The man-made Sixth Extinction is really happening right now!
– Nearly one-third of the 27,600 land-based mammal, bird, amphibian and reptile species studied are shrinking in terms of their numbers and territorial range. The researchers called that an “extremely high degree of population decay.”
– “we’ve wiped out 50% of the Earth’s wildlife in the last 40 years”
– “if we kept up with that pace, there would be no more wild elephants in Africa in 20 years.”

What XF comics after Joe Harris finishes his run in August?
“JFK Disclosure”! On the JFK assassination, a 2-parter written by IDW editor Denton J. Tipton, for October-November. Looks CSM and Bill Mulder -heavy. Also, “Origins” comics are continuing. So, IDW will be doing these specials from now on, with no connective tissue between them?

RIP George Romero AND Martin Landau! Romero was a master of horror and a big inspiration to the genre after his 1968 cult film Night of the Living Dead. He nearly directed a zombie-themed X-Files episode in season 7, what I guess ultimately became the episode Millennium. Landau portrayed Kurtzweil in the Fight the Future movie, among other things (Space 1999, Ed Wood)…

Mitch “Big Bald Man” Pileggi officially confirmed for season 11 – no surprise here, next will be WBDavis, but I do hope he’ll get more scenes than what he got in s10. With shooting starting in barely over two weeks, casting news should start accelerating now.

s11: Duchovny explains he’d rather give fans more Mulder than spend time behind the camera on writing and directing. That’s considerate! He seems interested though, maybe by season 12 he will have fleshed out an idea.

Duchovny on “Cold Cases” and the upcoming season 11. “Chris seems to be happy with the arch or the central idea they’ve chosen for this season to play around in.”: so there *is* a central idea? Truth and lies? The season 10 retcon of the mythology was a “fake news” coverup?

A “Cold Cases” review.

“It is unclear as to why Audible and/or Dirk Maggs, in seeking to create some X-Files audio adventures, selected The X-Files: Season 10 as the source material rather than doing original material in the Revival continuity.”
“The script itself was approved by Chris Carter who led a new run of X-Files TV episodes that dismiss and ignore the Cold Cases content entirely and Maggs has made no revisions to the audio version to sync with the TV show it claims to lead into.” “Cold Cases is (eventually) convincing as an X-Files audio drama and Maggs proves correct in his assertion: at no point was I troubled by the Revival being at odds with Cold Cases. Joe Harris’ strong storytelling skills remain superb in this new format and the events and action are engaging and exciting.”
