Don’t forget you still have until the air date of Season 4's tenth episode on June 13, to submit an entry for Sci Fi Channel’s MAKE A CYLON contest. [Cylon coffee pot via MAKE blog.]
There is a short-but-potentially-massive BSG spoiler buried in this Ask Ausiello column. I read it, and I am not sorry.
Sci Fi Observer listened to PopCandy's recent David Eick interview, and notes his statement about the possibility of a BSG movie in the future. I've been thinking about this again after hearing Mark Stern’s comments at the BSG panel in NY Comic Con last month. Stern indicated that a film would happen only if the show's producers (I assume he means David Eick and Ron Moore) feel the reimagined BSG ‘verse could work in a 2-hour feature format. As many of you may recall, Moore recently stated he does not think it can translate well. No one mentions Glen Larson’s reticence to release the film rights anymore...which makes me wonder if that is still an issue.
Lucy Lawless fans are abuzz about the fun, sexy concerts she gave this past weekend in London during a Xena con. We BSG fans will appreciate her "standard issue" BSG...er...bikini bottom. It had a BSG insignia on the front, and "FRAK ME" on the back. In hot pink, no less. Seriously -- where can I get one of those?! (HT to Flawless Diva)
Sci Fi Scanner has details on what could have been a very entrancing BSG/Terminator mashup fanfiction comic book. But failed.
The Chief’s Deck links to the trailer for a gruesome new indie film starring Aaron Douglas, BLOOD: A BUTCHER’S TALE.
Bamber News noticed that Jamie Bamber is listed as a member of the cast in the upcoming feature film MINEVILLE.
TV Week discusses how television networks are changing their ways in the new on-demand world. Sci-Fi Channel and its audience "rich in tech-saavy early-adopters" is discussed.
The NBCU/iTunes deal is still dead due to disagreement over pricing structure...meanwhile, Microsoft has announced that it will start selling various NBCU TV shows, including BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, for its Zune player. For $1.99 each.
Andrew Stanton (WALL-E, FINDING NEMO) really likes BSG and THE WIRE. Good to know. OT: the clips of WALL-E I saw at NY Comic Con were stunning, the film looks terrific. Although seeing the Earth like that, as a giant garbage dump, was a tad depressing.
A DIYgeek named Bazooka Jo posted instructions on making some very cool cylon origami that would certainly impress Gaff and his unicorn. (HT MAKE blog.)
Geekadelphia is co-hosting a big geeked-out BSG marathon party in Philadephia this weekend. There will be gaming...on LAN networks.
This is something I was impressed to find: David Edelstein, one of my favorite film critics, gushing over BSG? My gods...he even refers to himself as a fanboy. Hee hee.
It never gets tired, reading about new converts who have realized how awesome BSG is. Especially when they are film geeks. And/or Harvard Crimson writers.
According to SF Universe, there will be a BSG board game released by Fantasy Flight Games this fall.
Tim Goodman at the San Francisco Chronicle has asked his readers to participate in a TV Show Face-Off between BATTLESTAR GALACTICA and LOST. Although the shows do have a lot in common, I really cannot see how LOST’s Twilight Zone-esque rollercoaster-shock-a-minute puzzlejinks can compete with BSG’s more profound, thoughful, feminist, allegorical aspects. But hey – that’s just one grrl’s opinion. Go on over there if you’re itching for battle…and be nice, willya?
