Thought it was appropriate to put this up.  I just enjoyed watching it again.  

Holiday interview.

Oy Vey My Son is Gay

Posted by LadyNRA on July 25, 2014 at 9:05 PM Comments comments (0)

Just got this in the mail and watched it immediately.  Absolutely loved it.  My husband  and I got a lot of chuckles out of it.  Essentially it focuses on a Jewish couple whose son tells them he's gay and introduces them to this fact in one of the worst ways possible (at a family event).  Saul and Lainie Kazan were so great together.  She was the strong matriarch of the family and Marty (Saul) was a low-key, somewhat hen-pecked husband who generally responds to his wife's strong personality by just letting her words flow around him rather than taking them personally.  But the main part of the story is how Marty and his wife deal with the news that their only son is gay.  They try to change him, they try to understand him and eventually they come to accept him and his lover.  There was good chemistry between the two young men and the writers kept any form of explicit affection out of the film which, in my opinion, was good news because it means the film won't offend most folks.

Saul will be appearing in a film called Gridlocked.   He's got 5th billing so hopefully it will be a fairly large part.


Season 5 DVD

Many many thanks once more to Jack Kenny for giving Artie's Angels a shout out on one of the 5th season podcasts (Secret Services).  Even after all this time, it still amazes me that at least once a seson he remembers us.  And I know I speak for all the admins when I say we're grateful to him for it because thanks to him our little group got a whole lot of attention from fans listening to the podcasts.  This means that we have gotten a mention at least once (and sometimes more often) each season since the second one.

Loved the behind the scenes segments (about 6 plus a bonus), the gag reel, outtakes and I had a great time rewatching the 2nd Christmas special.

Two interesting podcast tidbits that stick out in my mind...

When doing the last episode scene where Artie is blasting the Warehouse for never even giving him a tiny thank you, Jack mentioned Saul pulled up imagery of how he'd feel if his wife had just left him for a younger more handsome man and then delivered the lines to the Warehouse with those emotions to back him up.  They were going to avoid having Artie call the Warehouse a 'whore' and I know it seemed out of  place to some of you, but I thought it was perfect.  As he says immediately after using that word, he tells the Warehouse how it sold out to the highest bidder, so I'd say the word fit the situation.  And yes, I still get teary-eyed when I see that scene.  

Also Eddie mentioned that the Fantastic Voyage scene (with Jinks in Artie's heart) would probably spark a lot of fanfiction stories and since several of us have already thought the same thing, he's probably right about that happening.   ;)

"It's A Wondeful Life Artie" Chapter 8 - Part 3

“What exactly are you looking for now?” Ronnie asked nervously.

She was already burdened with an odd assortment of “weapons” and she was getting impatient. All she could see was Artie’s feet as he dug through a pile of clothes.

“Aha! Found it!” Artie said waving a long strip of red cloth as he backed out of the pile of clothes.

Ronnie just stared speechless. But as she looked at all the crazy things that Artie grabbed as they madly dashed down the aisles and then at that piece of scrap he looked so proud about she blurted, “How is a dirty piece of cloth going to help?!”

“You’ll see. Let’s get back to the others.”

If Ronnie was doubtful about Artie’s choice of weapons, Andrew and Claudia were flabbergasted!

“Have you lost your mind, Mosh?”

“On the contrary and stop calling me that,” Artie snapped at Claudia as he sorted through the artifacts he gathered.

“What can a brick, a reflex hammer, a strip of cloth, fireworks, a disco ball, a trumpet and,” Claudia stops in mid tirade and picks something up from the table, “my God, is this a bikini?!”

“Do not disrespect the artifacts! Never under estimate the power of even the most innocent looking artifact!’ Artie yells, “Besides, I know what I’m doing. Trust me.”

Claudia opens her mouth to reply when suddenly, they hear gun fire. Andrew and Ronnie run to the entrance of the Bronze Room.

Artie chuckles, “I knew he would try to shoot his way out of the dodge balls. That’s our cue boys and girls to leave. Where is Mrs. Frederic?”

Looking around, Artie spots Mrs. Frederic unceremoniously dumped into a wheelbarrow. Her arms and legs splayed. Artie splutters, “A wheelbarrow? You put her in a wheelbarrow? This is Mrs. Frederick man!”

"I’m sorry Artie, it was the only thing that would roll. I found a cart but there were no keys and I couldn’t figure out how to operate it.” Andrew says.

“A cart? Where?” Artie grabs Andrew, “Show me!”

As Artie pushes Andrew out of the room, he says “Ronnie put on the bikini.” Ronnie starts to protest. Artie points his finger at her, “AHHH! Don’t ask, just do it.”

Artie puts his head back in, “Just make sure you cover up with the coat!”

Andrew takes Artie to the cart. “A bioelectric car!” Artie whoops loudly as he hops into the cart. “Hurry up and get in!” motioning to Andrew.

“But Artie, this thing doesn’t…” Andrew begins to protest as Artie places his hand on the bar and the cart lurches forward, “work.”

“Just keep your hands on the bar. It uses our bioelectric energy.” Artie says as he moves towards the Bronze room.

“How do you know this stuff?” Andrew asks for the thousandth time. And for the umpteenth time, Artie replies. “I read about it in a book.”

As Andrew and Claudia move Mrs. Frederick to the cart, Artie motions for Ronnie to follow.

Artie points to a spot high up on one of the shelves, “I need you to place the disco ball there.”

It was killing Ronnie, she really wanted to ask him what a disco ball, a net, a carpet and those fireworks could do for them but she knew what he would say. “Well, I’ve trusted him this long but when this is over I’m going to get the whole story,” she thought to herself.

“Get back to the others. I’ve got a few more surprises for Ben and his band of thugs. Tell Claudia to head for the Bed and Breakfast. But don’t go in until I get there.”

“Artie, you can’t possibly hold off Ben and the others by yourself. They have probably called for reinforcements.” Ronnie protested. “Let me stay and help you.”

Artie looked at Ronnie, “I’m not alone.” Artie raises his hands and turns in a circle and says, “I’ve got the Warehouse to help me. Besides I’ll need you later. Now go on and help them get Mrs. Frederick to safety.”

Artie waited impatiently for Ben and his troops to show up. By now James and Carol had been alerted and it would only be a matter of time before they entered the fray. All he needed was time for Mrs. Frederick to wake up and help him find the wishing kettle.

Just when he thought that he would have to go find Ben and lure him to the Bronze room, he saw someone stick their head out from one of the aisles. Whoever he was he used those silly military motions to communicate with the others in his group. (Artie was still a little sore about the grade he got during maneuvers because of those hand signs.)

Artie watched as Ben and his team rushed into the Bronze room. Ben came out first, he looked a little rough. In fact, his whole team was bruised and disheveled. Artie wanted to laugh but he couldn’t give his position away.

As Artie suspected, Ben took a walkie talkie out and said a few words and more agents came out of the aisles to form up in front of Ben.

Artie moved in a little closer. Ben’s walkie talkie beeped. James’ voice emanated from it, “Have you found Agents Morton, Spencer and Donovan?”

“Not yet, sir. It appears that the bronzer was used.”

James didn’t sound surprised when he spoke again, “Who was de-bronzed?”

Ben answered, “Sir, 2 people were de-bronzed; Subject # AN-435 and IF-256.”

Ben waited several minutes for a response and then asked, “What are your orders sir?”

“Hold your position,” replied James, “We will rendezvous with you in 15 minutes.”

Artie knew that would be disastrous. He had to make sure that Ben and his team was scattered and incapacitated before James arrived. “Think Nielsen, what to do?”

Then it dawned on him, Ben Hall was arrogant and it would only take a small nudge to get him to move. 

Artie rolls out the carpet he had kept with him. As soon as the carpet was unrolled it began to rise. Artie hopped on to the carpet. The carpet slowly rose above the shelves. Artie cleared his throat to get the attention of Ben and his team.

Ben and his men point their weapons at Artie.


The Last Episode Tonight

Posted by MARRA on May 19, 2014 at 6:15 PM Comments comments (1)

I cant believe that tonight is the end of the Warehouse. 2 years ago I started a story called "It's A Wonderful Life Artie". I'm afraid that after 2 surgeries and work I let the time slip away and have not finished the story. However, I have written a few more pages that I would like to share with you in honor of the series finale. It is my goal to finish this monstrous undertaking before my next surgery in August. I've enjoyed all the stories that have been created and  hope to see more. LONG LIVE THE WAREHOUSE!

P.S. I just want to point out that the writers on the show have used my ideas in several episodes. I must have been channeling my ideas to them. Shame I cant get any credit for the alternate time line and a modern looking warehouse.

Some brief info about the 5th season story lines

Posted by LadyNRA on February 19, 2014 at 11:40 AM Comments comments (1)

From a recent article: WARNING - vague SPOILERS




Returns Monday, April 14 at 9PM – Everything has been building to the fifth and final season. Claudia's (Allison Scagliotti) epic battle with Paracelsus (Anthony Head) will unleash an unexpected horror — and the Warehouse may never be the same. In the new season, the entire Warehouse team confronts old questions – and new revelations. From a painful realization that Pete (Eddie McClintock) and Myka (Joanne Kelly) must face, and Artie (Saul Rubinek) accompanying Claudia on a soul-searching journey about her sister, to Steve (Aaron Ashmore) colliding with his past, the final six episodes of Warehouse 13 takes viewers on an emotionally-charged roller coaster ride. Warehouse 13 is produced for Syfy by Universal Cable Productions. Jack Kenny (The Book of Daniel) is executive producer and showrunner.
