Asta 2

Sci-Fi Friday Related Ramblings

I’m thinking Ioan Gruffudd could soon rival the six degrees of Kevin Bacon - at least in my world of TV and movie viewing. After viewing Daniel Deronda, I decided to look up the lead, Hugh Dancy, on Imdb. I had recently seen a promo on HBO for the upcoming Elizabeth I, starring Helen Mirren, and caught a glimpse of an actor who looked like this Hugh fella. Sure enough, he plays the Earl of Essex. What then caught my attention was that, amongst his credits, he played Galahad in King Arthur. OK, I just saw that movie again on TV recently and am hard pressed to picture him in it. Of course, I also paid no attention to the sickly guy who tried to off himself in ‘The Duchess on the Devil’ either. ;)

My point in all of this is is here I am watching ‘Deronda’ for Jamie, who is acting opposite Hugh, who would later be in ‘Arthur’ with Ioan, who Jamie starred in ‘Hornblower’ with. Then I think about Ioan working on a film with David Duchovny (another actor I like, shut up). It’s all connected….which makes me think of Buffy….and I’ll stop now.

And speaking of BSG (If you’re saying ‘No you aren’t’ then you didn’t click on the cut did you? :p), Ms carrielee informs me that James Callis is coming to Dragon*Con! Of course, he said that last year and we know what happened. I’ll forgive him if he actually shows…and brings Jamie.

I was looking at the Sci-Fi site earlier and I noticed that there is a new podcast up. Which struck me as odd since the season is over. It turns out they taped a writers meeting back in July of 2005. I listened to the first couple minutes and the good news is they talk about the back ten so no spoilers unless you haven’t seen all of season 2. The bad news is I only listened to a couple minutes and can’t report on how aggravating Ron may be. ;)

The BSG Hiatus Laura-and-Lee Fixathon: Sign-Ups have begun over at laura_lee_bsg. I mentioned this awhile ago, but let me reiterate, it’s not just for Lee/Laura fans it’s for Lee *and* Laura fans. I quote from the post, </i>The Laura-and-Lee Fixathon is open to shippers as well as folks who like their relationship the gen way, and contributions include stories, graphics and vids. Like a secret gift exchange ficathon-type-thing-only-with-more-than-just-fic-on-offer, see?</i> I have many talented people on my Flist who I’d love to see contribute and I’d hate to think you’re not doing so because you fear having to make them swap spit or other bodily fluids ;p. Heck, brynnmck is signed up and she’s a Lee/Kara shipper! Come on people, join the fun! And please don’t forget I know where some of you live. =)

I also volunteered to be a backup instigator, Mod, whatever for this. Come see me go mad with power!

Hmmmm, what else? Oh, there was ‘Doctor Who’ tonight. Collapse )
