Here are some photos of myself and Katee Sackhoff and my sister and Katee Sackhoff from Armageddon 2011. Don’t I look suitably awestruck?!

I saw these AGES ago on the wall of someone I knew. I fell in love instantly. Not only are they sci-fi, but Battlestar Galactica to boot and they’re arty. Which allows me to combine my two loves, well two of the many. Anyway, I have the poster below on my wall, a gift from the aforementioned person, but being the geek i am, I need the whole set. You can buy them here. They have so many awesome things on this site, perfect for the classy sci-fi geek in your life. The posters are clever, great quality and I believe true to the look of the show. I love the corner detail, great shout out to the show. The Firefly Blue Sun travel posters are epic too.
So I think these may be my birthday present to myself this year. Then I have to get them framed, but just think how pretty they will look on my walls. Oooh I just spied the BSG dog tags! Uhoh . . . .

Went to Armageddon this weekend and it was AMAZING. I learned a long time ago to put up with being teased for being a sci-fi geek. I love it and I’m proud to be called one. Sci-fi geek is just another term for intelligent, dedicated, fantastic, awesome people who care about great shows and movies.

I attended because the awe inspiring Katee Sackhoff came.
It was too awesome for words, well not really, but i’m still working on that blog post ;). Will post photos etc soon. But here is a taster of me looking suitably fangirlish. Yes I went and had a squee after this photo.

Kara Remembers

2 11 2009

I’m a huge scifi geek/nerd, take your pick. And one of my top shows is Battlestar Galactica (the re-imagined one). Now if you don’t watch this show you should and if you have and don’t like it, then you didn’t watch enough. Anyway I’m not going to give a whole plot synopsis to explain today’s post, so if you want to know more go and use the wonders of the internet. The focus of today’s post is on a piece of music used in BSG. It’s called “Kara Remembers” – or the Final Four Theme. In the 3rd season Bear McCreary did a re-imagined, kick arse version of “All Along the Watchtower.” This piece is the next step along from that. It related to the discovery of the Cylons and Kara (played by Katee Sackhoff) – I won’t go into more detail than that. So this piece of music is utterly fantastic. Every time I listen to it, I get chills. It’s frakkin’ awesome. At the Grand performance Series in Los Angeles, they did a performance of “Kara Remembers” and “All Along the Watchtower.” For the part from the show when Kara plays the piece, Katee Sackhoff came on stage and played her part with Bear McCreary. It’s one of the best things I’ve ever watched on you tube. I know that I had a fan girl squee too, but just the fact of how brilliant the music sounds and what a genius Bear McCreary is. So for your viewing pleasure, have a look at the video of the live performance and also the actual soundtrack version.
