Show Notes
For March the Smiths become one with the universe. We sing the praises of pigs everywhere, including Battlestar Galactica’s Gaius Baltar. We have a Roman god, late night TV (complete with male enhancements) as well as a city in a state of undress. We buckle our seat belts and discuss Depeche Mode’s stunning new video for “Wrong.” With The Black Hole and a space age song from Mari, this episode is outta this world. With music by The Sleep, Will Crewdson, Dave Eberhardt and Venus Hum. You say Dr. Seuss was Goth? Who knew?

    Really? Really? You had NO ONE to pick as one of the men “Neil Finds Attractive”? Really? No one? Not a one? Okay. I *will* remember this.
    I do not find James Callis attractive. BSG keeps showing him shirtless and pushing him as a sex symbol, but no…he is not. Now Jamie Bamber on ther other hand or the guy that plays Helo… yum.
    The Black Hole is a great cheesy sci-fi flick. Have always loved it. I also had the soundtrack and played it endlessly.
    Keep up the good work. Just love your show.

      Ah, see. I am not alone. I felt bad saying what I did, but for me it is true. At least Jamie Bamber resides in the *Guys Neil Finds Attractive* hall of fame. We’ll see if Helo ever makes it in… Glad you continue to enjoy the show. We do it all for you, of course!

    Mr. Bee,
    I’m so sorry you do not share in my assessment of Mr. Callis. But I am curious; reading between the lines of your comment, it seems like you have someone else specifically in mind. Perhaps someone in the Orlando area?

    You are getting warm Neil. 😛
    We are 3 episodes away from starting BSG 4.5. I must say that I am going to be very sad when it is all over. I have *never* been so involved with any TV series like BSG. We fnished last nigth around 11 with the Prez and friends jumping with the Cylon base. When the hybrid was plugged back in and screamed “JUMP” I let out a very loud and audible gay gasp. 🙂

    I totally heart Starlight.

    Oh, and I just found this, speaking of Steampunk BSG (which I can totally picture), which is excessively cool:
