  1. The Millennium Group could have gone into hiding, after all the time was near. Holed up in a bunker somewhere... There was no trace of the Group, it was said in that X-Files episode, it does seem that the Group disintegrated with all the infighting. To my mind it's still open, it wasn't all that definitive what they said in the episode. The Group could come back, although in a very different form, yes. Regarding the resolution of the series, it felt like he was on the run. He had won the battle but not the war, that's how I see it. It's a bit different when we see that X-Files episode, it looks like he hasn't been touched by the Millennium Group. Granted, it hasn't been that much of a time since the show ended, a few months. So, the Group could have been refocusing, deciding to let Frank go for the time being. After all, they had the " Apocalypse" to worry about. And it's very open about Watts, how it was shot. Maybe he's meant to be dead, but couldn't get Terry O'Quinn for that shot, a scheduling snafu maybe. I think Watts is smarter than getting shot in his own office, he knew he had been shut out, he knew they were coming. He was protecting Frank, so he would presumably protecting himself if it ever came to that.
  2. I sent him a message on facebook complementing him. Some cuts and visuals that goes with the music are inspired. He told me and I quote him: "I started the video in the middle of season 2 and had actually finished it and then about 6months or so after the end of the series I updated it with season 3 footage. I then made three different version of the video, not too different from each other, but this one has the book ending with the selfosophy thing and another had nin footage inter-cut." It must have taken ages to do this, working with VHS tapes recorded from when it aired on FOX and I'm not sure what he used, were computers that good back then for video editing?
  3. Well, I did a quick test on the background, will leave it like this for a while. I have to experiment with it. And I know not everybody has their monitor settings at 1600x1200.
  4. Dead Letters is up as well...I'm on a roll, apparently. Maybe this will be it for today, but in the posts I do revisit them, write what I intended to do and that sort of stuff, or what I did or what I learned from the episode. So, it's not all copy and paste, even though I've done that for a part of the text. EDIT: the first five videos I've made are up there, more will follow tonight and in the next couple of days.
  5. the second video is up at: cheersfromiceland.blogspot.com

      Forum updated accordingly old chum. Chin, chin.

  6. Plus, there were many that weren't up on YouTube, only on BTFB. Yes, I'm amazed myself how many I've made. Never thought I would make so many, to be honest. It was a shot in the dark to try to do a video for every episode. I'm almost half way there, it seems. Some episodes will be hard though, when I will start doing the videos again.
  7. I think Mark is referring to something he has never shared with us, as I thought the Luminary week video he made was stunning (even though it didn't turn out exactly as he wanted, but that's what happen most of the time when you attack any project). *humble* *humble* :D I hope I can kick me in the ass so people will enjoy the downloads more frequently of these oldies videos. I should strive to have something on the blog at least once a week, otherwise people could say I'm lazy or Wanker of the 1st Degree at worst. ;) I never put Pepsi Max aside, it must be by my side if I'm to function and get ideas for the videos.
  8. You just have to start here: https://bringbackfrankblack.blogspot.com/2009/07/avatar-vision-proudly-presents-pilot-is.html And work your way up through the archives from 07/12-07/09 to the present (it's on the right side, open up the year 2009 and look for posts that usually start with avatar vision, the posts weren't all tagged the same so no tag contains them all). But I plan on putting them on my blog which is in my signature below. But that's a slow process...but there will be download links for those when they go up there (as long as people are downloading within a certain time limit or the links will become a dud). I hope you enjoy the videos, they were a lot of fun to make and challenging. If you want to download that first one, check my blog: https://cheersfromiceland.blogspot.com/2010/06/pilot-is-power.html I hope this helps. Have fun.
  9. I do like Fringe although season 2 had no surprises for me. It's all very obvious, what this season was heading. But all the same I like the show. Well, there were a couple of duds, the typical computer virus-killer in the first season and the aforementioned musical-noir season two episode. But I LOVED the 80s Fringe opening! I love the musical rendition of the sparse theme song into something I truly love, quirky electronic sounds. It was so cool and unexpected. Fringe is simple and it also isn't, I really liked the episode with Peter Weller (who was in Robocop and Naked Lunch), plus it sported a Gary Numan song! :D No TV show should replace another, and I'm not defending X-Files as I didn't watch it a lot (and I had the season 1 set a few years back and was put-off with it so much I had no desire to check out season 2, I guess I want the episode to move a bit faster...maybe that was it). I can say that Fringe is the X-Files for a new generation who don't know what X-Files was....much like the Star Wars prequels in a sense (although, I'm not comparing the quality of Fringe to my general distaste of the Star Wars prequels).
  10. I got a reply from the man behind the convention DVDs, it wasn't high in detail, so I sent another reply. But he's said that the DVD would feature all the Q&A panels (which means Lance and Christine Q&As will be there) but I don't know if they are uncut or not. He also said he's looking into keeping the Q&A (but not exclusive, I believe) separate from the DVD in downloadable form. He did also say that he could make a custom DVD for me, if I understood him correctly. I told him that there would be other people interested in hearing/seeing the Lance and Christine Q&As. So, who here is willing to get a DVD with only those Q&A uncut...and if they are the same price as previous convention DVDs, it could be around 25-35 US dollars (but I asked him if the price would be lower for this custom DVD). I'll keep you posted.
  11. I've sent an e-mail to the contact address over at that site, see if I can get any info if there will be much of the Q&A. I'm only interested in the Christine Q&A and Lance's Q&A, I hope there won't be too much footage of people waiting in lines and speaking to the people at the convention. I bet it's hard to cater for everybody, some want to experience the feeling of being there again and some just want the great Q&A's in their entirety. And if I were editing the Lance Q&A, I wouldn't cut one bit out, it was all gold if you ask me.
  12. I sent an e-mail and asked about the DVD, and it's in production. It should go up on sale soon, here's the site. https://www.caseyccorpier.com/order.html I have no idea how much of the Q&A will be on there, it will probably be a condensed affair, if it's only 1 DVD, there's only so much you can put on a DVD.
  13. I fixed the pictures, re-sized them to the same size I used in my Pilot blog. They don't look as bad as I thought when I was resizing them in Photoshop. But that re-sizer program is handy, I'll give you that.
  14. Although I haven't seen an episode of The Lone Gunmen, I have to say that was an enjoyable interview. I'm very sad to hear that the Lone Gunmen died in the last season of the X-Files, I did not know that. I only saw bits of the 8th season, I guess, when Robert Patrick came into the picture. I've always been meaning to pick up this series and Harsh Realm on DVD...I will some day watch it, I know. I will also pick up the video game someday when the price has lowered, game prices are ridiculous here in Iceland. And that Minkow film sure has a good cast, well, I'm intrigued. Thanks, Mark and Stephen.
  15. L&O: LA? Oh...brother... Are the detectives surfer dudes or something? I hate these spin-off shows. I do give props to CSI since each show is so visually and the performance is different. I don't care for L&O: CI because what turned me off was how Vincent's character was way too smart for my taste. I do love L&O: SVU since it's dark and disturbing but I haven't seen it much since I don't have access to the channel that used to show it here. I haven't seen the NCIS spin-off show but where's the point in watching that? LL Cool J and Chris O'Donnell? How about a spin-off of LOST, called FOUND...and focuses on the survivors of Ajira Six? No? Oh well... :D Would love to have Frank Lapidus have a show of his own...what can I say, I have a soft spot for Jeff Fahey for some reason...even though I haven't that many movies with him.
  16. Mark, you demanded it, here it is: https://www.millenniu...e-weekend-2010/ There are lots of pictures and I didn't want to downsize them too much, even though TIWWA does downsize them as well. So, wait a little until they load, and when TIWWA shrinks them. And then, you're good to go!
  17. Judging by the forums, it sounds like just overall stuff, with chats of convention goers, I think. I would just love to have 1 DVD with the Lance Q&A, I would pay for that....it was that good... Mark, well...I think I'll do this after the weekend...the gist of the Texas Frightmare Weekend...I'm lazy alright.

    Meg and me

    Meg loved the Dead Letters/Ventured t-shirt that Barry designed. She was so nice, she was even hugging people and she was so happy for me that I got my John Carpenter autograph (I was a little worried for a moment).

    Meg Foster (They Live and Stepfather 2) was wonderful and those eyes are still as mysterious as ever before.

    One of my biggest influence and inspiration regarding my music, the horror master, John Carpenter. If you don't know who he is, you're beyond helping.

    John Amplas who has been in many of Romero's film, but notably in the title role of Martin. He was super nice and fun to talk to.

    Doug Bradley (Pinhead from the Hellraiser films) wasn't the biggest fan of Iceland when he was stuck in Europe because of the volcano.

    Me and George

    From the album: Texas Frightmare Weekend 2010

    After about 2 hours of wait, I have this to ease the pain. George A. Romero, if you don't know who he is, lets just say you're a zombie.
