August 19, 2020: Stargate BTS video! Mountain Dew Doritos Cupcakes! And the Crime Club convenes to discuss Mother!

Behind the scenes on Stargate: Universe, "Water". What do you think?  Yes/No https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1296085067945725955 The Crime Club convenes to discuss the South Korean thriller Mother. In a word - Wow! Director Bong Joon-ho is known for movies like Parasite, Snowpiercer, and The Host, but it seems like everyone (including yours truly) has slept on this one.…

August 18, 2020: Locking down my writing schedule! The Crime Club convenes to discuss Once Upon a Time in America!

Alrighty, time to lock down my writing schedule for the next few months.  Yesterday, I delivered the series overview for that fantasy book adaptation.  This week, I finish off the pitch for the out-there hero.  I'm dedicating all of September to the pilot and overview for that far-future series that will combine my love of…

August 17, 2020: On breakfast, brunches, and late dinners! The Crime Club convenes to discuss A Touch of Sin!

Akemi is genuinely lack toast intolerant.  If she doesn't get to eat her toast in the morning, she can get downright cranky.  I, on the other hand, never eat breakfast.  I'm never particularly hungry in the morning and I always like to work up a good appetite before lunch which is always my biggest meal…

August 15, 2020: From the Stargate vault – SGU’s “Space”! The Crime Club reconvenes to discuss Bunny Lake is Missing!

Fromt he Stargate vault... We had the most beautiful sets on Stargate: Universe.  Pictured above, the interior alien vessel from "Space" c/o Production Designer James Robbins and our amazing departments (art, construction, paint, lighting, etc.) Director Andy Mikita talks shop with actor Louis Ferreira (Stargate Universe - "Space"). Our resident (motion capture) alien chilling between…

August 14, 2020: This bodes ill! Cake shake! The Crime Club convenes to discuss 36th Precinct!

I woke up this morning with a dark sense of foreboding, I assumed, logically, as a result of some unremembered nightmare I'd had the night before.  But, as it turns out, it was prescience.  I turned on my laptop and brought up the overview I've been working on - only to discover the work I'd…

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…

August 12, 2020: Not giving up my day job! The Crime Club convenes to discuss Three Kings!

Hey, have you noticed how those financial gurus on youtube all dress like they shop at Goodwill?  Would you take investment advice from someone who looks like your uncle from his vacation photos in Boca Rotan? No, it would seem the only one you can rely on to make sound financial decisions in your interest…

August 11, 2020: Chocolate covered jalapeños, bunker-mode, and the Crime Club convenes to discussion Confessions!

Whoa.  How's this for a culinary Yes/No? https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1293197073639264257 Now as much as I love chocolate and jalapeños and peanut butter (Yes, that's a peanut butter liquid center and not cheese) I'm not sure I can get behind this.  The combination is weird.  Apple pie and cheddar cheese slice weird. (Hmm.  I seemed to have lost…

August 10, 2020: Heroes, Villains, and Hot Cheetos King Crab Legs! The Crime Club convenes to discuss Hard Boiled!

So, Yes/No? https://twitter.com/foodhip/status/1291239345593159680 As much as I admire the ingenuity - and love spicy - I think it's a terrible injustice done to those sweet crab legs.  So, no. Question: If you finish something early, do you deliver early?  Or do you sit on it until the deadline? Film-themed questions! https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1292238266784243712 A hero's private life…

August 8, 2020: Choose your universe! Zoom chatting! And the Crime Club reconvenes to discuss Kahaani!

https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1291866753434255368 So, what do you think? Good zoom chat last night with boo readers Lori, Kevin, and Shane.  Topics covered included Stargate's SG-1, Atlantis, and Universe, Dark Matter, writing, and standing out on your lawn under the sprinklers on a hot summer's day.  A great time was had by all (I can only assume!). The…

August 7, 2020: Fruit Loop doughnuts, great comedians who are no longer with us, and the Crime Club reconvenes to discuss Reservoir Dogs.

Well, today's the day of our big group zoom chat.  Because all four participants are in four different time zones, looks like we'll be kicking things off at 9:00 p.m. my time.  Yes, we'll be eating into my bedtime, but I'm sure it'll be worth it! This morning, Akemi was incensed to learn that despite…

August 6, 2020: Hostage messages, floral doughnuts, and the Crime Club convenes to discuss Green Room!

https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1291349393703084034 So, what's your secret hostage message? Received word today on one of the pitches.  We're graduating to full take (!) meaning I'll be fleshing out that original 5 page summary into a full 12-15 page overview covering the pilot, the series, the world and its characters, and, of course, my vision for season 1…
