Dayle McLeod (Jenny in “Vessel”) has written her first book, a memoir titled: “THE BIG DREAM: My Terrifyingly Beautiful Shamanic Initiation into the Arts”. After drinking the hallucinogen ayahuasca in Ojai, California on the winter solstice of 2014, McLeod found herself trapped in a dream realm. For forty days, she lived in a land of epic visions where she was initiated into the Illuminati and sent on a doomsday mission to collect the seven chakra jewels of the Earth. She was guided back to normalcy by a Native American Jungian psychologist, and that journey is what the book is mostly about. THE BIG DREAM is available in Paperback and Kindle formats.
McLeod appears briefly as Nathan’s friend Shyliegh in Episode 4.12 of KIM’S CONVENIENCE (titled “Knife Strife”) in which Umma (Jean Yoon) learns about a recent unsolved crime in the neighbourhood and believes she knows something about it, but doesn’t want to say how she knows, and Shannon (Nicole Power) hosts the Branch Managers Annual General Meeting. Season 4 of KIM’S CONVENIENCE can be streamed on CBC Gem in Canada, and on Netflix in the US. Continue reading →
PROJECT BLUE BOOK – Season 2 Episode 10 – SPOILERS
Susie (Ksenia Solo) and Mimi (Laura Mennell) in what looks like a classic confrontation between East and West with the Generals between in the background.
NATO’s fleet in the North Atlantic is plagued with UFO sightings which the fleet commander attributes to the Russians, causing him to set a course dangerously close to Soviet waters. Hynek and Quinn must prove the extraterrestrial (or at least non-Soviet) nature of these craft to prevent World War III. The first question that comes to mind is: What are these ETs thinking? Having observed human military activities throughout World War II, they must be aware of how people will respond to their sudden and uncommunicative appearance in such a situation. Are they trying to start a war? Continue reading →
We don’t get to see Susie (Ksenia Solo) at all, but we do hear about her. General Harding (Neal McDonough) tells General Valentine (Michael Harney): “They still can’t crack her, Jim. They’ve been interrogating her for three days and she’ll only say that she was sent to Ohio to find out about our UFO program.”
Only two women appear in this episode. Jean (Kelly-Ruth Mercier) gives Hynek an eyewitness account of the UFO event, and Faye (Jill Morrison) recognizes Senator Kennedy on sight when he comes to see Hynek and Quinn. Other than that it’s an all-boys episode, and Hynek spends most of it trying to bolster Quinn’s self-image after his relationship with Susie causes him to be placed on Administrative Leave.
