Q Q&A






Nice guy that De Lancie. We sat on stage for almost an hour talking all sorts of stuff, TV, theatre, and sailboats. And, of course, stroopwaffels. Lots and lots of stroopwaffels.
.
Thanks Utopia for a great weekend - Angela, Nicoline, Martin and all the rest of you who made Scheveningen such a blast. The weather even cooperated! And look my OWN photos to prove it.
.
Spent yesterday riding around Amsterdam on the bike and this morning in the Van Gogh Museum. Lovely. The Early Japanese prints were awesome - the whole second floor is dedicated to them, and they are a thing of beauty. You can see the early influences they had on Van Gogh.

I'll Be Amsterdammed




Why take a camera with you on vacation when you can use other peoples' snaps off the internet...
.
Holland! I'm not there yet, but will be this weekend at the SciFi Fest to end all scifi fests (at least as far as cities closest to being underwater goes) Utopia Convention. What am I going to talk about with Q! Ask him about that whole time lord thing I guess.
.
So far nothing is certain about any US cons, I'm sad to report. I was almost going to be going to Untied Con in Massachusetts again, but that didn't turn out, so I hope to soon have news for all you wonderful US based folks whom I've yet to visit. It will happen. One day.
.
Ding ding! casting news! I've been cast in a feature called Helen, as John, the, um, husband of um,... the script is set to arrive any day now. Ashley Judd's starring in it, and now, so is David Nykl, so it's time to get in line at the cineplex. I hear there's Oscar buzz for David Nykl in this one already...

Happy Birthday (and Merry Christmas)






Okay NOW it's over. Season IV wrap. Time to say good bye, and Merry Christmas too. I got sung Happy Birthday by the cast and crew 4 months early. Thanks all.
.
I'll keep posting, there's much going on.

The sorta Last Supper





Ratings. Ratings. Ratings. Everyone's talking about ratings. I find it really curious that the fate of a show is supposedly determined by a random sampling of household's on a given night. It doesn't take a rocket scientist (and believe me - I KNOW) that the metrics used to determine a TV show's fate are haphazard at best. I mean really. Take a look around. There are bajillions of Stargate fans out there. Leave our show alone.
.
So last day on set today - sort of. I was in and prepared to say my goodbyes - like the last day of class - when I found out I will be coming in again tomorrow because we didn't get the shot. Hey no problem. More chocolate cake (That's Anthea's famous Mountain Cake in one of the pics - they're phenomenal. (You thought Joe Malozzi was the only one who takes pictures of food...)
.
Speaking of Joe, I went up to say hello and see ya next year, and thanks for all the fish today. I brought him two goldfish and a one gallon tank. Said they were named Zelenka and McKay, and asked him if he could get them to talk to each other more. I hope he feeds them.
.
It was a good year. 10 episodes for the good Doctor. That's right down the middle. So thanks Joe, and the whole Writing and Producing team. The job you do is monumental and not always easy. Good job.
.
Oh and I finally saw some episodes! Watched Adrift, Lifeline and Doppelganger while waiting on set today. Firecrackers all.
