"Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand!" Mark Twain (1835-1910)"But you see, just because we've been dealt a certain hand doesn't mean we can't choose to rise above it. To conquer the boundaries of a destiny none of us wanted. To try and retain whatever essential humanity we can." ~Edward from TwilightHistoric Connections Ancient history resources business my Dad runs...go check it out

Hi Bam Bam:
Well, I just returned from a wedding in the mountains close to a place called Frank Slide. You must have visited there in your travels. It's amazing what nature can do.
This is the mountain after the slide that buried a town in 1903 killing 70 people. It was caused by the unstable rock that made up the mountain.
An image of the rubble in the aftermath. In places, it was three stories high. As it traveled down the mountain, it moved with such force, that the rubble traveled over a mile away and deposited boulders that were bigger than houses. It would make for an awesome storyline. I thought I'd share my experience regarding that natural disaster with everyone.
Anyway, since you are in the industry, do you need to have an agent like the writers and actors?

Interesting to read about your varied martial arts experience BamBam. I used to take Shukokai karate classes myself and got as far as orange belt before having to give up due to moving countries!! I found it had an amazing effect on overall fitness and flexibility (especially given that I have both tight tendons *and* arthritis in my knees) - the regular stretching exercises at the beginning of each class worked wonders over time.
It gave me a lot of confidence too... I remember at the time getting hassled by a guy in a bar who just wouldn't quit despite repeated polite requests and eventually I just turned to him and said, "If you touch me once more, I will break your *insert swear word* arm." He left rapidly at that point. Now I may not actually have been able to break his arm but karate gave me the confidence to sound as though I damn well meant to have a go and, as my Sensei told me, I effectively used karate in self-defence there.. as my confidence in my ability to defend myself physically meant that I was able to stop the situation *before* it became physical.
I really should think about taking it up again.....
Ah yes, the Frank Slide. I just learned about it in University. The theory goes that there was a Coal seam near the base of the mountain and it was the mining that contributed to the slide. The town that got buried was named Frank, by the way.
are there days you're really not looking forward too while working on Atlantis
BamBam... just saw Silver Surfer (very fun flick) and saw your name in the credits, but couldn't spot ya. What exactly did you do for them?
OMG I *so* want to see that! (Not only for Chris Evans and Ioan Gruffudd but I like Jessica Alba as an actress too) And now I have an extra reason to watch it
