questions & answers: Pt 3

stargate writer joseph mallozzi has a blog the he sometimes opens up to guest bloggers. i sometimes submit questions.

these were for lexa doig who played dr. lam in seasons 9 & 10.

Archersangel writes: “1. do you wish more back story would’ve been given for dr. lam? like why she became a doctor? or why she was distanced from her father? was it more than the usual “child of divorce” thing? did the writers tell you anything? or did you have something mind while playing her?

See above…

("see above" is:)
A little of an extended back story… Beau and I discussed his back story before we started filming, and that informed mine a bit. Here’s something you don’t know about Carolyn Lam: she paid her way through her extensive Doogie Howser-esque schooling by table dancing in Lithuania.

2. and now that your husband has his own official site
http://www.michaelshanks-online.com/news/index.shtml
could you ask that he blog there once in a while. or send in a note like richard dean anderson does for his site?”

Sure… but he never listens to me, I’m his wife.

saw indiana jones 4



SPOILER WARNING!!




well first of all that damn kid is his offspring. *rollseyes* if you saw the young indiana jones chronicles (& judging by the ratings you probably didn't) older (90-ish) indy would often set up the story and in one of them he had a grandkid. so he had to have had an offspring at some point.
the whole alien thing was a WTF, IMHO. it was borrowed from an sg-1 episode, couldn't they come up with a better idea after 20 years? *raises an eyebrow at george lucas*
most of the movie had an odd tint to it, especially the beginning. my brother said they must've been going for a comic book look.
blanchett(sp?) was good as the baddie. evil, without being over the top. again IMHO.
i was wondering how they'd top the snakes of the first one, the bugs of the second one & the rats of the third. it was ants. BIG, hungry ants. *twitches* my brother said they might have been bullet ants. which, strangely enough, he was talking about the other day.
there was an interesting brief look at the arc from the first movie in the warehouse. which my brother called "a special guest appearance." there were also nods to the young indy series.
i heard that this movie didn't go over well in peru, where the climax of the movie took place. neither my brother or myself see anything objectionable in regards to the country or the locals. *shrugs*
at the end i thought they were going to do a "passing of the torch" thing to his kid & almost passed out in relief when they didn't. *cheers*
overall, not bad. it's not a waste of money or time.

eye of the beholder

i can't recall if i did this subject, but if i did bear with me.

i don't get some of these guys the call "hot," mostly on TV. most are average-looking at best, odd-looking at worst. i think it's some kind of perception issue. like some kind of beergoogles effect. be honest; if you saw any of these guys in real life, would you think they were hot? if they worked in the cubical next to you or at the grocery store that you got to & the flirted with you, you'd probably complain to your friends about these guys.

quiz: what's your thinking style?




Your Dominant Thinking Style: Modifying



Super logical and rational, you consider every fact available to you.

You don't make rash decisions and are rarely moved by emotion.



You prefer what's known and proven - to the new and untested.

You tend to ground those around you and add stability.
