Well fine.

Apologies.  The trailer won’t be coming out until first thing tomorrow morning.  9:00 a.m. to be exact.  So set your watches.

Hopefully these pics will tide you over.

Addendum: Nope, sorry.  9:00 a.m. PDT.  Again, apologies.  The gang at post, led by the lovely Kerry McDowall, did an excellent job getting the trailer finished and ready to go by early afternoon – but we’ve been delayed by circumstances beyond our control.  Hopefully, it’ll be worth the wait.  There were ooh’s and aaah’s aplenty late this afternoon as it was being screened by various cast and crew.

I’ll be out on location tomorrow shooting Day #2 of The Hunt, so blogging time will be minimal.  I’m uploading the trailer vid tonight with the intention of bringing my wordpress blog up on my iphone and hitting “publish” tomorrow at 9:00 a.m.  The trailer will be up here, over on Gateworld, and various other sites including Show Patrol, SFSignal, TVOvermind, Pop Culture Zoo, and John Scalzi’s insanely entertaining Whatever blog.  Check it out at any or all of the aforementioned sites, then head back here an drop me a comment.  I’ll be checking them throughout the day and tomorrow night, time permitting, I’ll hop on and add a little write-up to accompany the trailer.

Today, Ivon informed me that he had bought me a book after listening to a radio interview with its author, John Vailliant.  Titled The Tiger: A True Story of Survival and Vengeance, it’s the true account of one poacher’s bad luck in messing with the wrong gigantic Amur tiger.  From a review by Christopher McDougall: “In 1997, deep in the remote Russian backcountry, a gigantic Amur tiger begins acting like the only thing more savage than a wild animal–us. It doesn’t just attack villagers; it hunts them, picking its targets like a hitman with a contract, at one point even dragging a mattress out of a shack so it can lie comfortably in wait until the woodsman returns home. A few days later, the woodsman’s horrified friends discover remains “so small and so few they could have fit in a shirt pocket.”  That’s what my second grade teacher, Mrs. Vowels, would’ve referred to as “an ouchie”.  Anyway, looking forward to reading this one.

As soon as I finish the one I’m reading now, Fool: A Novel by Christopher Moore, a hilarious retelling of the bard’s King Lear told from the point of the view of Pocket, the king’s fool.  I’m about a hundred pages in and enjoying immensely.  Other recent reads very much worth mentioning: Jeffrey Ford’s The Beyond (the third and final installment of his wildly inventive Well-Built City Trilogy), Jeff VanderMeer’s The Third Bear (a weird and wonderful collection of his short fiction), Daryl Gregory’s first novel Pandemonium (inscrutable, outlandish, and incredibly engaging), the Lou Anders and Jonathan Strahan-edited Swords and Dark Magic (one helluva a fun collection showcasing the likes of such fantasy heavy hitters as Steven Erikson, Glen Cook, Gene Wolfe, James Enge, Michael Moorcock, and Baron Destructo’s good buddy Joe Abercrombie), Stephen King’s Misery (a re-re-re-read of my favorite King novel – Stargate has its fair share of Annie Wilkes’s),  and a mind-bending double-shot of Alastair Reynolds – Zima Blue and Diamond Dog, Turquoise Days.

So what’re YOU reading?

Joey…you’ve been a man of very few words lately. Life must be very good, very hectic, or very bad, on your side of the blog. I’m guessing…very good. Your social life is buzzing, you have a girl – or guy – waiting in every restaurant portico , and you’ve eaten a good 10 pounds of chocolate in the last month. I guess you don’t need us anymore… *sniffle*

Okay, I’ve figured out Destiny’s new mission!!!

Carl is joining the show as a cast member! The last few days we’ve seen pics of him sitting in the command chair of the Destiny, and now tonight it looks like he is trapped in some kind of off world porta-potty.

Although… it may not be the real Carl Binder… the Carl in the picture doesn’t have his shirt tucked in!

hmm…

Hey Joe,

Too bad about the trailer… I was looking forward to it all day! I suppose I can wait a little longer wink

Have you seen this yet? Thought you might find it interesting: http://gizmodo.com/5644290/take-me-to-a-future-where-books-act-like-this

I think all 3 programs they mention are really neat and have some intriguing applications, but Coupland definitely seems like it’d be a really neat way to share books…

Hope the dogs are all well!

Hey Joe, I don’t get it… how come you eat all that food and don’t get fat? Do you really work out heaps ? (You’d have to)

Those balls were really big and tasty looking wink

Well, worst comes to worse we’ll just watch the show and the heck with the trailer. As for reading books, argh. Backlogged badly, never mind keepin up with the half dozen podcasts I try to monitor. Still, light at the end of the tunnel, so with a little luck I’ll be able to start chopping down the backlog. In the meantime I’ll order up some of those books you’ve suggested, just so that the pile doesnt feel abused.

Hey Joe,

I don’t mind waiting until tomorrow. I think it is great we can just come here to see it. Thank you for the extra effort to have it ready for launch. Very thoughtful…location always sounds fun.

Thank you for the pictures too. LOVE them.

Best to you Joe,
Always,
Cheryl smile

Did somebody put a gun at your head an told you you can’t put the trailer up today? Or we’re you kidnappped by aliens?
Why, for god sake, why wasn’t the trailer up at the promised time?

Hey Joe, I was wondering if you could explain why there are no release dates for the complete first season of Stargate Universe on dvd in Australia? Its just that I would really like to get the dvd’s as I enjoyed watching it but as far as I am aware there are no release dates

And what am I reading.
Félix J. Palma – El mapa del tiempo.
The book is about the timemechine being invented in 1866 in London, on year after the H. G. Wells story Timemechine. It’s a very bizarre book, but so damn terrific. I haven’t read something so good in years.

I said it last time (probably not here) and I’ll say it again – I will not go to sleep before seeing the trailer! Don’t know what time zone that 9 a.m. is, but should be late evening for me.

You tease. Cool pics though. I’ll be looking for that trailer tomorrow morning.

Hi Joe,

Playing catch-up with the blog tonight – WOW, great food, great pics, promise of a fab trailer (and pics of fab food trailers), and great reading, too! So, how are the puppies? Doesn’t it seem like no matter what you put on the blog there’s always someone who asks about the one thing you didn’t mention? *snirk* Talk about food, we ask about the dogs; give us SGA pics, we wonder about authors; write about comics and anime and we bug you about chocolate. It almost seems like a conspiracy, no? heh heh heh wink

Hmmm, what am I reading? Let’s see, on the bedside table are four series re-reads: Piers Anthony’s “Centaur Aisle”; Jacqueline Carey’s “Kushiel’s Justice”; Spider Robinson’s “Callahan’s Key”; and Mercedes Lackey’s “Oathblood.” And Gilder recently brought Anne McCaffrey to mind, so I’m re-reading the entire “Dragonriders of Pern” series (although giving the series additions by Todd McCaffrey a miss). I don’t have anything new just now – but Christmas being just around the corner, I’m beginning to form a list!

Smiles, Julie

@PBMom – Ouch! Good heavens, you get your head under control and your kidneys kick in? Get well soon, my friend!

@Chev – I’ve been so out of touch, what on earth happened to the Super Secret Project? Is it safe? Do you have it? I know how hard you’ve been working on it – hope everything turns out all right. :/

@Das – What do you call a pale denizen of the Pegasus galaxy which keeps to the shadows and slinks around underground?


A Rat Wraith

What do you call it if a Wraith runs a few steps, falls to the ground, then runs a few steps, and falls to the ground repeatedly?


A Re-Lay Wraith

And last, and probably least:

What do you call a Wraith in horse race?


A Mare, Wraith-on (marathon)

Okay, that last was the weakest, but it’s almost midnight and I was going for the race trifecta here. G’Night!

I always love a good Terry Pratchett but I’m really working on Romeo and Juliet for my Shakespeare class. Just finished Othello and Hamlet.

In other news, can’t wait to see the trailer. It should be interesting to say the least. I came to SGU late (I don’t know where my head was when I was staying away from SGA and now I’m attempting to embrace SGU). I hope it doesn’t ruin anything for me — I’m only halfway through the first season. Thank god for netflix instant play!

@feanor: Have you read “El menor espectaculo del mundo” by the same author? I’ve heard that “El mapa del tiempo” was translated into English – well worth the read. smile
