operation: operation

operation1

In about 6 hours I’ll be on the way to the hospital for my first-ever game of real-life Operation!  It’s minor surgery to fix my twisted back (loyal Darth Mojo readers will remember my car accident from a few months back) and I’m assured it’s all very routine, but of course the whole thing is scaring the felgercarb out of me; what if my nose suddenly buzzes and glows red?   Continue reading ‘operation: operation’

my god, it full of (the wrong) stars!

bsg-stars

 

A few days ago, in the comments section, I revealed that the CGI stars as seen in that backgrounds of Battlestar Galactica  were, for the most part, random.  They are an accurate representation of what stars look like from Earth, but they were randomly placed.  This greatly shocked and disappointed a small legion of fans who had been analyzing these backgrounds for clues; by screen-capturing images of the stars and overlaying constellations, they had been hoping to pinpoint the exact location of The Fleet and how close they were to Earth.  The revelation that all their time had essentially been wasted because the visual effects team hadn’t actually planted any clues left them very cross indeed…

NSFW

Welcome to another edition of NSFW (that’s No Sci-Fi Wednesdays  for the uninitiated), my attempt at bringing you a weekly look at something that has nothing to do with spaceship (click here to see the inaugural post).  This week we have a picture of a pigeon I took at Union Station a few years ago.  Isn’t it lovely?  You can even click it for a larger version.  This post also marks a new milestone – it’s short.  Continue reading ‘NSFW’

what did YOU think of the BSG finale?

spoiler_alert

I asked for comments in my previous post, but people have been holding back for fear of spoiling the show for folks in third world countries who may not see the finale for a while.  In that case, I am creating THIS post as an invitation – and a warning – to let the flood gates open and tell us what you really  think in as much detail as you like.  So take the kid gloves off, roll up your sleeves and spill the beans.  No holds barred!  I’ll even temporarily  switch off the comment approvals, so your thoughts will be shared with the world  immediately… so let’s hear it!  Click through, scroll down to the comments section and give us your review (I trust the above image will satisfy those who bitch about not being given fair warning when spoilers are ahead).

Throughout the comments section I will post my own thoughts and answer your questions as best I can!

fat lady clears throat, fans hold breath

Well folks, it’s almost time – in a few short hours, the three-hour series finale of Battlestar Galactica  will rock the airwaves and we’ll all see how the saga wraps up.  Believe it or not, even *I* have avoided spoilers!  Yes, I essentially know what happens, but I purposely avoided reading the entire script or watching complete rough cuts so I might have at least a few surprises in store.  We’ve waited more than thirty years to see what sort of finish line the Galactica crosses and what fate has in store for Starbuck & Apollo… my gut tells me people will love the final episode, but please – after it’s all over, take a trip to my comments section and voice your opinion.  I think we’re all going to need to talk about it!  Above is a stirring image of a Viper I created recently, feel free to stare at it and cry for as long as you need to…
