DeathSpider Larva (3/8)



  1. It happened when I was talking on the phone with Thomas about setting up for a convention and he said he was about to shoot a really cool new Sci-Fi series and told me to read the books. I hate reading, so I did the audio books. As much as I love the show, I appreciate the people associated with the show I have connected with far more.

    RAW Studios is not doing a booth for SDCC 2018. Thomas did let me know that he would come to the show, if The Predator brought him in as a guest and we'd try and connect then. I doubt he'll come for the entire show, but hopefully we'll have some time to hang out. Bradstreet will be at his art dealer's booth, Splash page Comic Art for the show. We turned over our booth space this year to our good friends, StormKing Productions, John Carpenter's production company, run by his incomparable wife, Sandy. I am very fortunate as part of the deal to help them set up and break down the booth as well as watch it as needed, so I'll be there too. I'll let you guys know if anything fun happens =) Mike
  3. I've been holding out, in part due to an NDA, but I had the extreme pleasure of going to visit the set of the Expanse as a VIP during season 3. I was very fortunate to be there for the first day of shooting with Thomas and saw how incredible he is as a performer at work for the first time. I just need to get myself in front of my computer at home to sit down and write the story of what all happened and what it was like, with a couple pictures included. I just rarely ever use my computer since I quite playing video games a few years ago... More to follow, Mike

    I JUST...

    Buon Natale!!! As I am on an unexpected trip to Napoli, Italian for a month through the holidays and my b-day. I'll miss my family and working my as off, bUT it really isn't that bad =) Mike
  5. I can't wait to see the Bobbie Draper character. She was a very challenging character to cast, and I think they NAILED it!!! I spoke with Executive producer Mark Fergus at SDCC 2015 and he promised to do everything thing the could to find a tall, athletic, attractive Polynesian actress, that could fight. Looks like he followed through =) Mike
  6. Rosella, Thanks, I'm happy to share any time!! And I agree it looks like a great role for TJ!!
  7. Yup, I just saw a post on FB from Tom's agent on this =)

    RAW and the Expanse are different entities. RAW is all about what Tom and Tim produce directly. That being said we did have several people come by that were fans of the Expanse, but funny enough they didn't immediately recognize that we had up to 3 cast members in the booth at a time with Thomas, Florence, and Dominique. This is the first time I have ever really taken so many pictures with me in them, so it still feels a little weird. I'll try to edit my post and fill out some details about them. Noeland, John and some others likely may have seen it all already on Facebook anyway =) Mike

    Here are some pictures from RAW SDCC 2016 Mike
  11. Tom is going to shoot something in September. I don't know if this is what it is.
  12. We met with some of the cast and crew throughout the show. Tom overheard one crew member, Holly, state that she and her husband, Terry, have been trying to get to the show for years, so he committed to making that happen. They made it and we had a blast helping them enjoy the show. Friday night we went to the SyFy Magicians party and I had a crazy fun time. I even got to dance a tiny bit with Dominique Tipper. We met briefly last year and I was so impressed with her back then, just a fun and vibrant person. I spent a long time talking to executive producer Mark Fergus and his wife, Julie, and also spoke with show runner Naren Shankar. We even got somewhat philisophocal using the show as a reference, soooo cool I met Florence Faivre and embarrassingly called her Florescent. Crazy fun, does imply that I got hammered. I has no idea that I had done it until Tom and Florence mentioned it on Sunday night. Tom said it 2as funny to see me lit up for the first time in the decade or so. Fortunately the were both very forgiving. She must have been, since she took a "hot" picture with me. There's a "magical" picture of Tom and I too. I unexpectedly ran into Adrian Pasdar from Heroes and Agents of Shield at the party. Another side note is that I got drunk with my 21 year old daughter for the first time. On Saturday I was hanging out with former Raw publicist, Rogue Rubin. We tried really hard to get into the EW party, but failed at the last security check point. One surprise though was running into Norman Reedus and Greg Nicotero, and getting to say hello and shake hands. On Sunday, Tom, Florence, and Dominique spent a lot of time in the booth. We had a lot of fun just hanging out and getting to know each other better. After the show closed we all met up with each other at the same place as the Magicians party. Cas Anvar showed up and brought his parents with him, totally cool. Cas and I have spoken in the past about doing a booth with him and Tom. The biggest surprise came when Shoreh Aghdashloo joined us. I really do my best not to go all fanboy, but I could not help it with her. I loved her character in the books and I was ecstatic when I found out she was cast. Her performance as Chrisjen is amazing. So I had to let her know how I felt and she was exceptionly graceful and receptive about it. She even gave me one of her potty mouth lines from the show. LOVED It!! When we first met she told me she loved my hair that my daughter just braided. She was also really interested in what I did for a living, she guessed I was an artist. She was surprised and intrigued when I told her. Florence had to leave us early for a flight, but she really wanted to stay, since we were having so much fun. We spoke about dying hair, she suggested going with a dark color to bring out my piercing blue eyes. I gushed a bit at that comment. I got to dance a little more with Dominique, she used to be a professional dancer and she can really move. Dominique really felt like she had become a friend already Florence too. Everyone of the cast members came across as sincere and incomparable. I am so looking forward running into them again. Mike
  13. I saw this at the SDCC panel. It was so awesome and the full crowd loved it. It was clear the cast members are extremely passionate about the show and they absolutely love doing it.

    I've been getting better about taking pictures lately, so I'll be sure to take at least some photos in addition to a group shot. I took a group shot last year and I thought John posted it somewhere... maybe... Mike
