“Talented people is always crazy so don’t worry.” – Akemi, today on the subject of yours truly.
The other week, Akemi called me an “evil testicle”. I assumed this was the literal translation of some Japanese diss but it turned out she was simply repeating an insult I’d once hurled at someone. Or so she claimed.
“Evil testicle?”I asked. “I’ve never called someone an evil testicle.”
But she insisted I most certainly had – and reminded me of the exact circumstances. I realized she was right. Sort of.
“Not evil testicle,”I said. “Egotistical!”
“What’s the difference?”she wanted to know.
“Not much,”I conceded.
Hey, check it out! Big news involving a couple of Stargate vets: NBC To Pick Up Canadian Medical Drama Series ‘Saving Hope’ For Summer NBC has picked up Saving Hope starring Erica Durance and SG-1′s own Michael Shanks. Meanwhile, CW is finalizing plans to pick up Golden Boy Martin Gero’s series The L.A. Complex. I hear one more Stargate alum has landed a big genre gig, but the news hasn’t gone public yet so I’m going to have to sit on that particular tidbit for the time being. Nevertheless, congratulations all around!
Check out the Canadian premiere of Martin Gero’s The L.A. Complex Tuesday, January 10th and 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on CTV and Muchmusic.
And the very next day, head on down to your local comic store to pick up the first issue of my new SF comic book series, Dark Matter. If walking isn’t your cup of tea, then I suggest ordering the comic book online here (TFAW.com) or snagging yourself a digital copy here (Dark Horse Digital). Oh, and speaking of Dark Matter, here’s another interview I just did, this one with our long-time Stargate buddy Steve Eramo over at The Morton Report: Stargate’s Joseph Mallozzi Unveils Dark Matter
Met up with my Tokyo travel buddy, Ivon Bartok, today for lunch at La Taqueria (Pinche Taco Shop). A terrific meal followed by some discussion on an exciting side project. The plan is to do a little research, toss around some ideas with Paul, then write the script and produce a trailer. Fast-tracking this one as I prepare to head down to L.A. and start pitching Dark Matter: The Series!
