April 17, 2015: Behind The Scenes On Your New Favorite Show – Dark Matter!  And A Jelly Update!

Because you asked, extra nicely, here’s a picture of Dark Matter’s Commander Truffault of the Mikkei Combine (Torri Higginson) standing alongside ONE (Marc Bendavid).  Wait.  Is that  the mess hall?  What is she doing onboard the ship?

Consulting Producer Ivon Bartok was looking a little piqued so we placed him in quarantine.  Nighty night to our brave little soldier.  See you Monday morning!

The concept meet for episode #112.  Or was it the concept meeting for episode #113?  Whichever.  Andy Mikita is directing both.

The request list in the production office kitchen.  I’m checking the fridge first thing next week.

A shoutout to a blog regular and her recent whisky/whiskey rant.  Hey, Ponytail, looks like the Dark Matter crew checks the blog as well.

April 17, 2015: Behind The Scenes On Your New Favorite Show – Dark Matter!  And A Jelly Update!

Thanks to everyone who was inquiring about my elderly pug, Jelly.  She seemed kind of logy the other night.  But I’m pleased to report that she’s back to her old cantankerous self.  Akemi suspects she just may have eaten too much omelet.

Speaking of Akemi – she’s the birthday girl tomorrow!  We celebrate with couple’s massages, a trip to the sunglass shop, sushi dinner, and the director’s cut of episode #108!

  1. I’m diggin’ the darker look for the android. Like it better than the blue w/space belt ensemble. 😊

  2. Tell Akemi happy birthday for me and give her a big birthday hug!

    So glad to hear Jelly’s back in form. I’m feeling a bit better again today myself. Even went on a short day hike here in Sedona. Tuckered me out a bit though.

    Hah! That Ponytail reference is so cool!

  3. @Sparrow_Hawk, @gforce and @Line Noise: Thanks for the suggestions and website link for stump removal. I was hoping for the cheapest method possible, but the fastest way might be the best. The town used a grinder on the stubborn, sprouty stumps on our boulevard last year. I’ll call a tree service and get a quote. 🙂

    @Joe Very happy Jelly is feeling better. Love that photo of her.

    @Akemi: have an excellent Birthday tomorrow!

  4. *tips hat to Ponytail*

    Nothing further to report for the SVRF. About to lose free communication access, due leaving Sy(redacted)ey accomodation. Will report later from A(redacted)e, where I hope to see mutual friends from the past.

  5. woohoo! Congratulations, Ponytail. You’ve been immortalized – and on a Dark Matter whiskey bottle, no less!

    I’m glad to hear that Jelly is feeling better.

  6. Seriously, thank you for the bottle of Whiskey! You can do a lot with all the interesting names in your blog comments.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY sweet girl AKEMI !! Remember, birthdays last at least a week.

    Good to see more of ONE. (and Torri)!

    Glad your beautiful girl Jelly is doing good. She is a pretty dog!

  7. Akemi, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you(tomorrow)! Hope you all have a wonderful day!! Enjoy!! Have some cake for me!
    ~You should send Lulu over to keep Ivon company…
    ..and maybe ponytail should get a shot at the bottle there..
    ~~Go Jelly!!!

  8. I would like to wish Akemi a very happy birthday hope she will have a great day . Glad to hear that Jelly is feeling better

  9. A very happy birthday to Akemi!

    Joe, please take Ponytail’s time reference and double it.
    Akemi DESERVES 2 weeks – 14 days – of birthday!!!

    Great update on Jelly.

  10. Glad to see a familiar face back in the director’s chair. Joe, I thought you were teasing us with Martin Wood. Reviewing season 6 in which Martin did many commentaries and Andy was in the credits. No Peter D.? Your senses of humor see evenly matched (joking).
    ? You and Paul have been the sole writers for the 1st season, correct? Are there plans to expand the writing pool? If so, is their anyone I mind? Is there a new “Joel Goldberg” for the series yet?

    As it is the 18th here in Thailand I can say happy to your Girl,Akemi! Warm regards and many more years to come.

    Many kind thought for Jelly too.

  11. @GFORCE
    *COOL*!!

    @PONYTAIL
    **SWEET**!! — Make sure “THEY” actually SEND you a BOTTLE! – a FULL one!

    @AKEMI
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! 😀
    And tell Joe, that you should have your own “Boutique” on the “SPACE STATION”! With a big flashy sign with your name on it!
    😀

  12. G’day

    Happy Birthday Akemi <3
    Make sure Joe spoils you.
    Glad to see Jelly is doing better.

  13. Wow, it was busy on the blog last night. I was curled up with my hubby and kitty watching “Guardians of the Galaxy”.

    Happy Birthday Akemi!!!! I hope today is fun.

    Torri looks amazing! She’s like Ming-Na Wen and never ages. I might have to hate them. 😉

    Thanks for the Jelly update and I’m so happy she’s feeling better! My kitty is hanging in there but not back to his normal self. I hate seeing them get old…

    gforce: Amazing pictures!

  14. @ Roxanne Borris THE Roxanne Borris? “1st Assistant Art Director and Graphics Maestro” Roxanne Borris? Sign queen, logo guru, emblem ace, home made goodies whiz, cookie tag expert Roxanne Borris? Wow! Thank you for the mention! That was extremely nice of you. I wonder what else you have hidden in your signage? You could really have some fun there. Thank you again. That was very sweet!

  15. Hi Joe
    I don’t know why, but Torri looks like a cardboard cutout in that top picture.
    Congrats on the shout out Ponytail.

    Elminster

  16. @Ponytail That is too awesome. But are you part Pinocchino? Aged in wood?

    And a pug birthday shout-out to Akemi! Hope you had a wonderful day. Jeff hated couples massage. He said it was one of the most uncomfortable things he ever did with or without me. But I have to give him thumbs up for at least trying before rendering his pre-rendered decision (he wasn’t happy about going).
