Well, darn it. Because April 1st has fallen on a production holiday, I find myself traveling to Montreal rather than being back at the office, pulling off some elaborate practical joke on Ashleigh, our Exec. Producer’s Assisstant (see last year’s hilarity: http://josephmallozzi.wordpress.com/2009/04/01/april-1-2009-theodore-wilsons-last-ride/). Apparently, Ashleigh was equally disappointed as she informed me that she’d planned on “getting me” with an equally marvelous practical joke, Machiavellian in its plotting, joyously wicked in execution, that would have ultimately culminated in my demise. I wondered aloud whether that might have been taking it too far. She vehemently disagreed. And when I asked her what, exactly, it was she’d planned, Ashleigh refused to tell me on the grounds that she might just go ahead and spring it on me anyway…when I least expect it! Ominous, no?
So there you have it. No practical jokes on this day. Instead, an early blog entry and a real treat compliments of Scott Stofer (armed and dangerous in the following pics and vids) and the rest of the Special Effects gang as they test some “equipment” for a future episode. By the way, if you missed Scott’s Q&A on this blog, check it out here ( http://josephmallozzi.wordpress.com/2008/11/22/november-22-2008-special-effects-master-scott-stofer-answers-your-questions/).
Ah, well. So much for Carl’s van.
This must be the best job in the world, burning and blowing stuff up all day!
Thanks to Scott for the blog fodder!
Stargate: Universe returns tomorrow night with an all new episode! Tell your friends! And tell them to tell their friends!
