Huzzah!  I finished the first draft of my pitch for the Dark Matter miniseries.  I spent a couple of hours sourcing images to incorporate into the document, will take the weekend to review and polish, then send Jay’s way on Monday.  I’ll eventually post it here on this blog for you all to check out before we go out with it.  Ideally, I’d love to have an actor, maybe even a cast member, record an audio version of the pitch and then hire an editor to assemble visuals drawn from the original series.

It’s coming together, slowly but surely…


Heading down that slippery slope…


Speaking of slippery slopes….

Real-time deepfakes could bring chaos to your next Zoom call

As if we don’t have enough to worry about…

Growing risk of once-in-a-century solar superstorm that could knock out internet, study says

What is it they say?  If it talks like a duck…

Scientists find talking duck

Today’s Yes/No…

Surprisingly – or maybe not – this one is a definite NO from me.

  1. I’m sure that pitch will be awesome. If you could get one of the cast to do a voice promo that would rock! We’d have to be able to hear it too, though. 🙂

    Well, YouTube is a another garbage social media platform that lets rampant disinformation slip through while booting off legitimate channels for little reason. Also, they treat their content creators like crap. Unfortunately, for a lot of these channels YouTube is the only game in town.

    I know you hate fruit desserts, but that apple pie ice cream bar sounds perfect to me!

  2. Yep. We done gone down that slope and got diabetes from living sedentary after the knee injuries. Oops. The 90’s clothes derailed the analogy into a real sledding crash story.

    I’ll go brush up on my Hayek then polish my resume or apply for a new Llc. I only need to read the last few pages of Road to Serfdom this time. The rest is water under the bridge.

  3. Yay, that’s wonderful! Having it read by one of the actors with a visual presentation would be a cincher.

  4. Oooo the Dark Matter miniseries first draft – the best news for ages!
    I really wish you so much luck with this.

  5. I don´t know about that ice cream bar, but apple/cinnamon ice cream? Yum! And if you plopp that atop an actual apple pie and top it with apple/cinnamon mûsli . HEAVEN!!! So dang delicious!

  6. Oh, Dark Matter! The world needs good news. Fingers crossed for that project.

    Yes, to the Apple Pie Ice Cream Bar!

    Yes, I agree with Slippery Slopes. We live in interesting times and it is very confusing. People have been adjusting language to suit their agenda. Not to mention, infectious disease experts are being censored for not towing the party line. It’s hard to know what to believe. I mean, the CDC sure haven’t been consistent.

    I’m not against vaccine mandates in certain businesses but the message isn’t consistent from the WH. So he wants to mandate vaccinations for federal workers but USPS AND congress are exempt? https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/members-of-congress-and-their-staff-are-exempt-from-bidens-vaccine-mandate/ar-AAOiQvC?ocid=BingNewsSearch How does that make sense? I suppose they have better unions?

    Best to change the subject, have you seen this weird story? https://news.yahoo.com/theres-zebras-backyard-escaping-farm-151907579.html?guccounter=1&guce_referrer=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuYmluZy5jb20v&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAAITiBoBnk81HCuqHy9t7CzP2VK1qTc3fdH1G8PpyAMxY1_mf2BdisFd-KOmDvl7bfs6w6UKcpe53Rlh24lxPMmCq0AZhOHMJyL_cY12CU6tHUZuT6My7RKxIJbeBFFCFHGS5nQNJmYRt-0pXux4JeucXvV4yswhmIBEXbJfECBDc I would have love having a zebra in my backyard.

    Big plans this weekend? Not much going on at our house. I went to see my Mom yesterday and she’s doing great! Her house is a mess though. I keep offering to pay for a house cleaner but it’s a no go. Next time she’s in the hospital, I’m going to clear some of the crap out and do some scrubbing. My Mom is a minor hoarder. You can walk through the rooms ok but don’t open any closets/cabinets. It makes my OCD cringe.

    Ponytail: Keep working on your brother to get vaxxed. Will he get the flu shot? It’s supposed to help with severe covid symptoms: https://www.news-medical.net/news/20210804/Flu-vaccine-may-provide-vital-protection-against-COVID-19-study-shows.aspx

  7. Maybe I should go on a transcanada (no-internet) rail trip during the solar superstorm …
