February 4, 2015: Space Beer!  Cosmic Tonic!  And Out Of This World Girlfriends!

My last view of my home (away from home) before boarding the elevator that will whisk me to my car.  Despite the fact that I’m out the door at 6:00 a.m., Akemi and Bubba always get up to see me off.  And, hopefully, get a parting treat and belly rub.  Or, in Bubba’s case, just the parting treat.

Speaking of treats, Akemi followed up those brown butter bourbon cookies with two types of hand made truffles for the cast and crew…

White chocolate and cream cheese truffles.  To call them a hit would be to understate.  Akemi’s popularity was sky high.  Said Renee Chan, our key hair person after tasting a truffle: “If you don’t marry her, I will!”

Another crazy-busy – but no less awesome day – as prep and production on Dark Matter‘s first season continues.  On set, director Paolo Barzman continues to work his magic on an incredibly challenging episode.  If you’re a fan of “team” stories, you’re going to love this one.  Meanwhile, Amanda Tapping continues to helm our meetings in advance of the episode #104 shoot.  Today, we got together with costumes, visual effects, playback, and props…

  1. And I have always said, Akemi and awesome,same sentence,,yes, she is soooo talented! and you might not have to refrigerate very long once everyone sees them..

  2. Is the space beer an ale or lager? I’d prefer an ale, but I guess in space you can’t be picky.

    And I thought the hero chair looked entirely too stable (what challenge is a stable chair to a hero?) Instead it should be one of those old 4 coaster office chairs that would tip you over sideways if you simply turned your head. That would be a hero’s challenge!

    And today, for some reason, I recalled your difficulty in finding a location shoot due to lack of signs and I remembered an Android/iPhone app that could help you with these.

    http://www.glympse.com/what-is-glympse

    Glympse allows you to share your position or a planned location for a meeting among a group of trusted colleagues or friends. It will then help the people in your group navigate to the meeting and it will give you position updates of all the participants.

    You can find it on the app stores for Android and Apple and it’s free.

    Let me know if you have any questions on use or setup.

  3. After you leave, does Akemi go back to bed for a couple more hours or does she stay up? Nothing beats homemade treats. Akemi is so thoughtful. She would be a hit at my office too.

    “If you’re a fan of “team” stories, you’re going to love this one.” Well, you know you are preaching to a very large choir here on your blog when you mention team episodes. You know we love a team.

    Did you see the video of the Taiwan plane crash? Incredible! Like a nightmare happening in real life.

  4. Bacon and egg socks! 😀 😀 😀

    Akemi and Bubba are too good to you. The truffles look great!

  5. We all know Akemi is awesome! Even those of use who _haven’t_ tasted the truffles? Are you getting an occasional breakfast bento box? 🙂

    Great to have Ms. Tapping as director. She’s quite talented, in front of, and behind the cameras! You are lucky to have such a wealth of talent to draw on for Dark Matter.

  6. I love fun socks! I must know where she finds these great socks. Please, Joe, find out for us and let us know. Thanks!

  7. Thanks for turning the socks around. Now. How about a picture of your 3rd AD… 😛

  8. @Ponytail: The shot of the Taiwan plane going down reminded me of the vis-effects in the Nicolas Cage movie, “Knowing”. There was a plane crash in that film that looked very much like the real thing. Amazing!

  9. Earl Gray truffles? I’m all in! It’s my favorite tea.

    Space beer? Yeah, I’m still all in.

  10. Totally unrelated, but do you have any picture of Editor Brad Rines?
    I collect photos for cast & crew of Stargate and can’t find anything in the depths of the internet…

  11. @Dark chocolate Earl Grey tea truffles and…

    Earl Grey tea is a unique twist with truffles, at least in my opinion. They look really good too.
