Congratulations Cygnus! You’re never sleeping again…

We just wanted to take a moment to recognize the extraordinary effort that Cygnus is making to continue to deprive himself of any hope of getting a full night’s sleep.  In addition to having spent many sleepless nights getting Second Shifters’ first dedicated server up and running back when we were first starting out, he just yesterday welcomed into the world the third addition to his family – his second baby girl.

A little searching over on Wikipedia reveals that his nickname is also a constellation.  That’s fairly fitting, as he’s probably going to have plenty of opportunities to look up and see it in the sky over the next year or two.

Here’s to you, your family, and your insomnia Cygnus.  Congratulations!

Sanctuary is Infected

Unfortunately, we won’t be having a podcast this weekend due to the sickness that Sanctuary has come down with.  With Justin Bieber’s potential deportation to Canada pending, it begs the question – Is she suffering from Bieber Fever?  Or maybe it’s Football Fever?  Cast your votes in the comments…

The CW Posts the Directors Cut of “The Originals”

Although the T.V. Series doesn’t begin its First Season on air until October 3, 2013, The CW is currently playing the prequel directors cut version of the episode that launched the show. It contains 10 minutes of unaired footage, including footage that proves I’m still a hopeless romantic at heart.

I’ve read they will be filming a whole new episode for the actual launch in October.

Those in the United States can watch the episode here for as long as they have it up.

(P.S. If you watch the episode, the image chosen for this post will give you insight into one of the many reasons why Elijah is my favorite or The Originals.)

The Art of Darkness

It was ten years ago that Second Shifters let out its first breath of digital air onto the internet.  The stream started broadcasting late in the evening, just as the clock ticked over to June 13th, 2003.  Friday.  That date wasn’t an accident, and the fact that it was the middle of the night wasn’t just to observe the change of days.
