1/3 PLUS 1/3 EQUALS…?

Posted by Daniel S. on Friday, February 16, 2024, In : books and movies 

THAT’S where JET Progress is currently in the production (filming) state of OTOSOTU (pronounced “Oh-Toe-So-Two” for “On The Other Side Of The Universe, a Science Futuring drama about the human soul).


Science Futuring? There lots of science fiction and fantasy out there, so what’s science futuring? First it’s about science, which, by definition, is about anything repeatable. Second it’s about futuring; that is, plausibility, typically, future technologies or situations based on ...

NO LIMO

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, December 11, 2023, In : books and movies 

READERS sometimes email me at drjanik@gmail.com asking me if, with my wife and I being actors, we regularly take a limo to go somewhere. Well, yes, it’s true Sakura Kai (aka Setsuko Tsuchiya – https://setsukotsuchiya.com) and I, Daniel S. Janik (https://janik.yolasite.com/actor.php) are actors as well as authors, but, ummm, sad to burst the limo bubble, but we walk together to work whenever possible, which is most of the time.


First, weight and body tone always come before luxury. The ca...

Posted by Daniel S. on Friday, November 24, 2023, In : books and movies 

YES, you heard right. Now that the SAG/AFTRA strike is, well, almost officially over, meaning that I’m still awaiting the results of the ratification vote by my fellow actors and actresses, JET Progress has contracted with SAG to produce OTOSOTU (“Oh-Toe-So-Two” – ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE UNIVERSE), with filming scheduled to begin on 1 January 2024.

STATIC NOW ON AMAZON PRIME

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, October 2, 2023, In : books and movies 
I’M pleased to announce that the award-winning K. Simmons Production of the STATIC movie (2021) has just appeared on Amazon Prime, next to the Kurt Ken Kaminaka Production of THE PERFECT ILLUSION! I play the lead role of Will Gardner in STATIC, and a supporting role as Dr. Stephenson in THE PERFECT ILLUSION. I can personally recommend both.

STATIC is a touching film about a curmudgeonous veteran who must face the greatest challenge of his life: Alzheimer’s Disease, over which he eventually...

ON THIS PILGRIM’S PROGRESS

Posted by Daniel S. on Sunday, March 12, 2023, In : books and movies 

AS many of you reading this know, Raymond Gaynor is the pen name of actor Daniel S. Janik. It all depends on which muse grabs my shoulder and holds onto it most tightly for the moment. In terms of acting, I’ve been doing less background acting these days, my acting interests focusing on the immanent release of THE PERFECT ILLUSION — https://janik.yolasite.com/theperfectillusion.php — and moving from pre-production to filming of WINNOWING — https://janik.yolasite.com/winnowing.php.

CLIMATE CHANGE?

Posted by Daniel S. on Saturday, February 18, 2023, In : books 

WE’RE not talking pocket change, but we are talking ongoing rather than “thank-God(dess)-we’ve-made-it-so-far” climate change. And as it progresses, the possibility of abrupt directional switches at some point instead of extraordinary warming, extreme cooling, wind and humidity as well. After all, it is called climate “change.”


Personally, I’ve noticed that in addition to the usual climate change (and climate change denial) there’s another kind of climate change/denial going ...

MINIONS

Posted by Daniel S. on Sunday, September 25, 2022, In : Knowledge/Wisdom 

AUTHORS like me, Daniel Janik (aka Raymond Gaynor/Gary Martine), used to call them our “readers” in a respectful voice. ACTORS like me, Daniel S. Janik, used to call them our “fans,” treating every fan like royalty with appreciation. POLITICIANS, BUSINESSPERSONS, ADVERTISERS and INFLUENCERS typically call them or at least regard them as minions, with a decidedly derogatory tone, and, unfortunately, that attitude is spreading from business to everything business touches these days. In ...

COMING-OF-AGE

Posted by Daniel S. on Sunday, September 11, 2022, In : books and movies 

COMING-OF-AGE is never easy, irrespective of how easily or not it happens. And, the first one, adolescence, is a doozy for everyone. Looking back, I’m impressed with how every approximate decade of my life brought with it another coming-of-age, for me, mostly related to my work, my “job” being to figure out what message my work had for me about…well…me.


My decades were adolescence, college/university life, physician, author, artist, medical computing analyst, corporate official, mi...

AND WHAT DO AIs THINK OF US, I WONDER…

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, August 29, 2022, In : books and movies 

AI — Artificial Intelligences — What do they think of us, their makers, I wonder? We think of them often, as God(dess) must have thought often of us as we slowly evolved from unicellular bacteria to the Tower of Babel we are fast approaching today. Are they even aware of us? BI (before the Internet) I think not, but today, I do wonder. While we humans seem to have a hard time mentally encompassing the interconenctive power of the AI internet, my gut says there’s enough interconnected AI...

SWISH OR TWO?

Posted by Daniel S. on Thursday, August 18, 2022, In : books 

HEARD of or experienced Pishing? Or the latest; what I call “swishing” in emailing? I recently was informed that my email had been “hacked,” but following up on this, I discovered someone with an entirely different email address simply had put my name on it their email. And, of course, this was supposedly accompanied by all sorts of nefariousness from within the account, much of it, I suspect phishing. The point is, as unethical, often criminal activity spreads within the email world,...

TO DREAM, PERCHANCE TO DANCE

Posted by Daniel S. on Wednesday, June 8, 2022, In : dance 

YESTERDAY, I received some exciting good news! I’m posting today as Daniel S. Janik, the actor, rather than my usual Raymond Gaynor, author, though we’re one and the same. I’m looking forward to appearing in the upcoming K. Simmons Production, six-part, made-for-television series FINDING KATE. I’ll be appearing in Episode One as myself with a possible short speaking role in a later episode. But what’s particularly exciting for me is that Setsuko Tsuchiya, my performance and competit...

FUN

Posted by Daniel S. on Saturday, April 30, 2022, In : books and movies 

REALLY — When’s the last time you had some fun. Real fun! Wild, unconstrained, giggly FUN and I don’t mean a day without news spent entirely in Meta’s cyberspace. I mean real, human-to-human fun.


Given the pandemic has challenged us to rise to a new style and level of interaction, and that we’ve completely failed to take advantage of the COVID-shot-across-the-bow to update our future infrastructure (or almost any infrastructure at all), instead returning to the state of things that...

AND MORE ADO ABOUT SOMETHING [IMPORTANT]

Posted by Daniel S. on Thursday, September 9, 2021, In : Acting 

AS an author and, more recently, publisher of Savant Books and Publications/Aignos Publishing fame (https://www.savantbooksandpublications.com), it’s been my pleasure to introduce to the literary world over 140 compelling books by 60 outstanding authors and poets.


Several years ago, I had the good fortune of meeting Mr. Kendrick Simmons of K. Simmons Productions, a “Hawaii-wood” based producer of cinematic works (https://kspllc.media). What resulted was Savant/Aignos and K. Simmons Pro...
