Razor/old school cylon toys (and a surprise) unveiled

Diamond Select Toys & Collectibles has new images of their up-and-coming Battlestar Galactica  figures online, including the trio from “Razor” pictured above (click image for hi-res).  Young Adama & Kendra Shaw have their own listings as seperate pieces, but it looks like the re-imagined old school Cylon Centurion will only be available in the three-figure set (all are slated for an 8/15 release).  Another shot of the Cylon and a surprise product are only a click away…

earthquake!

My heart goes out to all those in Southern California today who may have had toiletries or nick nacks fall off a low shelf.  The massively unremarkable earthquake had absolutely no effect on Battlestar Galactica.  Click ahead for a video of a bunch of morons doing absolutely the wrong thing in a quake…

movie review: Dark Knight 1 & 2

So I saw the new Batman movies last week (how’s that for timely posting?).  For the most part, they live up to the hype, but naturally I have a few bones to pick.  My friends tell me I manage to find fault with everything, and J-rod (yes that’s a real person) thinks I get some sort of perverse pleasure out of it.  He might have a point, perhaps life would be better if my reaction to everything was “wow, that was neat!” Actually, I saw Thank You For Smoking  over the weekend (starring Dark Knight’s  Aaron Eckhart) and thought it was pretty much a perfect movie, so to my dear friends: bite me.   I’ll stop finding faults in movies when Hollywood stops copiously providing them!  Anyway, on to what I what I thought of the two new Batman movies…

little gold statues

Yes, it’s that time of year again – school’s out, burgers are on the grill and everyone gathers around at poolisde as the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announces the finalists for the Prime Time Emmy Awards!  Naturally, everyone skips to the Special Visual Effects nominees, since that’s where all our favorite shows reside.  Duking it out this year for the little gold statue will be…

are conventions doomed?

Today I heard about a fan-run convention that announced it was cancelling the event and no longer taking pre-orders; at least they closed up shop in advance of the con – about a month ago, another event shut down during the first day of the actual programming, leaving a whole bunch of people (and guests) high and dry.  So what gives?  Are sci-fi conventions fading away?  I have a few theories about what’s been going on, and the answers may shock you… *

the Sci-Fi Dance Mix

Every holiday season, I like to dust off the decks, dig into the Mojoplex archives and create a themed mix CD for my closest friends. It was only a few short years ago that I had spent nearly six months and my entire forture in search of the raw materials to create an epic that no DJ had dared to attempt: an entire mix of sci-fi dance music.

eye of jupiter nachos

This is the most awesome thing I’ve seen since Bottlestar Galactica.  It’s from the Flickr album of some cat called Trioculus and if you click here you can see the full snack bar from one of his BSG viewing parties (he’s also got an algae dip).  Gods, I love this guy.  If any of you think you can beat the Eye of Jupiter Nachos  for sheer originality, send your own clever Galactica/food creations to BSGFood@aol.com and we’ll post them here.  I guess we need a prize… hmmm… how about this: the winner will get an extremely rare, custom made, not-available-anywhere “Cylon Raiders” T-shirt (I can’t publish a picture of it because it’s based on a copyrighted design, but trust me – it’s frakking cool).   Sound good?  Well, what are you waiting for?  Get cooking!
