Ron D. Moore makes a tv show out of one of my favorite books of all time. I was just remarking to a friend that for all that I think BSG had it's problems, I still like that Ron D Moore 1) Makes it a point to have women and POCs in major roles*, 2) Tries to say interesting things about what's going on in contemporary culture, and 3) Used to read Star Trek fanzines. >_>
*I'll be curious if he'll do that in this show. I mean, it's 1744 Scotland, and I know that in England there was a population of ~75,000+ Africans at the time, so there should be some people there even if they weren't remarked on in the original text (just sayin'.).
Completely unrelated, we went looking at houses today. You know, looking for a place to rent is stressful, but looking for a place to buy is fucking TERRIFYING. Also, I bewilder the realtor when he and Scott are talking about kitchen space and natural light and blah blah blah and I'm like "NOPE I CAN'T FIT MY PRESS IN HERE, INADEQUATE, MOVE ON." ("But can't you take it apart and then reassemble it in the basement?" "No I can't. Also it weighs two tons, do we want to have a conversation about what a stupid idea it is to carry two tons of metal down these iddy biddy steps? I SAID GOOD DAY SIR." (No I didn't say that.) Yeah, I need to work on my priorities, but--I DON'T WANNA.)
- I'm feelin': hopeful
