Random Stuff (mostly fandom related)

Today I took in the flower show at one of our local nurseries.  It was very nice; saw some lovely flowers (but sadly didn't bring my camera), fell in love with a nice new fragrance (Spider Lily), and picked up a few plants.  It wasn't as extravagant an affair as it was last year, but still very nice.  Unfortunately I had to leave after a while because my PMS started rearing its ugly head and I started feeling a bit weepy and depressed.  That's long gone now thankfully.

Yesterday I picked up the new issue of Stargate (SG-1 and Atlantis) magazine, the one with MS, AT, and BB on the cover (with the interviews inside on the 2 movies).  A few spoilery things I'll hide behind a cut...

Very interesting interview with Tim Guinee who plays Tomin.  He apparently didn't even know what Stargate was all about when he first got involved in it, because he lives in an old farmhouse in the mountains of Upstate NY (hmmm.... which ones I wonder... the Catskills or Adirondacks?  No I'm not gonna try stalking him so don't start worrying!! lol).  He was amazed at the number of people who were familiar with the show.  He also said how much he loved working with the cast, especially CB and even CJ.  He also gave some info on AoT - that they tie up some loose ends to sort of deal with Vala and Tomin's relationship.

AT talked about not only AoT but also Continuum.  She said that Sam and Teal'c really don't do anything in AoT, but she said that Sam, Daniel and Cam are very involved in Continuum. She talked a bit about what it was like filming those scenes in the Arctic as well.

CJ had a few jokey things to say in his interview. He mentioned that we would see a different Teal'c in Continuum.  He was asked if it would be like what happens to Daniel and he replied something like "no, not of the missing limb persuasion"... lol

CB's interview was pretty good too.  When talking about Unending she said that she and MS felt they had to have Daniel say all those things to Vala, to wonder why he would ever get involved with her before starting anything with her.  She joked (at least it sorta seems that way to me) that he's not the least bit interested in her - that she talks too much and something about being quite large only during the last season because she's nursing her baby. 

As for MS' interview... well some of what he said was pretty interesting.  He made this funny comment that he would never really say goodbye to Daniel, that he'd be in an asylum rocking back and forth and saying  "But Jack - this is the way I feel about it. What do you think?" lol.  I pretty much skipped over his comments about the D/V thing because I don't really have much interest in it; sorry but that's the way I feel.  One thing that did stick out for me - and I may be making a big deal of this - is that lately (like in the past couple years or so) he keeps referring to the Sam character as "Carter" instead of Sam.  Has he always referred to her that way? Because I do remember past interviews where he'd said "Sam" instead.  To me it seems like something disrespectful, that it shows his contempt for the character or something.  I know he refers to Cam as "Mitchell," but I expect that because Daniel himself calls the character "Mitchell" instead of "Cam." But he's always called Sam, "Sam," not "Carter" (except for one or two S1 eps, but that was early on).  So does anyone think he's doing it out of contempt or disdain for the Sam character and/or AT?  I obsess over things way too much, I know.... sorry :(

Didn't really read the Beau Bridges interview because I'm not really a fan of Landry. I don't hate him but I think he could have been written better.  Did like the Julian Sands interview. I love him as the Doci but then again I'm biased because I do like the actor.  I remember him from Stephen King's "Rose Red." *grin*

Anyway there were some nice pics in the magazine... the Daniel/MS ones were nice, as well as the cast pics (like the one of MS, AT, BB and CJ with the arms around each other and smiling), and for my own personal interest 1 or 2 pics of Daniel and Sam. :)

Oh, and another up side to that magazine... there was a nice ad in it for the Supernatural magazine. *grin*

And speaking of that, I will have some new artwork to share soon. I've made a LOT of new icons, headers and whatnot since my last artwork post, so look for those soon. 

I'll also have a new LJ header soon.  I'm working on something that will pretty much showcase most (or hopefully all) of my different fandoms, all in one place.  I have one version that I quite like but I'll be working on a few more.  I'll probably unveil it in a few weeks, the closer we get to Spring. 

And somewhat related... I now hear that the SAG (Screen Actors Guild) may go on strike? *puts head in hands* Jeepers, we just got through one strike and now we'll have to contend with another? I was watching TV yesterday and there was a little news blurb about this, saying it could affect production in the summer on new TV seasons.  I'm not taking any side in this; not the actors' side or the studios' side.  I just really hope they can come to some kind of agreement.  Don't they see what this past strike has done?  You'd think they'd want to avoid another one.  I really hope this can be avoided.

And finally... I think my muse is returning.  She forced me to answer this prompt on the sg1_five_things comm, the "Five times Sam and Daniel went out together (five things they did as friends or on a 'date')" prompt.  They're supposed to be unveiled tomorrow so when that happens I'll post a link here to it.  Thanks to maevebran for giving the heads up over at the S/D thread at GW. :) 

I've also got a little idea for a Supernatural fic.  It's not much, just a tiny little plot bunny and I'm not too sure if it could work.  I'll do some more brainstorming though and see if it can go anywhere.

Guess that's about it... the PMS is also making me really tired so I'll probably call it an early night.
