So I'd just like to inform you all that Michael Shanks now has a Save Our Stargate bracelet courtesy of MOI and he really fell in love with it. Also they have been a big hit at the Burbank SG-1 Creation Con and a lot of people are wondering where do they get em. :)

So my monkey is less one collar but he didn't mind giving it up for Michael. *snerk*

Just thought you should know :) So lyndynasty thank you again for these! *smooch*

Also sad news, he's pretty much confirmed there will be no Season 11 (because if there was, they'd get ready to start shooting for March) but there will be TWO movies and the last ep will NOT resolve anything. Doh!

Also if you didn't already know, it is pretty much ALL about the money. Sci-Fi has NO money in SG-1. They have money in SGA. SG-1 is too expensive to make (like 2 mil an ep) where SGA is 1 mil. So it's not a popularity issue. It all comes down to money. I've had this told to me by more than a few sources. Very sad news, but well that's politics unfornuately. The cons will continue, there's movies, possible other things, so um yeah at least the franchise will live on.

Oh and to end, Colin Cunningham, Cliff Simon, and Michael Shanks really are the NUTS! (meaning as they say in my Poker Room, they are serious Aces. Nut flush is totally what you wanna have because it's unbeatable, so when someone says that something is the NUTS, it means it's a REALLY good thing.)

But I just think it's cool that Michael loved the bracelet. Actually JR, Cliff, and Colin all thought they were kinda neat too :) So yep, total hit. I so love mine. And Danny loves his. Hee :)

It's a shame that the series won't be returning, but at least there are two movies to look forward to as well as the cool-factor of the cast liking the bracelets. That's awesome. :)

I love that Michael loved the bracelets. As did everyone else (and not just cast, but lots of fans too). They are just so way cool. I absolutely *heart* mine and I'm still sad we won't get Season 11, cuz I still believe there's so many more stories to tell, but I'm excited about the possibilities of the movies, possible spin-offs, and/or crossovers. :) So yay for hope, yeah?

I have a friend who is there at the con and she says that Michael said something about starting to film the movies in the spring???
TB: daniel smile-imthelobsterteddibear on November 20th, 2006 08:21 am (UTC)
Yeah I think he did say that. He seemed pretty excited about it :) And I so love your icon. I need to icon my photo op *g* :)

Erin Andersonerin_anderson on November 20th, 2006 05:24 pm (UTC)
Ooooh do you have a hot one too?? Mines from the Chicago 06 con.
TB: daniel *thud*-icon_ascensionteddibear on November 21st, 2006 08:10 am (UTC)
I do :) Well I quite love it :) See? *g*

Erin Andersonerin_anderson on November 21st, 2006 12:02 pm (UTC)
Very cute! Was that just taken this past weekend in Burbank? Cause it looks like the outfit he was wearing there...
TB: daniel smile-imthelobsterteddibear on November 21st, 2006 04:13 pm (UTC)
*big ol' grin* Yes :) It was before I had him sign Danny's foot (the Monkey) :)

Also before I had gotten into costume. I look well normal there. LOL.

He looked very yummy this weekend :) Loved the shirt.

Were you there? Cuz if so we may have met. :)
Erin Andersonerin_anderson on November 22nd, 2006 02:13 am (UTC)
Nope I was merely there in spirit. You may have met two friends of mine, Chelle and her sister Kris, they were sitting front row. Two blonde girls with lots of cameras and honkin flashes. Chelle was texting me all day Sat giving me Michael updates while I languished at work *sigh*. Nope I usually only make two cons a year, Chicago and Vancouver. Am hoping to make Vancouver in March but it's still up in the air at this point....
TB: daniel arm/book blank-_other_worlds_teddibear on November 22nd, 2006 02:17 am (UTC)
I did meet them both. Lovely ladies both of em. They'll remember me as Vala. Heh.

I would LOVE to do Vancouver but I so can't afford it. I'm starting to save for Burbank next year already so barring any complications I should be there. :)

Hee, well she probably sent some fantastic text msgs! He had some very wild answers :)

*hugs* maybe one day we will meet then :) And I so love your photo op. He's such a card. When we did mine, he squeezed the Monkey's arm so of course it did my "Now, where's my Daniel?" and I'm trying my hardest to smile and NOT laugh. Doh!
Erin Andersonerin_anderson on November 22nd, 2006 10:11 pm (UTC)
Gods I love Michael. If you're ever on gateworld.net's forum (I spend a lot of time there and am well known over there) you've probably read quite a few of my con stories with him. Do you have MSN? Maybe somenight you'll be online and I can indulge you. I so love telling my tales, they are such interesting stories and I am sure you have a few of your own. I have done Vancouver twice now and both times I've told myself it'll be the last and there's no way I can make it again but somehow I always seem to make it back. And I'm living in the KC-Metro area so it's super easy for me to attend Chicago since it's so close...
TB: daniel geek years-fenciteddibear on November 22nd, 2006 11:25 pm (UTC)
I've been contemplating going on Gateworld and saying hi, but have yet to actually get around to it. I was reading some of the Burbank con thread but I love stories :) I don't have MSN, but I do have AIM and I'm always on. Or there's always e-mail or LJ :)

Yeah I live in Vegas, so Burbank is literally a hop, skip, and a jump away. But I do hope to attend Vancouver someday. Hee! :) Just a matter of time and money. I will be doing Burbank next year though. I'm starting to save now :) And I'm going Gold again cuz it's so very worth it. :)

*hugs* fandom can be so fun! :) *g*
Erin Andersonerin_anderson on November 23rd, 2006 12:06 am (UTC)
Well I just friended you so we definitely have LJ! You're a fellow THING fan as well (all hail Dr. Jackson's Diary and Anais! *bows*) and we're the same age! It'a shocker, most of my online friends are way older than me or way younger. Feel free to friend me as well, I don't have as much written in my LJ page but I am trying to get better at that. I'm also on myspace as well, under the same first and last name. You definitely need to come join GW we have such a blast at cons and definitely if you ever have the chance to hit Vancouver, GW always does a dinner there.
TB: dr j's diary d/j convo-exitmusic__teddibear on November 23rd, 2006 12:34 am (UTC)
LOL, you're added :) And yes I have Dr. Jackson's Diary and nilahasi to blame for my foray into SG-1 in the first place :) *snerk* And ooh yay for the same age! Wicked! :) Well I'm definitely contemplating it. Will have to see when I have some downtime. I still gotta finish my write ups. Oy. But now I need to get to work. LOL. First day back after six days off. Toodles! :)

Suesuebsg9 on November 19th, 2006 03:59 pm (UTC)
Either March or May is when the movies are suppost to be filming; Cliff said in NJ since I guess he was asked to be in them.

TB: danny kidnapped fangirls-icon_ascensionteddibear on November 20th, 2006 08:23 am (UTC)
Yeah he also seemed quite excited about that too. So we may have some movies sooner than we think! *g* :)

Man, Cliff Simon is so cool. I have new love for Ba'al. Not that I didn't love him already but after this weekend, *guh* *flails*

He sat me on his lap at the breakkie. And it was all his idea! Hee. OMG. Ok stopping the fangirliness now. *g*
cyren_2132cyren_2132 on November 19th, 2006 06:13 pm (UTC)
Well, I'm honestly not that disappointed about there not being an 11th season, but I'd be very disappointed if everything stopped at season 10. So, yay for movies!

My only question is that I meant to sent thank you letters to the cast while season 10 was still filming. If it's not obvious by the "I meant to...," I didn't. I would still like to send them, but the only addresses I have all were all c/o the studio. Would that work, do you think, or should I be looking up manager addresses and whatnot?
TB: daniel now on-imthelobsterteddibear on November 20th, 2006 08:20 am (UTC)
I have no idea about that to tell you the truth. But since MGM is still obviously in contact with the actors, probably the studio would be a good bet.

Oh and again DON'T QUOTE ME, but there has definitely been talk going round of possible SG-1 character crossovers to SGA. So we may still see our team pop up on SGA. May make me have to start WATCHING SGA. Oh dear. LOL. When I asked Torri who she'd most love to see cross over, she said Daniel and Jack. So could you imagine it? Daniel in Atlantis? I reckon it could work. And if Michael did get on SGA pretty regularly hell than I'd definitely start watching. Hee! *g*

So yes don't give up hope. Our fandom, our franchise, it will LIVE ON. MGM does not want to shut it down. This is all on Sci-Fi pretty much. So movies, possible spin-offs, and possible crossovers. It's all talk atm, but at least, hey it will keep us hoping. And obviously nothing is happening to the sets yet cuz Creation is doing the con in Vancouver in March (or is it May?) and there's set tours involved. So yeah, let's not fret. Sadly no more weekly eps which really sucks but much like the Firefly story continues in Serenity and other possible projects, Stargate SG-1 WILL CONTINUE. Our efforts definitely were not for naught.

lyndasty on November 19th, 2006 08:45 pm (UTC)
Michael will have 2 bracelets since his bracelet was sent to him just after all the rest of the bracelets went out.
TB: d/v started it-artifussteddibear on November 20th, 2006 08:15 am (UTC)
Hee, I don't think he will mind in the least. He was very impressed with it. As were many others at the con. :) I'm still wearing mine proudly (and have been for weeks at work where I have been educating people on the cancellation) and Danny still has his on. So we're still ATTATCHED basically. *snerk*

You can't see it in many of Michael's pics from the con cuz he had on a lovely long sleeve black pullover, but trust me it was there. I saw a few flashes every now and again :)

Again thank you hun. I'm glad you did get to send them out. Hopefully everyone will get em :) I think Colin wanted one. Heh.
babaloney_w00 on November 22nd, 2006 09:03 pm (UTC)
Who else got one hunny? No need for all the names if the list's too long...

TB: d/v started it-artifussteddibear on November 20th, 2006 08:13 am (UTC)
DO NOT QUOTE ME, but I asked a question about if he were to write, direct, or produce again, what would he do and who would he cast (so basically who would he most want to work with and in what project) and he said and I dunno if he was joking or not but him and Claudia were talking about writing a sitcom. So again DON'T QUOTE ME on anything happening but who knows? Maybe one day we will see a collaboration between em *snerk* :)

Thought you may enjoy that. *g* Also we will see some resolution to the D/V storyline. Probably one of the ONLY resolutions we will get. And for all his talk about no romance for Daniel, he seemed kinda excited about the him and Vala thing. *g*
(Deleted comment)
TB: d/v kill her-icon_ascensionteddibear on November 21st, 2006 08:12 am (UTC)
LOL well all I can say is for how vocal he's been about no romo for Daniel, he seemed kinda happy with the way things turn out between Vala and Daniel. So like I said, there's hope :)

What really cracked me up was that he liked the alternate ending for 200 (wherein Daniel and Jack were holding hands) *snerk*
