February 12, 2021: An All Stargate Blog Entry!

So I've been asked to comment on this recent "breaking news" regarding a rumored sale of MGM to Disney... https://twitter.com/iaw84u/status/1358861584127393795 Yes, there's a possibility this could happen but, in fairness, we've heard similar rumors in the past that never panned out.  Still, I find it interesting as Disney would be a good fit for one…

February 5, 2021: Busy Day! Here, have some Stargate concept art and cosmic brownies!

Whew!  What a day.  Got feedback on the Project F pilot and the Powder Mage overview, strategized regarding three more projects, did some stock research, sourced and sent off some tax documents to my agent, and had four zoom calls with some amazing young and talented writers.  Oh, and also - and most importantly -…

January 26, 2021: Powder progress, fried chicken sandwiches, and Stargate concept art!

A productive day.  Completed a first draft of the Powder Mage overview and got some excellent feedback from author Brian McClellan.  Will do another pass, get it out and, after that, it'll be smooooooth sailing! https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1353493659384213505 I have come to the conclusion that there are only two places for good barbecue in Toronto - Barque…

January 23, 2021: Saturday salmagundi!

So who do you got into tomorrow's games?  I'm rooting for a Bills-Packers Super Bowl.  Failing that, recount of this year's playoff games that would disallow turnovers south of the Mason-Dixie line, thus setting up a Titans-Saints Super Bowl. Jonas Quinn!  Fandom wars!  And check marks are bad!  David Reed and and I talk Stargate:…

10 Most Underrated Stargate Episodes

So I came across this article the other day... 10 Most Underrated Stargate Episodes It's a lot of fun, but I do question some of the episodes included in this list, not because I don't believe they're deserving, but due to the fact I don't consider them underrated.  Maybe by critics or the greater audience…

September 30, 2020: And one from the Dark Matter vault!

Those who know me know that I'm a huge anime fan. Back in Vancouver, my collection was 3000 dvd's deep. So it should come as no surprise that Dark Matter was heavily influenced by the genre, everything from the character of FOUR and his connection to the Principality of Zairon to FIVE who is a…

August 22, 2020: From the Dark Matter vault! And the Crime Club discusses Berlin Syndrome!

Some pics from the Dark Matter vault.  Fun on set! Our Crime Club reconvenes to discuss the 2017 thriller Berlin Syndrome. Hmmmm.  Even though this one is generating a surprising amount of online buzz, it really failed to impress.  It's a standard thriller in the vein of The Collector (guy kidnaps woman and keeps her locked…

August 13, 2020: Stargate Stuff! And the Crime Club convenes to discuss Caché!

I was going through my old hard drives and came across a slew of Stargate-related photos.  Unfortunately, the cable, as well as the hard drive itself, are a little wonky and I'm only able to snag a handful of photos at a time before the connection is severed.  But this is what I got so…

July 21, 2020: Answering YOUR questions!

Alrighty.  It's been forever since I've done one of these, so let's get to it.  Opening the mailbag... Egal writes: "A while back you tweeted that you gave your old stargate behind the scenes box to MGM.  Is there any news on that?"
