Frak, My Geek Is Showing

After getting back from another week long trip, Branson MO with mom, I have a ton of comments, forums and emails to answer. Stuff I never seem to get all the way caught up on. Not to forget all the crap going on in the rest of the world. Yes there is more than my lil world. Things like….

The breakthrough on the male birth control pill, the end of the first fiscal quarter of ’08, IU gets a new head b-ball coach, little kids from Waycross Georgia plotting to kill their teacher, McDonalds adds mochas and Lattes to their menu. So what do I do when I get home? Logon to UrbanDead to check on my Zombie and barg harmanz brahnz (Eat Human Brains).

Then I sat in front of the TV for a BSG marathon. My life rocks! 10 hours a day of non-stop BSG for 5 days and Zombie fun. Yeah, I’m a geek!

Raiding hospitals and malls for fresh meat to feed on. UrbanDead my other addiction. I’m really getting into Zombie games. I’ve joined the Undeadites, a horde of zombies set on destroying Malton. Malton is a HUGE fictional city that has been quarantined due to infection.

“In death, the city stirs. Its borders still locked down after a sudden government quarantine two years ago, Malton’s trapped civilians make their way through the derelict buildings, surviving the changing seasons to rebuild their fragmented society from the rubble upwards. Military cleanup squads patrol the empty streets, stationed in the city for the long haul, while embedded scientific groups continue the experiments that brought them here.

And the dead rise up and thrive, trailing through the ruined streets of the city, milling between buildings and clawing through makeshift barricades and diversions, reclaiming the city as their own.”

So I have dedicated most of this week to watching Battlestar Galactica, chatting about Battlestar Galactica, and visualizing the end of Battlestar Galactica.

Battlestar Galactica kicks your ass! Frakin’ right. Psst… Frak is used on the show to replace fuck. If you don’t know the show at all, take your self to SciFi.com and bone up. Otherwise we can’t be friends. Ok back to my geekdom.

I watched both of the pre-marathon shows BSG Revealed and BSG Phenomenon. I was surprised to see all of the celebrity fans of BSG. Some I knew were fans like Joel McHale from The Soup. But Ian Scott of Anthrax? What the frak? He is devoted fan who even pulled some strings to get a private tour of the set. He even got his pic taken in a Viper. Lucky bastard! I wish I was a famous rocker with a huge… goatee.

With everything that’s been going on in the real world, it has been hard to sit and watch to 10 hrs of BSG goodness. Today was really hard. Former President Bill Clinton came to Bloomington to stump for the Hill-Dog. But I just could pull myself away. After all Lee, one sexy bitch, was about to take command of Pegasus. How could anyone skip out on seeing that? I think the Clinton camp planned it that way. They didn’t want us geeks there asking the tough questions. “Will you support a bill protecting the forests of Endor?”

Plus I’ve been think of entering my own Cylon Creation into SciFi’s contest. I don’t know though. It’s a lot of work and metal fabrication. I’m not sure I have that much time to spend. Nah, I’ll find a way. Plus how cool would that be to have my geekdom aired on the SciFi Channel?

I try getting my mother into BSG. She watched the first season with me and even acted excited when it was about to come on. But she was faking it the whole time. Bitch! But now that it’s ending I’m pushing her to watch all 3 seasons before the Friday premier of the fourth and final season. Yes folks it is almost over. But they have promised it won’t end like Dallas or the Sapranos. There will be a conclusion. Either the fleet finds Earth or the Cylons wipe out humanity for good. No matter what, it’s bound to Frakin’ rock!The one thing I would really like to see in this last season… A queer character! I have yet to see any gay or lesbian members of the fleet or colonies. There are tons of us queer-geeks, please give us something.

I’m glad that it’s coming to an end as are most die hard fans. While we are crazy addicted to the show, we don’t want it to drag out. Let it end on a high note with the gratitude of a loyal and faithful following. Just ask GeekMom. She has a list of all the things she would like to see in the last season. I hope she’ll add a queer character to her list.

All the other stuff will have to come later. Hopefully I’ll get to it all.

  1. Hi BadEvan, thanks for the link! Yes, BSG rocks, and I’m glad we can be friends. :-) I’m sorry to have to remind you that there has been a queer character already on BSG — more than one, actually. Remember Admiral Cain and Gina (one of the #6 Cylons)? They were a couple until Cain found out Gina was a Cylon. Then she threw her in the brig on the Pegasus and had her tortured. Then Gina got her revenge and shot Cain.

    Also, there was a scene with Baltar in bed with #6 and D’anna (does that count?), when he was living on the Cylon ship.

    I was really excited to see that even celebrities love BSG. I was a little bit jealous of Brad Paisley’s BSG shirt, so I ordered one for myself. I hope it gets here by Friday! Yes, I’m a big geek, too!

  2. Hey GeekMom…always ready to give a lil link-love, especially for a fellow geek.

    As far as Admiral Cain and Gina, that was mostly from Razor, so it doesn’t really count. I know I said gay and lesbian …but come on. I’m a big ol’ fag! I wanna see hot guys not tough chicks. Apollo and Helo … in the shower! I need to stop now. hehe.

    So, the scene with #6, D’anna, and Gaius … well see the above “No Lezzies” clause.

    There was and still is some speculation about Geata. There is a great article @ http://www.watchingbsg.com/is-gaeta-gay-and-what-is-in-store-for-the-character-in-season-four/

    I have a bunch of BSG shirts. All designed and silk-screened by yours truly. If you’re a good lil geek maybe I’ll send you one…

  3. Hey, I did not notice the subtitle in that BSG banner up there. My hubby just called from work and told me about it… See it early at noon?! Tempting, but he’s going to be out of town until Sunday, and I can’t watch it without him.

    I’d read something about Gaeta a while back. You can have him, but don’t take Apollo! And what’s with the new photos showing Apollo in a business suit? He’d better get back in his Viper this season. Nobody puts Apollo behind a desk!

  4. Nope! #6 with D’Anna i bed with Baltar doesnt count since many a straight chick has given her man “the show” because it’s one of those male fantasy thingies LOL that’s pseudo lezzie at best. I hope you get your wish, Evan! I too wouldnt mind seeing Apollo and Helo in the shower 😉

    Thanks for the comment, btw! I’m not ready to guess how the end might turn out … I’m stoked about the show tomorrow night.

    enjoy!

  5. I have actually never seen a whole BSG episode in my entire life 😛

    But oh, I digg the banner up there 😉

    Have you read that cool book.. what’s it called… The Zombie Survival Guide? It’s pretty neat 😉

  6. @Jamie so, you’ll be watching on the TV and skip the special early airing at noon on SciFi’s website? So, far I don’t know anyone that’s going to watch it online. I would rather watch it on my big screen over my laptop.

    @Malin yeah, I’ve got Max Brooks other book ‘World War Z’. They were gifts from my mommy. She supports my strange zombie addiction.

  7. I just finished up my three-season marathon this past weekend. Gods, I love that show!

    Hope you get your queer character! So say we all.

  8. Thanks for the shout out, and the link! Enjoyed your post, and I know you are not the only person who is rooting for that Tahmoh & Jamie shower scene. Somehow I don’t think that is what will happen, but you and legions of scifi guys can still dare to dream. Now I can see something happening with Baltar and one of the male members of his cult … there were a few lurking around in the background in “He That Believeth in Me,” and one can only assume their motivations for being there are just as sexual as their female counterparts.

  9. We all know the original BSG was better.
