The Sci-Fi Airshow

If I was eleven years old (and most days I am) the slimmest thought of this being even close to a real thing would have made my Irwin Allen-loving head explode. The joy here is the exquisite “reality” the site employs. These ships are real! Full-size and built to fly. If only. Man. If only.






Speaking of flying cars...

Jalopnik links to Popular Science’s best flying car covers. Ah, if only.

Bob and Saul explain it all for you

500x_warehouse-13-105-9
Warehouse 13 writer Bob Goodman has written a fantastic essay on the discovery process he discovered working on a hit TV show. It’s about writing and working and fun and imagination and why this job is great. So of course the Writers’ Guild magazine Written By rejected it for publication. io9’s gain. See you at the office, Bob.

And, to get even more Warehousey, check out Saul Rubinek’s (
our Artie) video interview.

Another Sci Fi and More Channel

Picture 1
Remember when TV used to promise to take you places you’d never been and show you wondrous things? The AMC Network is beginning to convince me that it remembers that promise. MAD MEN is part of that. Writer/director Michael Nankin is working on a series set in WWII about downed B-17 fliers trapped behind enemy lines. And the novel Carter Beats the Devil about the trials and adventures of an early 20th Century magician is slated for production. As the networks keep regurgitating the same old same old it’s heartening and inspiring to see AMC (and A&E) reaching up to embrace ambitious stories that can elevate and entertain.

Hey, I Wrote a Movie!

Eighteen months ago my wife was pregnant with twins. I wasn’t working. Well, not “working” working but there was a lot of baby-prep going on. Dan Myrick, a good friend, approached me with an idea for a movie. We kicked it around some and, since I had a little time before the baby shoes dropped, I wrote it. He produced it. Ben Rock directed it. Julia Fair did a terrific production rewrite when the twins arrived and I was pulled into two wonderful other directions. Here’s the trailer for ALIEN RAIDERS.
