September 10, 2021: Slippery Slopes and News of Note!

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…

https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1436091811458658307 Sometimes, when I complain of stomach pain after using my hot sauces, she'll be like: "See!  It's gone bad!" to which I rightly point out: "It's hot sauce.  That's how you know it's working!" https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1436075948298973188 What's next?  Transfer Transit? https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1436057775495393285 Weird, no?  What's next?  Dreamcather's Red Sun?

September 7, 2021: Projects, Soups and Dogs, and Yes/No!

Yatta!  Pilot outline completed.  It clocks in at a robust 23 pages, but since it's the pilot, I wanted to include some nuance and detail to the characters, their interactions, and the myriad storylines.  It's dynamic, character driven, and does a nice job of introducing the world and its colorful players. With that done, I…

September 4, 2021: Hurray for bourbon!

https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1434238386521395209 I honestly hate it.  I fucking hate it.  I''ve often said that writers must master three skills in this industry: generating ideas, pitching, and, oh yeah, actual writing.  The maddening thing is that the system is weighted towards those who can pitch over those who can actually deliver on the page.  Positively mediocre writers…

September 3, 2021: What lies ahead!

Hmmm.   It would appear MGM has completely forgotten the existence of three Stargate series.  Please help remind them... https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1433860984574201858 https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1433849049996726272 https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1433841606411575298 Today's Yes/No... https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1433788628908625927 Yesterday, we received the final art work for "Project F" from illustrator Henry Fong.  The absolutely stunning pieces included character designs, a detailed design of The Citadel including its Embarkation…

September 2, 2021: Read between the tweet lines!

So, came across the following video the other day.  Dr. John Campbell has been offering terrific science-based updates on the pandemic since its beginnings - and this latest is pretty significant. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JhRb5hnTseU If he is right, and the experts are resigned to Covid becoming endemic, then what does that mean for vaccine passports or mask…

August 31, 2021: The Sliding Scale of Moral Outrage

I am constantly amazed by individuals who are quick to call out the ineptitude and wrongdoing of others, especially politicians, yet will excuse, defend or simply ignore incompetence and misconduct when it's "their guy".  I mean, I have nothing but sympathy for the partisan hacks who can only view right and wrong through the myopic…

August 29, 2021: Suji Sunday!

The look on Suji's face this afternoon when someone on facebook reported that she had crossed the rainbow bridge.  She was, of course, immediately worried about how this would affect tonight's dinner schedule. Pug got your tongue! She's wondering what you're thinking. Such swagger. Hoping for another snack.

August 29, 2021: A photo-tastic blog entry!

I've been remiss in uploading photos of late, so I'm making up said lengthy omission with this photo-tastic entry... The recent haul from Akemi's patio garden.  Not pictured: tomatoes, chives, and zucchini. Akemi came across an old cookbook and became inspired to try out some new (old) recipes.  A killer tiramisu that I topped with…

August 27, 2021: Fried Chicken Frenzy!

https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1431267332064743434 Today, I made the trek down to Toronto's Parkdale district so that I could check out Dave's Hot Chicken along with fellow fried chicken aficionado (and writer-producer) Alex Levine.   The menu is fairly straightforward: chicken tenders or sliders (OR a one of each!), fries, slaw, fountain drinks and milkshakes.  But there's a little…
