I've been without TV for 1 1/2 years or so, resorting to purchasing (which usually means downloading for free) the few shows that I think are worth taking up my unprecious time. I've known that Battlestar was a good one, and I had seen a few episodes back when it started but I never allowed myself to get sucked into it, I already had too many seasons of shit to catch up on while I was finishing school.
But now, I've finally indulged and have been sucked in completely. Resorting in buying the first two seasons and downloading the third (because it's not available yet). There are few shows that are worth my honesty and money, and this is definitely one of them.
I've missed him every time he's come through, and I SWORE I'd make it the next time. I finally got to see the great Fuck himself, Lewis Black, at the Davies Symphony Hall. Good stuff, my hat goes off to you Mr. Black.
My friend Steve asked Vear and myself to put together a song for him ala Flight of the Conchords (folk-comedy-duo) to use as a soundtrack for a project in one of his classes. Vear and I started strumming mindlessly on our stringy-tars and throwing ideas at eachother and came up with an early premise, tentatively titled Sir Steve of the Valley, and the Beast of Gaelic Descent. The folky narrative sparked an image in my mind so I threw this together last night, using the famous Trail's End and a pinch of Don Quixote as inspiration..
