Quite a send off.

ProgGrrl's favorite things about going to the BSG cast and crew screening of 413, last night in Los Angeles:

  • I was there. How the frak did that happen? And I got to hang out with this terrific blogger, extra double plus good.
  • Ron Moore and Bradley Thompson praising the entire cast and crew effusively on stage before the screening.
  • A SciFi exec onstage, saying "they're feeling it" for an Emmy this year. Cross your fingers.
  • Bear and Brendan McCreary performing All Along The Watchtower live onstage with a guitar and an accordion.
  • Finally seeing some BSG eps on The Big Screen. The detail. The intensity. Wow.
  • The reaction of the audience to any scene starring Michael Hogan's Incredible Acting Eye. FTW!
  • The reaction of the audience to any of Tory's scenes (lots of boos and hisses, LOL).
  • Knowing, at the end, that we may be seeing a lot more of a certain somebody on the show now. I hope.
  • Meeting Paula Malcomson and Esai Morales and telling them how happy I am about Caprica moving forward. GO TEAM!
  • Leaving the afterparty...feeling like a fox drifting, drifting along in the river...on a strong current...






ProgGrrl's favorite things about the auction today in Pasadena (WHICH YOU SHOULD ALL GO CHECK OUT ON SUNDAY, ADMISSION IS FREE):
  • Standing two feet away from all those memorable props. Getting up close with the CIC set pieces to see how detailed (and beat to hell) they actually are. TV magic at its finest.
  • Finally meeting Joe from the wondrous Battlestar Wiki...and Steve from the very cool site FuturePast... two of the folks that have been working really hard on this auction for months.
  • Sitting in the frakkin' raptor! (More on that soon.)

Dude, we so need photos! :)

I am insanely jealous, as you can probably imagine. I kind of hate you right now.

ProgGrrl said...

I debated whether or not to post all this, really, cuz I new *I* would hate me. But I also figured, after the hate subsides, you'd enjoy hearing about it.

Was I right?

;)

People actually booed during the show. What kind of poor behavior is that? I hate it when people make noise in the cinema. For a dialogue intensive show like BSG, that must make it hard to understand what's going on. What silly behavior in front of BSG's creative talent!

I love who the 5th is!

ProgGrrl said...

Booed? Where? At the Pasadena party? There wasn't any booing at the screening I went to.

Which cast members were there?

ProgGrrl said...

I saw Michael Trucco, Mark Sheppard, Tahmoh Penikett, Kate Vernon, Michael Hogan, and the folks from Caprica, Esai Morales & Paula Malcomson. But this was a very low key affair and others may have been there too. Moore, Eick and the entire writing staff were there, Bear and many of his regular players, and a lot of the rest of the crew in many departments.

yes, we're all very jealous and yes, it's great to hear about it right away. you deserve it and shouldn't feel bad about it. after all, the more informed you are, the more informed we are.

Michael Hogan's Incredible Acting Eye should open for Kara Thrace and Her Special Destiny. :)

All very awesome indeed. Thanks for posting the All Along The Watchtower vid as well.

Oh, totally.... I don't *reeaally* hate you for it. :) I love hearing about this stuff! And I fully expect photos of you at the event. *whip crack*

Or were you joking?

ProgGrrl said...

Oh right...actually it was pretty funny. That booing. There'd be a boo/hiss...then a giggle...etc.

sneakers shoes She continued,
"Why...? Don't you need someone to pose as your girlfriend this year?" Then he answered,

"No, there is no need for that anymore......"
Before he can continue, he was interrupted, discount

"Oh yes! Must have found a girlfriend! nike shox r4 You haven't been searching for one for

the past years, right?" The man looked up, as if he has struck gold, his face beamed and

looked directly at the drunken girl. tn dollarHe

replied, "Yes......you are right! I haven't been looking for anyone for the past years."
With that, the man darted across the floor and out the door, cheap nike shoesleaving the lady in much

bewilderment. He finally realized that he has already found his dream girl, and she

was.....the Vancouver girl all along! The drunken lady has said something that awoken

him.
All along he has found his girl.nike tennis shoes

That was why he did not bother to look further when he realized she was not coming back.

It was not any specific girl he was seeking! cheap

nike shox
It was perfection that he wanted, and yes.....perfection!!
Relationship is something both parties should work on. Realizing that he had let away

someone so important in his life, he decided to call her immediately. His whole mind was

flooded with fear.free shipping shoes He was

afraid that she might have found someone new or no longer had the same feelings

anymore..... For once, he felt the fear of losing someone.
As it was Christmas eve, the line was quite hard to get through, especially an overseas

call. He tried again and again, never giving up. Finally, he got through......precisely

at 1200 midnight. He confessed his love for her and the girl was moved to tears. nike shoes It seemed that she never got over him!

Even after so long, she was still waiting for him, never giving up.
He was so excited to meet her and to begin his new chapter of their lives. He decided to

fly to Vancouver to join her. It was the happiest time of their lives! nike discount shoes But their happy time was short-

She had a head-on car collision with a drunken driver. nike shox shoes She passed away after 6 hours in a

at her! How cruel he cursed! How he damned the Gods...!!nike free shoes How he hated himself....for taking so

long to realize his mistake!! That was in 1996.

Treasure what you have...
Time is too slow for those who wait;
Too swift for those who fear;
Too long for those who grief;
Too short for those who rejoice;
But for those who love...
Time is Eternity.
For all you out there with someone special in your heart, cherish that person, cherish

every moment that you spend together that special someone, for in life, anything can

happen anytime. buy shoes onlineYou may

painfully regret, only to realise that it is too late.
