Wherein I read things, laugh [or not], and pass them on to you…
*Fans self* Yum! A heavier, older Riddick is very easy on the eyes!
A still from the RIddick set this year… we are in post and I can’t tell you how excited I am to see it manifest. You all were such a part of it becoming a reality… willed it into being, so to speak…
P.s. Filming Fast this summer is going to be incredible, haha… Thank you again for the opportunity to make magic. [Vin Diesel/07 May 2012]
Q: After two seasons, you must feel like an old pro on set. What aspects of production still surprise you?
A: One thing that’s surprising me is how much I’ve fallen in love with Georgia. The town Senoia where we’re filming is absolutely beautiful…The big change this season is we’ve got this amazing prison that we’re filming in. It’s absolutely stunning, and I never get used to being on set.
Q: What went into constructing the prison?
A: They’ve taken a lot of what you see in the comic book series and brought it to life in ways that I didn’t think possible. This is going to be one of the most impressive looking things that’s ever been put together for a show.
Q: With the evil Governor in the picture, does that mean the humans are the bigger threat this season?
A: The plan was always to evolve naturally into a place where the zombies essentially become a manageable threat. You know the rules. You know how to deal with them. To a certain extent they become something to not really be scared of unless you mess up. Humans, however, do not follow any rules and will always do something that surprises you and are capable of doing things far worse than trying to eat you…We’re definitely going to be seeing a lot of horrible things.

• Imagine a world in which politicians dictate to doctors that they must lie to their patients. Actually you don’t have to. The Kansas House of representative passed this law today.
• “Do What We Say or the Women Will Die”: That may sound like some kind of villainous threat in a Wild West melodrama, but it is exactly what the Rick Perry administration in Texas is saying today. Planned Parenthood is suing the state for unlawfully excluding PP and its hundreds of thousands of patients from life-saving women’s health services. Perry’s health czar says that if Planned Parenthood wins the state will shut down the entire Women’s Health Program. [firedoglake/Glenn W. Smith/06 May 2012]
