All along the frakking watchtower, so say we all!  
++ I'm listening to the BSG S4 soundtrack right now and, um, I may or may not be silently weeping at particular tracks. Everything is so poignant and powerful, with each track having the same amount of emotional impact as though you're reliving the scenes all over again, is precisely why Bear McCreary is a composing mastermind. He really has enjoyed working on the music of BSG, you can tell by just how much passion he places in many of the pieces. Even with the hauntingly beautiful opening track, "Gaeta's Lament" (that everyone should listen to, I am not kidding) which has Alessandro Juliani singing, just sets the tone of the angst and the depression and bittersweet atmosphere of the season/series perfectly. Especially when it becomes a dramatic crescendo towards the end, pulling at your heartstrings. Personally, aside from the many things I loved about the show, the music is the most memorable to me and really completes the entire series.

++ Despite the fact that the BSG actors were not nominated for any nominations whatsoever, the worst and coldest snub ever, Edwards James Olmos has guaranteed possible more telemovies in the future. All I'm gonna say is DON'T BE MESSING WITH US EDDIE! THIS IS MAKING ME SQUEEFUL JUST HAVING THE GUARANTEE COMMENT FROM YOU! :D

++ Does anyone remember that MTV series Fear? I've been watching some episodes on YouTube, and it's funny because there are times when you totally tell it's completely scripted and fake. It was supposed to have just five random contestants proving a certain location is haunted, but it was more scare tactics instead of being investigators like Ghost Hunters. It was more like having a dare contest to see if you can survive the night inside a spooky house in order to win five thousand dollars, complete with handheld cameras and everything. But although it was fake I do think that being legitimately scared wasn't, because even though these people knew what they were signing onto with MTV being alone at night with just a camera inside a dark place can be pretty intense, your mind starts messing with you and you can get pretty creeped out.

I just remember the very first episode that was shown where that one dude had to pull the sheet off of a chair or whatever as his dare, after being informed of some angry spirit in that room or something like that, and just as he did he ran away screaming like a little girl! Oh man, good times.

++ So. Comic Con's already in session, I've been reading reports from some of the panels so far. The one I'm leaning towards is the Supernatural one. Only because I want to know if they're going to show the gag reel for season four and if Misha starts doing random things like he always does. Also, is there actually a Heroes panel this year? I thought they mentioned some months ago there wasn't going to be one.
Current Mood: geeky
Current Music: Bear McCreary - Kara Remembers

I know just what you mean! I'm addicted to this soundtrack right now. The music is such an huge component of BSG, and it just got better and better.

2. Eddie guaranteed? *flails* Okay, for all I know it's gonna be about another ship I don't care about like "Razor" but STILL. I'M FREAKING OUT. And crossing my fingers for Six to keep being in all of them. :D

3. Don't hold me to this because I don't even watch "Heroes" anymore, but I could swear I read in Entertainment Weekly that they will have a panel, just in a smaller room than previous years.

1. I am so loving the soundtrack, and I completely agree it had gotten better as the series progressed. You can't help but having it grasp you the way it does, which is the magic of Bear and the way he composes. Just, absolutely beautiful. Will be having this on repeat for the next few days now. ♥


3. Well, Heroes is pretty much dead to me so I don't really care that much, but I was a bit puzzled when I heard they weren't having one but then announcements about the show's own panel. It makes sense that they would have it smaller though, but I still maintain that this will probably be the last season for them. Have you heard what they're going to be doing to Claire?

No, what? *braces self* Hooking her up with Sylar?
Renéerogueslayer452 on July 25th, 2009 09:20 pm (UTC)
They're turning her into a lesbian, or at least having that experience with her new roommate in college.
Nicole Anell: otp adorablenicole_anell on July 27th, 2009 11:20 am (UTC)



(Haven't they been trying to do this for a while? I remember spoilers as early as season two where they kept saying she'd have a lesbian friend. I guess they were waiting for her character to be 'older'.)
Renéerogueslayer452 on July 27th, 2009 11:55 am (UTC)
Well, they did try with the ambiguous gay friend in season one (Zach, remember him? He was her best friend since she trusted him with her secret only to be forgotten immediately after season one ended hell even before that, she never got a chance to say goodbye), but there was such a huge fuss about it they dropped it. And yeah, I remember those rumors about one of her classmates being a lesbian or bisexual in high school. I'm guessing they backed out of that too.

Right now it seems all too cliche, that whole "college is about experimentation" kind of thing. And the description of them also seems stereotypical (pretty peppy blonde cheerleader and the girl obsessed with "death and the show CSI" as they described the roommate. Yeah. Good going show. *rolls eyes*

Zach, remember him?
John Connor! Of course. NOT THAT ANYONE ELSE DOES. I actually came into "Heroes" in the middle of season one and the Claire/Zach friendship was something I really liked. (And the whole backtracking over him being gay annoyed me so much!) It's like looking back at a totally different show now.
Renéerogueslayer452 on July 27th, 2009 10:07 pm (UTC)
It was one of my biggest peeves when they just completely forget a character that made a huge impact on another character. In S2 Claire never mentioned Zach and even went into this whole thing of "being alone" speech to West about her secret. And that totally pissed me off, 'cause I'm like WHAT ABOUT ZACH, YOUR FRIEND BACK IN TEXAS THE ONE YOU WERE SO SAD ABOUT HIS MEMORIES BEING ERASED AND HAD TO CONFIDE WITH HIM AGAIN?!

I was like fail show, major fail.

Bear McCreary squee!

EJO squee!

You might be spoiled for SPN Season Five, though.
Renéerogueslayer452 on July 25th, 2009 10:58 am (UTC)
I love all the BSG squee. I feel like we've been deprived from it after the finale.

You might be spoiled for SPN Season Five, though.

That is why I'm waiting for despoilered reports to be written up by those who attend the panel. It'll be a wait, but it's worth waiting for just to hear the experience without the spoilery bits.

Oh, I thought "leaning towards" meant "leaning towards going to". Sorry.

I got the soundtrack, but I've only listened to a few tracks and unpopular opinion is about to be unpopular. I was underwhelmed. Maybe it's the first part of the CD, but something felt off. I don't know why.
Renée: Six. It's good to be a Cylon.rogueslayer452 on July 25th, 2009 09:23 pm (UTC)
Awww, that's too bad. Because I really feel like this is Bear's best work to date, especially for BSG.
rawthorne on July 26th, 2009 12:56 am (UTC)
Forget I said anything. Turns out listening to anything when pissed off/tired will result in powerful hate.
Renéerogueslayer452 on July 26th, 2009 03:59 am (UTC)
I hope you're okay now, bb.

Hee. ;D It's absolutely amazing, the soundtrack. Not only is it two discs but the tracks themselves are more powerful than how they appeared in the show, if that's even possible. Gotta love Bear McCreary. ♥
