Battlestar Galactica Hosted At The UN

This is so cool!  Posted on Slashdot today… Full Link Here

TheDopp writes “The United Nations hosted the cast and crew of Battlestar Galactica Tuesday evening in New York. Clips of the show were shown as discussion points during the event, touching on the morality of Suicide Bombers in war, Abortion and the use of torture on enemies of the state. At one point during the event an attendee mentions ‘the “Old Man” launched into a passionate speech about casting off the idea of race as a cultural determinant, and said we were one race, the human race. His voice echoed throughout the chamber growing louder until — I kid you not — he was yelling, “So Say We All,” and the crowd answered right back. Hell, even I yelled it, I was in the fraking United Nations with Adama, the gods themselves could not have stopped this moment.’ The full video of the event is located on the UN website.”

Battlestar Galactica Season Finale

This Friday is the season finale of Battlestar Galactic and in a two hour episode we are promised the answers to the beginning of eternity for humanity.    We all know that all of this has happened before and all of this will happen again…so say we all.  After 5 years of sitting on the edge of our seats from season to season and living with great impatience between seasons, we are now supposedly going to know the truth to everything.

I must say this season has been pretty good as the writers turned things back to a dark and dismal feeling of hopelessness for all of human-kind.  I especially thought they did a great job in the episodes around the mutiny and how we really felt any sense of morale slipping through the cracks.

Once this season is over, I will once again, as I always do at the end of a BSG season, need to watch from beginning to end.  It has been a great five years of the most fracking amazing story I have ever followed on television.

Harold and Kumar Poem

I ran across this the other day.  I am not a big fan of this movie, but I think this poem is awesome.

I’m sure that I will always be
A lonely number like root three

The three is all that’s good and right,
Why must my three keep out of sight
Beneath the vicious square root sign,
I wish instead I were a nine

For nine could thwart this evil trick,
with just some quick arithmetic

I know I’ll never see the sun, as 1.7321
Such is my reality, a sad irrationality

When hark! What is this I see,
Another square root of a three

As quietly co-waltzing by,
Together now we multiply
To form a number we prefer,
Rejoicing as an integer

We break free from our mortal bonds
With the wave of magic wands

Our square root signs become unglued
Your love for me has been renewed

-David Feinberg

Where is Hera?

Does anybody know where Hera is? We haven’t seen her for a while. Athena and Helo are on the the Demitrius with Starbuck, and Hera was brought back to Galactica with the help of the good 6 back in season 3, so where is she now? Technically there are now two half-breeds aboard Galactica. Speaking of which, bummer about Callie.

There are way too many days between Fridays during BSG season.
