I should get up off my arse and go pee. So America has a new president. Congrats all. Wish we could get a new government. I have totally no confidence in the present load of TDs and ministers. But this is not a political blog, so that’s enough of that. BSG has just started its […]
I’m not sure what to make of this: Via Damien Mulley On one hand the first two Terminator films were great, the third was a bit pants, and too self-referential and mocking. On one hand it has Summer Glau in it, and who doesn’t love Summer?, but on the other, it has Fievel Mousekewitz in […]
It is Friday today. Aren’t you glad? First of all, especially for the In Fact, Ah peoples we bring you Dinosaurs and their Biscuits. How cool is that? And second of all, via Jayne’s World comes this vidjo and song, all about why new BSG is better than old BSG
Cause then I could’ve just used that as my title. I suppose I could have typed in 3-3-3-3-3-3-3—2—-0—–3-3-2-3-2–0—–7–0——————| b:——————-3—3—————–3————————| g:——————————————————————| d:——————————————————————| a:——————————————————————| E:——————————————————————| e:3-3–2—-0—-3-3-2-3-2–0—–0—3-2-0-3-2-0-3-2-0-3-2-0–3-2-3–5—-7| b:——–3—3—————-3—————————————-3—| g:————————————————————————–| d:————————————————————————–| a:————————————————————————–| E:————————————————————————–| But to be honest, if I hadn’t found that here I wouldn’t have a clue what it meant :) Anyways, the reason for the Macgyver mentions, […]
During the final ad break of last night’s BSG a promo for Sky’s 10 o’clock news came on. It had one headline. Do you know what that was? The main news story was that Tom Cruise was going to… shock horror, a film premiere. And not just any premiÃ¨re, but one for Mission Impossible III, […]
Slacking off am I? I’ll give you slacking off I’ll make your eyes weep from reading so much. So I will. Or maybe not. I was listening to the radio on my way home from work yesterday, and I heard a comment that surprised me. Seems that an interrogation with An Gardaí is nothing like […]
“There’s a reason you separate military and the police. One fights the enemies of the state, the other serves and protects the people. When the military becomes both, then the enemies of the state tend to become the people.”
I caught the mini-series when it showed on SkyOne last year, but missed a few of episodes of the series itself, and because the storyline is so involved I didn’t really make and effort to watch the others in the series. But the dvd caught my eye, and I had quite liked the mini-series, so I picked it up.
Starting where the mini-series left off, so if you haven’t seen those you might be a little lost, Battlestar Galactica is very different from the original series of the 70’s, and is all the better for it. BSG has many of sci-fi’s big issues. It has the possible end of humanity, starships, battles in space, robots, what makes a human, it even brings up faith vs. reason.
Well, I’m back. Bit later than I thought, but I stayed an extra day because I got a bit of a cold and didn’t want to be on the train with a runny nose and watery eyes. You may remember that I was cheering for Galway when they played against Kilkenny, well, Sunday was the […]
Well I said yesterday that I was heading off to Sligo today. Meant to catch the lunch time train. Even got up in time and everything, but then I just couldn’t be arsed to go. So instead I watched some Battlestar Galactica. Just bought the series on Thursday, and it is quite good. I watched […]
