Apparently, UFOs have been sighted in Merseyside. Nice to hear the X-Files theme tune used for that!
I met loads of people at the LA Film Festival last night. It was remarkable how many people there came up to me to say, ‘Hey! You’re the one who got the X-Files script on YouTube!’ I had a tiny taster of what it must be like to be a WebCleb. :) A few people [...]
Yes, he’s now on Facebook. I’m sure it’ll just end up being me updating it all the time for him, but if you want to stay in touch w what he’s up to, then friend him!
Brian wrote an excellent article for the Mail on Sunday magazine. It contains what, I think, is my favourite thing he’s ever written: “The particles of your body have been around for the entire life of the Universe. They are spending the blink of an eye in the pattern known as You.”
Anyone who does online marketing work for a media behemoth knows that ‘the online copyright issue’ is an endless source of frustration. I’m working with Fox on X-Files: I Want To Believe doing online marketing and promotion. As a geek film fan, working on films that you love is just the best thing in the [...]
In the next few weeks there is an X-Files DVD coming out. Up until today, I thought it was going to be called X-Files: Revelations (and in the US it still is), but in the UK, at least, it seems to be called X-Files: Essentials. Ah, who cares about what it’s called, it’s what’s on [...]

I can’t break my NDA at all, but I can link to a webpage. Can’t I?
I’ve been pinged for a ‘green meme’ in a blog post entitled ‘The Greenscam Part II’. I’m supposed to “write about the ways in which [I'm] consciously “green”, and also the things [I] know [I] should do in a more ecologically friendly way but don’t.” First, what I find interesting is how being green has [...]
Here’s the first behind the scenes clip from Brian’s new Horizon on Time. He’s still afraid of creepy-crawlies.
We arrived back from New York late last night. This morning I got up early-ish and started my regular tour through all my places online. On YouTube, I’d noticed that someone had put up a video response to the ‘Sunshine’ trailer in my account. At first it looked like a fan video – the song [...]
If you’ve not seen this hilarious response to my X-Files script unboxing video, you must, you must, you must!
NOTE TO X-PHILES: That was not me in the XFN chatroom last night. I don’t know what was said (I arrived an hour late!), but it was just Maru messing around. So, don’t think you’ve got some ‘inside scoop’… Remember, trust no one. ;) Frank Spotnitz, producer of X-Files: I Want To Believe, answers some [...]
One thing I’ve been finding very interesting since I started doing stuff for the X-Files is the almost obsessive need for some of the fans to not believe anything, yet neither do those ‘unbelievers’ attempt to seek out the ‘truth’. They think they’re being ‘a Scully’, when, in fact, they are merely being a ‘reverse [...]
Wow. You Look Nice Today is kind of the funniest thing I’ve heard in a very long while. Subscribed.
I just had an email from Phil Plait with a link to a very funny reaction to the season finale of Torchwood. Oh! How I laughed. Obviously, if you don’t know what happened and don’t want to know what happened, don’t watch. Yes, yes, I’ve seen the other ones using the same clip.
