I try to maintain an open line of communication with fandom, through this blog and various other social media platforms. It’s something I’ve been doing for years now and I quite enjoy getting to know people. There are occasions, however, when I feel I have to draw the line. Specifically –
Do not direct message me to ask me to deliver a message to a cast member. Most of them maintain their own social media presence and you can reach out to them directly. If you do and they don’t get back to you, take that as a no and move on.
I don’t mind answering fan DM’s if they don’t feel comfortable putting something out in public, but if it’s simply to chat or ask questions about a show I’ve worked on, please stick to the public forums so fellow fans can be enlightened as well.
Don’t reach out to me on facebook or linkedin and expect a response within 2-3 months.
Under no circumstances am I interested in reading your Stargate ideas. I don’t own the rights to the franchise so I can’t do anything about it.
Even though I worked on a series that featured ascended beings, I”m not at all interested in reading about them. Other topics I’m not interested in reading about include: mysticism, conspiracies, the NBA, the self-help racket, pretty much any book involving magic, dragons, or a character who at some point is referred to as “the chosen one”.
Also, no one spoil the election results for me. I’m recording CNN and plan to watch this weekend.
Last night, the Orville Nation panel and I discussed Dark Matter Episode 5. Check out the video. Chock full of insights. Now with 20% MORE ZOMBIES!
