You know... it's really sad, when you get right down to it... that so many people in a position to have influence, dedicate their time to issues like gay marriages, abortions and conflicting articles of faith. Poverty, war, heath care, clean water, disease, and environmental protection are all - each and every one of them taken alone, never mind as a group - affect more people and are dramatically more socially and morally important. It just seems so stupid... so insipid, and insulting that people feel gay marriages and abortions are more important than those other issues. It's just wrong.

Ok... so dig it... work contracting stress...
selling our house stress...
building a house and making a million hurry-up choices type stress...
getting taxes done stress and then...
sorting out the financial issues about the house sale and purchase stress.
I'm just say'en... flames may suddenly shoot out of my eyes...
I may be an x-man after all...

So I watched Episode 12 of BSG (season 2) last night... the space battle representation (the resurrection ship and Apollos issue)... was just fricking fabulous. The distance shots from Apollos perspective... were brilliant!!!!! This is what I loved ... LOVED about Firefly... the "new take" on presenting a space battle... abandoning cliches, embracing current technologies ability to read my mental images from books I read forever ago... or games I played when 386s were brand new... (I mean, besides the idea that the bad guy "fighter ships" in the WingCommander - Privateer game looked like cylon raiders... !!! :D :D) Damn I had fun watching that episode. :)



K... see ya. :D
