Science Fiction Music Review #2: "Oh, Perilous World!" by Rasputina

Republibot 3.0's picture

“Rasputina” is a deliberately odd, Cello-driven rock group out of Brooklyn, New York. They have five studio albums so far, and are evidently at work on a sixth, but for our purposes today we’ll be talking about their most recent one, “Oh Perilous World.” (2007). Ordinarily the band wanders from art rock to string-driven 90s alterna-music, to deliberately old timey songs, with a hint of vintage ELO thrown in here and there.

Roundtable Discussion #1: So what is Science Fiction, anyway?

Theoretically, the Republibot website is all about asking questions, and following them through to the answers, whether we like the ones we get or not. Sometimes the questions are big and lofty like “What is the nature of the good?” and sometimes of less abstract value, like “Are The Flintstones a ripoff of The Honeymooners?” Either way, though, the truth will win out in the end.

TV REVIEW: BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: “A Disquiet Follows My Soul.” (Season 4, Episode 12)

Republibot 3.0's picture

If last week’s episode was all about the shock of dealing with the death of hope, this week was about the grieving process. There are stages to these things, and I suspect the show is deliberately following them. Next week, presumably, will be about anger. Then acceptance. Bargaining is probably in there somewhere, I’m not much of a twelve-stepper so I’m not sure about it.
