep, Del (not Dale) “Doc” Tucker was my geology teacher. Seeing him brought back fond RFOL moments. Like in 1971, after the Sylmar quake we had class in the school auditorium because our classroom had been trashed. Two weeks later a 4.5 aftershock hit, and we all had to Run For Our Lives as part of the ceiling collapsed.

Then there was the time during a geology field trip that we camped on a frontage road north of Vegas. We were dead tired and hadn’t noticed something as we settled into our sleeping bags for the night. A freight train came barreling through and we had to RFOL off the tracks.

The most memorable moment was on another field trip when we were again exhausted and found a nice soft sandy spot to plop our bags down in Death Valley. It was pitch black, and dry, until someone woke up and noticed their sleeping bag was wet. All of our sleeping bags, along with us, were sopping and getting wetter, fast. A flash flood coming down the wash from the far away mountains had us RFOL, jumping into our vehicles, trying to find high ground, and not die a humiliating death from drowning in DEATH VALLEY.

I always wondered what happened to him. Now I know. And he’d better Run For His Life. Tempus Fugit Doc.

Hey Joe,

Count me in the “i(e)nquiring minds want to know” club with regard to SG1-3. Maybe a phone call to your old pals might serve to enlighten and/or give us hope?

Since I can’t simply ring up Brad, Rob, or (sadly enough) Rick or Amanda, perhaps you could in my (or collectively, “our”) stead?

Even a simple, “all hope is not lost, keep your chin up” type of message? I know you don’t have much contact with that side of the fence these days, but…anyway. You get the idea.

Thanks a bunch,
Pol

With Brie’s departure, if you require the services of an energetic puppy to entertain the gang, let me know and I’d be happy to lend you my 7-month-old GS pup. Her older canine companion and the horses could probably use the break.

YEAH, I *do* remember that WKRP ep!! grin
Loved that show… Good times, good times….
And looking at the time stamps on everyone’s postings, did seem a little creepy at how quickly they all responded….

Ah Joe,

You are something special! I love the vids..still laughing. LMAO. Mine is ordered…still waiting for the arrival. *tapping fingers and foot*

Ha, why is it that I am hearing the BlueRay has MORE special features than the DVD. *lower lip sticking out* WHAT! Am I less “special” because I don’t have a BLUERAY? Don’t answer that.

LOVE, love love your show-n-tell. So wonderful today..always love to see the pups….and CARL. You missed Patrick/Voker though. A few more of him PLEASE! Pictures that is..I did see him in the video (shhh, very cool)

Great blog..love it..love you, big big hug.

Best to you Joe,
Always,
Cheryl smile

Sigh. I would miss the important give away post, wouldn’t I? If only grad school could compensate me for this loss…

Aww, sorry to see Brie go.

Apple Core. LOL! Makes me think of the “we can name it later” bit from Rising.

Haha Joe….that is my fave episode of WKRP…I think you should stop taking contest-running lessons from MGM …lol. But thank you for making amends to all of the people that started answering at the announced time and I’m sooooo glad that I know one of the winners. Congrats to all of the winners – enjoy your dvd.

Me, I’m still waiting for my blu-ray version. It sat at LA for 10 hours before being rescanned. I’m hoping its midflight between LA & Australia but who really knows. I’d like to see Amazon introduce a service where your parcel tweets you along the way – I know they have SMS, I just think this would be more personal. What do you think?

Re: the photos with Carl. Are you auditioning for a Guy Ritchie film. How’s your British accent?

Awww Brie….so sad…are the dogs wandering around looking for her or do they get it?

I love sporting blunders…my fave of those listed of course is the 1000M speedskating race that Steven Bradbury won – awesome!!! It was our first Winter Gold Medal and proof that you should never give up – inspirational.

Cheers, Chev

I loved WKRP in Cincinnati and do remember that ep! My favorite, however, will always be the turkeys… “As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.” lol

That reminds me of another 70s sitcom I loved – Barney Miller. I think my favorite ep was the blizzard one, which just seems fitting right now – you can watch it on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UEFZbdLm9J4

“With the heat on in here and all, how long do you think it’s gonna be before he starts to turn?” lol Mom and I still quote that line in certain (and probably very inappropriate) situations. smile

RE: Contest winners: Congrats!!

Re: Brie: Sad to see her go. sad Hope she likes her new home. She’s gonna miss Lulu (not sure that the feeling will be mutual, though wink ).

RE: Storm: I woke up about 3:00 am – steady snow/sleet/rain, but nothing heavy yet. Figured I’d read the blog and post now, while I can…just in case. Right now it seems like no big deal, but who knows what it’ll be like a few hours from now when the two systems converge.

Well, I should go back to bed…but gotta finish watching this Barney Miller ep first! grin

Ah I haven’t seen Apple Core. They yanked most of the kinos from the Aussie SGU site before all were uploaded (when they started showing it on Ch 10), then Ch 10 dumped SGU after 3 weeks and we haven’t seen them return.

So funny….I love Patrick’s APLCR unit comment….I would probably smirk while saying that….nice work PG.

Cheers, Chev

Salut Joseph! ça va bien? moi ouép mais je n’ai pas pu aller en cour aujourd”hui car hier soir j’ai essayer de prendre des somnifères à cause de mes problémes pour m’endormir, sauf que ce matin à mon reveille j’étais une morte vivante impossible de faire un pas devant l’autre sans rentré dans quelques chose O_O, je peu vous dire que je ne suis pas prête de reprendre ça^^

Bravo à ceux qui ont répondues à toutes les questions!!!!

Bonne journée!
