Who’s up for a mailbag? I am! If you are too, leave me your burning questions in the comment section.
You know what’s annoying? When people say “Hey, our team wanted to reach out to you regarding your efforts to save the show but didn’t know how to get in touch.” The fuck? Really? My perfectly legible name is onscreen as the series co-creator and Executive Producer. Also the writer on fully half the show’s script. That knowledge, combined with an awareness of something called google should have been all you needed. Unable to get in touch? Really?
So just in case you ARE looking to get in touch, this is the place. Leave a comment here on the blog. I read every one because I moderate every one. And, because I moderate every one, if you want to discuss something on the down low, just say so and I won’t approve your comment for public consumption.
Twitter is an equally good way to get in touch. Now, I know, twitter is, for the most part, the exclusive domain of rage-a-holics looking to roast people for the most seemingly inconsequential utterances and political partisans eager to dub anyone who
disagrees with them doesn’t agree with them doesn’t wholeheartedly enthusiastically support everything THEY believe inhuman monsters, but it is a good way to reach out to people.
Failing that, you can always go with reddit where I am still fairly active in the Dark Matter, Stargate and, of course, fantasy football communities.
If you try to get in touch with me on facebook – well, you’re out of luck. That Joseph Mallozzi facebook page was set up by a fan and while administrator privileges have been handed over to me, I rarely venture over. My actual facebook account is under Baron Destructo – but I rarely bother checking that one out. Let’s be real. Facebook is only used by the elderly as a way of keeping in touch with distant family. I am honestly amazed it’s still kicking around.
Yeah, I have an instagram account, but I’ll be damned if I know how to use it. Last week, Akemi showed me how to access the messenger section of the app and I discovered an archive of old unread texts dating as far back as 2016. And, I’ll be honest. It’ll probably be another two years before I check again.
Probably the best way to get in touch is the most direct. Just stop me in public and say hi. As was the case the other day when, while on my way to a pitch, a woman stopped and asked “Are you Jeff?” “No, but do you need a Joe?”I asked. “Jeff,”she said. “No, Joe,”I said. “Joe Mallozzi,”she said. Turns out she was a producer and huge Stargate: Atlantis fan. And, also, she WAS saying Joe (as Vanessa later informed me). So, yes, the direct personal approach is best, but there’s no guarantee I’ll understand what you’re saying.

So, after much back and forth and spending of money for upgrades, and working through a plethora of bugs, and spending even more money, we finally settled on this blog theme. What do you think? Me? I hate it.
