X-Files @ Forbidden Planet

X-Files: I Want To Believe producers Chris Carter and Frank Spotnitz did a signing at Forbidden Planet in London on the 31st of July. Fans from all over Europe came to meet them. Here’s a little taster of what it was like…

LA Film Festival Video

Here are some interviews I did at the X-Files Sneak Peek at the LA Film Festival.

X-Files At The LA Film Festival

First, for TONS of videos, photos, conversation on the X-Files, join Big Light. It’s for fans, old and new of the X-Files. Now, this video gives an idea of what kind of fun was had by all at the X-Files Sneak Peak at the LAFF. It was made by the lovely Mya. Music: Walking in […]

I Believe

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 […]

Torchwood

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.

More Indiana Jones on Seesmic

The lovely VinVin has made a video talking about his personal role in getting the whole Indiana Jones on Seesmic thing to happen. He did so much that was unseen internally within Seesmic that I just want to thank him here. Thank you, lovely VinVin! For the record: my son said that ‘Indiana Jones and […]

Better Red Than Brain-Dead

I am Dana Scully.

I Want To Believe

The day has come. I can start talking about the X Files: I Want To Believe! I am an X Files fan- I own books, toys, trading cards, I even used to dye my hair red like Scully- so when I found out about the new film I emailed a colleague at 20th Century Fox […]

Skeptics and Robots and CERN. Oh My!

What a great time I’ve had over the past five days! As you will have already known, Phil Plait was over in the UK to visit CERN with us over the weekend. You can read about it on his site and, of course, the podcast he and Brian did will be going live soon, too. […]

Water Lilies Film

Water Lilies opens this week in London at the Curzon Soho, Brixton Ritzy, Cineworld Fulham, Odeon Swiss Cottage; the Duke of York’s in Brighton; and the Cameo in Edinburgh. I’ve already posted the trailer and a few clips, now I’ve got the first 6 minutes of the film (press play to watch).

Sexist? Racist? Go On, Find Out!

In the comments of the (oh, so over it now) Zuckerberg/Lacy post, I invited people to take the gender and race IATs at Harvard’s Project Implicit: Psychologists understand that people may not say what’s on their minds either because they are unwilling or because they are unable to do so. … The unwilling-unable distinction is […]

Water Lilies Film

As you probably know by now, I’m working on the online stuff for WaterLilies. I just found out that it’s in Time Out’s Critics Choice this week. Whooo-hoooo! It’s released this week in London at the Curzon Soho, Brixton Ritzy, Cineworld Fulham, Odeon Swiss Cottage; the Duke of York’s in Brighton; and the Cameo in […]

The World You Created

The main thing that’s been exciting Twitter/Blogland for the past 24 hours has been this whole SXSW Zuckerberg/Lacy thing and pretty much everyone except Jemima Kiss is tearing Sarah Lacy to shreds. Everyone’s been saying that she was ‘flirty’ and acted like a ‘bimbo’ and that she gave girls in tech a bad name.

African Einstein

During TED there was a lot of sniping online. People were jealous because they’d never been invited to attend or people were jealous because they’d never be able to afford to attend. People were bitchy about those who go to TED calling them elitist, smug, self-serving etc. My take on it is very, very different […]
