• Outlander Season 3 Collector’s Edition: What’s in the box?

    As Droughtlander labors on, super fans like me pre-ordered the Season 3 Collector’s Edition and when it arrived, gleefully unwrapped the package with a smirk not unlike that of the Amazon’s logo. The first thing I noticed was how light it was compared to the hulking Season One Collector’s Edition but on second thought there

  • That’s a Wrap on 2017! The Posts, Pics, Tweets, and Squees

      My trip to Scotland and the premiere of Season 3 were my focal points in 2017. The first few months, I geared up for my trip to the Motherland and joined Instagram:   Merrell wins the Which Are Best For Exploring Scotland sneaker?

  • An Outlandish Chat with Photographer Martin Scott Powell

    Earlier this year before I traveled to Scotland, I got a little help from a native Scot named Martin Scott Powell. We met through Ellen Christine a mutual milliner friend (her interview is here). During Outlander‘s Season 2 promotion, I tweeted how beautiful the Departures magazine photos of Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe were. Ellen responded

  • When Tobias Heard My Twitter Handle – San Diego Comic Con 2017

    The genius actor behind Black Jack Randall/Frank Randall in “Outlander”, the bumbling Edmure Tully on “Game of Thrones”, the tortured Brutus in “Rome”, the-gynecologist-with-a-penchant-for-gay-clubs Dr.Harries in “Catastrophe”, the smooth Nathaniel (“The Bodyguard”) Bloom in “The Honourable Woman”, and finally The Sexy, Smart, and Talented Boyfriend Lead in my quirky/rom-com/dramedy feature film co-starring me as The Neurotic

  • Urban in Scotland: Day 1 Glasgow & the West End

    When I arrive in Glasgow on a late Wednesday morning, the weather is fine. Hey I didn’t come here for the sun (there is none)! Although on my first day, it’s none of that Scottish “dreich” (Scots word for the wet, cold, gloomy weather) that I hear so much about. Yes it was cloudy but

You can read a review of it here.   In light of appreciation for the hard work that goes into making this show, I really need to give my two cents about some other hot-button Outlander things that I

  • When Sparks Light the Fire – Fandom Through My Years

    Cassettes, CDs, posters, live recordings, pins, VHS tapes, concert tickets, t-shirts, baseball hats, magazine clippings, MTV interviews and music videos…   When I was an adolescent, I had an obsession with the band Bush. For any who may not know, this was Gavin Rossdale’s band in the mid to late 90’s (it was never just

  • An Outlandish Hat Chat with Ellen Christine Couture

      Ellen Christine is a very cool lady. She’s a milliner and for those of us who are not familiar with that term (I for one!), it basically means that she makes hats for women. Nestled in a corner of the West Village in New York City, her atelier is a wonderland of fabrics, ribbons,

  • The Red Carpet! The Panel! The Tartan! The Premiere!

    Just as Claire reaches her hand out to Frank and, in a brilliant camera twirl, we are suddenly back in the past! Season 2 has premiered and though the week leading up to it is gone like a handsome Highlander of yore, I ask that you take my hand as we time-travel to the weeks

  • When you want to be a Big Bad Producer on a show like Outlander

      Since the start of the new year, I’ve been focused on gaining more clarity about what I want my career to look like.  I listened to Maril Davis explain how she bailed on Ronald D.Moore when she began working for him and then through the twists and turns of life ended up working for
