BSG Ship

Incredible show. Incredible music.

Francis, a fellow Browncoat, just reminded me about some of the most intensely beautiful and heart-rending scenes in Battlestar Galactica (yup, BSG fandom is spreading like wildfire among Firefly fans).

Bear McCreary's site has a slew of video clips from Battlestar Galactica, showpiecing his compositions.

The "Passacaglia" clip is one of the emotionally most difficult parts of BSG for me to watch. Especially the Boomer parts of it. It is an amazingly powerful piece of work. It's like watching "Out of Gas". Painful, beautiful and an intensely rewarding experience. The music is a huge part of that.

If you have not seen all of BSG season 1 yet, I do not recommend watching those scenes, as they are definitely spoilerish.

Gorram' morons!

The idiots at Zazzle have decided to wreak havoc on the products that lexigeek designed and created for Black Market Beagles. They apparently don't understand the concept of parody not being a copyright infringement, as I understand it.

The most infuriating thing about this is that they are policing things so strictly when the copyright holders don't mind fan art stuff as long as it isn't shoved in their faces. Heck, there's well-publicised sites selling t-shirts which include stuff which is far closer to (or actually is) infringing, and the copyright holders aren't complaining one bit.

SLiTHER trailer. You saw it here first! Or, um, something.

A friend/colleague of mine, bizzy_, created a trailer for SLiTHER, for their Slug It Out contest!

It's a pretty cool trailer, IMHO!

SLiTHER is Nathan Fillion's new movie, coming soon to a theatre near you.

I thought it looked really ... crap... but I've been told it's really good by someone who I would tend to believe, so, well, maybe I will have to see it. :)
