Akemi’s artwork featuring many of the pugs she follows on instagram.  Trying to convince to do a book.

Okay.  I’ve limited myself to two desserts a day (not including chocolate which, of course, can be enjoyed freely throughout) and I already feel more energetic.  I don’t believe I’ve lost any weight yet, but I only started this morning.  Will let you all know how it goes.

Later today, Stargate fans!  I join David Read to discuss SG-1’s 9th season…


Alrighty.  I’ve finished showing you all of the concept art from SG-1’s first season.  Now, we move on to season 2.  Can you identify the episodes?

  1. yeah I know what you mean. I haven’t lost weight yet either on my diet. But I start tomorrow so there is still hope.

    Akemi’s art is fantastic! Write a story to go along with it. Come on. No guts no glory.

  2. Definitely agree with the Akemi book. I was on the YouTube Live interview today. I was 15 minutes late though so sorry about that. Enjoyed it though.

  3. Thanks so much to everyone who have been pitching in with med fund $, RT’s
    and am absolutely loving the humor showing up in my inbox.
    You Guys Rock! Keep those jokes coming! 😀 😀

    It’s been well over three weeks and counting trying to get a hold of SSI with no luck
    and I’ve already applied for what resources I qualify for via the hospital.
    I couldn’t even begin to consider getting my first surgery if I hadn’t already done that.
    They made me do that the last time i had to be hospitalized for the current infections.
    Doctors and hospitals want to know how they’re gonna get paid,
    before any attending doctor even steps foot in your room.
    I’m also already on sliding scale doctor visits,
    but the necessary increased visits and co-pays
    are still costing more than I’ve currently got coming in.
    I’m already scraping the bottom of the barrel in housing and medical care.
    I’m already working day and night, on little sleep, as hard and as quickly as i can,
    and my body and mind are already being pushed well beyond exhaustion and tears these last couple months. It feels like a really bad joke, because doctors keep telling me one of the most important factors
    in this fight is doing everything i can to keep my stress levels down as low as possible.
    With all the stress, I’m just lucky the growth is still within stage 2.
    It’s not gonna remain there for long.
    Albeit, I’ve already made more progress toward toward adapting to and stabilizing the housing and health
    issues in the last eight weeks, than most will ever have to deal with over the course of 10 years!

    While I’m sure the insurance and income resource issues will eventually all work out,
    as i previously mentioned, this is a faster moving and different type of growth than before.
    In a perfect world it’d politely wait on slow resource responses and bureaucratic red tape
    to make it a fairer fight. But it wont.
    ILC doesn’t have a mind or heart or human compassion.
    It just aims to spread and end me. It’s what cancer does.
    It also takes every last penny of what you got and then some to fight it
    and insurance ‘never’ covers everything,
    even for those with a reasonable amount of coverage.
    It’s why so many victims post medical fundraisers.
    My best shot to beat it before it spreads any further is to get the current infections
    tackled, pronto. Get my weight & immune system built up faster. And get the first surgery
    scheduled as quickly as is possible. Waiting on slow resource responses and red tape
    only serves to let it get stronger and make my fight that much tougher and longer
    and my odds of complete remission and long term survival that much lower.
    I can’t let that happen. I plan to fight like hell and be faster and stronger than this demon.
    I plan to win!

    Help me fight.

  4. Akemi’s art is adorable! With your writing and her artwork, why not do a pug comic series? Even if it starts as a limited run, charity fund raiser for your favorite rescue, I’m sure your fans would buy. Look at the titles that sell… anything you would produce would be equal to or better than what’s out there.

    Thanks so much for the high quality concept art scans from “Prisoners” and “The Gamekeeper”. I never get weary of seeing concept compared to production. What talented people it took to crank out such high quality week after week for twenty seasons! From sets to costumes to props, it all looked so great on screen. And vfx was incredible, too!
