silver it is

as long as the stock market does not tank again, I am thinking fall 2010 or spring 2011, european pick-up. silver looks the best with the new model's headlamp details. Or meteor gray, but going back to silver would be a nice throwback to my '97 A4.

BSG: the end

well it's all over. It was quite bleak this season, it probably dragged on for a bit too long after they found the remnants of earth, but the battle to rescue Hera was spectacular, and Baltar finally stepped up to the plate and redeemed himself. My theory was that everyone is a cylon and they are playing into an eternal cycle of death and rebirth. There is an cycle and the show left it in the air as to whether it would continue that way. Are they all cylons? I would say yes. Who is to say when the cycle really started? With the 12 colonies? Before then? Where did Kara return to? hmm..

someone to watch over me

caught up to last Friday's BSG episode. It was slow going at first but really wound up as a doozy of an episode. Starbuck is visiting by the ghost of her father... Ellen Tigh is realizing she is not quite the god she thought she was. Boomer is evil and Chief finally realizes it. Starbuck and Baltar are going to have all the answers at the end. Everyone is a Cylon. I'm sticking with that theory.

BSG almost over..

BSG is almost over, and I think they have been dragging out the ending for too long. I was into the bleakness and despair of the characters as they realized they were all fucked, but how many episodes do I have to see of people drinking themselves into oblivion? The revelations have been as I expected -- the "final 5" are from Earth and they come from cylons who pretty much forgot they were cylons to begin with. I still believe that everyone is a frakkin' cylon though. Starbuck realizes this -- only she and a #2 are privy to the secret that she has been resurrected. I am disappointed with Baltar's treatment, it is almost as if they forgot about him the past half season and now they are dusting him off for a part in the finale. He is definitely special and seems to be aware of something that Ellen is not.


once again, have to look back 17 years for good music.
