Ok, I'm not always up to date with the latest viral craze, but apparently Diesel has this new video that's sweeping the ol' Interweb. It's clever, I must admit, and I can't help but marvel at the absurdity of straight porn. Especially straight porn from the 70s. But straight porn in general. Yeah. So watch for yourself.

I Can't Believe It's Not Palin!

For those of you who watched Sarah Palin's disastrous interview with Katie Couric and just can't get enough of Palin's garbled nonsense, there's hope! A new website will generate Palin-speak for you on the fly. A sample:

Q: What is the role of the US in Iraq and Afghanistan?

A: Afghanistan will lead to war and it doesn't have to lead, as I said, to a position like we are today with so much collapse on Wall Street. That's to blame. And that is what America and American troops are providing in his country. But no, the Pakistani people also, they want freedom. They want democratic values and tolerance and freedom. I see the collapse that we're on, reform of this state that I do bring to this table, and that's with the energy source that is the foundation of our best interests to fight against a regime, especially Iran, who would seek to protect the good guys in this, the leaders of Israel and her friends, her allies, including us, all of these countries, especially Russia.

Yes, computer generated Pailin. Brilliant! Check it out: InterviewPalin.

Not News.

Clay Aiken is gay. Cancel this Friday's Presidential Debate because nobody saw this one coming and we're going to need plenty of time to discuss the far-reaching implications of this earthshattering revelation. That is all.

Having posted that Adama campaign poster earlier today, I've been in a bit of a BSG mode this evening. (Maybe I've just been needing a dose of some HUNKY HELO in my life...)

Anyway, I was poking around NBC's site, and noticed that they have a range of full episodes of different shows, including BSG. Clicking a bit further, I realized that these were episodes of the original series. I decided to take in one of the classic episodes -- I'd seen all of the original episodes many times growing up. I had a way of nostalgia, remember how much I enjoyed the show growing up -- the original BSG came out in 1978, which would have made me 5 at the time -- a little young to have watched the show when it originally aired, especially given that it only lasted until 1979, along with the brief Galactica 1980 show. Still, I have many vivid memories of the show and I know that many of my friends at the time were similarly enthralled.

Beyond the original nostalgia, I couldn't help but marvel at how much better the current show is. I know that's hardly a revelation -- the current series has been airing since the 2003 miniseries, but this was the first time that I've gone back to watch any of the original since I started watching the current incarnation of BSG.

Of course the production and special effects are a quantum leap from the original series, but what struck me most was how the tone of the two series differs. Sparked by the success of Star Wars, BSG and it's twin, Buck Rogers, also created by BSG's Glen Larson, sci fi on the small screen hadn't advanced much since the original Star Trek. I'm really proud that sci fi has become a more serious and legitimate form of story telling in the current series. Certainly, as with the original Star Trek, the producers of sci fi have always been able to use it as a vehicle on which to comment on society, but it's quite impressive to have a show that is able to transcend the genre and become a great story in it's own right.

As I've mentioned before, this isn't really news -- but sometimes you have to go back and see how far things have progressed. I suppose that's what is in my head the most about this -- not necessarily about BSG itself, but for life in general it's easy to get bogged down in what happens on a day to day basis. It's good to take a step back sometimes and really get a sense at how far you've come. It really helps me get a sense of appreciation for all that's happened over the years. That's true in my life in general and it's especially true in appreciating a shirtless Helo.

So Say We All!

I was talking with my friend Mikey today -- he's still having some heartburn about the election... While he can't stand McCain, he's not not sold on Obama and he's looking for another choice. Fortunately, I stumbled on someone that I think will appeal to many out there:

That's right, for those of you who need a President with military experience, Admiral William Adama has what it takes to lead the people to the promised land... even if it turns out that this promised land got nuked.

Getting My Shit Together

I've been quiet lately, I know. To top it off, I've been hit this week with a nice case of food poisoning, which has been OH so fun. Hopefully I'll be back on track soon.
