Don't be hatin' cuz he's salivatin'



They're not as bad as everyone makes them out to be, you know. "Oooh a Wraith!" I mean really. Just because they suck the life out of you and feed on your flesh and blood doesn't mean they don't just need a little hug every now and then. They have feelings, worries, and mortgage payments to make too. Their friends and partners sometimes misunderstand them, their Darts sometimes breakdown just when they have a final exam to get to, or a court date to make. They burn their spindly insect-like fingers on the toaster when making cheese toasts (you didn't know they eat that, did you?...) Just like you and me.
.
Take Ewan the Wraith for example (not his real name. His real name is Scott.) Nice guy, culled a coupl'a villages, decimated populations, you know - normal guy - turns out - he plays a wicked saxophone. Who knew? Loves Miles Davis (especially his later years), smokes Gitanes, worries about who will replace Tony Blair. Normal guy. Just need to talk to him to find out.
.
Opened my eyes.

Oh yeah. And he drives a pink Cadillac. (in the bg) no. wait. that's Momoa.

It just *kills* me that Jason drives a pink Cadillac.

Kahla said...

Cool title. Is that the start of your rap to rival Hewlett? Hehehe.

sueKay said...

Do we have a wraith worshipper in the making? nooo!!! lol :D

salivia_baker said...

I always thought so! jus nobody listens to me :(
Ewan is a cool name for a wraith (but scott would be also ^^) I just wait for a Sean (or let's be more exotic and take Shawn :P)

And I bet it's also pretty hard to keep the hand clean! We don't want an infected hand a Wraith could die on that!

iB said...

Just like I always said (and thought, somebody should talk to them. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us and your really cool title.
I think there should be a Czech Wraith, what do you think?...

Paula said...

It's nice that you're trying to work through the sterotypes. End Wraith racism!

I would think those teeth would make it hard to play the saxophone....

M said...

Whoa cool pics!

I still wouldn't go near a wraith if I ever came across one say if there were such creatures! :D

Gonna check out those videos on your sidebar - what are they? I'm very intrigued!

Ya know, you're spoiling us with all these lovely pics - uh, not that I'm complaining! :D

Ange said...

A grilled cheese sandwich is all very well and good (and delicious with some salami), but they can't be too easy to eat when you have teeth like that.

Though it'd be nice to not have to worry about grey hair.

Neep said...

Brilliant. They just need someone like you to see them for who they are.

This is coming from the girl who always thought the storm troopers just needed a hug.

crownglass39 said...

Nice shots!

Lapis said...

End Wraithism! (Sorry, Paula, but it had to be done.)

Does anyone know why I am awake at 4:46 in the blessed Ay-Em? Ah well.

Did James have another gig this week? Or did you just need more Wraith for some reason? And really, you guys have to stop Sheppard naming Wraith anymore. Honestly - Evan? Next thing you know, you'll be asking if Mikey liked him...

OK, going back to bed now.

Jen said...

Ohh, lord! Hysterics at the image of a wraith making and eating cheese toast... I'm at the uni computer lab and everyone else is studying - well - they were studying - now they're staring at the weird laughing girl...!! Who knew wraith were just so, um...!!

Misty aka s_aurius said...

Thanks for the cool new pics and update! :)

Ohh and I love the vids you added to the sidebar :D There are some great ones!

Library-Gryffon said...

Wriath don't just eat toasted cheese, they use normal earth-style snaps on their clothes!

I swear, spend any time at all doing theater tech and/or costuming and it affects you for the rest of your life. 8)

I love the photos. And the film clips on the sidebar - the first is the scene that made Dr. Z my favorite Atlantean.

darklock said...

Saxophone? Guh.

Thank-you for the update *and* for the vids in the sidebar.

Mel said...

Yay! You updated... only took a week this time!

I love vids on your sidebar, though, I was kinda sad when they killed your character on Jake 2.0.

Letters from Pegasus--love that episode and that scene is just great. "Security Clearance?" You can just hear the "Oops" in it!!!

Thank, David.

Audrey said...

It's so nice to see you're making lots of new friends in Pegasus....just be a little careful when Ewan invites you over for dinner.

Stace said...

Does Ewan want Brown or Cameron?
If neither, perhaps he could consider running himself...

Danielle the Paranoid Android said...

For the win.

dm_lunsford said...

Oh great, now I'm feeling the compulsion to go make cheese toast and listen to sax music. (Which may be a problem as I don't think I actually own any sax music.)

But thanks, because your latest post made me laugh. ; )

Pega said...

Still in the blue shirt I see, but now you have that cool tak vest to go with it. I guess that's better than nothing. ;)

Cheese toast huh? Now I know what to serve the next time a Wraith drops by for dinner. It's lovely that you keep us so well informed on the latest news from Pegasus, whatever would we do without you?

Fran said...

Do I see a Wraith Worshiper in the midst. Oh great now I have a hankerin for a grilled cheese sandwich. Thanks a lot. Ever tried putting Kraft Miracle Whip inside between the two piece of bread before frying it up. YUMMY.

Peace and Hugs

Fran

Tori said...

Does Mr. Momoa REALLY drive a pink Cadillac? Takes a man to drive a pink car.

Wraith are cool, they just need to find a more renewable food resource. How about Daniel Jackson?

J said...

You just made my crappy, rainy Michigan day a little brighter.

<3

Zannah said...

I may never stop laughing. Wraith sympathizer!

shelsfc said...

....I really want to see that wraith play a saxophone!!!

Thanks for putting up those vids! Yay for Pegasus 2! Any chance of seeing you at P3?

Kanku said...

Dude, Wraith are sweet ^^
Creepy at times, and kinda deadly, but hey that doesn't mean anything (unless that is, you end up as lunch...that would suck)
As a reed-instrument player, I know he has to have SKILL to play a sax with those teeth and hands. 10 points ^^
-Kanku

P.S. My friend 'll kill me if I don't say this so - she wants to hug a Wraith and needs a 'I love Wraith' shirt

Tauri Sith said...

Wish I could be a Wraith. No more Evil! math classes to go to!!

Library-Gryffon said...

Tori: The pink Caddy can be seen here: http://josephmallozzi.blogspot.com/2007/05/may-1-2007.html.

It's the ninth and tenth pics down.

I don't normally care for Caddys, but I'd take this one.

Becky S said...

Well, many years ago, Kermit the Frog did say it wasn't easy being green...maybe we can adapt the song for the Wraith. I'm just not sure what color you would call them.

Nice vids, David! Thanks! And the Jake 2.0 one makes me think that if someone is smart enough to bring back "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." (which would be great!) you should be hired to be Illya Kuryakin. I think that would be great fun seeing you in that roll.

PaulĂ­na said...

I always thought Wraiths are more heavy metal guys, but now it is obvious - they are blues. Now, all of us can understand their poor, tortured souls, now finaly universe can be better and happier place to live or be sucked out of life. Just continue with spreading love, Dr.Z, cause: "I have a dream..."

allison said...

Wonder if David's going to be in 'Be All My Sins Remember'd' *excited*. Between you, Joe and Hewlett, waiting for S4 is almost unbearable. Almost. ;D
Absolutely fantastic photo! Whoever took that just got a point on the Universal Score Board. Now all we're waiting for it that Czech rap >D

Rosehawk said...

LOL - this is fantastic to come home after a long day, to read and smile about - Thanks!

The video's are great! Zelenka's security clearance is one of my favorite scenes!

Cheese toast, I had to read that a few times. It's toasted cheese here!

Who would have known that the Wraith need hugs too - Thanks so much for sharing!!!

Liz said...

Pink Cadillac? Did he used to work for Mary Kay?

Francy said...

Thank you for the great insight on Wraiths' lives... only knowledge of their ways can end Wraithism. I look forward to knowing even more about them, and of their feelings towards their ancestors, the Eratus bugs...

Chez said...

Well even more news about those wraith, next you know we;ll ALL be sititng down to dinner with them...

Scarym said...

It is nice that you want to befriend a wraith, but do you have to stand so close? ; ) Your fans worry about you, you know. : )


Love the clip on your blog.

So where is this undisclosed US location you might be visiting ?????

Justi said...

(novelties) music for my ears:-)

Ben said...

Does Jason honestly drive that car?

Carolyn said...

se toast...is that grilled cheese? Because really the first thought that went through my head was a wraith at a toaster oven with cheese dripping all over the insides and the wraith cursing up a storm. Funny mental image, that.

French toast is so much better, though.

Mary said...

Next thing you know, Zelenka's on his way to the Wraith side.

Hee.

Edward4th said...

Wraith-chic,a whole new fashion statement by Kate Moss

Lisa said...

I loved this post. It is great to get an insight into the Wraith state of mind. Stace, I think it is a great idea for Ewan to run for PM - Brown is my MP but if he was up against Ewan, I know who I would vote for ;p)

Someday Scientist said...

baha, oh, Momoa and his pink cadillac. ^_^ he must be secure in his masculinity, lol.

great pictures! ewan-the-wraith-who's-real-name-is-actually-scott is a very friendly-looking wraith. if he playes sax, has he ever considered releasing an album? Wraith Jazz could be the next hip thang. :P

Nina said...

Totally OT:

I just now discovered the video with Karel Gott's "Biene Maja"-Song! OMG! :rofl: Great! He was my Great-Grandmothers darling... *g*

Jenny said...

David. I found something you might find amusing on YouTube.
Mister Jason Momoa drunkenly singing at a bar with some friends. How the hell it got on YouTube, I don't know.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uvxMZIb9LsA

But yeah, thought you or maybe perhaps Jason might want to know this exists. LOL.

iB said...

Davide,
just one question. Do you know anything about Prague yet??... Ivana

watcher652 said...

Joe Mallozzi has a nice photo of you on his May 19th blog entry. It would be fun to see Radek in that hat! You'd think costuming could come up with some other blue shirt styles.

allison said...

-great pic on JM's blog-
Nice hat *jealous*! Are those shirts soft? I've always wondered.

Ebbtide said...

I love your wraith comments. ;) You have made me see the life-suckers in a "new light". lol. Great blog! I'm looking forward to reading more of your posts...you are very entertaining and informative. Wonderful! BTW, I am a huge fan. ;)
