bio_chrisHey, it happens.

I think I can reveal to you now my deep, dark, geek secret, one that I have strained to conceal from even my closest friends: I have not watched the new Battlestar Galactica.

Not at all. Saw part of the first episode of the first miniseries, just never got into it. I recognize the quality of the show, but there wasn’t enough humor to bring me back.

Wow! That feels… really good to get off my chest. I’ve been living in shame all these years, nodding and smiling as my friends discussed story arcs, and now I can walk proud and BSG-less. I don’t like all the shows my peers like, and it’s OK!

Why are you looking at me like that? Stop judging me! STOP JUDGING ME!

Let the debate begin

bio_chrisSpeaking of fantasy sci-fi — as opposed to Fantasy and Science Fiction — check out the fantasy figures populating Scott Meyer’s happy place over at Basic Instructions. Not a bad selection, although I’d add a Terminator (and not Arnie).

Adam is (I hope) back home by now, after several harrowing days of flight delays and postponements. I hear D.C. ground control was having problems with the rapid and  unexpected buildup of hope in the air over the nation’s capitol and it threw off their whole schedule.

bio_chrisLook! We’re viral!

Although this is not the greatest viral video I’ve seen this week. That “honor” goes to “Worst Commercial Placement Ever,” a capture of a portion of a Battlestar Galactica show from a Canadian channel which chose the worst possible commercial to follow an especially dramatic scene. (Warning: BSG spoiler!) (Warning: sick sick sick…)

Anyway, here’s the subject of today’s strip.

bio_chrisYes, there is PC and Mac slash fiction.

No, you don’t want to know any more than that.

By the way: Adam uses a Mac. I use a PC. Make of it what you will.
