Even though it’s the weekend and we’re not on our sets shooting (for a change), I still can’t quite escape the pull of Dark Matter. I just spent the past two hours reviewing the director’s cut of Episode 204. A very robust director’s cut of 204. I’ve made the easy trims but the next round of cuts are going to get just a little more painful. There’s A LOT going on in this episode and it’ll be a challenge not to lose too many of my darlings.
Ah, just as well. With the temperature plummeting to record lows for this winter season, I didn’t feel like going out anyway. BUT that didn’t stop Akemi and I from meeting up with our friend Jeff – visiting from Chicago – and hitting the farmer’s market and a sausage-themed restaurant called WVRST for lunch where we sampled five delicious varieties. Well, four delicious varieties plus the weird vegetarian option Akemi ordered.
My favorite was the barese for 2. Just the right amount of char and Grana Padano cheesiness.
Jeff, as usual, came bearing gifts. A couple of southern literary items (including an eater’s guide to Savannah) and these two lovely bottles.
Interesting bottle design.
And another delightful bourbon to add to my ever-growing collection.
Akemi managed to find this fashionable hat for Bubba, just in time for the downturn in the weather.
Another review of Episode 204 tomorrow. But only after a trip to our fave Toronto comic shop The Silver Snail. What’s on YOUR comic list?
