The anthology “Pieces of Nothing” is now available for pre-order on Amazon (and should also be available on Kobo, like, anytime….), and will be available for 2.99 Saturday, the 31st of January. I know there are quite a number of you all that like to read, so if anyone would like to write a short review of the book, please let me know!
If you are not a reader, pass the word on to any of your friends who might be, and leave your thoughts on the stories here.
The next full book is in progress, and occasional sketches (both prose and artwork) will continue to be posted.
Thank you for looking! Smith would be moderately pleased. :-p
Could it really and truly happen? Oh gosh I hope so, because if they really do get the original team of Chris Carter, Gillian Anderson, and David Duchovney back together, it could be pretty darn awesome. It doesn’t seem to be set in stone yet – as far as I know – and even if it does happen, there is always the chance that it would just suck alien eggs. But I will be there watching, for sure! Stay tuned for news on it!
I’ve been going through all ten seasons of the X-Files, so seeing this right as I come to the end of season seven is downright spooky. Watching the evolution of the show, as well as the blindingly fast development of technology, has been fascinating. Season six is not one of my favorites, for some reason, but season seven is pretty darn great.

Doesn’t it seem like all the interesting shows and series take FOREVER between season? Good grief. But it is probably worth it… Firstly, it could be assumed that the people involved with the show take their time to produce something worthwhile to watch even if we, the viewers, don’t always agree with the direction said shows take (cough choke sleepy hollow sputter). I, for one, still admire when a show at least takes a direction. Floating in the wind like pee from a giraffe is not much fun to follow along with.
Fringe comes to mind as a series that (seemed) to have a plan, wobbled a little at one point, but got it together again and really made something memorable.
All right, back to the point of this post: Helix. This is a show that really surprised me when it started, and in a good way. Like Orphan Black, it took a while to get into it’s rhythym, but once it did there was no looking back. And again like Orphan Black, season 2 seems to be a bit different but the same as season 1. I’ll save my opinions about the upcoming season of Orphan Black for another post (bookmark April on your calendar for that show!). The Helix Podcast has an interview with Neil Napier which is quite interesting to listen to, and he mentions that many of the Helix cast will be on Twitter this Friday evening (January 16) during the season premier episode. I don’t usually do the tweet thing while I watch a show, I find it tricky to follow tweets and a plot at the same time, but this time I might try.
Below are a couple of Youtube teasers for season 2 if you wish to check them out. To my knowledge there are no spoilers in these. To my knowledge.
2014 has come and gone, and 2015 is well underway already. I have mixed feelings about it this year but… that’s a long story. :-p
The Who Crew recorded the final podcast of the year and as of today, it is available for download. (yours truly was a teensy-weensy bit hung over, so excuse the gravelly voice and my lack of train of thought. Oh wait, I never have a train of thought…) Do listen all the way through to the end of the podcast as there is a bit of news on our own “regeneration”….
Overall, I really enjoyed this special, though I’m glad to have watched it twice. It was definitely better the second time around. May I just say: Best Santa Ever. 😀
As usual (for the last time) the feed is not available through iTunes (but will be), so please click here to go directly to download the episode! As always, we’d love to get feedback from you. On the Doctor Who Stuff page, there are Twitter links to all of us, if you wish to follow any of us or just to Tweet!
From the bottom of my French Canadian Scandinavian heart, I wish you all the happiest and healthiest of New Year’s!

Gallifrey Stands “Last Christmas” Podcast
Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad, God Jul, Happy Solstice…. and any others I have missed – enjoy the season! Thank you to all the followers who have been reading my musings and a few new ones who are on board for my new book (January 31, 2015 release). Whatever you celebrate, please do it safely! You wouldn’t want to miss the Doctor Who Christmas Special, would you?
Stay tuned on that topic, as Gallifrey Stands – a Doctor Who Podcast (run by the inimitable Terry Tardis) will be presenting a podcast a few days afterward, and will be accompanied by the usual hoodlums, myself probably included. Links will be available everywhere.
As for John and Smith (“Time for Nothing”), last I heard Smith was sipping (through a straw, of course) a very nicely chilled white Chardonnay, as John was desperately trying not to skewer anyone while night skating on Jupiter’s Ganymede. Those new lights they just installed around the rink a mighty bright for a unicorn…
