First up to bat: I've been sort of inadvertently following the Auction Network's campaign to hire a host for their coverage of the Propworx BSG prop auction coming up in a couple of weeks. Tomorrow they will announce the winner, but right now they have some great audition reel material posted on youtube. If you go down to the videos section you will find the most recent ones are all the auditions for the BSG spot. Fun stuff, and I especially enjoy trying to answer the trivia questions before the candidates do. Lauren is my first choice; I want to see a woman up there, but not just any old booth babe. She's obviously a fan from her answers, and compared to other interviewees I watched, she has the best personality:
After finally updating my news feed for SciFi Wire since they changed the site at the end of December, I'm catching up on a couple of weeks of Wire news. Most recently they posted a new exclusive clip from Caprica. How dare they interfere while we are in the angst ridden final stretch of BSG? Well, it definitely summons some intrigue. I believe SciFi Wire video can be viewed internationally. If anyone outside of the USA can't view the video in that link, please mention it in the comments.
Check out Cinema Blend's "Best of 2008" where they give props to BSG for Eddie Olmos's performance as Bill Adama. I don't think I can forgive them for their choice of Best Drama though.
Lucy Lawless gets a nice feature in her hometown paper The New Zealand Herald. It's mostly concerning her work in the new release Bedtime Stories, but it's good to hear her also talk about how she's getting back to work in general.
Here's something random but really cool - This post from January 2008 at Robin Shantz's blog bloginhood was recently stumbled upon during a web search for some other BSG stock images. One should note that the photos shown in the post are of the set for season 4.0's final episode "Revelations" which aired in June. Hopefully it wasn't seen by too many fans until then (unless of course they wanted to be spoiled). Otherwise, how cool would it be to have been out for a hike and then stumble upon something like this?!
