One minute, all is quiet. Next thing you know.... BOOM! So let's get going. Elijah was a busy guy during the E3 Expo in LA earlier this week. Click on the image below to see a page full of photos from the three day event.



:: Along with the other partners of SpectreVision and developers from Ubisoft, Elijah was at the expo to talk about their new VR game, Transference. Here are some videos:
SpectreVision and Ubisoft Panel
Ubisoft Press Announcement
E3 Coliseum Panel
A sit down interview

:: Just prior to E3, word came of Elijah's participation in another compelling video game titled, 11-11: Memories Retold, that comes out in November. Game developers, Bandai Namco, has a video explaining how the game transpired, and while at E3, Elijah had the chance to speak a bit about his involvement.

:: Before E3 went down, Elijah was in Des Moines to attend Wizard World. Click for pics. Here's a video from the guest's waiting area. Elijah appears around the 5:55 mark. And three more short videos from the Q&A [Video 1] [Video 2] [Video 3]

:: I discovered one video from the Q&A during MegaCon in Orlando, but take your Dramamine. It's a shaky one.

:: Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency is an award winning show. Of the seven categories it landed for the Leo Awards, it won four in the Dramatic Series group. Best Editing, Guest Performance-Male (Lee Majdoub/Silas) and Female (Agam Darshi/Wakti Wapnasi) and Supporting Performance-Female (Emily Tennant/Beast). Congrats to all! Now, how can a beloved, award winning program be cancelled?

:: Seasons 1 and 2 of Dirk Gently is now available on Hulu! Since people enjoyed the artwork I created last year, where the cast and crew sign it, I made another one for season two.

:: SpectreVision's well reviewed film, Mandy, is heading to the Sitges Film Festival in October.

:: And finally, Elijah lent his voice talent to Cartoon Network's Summer Camp Island as a yeti. He can voice just about anything!

That's all... for now.

Elijah is spreading himself all around the convention circuit. First there was Wizard World Comic Con in Philadelphia that contained five actors of LOTR together. That hasn't happened for nearly a year and a half.

:: There's also a video of the Q&A with Billy, Sean and hearing the story that made Elijah laugh so much.

:: Then this past weekend was MegaCon in Orlando. There's a short video of the autograph session, and a fairly poor quality video from a part of the Q&A. At least the sound is decent.

:: On the heels of that convention, Elijah is now heading to his home state of Iowa this weekend for another round with Wizard World in Des Moines.

:: And the weekend after is the E3 Expo in L.A. where Elijah is set to appear to bring the VR experience, Transference, a closer look to avid gamers and curious novices like myself.

:: With his hands not only in video gaming, but obviously, in music and movies too, Elijah is one of the guest curators for the newly launched, Boiler Room TV's, 4:3. You can sign up for free to view what he has contributed which is so engaging and so Elijah.

:: The fabulous inset photo along with one more was recently published from a photo shoot Elijah did way back in 2005 while promoting Everything Is Illuminated.

:: Lastly, Dirk Gently still lives on. If you have yet to witness this phenomenal show or want to relive the second season, it will be coming to Hulu beginning June 14th.

:: Thanks to all the convention attendees for sharing their photos and videos with us poor souls who couldn't go.

That's all... for now.

Well, that next convention has been announced. Elijah is scheduled to make his first appearance at Wizard World in Philadelphia this coming weekend along with Billy Boyd and Sean Astin. Attendees have the chance to have a photo-op with all three. Sean Bean and Karl Urban, will also be there, and according to their schedule, it now appears all of them will be together!

:: SpectreVision's film, Mandy, which has sold out all its international territories, had its showing at the Cannes Film Festival, Director's Fortnight over the weekend and it has come away with some incredible reviews from The Telegraph, Screen Daily and The UpComing. So, when is that trailer coming out?

:: I'm not quite sure when Elijah's admiration for Frank Lloyd Wright's architecture began, but he has been visiting more of his structures. Here are some photos of him and Mette-Marie at the Hollyhock House during the Foundation Board of Trustees Reception. [1] [2] [3]

:: Though Dirk Gently is sadly absent from the airwaves, it came back with some award nominations. The Leo Awards, which recognizes achievement in British Columbia film and television, has given the show seven nominations. Congratulations!

:: And because I can't let Dirk fade from my memory, I've made a mashup video from the second season.

That's all... for now.

Elijah is occupying his time by attended several festivals and conventions. First up was the Tribeca Film Festival where 7 Stages to Achieve Eternal Bliss..... premiered last weekend. Click here to view some photos from the event.

:: The film that was once titled Corpse Tub, inarguably, easier to remember, has released its poster and a clip from the horror/comedy, which has also gained some good reviews from Solzy at the Movies, Cryptic Rock and The Moveable Fest.

:: Next, was the Calgary Expo over this past weekend. Photos from attendees are right at the click. You can check out a video that highlights some of Elijah's Q&A session.

:: It was announced that SpectreVision's film, Mandy, will be going to the Cannes Film Festival as part of their Directors' Fortnight lineup in May. There is no official word yet if any of the SpectreVision partners will be in attendance.

:: Next on the list is MegaCon in Orlando. Elijah is scheduled for photo ops and signing in late May.

:: Finally, or until another is announced, the next convention is the E3 Expo in June. The convention's Facebook will live stream Elijah's participation as he discusses the new Transference VR experience. More info is sure to come.

That's all... for now.

Elijah performed a couple of deejaying gigs over the past few weeks. Here are some photo from them [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] and snippets of him in this video.

:: One of the gigs was spinning at The Breeders concert in Los Angeles. Not only was he "spinning records like it was no thang," he had the opportunity to interview the band for Magnet Magazine. While you wait to get your copy, you can read an excerpt.

:: Could there be something for us Dirk Gently fans? Executive Producer, Arvind Ethan David, hinted on Twitter that some small treats are being worked on from the short-lived, highly-loved series. Personally, I'm hoping for a DVD/Blu-ray packed with a lot of behind the scenes footage, a soundtrack, deleted scenes and an impressive gag reel.

:: Yes, it's be quiet, but I discovered a couple of new/old photos taken by Theo Jemison of Elijah during his work on Flying Lotus' music video, Tiny Tortures in 2012. The inset photo is one and click for the other.

That's all... for now.

Last weekend the March for Our Lives rally was held across the nation as well as other countries, and Elijah along with his girlfriend participated with the tens of thousands that gathered in downtown Los Angeles. Here's a short video and a photo that captured them among the demonstrators.

:: Before that and just at the end of SXSW, Elijah took to the waters of Austin to do some bassquatch fishing. [1] [2]

:: SpectreVision has unleashed their first mobile game, Join Dispatch, which can be downloaded. This seems like a unique undertaking, so if you want to know what this entails, read more about it here.

:: Director of I Don't Feel at Home..., Macon Blair, shared a photo on Twitter of some of the cast that was taken on set.

:: If you live in or near L.A., and want to catch The Breeders next Thursday, April 5th, the added bonus is a DJ set from Elijah. Get your tickets!

:: Finally, I stumbled upon a site that has a number of podcasts that Elijah has given or are about him. Most are still active, so if you'd like to catch up on some old interviews, head on over to PodBean.

That's all... for now.

South by Southwest Festival is winding down in Austin and Elijah has been there to spin some tunes, do a little hosting and just enjoying himself. You can find some images from SXSW here.

:: There are some short videos from attendees who got to witness the dynamic duo of Wooden Wisdom. [Video 1] [Video 2] [Video 3] [Video 4]

:: Going through the images from SXSW, you'll catch Elijah in a cowboy hat and an ominous "wanted" poster. This was from the SXSWestworld attraction hosted by HBO and held during the festival. It looks like a pretty awesome experience and you can read a spectator's account of what went down between Elijah and the sheriff of Sweetwater.

:: Next month, Tribeca Film Festival will screen Company X's latest film.... hold on now... 7 Stages to Achieve Eternal Bliss by Passing Through the Gateway Chosen by the Holy Storsh, as part of the midnight screenings. And we thought I Don't Feel at Home in this World Anymore was a mouthful.

:: Switching over to SpectreVision, their film, Mandy, has been picked up and slated for a summer release in the U.S.

:: Elijah will perform a DJ set in Hollywood next month and has been slated to make an appearance at MegaCon in Orlando in May.

:: I'll end this update with the discouraging news that despite fans gallant efforts and attempts producers made, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency will not see another season. The announcement came just on the heels of the petition surpassing 100,000 signatures and a postcard campaign that was in full swing to harvest one more season. Obviously, us die hard fans are upset but somewhat understanding that we won't get to experience the next mystery with Dirk, Todd, Amanda, Farah, Bart, Ken, The Rowdy 3 and what other manic characters comes their way. Where else could receptive people watch a perfect combination of a mystifying comedy, heartfelt characters and clever storytelling? Dirk Gently was consistently showered with great reviews, so it's tough to see such an extraordinary delightful and highly engaging program cut short without giving viewers closure and Dirk Gently a proper farewell. It has been one of the most diverse and loyal fan bases for a television show I've been a part of. However, executive producer Arvind David left a little hope that Dirk could be resurrected at some point. You can read his statement here and a lovely wrap up from writer Max Landis here. There may not have been as many trees in Dirk's forest as they wanted, but the trees that are there are tall and strong and that forest could use more seeds from the farmers. All that being said, I don't feel Dirktectives will give up.

That's all... for now.
