Anytime I move into a new home before I unpack so much as my toothbrush or a roll of toilet paper I make sure to christen the new joint with this picture.
A picture of Captain Apollo and Lt. Starbuck from Battlestar Galactica (the poor man's bastardization of Star Trek/Star Wars).
Doesn't this picture inspire you?
The last video tape I ever bought was Battlestar Galactica the movie. I think I bought it for two dollars and ninety nine cents. What a find and great investment. The deal of a life time! I've replaced just about every VHS tape that I consider to be an important part of my soul with a DVD copy, but I'm not going to replace Battlestar. I'm too proud of it.
There's no need to go into the great acting, the strong scripts or the amazing special affects. At night I sleep with the VHS tape under my pillow.
But more importantly I want to focus on the most underutilized word in the dictionary feldercarb.
Feldercarb is a word that should be used at least once an hour. For example: I get tons of feldercarb in my various e-mail accounts everyday. Sometimes in the form of advertisements, and sometimes from my boss. I hate his brand of feldercarb the worst. "Frack! More feldercarb from the boss". How much feldercarb can one man produce? I only see the boss a couple of times a month, so most of the time we communicate through e-mail. Thank God. I would much rather receive his feldercarb in an e-mail then watch it seep from his mouth.
Anyway, the next show I intend on watching on DVD is the new Battlestar Galactica from the Sci-Fi Channel. I've heard nothing but good things about it, but I just don't have the time to watch it right now. With the holidays coming and football there's too much feldercarb going on in my life right now. Hopefully I'll have a chance to watch it in March when life come to screeching halt.
I really feel like I should say more about the guy that played Starbuck, but I'll leave that feldercarb for another time. If you're really starved for some Starbuck action Biddie wrote some real heart warming stuff about the guy on her blog yesterday.
