$%&@!!!!

“Why is the floor wet?”asked Akemi.  I walked over to investigate, assuming one of the dogs may have peed on the floor.  They hadn’t.  It was worse.  Much worse!

Apparently, the outlet hose of the air conditioner had slipped in from the window, pooling water onto the hardwood floor (Yes, that’s right.  Even though it’s unbearably cold outside, it’s unbearably hot in my apartment so I have to keep the air conditioning on at all times).

When I left Akemi this morning, she was on her hands and knees, trying to dry the floor with her hairdryer.

And the hits just keep on comin’!

Big dinner tonight with the networks (all four or five of them), so enjoy an early entry!

Behidn the scenes pics and vids from The Hunt…

See, Joey – you’re having sympathy leaks for me! It’s like we’re twins! I had a leaky sink, now you have a leaky AC. You had a sick dog, now I have a sick cat. Just wait until you start getting menopausal! Woo!

About that leaky AC. Can’t you turn your heat down? That’s just sorta weird, unless the entire building is controlled by a boiler room, or something, without individual thermostats. Or…OR…geez. Do NOT read the Pendergast book, Brimstone…eep.

BTW, how’s the microwave in your place working?? Ya know…just curious…

Poor Akemi. You make her do all the dirty work. I think you need to treat her to something special, like a spa treatment, with massage and everything.

Thanks for the behind the scenes pics! Looks like everyone was having a blast! Will be sad to see this crew go.

Enjoy your dinner, sir!

So sorry about the apartment but I’m glad it’s not your house!

I made the chicken dish and it was a big hit. Quick, delicious and easy-my kind of dish.

i agree with Das, Akemi deserves a treat.

Great pictures, It’s like you granted the requests of everyone asking for more Varro in one episode Joe lol

By the way, if anyone is in the Toronto area, they were, and I’m not sure if they still are filming the Silent Hill Revelations Movie in Cherry Beach. The Amusement park scenes are being done, lots of pics and videos have been posted online. Looks really good, seems like they’re really taking full advantage of what Toronto has to offer.

Hey there,
Just a question about the seizue set,

Was it actually at a power plant like the one it was filmed in or was the whole lot a scratch built set?
many thanks

I don’t know if anyone made that comment to you, but those Lucian alliance costumes resemble soooo much the Harkonnens outfits in David Lynch’s Dune. Flash dark leather, very close to the body.

5 episodes to the end of the (TV) Stargate franchise folks !!!
Enjoy it like the last good bottles of wine left in your cellar. Very soon there will be no more left.
Don’t be too sad, just enjoy it at 200% and burn the fun in your memory.

I know I should say something like, “Just roll with the punches” but dag, come on now. Did you break a mirror, walk under a ladder, eat a black cat? Go get yourself a rabbit’s foot and a box of four leaf clovers (and no that is not for a recipe).

At least the new job is great.

And thanks for the SGU pics/vids.

Thank you for the photos and videos Joe, they are awesome.

Just returned from a visit with my dentist, so am eagerly awaiting “The Hunt” tonight, as my reward. I would like to eat dinner now, but the side of my face is still too numb, so I sit here, having already fed the cats, with my stomach a-growl. Sigh…

Sorry about your AC, but I agree with Das that something is wrong if you need the AC with it so cold outside. Akemi is so sweet. I doubt I’d dry the floor with a hair dryer – ingenious actually.

Today it reached all the way to 82’F in my town! Shocker!

@ Das Poor sick kitty. What’s wrong? After 30+ years with cats, I’ve seen a lot, perhaps I can help?

G’night,

@ 2cats – She has/had and intestinal blockage. It was pretty bad, and what she was passing looked like…raw chicken livers. Back to the vet today, more x-rays and stuff, and they say she’s clear, but she’s still not eating, it’s been 5 days and she hasn’t touched her food. She is drinking water, though. I think there’s something else wrong, and they just aren’t catching it. I’m just exhausted by it all because we’ve spent $500 that we don’t have and I’m still not sure she’s going to be okay. She’s old but no idea how old because she was a ‘stray’ – just showed up and lived in our yard for almost a year before we took her in. She was fixed and obviously a house cat since once she got into the house she has refused to go outside. Probably some old lady’s cat that was tossed out after her owner died, or something. Nice kitty, a real love, and since Cowboy died she’s taken his place in Mr. Das’ heart. I tell ya, after these last two are gone, no more indoor cats for a while, we are going to need some time to recuperate. Plus, financially we really can’t afford this stuff right now. Okay, gonna shut up now because just talking about it gives me anxiety.

@das… suggest NO cats if the alternative is outside ones. Unless a farm, where I comprehend the need… outdoor cats live on the average about 7 yrs compared to double that for inside. sad Hope your kitty gets better. Not sure how she can survive 5 days no food… did they not give you stuff to force feed her some?

Great behind the scene pics. Now if our cable stays on I can actually watch it. Grrrr.

Guess I was somewhat right Joe, looks like Syfy have moved SGU to 6pm now on Monday, out of the prime time slot. Better than nothing I suppose..

On the bright side, at least people will be able to watch SGU less tired like, as it won’t be on late :3

Joe,

Tonight’s episode was great. In fact, all of the second half of Season 2 has been great. It really makes me sad that there are only a few episodes left. It feels like the show has finally gotten into a good rhythm with characters and stories. And it is cancelled! I will never understand how such a quality TV show could be cancelled. In many ways, it has become the most sophisticated and refined product of the Stargate franchise.

Joe, excellent episode! I was about to fall asleep when it started, and now I’m WIDE awake! I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. I really liked several things you did with this one, and I think you know what I liked most. Thank you for that scene in the cave – it was a great moment. The ending with Parker was a bit sad, but then again I’ve never been one for romance. Oh, and that Rush is such a stinker!! lol And Mr. Das and I both loved the whiner sock guy in sick bay. (That guy reminded me of my dad. razz ) But my head keeps going back to that moment in the cave…that made up for at least one gratuitous slaying of a Wraith in Atlantis. wink (But not Steve – never Steve – I’ll never forgive you guys for that one.)

@ Debra – The outdoor cats are ferals – spayed and neutered, but still ferals. In our community we have a catch (spay/neuter/shots) and release program, and somehow I inherited my neighbor’s feral colony. I realize their life span is shorter, but the alternative is living in a cage, or having them euthanized once captured. Of course, one of the outdoor kitties is one of our indoor kitties, but she started pooping in the kitchen, and I wasn’t having that, so we set up her living area in the garage, and she started pooping in the loft above the garage door instead of in her clean pan. Again, the alternative was to put her in a cage, or have her euthanized. I’m giving her a last chance by letting her live in the yard.

I don’t like letting cats roam – people poison them, cars hit them, they get locked in garages of summer homes and die. They also kill birds and bunnies, and poop in the flower beds. I prefer keeping my kitties indoors, but sometimes it just doesn’t work out that way.

Loved your episode Joe! Very The Predator-ish.

The beast was super cool. The face off scene in the cave with it and Greer reminded me of my last dog meeting a baby bird that could not fly yet. My dog got right up in the bird’s face and stared at it about 2 minutes. I thought my dog found a new BFF until suddenly…chomp! My dog ran off with the baby bird screaming in it’s mouth. Not a happy ending. I could see that happening with the beast and Greer. But I liked the way they parted much better!

Loved the infirmary scene! The humor reminded me of Atlantis’s wonderful humor. But why can’t we have a simple love story? Why did you break up “the kiss”, and what is wrong with bringing flowers, or going for a walk, or getting a bite to eat together. Why do you break up a simple romance? Twice in one espisode is a little frustrating.

Really enjoyed your story. It kept my full attention. It was jammed full of personal stories. Loved the beast. And I didn’t think Greer was crazy brave. Just very dedicated.

The Hunt…Great episode for the offworld adventure, good episode for the Destiny stuff, which is usually reversed for me. Spoilers Spoilers Spoilers Spoilers Spoilers Great performances by J. Smith, M. Dopud, A. Huffman, and J. Benson. Loved all the scenes offworld. From the great back-and-forth about shooting the alien deer(loved Park’s vegi comment) to the initial attack to the ambush to the surprise ending confrontation it was scarry good. Can’t believe the body count your racked up. Interesting that you are now down to Varro being the only L.A. left, unless you count ghost Ginn. I think it is an interesting pairing of T.J. and Varro, especially with Young on the outside looking in. I thought it was great that you hid the true look of the creature in the initial attacks. And I can’t believe that you made the creature sentient in the end, especially the way it looked at the fire and determined that T.J. & Reynolds were also intelligent. Also, you killed Bambi! This was a great episode for Greer. He was like Daredevil, the man without fear. Now that he thinks he died and there was no afterlife, he is questioning everything and feeling fear for the first time that we as viewers see. Thought it was a great discussion between Greer and James, you forget that she is his superior officer, it seems like there aren’t a lot of scenes with the two of them together. As for the stuff on Destiny, it was great, but it belonged in another episode. You could have had a whole episode to a day in the life and dealt with all the main and supporting characters and some of the chaos they deal with. It just didn’t seem to fit with the theme of this episode. I think you could have had the T.J. flashbacks you mentioned before in place of the Destiny action. Then you could have used this material in a future episode. That being said, there was some truly funny stuff here. Poor Brody being frozen. Poor Volker losing the girl. Chloe taking over for Park in the infirmary, Poor Park being attacked. But the funniest moment was when Chloe is trying to tell Eli she has other people to help and then she sees Brody in the statis pod…her expression is priceless and had me cracking up. The only thing I had a problem with was Rush playing around with Eli and Brody. After the last episode, where Eli saved Rush’s life by banishing Perry and Ginn, you’d think he would be a little bit grateful. Instead we see him looking petty, like he regressed to season 1 Rush. And you can also infer that he was much more interested in the stasis pods than in Brody’s safety. The one problem I have with the second half of the season is the inconsistancy you are using with writing Rush. First he is kind and comforting to Chloe, then he is all but accused of… Read more »

Is that Akemi cursing again? Joe it’s all your fault. Look what you’ve done! Turned beautiful sweet Akemi into a cursing machine. No more swearing around Akemi. She is too impressionable. (I’m surprised your dogs don’t bark obscenities.)

Joe – I especially loved the latest episode of SGU. The alien predators were great; the Lucian Alliance team was great. Louis Ferreira was great in that final scene with Alaina Huffman. I felt his pain. How can this show go away? I’m still in denial.

I lived in an apartment that got enough heat from the downstairs in the winter. In the summer, moving air with fans wasn’t enough. It required beaucoup A/C, which broke one summer and we were cooked alive.

My dad’s dog smelled the carpet yesterday, apparently where my dad spilled some pepper. His sneeze forced his nose back into the carpet. The cycle repeated over a dozen times before we convinced him to run. I didn’t want to touch him to move him because he looked pissed.
