At the risk of getting too deep (haha, right) or in angering any serious Believer types (fuck off, christians), or in becoming a serious serious asshole, I just want to comment on the recent BSG episode, NOT to SPOIL, but to just add to the current issue that everyone is skirting around. I have absolutely no problem with the idea of machines developing emotions and personalities. Humans are essentially a bunch of chemicals reacting a certain way. most of our "emotions" can be broken down into one or two elements really. So who's to say an evolved series of cyborg/robots wouldn't?

That sounds dorky. But if people are going to argue the presence of 'souls' is the difference, then someone else could just as easily argue for the lack of souls in humans. Maybe we're just meat. In the BSG universe, they are supposed to survivors of an earlier race, from Earth presumably. So there is no theory of evolution as there is no evidence to trace backward. Have we even seen any animals? Hell no. They have technology instead. So it should be no suprise that they would find the Cylons (whom they built as slaves which everyone seems to be forgetting) so incredibly threatening. It implies something about all the 'humans' humanity. It puts their gods into question as well. These are religious people and the Cylons imply that maybe humans aren't so fucking special. If the Cylons are Toasters, then humans are, what? Hamburgers? Each race is only seeking survival after all. That's a pretty primitive, instinctual drive.

If the Cylons were really just machines, then why would the humans think torture would even work? Why not just reprogram them? They did build the original models. So for those who've been saying it's justifible to use torture on something that's just a machine? Uh...what? Torture implies emotion. Implies humanity. So what the fuck exactly are you condoning?

So I am very shallow (and so what? suck it, bitches)and have spent the afternoon staring at the many many lucious screen caps from the last Battlestar Galactica episode that Kittie sent me (danke danke)and then making very silly icons and things from them. Hmmmm I kept having to minimize the images because while I was making one the others would distract me. They are pics to make smart women (and gay mens) go guh.

Anyway, as some of my icons featured lustful Paula Cole lyrics, I thought I would just once post the lyrics to the song I was thinking of, in case others would just think I was (more of) a nutjob.

love, love

You make me feel like a sticky pistil...
Leaning into her stamen
You make me feel like a mister sunshine...
You make me feel like splendor in the grass...
While we’re rollin’
Damn skippy baby
You make me feel like the amazon’s runnin’ between...
My thighs


You make me feel love, love, love, love, love
Love, love, love, love, love
You make me feel love, love, love, love, love
Love, love, love, love

You make me feel like a candy apple
All red and horny
You make me feel like I wanna be a dumb blonde
In a centerfold, the girl next door
And I would open the door and...
I’d be all wet
With my tits soaking through this tiny little t-shirt...
That I’m wearing
And you would open the door and tie...
Me up to the bed


Lover, but I don’t know who I am
Am I barry white? am I isis? ohhh...
Lover, I’m laced with your unconscious
Oh baby babe babe baby
I will be your desdemona ahhhhh...

Take your time

You make me feel ahaa
You make me feel woowoo baby
You make me feel ahaa mmm
You make me feel loved

happy happy happy!!!! and other fangirl news, even though i know how story ends, the ad for new eps of Fullmetal Alchemist made me giggle.
don't ask me why. Greene....

Ridiculous Pic

Also, Battlestar Galactica and Mormonism? EW EW EW. What the hell were they thinking?
ummmm even knowing what this season of BSG is all about, and what is going to happen, I have to just say....what the hell was that all about? no spoilers...though obviously Apollo and Zarek have only just begun to know each other in a physical sense. their teasing is adorable!
to bed that is. First, this week's BSG. DRAMATIC shortage of their cuteness, however, what was there was well worth the wait. Also, Gaius, amazing as usual. Secondly, constant reminders to myself are not helping (Sesshomaru is a pretty youkai. pretty pretty, as the Great Tyrant would say). And then some side notes, Hey Kittie...wanna go see Constantine? It looks bad and apparently has some super Catholic themes which were annoying some reviewers on the radio. We shall love I am sure.

Hmm, also was gonna tell you something dammit. Oh yes! Bret is sculpting some IOS figurines for me. Though he made Rene a little too buff, and I had to correct him. Rene is a skinny anoxeric little monkey. Now i can finally fondle the Ne Ne.
I gots so many pretty fines right now I just don't know what to do. I have new (well old but I lost the originals years ago) Portishead this week. I finally got my hands on B. Monkey. I have sexy manga just a handsbreath away. New Battlestar Gallactica to freak out and gush over and glare at the Brits who have already seen the apparent *thrusting*. And I have been loving the Ghost in the Shell Standalone Complex TV series (which I have been renting at work, cheating yes I know) I don't even like the movie Ghost in the Shell but I love the show and the theme song is stuck in my head. Yoko Kanno you genius. And my most annoying coworker spent his last day with me today. He transfers out and I will never see him again! Bwahaha! Muriel's Wedding was on tv behind me and now Byron and Shelley are screwing around in some Ken Russell film and I had chocolate cake and there are Inu Yasha episodes on all week that I have never seen before!!! I am going to burst I can't take it!

*And* all sober. A whole week even though I craved vodka cranberries (I refuse to say Cap Codders) like mad on Wednesday.

I am gorgeous sexy beast who busily writes notes on Chapter Nineteen and realizing, with some guilt, that it was *six months* between chapters last time. Sorry.

How weird would it be to have someone describe you as incredible math? I kind of like it though. "She's incredible math."

Yoko Kanno knows how to make Latin both ethereal and sexy.
