Asta 2

The Lows and Highs of Saturday

Low: Learned I need to prioritize the hard way (damn you LJ!) and got to the post office next door five minutes after it closed.
High: Drove to the one downtown and there was no line.

Low: Realized after I mailed one of the packages I forgot to include something. D'Oh!
High: At least postage is cheap for mailing a single disc.

Low: Went to five different stores and, apparently, my lovely city is only carrying the TV Guide's with 'Lost' and 'Star Trek' on the cover.
High: However, I have the August issue of Out magazine. Wheeeeeeee!!! And there is an additional picture in it! More Wheeeeeeee!!!

Low: Spent money I shouldn't have.
High: Will no longer have to borrow Mom's suitcase because mine is too big and bulky to take on the plane.

Low: Apparently the braintrust at Sci-Fi aired a new Season 3 trailer during the 2am showing of BSG. WTF? Because it would have made no sense to air it during the NEW 'Stargates'. :p
High: Maureen Ryan of The Chicago Tribune did a nice write up on the upcoming season on BSG. There are spoilers (nothing new to me ;), but if you don't care about those evil things go here. And for the spoilerphobes who, like me, have been dying for some webisode info

Bradley Thompson and his writing partner, David Weddle, produced 10 2-minute “Battlestar Galactica” Webisodes which could debut online as early as August. Those Webisodes will concern the birth of the resistance movement on New Caprica (as you’ll recall from the show’s breathtaking finale, the Cylons, after leaving the human survivors alone on New Caprica for months, invaded the planet and took over).

Weddle says the Webisodes will give viewers more information about why certain resistance fighters take certain actions fairly early in Season 3. You don’t need to have seen the Webisodes to enjoy Season 3, but it sounds like you’ll have much more backstory on the resistance fighters if you do happen to see the Web stories. “You find out why they do what they do,” Thompson said.

We’ll meet two new characters in the Webisodes, which take place a few months after the Cylon invasion, and they’ll also feature Tigh, Cally and her baby, Tyrol and other characters we already know.

Thompson said he and Weddle didn’t really view the Webisodes as 10 totally discrete stories, but more “a half-hour episode broken into 10 chunks.

Thanks for the webisode info! I've been wondering what is up with those things and hoping that they'd be up soon.

Last I checked my local stores still didn't have next week's TV Guide or the August issue of Out. But they're bound to show up one of these days!
It looked like the 'Out' magazines were just put out in the stores I was at (B&N and a localish store). I'd say you should see them by Monday. If for some reason you can't find 'Out', let me know and I'll pick up another copy for you.

Btw, the localish store I bought my copies at normally has 'Out' in the second row of mags, but, for some reason, they had it front and center this month. ;-)
Hmm. It seems that all of my flist is having problems finding the BSG cover of TV Guide. I saw one at my local Wal-Mart, but decided against picking it up. Maybe I should, since it seems to be such a rarity!
Apparently the one boxful they produced was shipped to your city. I suggest buying all you can find and heading to ebay. ;)
Low: felt crappy all day
High: bitched about it with asta over lunch!

the webisode thing is interesting. reminds me a little bit of some of the media that came out before the third matrix movie (all that animatrix stuff--and the video game). huh.

I couldn't decide if bitching qualified as Low or High. ;)

The webisodes were once rumored to be ten minutes each and include much of the cast. This sounds more realistic. I'm betting we don't see Kara or Laura because Katee and Mary's contracts would be structured differently as above the title stars. I like the idea of them enriching what we'll see come October.
Tigh! Tigh'll be in the webisodes! Yay! Plus, all that other stuff is good, too. :P Actually, the start of the resistance sounds very interesting, I'm looking forward to that.
thanx for the webisode info! :) can't wait...

i remember reading at some point that they were going to be longer though... *pouts*

well, at least we get them! :)
I recall hearing they would be longer which seemed odd to me since most webisodes run from 1 to 2 minutes. Considering how expensive the show is to film, I think it would be cost prohibitive to do mini-episodes. With a two minute running time, it's the equivalent of a deleted scene. Now if we had only had webisodes last season, Lee and Dee would have made a lot more sense. ;p
if you do the math based on what the original rumor said, all the webisodes put together would form a 2 hour movie... i should have thought it was too good to be true.

to us yes! i'm still unconvinced by the lee/dee thing. on the other hand, my mother picked up on it since early season 2. ;' she just stared at me and told me "dee is hitting on apollo, isn't she?"
Oh, thank you for the webisode info! I am hanging out to see them. It's such a long long hiatus...
