While browsing Sci-Fi.Com
today I noticed that Jurassic Park is going to be on Saturday, April
30th at 6/5C. It's after Sci-Fi Picture's failed Raptor
Island movie that's on at 4/3C. So check your local cable or your
satellite provider's listings for the channel.

Re-designed the News Archive section to be
easier to browse through. It needed a professional organized type of
look. After a certain amount of time stories will be sorted there in
descending order from the last news post to the first news post for
that period of time.

Due to the lack of JP News I decided to introduce Paleontology Rundown,
a report basically informing everybody about recent discoveries in Vertebrate
Paleontology and limited to finds on dinosaurs.
According to Yahoo!
News scientists have found a T.rex Relative that lived in Prehistoric
Georgia. This dinosaur, named Appalachiosaurus montgomeriensis
after the Appalachian Mountains in Montgomery county was 25-foot long
and lived 10 million years before Tyrannosaurus rex. Appalachiosaurus
had a more primitive and narrower snout than it's large and powerful
descendent. Allegedly they had been finding fossil teeth and claws from
this animal for years, but now they found an excellently preserved specimen.

A ground breaking discovery in what has become the dinosaur fossil capital
of the world, Southern China, has Paleontologists drooling with excitement.
Two fossilised eggs were found inside of a dinosaur giving clue to its
reproductive habits and also showing a lot of similarities between birds
and reptiles. To view the article you can go here.

Stan Winston talks JPIV! That's right Dark
Horizons has an article with Stan Winston talking about JPIV.
definitely going ahead. There will be a Jurassic Park IV. We're all
very excited at the prospect of working together again, because doing
a Jurassic movie is like a big family reunion. Everyone pretty much
knows everyone else, so it's a lot of fun. I also enjoy the challenge
of once again raising the bar and bringing the world something extraordinary.
Admittedly things have somewhat slowed on the development of the film,
as Steven [Spielberg] wasn't very enthused with the first couple of
screenplay drafts. I think he felt neither of them balanced the science
and adventure elements effectively. It's a tough compromise to reach,
as too much science will make the movie too talky, but too much adventure
will make it seem hollow. So we're sort of on hold at the moment,
just waiting for the written word to be in place, and then it's full
steam ahead, baby!"
that means Jurassic Park IV is on hold for now until they find the right
script and I hope they do. This is a really good sign as it might mean
we'll get a quality sequel. Go here

Updated the costuming section with a shot
of the Jurassic Park ID Card prop I've been working on. Also,
know if anyone noticed but they found some Tyrannosaurus Rex soft tissue
inside the bone and it's quite a significant paleontological find, you
can view the article here.
The picture I posted with this is directly from the article and it shows
off the mineralization that transpired in this find when the animal
died. What's interesting, at least to me, is that they put the bone
and a sample of the soft tissues and saw blood cells basically still
moving around and "alive". I kind of hope someone gets the idea to clone
this, but I doubt it will happen because everybody's seen Jurassic
Park. This is an extraordinary find and everybody who's interested
in dinosaurs should read the article and post your thoughts on our Message
