I wanted to look my best for the first day of prep, so I decided to go with this black, grey, and burgundy ensemble.  Note the turtle cuffs (a present from Akemi) and the cat socks (another gift from Akemi).

Akemi marked the occasion by baking up a bunch of home made chocolate oatmeal with dried cherries and coconut flakes.  They were a hit and Props Master Victoria Klein declared them “Ten on ten!”.

Hey!  We got the band back together!  And director Ron Murphy is back on lead vocals!  We positively breezed through today’s concept meetings for Episodes 301 and 304.

We followed with a brief walk-thru of our second stage to refresh our memories and make sure no one had taken the Marauder for another joyride.

Careful!  These walls are out of control!

Construction has already begun on that room for scene 8.

It’s going to be austere yet cozy in its military simplicity.

Hey, guys, relax!  The Marauder’s exactly where we parked it.

Six boxes of Marauder control parts and two boxes of chicken hearts.  Don’t ask.

Reconfiguring the former Hyperion-8 cells for far-out future use.

We returned to the Production Offices and gathered to review casting, finally nailing down the roles of Adrian Maro and Ash.  Whenever I sit down to watch auditions, I’m always amazed by the many great performances we have to choose from.  And the occasional out-of-left-field interpretation of the material that will yield the following stunned response from yours truly –

  1. Those cookies look very yummy. There’s one cookie I make with dried cherries and I pair it with bittersweet chocolate.

    You’re looking very dapper and the socks look great!

  2. Look at you! It’s like the first day of school! 🙂 The turtle links especially are very awesome.

    I love the look from you and Ivon in that last pic. Kind of a disbelieving amusement. I wish I had seen the audition!

  3. Cat socks, fancy shoes
    And I don’t know where I am goin’ to.
    Grey suit, pocket tie,
    I don’t need a reason why.
    They come runnin’ just as fast as they can

    Cause every girl crazy ’bout a sharp dressed man.

    Gold watch, diamond ring,
    I ain’t missin’ not a single thing.
    Turtle cufflinks, stick pin,
    When I step out I’m gonna do you in.
    They come runnin’ just as fast as they can

    ‘Cause every girl crazy ’bout a sharp dressed man.

    Grey suit, no hat,
    And I don’t worry coz my wallet’s fat.
    Black shades, forgot my gloves,
    Lookin’ sharp lookin’ for the crew
    They come runnin’ just as fast as they can

    ‘Cause every girl crazy ’bout a sharp dressed man.

  4. Snazzy! Beautiful shoes. I adore good footwear, although I can’t wear fancy shoes anymore, and my husband only will for costuming (seriously, you should see his red thigh high stiletto boots … wow).

    I rather like the painting behind you. Is it something worth knowing about, or a generic piece?

    Yum, the cookies are drool inducing.

    Love seeing the sets and the build process. Exciting!

    @Ponytail … first thing which popped into my head, your version of the lyrics are terrific.

  5. I believe @Ponytail said it all. Nothing says confidence like a pair of burgundy cat socks! Ready, set, … GO!

    Wish I knew how to the enlarge the backgrounds on the conference room walls to get a better look at what I am sure are super secret blueprints, photos, first draft designs, S3 hints and tid bits.

  6. Wow, so fancy I feel you should be behind velvet rope! Love the cuffs and socks, but those shoes are super fab. Color me pocket squared.

    Yeah that look is my city walking look, like when I saw the Pirates mascot tooling around my neighborhood on a scooter. Nothing says baseball season like a big green bird roaring by like a furry SOA gangsta.

  7. @Ponytail…great job!

    Now I’ve got that song stuck in my head. Could be worse; at least I like that song. I may have to go play Burger Man to switch it up a little bit though…

  8. @Ponytail As I was scrolling down to the comments I was thinking of that song, too, and was going to go look for the YouTube link. Your lyrics are GREAT!!!

    Sounds like a great day. The cookies sound delicious.
