I've just fallen head first into *another* TV fandom. The sad part is it's for a TV Show that's not even on TV. It doesn't even exist!

Yet.

Welcome to "The Shadow Unit" - the greatest television show that never existed.

[Lifted right from 'The Shadow Unit' wiki]
Shadow Unit is an action-adventure police procedural with fantasy elements. The series documents the work of the Anomalous Crimes Task Force, part of the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit.

Launched in 2008, Shadow Unit's first season featured a teaser (Beginning) followed by eight episodes including a multipart season finale. Season 2 also contained eight episodes; both seasons have multiple DVD extras associated with them.

Shadow Unit is currently in Season 3; a fourth season is planned.

It's all they're faults! List of Shadow Unit's Powers That Be.

Go here and see what Emma Bull says about the Shadow Unit's origin.

I am/have been a Trekkie, a Browncoat, a Bab-Fiver, a Gater, an Atlantian, oh hell, a whole bunch of 'titles'. but now you can add being a 'Delta' to that.

Sheesh! Just when I thought it was safe to stick my head out of the water. Or, in my case, my Kindle.

Did I get your attention? Good.

This is information on the purposed web project that my ship's XO - Scott Nakada - is currently involved in [he's the prop master]. They are hoping to get funding from the Pepsi "Good Idea" project. Here's what he writes about it.

------------------------------------------

The top 100 voted submissions get posted to the next month, the top 2 places get funding for their project.

They do have a facebook page and have the support of William Shatner, Walter Koenig, Mike Okuda, and many, many more stars, and celebrities. They want to do a series of 22-24 webisodes (full hour long) a year. It’s a film school set up that currently is planned to not cost the students a dime, the professionals will be passing along what they know, to the students, and the students will be learning valuable skills and getting real world experience. But for this to happen like us with our film project (they also have volunteered to help us if we ever get rolling) they need funding.

So, if you'd like to see more Trek, drop by, register [it's free] and give them a vote.


Note: Scott was involved in "Star Trek: Of Gods and Men" [props master, art dept, extra, etc] and makes props for Roddenberry.com, among others. Another ship member, Peter Christian, was also involved in the project [producer, art director, extra, etc]. I love my ship. We are so multi-faceted and geeky.

"Lost". No matter how many tiems I tried, I just don't connect. I've never had the chance to see any of the early episodes of "Supernatural", but the couple of later season one's I've seen, I don't click with.

Yep, it's a hypospray and yep, it's a prop. But it's special for two reasons.

#1: it's not a 'commercial' prop. By that I mean it isn't currently a mass produced item. I didn't buy it from a toy company or prop company like Roddenberry.com.

#2: It was a gift 'of the heart' from a shipmate, Scott Nakada, who makes custom props for sale [and some for roddemberry.com to resell] from his store . http://www.xscapesprops.com/ Scott knew I've always wanted one and it was going to be a project we were going to work on together [he was teaching me how to design, mold, cast and paint props], but a relocation move came up suddenly and I thought we'd never get to it. At the last ship's meeting I was able to attend, he gave this to me.

I finially found the camera and snapped a quick picture. Believe me, the picture doesn't do it justice.

I always find it a bit creepy when I run across an actor who I first 'met' playing a fairly sweet and well mannered character playing someone who puts up the hackles on my neck. This was certainly one time.

Alan Tudyk The lovable pilot Wash from 'Serenity' and 'Firefly' is on 'CSI' right now as a pedophile arsonist.

'CSI' - 'Burn Out'

Mild, well mannered and all *too* believable.

[shudder!}

What if...

Something I ran across in one of the blogs I check regularly. What would it sound like if
Neil Gaiman wrote for Dr. Who? This is an extrapolation of The Tenth Doctor and the classic dialoge from "Hamlet":



"To be, or not to be, that is the question. Weeelll.... More of 'A' question really. Not 'THE' question. Because, well, I mean, there are billions and billions of questions out there, and well, when I say billions, I mean, when you add in the answers, not just the questions, weeelll, you're looking at numbers that are positively astronomical and... for that matter the other question is what you lot are doing on this planet in the first place, and er... did anyone try just pushing this little red button?"


Not only is that all, that should be quite enough. :>

Well, another NorWesCon's come and gone. #31 has been put to bed, at least for me. I'm sure the concom is still digging out from the four day mini-marathon of sleep deprivation, set-up, take down and hearing things like 'Okay, has anyone seen where I put that last bundle of cable ties? Some Neanderthal want's me to peace bond his club.'

That sort of thing.

Just another day at the con. And other then a couple of people who seem to go out of their way to harsh my personal space, things were good. I want to thanks [livejournal.com profile] crazedcamel, [livejournal.com profile] amycat1959 and a couple of others for the offer of a quick, shallow pit and a few bags of quick lime. And to Rocelyn for just being and understanding.

For those who don't know, I have this wonderful work-trade agreement with [livejournal.com profile] amycat1959 who owns Book Universe - a wonderful traveling book store that makes the rounds of various SF&F, gamer, actor and other cons. The deal is she pays my membership and I schlep books: unload, unpack, sort, helper, repack, reload, etc. I are a minion. :} It's tiring, but in a good way and it's fun. The last con was NorWesCon31 and she did good, I had fun and all is well.

This year some of the concom set up and slammed together a last minute donation project to help raise matching funds for Alzheimer research. In Dec of 2007 Terry Pratchett [a UK writer best known for his 'Discworld' books for those who don't know] announced that he was suffering from early-onset Alzheimer. Early this year he donated $1,000,000 US for clinical research into the disease. Fans have taken up the call and started an Internet fund raiser called Match It for Pratchett. NorWesCom was hoping to raise $2,000 over the four day con. But fans dug deep and did even better - $3,403.70! NorWesCon's Livejournal

And [livejournal.com profile] amycat1959, bless her, donated *all* proceeds from the sales of all the Pratchett books that she sold this last weekend.

Isn't fandom great? :}
