TV REVIEW: BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: "The Oath" (Season 4, Episode 13)

Philip K. Dick once said that "Things show their true nature by how they decay." If that's the case, the people and society of Galactica is shown to have been pretty vile all along, based on what we've seen in these last three episodes. But back to this in a minute. More immediately: Wow!

Now that was a hell of an episode. Fan reaction has seemed pretty weak on the last two episodes, but I liked 'em myself. This one should be more of a crowd-pleaser, though, I think.

Howard Chaykin’s American Flagg was one of the best comics of the 80s, and a beloved staple of the emerging indie comics industry and the counterculture itself!” Well, yes, that’s all true and well and good, but check out the spelling, sparky: Normally there ain’t no “K” in “American,” is there?

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

“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.
